Noobs (newcomers) is our future. Children.
Pros (playing 25 years) is our past.
Society is alive when there is lots of children there, and when children get experience from old.
Our children from 2015-2016 grew up and going to become old soon.
We need many newcomers with different skills in game. Some of them will go out, but several will grow up and they be a new generation.
^^Truthfully i doubt most of the player base cares where the game is hosted. People who play war2 20-30 hours a week want to play with the best players. The point Koorb was trying to make was war2usa is a “newb” server.
Most of old players don't care where to host. They care whom they play with.
Also, most newcomers don't care whom to play with, their main part is to join somewhere and see many people online.
Most people don’t actually care about growing war2. They only care about entertaining themselves. If and when pros do start playing on Tupac’s server I will be curious to see if censorship will ensue when players start to trash talk each other.
That would be interesting to see how BabyShark will handle trash-talking on her server if old trash-talking pros will join her. I'd say they will go away most likely, to keep their trash-talk anywhere else. So BabyShark will loose part of community. Or she will just relax and let people do what whey want. Or she become as biassed as our "so bad" .ru admins and even worse. As she had not be able to find consensus with .ru team.
This game is dying out because it’s over 25 years old and is only supported by a couple people. Kids play ps4, fortenight, and xbox. Try getting a 12 year old to play war2. Let me know how that goes.
Game is dying because it's old, it's a natural process: everything and everybody in our world have it's birth and it's death. War2 also.
But that process could depend on us: if we attract newcomers, let them get experience from olds, then the community will grow up.
If we ban newcomers, making them problems with server and gaming, they will leave and community will die.
Ragner saw war2 at the 1-st time when he was 4. He joined the server when he was 11. Now he sufficiently improved his skills and maybe he is going to become #1 in ladder.
Last months russian community makes a big job for attracting newcomers. Mostly russian newcomers as we know russian better than others.
Russian-spoken team just have no forces to attract people speaking other languages.
Let everyone of our active war2 players attract newcomers from your nationality or who you can attract! That will help the community to grow up more and more.
I am against splitting the community as Tupac & BabyShark do now with their server, as they get 8-15 people on one server and 15-30 on another at the same time. Why we need that splitting if we could let them all play together?
BabyShark should attract people not to usa or ru, but into our common community. Splitting to servers should be just nominal ant technical and not touch our newcomers.
That is what i want for future of war2.
