Hello everyone! Let’s get straight to the point. While playing on Shotbow I feel like some things could easily be improved/added, to have an even better experience. So, I’ve made up a list for each gamemode with a few suggestions. I know Shotbow doesn’t have the people to implement a lot of updates like this, as SMASH doesn’t even have a Developer. Still, I want to suggest all of these things for the future maybe? ANNIHILATION: Add SMASH/Lobby particles to the Annihilation lobby. It would be a small but fun feature to have, it’s in other lobbies so why not on Annihilation as well. Improve hit detection/PVP. I don’t like the way PvP feels at this moment, it feels weird. Sometimes I hit people and they don’t even get damage. Remove a few game servers There are always a lot of votings going one, which means some games are not completely filled up. Maybe remove some game-server so you’ll have even fuller games and it also gives you new RAM to store on other servers for a less lag/better experience. Add Squally’s Battle Pass suggestion. Click HERE. I really liked Squally’s Battle Pass suggestions, I really think this could make a difference to bring back players to Annihilation. Bring back 8v8. This shouldn’t be a big priority tbh, but I still wanted to point it out. Maybe bring back 8v8 with a completely revamped idea. Maybe it could work with parties or clans, so the leader could change a map, set durations, phase lengths and, nexus health’s. Just how it works on SMASH. SMASH: Improve hit detection/PVP. Also on SMASH the hit detection feels really odd, it’s really glitchy. Add a smaller lobby, maybe even the old one. The current lobby is too big, back when we had the smaller lobby players were closer to each other and it gave a better feeling if that makes sense. A lot of people don’t like this lobby, and it doesn’t feel like SMASH when I’m in the lobby. Add new maps. I’m not saying this because I recently submitted two maps, but I believe a lot of people would love to try out new maps. When new maps get added, it gives people that are bored of SMASH a reason to come back. Add a party chat. I’d love a party chat, so you can just chat with everyone that’s in your party. Means other people can’t see your conversations and you do not have to PM every single party member. Add a /particles command. This would make it easier to switch particles, you don’t have to run all the way to the particle sign if you’re not around. This will also give the possibility to change your particles mid-game. Ranked Matches should start with less players. A lot of the time there are not enough players on to even start a ranked match, why not reduce the min players for ranked to start? (It could be 2 or 3). Add a /stats show. Add a stats command just like on Annihilation, it will show how many matches you’ve won for unranked and ranked. It also shows how many kills, etc.. etc.. Add /queue join/leave and /queue info. Same point as the /particles command, you don’t have to run all the way to the signs if you’re not around. Also /queue info, will show everyone that’s queued up. GG: I know GG will get an update soon but I still want to give my suggestions. Implement a new lobby. The current lobby is well detailed but yet boring, you can’t go anywhere. There’s barrier blocks everywhere you go. A lobby should be a place you can discover, run around when you’re bored. Sorry to say, but this lobby is simply boring as you can’t go anywhere. Change KOTD maps. These KOTD maps have been there for years, and there are not of very good quality to be honest. I submitted 2 KOTD maps in the past but I’ve never gotten a reaction on it. Add an Annihilation PVP Mode. Click HERE. Well, this doesn’t really need an explanation I guess. Add an Annihilation PVP mode like I suggested years ago. This could work with famous spots on current/old Annihilation maps on GG. Improve hit detection/PVP. Yes, the PVP is also very weird on GG. Hit detection is not right as sometimes my opponents don’t get damage when I actually hit them. Add your rank in the TAB list like on other lobbies. Add your rank as a prefix in TAB list just like on Annihilation, SMASH, and in the lobby. Example: [O] Axyy DEATH BY VOID: Implement a new lobby. The current lobby is really old, although I like it. The lobby can be improved a lot as doesn’t really have any well detailed builds. Add your rank in the TAB list like on other lobbies. Add your rank as a prefix in TAB list just like on Annihilation, SMASH, and in the lobby. Example: [O] Axyy Add new modes such as 2v2. Add new modes, yes. This would definitely attract players to DBV. 2v2 would work in party mode or using /duels. Both team mates have to complete the map before the other team does to win the duel. SLAUGHTER: Add party chat. I’d love a party chat, so you can just chat with everyone that’s in your party. Means other people can’t see your conversations and you do not have to PM every single party member. Change the lobby. Again a lobby change, I know. The current lobby looks fine, but is really big and yet there’s nothing to explore/discover. The lobby seems really empty. Add your rank in the TAB list like on other lobbies. Add your rank as a prefix in TAB list just like on Annihilation, SMASH, and in the lobby. Example: [O] Axyy GENERAL SUGGESTIONS: Add more balloons. Currently you can only get gender related balloons by default, which is totally fine. I don’t have anything against that. But still, other balloons should be added as well, for those who don’t want to have a general related balloon. I suggest to add country flags as balloons. Update the Forums! I feel like this one is really needed. The current forum seem to be outdated, while other big servers constantly update their forums, Shotbow doesn’t. The current forums doesn’t have a lot of features and does have a lot of bugs. I recommend Shotbow to upgrade to XenForo 2, since it has way more fun features than XenForo 1. Remove some hub-lobbies. Yes, remove some lobbies in the hub. There currently are three lobbies and each of them doesn’t have more than 12 players on it, why not remove one or two lobbies? It gives you more RAM to store somewhere else + it brings people closer to each other, so it feels more like a community. I mean 1 lobby server should be able to handle around 40 people right? - And if it doesn’t you can always set up a spare one. Give us more information. Back in the day we had, the weekly arrow, and development streams which I really loved. I was always looking forward to the next weekly arrow. At this moment we already get some information but why not bring back the weekly arrow or development streams? Especially with WiR BETAS. Give us the ability to change the in-game language. I’ve seen you recently opened up the Localization applications, so why not really expand the team and support in-game languages? People who are not so good in English could change it to their main language. Add a network-wide party system. I’ve wanted this for so long, a network-wide party system so your friends can join and they will automatically join the servers you join. Add a network-wide friends system. I would absolutely love this, you can see who of your friends are online and what server they are currently on. You can join them easily and play together.
