Until we get something else for the NPE, would it be possible to put a green dot next to a new player’s name so that we can tell who they are? Or make their name blue or something? Not on everyone’s new alt/characters, just on a new account. Maybe for anyone with less than 40 hours? And have that show up on the atlas as a green dot so we can locate them?
There’s a new steam review with all kinds of wrong info on it. I can tell the person really wanted to play the game & it seems like they just got frustrated and gave up. It seems like if they had a mentor, or some help, a little guidance or something, they probably would have stuck around. (No, I’m not saying all the steam reviews should all be positive or anything like that. Steam reviews aren’t the focus here…NPE is)
Yes, I know some will say it’s not our responsibility. And that’s fine. I personally love to help players, answer questions, show them some helpful things, etc. I’ve come across new players that were frustrated with not finding people or not understanding beacons - they were ready to quit - with a little guidance, they are merrily playing the game now.
And possibly in the future, create that T0 world for noobs to incubate in until they are ready for Boundless. Maybe select a handful of vets/volunteers that are allowed to travel to the T0 to wander around and answer questions, give tips, etc (if/when they feel like it).
