Wow man I don't know where you are even coming from. Why the hate lol??? It wasn't a knock on you or your tourneys specifically. If you notice, there are like 10 tournaments scheduled within a few weeks of each other. In fact, I don't think anyone showed up to your last tournament.
And barring 1 that had 10, you just validated exactly what I said. Due to many factors including a smaller player pool than before, there is a tourney participation fatigue. It's an obvious phenomenon. When brilliant people like yourself and others took money from your own pocket to host tournaments for the first time, it was an awesome thing and people were excited to participate. Now it's just like... meh.
There are 0 daily active pball players anyways. Quick hasn't logged in awhile, you haven't been on, mano and I and you-know played a few games, but there is not a clear cut community like there once was. Please calm down... I don't get you sometimes. There was ZERO attack on you. We're talking about the server and how to improve it. If that's not something you are interested in, then don't post.
Edit: I'm also trying to be solution oriented and come up with ideas to help the server. In addition to, as I said in my disclaimer, I'm woefully ignorant on how to implement such solutions. I'm waiting for someone to say "I have the solution, but you have to give me $4k". If that's the case, then we or me can donate such to get this going. Even as a loyal War2er, I'm slowly becoming disenfranchized by comments like Smeagol's above and the lack of movement forward for this game. Ru killed East prematurely and it wasn't ready for the massive shift of players from Battle.net to PvPgn. So, I'm trying to fix it with the collective help of everyone. It just doesn't seem so simple. I wish we had more gurus or someone willing to do the fix, and hold the fix hostage for XXXX money and we pay it to fix this game. It sucks that few people are on, and even fewer can host. Currently 35 users online... at least 4 are bots, 20 are afk, and of the 11 actually online, 3 can host.
