    Today I took a tour of Alfar lands, Tribelands, and Dwarflands, and was pretty disappointed to see a small handful of people in each of those regions.

    Humanlands seems to be the most populated but that's mainly due to trading alts at bank.

    DFO had more populated cities the day servers went offline.

    its pointless to be in any other city longer than you need to be, so they should be empty. Sanguine is only populated for the reason you stated, trading. Other than that, its better to just go to a clan city

    So why did people leave this time? Why aren't we getting and keeping new players? Is BPG going to do anything to fix the problem or do they even realize there is a problem?

    Well I wasn't doing a tour of all the clan cities I was doing a tour of the NPC cities.

    Like it or not, the NPC cities are a good proxy for measuring the population of the game. More people in NPC cities means more people overall. Less people in NPC cities generally means less people overall.

    Also new players tend to hand around NPC cities more than veteran characters. If there's very few people in NPC towns that's a good indicator that the game isn't drawing in a lot of new players. Seeing as a proportion of players will leave the game each month when their subs run out, if there's no new players coming into the game we'll very quickly have negative population growth and a dead game in 2, maybe 3 months tops.

    Well thats not good, if the only reason to not be red is no access to NPC cities but there is no reason to be in NPC cities anyway, then there is no reason to not be red.

    I dont really know what they could add to make them more desirable. I also dont really know why you would want to entice or encourage someone to stay in an NPC city. Its much more fun join a clan and participate in everything the game has to offer, out side of city walls. At least to me, NPC cities should just be a first step to learn, do some quests, get your footing, trade etc. Then after that you create your own clan or join up and do stuff.

    The point of my post was the flaws in alignment not the usefulness of NPC cities, but way to miss the point there sparky.

    im not missing any point or arguing, im just simply having a discussion, and my point of view in regards to NPC cities is you should leave them, not stay in them, which is why i dont care if an NPC city is unpopulated

    Week 1 was acid baths and week 2 was rigormids, so had to be at least week 3-4.

    Good luck fighting that battle. A guy made a suggestion in a thread not long ago to make sele or easier to get, and I shit you not there was discussion as to whether to call him retarded autistic or downs.

    So anyone who has any feedback and doesn't have a legend title may as well fuck off.

    No point in arguing over the population. In fact, it's perfectly fine for the state of the game right now. Once the game is a bit more polished we can cross that bridge. Let's focus on larger issues at the moment like the poor alignment system and pve content. Once we have all that stuff nailed down you guys are free to cry about population even though let's be serious, most of you are probably staring at your bank forumfalling as opposed to contributing to the "population"

    The amount of chinks being had at Darkfall in this thread is fucking pathetic. Moderation needs to happen. Blatant lies Doom us all.

    That's not how these things work unfortunately. The time for polish was before launch. That way everyone could start the game on an equal footing.

    Expecting massive pop growth 6 months into a games release simply realistic.
