Here's a game that's better than runescape :)

Here are just a few ideas coming off the top of my head at 4 in the morning.

1. Give chat to the players immediately. Why the hell it doesn't already work this way I will never, ever know. Not even if Jon tries to explain it to me.

2. I like the idea of putting forth a few strats to new players, but nothing too restrictive. It's been mentioned that the tutorial should tell new players to go SFBM until such and such MPR, blah blah blah. I think that's stupid. The more variety of strategy we have (which does mean more players/player retention) the more CB can grow. Adding 100 more SFBM to CB's active players would suck.
Anyway. Maybe outline a few strats and explain what each one is meant to accomplish, and encourage players to make changes to the "default" strats and find one that is their own.



I'm going to bed....

I am going to think about this.... but as of now, I would address this as the most addictive game ever :) The homepage picture needs some help, also imo (not discrediting whoever made it) I just think the 'face' of CB could be elaborated in a empircal way.

I think its because there is already a lot to figure out (menus and such), adding chat as well could be confusing. Not 100% sure, though~

We also need to make sure the DD over weapons thing is explained.
How there are -rare- weapons and armour, so store items shouldn't be upgraded.
EXP concentration needs to be explained.

And I can't think of anything right nows...

You don't get chat until after you finish the tutorial.
