So those who frequented the forums would have seen a few of us folk from DADE region pleading pretty consistantly for something to be done to our old, locked region which had less than 20 active players on it. We couldn’t war, there was no competition in the region and people were just going through the motions and losing interest by the day.
The team heard us and opened our region again.
- over 20 factions fighting in wars (previously there were two, with mostly inactive members)
- over 6000 scores on the current leaderboard (previously we would be lucky to get 50)
- actual competition for territories (previously our faction held them ALL with one team in each, except the ones we didn’t have the manpower to occupy)
- a selection of new faction members (at least half our top faction is made up of people who have only been in the region a month, other factions are more newbie than oldie)
All in all its been wonderful, a real breath of life into our region. The newbies who are comitted to staying are already building competitive teams of 5*s.
The only downside is that global chat is full of twelvies talking trash to each other which makes communication between factions harder but we manage. Small price to pay for the renewed interest and activity in our region.
And as icing on the cake our faction won CRW this weekend, the activity from our new faction members allowed this to happen.
So td:dr its worked great and I look forward to the team opening up the other old dead regions for you other guys stuck in limbo!
So for all those who don’t think the team is doing anything, well they did help us. And I want to thank them on behalf of all DADE oldies for that
