I brought 5 new people to Ryzom - 14 days - and no one is playing
missing meaningful content for new players

- Together to build something (must be a real vision of joint building since the foundation of the Guild)
- Ryzom without a Google (ballisticmystix.net, etc.) can not be played

- trial time has an unlimited limit (bank, house) can not significantly test the game (exploration, harvesting, crafting, performing tasks ...)

there are only real killing monsters

backpack full of quest items from the harvest (small egg, insect larva, etc.), the new player does not understand the difference, worries, leaves the game

PLEASE .. Focus on new players

Plaminek --

"Meaningful content" -- what do you mean by that? There are missions in Silan and Welcomer missions in each of the capital cities. There is easy harvesting and crafting. There is also freely given advice in UNI channel. What additional content would you suggest that would be "meaningful"?

With respect to your other points:

Ryzom without Google can most certainly be played! I played for three years before I discovered bmsite.net. That site is cool (very cool), but it isn't necessary.

The F2P "trial" has unlimited time, and (partially) limited resources in order to encourage players to subscribe. I fail to see how unlimited time does not allow a player to test the game. There are players who are doing great things as F2P "minimasters".

If the new player is worried about his/her pack (and I understand that), they can ask questions and get answers.

I agree we should focus on recruitment and retention. What specific suggestions do you have? Please do not just complain. Help make it better.

I do not agree. Maybe they look for something else? Did they do anything else than grinding? Been to any event? Done any roleplay? Been part of OP war? Did PvP? Occupations? Worked on your fame? All known Atys regions explored? Got all achievements?

Question is... why did you establish your guild? What was your goal and program?

I am not using any google services to play. And you really don't need BM, it just makes things faster. And you say there is nothing. What about knowledge so you can use BM less and less? :)

I don't understand, there is no trial time. You talk about f2p/unsubscribed account? Honestly, there is only one real limit about f2p, inventroy. When you mean it with crafting seriously.

Plaminek

No, that is not true. And in case you introduced only this to your friends, no wonder they left. Stupid grinding is boring.

On one side you say there is nothing else than grind, now you say new players are lost and confused...
