I moderate one of the biggest hardware forums in germany and the announcement of a german client with a german server got many people to download the client and try the game. The result was, that most of them quit playing after a few levels. There is simply no way to quest in a german only group. 80% of the servers population doesnt speak german. The german client itself is useful but baffles new players with incomplete translations. Almost all the questnames are still english. So are the dungeon entrances. The game is already very hard to access for a new player. I think the germany strategy has to be reworked right now.
Another pointer for a rework of strategy is the wayfinder population numbers.
The server is pretty much dead. It is simply impossible to find a group for certain quests. Three nights ago, i had a lfm for von5 up and realised, that only 5 other Players from level range 8-11 are online right now. At 20pm main playing time here in europe. That means i wouldnt even be able to get a full group for any p2p, because one of these guys wouldnt likely have the pack.
