(LETS TALK!) The Fall of Bridges... Will it ever come-back?

Discussion in 'The Bridges' started by SirSheeples, Aug 30, 2020.

  1. Hello!

    I feel like there are many contributing factors to the fall of bridges, it was very popular back in the day but I feel that the Bridges community transferred over to Cake Wars predominantly. The games were very long, and if you died it felt super frustrating unless you were a very skilled player who rarely dies early, but it takes time to get to be good at Bridges. Cake Wars is a much more forgiving game, and allows you to die but still remain in the game if your cake is still uneaten. I believe that since it is much more forgiving, and much faster in terms of pace, that people like Cake Wars more. Most people want to just hop into the fighting action, and in the Bridges you have to grind to get all of your materials in that 10 minute window with games lasting up to 50+ minutes. I feel like Cake Wars is just the superior game, and that game kind of resulted in the falling off of the Bridges.

    The Bridges will definitely remain to be played in large events, however I do not think it will ever truly revive in the sense of being able to just que up in the lobby, but hey only time will tell :)

  2. Hey, these are interesting ideas but in my opinion, BR doesn't need "falling meteors" or special effects. Although yeah, I agree it's in need of an update, for which GI are planning currently. It'd be nice to keep the game more classic and original and not add a load of special effects because that's really not what any of the BR community want in terms of steps forward for the game. It requires 20 players to start, which means that at certain times in the day, like UHC, it won't start. Games quite often start in the evening, two nights ago there were 92 players on BR which was a pretty decent player count in my opinion - an update would attract more to the game I'm sure. Other games can be played in the meantime whilst BR games aren't starting, which is what a lot of the community currently do. Thanks for the ideas though :)

  3. They are interesting ideas, but I feel like they would probably be better off as a new game. Bridges players are more interested in just killing the other players. I'd love to see these special effects added, but to a new game instead of an existing game that is already on the server. Adding a tower with levels of (the special effects noted) would probs be a better path on this idea.

  5. I agree that new additions to Bridges could be crucial. Servers used to fill up in seconds, and now they can take nearly a half an hour to do so. I really do miss how lively this game mode was, and the community within it. New kits and maps could help, but I think it's best to try and keep Bridges like it was years ago...

  7. Biggest problem is the game's just filled with tryhards and people who crossteam to quickly kill the whole lobby within the first few minutes, so casual players don't want to keep playing, which causes less players in the overall game and it slowly dies.

  8. All java games suffer from lack of updates syndrome.

  9. I never liked playing bridges because it felt too competitive for me, and I also hate how the games last forever. There's also people that skybase which make the game horrible. Also I have horrible luck when it comes to collecting resources, I never find diamonds and never get enough iron.

  10. bruh paladise is right lmao, if a bridges lobby does start, it'll usually have a party of players that are all in a vc ready to destroy the lobby. While yes, the party of players will be having fun, the rest of the lobby who spent 10 minutes gathering resources only to get immediately destroyed after will just quit the game lol, that's why bridges is dead.
    I almost NEVER play bridges unless I'm playing with a party of good people. Why? Because it isn't fun otherwise lol. I'm not going to waste my time mining for resources for 10 mins only to get destroyed by a party of sweats immediately after. Instead, I'm just going to never play bridges :)

    I ain't bouta spend 10 mins mining, only to die to a party of lvl 80+ beserkers and then wait in spectate for 30 minutes because of sky campers. Its hella obvious why this game is dying, at least for me it is.

  13. When you combine the sweat from the players and their closet and xray hacks it just stinks.

  15. I agree, I think this game needs to have a bit more updates. It is old, and I'd love to see new features

  16. So I am going to be honest with you. I haven't played this game since like 2015, so I'm part of the reason there's a smaller playerbase. I wasn't great at the game in the first place and sweaty parties weren't even an issue back then. I just started to lose interest over time, and that's the reason the game loses popularity. Now it's worse because as people said before me, the best players are the ones that have spent years on the server and they also have a lot of friends that they are able to play with. That chases average players away who feel like they don't even have a chance, so the game becomes frustrating to them. So then all you have is the pros and everyone who dies instantly. It's probably gonna be hard to avoid this because this game doesn't have a lot of lobbies open due to lack of players. Can't get rid of good players, so the only way this problem is gonna be solved is if Mineplex can attract more players to the game for more lobbies to be available, thus creating more ways to avoid parties of color coded immortals with edater skins. But Mineplex has a low player count overall, so unless Mineplex as a whole starts to become more popular, I don't think the players on The Bridges is going to increase anytime soon.

  17. Hey!

    I do agree that the bridges isn't as alive as it used to be and that does make me sad, however games do still start most days and it still is enjoyable to play as most lobbies do now full!
    I'm hoping that bridges to become more alive again as the game mode is epic and used to be my favourite game back in the day

  18. It's very sad how far this game has fallen. The other day, I was online at an off time, and bridges had 3 people playing. As for how to resolve the issue, generally speaking, more people play after a content update, so maybe Mineplex could add more maps. Despite some bugs, bridges seems less buggy then many other games on the network.

  19. I also played the game 4 or 5 years ago and then kind of stopped playing minecraft in general. It is a shame popularity has died down for the game. On a good day you can get about 25/26 people playing - which is fine, but not what it was back in 2015/2016.

    I agree with what Darkduelist said. You can spend 10 minutes mining only to get killed in the first 10 seconds. I feel like there should be a respawn kit maybe? Which allows you to respawn once on your island if you get killed.

    I also think they should reduce the threshold number of players needed to start a game. A common occurence I've noticed is when a lobby will get something like 18/40 players but because the game needs at least 22ish players to start, nothing happens and people leave out of bordom of waiting.

    I think it might also be worth having say, 7 or 8 chest on each island. That contain helemts, weapons, food etc. So it reduces the time that players needto spend mining.
