This isn't a well thought out idea to bring new players in but instead it's to keep our own logged on.

 

 

So for as long as I can remember, since I came back, I normally check the online list to see if it's worth logging on.  If I see a small amount of people, I just dont get on but I do feel like playing.  If i'm assuming correctly, i'd say that there's a few of you who do the same thing.  So yeah... just log on even if there's no one on.  You'll only add to other people wanting to get on.  I know I would.

Personaly i think player attitude's are one of the main deterants at the moment. I think if people want to keep these games alive and continue to play them they should portray this in a positive manner rather than argueing/flaming and insulting players in the lobby. Its rather annoying when u logon and instantly one of the usual suspect's spamming/flaming etc, same goes for in game, playig against player's who are abusive and flame you, start arguements over nothing is imo something that deter's player's. But i like Edd's idea in theory, however its rather frustrating when u go online and see the nick just sitting in the lobby and you get no response.

I believe so too. 

 

If players finally ignored the wins, losses and lames including their skill level differences, while having a similar attitude to Chinese players or even like the players on SC2 act, it would be a lot nice and games would be funner. 

 

Nowadays if some one pulls a engi or eats, it turns into a huge drama fest, which is really sad. The chinese play without rules between themselves and you don't see them breaking out into tears. Like a kid who just dropped their ice cream. 

 

On SC2 these so called lames are just "cheese" cheap tactics, back in the day it was common to see them being used and players were more used to countering them. 

I just see it as people wanting an easy game not a challenging one. Which is why most people play sovs to begin with.

 

Anyway that's my two cents on the attitudes.

The sovs bit was some unnecessary rubbish
To boost activity the game must be free and the game must be compatible with modern OS

Players don't want to ignore skill level differences. I have seen pros who said they want it like in the old days when pros had their own room you know like usa command and lesser skill had theirs. I have had m8's who no longer even speak to me because they got good and now hang with other pros and I am a middle player. And of course there are some players who were nice to me when I was noobier, but then I improved some, almost beat them, and they flamed, hard. Durrrr. Can't win................
