With each update the Business Model and MMO model of DCUO seems to keep contradicting each other. Most infamous would be GU47. The purpose of a MMO is to make a single player experience but with a huge playerbase. Now when there are two playerbases but with a HUGE gap in between them to make the bridge, the lower tier players reach that gap and just ultimately quit. The higher tier players never even look back. The gap, you ask is Tier 1-5. Now with the higher tier players having zero incentive to go back and do the old content, the gap is bigger. Now as you can see Tier 1-5 is a HUGE gap between us and them. If you think i am exaggerating, take a look at your LFG and see how many people are shouting for FoS/Batcave/Khandaq and compare that with the tier 6 and 7 content. Exactly. New players can never reach across that gap without the help of the higher players. You're probably saying "Well why don't the new players just bridge the gap themselves like we did?". That's because we had a very large playerbase to do that. With the numbers dwindling, it's hard for new players to create their own generation of players. People making Alts on the other hand don't have nearly as bad. They usually have friends willing to go back and carry them through content so they can cross that gap. But new players don't as they're going into DCUO blind. Now, let's talk about population. On my level 17, it took and I counted, 37 minutes and 15 seconds for me to finally queue into Gorilla Island. We got through it no problem, but as you can see that is MORE than enough time for the average player to finally give up and Close Application (Which a new player would do in a heartbeat.) Imagine being a new player with no friends, and trying to do a raid that absolutely no one plays anymore. Terrible, correct? Don't get me wrong. This isn't some Bash DCUO post, I wouldn't be playing the game and on the forums if i wanted DCUO to fail. I am desperately trying to help Daybreak see these errors and try to correct them before it's too late. I would love to have a chat or phone call with Mepps or someone else of importance to truly discuss how to save DCUO.
