…it was almost as if the clouds had parted, for there's always clouds in this kind of imagery, and the Developers delivered their message from on high. Defender; creator, messenger of the Developers, speaketh! Get your shit together people.
This is how it works.
I do bestow a divine radiance as my presence always brings sadness, cheer, and confusion in my wake.
I part the clouds of dissolution to bring my witty, yet somewhat blunt statements from the heavens, to the ears of my people. I am appreciative of the efforts I've seen to keep MWLL alive, and my statement is more in jest with a dash of bitter disappointment laced within. As I am one of the last remaining of the holy chosen ones whom hath delivered MWLL unto thee, the message I deliver is to get your shit together.
You're the only ones who can keep MWLL active.
Keep the tournaments going and just manage your expectations. The tourneys will keep MWLL active with semi-regular play, and it gives a reason for people to keep coming back every week/month while still bringing in new players. Set schedules, fill the blanks, let people fill in on a whim and if you can't muster enough to do Clan v Clan, then just do public tournaments in a similar format. Require TS and a server password and go for it. Keep score, record, and post results.
