Just wanted to say a public thankyou to Zume for conducting the interview and providing everyone with a summary - it was a rather long interview but I think I managed to answer quite a number of people's questions. I won't get into a discussion about all that is said here, but did want to post here and confirm that I do indeed read all the feedback. Quite often I simply can't discuss what happens behind the scenes but I can say that much of what is frustrating some of you is already high on my list of things to address. If you read through the summary I think you'll see that we are not working only on the new player experience for the next 12 months. Plenty of effort is going into ensuring a balance in the economy and gameplay for all levels. To address one point being made suggesting that we should not focus on new players and should focus on existing players from other planets. I will say it very clearly here, planets are simply not permitted to market to players on other planets. The future of Arkadia very much depends on new player growth which is why so much effort is being put towards attracting new players and then giving them an introduction to Arkadia that is exciting and truly gives people a feel for the game.
