Re: yet another dead island coming to obsidian!
 
How does the population of recently opened islands correlate with a lack of new players?

As I said in the OP, empty islands make the game look dead. People who come to check out a MMORPG want to see activity.

 
There are fundamental problems beyond which island pirates call home.

Oh, there certainly are many worse things, but that doesn't excuse GH going through extra effort to make things worse.

It isn't just that regular pirates aren't setting these islands to be their home, but that is still important. Players also tend to put their labor alts on the island with their stores. An island that has so few players almost certainly doesn't have much business going on, and the low "minimum assets" of the stores backs that up.

Triplet will be the 4th colonized island that spawns sugar cane, out of a total of 9 on Obsidian. Sugar cane is a REAL pain to move, so if the economy of triplet isn't strong enough to use all that sugar cane, then people will have to waste time shipping it to where it can be used. And the price everywhere else will go up.

Having to ship bulky goods is a real problem on Cerulean, there isn't any reason to hurt Obsidian.
