you can see the example i do in singapore , i collect friends , after that the other half of the people who i dont know reply to me when i ask any1 want an invite to a premium game ... they reply since its like they have no choice or they are eager for it when i tell them that every1 who we're here went their... and little by little now we have people who subscribed naturally ... in the last week 10 subscriptions from people i saw earlier who we're standard are now premium ... and yesterday for the first time in all of Asia ( this year ) .. 9 hours of CTF activity with no less then 6 people in the duration of 5 to 10 minutes . meaning when the server is draining ... in 5 to 10 min it gets back to 12 or 14 players... it kept going for 9 hours straight ... and now couple of people started to love CTF ... who infact are primarily CA players .. and ive seen people join server persuading people to go to CA and they reply no . they also say stay here its more fun... hopefully this opens up the road for multiple liking's and mood feel of what game mode to play with motivation to its extent.
i started quake FFA and went along mods and all , then fell into what the community of my country used to only play was Ra3 and OSP / CPMA .. i didnt have a chance to play CTF in the past... when i lived in Australia for couple of years , i had a choice between lots of servers , duel / rocketarena + CTF .... little by little i came in love to CTF and played that mostly , Ra3 was no interest to me since i have overseeded every play style rocketjump action shot possibly done to the extent of quake codes literature . CTF in the other hand had a flag and had many scenario's and objective in defense offense interception of flag carrier , and flag rebounding ( drop / take / drop take by ur teams ) ... it was like hunting and FFA + TDM , but i have played as a lonewolf like kilotr cant remember hes name but hes from Australia i just met recently in quakelive , and hes play style is full of humor , he draws hes team and learns from it and does whats best suits him ... that means if all my team is noobs , i can still make it fun for me.
