Tutorial Completion Statistics, November 2015
Today I run some queries on the tutorial quests data to find out how many players were starting the tutorial and at which quests they were dropping out:
It seems that the culprit is the first one, The Prison Clean Quest. Almost 62% of players that starts the tutorial doesn’t finish this quest, and 93,12% drops out on the first and second step.
We can notice that the Crafting Quest seems a discrete killer too, only the 86% of players complete it. Maybe it should be simplified, keeping the bread crafting only and removing the cheese 4x crafting.
We know that Cleaning the Prisons it’s an easy income for newborns, but cleaning them for 1,5 to 2 hours and recleaning them 3 times is too much and can get very boring.
Maybe there are other reason for quitting, but I decided to reduce the steps of the Clean Prison Quest to three; maybe this will make more players continue the tutorial, we will see in the next months.
Changing the logic of a quest in Medieval Europe is not complicated, the tricky thing was understand how to migrate the players that are currently doing the quest that needs to be changed. I decided to cut corners and complete the quest for them granting them the prize and advancing them to the next one.
The Tutorial is very important because it gives a first impression of the game to the new player. The quests in my opinion should be simplier and more exciting.
Do any of you have suggestions on how to enhance them? Ideas for exciting or fun quest?
