Its not just about getting "more" players.
The game needs to bring back players and also maintain the current players. I know several people who still have some performance issues and that is why they don't play the game. Most of my performance issues are resolved and so I actually started playing the game.
The game also needs content and especially more maps. We don't have a lot of maps right now and so it can get a bit boring for the average player, while more engaged players will learn maps inside out.
Good thing is that we already know that we will get more maps and the devs will increase how well the game runs across different specs.
I also thing free weekends would be a good idea AFTER the release of some patches. By after the release I mean 2-3 weeks not when a patch is out. Patches can often cause some issues and the last thing you want new people getting a bad first impression.
I also think that putting the game (not sure if that is currently possible) to the epic launcher/store. This would also bring some new positive attention.
Optimize the game so it handles lower system requirements and also runs smooth for a lot more people who have rigs within current requirements.
Continue to balance the pvp, and take players like sevrawr187 seriously instead of banning them, as he have shown a lot of balancing flaws within current pvp that can not be swept under the carpet if a popular pvp long term is a goal - It may be understandable that NWI wanted him away for a while for marketing reasons if they follow up by fixing the exploits he has shown - You can equip several Molotov’s singlehandedly and block point entries while capping in some places, just an example that balancing needs more focus in the future.
Several more maps that are cqb focused to get the charm of the original Insurgency. District and Ministry was awesome for pvp and created a lot of tactical options.
introducing different game-modes that recognize and reward slower game-play would be awesome as well, i get the feeling the "mil-sim" community is staying away from this one because of the pace at which the map's and objective system reward faster game-play......and not slower. Balance it,...might increase your player base.
I think the ban was very justified. The sensible think to do is to contact the developers about exploits and not put them on Youtube for the public to see. Another aspect is that he kept using these exploits for his personal gain. On Youtube to promote his channel (not sure if he also monetized) and also in the game to get some easy kills. It's not like he discovered a exploit, made the developers aware of it and then stopped doing it.
just optimize the game
i configured the game to low graphics and i get 40-60 fps but i stutter and lag as fuck making it unplayable but when i put it on high i get less than 20 fps and it doesn't lag or stutter
what the fuck is that fix the game and optimize the game for all graphics settings especially for lowend pcs
