re-release this game?
this game has got to be my all time favorite game. i loved the hell out of it, but it died so quick in the U.S. are there are any plans to re-release? maybe with some drastic optimizations (im taking major overhaul, some of the biggest complaints was teh game ran poorly). releasing all current community maps as official maps. talk to valve and try to get maybe a drops system running. microtransactions are pretty common now, and the drops system like what is used in tf2 and csgo are very popular and create plenty of revenue. upon release, provide a very helpful tutorial to help new players learn the game, as well as add some sort of hints system. because this is a competitive game, i would say that the netcode should be looked over again, to ensure good consistency on any server. GET SPONSORS, MAKE SPECIAL DISCOUNTS. get with steelseries, razer, benq, or whoever, and give owners of these products (the people who register whatever product they bought, and create a members account with the manufacturer) a discount, or a free copy. not only that, but get the sponsors to help back more tournaments. talk to esea or FaceIt and get involved with them too.

well thats my two cents, hope you all enjoyed.

There will be another part of this game with another environment. That should help.

if i see a commercial for shootmania on television, i will literally send nadeo a box of captain crunch to nadeo, or wherever their p.o. box is. that and buy a bunch of copies for friends

Those large advertisement campaigns cost millions of dollars and are usually only for large AAA titles, like Battlefield, CoD, Assassin's Creed and the likes. I doubt that we'll ever see a TV campaign
Youtube Ads may probably happen tho. We had em before.

is there going to be a steam sale? or maybe tf2 items or something to help increase sales? I would love to be able to play on a populated US server. especially a US battle server. i sure hope this update works, this game is waaaayy too good to not be played.

EDIT:♥♥♥♥♥♥ i'd buy another copy just to get some tf2 items. shootmania in tf2 would be badass.

had an idea for one (hopefully there is more than one) special item.

the item is for the scout. it is called the "shooter's wrist rocket" and it is a sidearm, that fires projectiles and looks just like the shootmania wrist cannon thing. does +15% damage, only 4 rounds in the magazine, but can knock back targets.

as well as there should be some hats, or perhaps those sweet goggles that shootmania models wear.

another note, i would be more than happy to work with the devs to increase the population of this game in any way possible.

I agree with you about the fact this game needs more players and a more solid reputation, with an optimized netcode and an improved lobby system and player parties. Because this game provides some excellent gameplay which is the essence of shooters : shoot and dodge, but with a whole lot of variety in its gamemodes.

i agree, like how trackmania focuses entirely on PRECISION in driving, shootmania encompasses absolute precision in movement and accuracy. as well as another thing i might add to the update list, fix the UI and main menu. i personally don't have a problem with it, it fits well with what mania planet is trying to accomplish, but after all you have to appeal to the majority to get a majority, so i think the UI needs a much more user friendly/ common UI.

regarding your tf2 items idea I think some simple re-skins would suffice.
Like some laser type shortstop. Also it's easy to fit in some nice headgear as well, akin to the cyber punk style valve took with the gb laser items :)

I feel like the big issue with this game was it wasn't cheap enough soon enough. It took quite a while for the game to even be half off and the steam normal is 75% percent off.
