Often when folks join Empire Avenue they have interesting expressions about how hard it is to get started. Some have likened the beginning with EA to trying to drink from a fire hose. A new player sold the shares of someone who had been helping him creating an unfortunate encounter with the more senior player. Smarting from his wounds, the newbie told me he thought starter pistols fired blanks. starter-pistol

EA fortunately has added tons of new information designed to help new players understand the rules of the avenue. We even have very excellent videos that provide amazing assistance and an awesome new wiki. I worry just a tiny bit that all this well intended information might contribute to the overload most new players experience.
