In a group orientated mmo finding other players is an age old problem.
Player mindset never changes. The popular method seems to be using general chat. Yes, spamming chat for hours. This method sucks, yet its widely used.
- Players don't always catch rolling chat.
- Players are intimidated, and fear NOT KNOWING the content, then simply don't volunteer.
- Acronyms, the three letter abbreviations that new players don't understand.
Here's an example:
I'm playing LOTRO and I just randomly logged in to get this example of rolling chat.
SS T2 farm 1 boss 5/6 (tank)
Hammer 1/2 any level welcome
Can anyone do Minas trith with me
What the hell does all this mean ?.........I'm not asking someone to explain LOTRO to me. I'm saying this is intimidating !
This makes players play solo, This makes player stop playing. This is EVERY MMO !.......What to do about it?.....I don't know.
