New players on an advanced server
« on: May 12, 2019, 11:33:09 pm »

First I want to make clear this is not a complaint.
When a new player joins a sever that has advanced in game days, it can be daunting task to survive and level.
Currently, there are usually multiple glowing ferals and the feral wights in any building.
With quick thinking you can escape but it does limit the leveling ability of low level players. You really cannot fight 3 or 4 ferals or cops at level 2 with a level 1 weapon.

Do we know if Fun Pimps is aware of this as an issue on servers?
Is there any comment from them?

One thing I just became aware of is that the feral wights only spawn in cities, which is what I am near, caves, and hordes. (According to the wiki.)
So a low level player might want to avoid cities at first.

This won't prevent me from playing and it probably won't stop many players, but I have seen some other players show frustration in chat.
I happen to like the extra risk even though it hampers my ability to level through zombie kills.

I don't expect an immeadiate solution. I am just curious if this is a shared concern among players and if there at least a discussion at some level.

To be honest, I don't think the Fun Pimps will be happy until the game is even harder.  That aside, our server difficulty isn't even high.  It's set to medium.

I also have made the Lobby, Arena and GZ Tower all zombie proof so that players can take refuge inside those areas as needed.  In the near future, the Market will be zombie proof as well.

I couldn't figure out how to edit my previous post.

I dislike pointing out problems without at least trying to think of some answers.
So some solutions I came up with:
1) If wiki is still accurate, avoid cities when hunting zombies.
2) Do trader quests. Even if you run into ferals, you can often pull them out and go back before new ones re-spawn.
3) plan your leveling based on mining.
4) plan your leveling based on kiting, boost anything that helps with stamina, speed, avoiding stuns, and hip shooting. This includes avoiding the "dungeon" builds and going to places you can easily escape/maneuver.
5) join a group for horde night and suck up levels with as a group. ( I think this works) Let the player with the best loot boost loot.
