Did you not read, or just ignored the previous "this is not a WoW game"?! Is it that hard to comprehend that a game actually has to be played in order to conquer?

You, sir, (with comrades) is what makes the gaming industry as sad as it is today.

If only there was a way for these new players to find out what to do.
It doesn't have to be that hard.

People have not been toxic to you in this thread, at least not by Salem standards,
you cry about hypthermia because it's too hard for you, while you refuse to accept what it is meant to be and do,
disregarding how "good" the implementation of that is, it does what it should, as you proved.

If you quit cause you lose a character, especially a brand new minutes or hours old character then Salem isn't the game for you. If you cba to go through the tutorial more than once then Salem is definitely not the game for you. Saying that hypothermia should be removed so people don't quit is like saying you want to quit life cause you have to wear pants. On a practical note, if you're having trouble inducting newbies, maybe don't try during a cold snap.

Incase you guys didnt read. Change the whole idea is to change hyperthermia in a way where it lowers humours instead of freezing. Inb4 oh no youre the bame of all games and that just isnt salem. Players i have introduced are the type to handle salem but first impressions are ruined by hyperthermia. People on here acting like doing this would destroy the game.

Inb4 first impression of salem should be that kind of difficulty. Its not a difficulty its a nuisance.

In case you did not read:
- everyone here is being pretty polite to you (for Salem forums standards)
- your "idea" is not considered to be an alternative as it is just meant to circumvent the actual intention of hypothermia
- saying people you brought here are "the type to handle salem" but quit after a few hours due to hypothermia is highly contradictional
- you insisting to know what is best for the game, is a foundation to earn you much here, but definitely not friends or approval

By salem standards who needs friends or approval. I guess it speaks for itself if the game is dying.
