    During a talk in Agon chat it was brought up that the clan "NEW" (or one similar , the name is irrelevant ) should be brought back to life to help with new players who join the game and need a hand with getting their feet wet and some direction in the game.

    I was around when NEW was going strong and I saw a lot of players come out of it into my clan as well as others, i still play with some of them still :)

    Anywho, I think it would be amazing to get this going again and there are a few vets who currently do this on a small scale already. Would the server be behind the idea? would there be some consensus that this would be a good thing for the game and help the population continue to grow? I think a city like Hammerdale would be amazing to get them based out of as it worked really well with the clan NEW.


    Would BPG take part in some king of help with this clan ?

    The only kind of help I can think of from BPG would be to make it a default NPC type clan that couldn't be at war then set them as the owner of Hammerdale with no way to siege it.

    Maybe you can rent an office there and use it as your home.. like an NPC station in Eve Online.

    I like the idea of NEW, but it simply did not seem to have a high retention rate. I used to hide in Hammerdale to help fight the bads that would try to pick on them.

    I would rather new players joined clans and saw the game that way.

    New is a good stepping stone but as long as leaderships knows which way people need to go. It needs to be like a hydra where there are multiple leaders with the same idea of what should be good for the new players.

    I voted bad.

    A discord server for new players would be good enough. It would serve the same purpose.

    I honestly do not believe we get new players.
    I would love for someone to prove me wrong.

    Please, please prove me wrong.

    How you might ask?
    You can't.
    I believe we have some third rate actors trying to claim noob status and that is about it.

    In Intensity there were about 5 new players as of two weeks ago and I helped a complete newbie get started last sunday. The new players exist.

    Maybe you got lucky and got the second rate actors then. I would even go so far as to concede we have some Oscar worthy performaces of noobs.
    But real actual noobs? How do you prove it? I have thought about this alot. There is no way to prove it.

    I wish it were not so. :(

    Youve just built your own mental box, hopped in it and closed the lid. No point in arguing. Have a nice day.

    If you could tell me how to prove my side, I would listen. I have said more than once now I am ok with being proven wrong. No one else has even hinted at how I could be right. *shrug*

    A NEW Clan would be good idea. I helped support New in DFO when Mycke was leading. I am all for the idea. It is alot of work and anyone who wants to take up that mantle again, may Agon gods bless you. I will also help to support you. Tell me what you want and need, I will help make it happen.

    Was never trying to argue. Just stated my opinion. I was not trying to change anyone else's mind either.

    mycke never led NEW? was that in EU?
    after kimoshu alpha mage kade(quintessence) and some others my dad was left alone to lead NEW for a short while
    watching from the sidelines and trying to help every now and then i can confirm the job of leading a clan like new is complete cancer, even just mentoring 1 new player properly takes a bunch of effort, i dont know if theres anyone who could do the job but even then theres always the problem that you cant siege anything, because then youd get either shitstomped or sieged back, but noobs need that siege experience, also usually you dont have verry good players in the clan to learn alot from, youll also get people raiding you because youre an easy target and noobs quitting because they hate losing gear, etc

    i think the issue lies more on NPE than on the need for a clan like NEW, the solution would be to either get npe patches... wich wont happen verry soon, or for clans to.... get good at training noobs and start accepting them?
    you cant just put the burden on one guy or a few volunteer people, we need everyone to do a part and help the new players
