Just an idea that doesnt necessarily encourage new blood, but it might help to get some of the new ones to stay more than 5 mins. How about this as an alternative for new players.. Instead of setting your daily reward for energy or stamina, how about they were able to set it for Captains. Im not talking about the 1000 hired guns, if they want them - they still have to buy them, but the normal captains, that some of us were lucky enough to be able to complete using invite codes, but new players have zero chance of achieving. It might only be 1 or 2 a day, but it would give people a chance, that over time and with enough commitment, they could have the same basic 1000 Captains as everyone who got them via codes and add me threads. As I have said before, Im sure the lack of any prospect of being able to get 1K captains turn alot of people straight off the game. This way they still have to grind it out to get the captains, and it would be a task that is completed in several months (6+ minimum I would say), but at least it is a task that people can see actually is achievable. I actually think this might be one of my better ideas.... but Im braced for the obvious pitfalls Ive missed?! Have at me ya scurvy dogs!!! PS - I originally made this post in a thread about new blood for Kong which suffers badly from lack of players, but there is no reason why it should be available to all platforms across all the games.
