I wonder on what you base your analysis.

December 09, 2017 04:04PM
I think it's really hard to evaluate... but what I know is, just because people eventualy dies, CF will die earlier if it counts on vets more than newbies.

My point is: Make CF less complicated to favor new players retention. Instead of relying on personal knowledge of the game (preps, gear knowledge and game mechanics) to be powerful, make CFers rely on grouping with others players to do so; it's much more fun! And anyway, vets will always have an edge in PK from their area knowledge.

I wouldn't be surprised to learn that the majority of the good pkers are newbies from a time when CF was less complicated to learn.

Because PK is such a big part of the game, the more complicated CF is, the longer it takes for newbie to:
a) just survive PK (wich is, I agree, not too long to learn)
b) be able to kill another player without counting mainly on pure luck.

I might be wrong but I suppose that a lot of newcomers left CF because after seeing all the preps, piece of gear, areas, hidden secret passages, etc they realize the amount of knowledge necessary (understand 'time sinking') to be able to compete (and not just always be pawned by) by players like Glik or Barkrmar.

It takes a lot of time just to become a decent pker not relying on pure luck. Having to compete with players almost unkillable and who can kill you in nearly 3 rounds because of their knowledge is, I think, a serious drawback. And if they have to spend more time retrieving basics preps/gear because SuperPowerfulPlayer is full looting them just for the fun of it, no wonder why newbies go look for something more interesting to do with their time... but I might be getting out of topic here. ;)

Crazy Idea for increasing interest and playerbase

ellokraine December 08, 2017 07:38PM

I'd re-craft some of my old areas from memory quite happily to support CF. (n/t)

The Faithful of Nazmorghul December 27, 2017 03:10AM

Well, I found this...

(vಠ_ಠ)> AngryFatKid December 13, 2017 03:00PM

Hey bub! Where ya been?! :) (n/t)

Frosty December 13, 2017 03:49PM

Got married, got divorced, moved, got married again, changed jobs...

(vಠ_ಠ)> AngryFatKid December 13, 2017 05:48PM

Damn, life's a bitch sometimes. Keep your head up man. Best of luck to ya. ;) (n/t)

Frosty December 13, 2017 06:03PM

Nah, it hasn't been as bad as it seems at first.

(vಠ_ಠ)> AngryFatKid December 13, 2017 06:07PM

Well, you're not going to find it here. ;) (n/t)

saagkri December 13, 2017 08:23PM

Of the many things I could be convinced to write for CF, an area is not on that list... (n/t)

laearrist December 10, 2017 03:52AM

Noone needs new areas

Kstatida December 09, 2017 08:44PM

Imho we have plenty of areas

Tadam December 08, 2017 10:43PM

I think we all agree...

ellokraine December 09, 2017 06:13PM

A demonstration of why "New is not necessary Better"

frob December 09, 2017 11:13AM

I know this is a bit tardy, but welcome to CF, Frob! (n/t)

DurNominator December 23, 2017 11:23AM

Vets are more likely that newbies to keep playing CF.

saagkri December 09, 2017 12:34PM

Vets have limited numbers

DurNominator December 23, 2017 11:13AM

I wonder on what you base your analysis.

frob December 09, 2017 04:04PM

Re: I wonder on what you base your analysis.

saagkri December 09, 2017 04:31PM

Here's the deal

Dalbrin December 10, 2017 11:21AM

I don't know if you've played many shifters...

saagkri December 10, 2017 01:13PM

I've played more shifters then anything.

Dalbrin December 10, 2017 01:34PM

Ditto

PacMan December 10, 2017 01:53PM

Agree with the no cost spin/roll, but...

saagkri December 10, 2017 03:06PM

Free I think would be too much. Halving the edge costs for them makes sense to me. (n/t)

Frosty December 10, 2017 05:10PM

Too much? Heaven forbid you get to hero and spin a second crappy form and have enough EPs for muscle memory and calmed mind. You're right, that's overpowered. (n/t)

saagkri December 10, 2017 07:35PM

Can you only take it once? nt

MiyagiYojimbo December 10, 2017 08:42PM

Yes. And, I like the picture. Wait, I'm the leaf? Why?! (n/t)

saagkri December 10, 2017 08:48PM

MiyagiYojimbo December 10, 2017 09:15PM

Oh, nice. :) (n/t)

saagkri December 11, 2017 03:45PM

Cry a little more. (n/t)

Frosty December 10, 2017 08:01PM

YOU cry a little more. Anyway, I agreed with you. It's overpowered. Didn't you see that? (n/t)

saagkri December 10, 2017 08:16PM

Nononono that "I was being sarcastic but I wasn't being sarcstic" bullshit doesn't work on me.

Frosty December 10, 2017 08:52PM

You're too quick for me. Clearly I'm out of my league. (n/t)

saagkri December 10, 2017 11:05PM

They should put in some no cap goodness for other alignments too.

MiyagiYojimbo December 10, 2017 11:36AM

Re: I wonder on what you base your analysis.

PacMan December 10, 2017 11:07AM

Anyway, why would someone play fewer than three? That's how you max EXP when you're ranking them together. (n/t)

saagkri December 10, 2017 07:38PM

You can't prove that. (n/t)

saagkri December 10, 2017 01:07PM

I've got good new on one of those items... If you log, contact me!

laearrist December 10, 2017 03:40AM

What's the purpose of you being a stupid fuck?

Re: :( Sawwry

frob December 10, 2017 10:24AM

Agreed. We need older players. Not newer. Fuck kids. (n/t)

Matrik December 09, 2017 12:52PM

I never pictured you to be the "throw in the towel" type (n/t)

PacMan December 08, 2017 11:05PM

I personally don't, but that's a relatively small pool (n/t)

Tadam December 09, 2017 12:38PM

It’ll never work.
