Splitting Playerbase

Discussion in 'MCO/Bedrock Discussion' started by NothinButNet, Mar 24, 2020.

  1. Anytime Solo Cakewars is mentioned it always is denied because of splitting the playerbase. My proposal is this. Remove Duos, and add Solo cakewars.

    Why replace

    1. In DUOS Spawn in without teammate (not full lobby)

    Duos is already not popular so sometimes the lobby doesn’t fill up. If indeed we replace duos with solo mode. It will require only 8 players. That means it will fill up faster.

    2. IN DUOS Can’t be on same team with friends

    Anyone who has tried knows that is basically impossible for a party of two players to be on the same team on duos mode because of how the party system is setup.

    3. SOLO No more 1v2 games

    Simple, if a lobby doesn’t fill up and you have 6/8 players it is still solo mode so that means it is a 1v1 still and fair game.

    4. SOLO Strategy and Competition

    most players who feel confident or in their pvp skills will want to play solo mode. Even those who don’t will still play it and want to. It will require more strategy because now you can’t have a teammate carry you or defend your cake. It is all up to you soldier xD. Now why is this a good thing? Maybe it will bring more competitive players to the server who want to get their hardcore grind on.

    5. Friends

    Someone might argue! Well I like bringing my friends into duos and fighting them. Well what’s stopping you from doing that with solo mode?

    6. It will split the playerbase

    2 Gamemode playerbases -1Gamemode playerbase=1 Gamemode playerbase left

    when you replace/add back gamemode playerbase you now = 2gamemode playerbases.

    7. Will people enjoy it/or want it?

    If you look at the forums and the past or even recently. You can find so many people who support and want Solo cakewars. The problem was before no one thought about playerbase splitting. That is why we need to replace duos!

    8. Quicker Games?

    This is a mobile game afterall so people might want to play some quick games of cakewars so why not appeal to the mobile gamers out there.

    Thank you for reading this thread, I really appreciate it. Love to know your thoughts and please remember to stay healthy and practice social distancing.














    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^People who want Solo Cakewars (I can find more if you want xD)

  3. I would love the idea of solo cake wars and it has been something that has been brought up over and over. Personally, I like duo cake wars though, I was thinking maybe instead of getting rid of duo cake wars how about we get rid of squad cake wars? Squad cake wars makes it hard to find 3 other friends and if it's just duo and solo cake wars games will fill up super fast. That's just how I look at this situation.

    Have a good day!

  4. Tell me if I’m wrong @Dacked, but based off of my observation with your account. I don’t see a MCPE/Bedrock account linked. All I see is Java which is why your opinion is thinking about Java and not Bedrock even though I posted this thread in the Bedrock Discussion. I honestly don’t think Java Edition will ever get a solo cakewars mode just because of how the player count is doing right now. You probably don’t have the experience in Bedrock to understand why I say we should replace duos. My two best reasons are this

    1. Party System is still buggy (MCPE/BEDROCK)

    Here on bedrock we can’t play with our friend in Duos mode because for some reason it always splits you up even when we are in a party. I bet if you wait long enough maybe you will get lucky after trying 100 times but I never have gotten on the same team as my friend on Duos mode. So we absolutely should not remove regular mode because that is the only way here on bedrock we can actually play with our friends. If I am playing with one friend or even 3 friends and we do regular we almost always will be put on the same team if we all que for Green. It only works if you que for green or else it will split you up.

    2. (FILLING LOBBIES) Now this also applys to Java Edition but I mean it for Bedrock.

    The one time I did go on mineplex Java Edition Duos cakewars. I think it was last month and I didn’t even get a teammate. Which means I’m already at a disadvantage. 2v1 is not fun on Java Mineplex. And I’m sure there is a lot of times where it happens to other people too because of the lack of popularity. On Bedrock we also have the same problem (not as bad) but time to time I find myself alone in a duos game against other duo teams. Almost every round there are at least two color of teams that only have one player on it.

    Do you see how bedrock absolutely cannot remove Regular but the best way possible is to remove Duos?

  5. I actually think they should just simply add Solos, I don't think the splitting up the player base issue is that big. There are usually hundreds of people playing CW. Some game modes only have 40 players, and their games don't have issues starting. With the hundreds of people playing Cakewars, I don't think it will be that much of an issue that Mineplex splits up the Cakewars player base a little.

    I just think that it's dumb that the idea wasn't accepted earlier, Mineplex should be more confident in how many players are playing its game!

  6. Thank you! And yeah because they keep denying because of this I introduced this topic which really I only apply to bedrock because it is useless and impossible to play with a friend in duos on bedrock Edition because of the broken party system.

  8. Honestly, I'm all for it. I'd like to see this change for both Bedrock and Java, even though this focuses on the Bedrock aspect. Solos seems to be a lot more popular than Duos, and I really think that it would attract a larger player base than Duos currently does. There have been polls in the Community Insights about this same thing too, and they have gone really well in favor of this idea. Duos is not too much fun in my opinion, but Solos would add a new spin on the game, which we really have not seen in a long time.

  10. At first glance It was a no for me. But as I continued reading the thread it became more difficult not to agree with you. I doubt there would be a split in the community because of solo cakewars. But I disagree that we should get rid of duos, I enjoy playing duos myself. I think everyone's on board with this idea. I play a decent amount of cake wars and I can say it would be nice to have a fresh game mode! +1 from me. -(Beets)

  11. I personally think a solo cake wars would be a fun game mode to add to the game. Truly a good way to practice PvP on Mineplex. I am all in favor of this as it has the same vibe as SG solo in a way. I am pretty sure the community is also in favor of this idea since a recent poll in the Mineplex discord proved that the majority of the community wanted Cake Wars Solo to replace the Cake wars Duo version.

    I also see the Cake wars duo version to be less useful of a game-mode comparing to the teams version. People have to guarantee a teammate if they solo queue, so a solo version would be great for people that would want to queue solo. Not everything has to simply be team based, as a lot of games on Mineplex are team based.

    Overall though, I am pretty sure Mineplex will make this change as soon as possible, considering a majority of the community was in favor of this idea. I am pretty sure they made this poll a day after you made this thread, so props to you making this idea. I am pretty sure other people suggested this, but nice job. Hope this change is made soon.
