WARHURYEAHThe game is at the point now where we shouldn't give a shit on trying to attract new players, we've done that shit for years and it's done fuck all.I agree with everything but this. I think it is vastly underestimated how much good that effort has done. You know how vets love to get all misty-eyed over old players that don't game anymore? Well, the scene would have died without fresh faces to replace them. Sure, the scene may not have gotten numerically bigger, but without all the effort to attract new players this scene would not be anywhere near as healthy as it is now. I bet it'd be actually dead.
yes but also no. attracting new players with newbie pugs etc was good, but i dont think adding more stupid guns to the whitelist has converted any pubbers and i think that was the point war was making. people who look to get into comp are probably already of a competitive mindset and would try it no matter what
if u look at reddit and stuff people still to this day think we ban 100 weapons when its actually closer to 15. those people are wilfully ignorant they just dont care
