    Nice. Did you count kills and ganks if the person doing it and person getting it were same clan?

    Here's some more fun statistics, this is the retention percentage for new players during this period. We can see from this that we lose 55% of new players on their first day. This is about average for most games but obviously it's something we would like to improve as much as possible. But we can also see that players that make it through the first week are very likely to keep playing. 20% retention after 30 days is pretty decent, so if we can improve the first week of game-play and get more new players trying the game, we should see constant growth like we have been seeing through the free period.

    Find a way to help players learn better from day one and that would help a ton.
    Most people see really confused and rather give up than fight forward.

    make the meta of combat the way to kill mob's. Through spell combo's it can increase damage to mob's. Give hint's that pop up on screen when you attack a mob that tells you these combos. That way while they learn to farm they can learn spell rotations etc. for pvp.

    Great stats! Perhaps we need to look at our community to help grow the numbers and retention. A few things come to mind:

    1. Clean up the hate in Agon chat.
    2. If you see someone new asking questions in Agon chat, you know they are new and need to get into a clan immediately. This is the best way for them to grow as a player (joining a guild.)
    3. Clean up the hate in Agon chat.

    Love, Snow

    NPE aside, there should be an easier way for new players to find groups of players to play with. Most modern games (mmos in particular) people can get by fairly decent on their own. I honestly can’t see a new player having any sucess in this game by themselves.

    Wow had a guild finding tool, not sure how effective something like that would be. I do think it would help retention since much of the enjoyment of DF is through team play, and I regularly see unclanned blues when im near capitals.

    This game could make use of an NPC corp variant of eve. Would be difficult to implement i imagine tho

    Its not that bad lol. Theyve moderated pretty substantially recently. Every online scenario with chat ia going to have raunchy shit in it. Just need to snuff out the harmful bullshit.

    I rarely have Agon chat up as it is toxic, and always will be. lol. (I do peek at it sometimes)

    A recruiting board inside the game at the banks with guilds that are recruiting. Don't know the dynamics of how it can be created, but it could say "New Players Start Here," they click on it and can see the different guilds with who to contact. I know that sounds perhaps like too much, but if i was brand new, I wouldn't know where to begin. Having the recruitment tab in game is fabulous, but do we need more?

    Every fight there is normally a ton of toxicity, granted not so much now hammer heads calmed down but people like him just make it horrible to read.

    As long as it doesn't digress into RL insults, I don't think it can be considered toxic. I'd rather see someone say the game is dead than see no one type and just assume it is.

    That being said, at least you can read Agon and know that there is stuff going on in the world. If it wasn’t for that channel the game might legitimately seem dead to a new player.
