Tho I'm not sold on the idea of a 'conspiracy' by a few people,as another poster claims, I have some discomfort at the player base. Most of the time people seem pretty willing to help out a new person - and that's really great! - but this place is a regular 'Drama Queen' of a game. It is a pretty small player base, and I guess everybody knows everybody, except the new people, and there are histories / grudges / drama.
It might be the grind grind grind that makes alot of people drop the game (a big drop-out rate of new people). It's like you're clicking the same five things a million times in a row. One day I was looking at the screen and said 'What the heck am I doing?!' I made some stuff, and that was fun and novel at first, but I really couldnt contribute anything to the whole. There are tons of Uber-players that were light years ahead of me and my contributions were insignificant.
It's weird. I felt like people were nice and helpful and all, but at the same time I also got the feeling that newbies were second class citizens and just sort of tolerated. I don't know if that makes sense, but that's how I felt.
