First I need to say that the game is really cool and that the devs did a very good job so far!
I currently have 5 regions activated for my players, going from level 1 to level 4 at the moment. The problem is that my players are staying in level one regions for the most part, like I’ve never seen more than 300 players in my level 2 region despite the fact that they are more than 3800 of level 2 players. My level 3 region has near 15 players at best and the level 4 is at best with 2 players in it.
I gave my players guards along the roads, quest givers that link with other NPCs in other regions and a clear path towards the next region, but it seems that they only want to fight a few monsters in a region that isn’t appriopriate, socialize a bit before disconnecting.
I don’t know what to do cause I have a lot of ideas of classes, monsters and regions, but if players don’t reach them it’s pretty sad…
