And it continues ...



As we all rejoice in the increase in population, the size of Genesis remain fixed (with the honourable exception of the Ghastly Keep). I cannot help but wonder; what measures are taken to counter a hypothetical population of 150, or even 200?

Thoughts, administrators?

Counter or accommodate?

If it's the latter. Maybe stuff like?
Boost drop tables
Decrease respawn times NPCs and herbs
Speed up quest reset times
Increase size of blacksmith forges

Wonder how many can be online before smoke starts pouring out of the gizmo.

Perhaps there could be a sensus of sorts in game?

A way to be able to understand what parts of the game frustrate the new players the most.
How they would like to spend their time in the realms but find that they are unable to do that due to X?

What is the mindset of the group of 3-4 all alluring female elves that always seem to hang around Sparkle - do they go out to hunt the orc camps in a group and if so do they often find themselves being assaulted by ogres?

Perhaps we know all this already...

The last time we saw player numbers of 100+ the game had much less content than it does today. The game was fun then, and will not be less fun now when we have so many new areas that didn't exist to support the large populations of the old days.

New areas are great - and we will create more of them. But, this is not a huge problem.

Erh..
So many new areas that support the large populations?
We don't even have enough grinders to support more than 2 grind teams(of 2-3 people) for myths.
Are you really this out of touch with things?

Let's look, shall we?
Code:
Novice               2
Greenhorne           1
Beginner             2
Apprentice           5
Wanderer             6
Adventurer           3
Adept                1
Great adventurer     2
Veteran              2
Expert               1
Rising hero          3
Hero                 2
Titan                3
Champion             2
Legend               4
Myth                 4
Average stat level of all mortals = Expert.


As I type, this is the strata of players currently logged on (above.)

The needs of the game are not centered around tired old myths looking for places to grind anymore, Amberlee. Most of our players - by a large division - are now small to midrange. The game supports them just fine.

Groaning about the dreadful competition between four myths - Are you really this out of touch with things? ;-)

Gorboth - 1
Amberlee - 0

Points on both sides, but have to give credit on this one.

I am actually not.
You hide behind the numbers of the Sparkle Church Mafia though, and even at that level they compete hard for hunting grounds.
I play this game on a day to day basis and know exactly how crowded things can get.
You are around now and then and look at statistic and then say "This is a statistic." nod your head and then you are satisfied.

I see Gorboth online all the time.
He can look in on whatever he wants whenever he wants.
I'm sure he's not relying on numbers alone.
