Hello Illyrians! My newb mail has been a huge talking point for years now. I have changed it many times, and no matter what it says, people complain. I have exhausted all my efforts of writing one that can be sent to new spawns within Mal Motsha or to players who settle within our land claim not knowing they are not welcome. The mail needs to inform them of our land claims: Mal Motsha, Keshalia, and Kul Tar. The player needs to agree to move the city, and not settle anymore within that specified area. There is no time limit to move, but there needs to be an effort to move that we can see in their growth chart.

Here is the current mail being sent out:

Greetings!

Welcome to Illyriad! I wanted to make you aware that the regions of Mal Motsha and Keshalia are claimed by The Eastern Empire (TCol). We realize that the game spawned your first city here, and that you had no choice. We will give you plenty of time to build up and exodus out. All we require is a response to this mail saying that you agree to leave and will not settle any cities here. 

Thank you!

Zenorra

You write what it should say, and if Grombrindal and I choose it, we will give the winner 100 million gold!

Have fun!

Dear Bubbleless heathen! You encroach on Mal Motsha and Keshalia, lands governed by the bubble fearing men and women of the Eastern Empire (TCol). At this moment bubble war horns can be heard in the distance, the sound of bubble armies marching to bubble drums draws closer. Do you dare invoke the wrath of the bubble gods and remain here? or flee to safer bubble zones to sacrifice bubble goats in peace. The choice is yours young bubble. Hail Bubble, Hail TCol!

Perhaps only this edit
"this mail saying that you agree to leave *in due time* and will not settle any *further* cities here. "

Beyond that, its just a very few extremely bored people drumming up drama.  They dont realize that they are destroying this game by fearmongering.  Newbies can look at all the villification of tcol and the lack of much usable land in the north and decide its not worth it.  The fact is that account aggregators like Yuki and the relevant goldfarms are killing this game.  There are 200x200 portions of this map that have only a handful of active accounts where people can roam freely; but its not obvious because the map looks so bloated.  Any accounts that have obviously not been actively used for the past year should regress back to the earth.

Also, using Bots to gain an advantage over others shouldnt be tolerated, and Petitions shouldnt sit for over half a year.

Let's not turn this contest into a debate.

Appropriate greetings for your specific time zone!

Welcome to Illyriad!  I wanted to make you aware that the regions of Mal Motsha and Keshalia are claimed by The Eastern Empire (TCol) alliance as our homeland. We recognize that the game spawned your first city within one of our claimed regions, and that you had no control of the situation. 

We will give you sufficient time, resources, and advice to plan and prepare to relocate elsewhere.  We can even help you find an outstanding alliance that matches your desired game play!

We believe that the future success of this game involves new active players.  Relocation is what most players do shortly after beginning in the game in order to be in a region that is less congested, provides access to desired natural resources, and the protection of allies that they desire.

All we require is a reply stating you understand our expectations and are willing to work with us to build your budding empire in another region of the game!  Communication is key to making this cooperative effort a success.

Thank you and have FUNN!
