    Land, totems, and the coming launch - My thoughts.

    Currently I feel that the land open to us is to small, the influx of new players much like my self have eaten what little space was left that the beta players didn't cover in the initial rush. With more and more players coming every day to Xsyon ( which is wonderful) the land offered, and ability to place a tribe totem in an area which offers at least a few of the necessary starting resources is slim. I would suggest to push the mist back and ease the burden on newer players as well as the community as a whole.

    There has been a lot of debate about replacement of old totems, I won't get into it but as an aside I do think increasing the amount of land available at launch would quell the rabble quite substantially. More land means new areas for newer players to discover and decide they prefer.. a perfect example is the 904 area which while open now is on the edge of the mist. If this area's mist was pushed back and a starter area was applied it would be a good starting point to ease the land rush strain we are bound to see on launch day. There are several other very good candidate areas for mist removal, the Washoe lake area and north of Squaw.

    I understand this might be a hefty request and as such I don't place any expectations that they will be considered or implemented. These are merely my thoughts on how I would try to ease the tension when it comes to launch day.

    i wpould agree there is a need for more land now since the recent influx. The review on mmorpg.com may only add to this. The review would have better suited us coming out in a few weeks!

    A lot of those areas are unsuitable for someone to place a totem , they lack resources and land suitable to build on. I understand many people will suggest that not everyone will be able to place on or near junk, but I do not believe that is an adequate response to people desiring a location near a nessecary resource. Junk is going to evaporate very quickly when the game launchs and securing a location where you can harvest some of it is absolutely nessecary for a tribe.

    Edit :
    I have spent days exploring , so its not a question of me just not understanding what is currently available.

    Perhaps a restructuring of the starting areas would allow for a more even spread out of the tribes?

    It might , but I believe that to be more difficult than just pushing the mist back a bit and plopping an extra starting area or two down. There is definately a need for zones to have multiple tribes ... but as it is now there is a tribe on every side of most locations which doesn't make much sense to me.

    It could be as simple as taking the existing starter point and spread them out better. If you look at the map, we have 3 point with in one square and the rest within 2-3 squares. Which makes no sence considering the size of the map. We all don't need to spawn at the lake...

    There's way more suitable land to build than most people think. Yes, some of it is not very resourcefull, but talking about lack of suitable to build land? Grab a shovel and explore terra forming a bit.

    Lands value is determined by the resources avaliable to it, the mountain areas which I was commenting on not only don't have access to those resources but also are on land unsuitable to build on. Terraforming the hill of a mountain in order to place the basic foundations for a tribe is not an acceptable rebutal.

    I have also spent countless hours terraforming, and I asure you its not as simple as planting a totem and "grab a shovel" ... it takes finese to level a plot down, many hands, and many hours to "build out" an area suitable to base at.
