I don't know if you can choose which kingdom you are in now but ten years ago when I played it you could not. The only way to play with people you chose was to trade accounts which was of course illegal within Utopia but was done by the top kingdoms. I suppose the idea was good as it meant everyone had a fair chance (if they stuck to the rule) and the elite players wouldnt all be in one alli but in practical terms it was just annoying as if you should lose your account for whatever reason then you can never go back with the same group of people which is sad.

So back to why the player base here is dwindling?
At least that's not true. Only if you compare it to 6 years ago or so.
There are now more players than 1 year back and 2 years back. I don't have statistics from before that.
Why not veterans, instead of staying all together in the same ally, they just split in new and differents ally... i mean some veterans is ok, but all veterans in the same ally is boring: all the years is exactly the same: 3 (or as much 4) allies rule the game because old players r in it... ohh yeah in thos 3 allies they r always 2 new peoplo replacing someone missing, bahhh that is not improvement!
Bootcamps? no, bootcamp concept is different because u r just training people that u don´t really know, and maybe u r not doing ur best for them to love the game... u r just teaching the game, and as u have ur own ally, u maybe don´t be “just in time” for tips or advices.
But FriendCamps sounds different: like is something urs and u can teach not only the way of playing, moreover u can teach the funny things about the game...
But we should do something all together...
I know that is not possible for all of us, but think that if only 5 veterans can recruit a whole (or almost a whole) ally the game will be much funnier. And 5 players is not that much! the problem is to recruit at the same time, right?... and with “Infinity” running is more difficult... but maybe we can say: ok Age 38, 40, or 50 we put in play those new allys... How? we can create a new post while vets can trully say if they r recruiting and when their teams will be ready to start playing... after reaching, dunno, 3 allys? they start all together...
Just some thoughs... Am I crazy???
Some help or any constructive idea???
A good idee is to allow some selected “older” player to have second account in bootcamp for teaching players...
we had some new guys in the alli, we thaught them how to play, and they formed a new alli themselfes. maybe all should do that, teach new guys, keep them motivated and active and then let them form an own alli
The guide here is allot better than other games mainly utopia so the training aspect is easy for any1 actually wanting to learn and spend the time with some guidance from a experienced player.
I think (and may be wrong) that for the newwer players they get frustrated about being attacked all the time and killed...or even just fame raped, all the time because some alliances are happy to do this instead of focusing efforts to challange for the #1 spot
Yeah the guide is really good, i use it allot to learn the newbs
They either love it from then on or hate it and leave!
That's how it was in my noob alliance could have been a 1off but that's from my exp.
What I would find better instead of a full shake up of alliances would be a sort of buddie system where a new player is assigned an active vet as a mentor. Give it a more personal touch
Maybe we can send a link to the new tribe for a topic in world forum “mentor Topic”.
where they can find several name of tribe who can help them
