Suggestion: Whitelisted competitive server

Recommended Posts

I know we are in the process of overhauling the server and maybe even splitting it into 2.

But hear this suggestion. It could bring more people to the SG community.

 

So we all know bhoppers are extremely competitive and bhop is more popular than ever.

And we could use this fact to make it into an Esport sort of and get more people to support to the community.

 

So this is the suggestion:

We make a new server that is whitelisted so only people that buy 3 moths supporter rank can join.

Also the only styles would be normal, scroll, d/w/a only and maybe sideways or half sideways

And it resets every 3 months and at the end of the "season" the top ranking

players wins money something like 100-200 $ split among the top 1-10 ranked people.

And if you have to buy 3 moth supporter you pay 14.97 $ we only need about 14 people

to become suporters in order to raise 200 $.

 

And ofcourse this could be hard to pull off and we would have to really put our selfs

out there so people know this is going on so maybe some sort advertisement

to get it going.

 

Personally i would probobly not have a chance to get top10 if we get some of

the best bhoppers to join. But i think doing this could become something big.

But more than anything i want to see bhop turn into an esport.

 

Criticise this idea all you want but i really believe in this.

An 09’er posting on forums for this? Gots to see whats up.

 

my only issue with this is that a lot of SG donations rarely (if not ever) go back into funding plugin developments and advertising, so developing a worthwhile private server that is paygated on top of marketing the prizepool would be extremely hard to pull off. The existence of private servers also always been a thing for bhop and whenever I check community tabs, it’s like 30 locked servers with 1 or 2 people in them so I’m not sure how much more effective adding a 100 dollar incentive would help but I genuinely like this idea.

 

If anything I’d rather see this happen and fail 5 times then succeed a hundredfold then to never see money never invested back into the community. Good shit bro.

I had never actually thought of this. This is a really intriguing idea that is something that has potential, but I don't think the time is right at this moment to put this out. I would rather wait until the release of a new server to see how it does on it's own. 

 

I don't think this would be the best as its own independent server, but may be better implemented as a separate event. This is something I will put in the back of my mind and look into at a future date. Thanks for the suggestion, I like the concept. Feel free (anyone) to put more feedback to this. I think this has a really good basis to it.

I disagree with the event part, I feel like if it really needs to be successful, it needs to be a permanent server with a cycle. I know some minecraft servers that ran a similar style although take it with a grain of salt since it’s a different game with billions more people and more customizability.

 

I’m pretty sure you’re aware how difficult marketing can be and having a small community market an event over an extremely scarce target audience just makes it borderline impossible.
