thanks for taking them, but there's no real point in posting them.
you know, as a general observation, i don't think massive advertisment will improve general attendance. it's been years now that every month, the 2nd sunday is a ranked DDM and the 4th sunday is a clan war. it should be second nature to most everyone by now, and it should really require no regular advertisment.
it really seems like, you'll get approx 3 times as many people showing up for clan wars than a DDM. i have no idea why, but that has been my general feeling on attendance rates.
it almost seems like people don't like to go it alone, but would rather do battle with team mates.... maybe it's a personal thing with DDM's and people feel that their score is a reflection of themselves whereas in a clan war, they are no longer an individual and their score gets added to the total and they have a degree of anonymity...
i don't know how many months i wondered to myself... why can't all these clan people show up for ddm's. you do the same thing with both of them, you drive around blowing up the other tanks and having fun. the only conclusion that i can think of is that we keep track of the ranked ddm's, and that over time, people would rather desperately try to come in first place instead of desperately try to have fun, get frustrated and just blow the whole thing off and prefer clan wars since their efforts count more.
personally, i'd rather go it alone in a ddm, but i also have expectations that probably are not too common. i can hold my own just fine, but i never expect to do well, and when i do well, it's frosting on the cake for me. and half the time, i'm acting more like an AI tank than a scheming human trying to maximize my frags. but that's just me.
ummm, anyway, nevermind.
