Post Underpopulated Worlds
I've noticed that as some worlds come to a close for the first age many worlds are losing many players, and new players are almost nonexistent. Its doesn't seem like much is being done to populate those worlds. There is plenty of advertisement for new worlds opening up, but worlds that have been around for awhile they are slowly dying off. What plans has firefly made to prevent worlds from completely dying off?

New players shouldn't feel obligated to play old worlds when they don't stand a chance at fighting those with millions of FP stocked up. It might actually hurt FF if new players were directed towards said old world to only quit days later for obvious reasons.


Take a look in the feedback forum, this has been brought up countless times ;P


-ps world merge *cough*

they may want to rethink more factions per house as when 2nd age starts they all jump on the bandwagon like W4 that ended before it began, maybe more houses with less factions would work better

I think world 4 could have been interesting in age 2 if more people were up for a good fight. It was rumoured that h13 would split in age 2 and fight each other, but people were probably too distracted by other worlds, and decided to sit back and do nothing for an age. A very small proportion of h13 were fighting h12, the rest were doing nothing. So we had a bit of fun ;)
I am now hoping age 3 will be more exciting.

So far in age switches i find world 1 to be most exciting.
In age2 whole world united against super power h18. And in age 3 whole world united against the powerfull h17. And the world still has some fun.

It all depends on the players about how they want to play. They can sit back and make it useless world or they can fight like in world 1

I disagree 100%. New worlds are a new players worth nightmare. New worlds are a free for all frenzy of activity and can be very cu-throat. Additionally new worlds are dominated by carders.

In established worlds, a new player can come in under the radar and learn the game. Because old worlds are often underpopulated, most stewards are excited to see new players and eager to help them. Now certainly there are shortcomings to trying to jump into an old world and fight immediately, but for a new player learning the game, it is the best environment to grow.

I personally think the best scenario is a player play in an old world to start for a few months and then once they have learned the basics, to jump to a newly opened world for that 'even' start.

Well truth be told I am just finding this game to be boring all around now. after just over 3 years of playing and most of that fighting against the same lamers I am bored and tired. Plus real life requires attention as school and family need to come before a game I am bored with.

All this talk of W4 being boring and not very populated.....finding inactives is getting harder.......land in key regions and you have instant activity....etc. It could be good again.

The problem is that the larger factions have all merged into H13 so any opposition is quashed pretty quickly, usually by the poorer players. The last real good battle was when Sangreal took Northumberland....and that was a while ago.

All we need is a couple of factions to start an alternative and people will join. We just need someone with the cahones. Any takers?

Factions will NOT join you if you take up arms, even pming every single player in all houses will get you nothing except 1-2 farmers that are looking to get reset.
We tried everything, believe me when I say everything. No one was willing to fight them except a few of us, but when the fighting came around we were already burned dry of FP and generally sick of fighting impossible odds.

I wish you luck mate but the fact is they're going to put weeks on excom on your kingdoms while you're sleeping.

You can't have tried everything. e.g. you didn't include me!

Join up my friend. It will only take a few.

If we build it they will come!!

Everyone is sick of H13, just too many people are afraid to lose things. We are not. Excomm me and take me out - I'll be back.
