Btw if I get permed for this, at least I know i did it for the better of the server. (Won’t come back)

Heavy Bob, I’ve been waiting a long time to say this just in case I get proved wrong, but I have to say the server is slowly dying. I remember last year at around this time we maxed 100 players, people used to get kicked for being afk. Now we average 30-40 players with numbers going up rarely. (Now keep in mind I have nothing against you or the server and I don’t know how to own a server so you don’t have to listen to me. Don’t be afraid to prove me wrong) Why would the numbers drop? Now I follow a theory that Cale Brought up. “ Why would fortnite still be popular to this day? It’s because it keeps getting updated time and time again” says Cale. Now this theory ( in my opinion) is proven for the server. When we switched to NE 2, people played more. When Vawriss made big changes to the map, more people played. When a new cop car got added. People played. When Community suggestions were added, people appreciated.. We know that you are developing your ggs game, you focus on the future, but if you disregard the present then there is no future to focus on (Bullbar quotes 2019) And us being the people who donated/invested in the server do so to see it grow.

Now the supposed solution?
I recommend that you dedicate more of your time to the gmod server as we know that the game will take years on end. Respond to community suggestions even if you need to deny them, don't leave people waiting for months on end just for it to get denied.
Listen to what the community wants and respond accordingly.
Now if you are doing big things for the server, that is my bad for not knowing, but that goes into you guys for miscommunication. If you are developing big things, notify us in the announcements section just so we have something to expect. Currently we are just waiting on the game. Communicate buddy.
Put your thinking cap on and look to see how we can change/ improve role play on a developers point of view.
Well Heavy I hope this will open your eyes.
If you have anything that you want to be on the thread, comment it and i'll put it on here
Concerning Messages By The Community

Message From Cale Cale- For a long time the server has been on a downward spiral due to the lack of updates and new things being added. Many people quit the server due to the same stale things they do on the server.

Message From Nuro Nuro- I agree that this is something that we are lacking, we are lacking new updates & new additions that will either have big or small impacts on the server, so when we are lacking these new updates, the server loses things to do & people end up losing interest because they feel as if nothing new will be added so whats the point of playing & the community also feels as if there is no communication between Dev's & Community, like the community don't know what is coming or if there is anything coming at all & due to this lack of communication the community will often feel like there is no future for the server.
For example Rust became extremely popular due to its unique play style and the continuous updates to keep people playing & they had bascially weekly updates about adding things or what is to come. This is something that can be replicated on GGS, I understand that the Dev team for GGS is basically 4 people in total & it can be hard to add new things.
Don't hurt me for posting about this, but it is something that needs addressing & I'm not saying this as a way to disrespect you or the Dev team

Message From Nigel (Vinny) Nigel- Yep, until this happens you won't be seeing me around much. Why the hell should we, the players give a flying fuck if Heavy doesn't? Easy enough to take my RP talents to another server.

Message From Mohammed (Messiah) Mohammed- i agree. The problem at hand is that lack of innovation. Smaller changes like cars, cosmetics are O K A Y, but they do not sustain a playerbase. There needs to be larger innovation. Producing the GGS game is going to take a lot of time... and the playerbase will die out as a result if you do not address the issues at hand with the current game/server.

We all want the best for the server and we need more whether that be...

New game Mechanics
Jobs
Map???
Money-making methods
Long term investments that require time (rewards for playing?)

Message From Nick Nick- Kinda sad that on the weekends around lunch time the server has only 30 players but like 8 months ago we used to get about 80-100
We used to even have way more players then the other darkrp servers like supremacy but now we are one of the lowest.


Message From Aaron Aaron- This thread is understandable. The playerbase at the start of this year was great, however now it is very low. My ideas:
-Frequent big fixes
-New maps every month or so (even if it’s just switched between NE1 and NE2)
-New skills
-New jobs/features
-New melee/firearms

Message from David: Heavy won't do this, he finds the server an investment and he won't listen to what we want. He doesn't really care.

Needs to be changed
-New Weapons/Melee
-New Jobs
-New Cars
-Better Medic System, I play medic when I feel like playing some serious roleplay and having it be a whitelist job or something would improve roleplay and unleash the impossible.

Please listen heavy.

This is very true, I feel the things to do on this server as someone in the endgame (endgame meaning you are well over the 1mil in cash mark and have guns to use for fun) there is non existant RP and just pvp. not good!
