1 / Re: How to acquire more players
« on: January 13, 2023, 10:40:43 AM »
I was thinking about this the other day. Having competitive 1v1s was the golden age of war2 in my opinion. For me 1v1s were what made me a better player and it can definitely do the same for others. I find being stuck in random 4v4s rather boring and pointless. If we can somehow fix the built in ladder system or even make an IGL league where you need to sign up and report losses, I'd be down to get back into 1v1ing more often to show support. I could make one if it still exists if people would be down for that.

PS: I made another forum account from my phone because I couldnt remember my password (and pw reset doesnt work) Password is saved on my computer (where I am now)

If saying that a product is trash is crying then...

I've restarted and tried on different days. Uninstalled and installed again. It's garbage for free I couldn't imagine paying for this

I cant even open the game anymore. Opens then closes back to desktop. Such a garbage product. I've had to play BWately because of it.

3-1 teaboy/me vs lone/swift

OUCH! Looks like Lone never got his confidence back after the 7-1 thrashing I handed him. Long lasting affects..

From what I remember whenever we had cases ladder weather on ru or east, they always ended up fizzling away. I think anything is still worth  shot though.

I think the main thing I'm trying to get going here is playing more maps apart from gow. Otherwise this will be just another same old gow ladder weather 1s or 2s.

IMO it doesn't have to be automated.

If thats what we decide I don't mind being admin of the caes ladder or whatever we choose.

Can we create a poll or something to get more input?

If people want to log on and play gow for a couple hours and log off that's cool. There doesn't seem to be interest in any upgrading. So I guess people like stuff the way it is.

Sometimes I get a desire to do some stuff but with no support/help there's no use.

I get it resetting the ladder and starting ladder say in June is not a huge issue. But I just thought of to try something different with the map pool and see how that goes. How could we implement that. If we make ladder for a certain map pool I think it would promote diversity instead of just gow. This would even help out newer players (obviously they won't win) but if everyone is learning new maps then there is no clear favorite to win the season. We could use user created maps for a few of the pool. I know Nedro and some other people have made pretty decent ones.

I mean I've been playing gow since 98 and can continue playing it, I just think some changes and to freshen things up and can't really damage anything to try it.

You don't need to be mean about it EQ. Every mod is a volunteer, and so would be anyone thats working on a new ladder or any other project for that matter. We can be upset and disappointed but until we learn to code and program on our own we can't rely on other people. The ones with that knowledge can use it as they want, even if it is creating useless things (maybe not useless to them)

I know you can't have a ladder being completely 100% legit all the time. But we could try. And do something like demote rank if inactive 3 days, that way there is constant movement and dodging isn't a big issue. No one will get rank 1 and go smurf or go inactive because he will lose rank quick. I think that's a good start. I'm not sure how the ELO or MMR systems work to know what's best or if there is another option.

Hey it was worth a shot. There are ways to make this work but if no ones interested then it is what it is. Speaking for myself, when I log on for 6 hours a week I'd prefer to play meaningful games rather then stomping in big 4v4s with random newbs. Maybe that's just me.

Thats why you do a 8-10 map pool and it's different for each ladder season. Only those specific maps are for the ladder. Make it like the Ironman was and have it choose random map from that map pool for the game. We have alot of smart people in this community who can make this stuff happen, unfortunately I'm not one of them.

Have ladder seasons of 2-3 months each with a champ of each season

End of year Tourney with all season winners

Get promoted/demoted to different tiers (like sc2, GM, diamond, gold etc)

Nah. Our player base too old to take anything like this seriously. Players generally just log in play a few game and chat with friends then log off.

I understand what you mean, but somehow we still get tournies here and there with participants. We don't even need to do it "tourney" style where it's done in 1 day. Make it so they play each other within a specific time frame of 1 week or so so its more flexible. I think it could work.

I don't mind helping out with something like this. I wouldn't be able to help with any technical stuff because I'm retarded In that aspect but I could help for sure. I could even set time aside with the end of the season tourney and do some commentary live or on replays. Anything would help grow the game right.

Well I mean people complain that there's no new players coming in, the game is dying, Yada Yada Yada. But refuse to implement modern things to make gaming interesting. I'm not super competitive these days but it would be nice for something to look forward to (like an end to a ladder season) and just to get that "oh hey I'm #4 this season" kinda thing. As opposed to a Neverending ladder with no actual point to it. I'm sure others would agree. No matter how casual a player is everyone still likes to play competitive games. There is no real point of mods these days to be honest. If the only thing mods do is transfer stats from various names then let the user do that themselves somehow.
Ive been saying this since I came back in 2019. This game needs universal automatic updates so everyone is on the same playing field, same plug-ins etc. I get the nostalgicness of the game is important but so is keeping it up to date.

We could learn alot if we take a look at starcraft 1 BW. The game is just about as old as this but still brings in super competitive matches and tourneys. They still get updates with new map pools for the new ladder season. Can't we do that as well? Each new ladder season let's say gets a new 10 map pool to 1v1 on. It would keep things interesting instead of just GOW. Even for people watching streams imagine how interesting it would be for them when you're 1v1ing someone on the last few days of the ladder season with the #1 spot up for grabs, they also like to see an assortment of maps. Thus helping the game grow.
Maybe I'm just talking to a wall because I don't think any of this will realistically happen, just wishful thinking.
