war2.warcraft.org/forum is down right now so i tried to go to occult.war2.ru and uhh. iL? might wanna fix that, didn't that used to be a back-up of the old war2 forum?
i know this special version of war2 existed where the client would make noises for certain stuff and i wanted to try to find it
Ahhh lol, did you pm him about that?
i am desperately not trying to be negative but that is the reality of the situation as i see it... i actually agree with dellam.
expecting individual members within the community to download/install/run programs that notify them when a game gets out so they can hurry up and join before it restarts? that's a real idea? that's a reasonable solution?
if that's where we are as a community we might as well just broadcast on the server "dear war2.ru, server is dead.. thanks for playing... go find a new game to play now"
Not a solution, but a workaround to a problem we can't just wave a magic wand and fix. We've been over and over this -- we need dedicated programming for bug fixes & improvements, we need advertising, we need people who can dedicate time to hand-holding newbs & community involvement. What we have is volunteers contributing as much time & money as they can to these things but it's not enough to ever "revive" the game. We'd need a pretty substantial budget for that, which we don't have.
- What ever happened to the crowdfunding idea? It was good, it had a lot of energy, it never seemed to really get off the ground though?
- Yamon's idea is good -- to find some semi-famous YT person with war2 nostalgia and ask them to give the game a shoutout to their millions of subscribers. But first we've got to find them, and then we've got to get their attention. How many messages do you get per day when you have twelve million
subscribers..? Still pondering
- I'm also pretty responsive lately to implementing any suggestions you or anyone can come up with - ad banners, icons, improving the site, or w/e
- I still plan to do the war2 business cards!
