Homecoming apparently not dying

As for this OP of this topic:
I will begrudgingly point out that for many of us (myself included), perhaps from the inflation of prices, has meant we have to work more.  Also it's gotten into peak season for many places of business anyways.  The short of it is for several people in the community circles I frequent on Everlasting, I just don't have as much time to play as I would like.  It's not because people are abandoning the game per se.

 

Now what I thought this topic do would be to finally give us an updated numbers by archetype and powerset, but nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnooooooooooooooooooooooooooo that wasn't what this topic was.  #disappoint

*sigh*

I want to know what the popular powersets by archetype are, darnit @Cipher it's been two years!!!   Please?  Inquiring minds want to know!
(also which powersets are under represented %-wise so we can get more of them created, or see what needs improvement)

Hey, I resemble that remark!

 

You seem to be more civilized and eloquent than the more vocal on the Excelsior chat channels.

If someone posts a reply quoting me and I don't reply, they are most probably on ignore.

Some of them even know that I have them on ignore.

But that won't stop some of them from bullying and harassing people, because some of them love to do it.

It's who they are. There is a group of them that have banded together to do it. They think that it is acceptable.

Ignore is a tool to improve your gaming experience. Don't feel bad about using it.

new players do seem to be replacing the older ones that are losing interest or taking breaks.

This is what I see happening, evidenced by the kind of Questions posted here and Help Chat in game. New people playing for the first time just keep showing up.

" When it's too tough for everyone else,

it's just right for me..."

or there are Sappers, Man I hate those Guys...)

My measurement metrics are more subjective, but possibly more relevant. 

 

Not enough players => I can't get a team when I want one.

Just the right number of players => I can get a team when I want one.

Too many players => Team's fill up faster then I can respond to the LFG request for players.

 

Right now Excelsior bounces around between "Just the right number of players" and "Too many players."  I've not seen it dip into the "Not enough players" range since it came back.

The population appears to be stable, but new players do seem to be replacing the older ones that are losing interest or taking breaks.  Strangely, weekdays seem to be more active for raids than weekends.

 

Anecdotally along these lines, I'm seeing increased demand in kind of basic, beginner-type IOs and decreased demand in high end level 50-type IOs.

 

Which is a real shame.  You people need to step up your high end purchases, what with instant PvP and Build 2+3 being around.

@Cipherhasn't posted since August. But I implore everyone that wants those numbers to go post in that thread requesting them again.

 

Like I did. Several times. 🙂

I will never understand the "only buffs, no nerfs" crowd. Only being satisfied with an "I Win" button is no way to balance anything.

Approved.

Okay.  First “The Farmer and the Cowman,” and now this?  Are people just trolling for @Oklahoman likes now?

 

’scuse me, all.  I’m going to go see if there’s a post where I can reply with “The Surrey With the Fringe on Top” and be on-topic.

I've already picked all the low fruit, in my opinion, but "Oh What a Beautiful Morning!" and "Kansas City" are still available as well.

I'm trying to work up some lyrics, but so far I'll I've got is:

 

Trolls and Skulls and Lost gonna scurry

When I take them out with my Flurry

When I take them out with my Flurry with the Rage on top

 

That's it.  And, really, "Flurry" isn't the power to strike fear in the hearts of bad guys.

If only Flurry were a melee AoE attack instead of single target. 

 

Then if you slotted an Armageddon proc, you could take them out with your Flurry, with a singe on top.

Whirlwind would make them scurry...but it doesn't scan.

I run a lot of content on Everlasting and usually check everyone's globals when I do.  I've been seeing a lot of globals I don't recognize, and a lot of new players asking for Hami/iTrial instructions.

I made this exact observation to my girlfriend yesterday.  I was on a team of 8 for a respec trial and I always check the globals to see if anyone I know is on the team.  I did not recognize ANY of the 7 global names and commented on that fact.

Originally on Infinity.  I have Ironblade on every shard.  -  My only AE arc:  The Origin of Mark IV  (ID 48002)

But many veteran players repeatedly say that we don't get any new players and that anyone who plays on Homecoming or Rebirth must be a veteran!
