    This blog post is about
    1 What are new players

    2 What are the problems

    3 How to solve the problems

    4 why the new players wont stay

    new players

    What are new players.
    New players are normally players that are new to Minecraft .
    In this case new players are players that are new to Empire
    New players do not now about the many
    Features of Empire Minecraft
    They dont now about the custom mobs events and promos not
    to forget
    Chances to fanila minecraft
    The new player is the future of emc

    And they are good for the server

    The lack of explanation

    New player join Empire Minecraft
    For the custom features and many different tings., Somtimes they join a friend or find it randomly. And wen they join there is normally no explanation about the features of empire minecraft.
    The only ting that gets explain are the rules.
    The new player normally plays for a short time before just giving up.
    Almost all occasions the new player do not get the information they need
    To understand what empire minecraft is
    Some of the players i have seen they spawn ask qestion and leave before getting a ensure.
    The lack of explanation is a concern

    The problems

    Empire minecraft tutorial.

    Is outdated it only exsplains the rules of empire minecraft.
    And not all the custom features
    Promos events and great community.
    The tutorial looks like it was made 8 years ago it is outdated. The new players of today are different from the new players that joined in 2015. The tutorial shut update with the player and not put in a corner to gather dust.
    The Empire Minecraft tutorial needs to update and chance with the player.
    The tutorial still needs to update
    The tutorial needs to be a place to exsplain new players waht empire Minecraft is all about not only the rules also the features events promos wild and waste outpost plot world and more

    Studying the problem
    And the solutioN

    new players join most of the time complete the tutorial wen most players complete the tutorial that does not any ting about Empire Minecraft not even the custom
    features. It only exsplains the rules.
    So wen players complete the tutorial
    They spawn in a world that is made of dirt. Most of the new players will go explore find somting they cant break it and just leave most of the time they never come back

    the solution

    I think the solution is updating the tutorial
    And add somting like custom achievements that exsplains Empire Minecraft in a fast and fun way
    They so new players learn about the waste and the wild custom items events and custom mobs.
    In a controled way. The future of empire minecraft is based on new players we need to think how new players can stay longer and will play longer.

    Why new players wont stay my thoughts
    I think new players will not stay on Empire Minecraft for a long time
    Becouse of the lack of explanation
    And the players not knowing what to do
    I think if there are more events and more custom content on a regular bases so players will stay and keep playing

    What does the empire minecraft community think

    1 I asked these questions
    What do you think about new players

    2 What do you think empire Minecraft can in prove to keep new players playing longer

    3 do you think the tutorial is the problem

    4 what do you think is the problem

    I inter viewed number of players
    To understand what the community

    The Self the turtle boy interview

    The Caroline interrogation
