    While I agree with the first part of your post, I disagree with a very short (daily) map change intervals.
    First of all, you need some time to get used to a new mode and to try different things....

    btw yesterday evening, not a single bar (popularity of the ingame client) was visible for Riftwars.

    Letting people queue for AP (normal Grimms Crossing) and Riftwars simultaneously is also a good...

    Thanks for your response, AceJR!

    You could rotate the maps based on fixed intervals (1-2 months cycle sound reasonable) or you could determine a minimum "uptime" (lets say 1 month) and monitor the...

    I just compared the popularity feature (number of bars) of the ingame client with other modes nowadays and compared it also with the popularity when riftwars started.

    @ AceJR

    Since Riftwars is not popular at all: Why don't you try to stir up things by replacing it for a certain amount of time with the normal Grimms Crossing Map?

    That the avarage amount of money spend per player is higher in HoN than in LoL is everything but surprising since LoL is growing and appeals more to the mass of people. HoN lost players during the...

    Well said!
    The only "punishment" you could introduce is to remove players from the ladder after 2 weeks instead of 4. If you want to be on top of the ladder, you have to play more regularily on the...

    @ Warpstone

    (HD) Streaming uses a lot of bandwith. It's not comparable to game data.
    The game view requires only the data of the camera position. So it should not really use more bandwidth. If...

    Why should the server load increase, when sending the same information to multiple clients? If the bandwidth is not high enough, you would also get problems during peak hours when...

    MMR loss should never be punishment since MMR is (the) one important factor for matchmaking.

    The idea to reset the MMR gain/loss after a player gets banned would improve the significance of MMR...

    By increasing the playerbase (to reach this goal, alternative avatars or even new heroes are more than irrelevant) and have an influx of new players. But unfortunately, this ship has sailed.
