To those of you who became experienced players during the beta period, guess what: you were actually having training wheels on.
The real difficulty of the game is to survive and thrive when you have helpless people depending on you. I’m not talking about babies (though they fit the description for a few minutes), but about inexperienced players who don’t know enough to survive on their own and who have to be shown and taught. During the beta you could rely on your family members to pull their own weight from the start, but that’s a rare thing that will only happen sometimes now. Most of the time, your helpless babies will actually be helpless.
So our challenge to you expert players is this: Do not keep your training wheels on, by avoiding the new players. Instead embrace the true level of difficulty in the game and help other people master the game. Isn’t that what expertise is for?
Also, when do we get to see 50+ generations, huh? There are more than 50 people on the servers as I am writing this challenge to you, so the raw materials are available now…
