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)

Damn, totally thought training a few players would save the entire community/game. Plan B I guess.

Yeah because that was the core message of my post.  Great contribution to the supposed discussion you're trying to have.

That's funny. I was Googling trying to find some sort of online site where you can custom ladders and report games on. After a bit I gave up. I was wondering how many people would actually report it and would care?

If you do that, then you can do 2s ladder as well, right? What WG was asking for.

You would have to take a SS of every game then?

Historically I have liked 3s/4s but lately I've hated it. It doesn't contribute to me getting any better. I think the biggest reason I'm bored with 3s/4s is because of the skill discrepancy which makes spots super important. Any team can destroy any other team because if you get the right spots, your nib is dead in 2 secs and now it's a 3v4.

Personally, 1s is just too mentally exhausting. Maybe I'm just a pussy, lol.

Is the current ladder still not reporting GOW games? Blid was the one that did that. I don't see why he can't undo it.

It is, we fixed 2-3 months ago. But we need to change the system how its done today.

OMG a 1s and team ladder?! Brilliant! If only I hadn’t brought this up 10000 times before. ;)

Good post Harry!

I think the IGl on Kali was the best aspect of WC2.  Find a way to recreate that and maybe you will have players come back. 

In the end though, only way to retain new players is to play in new player games(comp stomps, water maps, funky maps).. Trog does this well and is increasing his blueprint in gog.  Stop the massive orig gow picks.

also the discord is very lazy, needs to be reorganized with actual players chatting to help your hundreds of new players coming in with not a single response to
them.

we need more publicity, more streamers, more advertise about game.
many peoples even not know that game still alive.
now  mostly only u8 alone desperately struggling and making good streams and videos.
war2 is a game that deserves to be played but peoples just not know about it.
need to show everyone how good this game is.

Mistral is it possible to bring back “war2tv” I felt like that was a good feature to have on the forums.
war2 > war3
