Hail: They said they would target to get players to return to the game, and add new players. So, just how should this be done? What can they offer? A new or upgraded client will not bring players back, =3d failed, KR failed, SA=? New housing area's will also not work, because all the current players will grab up the best, and largest spots. Also, how do you get a new player who has 1000 gold, to have any chance of doing anything when every other player has millions of gold? Even starting a new shard has major drawbacks, as scripters go there first, and all the housing spots that are good, or large area's are gone in a day. If you offer them something, then the current player can say, "Hey, no fair, i played everyday and got nothing, and the quitters got rewarded"? The no charater transfers, or advance charaters on a new shard also does not work, as scripters of skills will be 7x gm in a week, and a real new player will be adept in a few skills at best. Here are some of my ideas. 1. NO Free accounts. No free trials. 2. A 30 day game time code sold seperatly, so you could try it out without a visa card. But, still had to pay for it. 3. A New shard. yea yea we have to many already, but would you play a expansion of a current game and start at level 1, when everyone else is level 90-100? 4. And my biggest/boldest move at all.........................hehe, EA would place all the houses on the shard. Castles/Keeps, 18x18, 15x12, and so on. Every house would be, "Owned by EA". After a certain point in time, they would all go IDOC at the same time, and you could NOT place a house at all, if you owned any house on any other shard. Here is why. It gives everyone a chance to get the gold to buy a house. It ensures that there are houses for them when they do so. It stops Current players from grabbing the biggest/best spots on the first day or 2, and then selling it for a big profit. And even if they wanted to, they would have to sell of transfer their main house on their current server first, and even then, AS THERE IS NO FREE TRIALS, would have to pay $ to do so. Thats all for now. Your Idea's? The object is to grow the game, and increase the player base, and, imhop, Housing is one of the biggest selling points of this game.
