    TWL 22

    2017 is almost upon us, but more importantly TWL 22 is only a few weeks away (Date TBD).

    We are looking for some players to help run this years league.

    Posts to be filled are;
    1- Sunday host coordinator - This is is a staff role as the person will need to have access to bots and staff chats. The person will need to be active on Sundays and will need to be able to speak up and organise a bunch of online volunteers.
    2- Scheduler - This does not need to be a staffer - This person will be in charge of making sure that the TWL site is kept up to date, rosters and schedule.
    3- Community liaison - This does not need to be as staffer - This person will be in charge of keeping the community up to date, on the forums, in game zoners, newsletter information

    All 3 of these people will be TWL OP's and will be involved in the decision making before and during the season.
    The above are my suggested roles based on my experience last season and my vision for the next season, both are up for discussion once the 3 (or more) TWL Op's have been appointed
    All people are welcome to apply for the staff and non-staff roles, but please be aware that this is relativity long term commitment and will require a number of hours of work each week during the season.

    If you would like to apply for any of the positions or discuss further, please ?message me in game, all people will be considered (even you cres) the only requirement really is that you believe you can do it and that you are active enough to actually do it.

    Do you want to see Trenchwars have another season of TWL and you believe you can help make that happen and want to be a part of #MakeTWGreatAgain then ?message me !

    Much love,
    Mark

    MRW

    Why the fuck is a TWL season being hosted if all ladders have 4 participating squads? It's stupid. The league has died, stop!

    I guess it wouldn't do any harm to try and host a new league, might tempt old players to come on and reignite twd.

    I wouldn't discourage a willing moderator from hosting the league. However, this announcement begs the question: why wasn't TWL announced when TWDT was (relatively) active and players were still motivated to log in? The zone currently being dead is a product of a general lack of awareness that any other TWL season would take place. TWL is supposed to be announced quickly after its preceding league so that people know they are still logging in with an end goal of playing TWL. We lost a ton of players because of this.

    Before solidifying the next season, the next step should be to try to garner interest from players who have borderline quit and see how many can be rounded up to play. A successful TWL season requires significantly more players and squads than I'm seeing when I log in and when I check the TWD site. It may be a better idea to focus hard on marketing and gaining player interest while the 2v2 league pans out and then planning to host TWL after. TWL would never work with the same population that was approached to sign up for the 2v2 league. There are literally a total of 30-40 players signed up for that despite Mythril doing a great job.

    Good luck Markmrw, wish I could help more. Happy New Year everyone!

    pretty much sums it up. i feel like staff missed that perfect window of announcing the next twl when activity and interest was at its relative peak.

    This guy actually still think this game can revive... how many people tried to revive the community of this game? 100 ppl at least. It's done. We can't have anyone back. Hence, i am not coming back. i just come check these forums at 4 am cause i can't sleep. Every time i log on, there's no twd going on. i am not coming back for a twl season that's for sure. I did not even play last twdt becaus ei lost interest. There was no twd going on to practice or have fun.

    Really wish the best to my man Mark. You're a star despite the league situation. Happy new year TWers!

    Ciao.

    Even if you had TWL roster limit set at 10max players. You still probly couldnt get 5 teams to show a basing lineup worth playing. Might as well not even have basing twl. Theres only enough REAL basers left for 2 squads mybe. And they just gonna stack on same squad and bully. Fkn dumb and 0 fun.

    Even showing 5 for wb/jav will be tough to have an exciting match. There's not enough skill players these day. This game in a nut shell anymore. Is get on a stacked squad or have 0 chance at winning.

    Why you think everyone quits cause its fkn dumb just getting smashed twd match after twd match. I mean look whos left??? Only the players who dominant twd/twl for years. All the mediocre players quit because they got tired of getting destroyed. And alot of the vets stopped logging in because its boring, noone new to vs, and it gets old playing the same people everyday.

    I've been logging in religiously everyday for the last 10 years just for twd. And that has become so boring/dead over the last year. I find my self lucky to log in once a week anymore. Thats says alot. And its normaly a ?chat oh no1 is one then log right back off after waiting 10mins or so.

    Before you host twl make sure you have enough active players or you are just going to ruin twl and make the game truly die. If you have to disqualify teams for no shows its going to be the final nail in the coffin.

    someone needs to rack their brains around how you can get people to return to play TWL including vets....but I don't know how?

    My only idea would be big cash prizes for the top teams (finalists/semi-finalists split accordingly) plus money for each player included in all-star lineups? We have a fuck tonne of donation money still sat there that's going to just...disappear, at least it's an effort?

    Edit: Just looked on donations page - seen we've had $12,000 donated in total, and have spent nearly $10,000 of it, wtf did we spend that on? I can see atleast $5k of that is justified but 'TW Development' Money Spent of over $4k doesn't show what it was spent on?

    Still have a fair amount to use on cash prizes..

    Looks like a fair chunk of the donation funds has recently been spent for "Trench Wars Development", but there is no information about the money spent .. so.. who knows what happened to it. The site is conveniently broken and/or not kept up to date. I am guessing it is the monthly web and bot server expenses, though.

    You'd think that, but the monthly costs for web/server seems to have come out of the 'you choose for me' category.

    Every other section explains what's gone against it in a pop up window when you click on it, but the biggest portion taken out from the donation pot doesn't have this pop-up explaining where it's gone....interesting.

    lack of transparency maybe, but also a lack of understanding the need to motivate the players - right now I have no motivation to get active or attempt to compete for a title, as is the case for alot of people who have 'retired'/gone inactive....

    give us the motivation! (A good one, not some additional stat on the twl site).

    Still have a fair amount to use on cash prizes..

    As far as I know lots of it has been spend on the major hack they had a few years ago. Besides that, all the servers cost $100 a month. The last staff meeting when I was still still there was around 1 year of money left for servers. And about the cash prizes... I have been told multiple times not to use them for ECT, so I dont see why they would suddenly give it out TWL/TWDT.

    And giving prizes to the all-stars or winners would only make the real vets come back. If you see that of whole 'real' brainwave only me, oder and midoent still play. No one these guys would come back because of money prizes in TWL, cuz they know they will never win it.

    the lack of transparency of staff operations continues to plague this game. the donation money continues to be incompetently used and staff-player communication remains shitty. hard to expect a bright future with such a pathetic infrastructure. the community kept this game going and unfortunately, even it has had enough. personally, my interest in this game is at an all time low and I'm sure this is the case for most of the competitive players. it might be burn out or just the realization of the inevitable end. i doubt cash prizes will do anything for activity in twl based on its success in twel. player initiative to create/captain squads is at an all time low considering its off season and should be a major point to target and discuss.

    I've been such an ambassador to this game and to the people; I like to believe I brought the spectators 600+ in between 2002-2007 because people wanted to see me play. Anyway, the motivation is gone and it would be great for me to stomp zidane again or watch turban bulldoze those thunder geeks with 5% effort. Then we have 24 and MM God literally stealing the donation funds too but with that said, staff should donate the remaining funds to the community. It's great to see people like Mythril doing what he can and other people joining lesser squads to have competition but I think it's time to move on boys

    P.S. Don't worry zid, I am completely done with this game so you can stop shaking...

    Wtf, I didnt know this zone had this many crybabies. Staff is trying to create buzz by announcing next TWL.(using their valuable time for free) All I see is ppl crying about random things. you care enough to cry so we all know you gonna show to TWL anyway.

    The zone is always inactive during off season.

    If the TWL is gonna fail this year, so be it. But for fuk sake stop the negativity 3 months prior to start of the league.

    Staff should give twl a go if they want to, Id be happy if its a last charge to the death at least its in good hands with Markmrw guy generally wants to improve this game but should change rules to 4 player teams etc, but they should at least give it a go.

    Heres why I quit and I think I can speak for Ricko, Iron Survivor here also, it becomes a time invested problem, we all have hit 30 or hitting 30 years of age, we have realised that we have spent near 10,000 hours on a game, we stay interested because of that investment, however with reaching that age and seems the general age of everyone playing this game we dont want to invest anymore time into something that has absolutly no use in the real world. If this game was showing cosmetic improvements so it would at least look like its grabbing new players in it would be fine, but the game looks exactly like it did from 2001 when I started because staff DO NOT HAVE THE CODE for the game prittk has it and untill that changes nothing will massively change I am afraid and we might be flogging a dead horse. Unless we wait 30 years and hope Prittk picks this back up as a retirement project.
