Yea, there's also that fallacy.. DemonGod, you can't say for sure that what you think is what would happen or even the right thing to do.. realize that your ideas would take time to implement because huge changes need time to discuss and think of every last consequence... since a wrong decision could be fatal..
Also, why not advertise on the site now and see anyway? Would it hurt you to do so? Instead its like you are holding that over our heads as a threat of sorts, and i just find that kinda childish and silly. Give a warning that the current game is a bit tough on free players for now and that they'll need patience...
After all, wouldn't a huge surge of free players be the best way to encourage the site to speed up efforts to help free players? Instead of being destructive and saying "give me what i want or i'll give you negative press, me me me," why not just give the game the benefit of the doubt, give it some positive attention (you yourself said its a great and fun game, just with current free player "disadvantages" WHICH ARE BEING WORKED ON AT ALMOST TOP PRIORITY BY THE GM'S. Heck, tell them explicitly to use the forums and chat and not be shy about getting help because "the vets there claim that that would help a lot". I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, to see a bunch of new free players in chat asking for help on how to make their starters work well in Folrart. I would help them out anytime. In other words, you could create a new batch of iczers with the right mindset to potentially succeed even in these circumstances that would hopefully improve, and likely improve with such a new playerbase, and make the game grow now... instead of being negative about it and using it as a threat. Does that make any sense? I hope you don't avoid this paragraph, cuz i like that idea.. discuss it with me please ^^
Instead of having silly arguments and having threats, why not work together to come up with solutions that don't even involve needed immediate changes by helping to advertise a playerbase already with the expectation of what is to come and the mindset to overcome it?
