    Recently I've been thinking about player retention on Brawl. From the numbers I've seen players don't seem to stick around much as we get a lot of new players but the player count barely rises.

    I've been trying to think of what the reason for this is, and I think I've got somewhat of an idea. Back when I just played War I never played CTF because I couldn't be bothered to learn the game and it was confusing to me, I feel this hasn't changed a lot.

    Of course, the developer work on this server is limited. So I figured to use our Wiki a bit more. instead of just the automatic global message in lime green that links to you to the website (which to be honest, how many people actually see that/click on it, I only ever paid attention to it when I did broadcast messages myself)

    So instead of this, force the players to pick the option whether they want to see the tutorial or not. When they join. freeze their character and ask them whether they would like to learn a bit more about the game mode linking them to the wiki page, an easy yes or no question will either help them understand the game or if they are for example and alt can easily just click no and go on with playing the game.

    for example.
    *Message on their screen*
    Welcome to CTF would like to learn a bit more about the game mode, click the link in the chat.
    yes or no option in the chat.
    when clicking yes open the link to the wiki (or maybe let someone make a video as these are often more attracting)
    or when clicking no.
    give them the link in chat with the message if you ever want to read over the tutorial do /tutorial or go the wiki page on our forums.
