I understand numbers are a bit low but Alts do nothing for the game besides artificially inflate numbers.
When we go to tablets/fb (which should be our main goal) it will work against us. It creates an unfair advantage for them and is off putting for the new players we should be trying to entice.
How would the game have to be redesigned if people were able to log more then one crit at a time?
When someone new starts playing a game and see's a player base sub 100 they arent going to bother wasting their time, the only time the game hits any descent numbers (30+) is when there is a special event and its still people only being active when bosses spawn, sitting idle and watching youtube vids isnt being active.
If this game goes to an app based game or fb i feel the current player base will dwindle even more, sure you will get new players but with no one around from the old player base to show them the ropes, fb sucks and anything involving a tablet would need major game update like i dont know graphics, text muds are best left for people using a computer. If this game does update to either of those above platforms there should be an option to still play on your puter at home, like a seperate server.
What attracted most ppl to Ember was it was similar to another game we all played, being an app and really limiting peoples time to playing even more i dont think is going to help.
