Here is something everyone can contribute to without having to know how to change code around. Post reviews of warzone on "off topic" sections of forums tell there friends make posters/wall papers,YouTube videos,legos, avatars etc this can be just for fun also. So post all of your creative ways to help make warzone 2100 more popular.

here is what im doing so far.....

You gotta be careful when doing this.

The problem with the more popular games out there is they tend to have the... less desirable playerbase attached to them.

Steam especially (what being the home to both CStrike and TF2), and anything by Blizzard, is just perpetually flooded with egomaniacal crapmallets and professional trolls.

Given that this is not a for-profit endeavor, it behooves this community to be somewhat selective as to who it "recruits" into the "community", as it were.

no matter what your going to get well undesiberable people but this is just a side effect as there will be more mature people and developers, modders, mappers, people 24-7 to play online

so anysuggestion on the offical name of a steam group : warzone 2100 Resurrection, warzone 2100, warzone gpl

Usually we go by the name warzone2100 (for the package name, "user" name, etc) or "Warzone 2100: Resurrection" (for the group developing the game).

Again, I have to disagree with this.

It is the difference between targetted marketing, and mass marketing. Mass-marketing, the kind you are proposing, would be unilateral in therms of its "grabbing". While I don't think these forums will ever get as bad as, say, the WoW General forums... lets just say that I find the (normally) civil discussions found here to be a relief from the norm of internet forum going.

If you want to advertise, use targetting marketing. Rather than just telling everyone to "come here", at least get some minor cursory knowledge of the person first. For example, if you play an 4-player free for all map in starcraft, and (as a very light example, of course), after it ends, and you win, the other 3 players respond with:

P1) f$%@ you marine-producing f!@#$%
P2) Goddamn lag, you wouldn't have won if we were on an even field
P3) Good game. Till next time.


Just telling P3 about this cool RTS game called Warzone is much better than letting all 3 of them know about it.




Obviously, nothing is bulletproof, and smacktards will show up on any forum given enough time; but (and I may be the only one on the planet who believes this, I guess) when looking for people to contribute to something (which, for right now, these boards are more about game design and less about just shootin' the breeze like a chatroom), quality is a much more important trait than quantity.

hmm well i say we will just have to have the ban hammer ready for instant removal, but if we can get players to constantly play online, well i dont know about what we should do about that.


good luck lone commander

Well I had a few others in mind.. i thought of gamefaqs.com , but i was recently banned from that due to... innappropriate posting... :D

And ign.com you need to pay to be on there, so it's kind of hard for me to do it..

myspace would do the trick, but we'd need to have our own site and such, and spread the word to gamers who'll actually play...

Either way, I'll try and spread the word, this site has been the best thing i found since i played the game when i was 6 =D...
