Server still dying a slow death
« on: August 20, 2017, 09:56:27 PM »
not trying to be a debbie downer ... but the most users i've seen online in the last few months has been like mid 60's .. tops.. typically floating in the 40's.

no thoughts/desire to try to rebuild some of the community? at this rate there won't be a community in another year or two.

we're all cool with that?

yeah.. and the last time you heard "that song"  .. the user base peaked out around 80 on the weekends.. and the time before that, it peaked out at about 100 on the weekends .. and the time we heard that song before that we were getting up to 120 on the weekends.

so in the last 10 years our community has been cut in half.. which wouldnt be a big deal if it went from 500 to 250 .. but now that we're floating around 40-60, it's difficult to get games without waiting, and people don't like waiting. or even worse, say there are 10 chop players online, and one person is hosting back to back ... 2 people are getting left out every game. people only have so much patience. when they log on to play war2, they want to play war2.

i guess the main thing is to first see if anyone even cares.. if they don't care there's no solution to be had. if enough people do care then brainstorming should definitely be happening.

the server has had the same numbers that fluctuate for the the last 12 years, the server isnt dying m8 that story has been told since 2000.
The game will still last at least another 10 years with current numbers, peaking and unpeaking durin times of the year

players leave, old players come back, players leave, old players come back, cycle keeps reapeating

a good way to tell would to state how many gow games are played each year in total
so if you had every year recorded 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 etc, u can see a dip or not

@tk[as]

Jokes and trolling aside,

I don't think anyone disagrees the server could be better than it is.
All things considered we do have it good. Blizzard dropped Warcraft 2, washed their hands and said they won't remaster it. The fact we even have an active community of Warcraft 2 players is an accomplishment.

Well, as long as majority of the playerbase continues to not allow new players to play/learn, the community can never be expected to grow. a small minority that will play with them just isnt enough, as they cannot be expected to be on for every new player at any time of the day/night. I get why people wouldn't want to play with someone new, but the playerbase is way too small to just grow by itself.
