The calendar is very important. I'm sorry to say I don't see War2 continuously growing. What will keep this small community alive is TOURNAMENTS. Set periods of time where we push for people to login for a few days per month.
It is AMAZING that there are enough players that most of the time, I can still just log in and play with someone almost right away! However, as things trend downward this will no longer be the case. As it is, there are times that I log in and no ones really playing (however this is probably related to the fact that the majority of the community is on the other side of the world as me)
In the future, there may not be enough players for us to log in and play whenever we want. Tournaments will be what gets people together online at the same time. Once tournaments die, then we all just have to email eachother or something to schedule matches.
From a Web Design perspective:
Downvote on a manual forum calendar BIGTIME, it may only take a few minutes to manually transfer info to a forum calendar - but those few minutes are a waste of time and admins have enough to do without having to do that too
Upvote on putting a link to the calendar as a forum topic LIKE DOWNLOADS, simple, problem solved, no manual updates needed
Upvote on putting the Calendar on the frontpage of War2.ru / en.war2.ru
Upvote on highlighting tournaments on the frontpage
