Double XP weekend

#1 » Post by ayberkev » 12 Oct 2017 13:55

As we start to get new content release on Primal WoW, we are probably gonna get some new players attention who wants to check out the server. So i recommend that we further encourage them with a double XP weekend. This will not only motivate the new players but it will also make old players to level up new alts which should populate lower level dungeons and areas to accompany the fresh players.
I would also say that we repeat this at every new content release so we have some material to advertise server to the new faces.

Why only for Primal?

We could use those on TrueWoW as well.

This has been suggested many times in the past and has been rejected every time. I assume now will be no different, but I will leave the topic open for the time being.

And why have it been rejected? If it's being suggested over and over, it clearly shows people want it.

An idea being rejected does not mean staff do not give the idea any thought. It has been mulled over each time with careful discussion, but the cons have always outweighed the pros. Feel free to refer back to previous considerations and reasonings behind the decision.

The situation may be different enough now to warrant changes, but it will take some well-discussed reasoning to motivate changes that will take development energy away from other work that needs doing. Many prior player discussions devolved into 50-50 split flame wars for and against. In such instances it is much easier to choose the path of less work when neither side is the clear most popular choice. Thus, I leave discussion open, but unless opinion has greatly swayed we will likely end up with a stalemate or unproductive discussion.

I have read the entire 4 pages of this thread you linked in the post, but I couldn't quite see anything relating specifically to double xp weekends (it was mostly a discussion about donation options - whether to include mounts/gear - etc. - and advertisement).

Double xp weekeneds should not even be perceieved as a population booster. They should be considered for what they really are - an easier, less dull and quicker way for current players to level up new characters to have something to do.

And, honestly, I don't know why you still insist on "unique x1 levelling experience", when levelling is only even remotely entertaining if there are dungeons and groups, none of which exist at this point of TW development curve.

Perhaps you are afraid you are losing the only thing that makes this server unique - maybe because there is nothing else left to stand out for: PvP - NO, PvE scripts - NO, population - NO, transfer options - YES and NO.

The easiest way to compare the then and now TW is to examine how many achievements a player can obtain nowadays (there are players with almost 11500 achievement points, which means nearly everything was achievable at some point) compared to the period with most working encounters/scenarios/quests/mechanics without the assistance of a GM or a quest completer.

In regard to the lack of new players - I wouldn't say there aren't any new players out there, even those who end up levelling up all the way to level 80, but the problem is, and it is a problem shared among most lower population servers, that those players are mostly lone wolves, who prefer to run around alone and kill NPCs than join anything that requires player interaction of any sort.

There were plenty occasions (even as late as this week), where there have been over 30 level 80 players online, but only half of them joined anything player-player related (PvP or PvE).

also most of the other suggestions like this one has been for permanent xp increases not weekend only events like this one
i think this is a ver good idea and might combat some of the raidlogging and even possibly bring in some more people

tldr +1 from me

Transfers are actually also actively working against this. Why would person A bother Leveling completely solo while others get 8 max lvl characters handed to them, meanwhile Person A just isn't lucky enough to own a character that hasn't been deleted.
On the other hand transfers are getting us more players.

I think there was some leveling event teased before, when I find it I will edit a link to it

EDIT: Aha!

Not sure what is being planned there, but I suspect it's something that ties in with the weekly/monthly events to reward participation tokens to players who help newcomers with leveling. If not that would also be an idea ^^

Any update on this?
Could really use a boost for new players, especially up to level 60, because they feel very lonely and left behind while the rest of the server raids SSC (and then stop playing) :(
