The era of the hosting bot is over and the long period of no-CHF surely had a negative impact on our community.
Whether or not you like the new system, it is what it is. Everybody can host! Including you!
And it works. Very little desynchs (almost never) and little lags. Technically it works like a charm!
The problem we are facing are the following: 1 Lack of activity - yes our CHF games fill up slower than most other games
So if you haven't played in a while make sure you drop by! If you are new, you are of course always welcome
2 Always the same players are playing
Yes, and that is ok on paper. The issue is that all the players that join are either really good or at least decent. Any pub who joins litterally gets rekt. We even agree in lobby to play fun strats, because really getting rushed after 5 min is surely not motivating for a pub.
This problem is partly due to the fact that only the most dedicated and active CHF players are hosting games and they usually contact their friends. This means that there will always be at least 2 good players per game most of the time if not more. Those who host CHF currently are mostly good to decent players.
Compared to the time when we had the bot hosting, pub games with only pubs does not exist anymore. Every game now involve a team with at least one good player who wreck everyone. What happens is, those noobs do not join the next game. Back in the days they would "go next" and hopefully find a game with either only pubs or at least no pros. This is not possible anymore.
3 Not enough games are being hosted
This problem is related to the previous ones. Basically we are only a handful of players (3-4) who host regularly. If we do not host, it is very unlikely you will see a CHF game being hosted.
In others words, you will only see CHF when we (the hosters) are online. This is bad for multiple reasons - namely that CHF is not hosted enough, which has a negative impact on spreading the love of the game to others. For example there are times of the day where CHF simply is not hosted. This lack of presence make this game forgotten .
So... what am I basically saying?
1. Come and play with us! No matter your level!
2. Please try to host yourself a few games when nobody else is hosting, so that this game does not become one of those "rarely hosted games" that gradually become forgotten.
3. Spread the love and come with suggestions on how to handle the issues at hand!
