Dear LEET Owners, i want to share with you the tips i have learnt through my experience with Servers.
Spawn makes a first impression for a new player. If it is built poorly, it gives the impression on a Lack of Passion for the Server from the Owner. However, if it is built with fantastic designs, New Players will want to stay on there a little longer. Use Your Spawn as an Attraction for the Players! However, Do you know that Nice builds are not always the most important factor? If there are many nice structures around, but there are no directions to indicate where the Player should go, etc, Players will get lost and feel frustrated, leading them to quit after awhile. So, here are some few pointers i feel that it should be implimented in your spawn.
1. Make it Organized
No Player wants to meet a spawn where there are no directions and they can get easily lost in! This will frustrate Players as they want to go into the wild and start building, but your spawn is “Preventing” them from doing so. Make a simple layout. Decide where you want the Rules to be, where the exit will be, and most importantly, GIVE DIRECTIONS. By doing so, Players can easily locate where they want to go and start enjoying what your Server has to offer!
2. Bait them!
Place a few minigames at the spawn to keep them entertained! Things like small mazes or parkour works great. It will let them have fun which may give additional points for them to stay in your Server for a longer period of time!
3. Give many informations, not many but MANY
So what if your Server has nice builds, games and so on? It does not matter if the Players Don’t Know About It! notify new players about your best juice that you can offer! You can also give other info like Ranks, Rules, or other places of contact. Y’know, players can still bond even outside of your servers!
4. Have decent builds
But of course, the sole purpose of Mincraft is about building, so show some decent builds! If you are not a builder, there is always Youtube! You don’t want to see a wooden house as a spawnpoint right? You want to see Majestic Castles infront of you! Towering Mansions! That is what gives New players a good impression too!
I hope my pointers can improve your Server =) if there are any erros, typos, or pointers you feel should be added, feel free to share it down below! Thank You!
P.S i learnt these points AFTER i built my spawn, so pardon me if my Server’s current spawn is contridicting my points =)
