  7. Hey folks! Minecraft turns 10 today! So, obviously one must ask - what are we doing to celebrate Minecraft's 10th birthday? Two things: 1. Everything on https://donate.chaoticunited.net is 50% off for the next week! If you've been eyeing one of those shiny rank upgrades, now's a fine chance to grab it for cheap! 2. The 10 year celebration map that Mojang put up is up on a server for you to explore! Fire up 1.14.1 and connect to 10years.chaoticunited.net to check it out! There is one other little thing that we'll be doing as part of this, but it won't come into effect until a fair bit later once we update to 1.14 - so stay tuned for that! If you haven't already, go ahead and check out the page on Minecraft.net in regards to its 10th anniversary. Nothing much else this time around - let's all celebrate 10 years of Minecraft!
  8. Just because a playerbase is declining (which also no, it actually isn't if you actually look at the number of people coming into the game) doesn't mean it's time to abandon ship. The other thing about having say clans and other such things for other games is that we don't (to my knowledge) have people willing to operate and maintain such a thing. I've got too much on my plate to begin with - what with trying to find a job (and eventually having one), running CU, and also programming and working on stuff for Elaztek. I'm not opposed to the idea of expansion - but someone else would need to lead such projects as I won't be able to do it the right way - my passion lies with MC and such, my game library is tiny and mostly consists of Halo, Minecraft, and a few other random miscellaneous games (that are usually older games). I don't have the personal interest to pursue clans on say Apex or Fortnite or whatever, so if I were the one to lead the charge it'd be a disaster. Once again though on the topic of MC - if you look at the state of the game right now, people are actually coming back. People who quit years ago are showing back up, partially due to a combination of new updates, nostalgia, and memes. And as I said before - just because something is declining a bit doesn't mean shit if the game is still wildly popular. It isn't an easy process to actually bring in members effectively without having funding behind it - which is something I'll be doing once I get this job. A lot of people like to say that the game is dead because in their limited circle, it is. Their friends have moved on, the people they know moved on, and they themselves moved on. When that's mostly all you see is people you know leaving the game to go play others, then it's no surprise that people get the feeling that the game is declining, dying, or dead. But at the end of the day, what happens in one or a thousand friend circles doesn't apply to the world. Maybe the game is declining - not much of a shocker, the game has been out for 10 years (actually today is the 10 year anniversary). But even so - it's still more than viable to build a community on, and that's why I intend to stick with MC. I know a lot of old folk would rather see me shift gears to something else and drop MC finally, I've yet to hear an actual compelling argument as to why I should put Minecraft to the side or even shut it down entirely in favor of other, newer games that I don't give a single shit about. The only argument I ever hear is that the game is dead or dying - which is simply not true. Look up the numbers yourself if you don't believe me. Go to the forums for various other servers. Check out PMC or MinecraftForum. There's a massive amount of Minecraft focused communities that are thriving today. The biggest issue CU has is that people have been slowly trickling away for the past 4 years and we've been clueless as to how to actually create a proper influx of people. Virtually every single person that's active is either from old CU or ND, or is a friend of someone from old CU or ND. Chaotic United's lack of success isn't because of the game, it's because of my ineptitude when it comes to advertising and self-promotion. I don't mean to come off as angry or dismissive - I do see value in expansion, and it's something I may talk to the team about and see if anyone is interested in building clans for those other games. I just get tired of hearing the same false argument being made time and time again and that I should just quit and focus on something else (yes I know you're not suggesting quitting it). Lastly in regards to TF2 or CS:GO servers - we've had those in the past and they performed absolutely horrible. That being said, a couple staff are interested in managing other gameservers, and once we update to 1.14 there should in theory be a lot more headroom to work with to actually run a couple more servers. So that might be something we explore here soon, along with me looking to invest financially into advertising and marketing for MC.
  9. Most newer games don't have player-hosted servers, although they have ways to build a community. I'm aware that WoW and Runescape arent particularly new games, in fact they are just a few years younger than me. Both these games have ways to build a community, whether it's clans or friend chats, u can do it. I've played a lot of CS:GO for example with people I met on a runescape clan. With that being said, managing a clan on both of those games can be fun and can help CU grow even if its a smal amount. Other games such as CS:GO do have ways to build servers and connect people. I don't know if you want to dedicate time to opening csgo servers or other shooters such as tf2 but it can be rewarding for the community. Also I do kind of agree with minecraft being "dead". Is it really dead? No. But does it have a declining player base? Yes. With new games coming out such as Fortnite or Apex, people are starting to shift to those games. My young cousins (11yo) used to play minecraft all the time and now just play fornite with their friends. I'm aware this doesn't mean everyone shifted over to these new games and that minecraft isnt just for kids but it's just goes to show that even they are leaving minecraft for other games. A small investment of time into these new games shouldnt hurt this community at all.
  10. Well Josh's suggestion is to have a focus on more popular games which on average tends to be newer games.
  11. True but who said it had to be newer? Minecraft isn't new.
  12. There are 2 primary issues: 1. Most newer/popular games don't have player-hosted servers or any mechanisms to do so. 2. Those that do likely only do through modding and it can be legal hell. Running a WoW or RuneScape server is illegal as shit and Blizzard has been known to file lawsuits and pursue legal action as a result. I don't think anyone here is looking to get in legal trouble for running a community. I sure as shit don't.
  13. I agree with Jamplifier. if we focus on other games we might have a chance. I'm not saying that we should just get a bunch of game servers, but if we do some research and find a game lots of people are playing and will continue to play (like Minecraft), we might be able to make this community into a big huge community. Now I know that there is legal stuff we have to do but in the long run, I think it will work. That is true, Minecraft is becoming that, but if we expand our servers we will have more players from that game join and like Jampifier said they might want to try out Minecraft and like the game.
  14. How is being open and asking for clarification hopeless? I'm sorry that I don't subscribe to the unpopular opinion that Minecraft is just a dead game beyond any recovery, but if you look at it objectively, it isn't dead. Far from it. I'm not gonna throw away MC purely because some of CU's veteran players have simply grown up and moved on from it. I may be misinterpreting his original post, but I get the feeling he isn't suggesting gameservers - rather to somehow focus on creating a community without having self-hosted servers. However, in regards to popular games - there are two ways to look at it. On one hand, you can certainly build a following based on whatever's popular at the time. But when that thing stops being relevant, how many of those guys are gonna stick around? Allow me to echo your words in the original post and refer back to old CU - how many people were still around from WoW/RS in 2013? Not a whole ton, MC had overtaken it and everyone who came for those games eventually just left. The reason I'm hesitant to just follow the trends is because it's a bad long-term move. It's good at building a community for the lifetime of that game, but ultimately people aren't gonna stick around once the next big thing comes up most likely. That being said, clearly we're doing something wrong as we're sat here with a very small community. But at the same time, I'd like to think we're doing something right as well - for that small community is incredibly tight-knit. Despite many of the people not playing MC a ton, Discord is still alive and well and everyone still talks. I've figured that if nothing else happens, once I start getting a game out for Elaztek I'll do something to try and involve CU a fair bit in that if all else fails. I am still open to hearing the clarification - what are you suggesting? Servers? No servers? If no servers, are you suggesting something specific? I'm not known for being able to pick up on cues and I can't do much with a suggestion that I don't entirely understand.
  15. A good fault to me as well, but I do feel that this will be a new turning point. I have a feeling.
  16. Here's a problem with it, we can't just look for popular games. There has to be a legal way to host and possibly make revenue. Most games have severe restrictions against that, for example: World of Warcraft or RuneScape. Now granted if an opportunity presents itself, I'm not opposed to checking into it. We aren't uneducated when it comes to that fact, I get that there are tons of popular systems and games, the point of this is we want to keep everything as legal as possible. We aren't kids anymore meaning there's real consequences if we don't follow the strict guidelines.

    fucking chrome

    I guess differ of opinions
  18. Game ideas are Appreciated. Its All about funds to get projects off the ground even if something i thought of what game and platform to run it off of. And need a Development team to keep the server up and running healthy.
  19. i have the opposite experience - most things run better on chrome for me most things work good in firefox too but some things run like absolute ass

I have it but i like chrome better With the new look of chrome if I ever switch browsers i'll probably switch to Pale Moon - it's based on firefox but has a delightful amount of UI customization and I can make it look a lot like chrome thanks to the power of themes :^) but for now im sticking to good ol' chrome 54.0
