*implement a yearly league structure, so that as soon as one league ends, next one will start, if possible host several leagues at the same time
*start having league games during weekdays, so zone would have more active days than just sunday
*continue with scheduled pickups, implement more times, hire more refs to host it
*move baseduel back to its original position, so we can have pickups at euro times as well, current baseduel just does not make people active and zone wakes up 3-4 hours later then it used to
*start a donation fund to find programmers to code the automated league bots, eg average population is old enough for people to have money and they will support it
*implement automated baseduel just like ?go elim, this should be prized on reset bases, random freqs, once a player enters arena, a zone message will be called, for example: baseduel game starting in ?go bd, maximum 10 players allowed, bot will randomly select even teams from participants
IMPROVE THE PUB
*completely change the concept of pub map, make it based only on flagging, small map, 2 bases (put goals into those bases as well), 2 pub-freqs max 12 per freq, reduced fraying area, reduce the number of total flags.
Pub arena should be like a tutorial arena, with arrows showing way from safe to bases and descriptions of what new players must do etc. Current pub is a huge mess for new player who enters.
*Generate staff-enforced squad for newbies lead by volunteers who could teach basics for newbies who are interested (i can volunteer for this, i know alot others would as well), promote that squad heavily in pub.
*Implement at least 2 pubs, main pub with described settings, second pub with priv freqs allowed. Host constant flagging games in the second pub (prized if necessary), have EGAL format used for the flagging in pub to get squads involved in pubflagging again.
*start announcing reset winners for both squads and players in pub, generate a competitive movement for players.
*start moving afk players to lounge again, they are just disturbing and making enourmous afk-freqs of 40 players, which is discouraging
*start a donating fund together with TW advertising SS as a whole, if our pub is changed according to description we can hold alot more players with us than we have before.
Please feel free to ask what is my reasoning behind those points, but i hope its clear for all. We can make pub attractive for vets and newbs, make it easy enough for newbies to understand and to spend time there and make it interesting enough for vets to spend their time there. You cannot expect vets to start playing in pub as its the most important thing in eg, it will never happen, but you can make it more pleasant for them, so they spend more time there, which will eventualyl also encourge newbies to get more involved int he zone.
