Feel free to post here, respond to the thread title and ignore ryu/ganz/equinox shitposts.
This is what i think is the best for w2 and the course of action i'd take:
[[ Keep the tournament/icon policy as it is, icons as rewards are a great idea, distinction and encouragement. And with ~tora~'s $$, things may get more alive than usual. It's also a good thing that social media (well, facebook) informs people about stuff, special props to burnt and smeagol starting the facebook events ]]
1. Polish & debug the anti-hack while consantly informing and slowly forcing people to get the AH client
2. Implement an effective ban for notorious hackers, which we have tons, given the size of w2 community. Hardware ban sounds perfect
3. The 'command' hostbot is doing great I believe, anyone 'can' host. However, I would add a constant autohosting bot, with game name like "New players welcome", hosting compstomps such as 2v2, because...
...4. As soon as all previous points are done, a massive advertisement should happen. These are cool things, worth mentioning and showing off. However, what's the number one thing that stops people from playing? Lack of games. Nooblords log in, can't see a game on the game list and log off, or they SEE a game and get booted. A juicy "New players welcome" would definitely have their interest.
And that is how i see the war2 revival. Thoughts?
