New Player Help

Recommended Posts

This may already be in effect but if not...

 

For any new player we should :

1. Send a welcome email

2. In that email send a link to a section of this site outlining what to do STEP by STEP on getting the game up and running

3. Include a like for an example on character creation

4. Include a link to troubleshooting or issues

 

What could be included a section for who in game referred them.  This could be used for in game  bonus crap for the referrer.  

 

Just some thoughts,

Mim

Hello new player MiMir ;-)

 

1, Technically what your proposing is automatic spam , most email sent today are opt-in

not against the idea, just pointing out one big flaw with it

 

2. A.) DEV war december 2018 ?  I proposed , because of a player request at the time, that a Beginner section was added to the forum.

You see a beginner section on the forum ? 

 

B .) Making a beginner guide on the wiki and pointing to it might be better , due to A

 

3.  

 

 

 

https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=earth+%26+beyond+emulator

 

 

4. See my point #2

 

I asked ,  again for a player request if a buying skll point option could be added and if they could offer skill point on referal.

Short and polite answer was No ... I spare you the medium and long answer.

I include here a new recuit scrit I made for Builders inc with new player link and guides

 

Hello Builders , excellent year and good day to all , 

As you may have noticed , someone made the mistake of giving me recruiting privilege ( the fools icon_biggrin.gif).

So i have been experimenting with a how-to script for Builder Inc recruit to pass on to them the few

simple and not really helping things i Know.

 

Pre - recruiting discussion :

1. Ask if they want to join a guild in private without nanming builders Inc

 ( they made some request for help , say they lack some type of support , remember playing in a guild in live,

they are supper helpfull on newplayer channel or market, played with them in game and they are really nice ).

2. They play a jenquai explorer as first toon , cause we know the crazy one choose the JE first.

3. They are willing to learn and exchange tips 

4. They can stand me dying or me getting them killed , without wanting to kill me or committing suicide.

5. They are here to have fun not build an empire and be the defacto dictator. ( that's Raideman job ;-) )

6. They appear mature and to be able to hold there liquor/smokin ( legit or not ) and I don't mean the item in game.

Added after fourth recruit : **Get a pen and paper and record name and main toon name**

 

The first step in recruiting :

 

0. ( optionnal but highly recommanded ) at some point if they are newbie offer them some credits with the tip system :

/tip nameofrecruit toon amount. I usully send 250k , unless Hawat /freeride ( thks BI Obama icon_biggrin.gifis there and send them millions 

and make me look like a scrooge.  

1. Hello and welcome to Builder's inc you UNLUCKY player. 

2. You got recruited into Buider's Inc the best guild on the sunrise server period.

3. We do a lot of high level content and big raids and are the big guild on the server

we are also part of the big guilds raid rotation.

4. Ask them to register on Guild website ( here ) at http://buildersinc.guildlaunch.com , they need a valid emall

- they can write as much or as few as they want about themself

- They should preferably use there main toon nickname as there login ( still there choice ) 

5. ask Them to download or join on teamspeak , https://www.teamspeak.com/ , this serve multiple purpose :

a) you see that they have the raid communication software installed

b) you get to know if they have  a mic or not and there level of confort.

c) you can show that you don't care if they speak or not ( preferable but not required)

d) you see if they can install , follow instruction and at what leve what type of hardware they use and there qualification to make changesl

e) you see that they can multitask and change windows 

f) you can share links by copy pasting to them

6. You ask if they have multiple toon and want them recruited.

a) shows there level of knowledge about www.net-7.org

7. You tell them about The boss : Raiderman , make  a joke that he may show up today but no promise

and to say hi , if they see him.

8. You tell them to be nice to others in the guild , except Ravina , because he his from Alberta , Canada and smoke too much oil fumes

( get's them talking about where they are and seing that we can be a fun and sarcastic bunch sometimes.

9. You talk about the advocate position a bit , just because Ben his such a cool advocate and as a really good multi-lingual voice on teamspeak

look out for the nice germanish voice on teamspeak. 

10. You try and introduce the player who are online in a good light ( i know sometime it's hard , even more when i am there icon_biggrin.gif )

11. Some dev are in the guild as secret agent , dont bug them more then I would.

12. Other dev pop up in the guild teamspeak channel, sometime say hi or not and be extremly nice , don't bug them.

13. If you see Shadowalker , That is one of the coolest guy in the guild who can do almost everythign but is mainly THE WEAPON guy.

ask for best weapon an weapon setup , he does everything. 

14. Introduce discuss multi-boxing or not here.

 

----------------

This conclude My first Step , please feel free to rip it to piece , add or cry about it , remember I am new at this recruiting for BI.

--------------- 

The second step in recruiting ( the mutual sharing of links : )

 

1. Ask them if they know about www.net-7.org database when they are logged in at www.net-7.org/database or from the menu there.

2. Share the www.net-7.org/wiki link with them.

A) I usually go into how we have some genius editor in the guild and give newton ( new recruit to BI ) as an example

https://www.net-7.org/wiki/index.php/Special:Contributions/Ganemala 

3. I tell them about www.enbarsenal.com and say it's outdated bu still as relevant info.

4. I show them the armory http://enb.gearlist.co.uk

5. the google doc with a good list of mob drop locations https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1H5Yk1GsXnlq_fB1-ICK_MQUfmE-rwZdfWzzmnDd-rXQ/edit#gid=0

------------

this is the item database part of sharing links ) Feel free to add to it or cry /discuss relevency 

------------

Then I share some content related links :

1. High level content on the wiki :

2. Wikia other wiki : 

http://enb.wikia.com/wiki/Earth_and_Beyond_Wiki

------------

this is the other content database part of sharing links  Feel free to add to it or cry /discuss relevency 

 

------------

Then it's on to maps and destination tool :

1. The map of the universe with an NPC search helper :

2. the destination tool helper by race :

http://www.bhughes.com/destination.htm

------------

The fourth step in recruiting ( the faction link : )

 

The facion system :

http://www.earthandbeyond.ca/game_info/faction.html

quick explanation about what it mean , diference between chavez and red dragon as example.

 

The fifth step in recruitng: multi-boxing ( or the amigo / traint effect  )

 

1. Introduced earlier but going into more details.

2. Ask them if they multi-box ( use many toons on same computer or use multiple computer.

3. Use Amigo /traint / other multiboxer as an example of multiboxing.

4. explain the benefit of running multiple toon at same time

5. explain the basic of group exploring xp leveling up.

5. the basic of your own controlled group of heros/warrior/healer/explorer.

6. Alt-Tab is your friend.

 

The sixth step in recruitng: getting them up to equipment standard :

 

1. Some player come with there own 150 and high gear, most don't and are newbie to the game.

2. Offer them there first tour and to upgrade there equipments

3. show them how to go get parts and use / search the databases.

 

The seventh step in recruitng: getting them some powerleveling :

 

1. Some player accept other refuses so it's up to the individual recruit

2. usuualy ofer a tour for some explore point , some combat escorting , some trade run discussion

 

The big step in recruitng: getting them to comeback :

 

1. I usually mention the zeke mission as something eveyone is discussing and his fun ( and they believe me icon_biggrin.gif )

hide agrppa under the rug :

https://forum.enb-emulator.com/index.php?/topic/2822-zekes-epic-builderminer-missions/#comment-21813

2. Tell them not to be afaid to ask question  about the game and for help that is what a guild is suppose to be about.

3.  discuss the 3 new class :

https://forum.enb-emulator.com/index.php?/topic/7262-how-to-create-the-3-new-classes-npc-skins/

4. Mention the public guild vault and that officer have a guild vault too

5 Ask them to comeback !!! icon_eek.gif icon_biggrin.gif 

----------

This conclude my recruiting script and what I offer / say when i recuit new people , if your not mentionned by name

it's because it's a big guild don't take it personnaly , you guys do so many thing and all are great ( even ravina ) and

it's a recruiting script not a complete  BI Bible. feel free to express correction / addition / request of removal wich I

will pobably ignore , yes i make tons of written word errors ( deal with it , cause I wont ).

Disclaimer: Mistakes will be made, some stuff will be what I considered 'beta'. Mis-spellings. Posting helps, prefer PM's will organize stuff later, just want to get down for now and slowly or quickly organize/adjust. Thanks for reading this. Hoping to turn this into a overall new player guide (Have been informed admins can change titles later). Enjoy. :-)

Pretty much what I was looking for.  The issue is, how many new prospective players do we loose due to no directions? I have been talking up EnB but think those that I have sent this way were intimidated by the forum.  Let's get them in game before they are exposed to the likes of me. :)
