There are alot of new players from christmas and even more newer players for whatever reason. Yesterday i saw two friends (both lvl 7) anxious to reach lvl 10 by the night, other than that i keep seeing lvl 1-10 and the christmas players should be in the 20s and up by now.
Is there a massive learning curve? I was watching some gameplay vids and it looked kind of complicated. Lol.
It's not horrible. But there is a slight curve. Try and find somone who knows the game or a helpful clan and you will learn the ropes in no time.
It's a lot of fun if you're not super picky. You can find a lot of useful information here on the forum. As well as very many varied opinions. Good luck with your decision!
