I have to agree :P If people want to powerplay we dont have enough areas, and not to many are interested in anything else :P

If they want to powerplay, and we dont have enough areas, they will leave again.

Self-solving problem.


Of course, would annoy older players that also enjoy powerplay for a while.

This game is more enjoyable the more people there are to interact with, befriend, and grate against. The best thing that could happen would be an explosion of players.

Agreed. Best part about the game.

I suspect we can scale up towards 200 active players by adjusting spawn rates.
After that we'll likely have to rapidly create more areas or move towards instancing which has some bad RP drawbacks.

That people are _worried_ that we are getting too many players is something I see as very good news.:)

More players also hopefully means more wizards who can code more content!

But I do think we could support at least 100 with the current setup? Yes, there will be more competition for the best XP areas, but there are plenty of areas that are under-used for various reasons. Some are "too dangerous", other's are simply harder to script, and some are of course less rewarding, but might be considered more rewarding if there's too much competition in the best areas.

And there's still some ways to go to those 200 that Cotillion see as being somewhere around the ultimate limit by tweaking current content. Once we get there I have a feeling there will also have been more areas created and/or expanded along the way.

So I think we should definitely try to list Genesis in as many places as possible. Too bas Steam isn't realistic. I don't have that much experience with it so I wouldn't really know how it works to submit things there.

Please never make instances. Ever. Its completely out of the spirit of Genesis. I understand the need for it in the newbie area but it does not belong in the main portion of the game.
