"Let's make NU/UU great (again?)" - prizes in NU/UU ranked at the end of each month

Question

Hello people,

As a PvP player, I noticed that tiers NU and UU are often forgotten (apart from the rare tournaments with shiny prizes and cc's, as long as they are organised when the community is very present) and players usually prefer play OU, because it's the majority tier.
Also, my suggestion is to motivate PvP players and orient themselves towards NU/UU through the ranked : I imagine a kind of league for these tiers where, at the end of each month, the first 5 players of the ladder (for example) would receive a reward appropriate to their prowess (like in tournaments).
I think this would be of interest to many people and would also encourage OU players to take an interest in other tiers.

 

I hope you will appreciate my suggestion :)

Remember guys, aside from liking the post- UPVOTE it! :)

 

As a UU player I would also love to see some more UU tournaments and general love for the tier. I think in September we had one or two official UUs. Any suggestion towards improving that situation is precious.

In my opinion UU is also a great pvp tier like OU and it is more than frustating to see that UU gets no love.

I think the most players play OU cuz they see just strong poke like dragonite, ttyar and so on.

Or the people see their fav poke in OU and automatically UU/NU are dead for them.

This is how i see this topic.

To improve the motivation of people to play UU/NU, they need something what makes UU/NU more attractive like @TheBeldumMaster (rewards) said.

Until now i have more than 3.5k hours of playtime and i participated at/in 4 UU ranked matches. (I`m sure that i missed a lot of UU ranked matches...)

4 is more than I ever managed to get, I have a wooping total of 1 NU ranked match, if I'm not mistaked, and I used to queue near daily.

liked and upvoted.

 

and why only rankeds rewards? why not a little boost in BP's for unranked/normal PVP UU/NU?

This is a great idea. World of Warcraft incorporates a similar thing - it gives bonus loot to the Tank/Healer roles in dungeons in order to entice people to queue as those specs, as DPS is generally the spec that most people prefer to play. I think this could work very well with UU and NU matchmaking here

This would be pretty cool honestly; I haven't gotten into any tiers in PokeMMO in the past, but I could see it being really fun to include some of the lesser seen tiers, and some kind of prize payout for x amount of players per "season" would only provide more incentive for players to participate.

Well, staff :

This is the current tier list and usage statistic that you can find here.

As you can see, the OU dominate the other tiers with 58214 teams used (97.2%) against 998 for UU (1.7%) and 668 for NU (1.1%).
NU and UU are litteraly dying, in a month we have only two NU torunaments and this saturday we will have 2 OU tournaments. I'm getting bored with this game. I don't blame anyone for this, but please, do something to increase the number of NU and UU matchmaking.

I really hope that you will read this post :)

 

PS : as doc PBJ said in this thread, we often forget the doubles. It would be cool to see this tier rebirth too.

Make monthly prizes for all tiers' ladders too. It's a shame we don't have any rewards atm except for BPs in individual matches.

Well, no NU tour (except CCs) until the end of the year. Some ppl already did this suggestion in the past but i feel like even if we would have 3000 upvotes this doesn't mattered. They are probably too busy by working on HAs to care about useless things like suggestions. :)

I'd love to be able to use UU/NU matchmaking, as stated above NU's and UU's are dead, no1 queue beacuse everyone plays OU's for whatever reason. Increased BP and monthly rewards might attract some more people.

 

Edit: Btw i quit game like 2,5 years~ before and one of the reasons was i was forced to play OU matchmaking beacuse UU/NU never worked (either didnt work or people didnt queue up). a few weeks ago started to play again and the problem still there. I'm not saying adding extra BP or monthly prizes will surely do trick -maybe dont- but i just cant believe devs not trying to make UU/NU playable again, all i see in past 2 weeks how prices and shinies should be fixed, it sounds like economymmo to my ears and i m not happy with this, beacuse i really really like being here. I like breeding, shiny hunting, BP farming as much as i like to do PvP.
