ZH Community Unification

# 1OoE-ExCaL^ Jan 21 2022, 12:27 PM
The recent topic(s) regarding patch direction has been interesting in terms of ideas and communication, but has also shown conflict in opinion which got me thinking about the fragmentation in ZH as something we should actively try to reduce. IMO, we could even nominate people from the community who actively work on events to actually bring different parts of the community together.
The inevitable scattering of players across radmin/gameranger/revora I think is a bit unavoidable at the moment.

Firstly, I will list what I see as the biggest communities we have:
- Gamereplays
- Russian Community (do many events and also did Moscow Lan)
- Legi and iShock (did iShock lan - looked amazing)
- Domi
- Iranian Community
- Gameranger (twilight flame has a big community/nomoney/ casino etc)
- Modded community

Ideas to unite the community more:
- Have one clanwars/ladder
- One platform/discord where whole ZH community events are communicated
- A nominated spokesperson/messenger for communities that struggle in English (Russian/Iranian/others)
- A reach out to Gameranger community as I often find they have no clue about events that are going on


A simple idea to have a team of guys who are literally spokepersons/committee for different communities would honestly help a lot imo. Just some thoughts on unification. Let me know yours below.

You need more $$$?

Honestly speaking good idea.

If I see that next big tourney I see so many new members on Gr which is good.

Think simply a working committee across communities would be a nice start.

Some accepted personalities like Rengo you mean^^.

That's a good idea, maybe someone has someone to nominate.

Off top of my head -

Someone from gamereplays
Sonic or someone for Russia
Marakar for arabic and mods
Davey/legi
Domi
Need someone to tap into gameranger community - alot of players there that simply don't know whats going on

One idea I had for long time is to build a new Clanwars website.

Throw a tonne of money into it and make it the most eye catching, appealing, best design ever. Something like how encores ranking system graphics used to look.

Copy all the same functionality as cw.cc but make improvements where needed, make it ddos proof, easier to use, report losses in an instant.

I believe it would be big boost.

PHP developer would need to make it

Excellent idea. Seems a no brainer - this is where we could even do a fundraiser for it. Legi recently did a charity stream and it really took off for a good cause.

I am sure if me - you - legi - bl9rTV and anyone else did a fundraiser for it , community would really support it.

Well.

Speaking from a GameReplays point of view, we are always open for mutually beneficial collaborations & have also done them in the past with both the WB Community & iShock.

As a matter of fact, there's something more in the offing with Instant Shock, but I can't reveal much as it's not in advanced stages of planning.

There was a similar thought in the Russian community. Perhaps we can join forces

There's a big arab community that I've been in contact with as well, who play online mostly on radmin and follow closely behind GameReplay's events mainly concentrated around General Mustafa's Channel and his friends, I've had multiple attempts in inviting them in but most of them fear the skill gap and language limitations

Actually, it just slipped my mind but the Zero Hour Anniversary event we did. We collaborated with 8 Mod Communities if I remember correctly & it was a great success.

That is amazing, would be great for gamereplays to involve these communities more. Half the time I think its language barrier hence my idea of a committee to include people to gamereplays.

Perhaps their should be some sub forums for those who struggle to speak english? Or perhaps a translator for arabic russian etc so staff doesn't remove what they are trying to say?

As far as I am aware the division is most apparent in Game Networks. GameRanger, Radmin, CNC Online.

I see only chance to consolidate this: Build new Network + Backend (Multiplayer Lobby with Stats and Quickmatch) that is superior to GameRanger, Radmin and CNC Online.

General Mustafa is a good buddy of mine, there are 2 things for them I've noticed. One thing is as mentioned, the skill gap.
Secondly, most of them use a modified version of ZH, so it's not compatible with the rest of the world, there is another Arab YouTuber, whom General Mustafa does often collab and play with, RTS Games, has nearly 50k following.
As far as I know, he's quite a leader for the single player Arab community (as well as General Mustafa now) and he's the one that modified ZH, he compiles ZH + mods into separate folders to make it easy for the noobs, so they literally download the folder and play.
