Helping the game
« on: July 16, 2015, 10:54:46 AM »
This is a 20-year-old game

There are some diehards around that continue to play, but that base of diehards will, inevitably, dwindle slowly.  So we have fewer and fewer players

There's two obvious best ways to keep the community going:

1) Bring back old players, or make old players who drop in want to stick around
-Possible advertising, tournaments, etc.
-Do not greet players who come back (http://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,1122.0.html) with a bunch of flames between Equinox and Ryu and Winchester, do not shit on them for posts they made 5 years ago.
-Don't ban names you don't recognize or people with fewer games or bad records from your games.  Give them a chance to show what they can do
ie - don't be a shithead

2) Bring in new players, see if they can learn the game
-Create clans like dw for new players, don't shit on people for being in newb clans
-Help them learn the game, figure out latency
-If you won't let them play, at least let them watch.  s9? -> ban is a good way to make sure none of the new players that find the server ever stick around or learn the game
ie - don't be a shithead (recurring theme)

3) Programming things that could help accomplish the above
-Lat fixes, autohost/host bot
-Any other suggestions?

Shouldn't be too difficult to manage that.


-Any other suggestions?


Might be a good idea to do your job as a mod and remove the flame before it gets out of hand.

FIXED.  Although you really shouldnt be teaching anything regarding history since your ego gets in the way of actual historical facts.  Such as your dreamed up Lone rapes swift in a 2v1 let alone a 1v1 BS.  You could have at least made it believable and said it was a 2v1 with Jessu001 and Some unknown noob.
Dk At hall is cause I started with temple at start and didn't need the castle . Not a hack .  I wouldn't bother editing a ss btw

Real point to Help the game:

1- Change War2Ru for something new like, War2World, War2Planet, War2Heart, War2War or War2pornstar, anything, but stop letting know this is russian server.

2- Get rid of useless admin like Blid and Foonat if they are not planning to do something real, and way much more important get rid of the hacker like lightbringer-

3- Add new Admins like Tk, Tupac, Lance and Myself!

4- Put peoples at the right thing to do to save time and work.. IL, Tupac, Lance as programmar devlopper, moustopher as webmaster and forum master, Tk burnt and i as Taking cares of the game channel, tournament and website updates.

5- Stop doing your retard selfish and lazy admins.

Good luck!

Mr.120apm aka U8! Best player of the world losing 4v3 against Phillip5256.

Does Alex play? I'll have to hit him up, I feel like he and I would be at comparable skill levels.

I think more streaming would help -- people'd see it on the home page when they visit, before they download, and maybe be more inclined to try multiplayer. The client gets tons of downloads, the problem is that most of the people only ever play single. A live feed of the main channel could be cool too, so they could see how friendly and awesome our community is in real time.

An outside perspective from a player who has played pretty consistently over the past 3-4 months - I would say the most "helpful" players to the community would be {lance}, 00Joe and Burnt with {lance} being far and away the best of the bunch (in my humble opinion).  He joins most public games, not just the a/a x/x games with 4 watching a 2v2.  He will play with anyone and give pointers.  00Joe also helps, but has his moments where he gets fed up and let's it be known lolol.

Just my humble opinion on players who make it worth coming back for (a fresh perspective versus the same 10 whom I've noticed post back and forth against each other).  There are others who are great to play with - Casi0, Yamon, PBRMEASAP just to name a few others.

The server has a good core of constant players, but it is true that the "newbs" will get the boot quickly unless they chat and let it be known they suck and want to get better.

Anyone decent can beat swift/viruz some of the time given the randomness/luck factor involved on a map like gow.
