New players have a fun time in crest, but when they get to folrart it's another story.
Don't tell me these new starters make a difference, I can fend them off with a huff and a puff. The only thing I can do in folrart is give up the match to help them lvl a bit, but me giving away wins won't make players feel better (maybe a bit) or get better.
My battles when I was a noob were 90% of the time vs a player of lvl 50+. I know I didn't like that, now you have loads of players lvl 100+.
Of course players say: lvl doesn't matter, it's all about the rep. NO.... It's both of importance.
Lets compair a lvl 15
lvl 100 and lets say they both haven't used cash:
Higher lvl ppl have more reward cards. Which gives them more file choice (you know what I mean). At a certain point you even get 4-5 star cards when lvling and some of them are needed to build a strong file, we can't all go for pixie.
Higher lvl players have more experience (playing experience, you know more. There are exceptions (me))
INTIMIDATION: It's intimidating for a noob to battle a high lvl player and having to battle vs them all the time... well, that's NOT FUN
My point is
LVL does matter.
I'm not saying ppl at higher lvl will always beat a lower lvl. After you pass some point you know it's irrelevant, but to newbies (referring a bit to me when I was a noob) it does irritate and push you away from the game.
So what to do
Make the lvl and rep counter not visible for other players? Like that'll help...
- Some players like to show off how good they are. (also me, though I wouldn't mind if they would remove it)
- Noobies will still keep losing at folrart. And you don't get sht for losing! Don't go thinking: well with underdog, even if you lose...bla bla bla crap.
I'm not so smart, but what I've always thought could help bring us some more players was to also reward losing.
Right now you get exp (pffftt...right) for losing and some fm.
Idk what rewards should be given for losing, but other might. cmon
come up with some
Another thing I thought would be fun is:
Maybe some alteil themed mini-games stuff. Like the memory thing we have, mirage master, that's a solo thing. Wouldn't it be awesome to play vs others?
You can use like 5/10/20/50 gran(depending on how rich you are) as entree fee and play vs others.
I've read that alteiljp has more than just mirage master. Idk what kinda stuff they have, but i'm guessing it's helping. They are doing pretty good.
We'll that's pretty much all the things I can think of. My brain needs a rest. I'll leave the rest to you
*edit: forgot about the most important thing, LOWER THE PRICES!!!
