I think perhaps we should consider repopulating Hero Games and from my experience these last 2 nights, I think all the participants found it fun as long as we keep to some basic rules which I wish to propose.
Firstly, do not wait for others to call for queues. Anyone can request and ask other players to queue for hero games. Call out in COPvP or main. Ask players who are duelling in RenCen all the time to queue up for HG.
Name the specific HG you want people to queue for. Do one at a time because we may not have enough queuing for more than 1 HG at a time.
No hunting/farming of squishies or ATs (avoid targetting them, collateral damage OTH is inevitable if they do not know how to avoid).
No trash/smack talking before, during or after the game whether you win or lose. End all games with a GG.
UTC - Sometimes the draw of the straw does not give balance, self-moderate so that if a team is too weak one player from the stronger team can hold back.
KotH - Do not take the hill until both sides have more or less even number of people loaded in. This can be done by waiting at the entrance of the dome. Just need someone to coordinate when to start the fight.
ZA - if zombie is too weak, 1 or 2 other person may choose to switch over.
Stronghold - do not kill both bosses too fast so that more fighting can take place
BASH - rather than trying to get the most number of kills in the shortest time, always go after the top 2 on the chart (when there are more people of course). Do not gank for personal reasons/vendettas.
Do not request people to keep queuing the same HG, switch around for variety. Different players and toons may excel better at different games.
If the bug kicks you out, just keep re-queuing and try again. If you just can't get in, wait for the next game.
Remember, the acclaims are hardly useful. Might as well let the game be fun for everyone.
I keep seeing people (quite a few have clearly dedicated PvP builds) duelling but these people do not queue for HG. Let's make HG appealing for more people since the devs will not. Also, personal ego, SG wars (ganking) do not help make PvP fun so please check those at the door before entering the game.
Please feel free to contribute any other possible self-moderation which can be implemented.
