hello,

i 've one question about new players,
it seems that new players, who join the game get starting positions very near to other players...

is this the intention of the hgih council?

i think the starting positions should be created with more space between new players

Hi Ares,

the tighter, the more action Smile

As we lose about 50% of new players, the starting positions should be ok.

Bye,
Maelstroem

@ Maelstroem:

of course in the german kosmor we lost a lot of players, but in the first time in kosmor.COM there are lots of "old" german player, who will not leave the game in the next time...

thatswhy i think it could be a problem...


@ Aurion:

do have enough place? Very Happy

well... if I look around, I see a lot of players living just one planet away from each other - and from many of them I don't think they'll leave...

So your house might never have problems with missing planets to jump to. Wink

*g* yes that it will not, for sure Smile and you can defend all your HPs with one fleet. and those tiny planets do have a reason to exist, not like in the german version where you only collect them if you need them to jump over...

I think there is no problem, if the HP's are close together. The players must talk, thats all!

I think its a REAL Problem !!!

I have now twice time set waypoint to a Planet size 3 and everytime i was near it an new Player occoured on this PLanet and it was now a size 2 with a player on it. I think its too much. It is too difficult to get neutral Planets !!! This can't be !

There are now 7 PLayers in a Range of 150 LJ ! And I think the only reason someone will stop playing is that he gets frustrated because there's a "fight" about neutral Planets..

Sorry but this can't go on like it is.

Greetings

@Ares: Why do you ask?

Getting neutral planets is not a problem due to new players placed swhich start on the planet you moved to, but it is a problem because there will be not enough planets for everyone.

@Phelan.

The newbie placement algorithm has been adjusted. They should be at least 90+ Lightyears away from the current position of your Warplanet. So, if you fly to any Size-3 solar system which is reachable within 3 days of flight, NO newbie should be placed there!

Bye,
Maelstroem
