If Jackboot Games is serious about showing the public at large that Festung Europa is supposedly a realistic game about Western front battles, then they have to treat their depiction of the subject matter seriously and not play it up as a another big orchestra / commercial parody. Which is almost, if not, all products about War tend to fall into.

Trailers like Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days (Especially about the multiplayer one) show how gun battles play out. Loud and Brutal. No glamour and No romanticism. I think im confident to say that those trailers accurratly depicts everyones experience in playing the Darkest Hour mod. "You're working together as a team. That means eyes and ears all the time, watching each others backs. Don't start getting any ideas because you're not smart enough for that."

 

I also would like to add that im against the idea of a scoreboard and defeat / victory / general music.

First of all, welcome to the FE community  :)

I am not 100% sure about what do you mean here.

 

What I understood is that you would be happy to see in FE's marketing a more realist, nitty-gritty approach instead of a more "romantic" one. Correct me if I am wrong.

Music, or other stuff that appeals some players and not some others should be going to get an option in the menus  ;) , as long as we're not talking about something that can make some players have an advantage over each other.

Precisely.

You can't beat Gaijin when it comes to gritty trailers:

War Thunder isn't any different from the drone footage that you can find on Youtube that is edited like an overblown music video or a hyped Hollywood production.

 

What would benefit Festung Europa is to go more Raw. A bit more "boring"

And the crossroads battle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DOSvLWK5Z2A

Note the subtle gameplay parallels of players putting on bayonetes on the fly, waiting for the smoke before they attack an objective, the commander calling in hasty artillery on the counter attacking team.

And the shootout in the movie Heat shows the unromantic tension of a sudden, true Life And Death scenario –  the sense of immediate overwhelming danger and desperate urgency. Both of these elements i think should be present in your trailers.

You could take inspiration from squad story trailers in how to demostrate the gameplay mechanics and team dynamic but still somehow keeping the thematic element.

Ah the HEAT scene. The biggest bullet holes 5.56 will ever punch into cars.
