We need players and to get players we need to advertise. Sure you could bump a post on sythe but why not do 1 better and ensure we gain people. This server is at the point where its not the staffs duty, its everyone duty. We all love NR and we want it to grow so lets do just that? TELL YOUR FRIENDS. Maybe we introduce incentives but for now we all want more activity! If you tell your friends and help them get started. We all gain. We ALL benefit. Share it on social media or among school circles. Incentives for retweeting or something might be worked out later.
I like this Breadly, the more everyone does their bit to vote/advertise the more the server grows and the more enjoyable it becomes for you all.
At this point half the server is simply too poor to go pking. Yes there will always be a wealth gap, but this early on we should try to help out the little guys (including me smh). This can be done by flooding the server with voting events, pking events, and forum events. A DROP PARTY is a good thing at the start of servers. Drop pk gear and watch as people think " hey I have these claws, Lets see what I can do" and go into the wildy. Juan has been working very hard to ensure we have smooth ticks and transitions with pking. I am 0 for 2 when it comes to pking so ill root from afar. You guys need to be understanding in the fact that we dont have enough players. Dont expect there to be 10 people to brid against when you enter the wildy. Work alongside the staff team and ADVERTISE.
We can definately work on lessening the gap between the rich and the poor, I agree that the wildy is not a great place currently for those who cannot afford the "High-Tier" gear.
Regarding the general PVP aspect we have been working closely with Juan recently to try and ensure a better feel to pking overall, I have some ideas for how we can get it right.
When we host these Wilderness events please dont think "I'm not going because nobody else will" if everyone thought that then you are correct, if everyone made the effort to come and PK the wildy would be full in no time.
This is currently being worked on so hooray for the pvmers.
Correct, we are almost finished with this.
Im currently slaving away at this daily. USE IT. If something wrong. TELL ME. Im happy to change or add anything you guys want. I love this game.
Please continue the work you are doing breadly its impressive and greatly appreciated.
5. Owner Activity.
Will is an absolutely amazing guy and hes suuper cool and understanding, But hes busy. Thats totally understandable, but you should appoint someone who you trust to the point where people can go to that person for issues like RD status and whatnot. We need the power to be distributed. Ultimate say? sure you can have that. But Delegate bro, Delegate.
I have the ability to deal with these issues, please all remember I am here. Anything I cannot do I will do my best to push towards Mod Jacmob or maybe even look for the access myself in the future.
6. PVP incentives.
Currently pking isnt worth it to many people. Increase chances of getting statuettes or gear drops. Cut pvp store item prices in half.
We have an idea for a new incentive that I will share with you all soon.
7. Donator Islands.
If we still have blueprints of the previous NR doner islands, lets begin to remake those. Ive seen complaints that there is no spec restore at ::di. Many people remember di having it and assumed it was part of the deal.
The flip side to this is the people who have upgraded themselves to ::DIE in order to access the alter.
8. Crystal key chest
I Agree that the crystal key chest is pretty awful at the moment, not a top priority but it does need to be changed in the future.
Not enough staff members are active. There should always be a staff member on. As long as theres a player on, you need a staffer on. I live in California and I see way too many moments when we are staffless, NOT GOOD considering ive heard staff say the USA is our primary player base.
Personally I believe that the majority of our staff deal is active. The issue we have is we are not so spread out over all of the different time zones, which is largely due to the player base being as you mentioned all USA based. In my eyes it would be great to see some Active and Helpful players from other parts of the world to apply for the staff team.
