I do feel a better summary could help
Agreed. The “WTF is MetaGame” article is really outdated and frames MetaGame extremely narrowly, as being about breaking down information silos… It was also too long, a 10 minute read itself.
I’m writing a new one here, would appreciate some feedback.
45 minutes is too long to figure out whether to invest or not
The decision to invest should definitely happen before reading for 45 minutes.
Reading for 45 minutes is the first investment, and part of the reason the bar was set so high was so that new players entering the game feel already invested by the time they enter.
The landing page + the 5 minutes “WTF is MetaGame” should be enough for people to decide whether they want to spend time or not. Then, they may proceed by completing the first quests, or even better, by finding other ways of contributing directly.
That said, I do think we should tone it down to “6 Pillars” to begin with, after we publish the new “WTF is MetaGame” which should also be 50% less reading time
What’s the difference between Levels 1, 2 and 3 listed in the quests? After completing quest 1 I was promoted to MG Player, does each level result in a better role on Discord and access to more channels?
Yes and no. By the time you’re level 3 you should probably already be in the silver league and have a better role on Discord. The idea was that earning a certain amount of XP results in higher player level, but right now, those levels aren’t really connected to anything & don’t mean much.
Why were the 3 quests decided to be the 3 introductory quests? Are there desired outcomes / goals of each quest?
It actually used to all be one giant “becoming a MetaGame player” quest, but it was getting too long so I chopped it up to 3 quests
The main desired outcomes:
- Person feels like they finally understand the MetaGame and the “why” of MetaGame.
- Person feels like they’re already invested & a part of the community.
- Person already spread the word to new potential players.
Hope this post isn’t taken the wrong way, felt it would be important for me to share honest thoughts
Oh man, I really hope more people will be like that. We’ve created a really friendly environment here & I’m actually afraid that sort of atmosphere will prevent people from surfacing criticism.
