To be fair your issue occurred with a kingdom and not the entire server, so to say the server has this mentality is unfair. I know for myself and my counts we welcome anyone to come be a part of our community. The concern during DSS was picking order and ensuring community members were able to get a spot within the domain.
I think many fear randoms coming in and trying to upset the community which has been cultivated, in some areas for years. I believe most would welcome new folks as long as they presented themselves and showed no signs of trying to upset the apple cart.
True, it was the kingdom, not server.
But see that's the issue... we are called "randoms" as you say ...only because we are not part of a group who know each other. Is CoE made for those preformed groups who have the collective funds to purchase kingdoms or for all?
I'm not complaining but trying to show that this will always be an obstacle in MMO's and in CoE … the Solo vs Group players and in my experience, in my kingdom, on Luna it was obvious (my previous post).
And I completely understand I am a Count who has a Duke and King above me but, should I have to fear being zerged from the very beginning just because I don't know everyone and they may think I will "upset the apple cart"? No, nobody should because of choice or because they didn't/don't have the luxury of being a "pre-made".
I hope this didn't sound sarcastic or paints me as having a negative attitude....I don't I was just giving my experience in my kingdom on the Luna server.
Just a prediction... the "randoms" (I'm not saying they won't form new friendships/alliances-most will) will be the majority eventually on all the servers, they will be the backend money makers for CoE. Not the pre-made teams. Something to think about for the "pre-mades".
