A mass email, to who, the guys that already have a fucking dedicated app that tells them "YOU COULD GET A GAME OF ALLEGIANCE NOW" when a couple people get on?

who the $#@! actually uses email as a primary means of communication in regards to a video game? Are you trying to reach an audience that will play this game, or an audience that's too old to figure out how to even remap the horrid default control scheme, let alone be interested in a video game at all?

You need to reach out to people who like video games, people who play MOBAs and call of duty and @#(!. The game needs to be advertised as "HOLY @#(! LOOK AT ALL THESE COOL LASERS AND SHIPS WOW THAT THING JUST BLEW UP HOLY @#(! YOURE $#@!IN PODDED" and any dumbass mention of @cadet needs to be completely removed from any marketing. @Cadet tells new players, who just want to shoot @#(!, that the game is a bottomless sea that they'll drown in. Advertising @Cadet is like telling people "You need to take a class to be competent at the game."

Team Death match and CTF need to be the face of the game. People don't want a 90 minute escapade where some 50 year old idiot who's been playing the game the same way for 15 years yells at them and tells them to $#@!ing drop probes, or to get in a scout and shoot donuts at a bomber. No one likes doing that @#(! their first few games. They want to shoot @#(!. Games should be loose and not serious, noobs should comm when possible, forcing resignations and mutinies should be out of the question. The game has to be accessible. It's not accessible at all for a billion reasons, and half of those reasons are the idiotic community that consists of, what, like, 200 people? Who have a strict meta that needs to be followed and take every game too seriously.

The game's been hemorrhaging players for over a decade while comms abuse players who just want to fly around, try out ships, and blow things up. A game you describe as "FREE SPACE RTS SIM GAME" or whatever the $#@! the website says does NOT BRING IN PLAYERS. It needs to be "INTENSE SKILL-BASED DOG FIGHTING ACTION" and then when new players actually play the $#@!ing game for a while, don't get bitched out by some $#@!ing moron who treats this @#(! as his holy cow, or bullied and told to probe or ram into a friendly bomber or "sit here near an AI ship for 5 minutes and maybe something will happen" or even "get murdered after a 25 minute slog of doing nothing interesting to the average new player, slowly fly back to base, repeat"

The game has numerous options and settings and all anyone has ever wanted to do for 10 $#@!ing years is conquest on big maps for hour+ long games, where anywhere from 3-10 players are doing nothing interesting that holds their attention. The people who would actually play this game if you whet their appetite aren't going to put up with this crap, especially when you need to SCHEDULE A $#@!ING MATCH DAYS IN ADVANCE, and this is ontop of all the other nonsense they have to go through just to $#@!ing be in a game and fly properly.

The game is a relic of the past, yet it's had the ability to be something that will interest the next generation of people. It's hampered by management who simply don't give a @#(!, are incompetent, or have their heads up their ass and have no idea how to make the game attractive to new players. The community being a stupid ass @#(!fest of baby boomer vets who take everything too seriously and mechanics that many people need a $#@!ING CLASS to understand doesn't help.

Make people think the game is Halo in space. Stop treating it like this SUPER DEEP COMPLEX 40 HOUR JUST TO LEARN HOW TO PLAY endeavor, stop showing the $#@!ing tactical screen in vids and promos, stop spamming the pre recorded voice comms in videos. None of it seems interesting or even real. It's the worst kind of rehearsed @#(! ever in those videos on the site. A simple video of guys dogfighting while they're yelling at each other over something like Discord, and then some playful cursing and bitching after getting podded and the PKd will do wonders.

There are so many ways to play this game, so many ways to make people interested in it, and everyone's been doing the same exact thing for 10 years expecting it to bring in new people. Retarded as $#@!. Everything about how the game has been handled in this futile, self-defeating way of bringing in and retaining new players is retarded. It's like some guy trying to sell porn mags from a shop with no neon light signs next to a giant megastore selling VR porn headsets with optional *#$@sleeve attachment. You're in the nichest of niches and you won't change how you do @#(!, besides bending over backwards to make things slightly easier for an ever shrinking customer base.

It's not my failing, a guy who drops in once or twice a year at most, to keep your game from dying. You guys never thought to do anything useful or different. I can't imagine how much money has been wasted on game servers that are empty 24/7, a website that gets a few dozen unique views a month, and a forum that has 5 or 6 people on it at any given time, for years. You guys have been in a shrinking bubble for over a decade and never bothered going outside of it.

Your dumbass and defensive attitude is just another reason why the game will never attract a new playerbase. It's not like anything anyone says here will be seen by anyone who gives enough of a @#(! to actually download the game, try to get it to run on their hardware, bull@#(! with dumbass default keymaps, and then sit through the trial of playing with 2 or 3 other people at a time, or maybe getting to enjoy a game of maybe 20 or 30 people, all who've been playing the game the same exact way for 15 years, and expect everyone else to play it the same way.

All this @#(! I'm talking about should have been done years ago when you could reasonably find a decent sized game at any time. No one is going to bother with a game that requires an app to match up against like, 40 other people, 5 max who are on at any point, when they can just play any number of F2P titles or any AAA game that comes out. Indie games viraled by one guy posting over and over again on reddit or 4chan or twitter or some @#(! have larger player bases than this @#(!.
