Is Warmerise Dead?

    It's not only few times that I've seen people writing in their post how warmerise is dead now. Most people, probably the old ones, who've been here from 2014 or even before that, consider the year 2014 to be the golden time for Warmerise, after which, in 2015 it started declining till 2016 when it almost died, right before the Admin officially closed it.

    Obviously there's a reason behind any fall. So I ask you guys, to take out a little time and share what you think the possible reason can be. My video on this topic is almost ready, but I want some player's words about this, to see what idea you people hold. [Some posts will also be featured]

    If somehow we can diagnose that particular cause, finding a solution for that will not be a great problem anymore. And it'll help the developer to focus his efforts on fixing that particular cause.

    Warmerise is certainly not dead. In fact, it is doing OK right now.

    However, it is dying. Slowly, but surely.
    The forum activity during recent months was very slow in comparison to the previous years of Warmerise forums. There are less servers made in-game and less online players playing.
    The numbers are decreasing. Many veteran players left completely.

    There seems to be some chance for Warmerise to survive.
    There is a major flaw about Warmerise though.
    The game is not advertised anywhere, and if you don't look up the game itself or search through some niche game websites, you might never see Warmerise at all.
    And that is a shame, because this game has potential, as seen in the past.

    The reason that players leave might also be pure boredom, maybe they found something else to play, perhaps they played Warmerise so much that it doesn't feel fun anymore.

    Adding to what Seth said.

    Warmerise was basically based on Unity Web Player. UWP could be considered the backbone of Warmerise but since UWP is not longer available and every browser has dropped support for it there is nothing a Web Game Developer can do considering that WebGl is unstable unless the game itself is highly optimized. Which is the main reason I'm not working on ArcaneOps or any of my games. 

    Every now and then I check Unity Beta release to see if any WebGl related problems were fixed but sadly there isn't much being done on Webgl. Why is that? Every hardware vendor have to push out updates so the hardware is able to make good use of OpenGl. What OpenGl? Yes. WebGl is based on OpenGl ES 2. 

    Here is a complete list of differences: https://www.khronos.org/webgl/wiki/WebGL_and_OpenGL_Differences

    You will notice what it can and can't do.

    That being said, many of the Warmerise players don't have that kind of hardware to play webgl/opengl content. And even if they do have it why not just go ahead and play OW, COD, Battlefield? The point of Warmerise was to provide good gameplay while using as little memory as possible (If I'm not wrong).

    I want to share my thoughts since I started playing on early 2014 and I've seen the game go up and down.

    One of the worst parts right now is not even the community itself but the way the game is doing. There are some days that there even were like 3-4 servers and only 20 people playing specially at night, before you could find like 10 servers maybe even Sky with 14 players. During a weekend, Zim who is the only one from Flare who is still playing sometimes, showed me the server list with only 2 servers and 18 players which is pretty sad.

    The second reason why many left are updates. I remember many of my friends from the good days of 2014 who left because of the updates. Games have to change, they sure do, but they have to do it slowly. I remember at one point on 2014 or early 2015 where there we 3 updates in a row: First the sprint and double jump was removed, then the sprint was added back or something and then the double jump was only possible by purchasing the upgrade. The changes on some weapons like the shotgun, someone on early 2015 complained about it not being too powerful but it went from being quite crappy to be a 1 shot 1 kill most of the time. On one of this latest updates I went to try the game and I just can't play it. Some "bugs" were like inside the meta of this game (The gravity switching for example, everyone from my clan almost like to have their gravity ready to switch and that was there for almost 2 years and suddenly it got removed because it was a "glitch", if something is in the game for so long and is part of the game meta it doesn't need to be removed, like for example in CS bhop wasn't a thing devs tried to make but people started to do it enjoyed it, no one got a disadvantage from it so it didn't need to be removed)

    The third and last reason is: Clans and competitive level. Clan wars on 2014 and early 2015 were epic, a fight between skilled people. But it isn't like that anymore 2016 was already the easiest year ever to get a good clan war win streak. This is not aimed to be disrespectful but the competitive level of this game is non-existent, even back on 2014 the good clans had like 5-6 good players for clan wars and the other 20 were average, but not like... very good. But now the level is even worse if some of the old good players had the will to spend 2 weeks getting good at the game he could easily be between the best players right now in just a week or 2.

    Don't take this as something negative, it's sad in a way because at one point many of us, the old players, enjoyed this game and had a lot of fun and still now we have WhatsApp groups and sometimes we talk about how much fun we had but this changed just like everything in life does.

    The solutions I can find for this are: advertise the game in gaming forums or any type of site (not only Max, if you care about the game like many of us did in the past bring the game to other people, make people know about this game), once you have more players (new players, that's what this player usually lacked of) you will have more clans which means more variety and when it comes to updates listen to what the community has to say: if they like the update, if they think that will be good or bad for the game, see how it affects the game meta, ...

    As an old player hope everything goes well for Max and that this community could get to be as good as it was or even get to be better than on 2014. #MakeWarmeriseGreatAgain #LongPosts2014Style

    Fate of Warmerise hangs on one and one person only... Max.. that is....
    It has been a while since I stopped playing Warmerise and probably this is my last week in Warmerise (funny I joined a few clans yesterday)

    I want to emphasise on what Zero said... that warmerise was meant to be a fun game that can run on less memory and processing power. Thats what is the reason for me to say farewell to warmerise. I have a good enough pc for playing games like COD and AC so why should I be stuck with Warmerise , (which I used to enjoy before). I am moving to Blacklight Retribution (which is also online multiplayer FPS but with better graphics and bigger community but the best part is that its not as social as Warmerise)
    People might say how come not being social the best part... the answer's simple, there is less hate...
    All the better for me to just focus on enjoyably playing the game with anonymous comrades and foes. Just focussing on the game without getting much indulged into the community hassle.

    I could have just edited my post ... but on second thought , I might as well add seperately.

    Just to support my thought and also to better convey what I meant... I have some stat reports

    So I went to my home page just after I posted my reply and of the first ten post that show up:
    1x " I am pro , he is noob " kinda post.
    1x post to Max by the never satisfied crowd
    1x Bragging pic of a victor with his opponent who has fled
    3x Posts in languages I dont know.
    1x Good post from a good guy sharing his forum topic about death of Warmerise.

    See the ratio: Its 1:3. for Good:Bad.

    Also that because of the last post else it would have been 0:3

    I kinda agree with you RaMa on the social part, I play CS:GO and since you don't know anyone else and you won't ever get to see them again there is no hate between you and others. Maybe one game you get a salty kid on your team but maybe next time you get good teammates. But here we all know each other and we all end up playing on the same servers which lead to hate between players and clans hating on other clans, ...

    That's also the biggest reason for Warmerise to be dying and lose the old players and this one doesn't have a solution, people left the game to play bigger games like LoL, CS:GO, Overwatch, ... because there isn't much you can accomplish here apart from the top 100 that is quite meaningless. In other games there are pro tournaments, there are ladders or ranking systems based on ELO which is more likely to represent your skill and many more options.

    I guess the game is already dead,well sometimes i want to play i found like 1-3 servers ?!? I guess because nerfed everything TBH,well now the game sucks and about some things,people like @EpicTroll2 just keep posting some sh|ts that he won a clan war vs Legion and telling that he is a pro and others noobs,well another reason the other languages made the game more cancerous.

    IMO the best Warmerise was on 2014 and a little bit on 2015...

    Now the game sucks.

    Excess of everything is bad; warmerise is too social. 11 thousand members and only 20-30 people are found actually playing in servers. Other 10,970 players are building their social life on Warmerise, most of them are those who cannot get their game running or have anything against the gameplay.

    Warmerise will never be dead, unless ALL of it's members leave. That includes unregistered players. As long as there is even only one, Warmerise isn't dead. It's truely a great game.
