CHRISTMAS ROUND IDEAS:
Hey folks, taking into account that:
A: This round is on a smaller, quicker, higher action map.
B: That the round after this in December would be the Christmas Round.
Then I’m wondering what ideas or thoughts people would have about the Christmas round, for example:
What size of map you would like?
If a player could make a special map for Christmas?
What features you would like enabled or disabled?
I am assuming there is still a round in December.
Guess my main reason for saying this is because I think Christmas would be a really good time to invite people back to the game?
That generally in December the weather is cold and wet so lots of people stay indoors and some people at least end up with 2 or 3 weeks off work over Christmas, so perhaps its a good time to invite some old players back.
Think over the years most of us have got 3 or 4 people on Facebook that use to play IC years ago, so perhaps inviting them back for a special December round would be a good idea. In fact I know xMoDx has already invited several people back, so maybe a “Collective Effort” to invite people back for some kind of special Christmas round would be a good idea?
I’m not exactly sure what I mean when I say… Special Christmas Round.
Don’t know maybe more starting resources / custom map / lots of features people like enabled / maybe start each empire with some e-ships or something.
I only mention this now because if would perhaps give someone time to build a custom map or submit some ideas or whatever.
Well I know 3 or 4 old players and will happily invite them back for a round, however guess it sounds better saying…
“You want to come a join the special Christmas round on IC?”
I know a few people can make custom maps, Rawrr made a great map last round and I know xMoDx is looking into making a few as well. I’d suggest building some maps for the special occasions.
Halloween / Christmas / New Year / Fathers Day / ECT.
This way when inviting player back we can say:
Come and take part in the special Halloween round?
Come and take part in the special Christmas round?
Come and take part in the Fathers Day round?
With maps and features in place.
Halloween - Maybe a skull in the middle of the map.
Christmas - Maybe a Christmas tree in the middle of the map.
Fathers Day - Maybe a heart in the middle of the map.
Maybe I’m talking bullshit but if we had enough nice custom maps to fill up 4 or 5 years worth of special occasions then it just gives us even more reason to invite player back.
You want to play IC mate? No not really.
You want to play IC mate, during the extra special Christmas round with a custom map and advanced features and starting resources? Hhmmm yeah maybe I will join up.
