As someone who hasn't played for a while, but quite likes sticking his nose in, here's my pennorth. Smile


I have always been extremely impressed by the amount of work that many individuals put into the organisation of everything that goes on here – it is a terrible shame that what these people have contributed to so brilliantly in the past almost no longer exists.

It is possible that the historically great players of this game are all getting bored of it at roughly the same time. The issues surrounding Web/Steam certainly don't encourage people to want to stay if they have any doubts. Issues surrounding Windows 10 and Java and all of the other updates are just adding to the frustrations.


For what it's worth, in my view there have been too many ways of trying to find out who is the Number 1 player, what with all the different rankings and tournaments. I'm fairly sure it must be great to be Number 1 in the "standard" rankings when you get there, but everyone knows that this is very transient and everyone knows who the best players are, regardless of their current rank or score. Ask everyone in the Community to write down even as few as their 25 top players and I reckon that (at least) the same 10 or 15 players would be on 99 per cent of the lists. Why not just acknowledge that there are 30 or 50 or whatever very good players, and some of them just happen to have won some stuff.


Steam and Web are two very different animals. The vast majority of the Steam (ahem) Community has no knowledge of, and does not care about, the Java history of the game. Until a number of new players on that platform decide that, hey, tournaments are a great idea and are prepared to put the time in, Steam will remain essentially only for the casual player.


I can understand our Russian friends liking for Steam if it is primarily what they know and what they have played on, but if in six months time players such as Stas have no real variety of credible opposition on that platform, then I suspect that this will in itself become very boring, even with the new maps.


Of course, Java is very much in a Catch 22 – DoW dont resource it, and as the overall percentage of players on Java naturally decreases at a rapid rate, there is even less need for them to do so. Sadly, Steam is the new VHS and thanks to the metaphorical porn industry that is the tablet, Java will inevitably go the way of Betamax, regardless of what DoW say their future plans are.

It is extremely sad that it has come to this, but, unfortunately, that is progress for you. It’s hard for everyone to keep caring for the Java game when clearly DoW don’t seem to even care for it themselves. And at the end of the day, that is the real problem.
