The video looks like crap, but the game itself is pretty fun. Trying to do something to get some community back into the game so it doesn't sunset once again. Aside from 70+ players signing up for Season 8 of Free Infantry USL, we're also trying to build some presence around our leagues and our sports zones. I'm more of a fan of the sports zones now than I ever was... I think that's probably one of the most unique things about Infantry's game engine when compared to other games.

Any tips or thoughts you guys have are most welcomed. Also, I've posted another thread (below) before I saw Infinite's terrible video. :)

I think getting younger groups of kids interested is probably the best thing you could do. They have more leisure time and a better ability to wrangle their close friends in to trying the game(s). I'd play Subspace or Infantry when I was younger nearly every single day for hours. I told my friends about it. I actively tried to get them to play. I was one of the unlucky ones that did not succeed, but others certainly did.

Getting the remnants of players-gone-by is probably more of a last-ditch type of effort and not the target market.

Realm, getting kids to play Infantry would be like your dads getting you to play Pong with them when you were a kid. Infantry "nigger golf" zone is certainly not what would get me to play again though, that's for sure.

Your analogy has the opposite affect on my memory. I was anxious to play pong against the grown-ups.

Bro, life itself is pointless. You can amass all of the money in the world and you still end up dying alone in the end. May as well catch some Rattatas along the way.

Some people get purpose out of collection, other's out of competition, other's out of other things. Just different forms of accomplishment.

You and I Fore get like 0 purpose out of collection, but if you think about the world, there is a huge group of people that really value it.

My purpose lies somewhere between sex and collection. Combining the two can be hazardous though.

I hope you find it funny as in legit funny. Because Clash Royale is a solid game and Pokemon Go is a piece of trash with a novel social experience tagged on.

I dunno I kind of like Pokemon because my son likes playing the game and at least it's a game which has a novel approach. I suppose my humor is at the fact that, if we go back in the time machine to what 2010 when the future of gaming was going to be on phones and fast forward to nowadays I mean the games are absolute shite on phones. What you've got Fruit Ninja, Angry Birds, and Temple Run as the greatest phone games? I mean even the ports of Final Fantasy play like garbage on a phone, I guess I just have a prejudice against any mobile game because the gameplay is probably going to be terrible either that or it's a paywall you have to get through to even enjoy it. At least with Pokemon Go it's a game where you can actually say well I can't find anything like this on consoles or the PC where as with Clash Royale I can name you 10 games that are the same genre just a better game than Clash Royale on Xbox or PC.

I think clash royale is novel as well. I have never seen a game that is so simple to get into, but is highly tactical, strategic and easy to play. I'd be interested to hear what games you think have that some package of qualities. Because honestly, I don't know any.

Clash Royale is nothing but a money sink. The game itself might be interesting, but you're not getting anywhere without spending hundreds of dollars.

Speed chess I agree is similar, and I have played it. Not sure people are really playing 3 minute games and it doesn't have nearly the polish that Clash Royale does.

I didn't know Go and Mahjong can be played in 3 minutes.

And detri, I top most tournaments and am in the highest arena - never spent a dime.

I'm sorry to disappoint, but your comment didn't mention a 3-minute time limit. I was only responding to the most immediate response.

I would say that the "card" game of "Resistance" could be described with all of the adjectives that you used. I'd imagine you're looking for a comparable video game with potential for multiplayer capability in some manner though. I could probably think of something, but am not as well-versed as others in that arena.

Ah, my bad. By easy to play I was referring to how Clash Royale is on your phone (ie. usually with you), you can find a good matched opponents in 2-5 seconds, and each game takes 3 minutes. Most other games take significantly more effort to organize and/or play. And as I get older I find I have less time to sit down for an hour or more and more short breaks here and there.
