I feel that the Wasteland Race and Uranium Heist need better exposure. One step towards that was official servers for Uranium Heist, but people join and leave 2 minutes later because nothing is happening. Two proposals for improvement:
- Have some notification on Discord that says: "Today at X o'clock UTC, Uranium Heist on EU #4 steam://connect/22.214.171.124:27018"
The people can plan ahead and join all at once probably.
- Drop the minimum player count so that 2 people are enough to start the match. When people see that there is some action going on they are more likely to wait to the end of the match to join in.
- Give players the option to vote as seen in other online shooters. Humans are social animals and if we see 3 people waiting in the lobby while 2 are playing we have mercy and vote to restart the match.
- Alternatively (to voting for a restart) allow for "late joins", so everyone can jump right into the ongoing match without waiting time.
