I really like that you make it easier for the noobs. I remember it was very annoying, all the fails at the beginning (also was hard to accept how I was being killed by a chicken, so fast...I mean....a chicken??)
My boyfriend, who just started playing the game, said that without my help, he would have not have kept playing, no way. Not every noob gets such help, so I think we don't hear how these fails affect new players cause those have left long time ago.
Now the more he plays the more he likes it, but the start was off putting.
So there, my 2 cents.
