I think people are missing the point.

In order to keep the community alive and slowly grow it, you don't need to do ANYTHING except show up and play normally in Steam.

New players need to SEE competitive TTR in action, not hear about it from one person. They need to see 20 1600+ players in the lobby, they need to see the tournaments going on (not told "go over to Java" and watch them).

Saying people complain and say obscenities during matches for being blocked, etc, how is that different than in Java, I bet everyone has an ignore list of those people on Java. How many rage-quits have you had to sit through the years... at least there is a timer in steam.

If a new player goes into steam to try it out and plays 20 games and only sees and plays against scrubs, how long do you think they will last (if they are competitive) before they leave and move onto a different game/app. I've been in the steam lobby and have someone say.. "wow I've never seem someone with a rating over 1600". Also there is no one in the lobby to help educate people even about simple things like what is Karma, let alone about tournaments.

So yes it will be the dinosaurs fault if it dies. They are causing their own extinction. I know players have burned out, especially ones that have done a lot like Sysyphus, etc., but just moving over to steam isn't asking much. Not asking to TD tournaments, update tiki, and so on. Just play like normal on steam rather than java.

As for suggestions to DoW. I saw some from various people like dea, gff, etc., but from my point of view they were a little too broad. Its all well and good to say there needs to be a "log", it is different to actually implement it easily on a phone/tablet/desktop. I think DoW just needed more concrete and fewer goals for us tournament players.

I understand if your computer can't run TTR on steam (my old laptop couldn't after I updated to windows 10), or somehow steam messes with your computer, but if your only argument is you don't like the steam version, then I think you are just being closed minded. I've played hundreds of games on it now, and its perfectly fine. A little annoying for some things, and a few glitches now and then, but no worse than getting booted off java and having a bot take a turn during a tournament.

If tournaments start on Steam I will play, but in the meantime I will play some other online board games with Sysyphus and anyone else who wants to play. If you can't beat Sysyphus at TTR, here's a chance... he's not very good at most other board games...lol (though he catches on very quickly by copying!)
