Just to put things into perspective, I seem to recall that GC1 had nearly 4 times as many people join within the first 2 hours that GC3 has had thus far.

I hope FF is seeing these dismally low numbers and realizes that this is due to how unpopular with the players their Era rules truly are.

I would have loved to join a new GC map, but not under the current implementation of these Era rules.

When I see the pitiful low number of players joining this new world on what should have been one of SHK's most popular maps, I tend to believe that most of SHK's players dislike the current implementation of the Era rules as I do.

Maybe now FF will realize just how badly and how quickly the are losing their customers and take a more concerted effort not only to resolve issues with the Era rules, but provide a more frequent and greater degree of communications with us, their players, on the steps they are taking to towards a resolution.

While its true that I can always go and play another game, and most like be happy doing so. The question is can FF afford to lose so very many of their customers over something as stupid as these Era rules?

I really don't think so.

20 hours after launch GC-3 has 3,756 total players

House 10 (madcol) has a full 20 members
House 19 (KAMAZ66) has a full 20 members
House 01 (Dave1) has 10 members

Amazingly we only have 3 players ranked Page or higher. GC-3 is far less popular that previous GC servers

Knight = 3
Squire = 0
Page = 0
Gentlemen = 1
Aldermen = 0
Yeomen = 2
Thanes = 37
Commoners = 225
Freemen = 551
Bondsmen = 476
Villeins = 659
Serfs = 605
Peasants = 413
Yokels = 320
Bumkins = 139
Village Idiots = 303 <<---- Again, what kind of real player joins a new server and DOES NOT complete the tutorial?

8:15 AM server time is 22 hours after launch and GC-3 is up to 3,870 total players

Much has climbed the ranks quickly and is a Knight now and has started a faction. I will let everyone know which House he picks once he has a 5 man faction.

House 10 has 1 faction and 20 players
House 19 has 1 faction and 20 players
House 01 has 1 faction and 10 players

Knight = 3
Squire = 0
Page = 1
Gentlemen = 1
Aldermen = 0
Yeomen = 2
Thanes = 52
Commoners = 267
Freemen = 613
Bondsmen = 528
Villeins = 660
Serfs = 571
Peasants = 410
Yokels = 300
Bumkins = 133

10:30 AM - a little over 1 day after the CG-3 launch and there are 4,102 players on the server.

Knight = 3
Squire = 0
Page = 1
Gentlemen = 2
Aldermen = 9
Yeomen = 2
Thanes = 73
Commoners = 329
Freemen = 659
Bondsmen = 591
Villeins = 666
Serfs = 537
Peasants = 370
Yokels = 313
Bumkins = 144
Village Idiots = 380

I am looking around and noticing there are "accounts" still at Village Idiot rank that have dropped their peace protection. What legitimate player would ever do that?

H 01 has 1 faction and 10 members
H 10 has 1 faction and 09 members

Gentlemen = 2
Aldermen = 25
Yeomen = 2
Thanes = 123

Serfs = 513
Peasants = 423
Yokels = 330
Bumkins = 155
Village Idiots = 459 <--- percentage of "ghost accounts" is starting to ramp up
