You won't get enough new players to replace the ones quitting. However, you can make it easier for us oldies by opening the competitions subforum... splitting it was dumb.
You should search the forums for tron is dying/dead/doomed. Even I have said it before, its not true. As for vets quitting, I dont see that too often really, and there is a pretty solid core of extremely good people across all game types that are welcoming to new players.
Tron has never had a very big playerbase, and I think us adding more game modes actually hurt it a little, since it spreads the available players over more servers. Used to be there was only really two or three options at most for servers that were worth a shit, now there are easily 10, depending on your choice of game modes or lack thereof.
I do think a forum split was a terrible idea, you should have just gave them a subforum in the server section like we used to do. Granted it doesnt see a lot of traffic, but if its for events it might, **** if I know.
I kinda agree with liz here, in the end most of the players around might as well just quit and leave tron, with a few coming by and thinking "oh well no one plays anymore" and just leave for good again. Splitting forums did really hurt the already wounded community of this game.
I mean really we're calling a community core about 10-15 players that still play on regular basis, I'm sorry but that's just ridiculous. Are you really defending a community that has around the same amount of players as a small clan on league or dota or whatever? eh... no, just no.
And yeah instead of making this kind of threads (with useless topics IMHO) make some voting that actually make any difference I mean we´re still discussing a forum split that was months ago?, damn. The amount of people that wanted the split in the first place were a minority, facts. Make some voting like "Who's here still and still cares about this game" and so on.
Take away happy fun time and you lose about 40% of this "core community", lol.
And yes I agree with someone saying we rely a lot on devs. And there's nothing wrong with that, if we actually HAD DEVELOPERS. There's like 2 of them that are active on the forums. I had a game running I would definitely give a damn about this fine game, that has entertained me for quite some time. I get we all have jobs and family, but seriously has no one ever thought "oh damn this game seems to slowly losing their player base, let's do something about it, yes it's a free game, but that's not an excuse to not give a sh*t.
Oh but no the only thing we get are this kind of changes like forum splitting and players getting banned, oh dear lord. And no, I'm not offending anyone, if developers were doing their jobs I would praise the job, but that is not likely to happen is it?
Stop this madness and save tron, pretty please?
