    So, I went over to his place, having dropped 100k beforehand in Red Moon. Guided him through registration/installation/character creation whatevs, dude chose ork, we cool. Told him to travel to Red Moon for the 100k, taught him the basics, gave him a link to the wiki map with portals and stuff.

    All in all, got him set up, got him some gear, told about tasks and quests and whatnot. Dude plays for a few hours, then refuses to log in again. I ask why and here are his main complaints:

    Dead world at starter areas/NPC cities/main roads.

    Hardly anyone talking in global chat.

    No new players joining, with only, as he put it 'sad vets sitting in a cesspool' (non-English, parahprased), so it is pointless to grind up to be food for them.

    I might be able to get him to try during expac again, but something could be improved for newbs to make the world feel more alive. My first attempt to convert someone to Darkfall and I failed :(

    Take him to a siege. It might help him put aside the other things after witnessing/taking part in a large fight. When I originally played DFO it was during a slow time and I had no clue how the game really was until I went to my first siege. The rest of the childish toxic shit just became funny to watch.

    Game world is huge, feels super dead. Even with a full server on EU launch you could run from 1 end of the map to the other and have the chance to not see anyone. Obviously starter cities and shit were full and players were in hot spots etc but there are useless parts of the map that are just toooo large for having nothing there but land and empty buildings or trees and shit. Good looking game world but it is designed for 10-15k people being logged in at once not 40-50. Its like going to disney world but there is only 5 people in magic kingdom, 5 people in typhoon lagoon, 5 people in the animal kingdom and they don't want to be seen.

    Game is really underpopulated and likely will be until some major changes are made / content added. I've always used the above to track population, its kind of scary on some days seeing just how little pvp there is.

    1. One or two starter areas, that's it.
    2. Better fucking portals, especially npc city to npc city (like if you still have your 24 hour noob timer, have the option to portal to any other capital city or regular city from your capital city).
    3. For the cities not being used as much, update the quests that the npcs in those cities give, one 20hour quest on each NPC and maybe a 7 day quest too.

    Shit like this would be fine imo.

    Oh jeez let's see. Zerg dropped on a bunch of cities, got their asses handed to them and then their SG's basically left leaving only Cocaine Blaine and Valcore really running the show, and we defended 3 or 4 counter sieges. It was an epic mostly sleepless weekend and completely flipped the switch for me about what Darkfall was.

    Arena
    Having to pick up quests (better quests and dailys pls) in npc cities
    Just remove some starter areas like uw did, it was in the lore so it was completely fine lol
    Mentor system?
    Downsized map? (but itll never happen)
    Clan activity points are another incentive to recruit noobs and help them
    Tcs would bring more action and help noobs feel like world is alive
    Remove markets from player cities, maybe even billboards

    Oh and not wearing a robe as a mage is another HUGE turnoff for new players that needs to be fixed ASAP, pls focus on that instead

    We are a toxic community. Dont worry we will all be praising BPG at the end of the road for the years we had DFO back
