Classicube Demographic

Recommended Posts

          So this summer as a lot of people predicted, the classicube playerbase is taking a hit now that the kids are off for the summer and the pandemic is getting closer to an end. This is really heartbreaking to see, as popular servers such as New Bloods and others are starting to lose players. 

          I think what classicube really needs is to advertise in any realistic way to chromebook owners. Chromebooks are an affordable option for web computing, but they can't run real applications. With classicube's web support, minecraft for chromebook owners becomes a reality. And trust me, we all know this, but classicube needs chromebook kids to survive whether you like it or not. Chromebook kids bless us with player counts and god tier quotes. It used to be fun when you could play zombie survival with 20+ players, and introducing many newbies to the game. I don't know how expensive it is to advertise on facebook, youtube, and etc. but there's a market for chromebooks which means there's a market for classicube. We just need to find a way to unleash it's full potential. I hope the classicube owners, and some of the bigger servers on here could team up and find a way to work together to advertise more and get the word out. We are in a stage where if things don't turn around now, it'll die forever. Just my two cents, that's all.

Are you volunteering your own money to advertise with?

when school season comes again theyll all come running back, what id rather have is a stable community that doesnt depend on accounts being made only to be forgotten after a week

Yeah no not really.

Chromebooks are mainly for learning (afaik). Chromies need to learn anyways so why bother "advertising in a realistic way to chromebook owners". Oh, and aren't you the guy who had an NSFW skin?

Classicube will experience regular dips and hills in traffic due to the demographic that plays it (primarily schoolkids who play during the school year) and paid advertising won't reach those people during their off-season.

I make enough money off classicube to keep it running- not really enough to put any non-negligible effort into advertisements and the like. If you want classicube to grow, you need to tell your friends, and tell them to tell people. Paid advertisements can only do so much on their own.

 

Edit: as an addendum, just so you're aware, around 0% of the direct revenue comes from chromebook players. they usually don't have an income and thus can't contribute to the patreon, and don't have a steam account and thus can't purchase the game on steam. they may lead indirect revenue by virtue of increasing the playerbase and visibility, but directly they barely, if at all, contribute.

Is having less chromies really a bad thing? I personally think ClassiCube is doing fine right now. And I think there's more good stuff coming for it on the horizon.

There are enough "die-hard" people around these ends to prevent it from dying. As already mentioned, it probably is best if we don't become overly reliant on school children to boost the player base and can *sometimes* act as a false sense of security with their unreliability. I guess, and merely hypothesising here, some sort of referral program could help out with the people-telling-friends-and-friends-telling people idea. That being said, I think we get a healthy number of players already.

Classicube has (somehow thankfully) survived for a very long time now, even years after the original MC Classic server list shut down. Why do we all of the sudden need Chromebook advertisements and such to keep the game alive? As Toby said, there's tons of diehards who have been playing the game (and played the original Classic) for a very, very long time, and I doubt the game will die due to a lack of Chromebook users any time soon.

Funny hearing that from the one who went on other servers to call me a fat whore behind my back because I took administrative action against you. How amusing that people simply disagreeing with your idea makes you scream victim.

This thread is very quickly turning into a witch hunt solely for the purpose of arguing. I don't see any harm in possibly putting together a gofundme page or patreon specifically dedicated to advertisements (I know some exist for CC already - I'm referring to a separate account solely for adverts)... but like others have said - I don't know how necessary that is for a game that's survived far worse drops in playerbase. If we could keep the threads on topic a bit better, we will all save ourselves some unnecessary headaches.
