This Game is Dying

Postby davisgabriel820 » Mon Mar 07, 2022 5:04 pm

This game is dying. Player numbers are getting increasingly lower, and that's devastating to see. Don't get me wrong, this game has had an AWESOME lifespan, but it still has so much potential. I've yet to find another game like it on the Steam store.

At this point, I feel it'd be worthwhile to disable the coven game modes as well as any other game modes aside from Classic, Ranked Practice, and Ranked. Either that, or more promotion for this game needs to be done. There's so much work that's been put into it. I don't wanna see it go away, but it feels like there isn't a lot of effort being put in by the devs at this point

I mean, ffs, repeal some bans at this point. You all went HAM. Get out the gamethrowers, leave the people who curse. There's a function for muting. That's enough. This is just so depressing to see.

Why would the Coven gamemodes get disabled when Coven All/Any and the rotating modes are two of the most popular gamemodes in the game? And you only want to leave Classic, RP and Ranked, even though 2 of those three (Classic and Ranked) are some of the least populated (and least popular) gamemodes in the entire game.

As for appealing bans: This is not something that is going to change. We don't need a wholly toxic game with people spouting racist and homophobic crap just to buff the player count. People can stick to the rules, it's not that hard, tens of thousands of players have done so for many years.

As for not a lot of effort being put in: The Devs are currently working on a new game, meaning ToS is on the backburner.
Furthermore, last I checked the player count has been more or less the same ever since the game went pay-to-play. And the only reason it dipped when it went pay-to-play is because of all the bot accounts that got removed.

I think appealing to letting banned players back in would actually do more harm to player numbers in the long run because most people don't wanna deal with toxic players trying to be funny with poor taste jokes instead of actually playing the game.

I personally think that lack of updates current broken game modes that aren't fun for a casual audience outside all any and TT. Is a reason why but also because generally the games been around for a long time now, devs are more focused on their new game, which doesn't mean the games being neglected but i don't think it would be out of the ordinary to expect no balance changes for the future, which is sad and might make the game stale to vets over a long time. (I personally rather have tos changes then a new game about walking around similar to amougus, as i enjoy the text based and role interactions)

I mean im just happy this games around still now even if the engagement is lower then it used to be. But I understand some frustration.

I would love to see what stats you're referencing, because 1-4k players on at peak times isn't exactly the same as the several thousand on previously. Also, to say that the only reason player count dipped is because of the bot accounts getting removed is absurd. There's going to be a natural dip over time, I recognize that, but banning people for using profanity against someone making a brainless play is just overkill in the long run. Not allowing the appealing of bans is further ridiculous. I'm not saying let the homophobic racists back into the game. However, God forbid we allow someone to appeal a ban that's 3+ months old. If nothing else, a simple system of strikes rolling off after 6 months to a year would also serve as a reasonable deterrent. You cannot tell me that every ban and/or suspension has been 100% reasonable. I've played this game for YEARS, and some of the most fun I've had was getting flamed by other people because the humor is just so off-the-walls funny.

I'm not really into the whole Amongus-like adaptation. I'll certainly give it a try, but this is a one-of-a-kind game that's going to be hard to replicate in a contemporary style. My entire point here is that the core game is being abandoned, and splitting the population into Coven versus standard modes is only killing it quicker.

If you got banned is because you evaded the hard filter

You can say stupid, idiot, dumbass, braindead, even r*tard (which is agreed to be a slur) so if you got banned for using profanity you totally desrved it

Where did I say I got banned? You've contributed nothing to this.

I clarified a missconception you had on the rules

if you ban people for using profanity over a braindead play thats overkill on the long run

There are 87 games at the time of this writing. The thousands of (presumably automated) accounts logged in and not playing are of no consequence.

Actually, they consider repeated use of those words, or whenever those words are directed at a player, that's a bannable offense. No misconception had here. You can look through appeals to see that in action.

How a game with such catchy music can die is the real question!

People who got banned five plus years ago for being toxic aren't necessarily going to still be toxic, people do change you know. If they are still toxic, ban them again. It's not like giving people a second chance is saying that they can never be banned again.

Not everyone has even that as disposable income dude. Most people have barely enough to pay for their necessities.
