Pls allow Players to set a Respawn Point using something very Cheap like a Sleeping Bag.
So they can move over the Continent.
Just today you lost 3 Players because they (And I cant really argue with that) said that they aint going to waste 4-5 Hours of their Life to walk/run to the other End of the Continent before they can even start Playing.
This Running Simulator rubbish is a Gamebreaker for any New Players trying the Game.
And if you Pair it with the Fact that there is alot of Animals and RPKs that will easily Massacre a new Player without him having any Chance to Survive. You get a Situation where a new Player in essence Plays a very boring Lottery for his first few Hours in the Game.
This Lottery being that he Runs for Hours which is extremely boring. And then hopefully arrives. Cause if he gets killed on the Way and realizes he can Run again it is highly likely that he will just Ragequit and Uninstall the Game for Good.
Which is what happened to several Friends I wanted to get into the Game today.
I quote "If I want to Play a Game. I want to actually Play that Game. Not waste 4 Hours of my Life Running somewhere and then get killed and start from the beginning again"
I quote further "Not going to touch this crab game again. Its a waste of time and not worth the Space on my Harddisk."
There needs to be a better Option for Spawning than to just Dump New Players on a Random Spot on the Coast where they then might end up Miles away from their Friends and then have to somehow walk for Hours to get to the Settlement of their Friends.
Allow Players to Spawn on their Friends Bound House.
Allow Players to Spawn on a Bedroll that can be Crafted with Cheap Plant Fibers. So they can at least set Respawn Points on the way.
Spawn all new Players in the Capitol City and Allow Players to Life in the Capitol City at the Start. Adding a Bank, a Inn and some of the lower level Crafting Stuff and Shops to the Capitol City.
So that New Players can first Life in the Capitol City and then once they got at least basic Skills etc can leave the City to Build their own Homes and Cities.
In Any Case.
Its Paramount you do something about this.
At least one of the Guys you lost Today is anything but not a Casual Player. And if he gets this Pissed at a Game. Then I can tell that this Game wont be able to Retain even 1% of the Players Joining it.
