Future of HZ
« on: May 21, 2011, 03:10:28 PM »

Is an arena in Trench Wars.

In the past whenever TW hosted hockey they would always have 20+ looking to play.  In the past few days they've gotten an automated bot to host hockey (im sure Arnk will be thrilled to hear!).  So for the past 3-4 hours on Saturday morning/afternoon they have had full 6v6 games.  All while HZ will sit empty all day, with maybe a game or two in the evening.  Despite HZ's module and settings being infinitely better than the shitstorm they have over there. 



General consensus as to why they don't go to HZ to play(plus troydork):

     Annie> because
     Annie> its too hard to get picked
     Annie> in hz
     Annie> they only pick vets
  kid kaos> i played pub in hz yesterday
 TroydanTW> vets want to play with vets
  kid kaos> and ppl were screaming for scrim
     Annie> if scrim didnt exist
     Annie> id play hz hockey
       mci> yea
    kesser> ya they dont play new ppl


I've argued for 2+ years that we need an active, inclusive, pub to revitalize the zone - without a scrim to kill it.  HZ has been sucking for a few years now, it's not just the "same population drop-off we get every offseason." 

so my question is: are we ever going to try and build our population again or are we going to appease the WIR's of hz and let it decline into becoming a "2-3 scrim matches at 8pm and an occasional RSHL league game" zone?

TL;DR: HZ sucks, do something

you can't take scrim away because pub sucks for people that actually want to play with other good players. People want to play with people of similar or at least comparable skill levels.  This is all just a mental thing. If the 20 people that didnt want to play hz because they can't get picked in scrim would just come to the zone, that's already a full pub game and then some already.

thrill is super awkward and likely rubs it out to himself in the mirror

its called RSHL.  Its called teamscrim.  The majority of my time (and yours) in HZ we didn't have anything except pub, and teamscrim in a different arena for a while.  We played pub which was almost always active during the day - even if it was with noobies.  

If we are going to cater to the 15 vet clique that logs on at 8pm to scrim and kill pub, that's fine, but HZ will become a TW sideshow.

Scrim has better rules and voting too.  That's one thing I like about it.  I think others like it because they don't have to mash =0 and =1 for minutes trying to get into pub.  A 'vet' can just ask to get picked in scrim and probably will.  Doubt we'll ever see scrim disappear.  I'm not saying that's a good thing though.

The majority of my time (and yours) in HZ we didn't have anything except pub, and teamscrim in a different arena for a while.  

we r probably approaching the era where we have had scrim for the majority of our hz experience but if we must play your game then the majority of my time in HZ we had mini which was played with captains and voting and was the glory days of hz... not pub which ppl even thought was shitty back then. the whole reason we have ASSS just about is because every one would go to ?go mini to 1) play mini or 2) use it as a chat room cuz that was the arena every one was in, not ?go 0.
