Another suggestion to boost activity on TS
Posted 09 February 2011 - 07:35 PM
I have alot to say but i'll start by keeping this short. I noticed a ressurange of all these TS topics so i wanted to throw out a big shoutout to whitetib, aurdead, chrislawrence, nimixes, members of strike-team, orochi, farang, and to all of those who have shown interest in sustaining growth and a competative player base for the future of the game we all know and love~
Anyways, i just wanted to bring up a suggestion that has been offered before but one i felt has been ignored or wasn't stressed enough and/or went into great detail about. I am talking about cross-game competition between RA2 and TS. Please allow me to explain. (this is all v shorthand so plz feel free to elaborate on any points if necessary)
RA 2 vs TS tourny:
-a competition between active players onboth games to boost activity now, can be implemeted rather quickly
-a point based system for players on both games to compete against one another one.
-same clans on both games, competiting to see which one does better on each game.
-prizes held at the end of the month to congralutate those who competed
Why this would be beneficial:
-some players need the extra 'jelly' on their bread, this would be a good incentive to start playing again
-seeing significant boost in activity on either game will take a while, having players from both games compete with one another can be done rather quickly
-a reason to have an updated HOF or prizes at the end of the month
How to get started:
-We could find players on both games interested in participating in the tourny
-Offer good first month prize incentives
-Code a new ladder that incorporates players from both games and how they rank against one another
-initiate a tournyment right away

And there's the problem already. How many TS players actually have RA 2?
The other, probably more obvious problem would be that it takes ages to learn a game. I can only speak for TS, since I didn't ever play RA2, but there is absolutely no chance that anyone of RA2 stands half a chance unless they used to play TS competitively at some point.
I hate to be this negative, just throwing in my opinion.

Hmm well I played TS last night, probably my first proper stab at it for 6 years. I was learning a few things quite quickly. Although as an RA2 player I miss the building placement with hotkeys, and using T to select a particular unit, not sure if theres a different hot key for that in ts.. but anyway I like the idea, it could work, it might not. You never know, depends what the prizes are and what lengths people are willing to go to.
I agree, however, I don't think enough players would sign up for this. Although,I believe there is no harm in trying.

i meant something on the lines like we combine the ladders, so TS players can compete with Ra 2 players on a point based system or something without actually having to jump from one game to another.
I dont wot the scene is like on ra 2 but TS players could use another incentive to play and by having a new roster of players to compete against, maybe ppl will start playing more, dnno just thoughts
like say there are 2 players, **** and tom
**** plays TS and wins 10 games and loses 2 1v1s and has 200 points
tom plays ra2 and has 10 wins and 2 loses in 1v1 and but has 205 points
there fore tom would be rank 1 and **** rank 2 on a new ladder or something like that
without having to actually play each other's game of choice, they can still compete on a ladder against one another
at the end of the month we can award a prize to the top competitor and say like 'ra2' wins the month or 'ts' wins the month
hell we got a big enough community here to do this, we shud utilize it

Farang this isnt a joke of ray i guess.
it was a great idea with the updated HOF and with his idea who 'won' the month,ra2 or ts.
finally some great ideas to build up our all loved game~
we can't say,great or **** idea,we just have to try it, for example,1 month or something and watch how its working.

Can't see why they didnt do this before with their ladders....
oh no wait yes i can, its because the idea ****ing blows

The last 6 months i've noticed about 5 players on the 1v1 ladder and only a handful of clans.
TS needs more competition if its ever going to survive.
Competing vs our fellow Ra 2 players would increase the player base to compete with relatively quickly.
Is there a way we can code a new ladder that incorporates both games? like on a point based system or something?

I brought up somting similar to this in the lounge sometime last year or before and got flamed like crazy. I told them TS is free to come try it out.
This is perfect and i wuldnt mind owning some Ra2 folk.
