Before we get into the suggestions, I would like to take a moment to explain the Roman Server Syndrome (RSS). This is a case effect, much like the Roman empire, where the server in question begins to decline in popularity and attendance due to its stagnant nature, stretching its resources too thin, lack of social media (ie semi-popular Youtubers), or unwillingness to change. Many players are also likely to leave due to "pay to play" standards set by donor players. To reverse RSS, one will have to dedicate a lot of time, effort, and creativity into different methods of revitalization. One system might be something as simple as attracting Youtubers or have players tag the server whenever they're recording themselves playing. This is a form a free advertisement that anyone could profit off of. The next idea might be to expand the number or variety of minigames offered on the server (I get that a lot of you like SG all the time, but I personally despise with a passion). Adding in new games that test parkour abilities, use new items added to Minecraft, or even bloodbath coliseums against bosses and mob waves will surely entertain any type of player. Regulation might also drum up a bit of interest. If certain towns have gone out of their way to have some specializations (ie arenas, mass farms, or casinos), why not regulate the larger ones by sponsoring tournaments, linking farms to the sponsored events (like giving them special vendor perms to sell at the games), and oversee that casino odds meet a certain chance percentage. If all these options fail, it might be time to cull the server. While this might seem drastic, this option will help eliminate the dead clutter of inactive, if not gone, players who once ruled over the server. This option should be used as a nearly last effort. If all these options fail, this means that RSS has set in too far and it's time to say farewell to a once great world. As sad as this is, it tends to be the fate of most. Let's change the fate of ECC. Let's beat RSS. Let's make it rain again!
