It does say a lot about our current playerbase (or should i say forumbase?), when we are trying to implent something to help new players and low pop time zones to easier level up and find a group and the majority in this thread is complaining about us destroying the solo farming.
A guildie posted in our Discord about this, and what he said kind of resonates. I don't know if I completely agree, as I'm currently having a blast on this server, and I'm going to paraphrase, as I don't know that they'd want this put here but:
Uthgard - Classic server with no QOL - Died
This server - Classic server with too much QOL - going to die
Where's the "just right" server?
I recently came to this server. Came due to a Youtube video I saw, inviting folks to join them. It was a blast. Definite learning curve, but caught on pretty quick. Switched over to a different realm, which meant I was pretty much completely solo, and leveled just fine, before I caught on with a guild.
This server is NOT that difficult to level on. I leveled an aug/mend healer to level 43 before getting any groups or help from the guild. There is NO offense on that character other than the auto-combat swing. I understand wanting to make it easier on new players. People these days don't have the patience to figure things out, and just go out and kill stuff to get to a certain level where people are more likely to group them. But it is already pretty darn easy to level. Maybe I'm missing some of the big picture, but I don't see how this is going to make it that much easier for folks. If you can't find a group, it's probably because there's no one doing what you want to do, or no one that wants to group at that moment.
I just personally feel that you guys are trying to fix things that aren't as broken as you think, or are more broken than I see. How many "old timers" are going to be pushed away, in order to help out a few "new comers"? There has to be a balance.
