Is it though?

T1,2,3 could use pve for sure. I was [edited] clueless for 5k games, mostly due to bottom feeding sealclubbers. Pve solves that clusterfuck at least.

Also WOOT :P

 

2719 dmg done in a Jagpathner - but 49,000 credit loss - i sense a complete spam of premium rounds was used lol

 Single tier battles would basically break the foundational WG grind which their business model relies on. Further it would be annoying as hell if you are the sort of player who doesn't just play 6 or 8 (or whichever tiers) as you'd need to change servers all the time. My guess is WG would sooner just shut the ANZ server than go for something like this.

 

What kills the business model is discouraging new players to take up and stay with the game, and denying current players the actual chance of playing a game.

 

If they shut down the AU server then that is the beginning of the end. The Asia number will then fall to probably 8k peak, with the same declining trend. I know the reason why numbers are declining and am giving the Admins some options to reverse the decline. When the shut down the KR server the peak numbers were 30k. Now they are about 12k 16 months later. The time of complacency and business as usual is at an end. If my job was on the line, I would be VERY proactive to remedy obvious customer problems.

To be fair i don't think anyone expected the bulk of the KR players to last long. They'd been on a server with a vastly different meta and economy and would have had a very jolting time on arriving here.

 

As to low tier players - agree there needs to be a solution for those players. To be honest i'm a little surprised WG leave ANZ open during the day. For those who are new enough to not appreciate the server numbers they may think the game is dead rather than simply connect to HK to get games.

As for single-tier matches, I'm not even sure THAT'S viable during low-pop hours. I've been on the Aus server during those times when the pop is 100-200 players and even with everyone in General chat agreeing on a single tier to play, I still can't get in a game that actually fires off.

Basically the server isn't viable at the moment until some time in the afternoon for east AU/NZ time. Even a note in client would help new players figure out they are on the wrong server to actually get battles.

I will add to this, up to 6 pm NZ time the ANZ server is dead, only about a max of 200 to 200 players on in the afternoons. After 6 pm  NZ time the server fires up, So basically us players in NZ get about a max of 5 hours playtime per night and still keep sensible hours so we can have a healthy amount of sleep.

All they have to do it use the Skirmish Mode (tier6 and 8)interface and make everyone a Legionnaire by default. You could easily create a game with even 30 people on the server. They have all the coding written, it would actually require very little work, and would be an instant solution to the low server problem.

 

I have been raising this issue for some time - I am often one of those AUS server loyalists trying to get the ball rolling - and why the Admins ignore this issue in a time of declining player numbers boggles my mind.

Of course, I am trying to 3 mark my first tonk. :P It was just liberal use of gold for 2nd mark after standard rounding first mark.

It eases my frustrations with t8 mm nicely.


The first 9000 were a struggle ... I have fun now.

There's a post in this thread which I'm amazed has lasted ten days.
