Not enough gold players to form a full gold server.

 

Not enough silver players to form a silver server.

No. 

 

I think I made a few better suggestions for when the game gets more players. Until then it should stay as it is right now.

I mean rn if the threat stay the same doesn't matter the engine upgrade the game will die

There are way more than enough people to full a silver server the problem is that thanks to gold it would be impossible to form a bronze district because there aren't enough new players to play between them

G1 tried this once, the community cried, G1 reverted the change (and this was with a higher population)

 

Been there, done that. No thank you, we don't need a repeat

and not enough golds to have a functioning gold server (or max 1 so you'd have to decide between fin/wf) to begin with. golds leave, skill shifts lower, some silvers become gold, suddenly can't play, leave. flawless idea.

 

not to mention that golds cant play with their (new) friends because they'd rather not play against better enemies so they'd either play alone or the golds downrank.

 

doesn't work, was tried before. shambles.

also, there are hundreds of post about this. threat segregation, lock districts, you name it.

 

it's easy to do and it's quite dumb to do. more reasonable ideas were to kick/lock people out of bronze (permanently?) after ever reaching gold.

if every gold will go to gold district than the district will be full already

the  excuse that it's not enough golds to play on gold district is stupid

why is this in Guides, Tips and Strategy when its a Game & Forum Suggestions thread?

 

anyways its been answered before how there isn't enough player base to pull that off

also not all golds would have gold normally in gold district especially with how mission objectives can get more points than kills

 matchmaking and mission points need to be  reworked to show a players true skill  which is what Little Orbit is planning to work on after the Engine Upgrade

Until then however segregating players would only make us lose more playerbase and would not be a good idea

if a gold dethreats and makes a bronze get carried to silver threat then should he be forced to play in silver?

yes played yesterday on waterfront

I played around one hour and a half and I saw   3 silvers and bronze and  the rest are only golds just in a one hour and half

the amount  of golds I saw is enough to make  more than half district  in  gold district  but there are more golds than that 

 

if just any gold really want to back to gold district it has already happened

golds in bronze are either dethreaters who are exploiting to troll bronzes or silvers who are not good enough to play against golds who can possibly go gold from being in bronze

 

normally there's 2 to 3 full districts in Jericho server among all the players and that's counting all districts.

 

While it may look like we can just toss golds in gold district some of them are only silvers who either became gold from

matchmaking being broken ,

being carried  to gold status ,

a silver who is borderline gold from being in bronze but can probably become bronze from not being good enough to play golds ,

or dethreaters who definitely shouldn't be in bronze

 

until matchmaking is fixed to represent a players true skills then threat will highly not be accurate of a players true skill.

what if you turn gold from being carried?

That wouldn't be fair to toss you in gold district just like that.

Also most of the time there are not enough golds on to be in gold district which is why golds go to silver and silvers get forced into bronze.

Little Orbit mentioned plans for fixing matchmaking but I do not recall where the thread is to link it to you.

 

until matchmaking is fixed , it is not a good idea to force golds to gold district because some are not real golds they are only silvers who shouldn't be gold but matchmaking is broken.

Generally speaking, Golds that purposefully dethreat aren't true Golds. The standard for becoming Gold is so low that if a Silver player plays against enough Bronze they can easily become Gold. Perhaps there should be, simply, no threats - or at least make threats not control which district you can go in.

 

Redoing what G1 did will literally kill the game, I know I won't play if that happens - just like I stopped playing in 2015. Just saying.

Lemme explain something.


Dethreating was NOT a thing until the old Gamersfirst implemented the threat lock system for districts, like others have reiterated.

When that happened, people found out that dethreating was possible, and thus did so.

The problem with this, is that they didn't stop dethreating when the system was disabled.

You can lock a gold to a gold district, but if he were to start doing incredibly bad in the district, then he's going to drop down to silver/bronze.


You're asking for what has already been tried. There's not a big enough population of players for a simple bronze/silver/gold categorizations for the game to match up players to fight against.

You have to take in the future effects of this kind of stuff, especially if it's already been done ONCE.

That's why LO should consider various punishments to these people in the future, this is an issue that paralyses a player growth because people think the game's unplayable and boring due to constant losses.
I never understood these people. Instead of focusing on increasing their skill they just limit themselves to playing against newbies, quickly draining newbies' interest in the game.

The problem with this is, how will the system detect them as dethreating?

Player reports? Highly unreliable due to human nature being very volatile.

Some kind of algorithm? Maybe, and maybe after the engine update-priorities.

Hi.

 

They tried this before....back when the game had a larger population. The gold servers were dead, not because golds wanted to avoid those servers, but because there are simply not enough gold players on at a given time. 

 

Your suggestion has been tried. It didn't work. Time for a new suggestion or I dunno, play the opp you get and try and be better?

This has been suggested before, many times. You may care to look here, here and here. Also discussed here, and here and here... there's more to be found via a simple forum and/or Google.

 

Matchmaking has also been discussed by Matt Scott CEO; here.

In theory it would be nice, lots of ideals exist in theory. One idea I had was to lock them in their own district, and all their characters also get locked to it. If they have lower threat friends then their districts are open to everyone, but not every district is open to them. It's kinda like that now but dethreating sort of makes it unworkable. And you have fake golds who get gold, but can never hold onto it, would be a bit of a shame to lock them out like that.

 

The best idea, even though the playerbase is low....is to just have no threat districts, at all. So everyone gets to play together and their is a bigger range of skill in a room to match up with. Dethreating will be a thing still, but it's better than nothing. Just get rid of threat and put players against each other based on numbers instead maybe?

All I'm going to say is server populations.

If you think there is a limited number of players now, imagine when everyone is locked to their threat.

Only segregation should be for Ts and Greens who can duke it out in the tutorial district, they should also be warned from entering any other district to protect them even further also those threats should never be dethreatable to once players go Bronze and above. 

 

All the rest should be in the one pot on the one server with improved matchmaking to make individual matches more fair but drawn from a greater pool of players.
