    Default New Players and Darkfall

    There has been a recent steady increase in new player registrations to Darkfall and this has inspired our latest spotlight article:

    There's a post by a new player we'd like to point out to you, it's a good read for players new and old.

    We also received a spotlight suggestion about a clan called "NEW" designed to help out new players. While we'll usually not spotlight clans, this initiative seems to transcend clan politics and is geared towards helping new players find their way in Darkfall.

    Too bad there's several guilds who have already "dedicated" themselves to griefing anyone with the NEW clan tag off of the planet on NA-1 for being "too carebear". It's amusing that even being new to a game is considered carebear now.

    Congratulations "hardcore" playerbase, you've hit an all new low.

    I should have known it would only be a matter of time till we had a "NEW" clan

    In UO there's a server that's almost full loot and open pvp. There's a NEW clan on that server and it is generally considered bad form to pk people in NEW. The idea is to help people get the hang of the server gradually rather than being wtf pwnd constantly right off the bat.

    We need newbie protection.

    This can be done by:

    A) Hard coded limits

    B) Real incentives for old players to protect new players

    Thank you

    NEW deserve this spotlight.

    Good luck!

    Ah nice to see my post on here.

    I guess the best advice is this. Trust is something in this game that must be earned, never assumed!

    Very nice Idea, we should think about it on the EU Server as well.

    Nothing good happens from hard coding additional rules. Nothing.


    Also, I TOLD you guys that the game wasn't in a "death spiral" and that new players were joining. But no, if I tell you 10 new people joined my clan last week, I clearly had to be making shit up

    Great initiative guys, these are the kind of sandbox events that I had been hoping people would start doing instead of pretending the game was a quake server and then complaining about how there was no roleplaying

    B is the way to go.
    This game is about FREEDOM.

    Freedom to let the players do whatever they want, so if they want newbie-freezones.. so be it. If they want some roman empire where they uphold the law.. so be it. :P
