To whom this may concern,
 
In recent times I've heard a lot of the stories of Clone Wars RP, and a lot of people making passing comments about wanting it back, saying something about "The good old days" or "Remembering their start on the Server", players such as Siege Monkey and Luigi, current admins can even atest to the enjoyment of Clone Wars and the type of person it brought to the community under Management and Bailey's (because he wasn't technically Management) leadership and direction for the Server as a whole. It was somewhere you didn't have to be the bad guy, you didn't have to oppress civilians, you could show up and be the saviour of the Wookiees or be the one to protect the innocents rather than persecute them. I am aware that the Community loves being a bad guy (In RP of course) and that's why Imperial RP has done so well for as long as it has (it'll be four years old this year!), but I'm also aware the community really loves being the good guy as well, in and out of character, all of our donations to charities, all of the good we try and do within the community, all the acceptance and posts about mental health on the forums, IG likes being the good guy.
 
So, I think, and so do many others (who hopefully will show up to this post and help speak about how good Clone Wars was) that we should bring back the Clone Wars Server, now many people may disagree with this, our previous Servers have failed, Santos died twice, Clone Wars lasted nearly half a year and then died. People may think we should go a different direction, like HaloRP for example or something similar, but our community is a Star Wars Community, look at Icefuse for example, they have 3 Star Wars RP Servers that are nearly consistently full because their community is filled with people who love Star Wars, they started small, and then grew and grew until they turned into the massive monolith they are today. Clone Wars is the way forward for our community, and if we do well, we can grow again, taking it slowly over and over again, branching out into similar avenues.
 
Some reasons I think Clone Wars can come back now and be extremely successful are as follows;
- The Seventh Season of Clone Wars has come back recently and has a lot of hype around it, with another 4 episodes (4 weeks) to go with a lot more ACTUAL Clone action to come, this will help hype up the Server as the Season comes to an end and we hopefully see Order 66.
- The Server has consistently been hitting maximum players (even before the COVID-19 lockdown), enough players that Tank wanted to create a second overflow Server to deal with the players and the huge demand for Star Wars RP in and out of our current community. During this prototype, Tank also set up inter-server chat which would allow both sides of the community to chat and get to know each other (which was a small problem for Clone Wars since it seemed like there was two parts of the community when it closed and we all came back to Imperial RP).
- We are getting a new Server, which according to Kumo is 4x better than our current one, on a superior operating system and with superior specs, especially ones based around hosting Servers and Garry's Mod in particular. This means it should be able to easily host Imperial RP and Clone Wars RP at the exact same time.
- We have experience with Clone Wars RP and Star Wars RP in particular, with it being our second iteration of Clone Wars we'll have learnt from our mistakes and can adjust the direction of the Server based on community feedback from last time and having learnt from the mistakes made prior to the closure of the Server.
- Many of our current Staff, particularly two of our current Admins arose from Clone Wars and/or came into their own as a Clone Wars Staff Member, on top of this, it brought many members to the community who weren't previously apart of it, there's too many to name for this post alone, so I won't bother with it to save you from it.
- Clone Wars is far more malleable than ImperialRP, we were able to go to different maps and enjoy ourselves there because there was a reason for our group to go there
- We have almost perfected the battalion system, and we had previously perfected the Regiment system with supports and heavies, in regards to Clone Wars, for example within the 212th, we could have roles similar to support and heavy, but they could be Airborne and specialised ARF Troopers, this is obviously only a rough draft and just examples for the future.
- We are able to easily pick out content, so we don't need to overfill the Server with content that all serves the same purpose, it will help us cut down by carefully picking and choosing content that goes on the Server to prevent it from being overfilled and stacked with content that isn't necessary.
 
That's all I've got, I hope many of you agree with me and we can get this message to Management, showing them how many of us want Clone Wars back desperately. Lastly, this post was approved by Cecil and Wingza who I went to prior to writing the post because I know Clone Wars is a touchy subject for many members of the Community.
 
Thank you for reading, please, if you respond to this and disagree with the post, please explain why, don't just leave a "-1 dumb" post, I really want to know why you don't think this is a good idea. If you agree with me, please share a fond memory of Clone Wars, or something you'd like to see on the new Clone Wars, as well as some reasons that I may have missed as to why Clone Wars is worth trying again.
 
Below this and within the spoiler are some images from Clone Wars, feel free to share your own.

Kind regards,

I miss Clone Wars RP, the comradery of it, all the boys together and the memories that came from it, we weren't 100% serious all the time, but we liked our SeriousRP when we needed to be serious, but we relaxed when we needed to. It was one of my favourite times in Garry's Mod, period. We've seen #CloneWarsSaved, but now I want #IGCloneWarsSaved, we can make it better than what it was, I know we can.

Can we please bring back Santos rp

Tried it two times and both were unsuccessful, even though as much as I would like to see it's return I think it's time to try something else that being Clone Wars. If it's well planned and has a dedicated staff team and commander's behind it I don't see why it wouldn't work. 

Yes Clone Wars 2.0 sign me up +1

For sure, I miss clone wars heaps! I literally watched some old videos from it today and it would be amazing to have it back. I'd like to hear Managements opinion on the matter to see where their heads at.

Clone wars was hella fun, but had a poor start to begin with, people who didn't wanna play on it applying for commander and 2ic spots and then going inactive, people who got high roles wanting to keep their roles on imperial so they stopped playing which stopped some regiments from doing anything.

Hope to see it return.

I believe clone wars is well worth another go, It was an experience I amongst many other thoroughly enjoyed playing for large periods of time daily. Something about the Clone wars era is so appealing and it felt like a fun ride everyday even though I did spend most my days running events it was still fun to Patrol the base it just had a different feeling to it, its hard to describe. The server was just forgotten about and deserves another look at as it has potential and so many lads disappeared because they weren't a fan of Imperial which is fair its not everyone cup of tea. I reckon if done correctly and updated, reworked etc and with a better management team it could truly work. Every time I end up in a conversation about CW I often look back and regret letting it shut down as I enjoyed it a lot and it was a good creative outlet for me and was an extremely enjoyable role play experience. If people who truly care about the health and well being of the server and making sure fixes etc are rolling out asap  are in positions of power this time around, I believe it could be much better than last time. I would definitely be playing on it if it were to come back again (Id still play Imperial as well I also really really like Imperial). Please do consider bringing it back, Santos got another shot I believe CW should as well. Last time CW didn't have the right management team behind it (No offence to them, They are both great people who I like to vibe with) but they just didn't work as hard as they could of, So if clone wars were to see a shot at redemption put a good strong team behind it that should allow it to thrive. The Roleplay aspect of CW is definitely a very enjoyable experience, Fighting for the Republic and the Jedi Order and working to eliminate the CIS from some mischievous attack on the base/ship was just more appealing to me personally thats one of the reasons I really enjoyed it. With brand new content and the Hype of Season 7 I think CW has a fighting chance to be a stable server. Thank you Khronos for making this post.

Clone wars was one of the best experiences I had it’s one of the reasons I came back during the time it was up. It wasn’t to serious and chill, during the time it was fun and enjoyable even tho the server was having low population. It was pretty fun joining RSC while Kurt was the commander of it(even though I was a shitty pilot and crashed into about everything.)

The idea is good on paper but in practice there are many things we got to take in to the equation. Theres is a reason that not many new severs that stay around for long and is it really worth to spend money with that uncertainty

There’s not much money to spend in my opinion, the models are there, the server is bought already, it’s just a time sink. If you have any purchases that I’ve missed that we’ll need to buy, be sure to let me know, but personally I don’t think there’s that much to actually buy.

Like any server there would have to be an already solid foundation for the server to come up smoothly and without any hiccups; a sizeable staff team willing to dedicate time to it, picked out (or applied) CO's for all the regiments and a dedicated playerbase for the server to actually be functional. It's all well and good to want to bring it back because people have such fond memories of the past experiences they may have had but you can't legitimately promise that the server will be kept up, like it or not the server may split the playerbase, users who have current long standing ranks on Imperial RP may not want to give that up for a shot at a weeks worth as an ARC trooper or a Jedi.

Icefuse is only popular because its a long standing community and its American, they expanded quickly and at the right time to multiple platforms, while IG is only Australian and has to work with the resources they have at their disposal, re-opening clonewars may be an excellent idea on the outside but may cause more problems for the community and management to deal with. And yes while IG management/staff may have the space for it, do they have the time and overall effort it will take to make this server happen and run smoothly.

I agree with all of this. The server was fun to join on and play events its a lot more fun then imperial in some points. I feel the first one was brought down due to bugs and issues with how the server was handled I believe it needs a second chance. Especially if it can bring some load off the main server.

And how it somehow also crashed the imperial server? Remember off ships were canceled. Def-con stopped working was a mess. Also the whole thing with Marlu special op thing getting canceled due to ARC

That’s why the new dedicated server is a good time to get it back up and running, it’s 4x better than our current one and should be able to hold both Servers easily.

Yea why its the perfect time to do it and work on it. The amount of people with the April fools going bruh clone wars even in lego sign me up. I feel like the big ventor map would be a good map as well haven't played on it in ages but was a really optimized map

I'm not sure why anyone would shun the idea of Clone Wars, the only thing it costs is time, we have the models, we have the server and we have most of the people, it quite literally wouldn't cost a cent.
