Developer notes: 
As you may have noticed, we've embarked in a project to create a better First Time User Experience.

While some of these updates may seem like a nuisance to some of you, imagine starting the game anew a knowing nothing about it.

We are aware that we need to make the game friendlier for new players and as such we welcome any feedback/suggestions you would have concerning this project.

Some things that, maybe, would decrease the rate of players leaving the game is.

 

- Start giving, permanently, prices to damage in TOP 5 battle damage and kills. There's a lot of rage quits because of the so called steal BHS. That would minimize that effect

 

- Packs should be always available. Not in specif dates. That would be an improvement to eRepublik owners economy. But why I'm I willing to spend oney on the game, need a certain pack... and it will be only available in 10 days... oh hell, I will play something else.

 

- Air Industry / philosophy needs a boost... not only leaderboards... perception, new weapons.... when you will implement that?

Do you really think new players will continue to play, when they see how much pay4fun this game is?

If there will something that can approach new players to the older ones.

 

The "other" game has special "free" training grounds for the new comers so they can get quickly a good strength.... that's a way to retain players!

 

AT this one only visa can give you some advantage!

That's one for old(er) players.
Most of eRepublik's new players never reach that "Ragequit" stage you consider to be a problem.
Free "stuff" helps once you decide you want to play a certain game, no ?

There us no "Air strength" to "catch up on". And yet ... :)

Also, since the current focus seems to be on the First Time User Experience, does that mean we'll soon see language selection somewhere that isn't the initial log-in page? 

 

Can't count how many times I've had to log out just to change languages due to clicking on a non-/en/ link.

junk the maveric pack, deeply discount the training centers for new players coming in for ground units only. There is aserious gap and feeling of hopelessness for div 1 guys that come in to fight off peeps with packs, as well as the time it takes to catch up on some of the lower level peeps there are in game. make it easier for them.
