Title: Problem/Resolution?
Post by: Unwanted_Citizen on July 01, 2019, 09:40:47 pm
I've come to realized that the number of player in pixelmon has decreased alot from previous years.
We need to come up with some sort of idea to get back players to join.
It's not impossible because in 1.7 pixelmon, SORB use to have 10/15 players online during weekends,
and atleast 5+ on weekdays.

This should be a focus of ours

It's not just pixelmon it's all of the servers, players that stick around are one of the rarest breeds these days

Compare SORB Pixelmon to any other pixelmon server, you'll see why sorb doesn't have many players. It's just that it needs tons and tons of work, and very good work.

Nearly 60% of sorb give a crap about pixel, and because of the server resets pixel loses players due to how much work and effort was lost. Just deal with it. If you wanna advertise the server go ahead. But will it get pixel back to its original roots?

I mean if Pixelmon gets back it's core players wont that lay a foundation?
Like atleast 5-10 active players that votes everyday,couldn't that work?
I mean i'm alot along with Corbuss and Gentle, and for the past week we had 2 new players join.
But if we get back our regular folks online, when someone join and they see players on, wont they stay?
Like you Leo, why don't you play pixelmon anymore, you was one of our core players, it use to me me, you and toxic on mostly.

I cant play because my computer is broken
Add to that some members that are in sorb probably found a server that is active and has giveaways. And like i said. Because sorb isnt that well known (dont include how many members it has). Pixel may or may not have its foundation built. Because of the necessary resets and updates to pixel (which i am not putting the blame on) the players lost their interest in this server. And trust me when i say that 1.7.10 had to be the most active pixel would ever be (Even though 1.7.2 had a lot of active players but not too often)

I get how you want pixel to be full again. Your only hope is either advertising the server or convincing old players rejoin the community and play again. But really. The whole mod is dead and not because of the new pokes added or anything. But because Nearly ALL servers DOES NOT have some sort of story or adventure related thing. Its like playing survival but with catching pokes. If anything the sorb pixel server itself needs to change. And to me. Its time this whole community needs to step up and get their servers filled with players.

I agree with Leo it isnt really the fact that SORB isn't well known (but kinda is) but the mod is kinda dead like if you compare Vilous to Pixelmon, Vilous has quite a few players because it drags in new players. We just need to find a way to get players there.Like Ian Malcom said ''Life finds a way''

You're right leo, tbh i messaged some of our friends who use to play on SORB, and they told me they didn't even know SORB's pixelmon is up again.
I'm going around trying to get back our players atm. Wish me luck ig

Back when I joined in 2014-2015, all of the servers (which we had around 5 then) had a decent 10-12 players on at a time. Vanilla was easy because you didn't have to install anything, and the PvP scene was godlike back then.

Pixel when we had a good amount of staff that were active (not throwing any of yall under the bus) and were actively interacting with players and such, I know for a fact that we had a ton of people there too.

Minecraft has taken a swan dive in popularity over the years, especially when it comes to PC Minecraft, what with Microsoft legit throwing new versions onto consoles all the time.
SORB has also seen a decrease in player count and so has the amount of quality gone into the servers.
I know creating, managing, and making a server look good is hard. Incredibly hard, I would even dare say, without the proper resources and staff members.

Honestly, it's hard to advertise people to come onto the server when no one is on in the first place.

When the community is dead, the server is too. When the staff members are dead, the server is too.

This server has seen its fair share of controversy, and that scared a lot of old players away, including staff members. I don't know how much my opinion means to this server, what with me being dead myself, but I think you should work on building up good staff, and from there just start inviting friends. After that happens, you can work on making the world look nicer, touch up on some of the plugins maybe, add some events when more people join. When the players see that the staff members are committed, they too will be committed.

That's just my two cents, rant about how I'm wrong I guess idc

This is the best comment so far, see we're getting somewhere...

In my opinion(not being rude), but the managers of the server needs to step-up, ik everyone has things to do, but there's alot needed to be done, this server is plain, and too basic for a pixelmon server.
We need to be different, to spice it up a bit.
We've recently gotten 5 active player back to the server, which may not seem big, but from before this is actually HUGE...

We just need the bigger heads to pay more attention(not being disrespectful),everyone needs to play a part in the making of this server, not just me not just the few of us commenting, we need a foundation, and that has to start with the higher heads/staff.

Most of the time the players that DID join would be afk for like an hour or two or just grinding levels and finding someone to battle. I have visited other servers and as much as i hate to say this but they were way more active then all of sorbs servers combined together. Active staff, Amazing events, active gymleaders and just a ton of things like quests. This is an opinion but if sorb were to be in one of the top pixel servers you could compare it to the most popular pixel server right now (wont say the address). I was introduced to sorb fron a youtube video and not from a website. And joined because i found it cracked and back then i was desperate to find a great cracked server. This was the only one i found and i just had a lot of fun. But when the first reset happened. Everyone just seemed like they lost the love for pixel. Not many gymleaders were active. The e4 rarely came on (until someone made  the decision on adding new e4 members which was stupid because i was THE most active one out of the 4) and there was not much activity in the chat (most of them were brazilians talking). I love pixel. I really do. But as this pains me to say. Sorbs pixel WILL Never be back to its original roots and activity. And i would love to be proven wrong if it indeed comes back to how it was.

And for that I work, I need people to play it, so I can know what to implement. And also working plugins for sponge.

You could make the borders the same they were at the start. Lots of players stoped playing because they lost theyr stuff.

Borders are not being expanded. That caused a yotzload of lag, it was only that big because I read the specifications wrong and thought it was diameter, not radius.

Well something needs to be done about that

Countless players lost there stuff
Ranches/Chest with valuables etc...

Also the one new thing the server has is the battletower
And it's MADD glitchy

To say the least. Pixel died the moment it had its first reset in 1.7.10. No matter what you do. It will remain dead since there is just nothing new then catching,breeding and building, coal is a hard worker and is trying his best to make this pixel server as great as possible. Which is great considering the players i knew now dont gibe a yotz about it. i have a couple of suggestions but honestly i feel like even if sorb did add them. Not many would join back. Ive said it like 4 times and that sorb pixel needs to get advertised if it wants to be more active and kinda popular i guess. This isnt something im suggesting or strongly suggesting. But some of yall need to visit other pixel servers and have some ideas (and not copied)

I gave players 2 weeks notice that the boarder was shrinking, I am not going to go 10k past the border to get a chestful of stuff that I gave that much notice about.

Also the battle tower is Gundulf's brainbaby, not even finna lie, no idea what it is, other than battling trainers.
