    My concern is that the players who struggle to get to level 5 will not be able to ask in help tab for advise. And sad though this may seem, there are a surprising number of people who do need help getting to level 5.
    I can understand the need to combat chat trolls, but it just may alienate quite a few new players in the process, leading to even more new players quitting very early on.
    Other than this, I like the new adventure tabs. Not convinced about using symbols though, might be harder for people to see where to chat. Easy to know to trade in 'Trade' tab than a tab with a scales on it.

    I agree with Kit, help channel shouldn't be restricted by level

    I think we need clarification about the reduction of global channels, unlike most servers on our 3 servers 21 channels are reserved for foreign languages. Reduction down to 10 would mean the removal of support for about 75% of those foreign languages.

    A lot of those foreign languages now have their own servers

    No they don't, that's why they're here: Official channels and languages

    Also, just up and kicking the Greek channel, for example, which isn't listed since a Greek server did come along a while back really wouldn't be fair to the Greek players who've been here for years.


    Most of these options look very cool. There will likely be a lot of tab mistakes to start but that should change with time.

    That said, Very Much +1 on keeping Help unrestricted.

    Among other possible issues that can crop up before 5 there are the level 4 quests that new players ask about fairly often. Having to go to the forum to figure out "Perfect Wood Production" with its "Choose Pinewood in the Economic Overview" and "Choose Pinewood Forester under the Pine Tree detailed view" and "Making Production Chains Perfect" with the first "Have a production value of at least 0 every 12 hours." seems somewhat less than helpful or encouraging.

    I have to agree about help , to often I see level 4 players there who got in problems.
    Not so many problems on level 1 or 2, so maybe for helpchat a minor restriction...lets say level 3...

    Angry

    There are around 30 chat channels in the game and many of them are hardly used.
    Instead of removing the channels have you ever wondered why the foreign language channels are hardly used?

    Because:

    the game doesnt save the global channel so every time you refresh you have to join the channel again. in a game where refresh is a solution to everything this is a big problem!
    the joining itself is made by a command you have to type in that no one knows and channels are marked by numbers that no one remembers! a mechanic from the last century..

    Create a dropdown menu or whatever where all the channels are with names you can identify so that the channel can be changed with 2 clicks and repair the saving of the global channel and things will be different!
