Hey everyone. I just wanted to give an update on where we are with new players. We are constantly having new players join each and every day, but when they come online and see less than 10 people online, they don't even give us a chance. Many of you who have stuck around did give us that chance, and now you are part of our loyal player base. I know I've talked about this before, but I just wanted to point something out.
The top list listings are working.
Players who browse the top lists looking for new a potential server actually stop and download ours. That means they like what they see in the description and the banner, and we get their traffic. They don't get to really try out what they saw in the listing because they decide they want a larger player base. It really just stinks, because if half of these people stayed online for more than an hour, they would see other players joining as well as our regular players hopping online.
Yesterday, alone (2/6/18), I count 13 new accounts. Imagine if these players actually gave us a shot. For this, I ask you...if you are able to be logged in, whether afk or not, please do so. If you have two accounts, please log in to both of them. Player count is one of the first things new players look at when they log in. Without it, people rarely give us a chance. This isn't about falsifying the player count, it's about player retention. I think the true player milestone we have to achieve is 25 online at once. Once we do that, I feel like we'll be good and won't have to have this conversation again
Thanks for sticking around, and if you're new, welcome! Thanks for giving us a shot!
