While this is true, a good reason why era servers are usually super inactive within a few months of the map opening is because, the people who DO join the era maps (atleast, i would assume) don't stick around for long because the prizes are god awful and theres no reason to compete for them. If there was more incentive to declare war on the glory house and make a run for the gold spot I guarantee the maps would bring in more players. It might not entice more players from other maps who don't play era servers to join, but it would create more competition and have more players stay on 1 server (or so I would assume)jared0215 wrote: Not everyone cared about the prizes at the end of the world. Most of us like myself just enjoyed playing the game. If I tolf the people I know that the prize changed back to normal that wouldnt even be close to enough to bring them back to the game.
A lot of the action on new maps happens in eras 1 & 2, sometimes 3 but usually not. The only 2 Era servers I have seen that are still active past Era 2 are Europe 5 and USA 5. Increasing the prize pool would encourage more players to stay and further compete for the gold prizes.
EDIT: I realized after posting this that another reason era maps die out in the beginning is because the main group of players who join every era map (not saying names, but you know who I'm talking about) pretty much wreck everyone in the first era. I personally have no problems with that playstyle, and sure the people secure the victory of the map but most of the time everyone they declare on quit after the war. Increased prizes would hopefully encourage them to stay on the map and not leave immediately.
