Im not happy with the current Joust or Combo Situation.
It are both awesome official gamemods but somehow its completely game-over for these mods.
It makes me a bit sad and the last 2days I was thinking about how we could make them active again.
First of all, Is this something the community would like? I personally really enjoy Joust & Combo.
Joust is 1n1 which makes it very personal and it makes you a better defender in Elite.
Combo is extremely fast paced and it requires a different form of teamwork.
Anyways, how could we make these mods active again?
- Make sure we dont have 100x rank #1 ( this really always disturbs me. I want motivation to rank up + LP )
- Make Combo as easily to find as Joust ( so dont hide it behind a mania-link )
- Promote it
, again, on the maniaplanet website.
- Promote it , again, In-game
- Organise a small cup with a small hardware/money/swag prize?
Let it be streamed by NickYaco on the maniaplanet-twitch
- Automatically install these titles if the user does not have them and make them default-size "big"
These ideas are a start, but clearly not enough... So drop a comment with your own ideas
- Double LP week if you play Joust/Combo
- Extra planets if you play Joust/Combo
There used to be zotac-cups with 100+ players every week. What happened? Seriously.
