@azraeel said in What would be an efficient use of FAF's funds to improve FAF?:
Game has fundamentals issues
and its hard to have retention unless you are dedicated to improving or you play purely for fun and eventually people who play purely for fun go away.
goes for all games, that is normal. widely appreciated game = good retention, less appreciated game = less retention. FAF is an RTS game which are known to be unpopular
I think a lot of people also play pvp a few times then just quit because toxicity and just generally ass maps/players on global.
toxicity exists in all games, and players who do not like global are generally recommended to try tmm
don't think most play ladder Because it's not pushed enough to the front. If anything we need to start making matchmaker more of a focus and push global into a arcade type style like SC2 does.
When you click the "Play" tab in the faf client it opens up the Matchmaking tab. They are aware it exists. People don't play ladder because they don't like ladder, and people don't play TMM because they want to play their own maps
So paying many to promote FAF is a huge waste of money when nobody is dedicated to actually dealing with core issues that just make players not want to come back.
u mention core issues again without elaborating what these are?
Everything money wise for tournaments, promotion etc could be a lot more if we had a more dedicated fan base instead of people who just play with 0 interaction. I think that stems from a toxic mentality and an inability to actually change major components of the game and not only the game but how even the client is structured and etc.
lotta big words that hold no meaning. What exactly will a more dedicated fan base do to increase tournament/promotion funding? I don't know of any gaming communities that fundraise money for the developers to do stuff. Very unrealistic to expect this
"instead of people who just play with 0 interaction. I think that stems from a toxic mentality" no it just stems from the fact that people are here to play FAF not to donate money to promote FAF
and again you mention issues with the game and client without giving any examples
