I don't mind new formats, but I don't want anything official being altered.

People responding here are a tiny sample of the Gemp community, so I can't see any changes really being justifiable.

That's kind of what I meant, leave the old game how it is, but make new stuff for people, who want new stuff!

So, if somebody was nice enough to clear this of, what do these results mean for us?

This data set means nothing because the sample size is too small to glean any real substance from it.

If you wanted to extrapolate the data, the voting majority says that no substantive changes are made to the game or the way that it is played. The same amount of people who voted for any kind of relaunch voted to keep the game the exact same way it is currently played.

For what it is worth, just a small portion of the Gemp community use this site in any fashion anyways and there is apparently a Facebook group and a Reddit profile for Gemp. It is hard to come to a collaboration of ideas without collaborating people, and there are just far too few left playing this game anyways. We don't need Nate Silver and the FiveThirtyEight team to analyze that.

We live in trying times. The world seems to become a worse place with each passing day. Why not relish in the fact that we have a haven where we can play this game and escape the tumultuous reality that ensnares us?

Yes I heave eyes in my head  Grin LOL! LOL!

What I meant is, if we just ignore the results and try to do a Hobbit-like thing anyway, or if we just let this whole idea in peace and play like it has been done the last 11!!!! years.  Angry Sad Cry

What pisses me off, is, that there are like a Dillion 'Players Committee' threads out there and nothing happened. Doh! Doh! Doh!

This is exactly what will happen, regardless of what you think we should do. And I'll be very happy to continue playing the game that I know and love for as long as it has this very small fan-base.

Go ahead and develop the ideas, set up another GEMP server with the new stuff, and provide players a link to it on these forums.  That way players can try it out, and if they like it, it'll pick up support and interest from players.  That's how it worked when I created GEMP for Star Wars CCG.  Build your ideas, and provide players a way to try it out.  Waiting around for a majority of support up front will mean no progress at all.

My thought remains that strengthening the unaltered 1E community will be necessary to any future incarnations, and should be the focus of everyone regardless of how they want the game to live on in the future.

I agree with this. I am happy with the game we have now, and if I want a new game, I'll probably just go find a new game.



So Phallen, ket, do you have any plans to do so? If yes, how exactly?
If your are both totally fine with the game being dead, it should still be in your interest in getting new players?

Ideas:
 -Leaflets,
-Tournaments,
-Promos,
-Advertise in game shop to other strange nerds who are way more likely to go for it,
-(and, in my opinion, how to hold these players, since if I was a new player, I'd probably stick to a game with absolute no change in meta at all, errata, banlists, new cards(rules))...

But what was it what you intended?

I dont think you have the capacity to do all this.

You mentioned you are going through very rough patch in life and this seems like a vent. I suggest you take care of other things and then think about lotr tcg because this all seems like a ramble. I wish you all the best in your life tho.

Well, I didn't completely get what you meant, but I'm totally fine.
 I'm a student right now, what means I have a lot of time.  How YOU Doin'? How YOU Doin'?

And I would be happy, if in this time I could do something for this community and the game as a whole.  LOL! LOL!
