I agree with Debaser. I really cannot see you missing out on much content with something like 3x rates and I think it will be vital to the survival of the realm in the early months where it will need to build a playerbase and then perhaps it could remove the 3x somewhere down the line? There are other realms and the thought of a 1x rates grind to 60 when people already have fully levelled characters will be a deterrent since they cannot guarantee to themselves that this realm will be any better or successful once they hit level 60.
That being said once there is a stable population of an acceptable size then perhaps it should be made 1x? I dont know.
May i point out, that this thread is about WHAT RATES WILL PREVENT YOU FROM PLAYING THERE and not what rates, in your opinion, will be the best? There are at last 3 discusions about what xp rates will be the best. If you want to add here something to the topic, write why XY rates will prevent YOU from playing there.
Good point Aieris my comment was a reaction to a chain of thought sparked by the issue raised in the title but I do not think it is wildly off topic to point out the one you would prefer or to defend making one of the choices given.
But in the interest of staying on topic I would still play at launch with anything under 7x I think so yeah... 7 or above would turn me away personally
While that does ring true, I find Blizzard has overdone it by a large margine.
To the point where WoW isn't WoW anymore. They made it too player friendly, greatly deminishing many of the feelings I got from playing WoW in the first place. I think if you call something 'WORLD of whatever' it should have the feeling of enormity, especially in the achievements like getting max level etc.
That being said, I think as far as XP rate wise they nailed it in TBC.
And completely fxcked a lot of things up afterwards.
So my vote for 1x or nothing still stands, although I do get what people are saying and that we should keep in mind that we do want/need a big population within the servers and if playing around with leveling rates BELOW 3x is needed I will accept it
True but if you invert his poll then you would get the result of what players don't want, it is like asking. Although i answered instinctively 1x before i noticed the fact it still remains the same except 1 additional option and that you can select multiple rates.
do you wanna die ?
do you wanna live ?
in Chero's case it was "live" and here it is "die", a person who wants to live doesn't wanna die and opposite like that you can invert the votes.
note: try and take a look and compare with Chero's poll and you will see how it is inverted :smile:
