new_players: 4 users (in General)

Please, can we delete the New Players room? Originally, it split the random new player trolling from the masses, cut back over-crowding in Carnage, and provided support to new players, but now it just makes the game feel empty to those starting CB.

And after that, how about nuking Shire for that same feeling of emptiness?

Lol, there are usually more regulars in NP than newbies. It just makes no sense to keep that room around. At least not until we get more people to join it.

Why do we have realms to begin with?

Yes Shire and NP need to go please.

I personally liked The Shire, being able to see my character rise to the top there in the beginning. Starting out in Rivendell, NUBs probably wouldn't see themselves on any lists for at least month.

I don't see any benefit to getting rid of it. It doesn't really affect anything other than being able to see your stats against other newer players, and allows new users to show some success early on.

The problem is that I've had to explain to new players that the game isn't dead, there are other people playing -- they're just in other realms.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] June 21 2010 1:59 PM EDT

It was pretty clear to me that they were in other realms, and I rather liked being able to compete with other people who just joined at the same time as me. On the other hand, I can completely understand about the new player chat room.

You started in '07. "Other people" is more like "other person" now. Here's the link:

If you inspect the players, you'll find that most of them aren't even playing. It can't be good for morale to hit first place on your very first day and feel like you're the only one playing, but it's happening.

All I propose is that we either delete Shire or extend its time to encompass more active players.

Hey, if I had hit the top of shire in the first two weeks of playing, I'd of felt like a freaking rockstar... And then been annoyed at the fact I had no competition for the top slot.

RIP NP - technically new_players was long dead, the first time it was gotten rid of it pretty much killed it, once Bast left it was beyond hope. Here's to remembering the days when it was the best place on the net.

Nothing changed from her leaving NP. Was like she was never there.
She left because of acceptance the end was already there.
