this ones mostly addressing you gourdo There are like 7 people playing this game. This close knit little hub of people squabbling back and fourth over the same two topics. Im sure youve noticed it in your short time with our community. essentially, we are dying. back in its prime, rumble fighter had a good couple thousand people logging on within the day, and that would be a slow day. in its youth, this game was the bees knees. but slowly over the years not only has the quality seem to have dropped, but also the population. for obvious reasons of course. we have had several start overs. reboots and republishing. it makes an old dog all the more wary. ESPECIALLY WHEN WE HAVE NO ADVERTISEMENT TO FURTHER SPREAD THE GAME. has no one noticed how unknown rumble fighter is to the rest of the gaming world. its not because were a boring game. its not because we have nothing to offer. no, its not even because our sole developer is a lonely Korean guy sitting in a board room by himself trying to how to video on shaving. its not. its not any ones fault specifically. by now youre wondering what im rambling on about. well i got a magical cure all for you buddy. were gonna spread the good word. i propose to you...the revival project. what it is the key to re kindling our community is advertisement. you cant grow a fire with out matches. and you sure as hell cant roast a turkey with sparks. so this needs to be a big movement. and the only way were gonna go big is by having full support from you, i.e mister gourdy-the gourdo. essentially the revival project is a host sponsored event that gives all players the chance to participate and contribute. seeing as how neither the publisher nor the developer are going to fork over the funds to do it themselves, were gonna use the player base as free manual labor. its a two phase initiative the first part will be prep work. host a casual art event for players to make banners show casing their favorite aspects of rumble fighter. it can be any thing. as long as the banners are either dynamic, attractive, or interesting. once all entries are in and deadlines are reached choose how ever many banners as winners and we can commence phase two. phase two is the fun part. this is where effort goes straight into results. this second even will be a raffle. using the winning banners of the previous event we are going to openly distribute them to the player base. were gonna make a whole big show about this part because its the crucial key to success. the banners need to be available for print. players will print these banners out and take out to the streets to spread the good word. and every time they post a banner in a public place their name will be entered into a raffle. so for example if i printed out four banners and i took them out into the world and posted them in four separate locations for the public to see, then my name would go four times into a grand prize raffle. now i know what youre thinking. "dese varmits r some darn cheatin dinguses, Mockery, how we is gon get round dat dere fact." thats pretty simple gourdo. were gonna have them put in proof. every time a banner is posted publicly, the player must take a picture of it being posted up in order for the raffle submission to count. so say if i put a banner up at my local library, i would take out my handy dandy smartphone or camera and take a picture of the banner displaying proudly. then i would post the picture into the event thread with a brief description and my IGN. and theres my raffle entry. this would need to be done for EVERY INDIVIDUAL entry. what do the players get out of this admittedly this is a good amount of work. first you gotta get a printer then you gotta print it then you gotta tape it up on a thing then you gotta take a picture wow exhausting to compensate for the player base risking LIFE and LIMB to help their beloved game, we need to have a prize they can drool over. the grand prize. i have a couple ideas about this grand prize that we could discuss more on privately but heres a general spitball idea. one first place winner will receive a stack of RC so fat that it makes their momma look like the deceased Micheal jackson along with a signed thank you letter from nimonix himself and a special one of a kind (newly made and never again will be made) savior of RF set some thing that NO ONE else will ever have. its also gotta look really hot okay and one other rare thing of their choice 20 second place winners will receive a moderate stack of RC a rare item of their choice 30 third place winners will receive a like on their entry posts and idk like 50k carats or some thing the rest will receive a like on their entry posts from [GM]gourdy conclusion thats the general gist of it i hope to hear from a moderator on feedback. at the very least id like a little heads up if theres any interest in this project at all. ive kicked around the idea for quite some time now but never took the time to jot it down. im aware that this prompt was unorganized and scattered. i still hope to hear from you mister gourdo. please contact me if youre on the fence or just seeking more details and information. also if its completely out of your hands but you still want to give it a try, then its a good idea to back it up publicly and let the player base give it a go. for casual forum viewers who read through all this. please dont tease me ill cry. i dont like typing long winded things.
