    Part of the reason why I lobbied for solo for a while :p, not that i love playing solo, just the option of playhing with small team or alone is cool when there 17 ppl in notd lobby :p. like last night. But yeah how can we get more ppl in game???

    Ramses II Help, I can't change my title!

    The key is to wait until people get bored of Diablo 3 and decide to go back to SC2 and try some more custom games. By which time (hopefully) the next SC2 patch will be out and we'll have the map arcade and the tutorial map.

    Ye, NOTD took a big hit from D3. Channel average roughly went down from 70s to 40-50s, at least that what it looks like whenever I log on. Hope it will go back up when people get bored of D3.

    The worst, most amusing part is now we have players like "MarineHero".

    Pretty much this. Diablo 3 was long awaited just like Starcraft 2. I expect people to grind out D3 for 2-3 months, as Blizzards works to fix a few things (chat for starters, more varied gear, anything that arises from AH's). Some vets will come drifitng back in about 3-6 months, probably just in time for HotS around end of the year. It's going to be a quiet time around here and most of SC2 for a while. Currently Ability is having family issues which he needs to take the time to deal with (It sucks for him atm). When he has time, I figure he will implement more bug fixes + class reworks. Currently Delta Commando is being finished up, Rifleman will get some rework and Assault will get minor rework (almost nothing being changed). Also tutorial mode is in the works and that SHOULD help boost the player count, since we won't have people joining recruit, have no clue, die inside 5 min, and are like "Fuck this stupid game" and never play again.

    The more videos idea would help.

    Like class feature videos (which were being done before) but more in depth.

    Doesn't have to have a voice over, even just text w/ in game sfx would do. Would personally do it but my rig isn't equipped for recording (or even playing) at ultra. An issue since if you're promoting a game, might as well use the most visually tantalizing effects you can muster.

    Let's make a video on how NOT to play NotD, considering they happen more often.

    Lol, well that was part of the reason i was lobbying for solo. But really not just solo, a way to keep the games madness intact but most new ppl to the game dont like waiting 15 mins in lobby for a full house, so if say u had 3-6 players but somehow even'd it out like i was saying with a few extra marines at start, who knows, could have 2 minute lobbies instead of 20.

    I actually dislike solo, just for the record. I mean of course id rather play with a full house but not always an option.

    Notice how their styles differ vastly from one another. Some informative, some not so much, some kind of confusing and you can't tell what's really being shown.

    Also, Audiomachine. :)

    Wait till next patch, Blizzard is adding a dedicated module to Galaxy editor for doing in game cinematics.

    I'm pretty sure we can and many other custom games can.
