All that we do in the last year were trying to save old players, web was main platform for all tournaments. But look what we have now, less players in web and only 1-2 players from new platform for comunity FOR 1 YEAR.

I'm just answering for Sysy's post about low skill of new players, but YOU ALL did nothing to help new players to grow up.



Ok vigu, I hear you.

But, you are making accusations that there has been no attempts to get new players to play and you are making complaints that the 'dinosaurs' are doing nothing to get new people to play.

I take exception to that. I think you will find that there have been several players who have tried Steam AND tried to let ANYONE play them in Steam in an effort to reach out to new players. However, it gets tiresome to have people type obscenities in the chat about you if you play out quick, make a block, etc. Even with clear game titles, this happens. Very few people in Steam even bother to respond if you try to engage them in discussion. In fact, I have had only ONE player who seemed like they would move forward. They even entered a league and then quit.

Frankly, I play the game because:
1. I like the game.
2. I like to play against friends I have made on the DoW site
3. I like to play the game competitively

You will notice I do not play TTR because I want to get online and try to teach/recruit new competitive players. I don't think I am alone on this list whether a person is a 'dinosaur' or not. I also do not think I am the only competitive player who has taken time to try to work with a new player even though that is not my prime motivation to be online in Steam or the web app.

And, now I ask you. What have YOU done to help new players in Steam or elsewhere to grow up? Perhaps you have done many things. And, perhaps you are very disappointed that maybe one of those people out of all of the people you've tried to encourage have joined the community. That can be very discouraging. Now, consider that some of the 'dinosaurs' have tried to do this for more years (on both web and now Steam) with a similar success rate. How long do you try with minimal success before you move on to something else?

So, instead of blaming dinosaurs and the competitive community for doing nothing to recruit new players, try another tactic.

Suggest ways that we should be reaching out to these people.

Here are some suggestions that I can make:
1. Make the opening QT for Nation's Cup be held in Steam. Promote the heck out of it and try to get lots of noise going in that lobby. DEAL with the fact that there are some issues with the app realizing that the QT isn't as serious as the NC matches.

2. Supposedly, you can still go to the app version that allows you to be in the lobby of the web version as well. Go to STeam when NC is running and encourage players to come watch some top matches. Get those people to talk to you in skype (or whatever) about what is happening in the game so they can learn.

3. Go to Steam and look for players ranked 1400+ (or lower if you wish) and start inviting them to a QT you host. Or set up a mini-league of steam players for a given map?

4. Encourage more people to participate in the All Map event that has been tried. Though with the number of maps out there now....

My opinions, take them as you will.
