I know that a lot of veterans will agree with me, we all have our high level mains, we all have more +3 than we actually need, so what I want to suggest is this.

Give even more to new players to stay at c-rpg.


Right now they all get 1 shitty armour (mailed tunic), a mediocre 1h, a mediocre 2h, and a shitty polearm

I propose the below.

1. Their first character should be instantly level 30
2. Instead of giving them all those shitty gear, give them 12 Loompoints (non tradeable if possible), leave it to them to upgrade their own gear.
With 12 points they can make 4 items +3, makes it fair

Ill open a poll for a week.

Wipe the database, then everyone starts at 0 and new players have a reason to stick around.

It's a good idea to try and get more players, but i fear in the current state the only way we're going to get new players to stay is by actually bribing them. Insert Greece joke

I think making them start at lvl 30 is a good idea. They will still experience the peasant grind when they retire anyways.

If this is doable, make sure that new players gets a message or a warning window like ''visit the forum before spending anything'' or at least ''read the solid builds thread'' when they log in. Otherwise they will fuck up badly and leave the game at the end. I remember my first build having 22 strength for no reason.

Let‘s just give everyone a lvl 35 char and 100 +3 items so the basic game concept is completely removed! ye sounds great! Or wipe everything people played for ages. (Ages they spent because it was sooo easy and not because they loved grinding their gear!!!)


And it‘s not like new players right now are forced to join clans with armourys and are bound to the game by other players which absolutely does not encourage old and new players to play!!

And grinding +3s is sooo fucking hard cant we double the xp once again so the x1 from the beginning will be x6? Id love that!!! Absolutely adds some difficulty to the game!

i thought about it, but to be honest it could be more unfriendly for new players, because of mad grind ppl how are playing all the time, they will go for an easiest way to get fast levels near 30+ leaving other weekend players far behind not to mention about invidual skills, just for math it could be very bad but starting peasant wars would be fun also  :lol:

At this point I agree with giving new players more to get started for sure, but mod is ded so who knows if it will change anything.

 Wiping isn't going to do anything to attract new players because by the time new players even come here in any noticeable numbers, the last people playing would have either rage quitted because they cant be bothered to grind again or the remaining no life nerds will have grinded a bunch of looms and gold again. But mod is ded. DTV is the only populated server and I don't think gear really matters there anyway lol.
