In my experience there's a sweet spot for Armageddon's PC population. Too few and the game feels stagnant, repetitive, too many and it feels hectic and unfocused. Too few or too many also plays against the staff's efforts. I like somewhere between 80-120 peak players, assuming the eventual reopening of groups or areas to help spread the numbers out a little more evenly. What number each of us prefers is a matter we could debate for days, but I think most of us can agree that our current average peak times don't do the game justice. I bet you deep off-peakers would be happy with triple the boots to loot.
I'd like ideas for places and ways to introduce the game. Let's hear about things that appeal to prospective players.
I'd like to encourage everybody to go out of their way, bend their story just a tad, to draw in an obvious newbie. Even if it's to rob them, as long as we showcase what makes this game great. https://www.reddit.com/r/MUD/
runs a monthly promotion called Let's MUD where they feature a game randomly selected from a group of nominations. Comment if you like. Check out the subreddit if you haven't yet. Upvoting and commenting does nothing for our chances but if there are people there that don't even know what a MUD is like but are curious, they definitely need us talking about it for them. Like nonstop. Let's annoy naysayers with how much more fun we're having.
