I don't know how to make a poll in new forums, so move it if it's necessary...
Why do I think we need to remove the 2x 5x and 10x stones?
It's practically impossible for new players to level their toons without buying plvl.
Why would they want to start spending real money in a game that it is free-to-play just so their toons can achieve lvl 80? They don't know if they will like the pvp system, the community, the events, etc, they shouldn't be forced to pay to someone to lvl them up just to try a new game.
We have many 80s that don't know how to play their classes because they never killed 1 single mob in game.
There are no grinding parties, if you are new you are forced to grind alone, sit in CR/AR until level 80, or buy plvl.
Removing those stones would make maps useful again, would increase the flow of new players, the ones that are not willing to pay to level up won't quit so fast.
I also think we should remove the exp when the level gap is higher than 9 levels as we had before. I know some people sell plvl to sustain their toons, but I think it would be better if the maps are populated again, new players can stay in game, and people learn to play by actually grinding their toons.
If you disagree I only ask that post your comments respectfully.
