Will People Stop Playing After Sale
Will this game go back to it's normal non player state after the sale? Will people still keep playing?

Other than when we take the servers offline for maintenance we always have multiple games running. Since we decided to make an online PvP game, we decided it was our job to make sure you always had people to fight against.
Any time we start dipping in population we run sales and promotional pushes to make sure you always have ships in the skies.

I've been playing off and on for a while, and the community is active and dedicated.

There are many active clans on Guns of icarus. I do not see them stopping anytime soon. Depending on time and location = how populated it is. But more than enough full games to keep players happy before the sale, and i know the population will still be active after the sale.

If anything there will be an increase in players because of the sale, assuming we teach and treat the lvl 1's in a kind and helpful manner.

I quite agree. The way we treat new players is very important. Luckily Guns is blessed with many a fine & friendly gamer.

im level one and i asked players for help in mic and almost everyone blocked me, and everyone else told me to hit alt+f4 to open up help menu.

TL:DR guns of ircaus online has the friendest community.

Any game will lose players after sales, however Guns of Icarus has a minimum playerbase of about 350 to 400 players so there will never be any issues for finding lobbies or other players to play with.

Tyrannical: sorry about that, that isn't representative of all of us.

Were you asking in novicematches? Most of the experienced players I know are willing to help. Also, if you can´t find anybody to help you to understand something, click on community and then on community ambassadors. Usually there are some of them online and ready to help new players.

wait, so what u r saying, is that after the sale is done, ppl that have ALREADY bought it, won't play it? so you are saying that ppl will stop playing, bcs the sale is off and they have already probably leveled up beyond novise, against other ppl who also bought it during sale, probably, and that ppl will stop buying it, and ur complaining bcs u will be past novice matches and there will no one to play with, there will bcs u only need to get beyyond lvl 3 to play none novice matches, wjich is easy, i have played 7 hours of it, and i am already lvl 2, and nearly lvl 3, and to get to lvl 4, i can play against ppl who bought it late in the sale

if you play on no novices you'l find experianced players who will still play i recommend being level 3 they say level 4 but you can pick in the server bar so non novice players prob wont stop playing plus there is many clans out there who still havnt stopped playing and they owned it before they sale

I have been helping new people since i got the game, I am always the captain and I let new people feel at home with the game as part of my crew. I don't play alot that much though.
If you are new to this game I would be happy to accept you in my crew.

my actual gameplay with random new players:

We all started as a new player.
Instead of scolding them, teach them on what to do instead.
