Donark has a spectacular aura about
Lightbulb Idea to increase playercount

Alright I'm sure a lot of people will disagree but at this point I think this might be thew only thing that will work.

For a week-month we should make Zone free to the people who have lifetime classic. You don't need to bring it down to the player world tab but announce it on the global news. I'm not saying keep it permanitly like that, but if we get some people with lifetime gold to start playing for that week and get hooked on it, when it gets back into gold they would want to stay and renew a subscription.

We won't have to change the gelat weapons if thats what stefan believes is making money. (It probably is the only thing that makes money) If there is a player on zone it's 75 percent of the time a trial.

It's just an idea. Give me your thoughts.

I think the best would be that Zone/GK are free to play for lifetime Classic users on weekends.

Sounds good to me, It would bring more people to Zone/GK if peolpe who have Lifetime classic can play them in weekends. Maybe they start liking the server and maybe they buy gold to play every day or keep playing in weekends only..

Not many people still have lifetime classic. The amount that do (that also would want to play Zone) wouldn't do anything big to the playercount.

Many people have life time classic still. And i'm sure we would get some people to play again.

That's why you tell them ahead of times it's only for 2 weeks.

It's hooked people before.

And we've said we wanted updates for a while. I havn't really seen any for the past 5-6 months.

Not enough though. Zone rarely hits a playercount higher then 20. We need to change that before thinking about doing your idea.

It's nothing like it was before.

I've noticed. I'd like your idea more if there was some reason for these players to actually stay on Zone.

Updates? Gambet is working on it His getting things rolling, its good to see zone moving forward again, even after a massive lose in playercount.

To get the playercount up non-gold users need more incentive to bother going to zone.

You could also make Zone how it was a year ago, People seem to have liked that since the playercount was higher. Maybe if you do that again, more people will play Zone.
Some things make people hate zone, like those hotkeys.. It is way to easy to lame now, you are fighting someone with your sabre, he comes close to you.. You press a key and you get your blue rifle out and lame him to death, Kinda sucks?

Jasper told me about an idea and it sounded good to me.

Close Zone for 1 month, in that time get some scripters devs etc.
Work nonstop in reneweing Zone get lots of updates.
Advertise for the new zone release, at that date the playere count will deffinatly be high, and im sure if the updates are good enough some players will like it and stay on Zone!

Zone doesn't have to be closed to make them work hard.. They have a Zone Debug where they can work hard, They just have to test and make everything there.. And maybe close zone for one day and make a huge update on Zone.
