Genuine question. How do we help the new players or the ones struggling with clamped content? I don't mean to sound disrespectful but I and my imaginary friends split up this weekend to run pugs and my lord. My lord. 1, we all still out damaged by a ton so don't need the "clamp is showing people they aren't that good" argument creeping in. Honestly, let's try just keeping all feelings out of this one way or the other. For the sake of this post, let's just all pretend that this is 100% here to stay as is right now. And again, thank you devs for returning source to end game. My friends runs didnt go well. At all. So, story time. I omni'd into lockdown. They had already started barda. Tank, 2 heals, troll. So I was sitting outside for 14mins till they wiped. I left at the wipe because while I was outside, I inspected everyone of them. Tank had all dps gear, and 1 healer artifact and 2 dps ones. Bottom augs were might and vit. Healers, both mixed dps gear and 1 was quislet/ grim/ pied piper's, other was circes, starheart, and omegeheddadron (yup, bad spelling lol). Troll, all dps gear again and artis were at least 2 troll ones and a purple healing ray. Rainbow bottom augs. Now dps's.... 2 had full healer gear. Rainbow augs again and some strange choices of artis. 1 had dps gear and then resto/vit/2 might augs. Tl:dr: new players do not understand how to build a toon. And now they really need to know or they will hate their in game experience. What could I have done? Like really? Tell them all that their builds are terrible? I've tried on multiple occasions and am usually met with no response. I've written emails to players after they've been kicked and then reinspected weeks later and nothing changed. A few weeks ago, we could carry them. Now we can't. So we have to help. They have to want help. Or we have to force help. My ideas: A role pack. Either give it out with the skip or put it on mp or just offer it at lvl 30. Basically, it gives you the ability to say "I want to heal" and it gives you proper augs and food to fill it. It gives you choices of healer artis, and only healer artis, listed from best to least used. They cost like nothing to give out. Help them. Any role can be done this way and for dps, just have them either prec or might packs. Tutorials. Links at least somewhere? Like we get emails from the game, send some links. Maybe make an opening message from Oracle telling them that it's a great idea to go find a tutorial. Or make a video they can watch/ listen to that once they do, they get 25 source marks. They're being passed out a lot anyway so what's it matter now. Forced league internships. Any toon made is put into a general league. Filled with other new players. Offer incentives for the vets to join and mentor. Help them learn the benefits. Keep it moderated very strictly and let everyone know it will be. They'll all leave the league eventually but at least they get some knowledge maybe? Any other ideas?? We don't need to toss insults or opinions about how we feel in here. Let's stay on topic!
