Having trouble getting Stealthbot set up right now and I really haven't had the time to try to work it out.  Maybe someone could assist and throw a bot in the channel to advertise?

Your comment is a waste of time.

If people want to use other people's ideas and put a twist on them .. you don't get to decide if nobody else will like it.

There are already people showing interest. So stfu. Don't play if it's not your thing. The end

TBH Rit I like the enthusiasm.

But I need to tell you honestly your not going to get the player base to start playing maps like "archers" and "mini bgh."
I get it your more of a customs guy but I will stay try and stick to chop farms. That will keep people interested.

Well, I will admit that this event didn't quite turn out the way I wanted it to.  However, we did have a few games tonight that I'm okay with.  We played a Mini BGH 8 Player FFA (with 5 of us and some comps).  Even played a little Arena.  It turned out to be pretty fun.  My goal with this event was to draw attention to some players that haven't played in a while and not to the current player base.  The current player base is going to do what it always does which is play GOW and Chop Farms. 

We had one old player that knew about the event and got on to play.  The one we played the Archers game with.  They got frustrated, wondered how we were building so fast, and then logged off.  I think this is an important realization as to why we are unable to hold onto new players or players that haven't played in a very long time. 

When I first started playing on the RU server, there used to be a ton of custom players.  We'd play BGH maps, Archers, Chop Mad, 62 Peons, etc.  This was my target for this event.  Mafia, thorn_heart_, shanona413, ReallyFast, Claw, Silent, Masta{HR}, JaRo{HR}, mousEtopher, Hayley, Mutiny, NaPROxen-, Allegra-, Ibuprofen-, ZoLoFt-, Flea (who still plays), Fat~Budz, SlaPPy, SuicideGirl, Werk, NightPM, ZaXo, Flush, and the list can go on and on.  With the exception of Flea, none of them play anymore.  Heck, I would have been okay with some old BNE players getting on.  And I would have played those maps too.  Looking back on all of those names, I believe they all just got older and moved on with their lives, which is pretty much what happened to me.  Which is why I haven't played in quite some time and barely get to play now. 

It's not that I'm against GOW and Chop Farms.  But this game is and will always be more than just those two maps to me personally.  I'm all for advertising the game as a whole. 

In general, there's not much sense in me trying to draw in a player base that is already there because they are simply just going to play anyway.  And with Archers and Mini BgH tonight, we did get players.  So it's not that no one wants to play these maps.

By the way, I do appreciate the fact that you made a point to try to participate in this event.  I accept this failure in promoting an event and see it as something to learn from so that the next one I promote will possibly be better.

Alright EQ. Before, I was just going to ignore and pretend you're not there.  But I've had a few bananas tonight so let's do this.  We all know you EQ.  You complain about everything.  "Admins should be doing this and doing that but I'll just do nothing but complain."  "You steal this from this person."  "Who is Rit? He some monkey that the admin got from jungle to manipulate peoples and rigged community votes. I think he really mousEtopher and now I think he Lightbringer-!"  Nothing but you starting things and never finishing them (what was that league again?).  Constant negativity toward those who are actually accomplishing things.  Talk, talk, talk and no action and always a petty excuse for not following through with anything.  Who are you to criticize when you don't even have it in you to make these changes yourself?

This whole idea that I'm "stealing" some idea from Duda is ridiculous.  And even if you see a similarity in it, why the hell would it matter?  I think what Duda is doing is awesome and I'm glad to see him doing it.  Duda had no influence on this event at all.  Your accusations are just childish.

I think events like this are great, and I’m glad to see people are putting them together. I’ve followed this server and forum for several years now, from when Xurnt was doing replay commentary and tournament promotion (that’s what pointed me to the forum and website). There have been some rough patches, but it’s good to see things bouncing back.
