Since the release of Gotham Divided coast city does not get play. Unless it is in a custom match and even then those custom matches are few and far between. Being a lover of the map, its mechanics, and how it started much of how we run our meta's in GD. I am truly saddened by its decline in play time. Why do I not queue for CC? One may ask, the last time I did so I waited for over an hour and thirty mins and still nothing. Not so much as a false pop. This is ridiculous three maps and one is now being called the "Ghost City Marina".
I do not know if the dev's care all that much but I have a few proposals as to what to do about this lack of play. One first and foremost continue with the pro scene in CC, don't just let it die because there is a three lane map now. Two add in the option to run a 3v3 in both GD map as well as CC.
Why would we do that? Simple you can increase number of people playing instead of waiting on a game and decrease the number of complaints people have about waiting on a game and queue times being "stupid" long. Why would you continue with a pro scene in CC? Well that one is simple as well, it is the map that started your pro scene promote it with pride, the number of people that flocked to CC because they saw the ESL sky rocketed. BUt after the initial surge of interest, due to the fact that more people wanted GD instead (NA server the minority wanted CC) those who were interested in trying to play the map did not get the chance.
Finally I propose a bi weekly bracket competition of some sort that gives a minor real cash reward (Crisis coins) and a major merit coin reward. Not only boosting the maps play time but also giving something back to the Community. The bracket would obviously need to be handled by IC as would The rewards. However first thing that is needed is interest from the People. Give me your feedback guys. I have a fully mapped out plan for how the brack would work number of teams allowed, prerequisites for entering, as well as number of hours needed to play in order to receive certain rewards, as well as a solo queue bracket setup as well and prerequisites for that as well.
