As there is only 5% European members in
the CC is that because of Time Zone difference and members not being
able to play with each other?
Very odd and timely . Your inquiry . As it is the current discussion in our Cc forum as well .
There is no particular reason for any % of types of players here .
there is a problem with players not being able to play one another though .
That is caused by a lack of commitment to this format .
There was a time when multiplayer was prominent here in this CC . And was one of the main draws and brought a GR8 deal more excitement to an already strong and fun CC with a wide range of variety to offer its diverse members .
But at some point in time . As has happened throughout all of WGT . There has been a strange drop in popularity in multiplayer site wide .
There are various theories and reasons for this . Including the aforementioned lack of commitment .
But there are other factors in play as well .
The invite icon has been a big problem from the start of WGT .
Its placement on the WGT tab page . Requires one to be staring at the icon at all times so as not to miss the little tiny green icon when an invite has been made .
At this moment in response to your inquiry it is above my line of sight . I could be missing several invites as I respond to you .
And has been the cause of many disputes oif players claiming to be available but not responding to invites . This occurs hundreds of times per day .
A better location for the icon . On the top and bottom of the page would solve that missing the icon issue .
A pop up for invites . Would also be an alternative .
We have had as many as 40 % European members in our CC at times .
But our membership is like a revolving door . As we ask a certain amount of accountability here .
We do not require the use of any passes at any time . That is completely up to the player and his or her personal needs for equipment and the XP race in general .
We do not have any mandatory minimums for events or tournaments
Because of the fact that there is a good many players / members that are aware that there are many components that go into making a group successful .
We do ask for some accountability . in the way of presence and communication .
This seems to be a very hard task for the average WGTer . As we have had enough players to make 2 250 members CC's come through here . But they would be non playing and non communicating CC's .
Which we are not .
We are a 50 to 60 member CC . Which the size in itself makes multiplayer a harder format to play .
There is much more to VOTSCC than the multiplayer . Which is something i do encourage and always have . I still get some in CC multiplayer in . but mostly I play with my WGT friends . Which is as fun and satisfying as any .
But even the typical site wide efforts to play multiplayer have diminished over the last couple years . many times impossible to get that 4th player .
More tell tale signs of a struggling format .
So sad .
