all online games are like that. you expect new player to match up against experienced player?? ok go play rock paper scissors!
Honestly I've been bringing my irl friends to play dro with me but just after couple of days or weeks they quit. And their main reason of leaving pretty much because they were tired of hunting, doing quests, etc just to get at least "at the same/common level" with the community (especially most of the players are elite, I even think 80% active players are veteran by seeing recent bg and hhh players, I might be wrong tho). They didn't expect to match with experienced players, no, even with the same gears they knew they'll fail. They simply wanted to be hero, elite, get eweapon, common good gears (I said good, not amazing i.e Hades Card, Libra, etc) just so they can play equally and have some fun like us. And seriously, most of us so lucky because baphomet doll on most of ours period was way so easy and cheap but now it's hard and expensive for new players.
So basicly I think it's not about the easy rock paper and scissors game, it is about the main reason of people playing a game: They want to have fun. It's not like it should be easy easy, but I just think many people especially newbies find it really hard to reach the same level with common people (or veterans, since most of active players are veterans) and they gave up because what's a game without joy?
Another thing, I hate to say this but there are many servers that offer much opportunities for newbies to play equally with veterans (still not easy easy to reach, but not as hard as in here). And there my friends are now, playing an uglier server than this great great DreamerRO.
No hate just a thought...
Edit: I know how good that many things implemented for newbies i.e Returners Set, only 200kill for eweapon (which I believe kinda hard for newbies on the current situation) reward system, etc. However just share a thought.
