    So I’m constantly seeing in chat box the “the game is dead” or this is “dead” content. I’d just like to know how everyone thinks we can fix this or how we can bring in fresh players? Is there something the normal players can be doing to help bring in new players other than voting and bringing in 1-2 friends to play on occasion. What does this server need to “not be dead” anymore. Been playing soulplay for over 2 years and I know there are others who have played longer and want the same. I’d like to hear some ideas on how to “revive” SP?

    New content weekly would be nice instead of an update once every 8 months

    Things I'd like to see more of:

    -More positive Developer to Staff/Player interaction (ie: knowing your Staff/Community)
    -Better Dev conversation in general. Right now we see an update thread every few months, I'd like to see maybe a monthly update thread. Even if we don't get an ETA on a content release at least we'd get insight on the projects going on and be able to provide feedback on such updates).
    -More frequent updates rather than one giant update/patch give us some QoL updates based on feedback threads to show that player voices are being heard.

    Just my thoughts on what could be improved :)

    Do you think hiring more devs would help? How do we get these things to happen? I love soulplay and I really don’t want to see it slowly become a “dead” server I definitely like all this feedback on how to improve it, but how can we start? Even if it starts with little fixes, where would you personally start? Item #1 for you?

    Things I'd personally like to see.

    -Clan chat ranked member limit increase, 90 isn't enough, plus ranking someone with a name change takes 2 rank slots.
    -Need more pk incentives, more minigame incentives, and more activity/voting incentives.
    -Fix FPS and CPU usage on slower computers too.
    -Make a PVP World.
    -Queen Black Dragon
    -Upgradeable toolbelt
    -World exploration incentives
    -Full Achievement diaries
    -Grenwall hunting
    -Fist of Guthix
    -Forum Usage incentives

    Edit:
    -Elite Veteran in-game rank, requires 1st year signup.

    Julius isn't big into listening to what the players want. He would much rather add what he likes and thinks is best for the server which then turns into dead content.

    As too the question on if hiring more devs will help. Not necessarily. Our devs are good, but their communication skills aren't always the best. For me I'd start with a Quality of Life update based on suggestions for PVP, PVE, and Skilling. Focus on new content after we nail down the stuff our players immediately want fixed. Keep in mind these are my own views on this.

    Making the vote system better would help move soulplay up the list to entice new players. Rewards are too crap atm, reduce cost of dxp scrolls or adding new actually good rewards (flash and speed scrolls are a joke) would help imo.

    I have 2 2018 laptops and am currently building a gaming desktop, my gfx design laptop has issues with running Soulplay in high populated areas, or in OSRS map areas, (i.e. the new wilderness, which makes pking very difficult)
    I already have a second computer that removes this issue, but not everyone can just drop $300-1k on a new rig just for one game :/

    I think culling can fix that problem.
