@Jellyfoosh thanks for the info I appreciate the feedback, great start but will need a replay feature to keep interested between these tornes but if you are having that does make me think a replay feature might come with the event but I can only speculate.
Now I first want to say that I love the game in both sp and mp and feel some real hard work has gone into the game which makes me sad that mp, in particular, has been left to die despite some great unit additions and balancing (whilst not always perfect I feel it has been making progress step by step.
There is one main area that is lacking and that's community features which is crazy as any game without a community no matter how good will collapse, the main ways to keep one interested in mp is to have balance patches and new units which the devs have done however most important is a sense of competition and a connection with streamers and other content makers which could easily be done with a replay feature something I have posted time and time again since beta as tournaments could be conducted and be cast which in turn helps create a better view of balance in the game and get people excited to try new things.
even though they ran a tournament and have competitive seasons honestly who cares i am not trying to be harsh as I would love this kinda thing normally but without being able to see people compete in a structured tournament there is no reason to be exited. I would point out Creative assembly total Warhammer series whilst its made some mistakes the game has allowed a large following of YouTubers to support the game and has even used these casters to host their own tournaments which has been a significant portion of the game's success. even old games like dawn of war 2 and supreme commander have a following due to this.Whilst i don't think gothic will have as mainstream appeal it had a chance there where many content creators following the game at launch and a few months after launch and again good views but the lack of replay and the other mentioned features have meant all but a few have moved on due to the difficulty involved and as such many players have done the same.
As I said this is sad as all I can expect is that the player base keeps declining, I am already finding it hard to get 1v1's most of the time and I have not been able to play 2v2's for well over a month due to the times involved in finding matches as such I have pretty much lost the drive to play mp.
such a shame to see so much promise and such a good game fade like this but when you can't put these basic features that have been in games as a standard for well over a decade its to be expected. Dont think i will bother posting something like this again whilst it normally gets decent views, comments and likes I have not seen the team comment since my first one back in beta which was "we will pass it on"
