After spending some time this weekend levelling Marauder and Squig Herder from 1-7ish as some fun with my family, I had a few thoughts.
The first thing I noticed was that my server (Darklands) which does not really suffer from low population, does have almost noboody at the low level zones.
Now I know that they have made some changes to one PQ in each zone and they are making changes to allow for lower levels of people iin zones. My topic isn't really about the changes.
I suppose my idea is to have servers that when you roll a new character toon, you automatically start on. Maybe there is more than one. But anyway once you reach 10 or 20 you have a choice to move on out. I know this affects Guilds and friends. But when I was those low 1-15 levels personally I wasn;t doing those things with a guild or my friends.
It was all about numbers for me back then.
I am not suggesting implementation methods or anything like that, just wondering what people think of the idea. Dedicated starting servers.
Love it... hate it? Discuss. Its helpful if you have encountered this issue of ghost towns in the starting areas.
