Gladwell identified something akin to "sense of community" as a key factor necessary for products to "tip" in The Tipping Point. Don't dismiss it. Having people feel connected to others in the game can be really powerful.

Did you check out worthings starter videos?


It took someone else to bring it up to get a response on this - love it.

No, I haven't seen worthing's videos. Knowing worthing they would be comprehensive and offer some guidance at least on opens and considerations. I assume they are hidden in the forums where new people shouldn't have to search.

Ultimately, if they aren't being tied in with the new user experience directly, then they are wasted potential in my opinion, along with the work done on the new starters.

They have actually been stickied by a mystic and invisible force in Lapierre's. (The rest still applies)

If I were a new player, and I saw the ex cards for sale for nearly $50, then looked at how big the card list is, I would leave.

We agree on quite a few things it seems.

Maybe introduce and alternate currency where stuff is a bit cheaper with that currency compared to normal gran but it can only be got by paying therefore rewarding spending players more and encouraging people to spend

I was so happy to see that ex 11 was released this morning. Then i read the paragraph and saw it's associated cost and was like wtf? Same cost as with gamepot and the rest. I was under a false assumption after that great black friday event that we had turned the corner as far as costs go but i think i was wrong.

This is not the message you want to send to new players in my opinion. honestly, i would recommend that they get a starter and wait for a rarity up lotto - pay close attention to recycle rates then play sphere specific. I am not saying don't play just don't overpay to play.
