Warlight is declining and slowly dying, the community is less important than it used to be, less and less games are created, less people playing, less fun...

This game has come to an end... don't you think?


RIP WARLIGHT

@ Leinad

Summer? ahah, no sun from where I live, and this does not explain at all the fact that Warlight is currently facing a serious crisis.
I'm not the first one to point out that Warlight is clearly losing players (just open your eyes and see how much ancient and great players already officialy retired, and just count how much "retirement posts" have been posted recently)

well in summer people will go to another sunny country where they will not care for an online game the fact that it is the summer is correct.

Warlight for a long time has not known any major improvements, this is the truth.
More people are leaving now, and that's easy to see and realize Warlight's decline: less games are created than before, Fizzer does not allow us to see real figures that would show us how much warlight activity decreased, but you can have an idea of Warlight's current situation by analysing how many games are created (than before), the time a game is filling in or never starting because no players are found, the number of renowned and talented players retiring, etc, etc.

Here are 3 main reasons (this my opinion, free to debate) about why Warlight will fail and soon or later disappear:
- No major improvements since a long time.
- Admin no giving a shit of people's grievances/concerns.
- Warlight obviously slowly becoming a total not free/commercial game.

Agreed.
Warlight is a fun game, for sure, but it does start to get boring when you attack a territory X times with X amounts of armies.
If Warlight is to survive, it must do some serious thinking on how to make games more pleasing for its players, as the game's true weakness is the lack of enthusiasm during games (from boots, votes, surrenders, loses, variety of maps being played (there are a ton of maps, not all are played), terrible partners, unfair teams, and the general state of the player before they log on).

less and less games are created

hm... I guess this means you are seeing less and less games and come to following conclusion:

"You seeing less and less games" --> "Less and less games are created".

Is there also another conclusion to your observance?

Fizzer clearly doesn't care enough about Warlight or its community to fix the issues it has. He isn't willing to put in the effort needed to keep it alive.
At this rate, I agree that Warlight will eventually die, and only a hundred or two loyal players will keep it going.

I wonder if Fizzer is reading any of this.
If not, he should perhaps he should listen to the suggestions of the community.

I can test the hypothesis that there are fewer games being created each day. Since CSL is run manually, I can start making the games at the same time each day and seeing what ID's they end up with- which will tell me how many games were created in each 24h period.

That said, don't tell me that people are getting tired of the game when about half the Warlight community doesn't even play it. There's plenty of people who spend their time on forums and in poorly-made diplos who can't play a 1v1 on any template, not even ME.

I think the community deteriated a lot not too long ago but has gotten better. I would guess the game itself has been strong consistently though

@Ben: Yes, I was thinking about his designation of a pretty standard Imperium Romanum template (not Guiroma as I hadn't learned about Guiroma yet, but still a template I use in CSL and swiped from a good few tournaments; statistically, it's doing almost as well as Guiroma as a CSL template) as a "daemonic template."

But that's not all of it though. There are people whose sole goal in this game is to get manager rights in a Clan, or people who just try to "win" unbalanced diplos.

I don't get why people would want to do that. Like, where's the fun in that? What game are they even playing?

Pretty sure Fizzer cares a LOT about the Warlight. It's just a pretty massive task. All games eventually die, just like all bleeding eventually stops and taxes are eventually due. It's nothing new. Warlight is still hanging in there. Toward the end of summer online games pick up again, right now is their downtime (and a brief period in the fall). Play until you're done with it, then stop playing. Don't worry about the other factors. Personally, I'm here for the team games, 2v2 and 3v3 primarily, usually RoR. There are almost always 3-4 games from which to choose. It's been that way ever since I came over here from Kongregate where I used to play it. The game is alive. Kongregate's demo version has died, but it's going strong enough here to sate my occasional interest.

Right. Fizzer has been developing things for WL pretty well. He added CLOTs, now sockets, and Coin Games and a lot of other things. As long as the metacommunity is still around to rant about clan leadership, we don't need to worry about losing the actual Warlight community.

Well at the moment, Warlight is inactive. No games made by users at all.. As far as I know Warlight does get boring for players as they go on as they find it repetitive... I think only diplomacy games keep people in Warlight..
