Honestly i don’t expect miracles. It’s rather impossible “Making Stick Arena Active Again”, however i have no doubt will bring better times. At least i believe it. Over 50 active players in a week isn’t something what we can’t achieve. What we can do to change current situation?
Some things you can’t hide many people stop playing Stick Arena, because of reset stats. For me it was good idea, but taking into account numbers of players you can’t tell it’s succes. As each of us knows there are 3 types of SA players : a) “tournament players” b) “leaderboard players” c) “maps creators” I think prizes should be smillar for everyone. It would be nice to make tournaments and map making events more official. I don’t know it’s possible, but might be it’s worth to try introduce list like" seasonal leaderdoard" to 2 other types players. It can be good idea if competitve seasons consist of 3 parts. Im all for playdays 3 times in 1 year.
I think most players could be agree with at least 1 tournament and map making event in each season.
I have to admit prizes for cometitive season 4 are great for top 5 players, and reduce leaderbord to top 50 is nice idea, because in this way it’s hard to enter on the list more than 1 acccount. Well, personally i think it isn’t worth to save for lab pass. I was talking with lots SA players, and most of them really was count on fews days lab pass. Cred is good thing like a prize, but it’s lost worthy without lab pass. Unfortunately many people lost the joy of getting kills/ ranks. I don’t blame them, because when ranks are reset every month it’s not point for most players. If just leaderboard was resetting wihtout ranks it would be something else and im pretty sure many people can be come back to us. It could be exclusive goal like old SA days. Urinal maps have a long SA tradition, and i think it should be still allowed. Alternatively can be considered 4 ties like smallest allowed map. Still lots people like this map, and if it was outlaw again, don’t know it could be good for SA.
