I was completely lost when I joined the site. I looked at my games played when I first joined and holy crap what was I doing. I played games and settings and got smoked. That being said I could of just gave up, but I do love risk so stayed but maybe a lot of players are just leaving.
The yarn craft social network ravelry has a user created and run welcome group. When new users join the site a member of the group is assigned to them. They send the new user an email explaining some key elements to the site and offering to help them out. A similar thing could be done here. It's a small solution that doesn't rely on lack
I'm telling you I have played on a few sites and just recently found a new one. There are you tube videos explaining the game play. This site has a lot of good features however I don't think most of them are for the average gamer. The maps here are hard to figure out epically when a CC player has it down pat. It is explained it the forums but you have to get there as chuck said you join and want to play. As I did I played nukes and I nuked my stack first go. I played assasian and killed someones target. Ya I can play the hell out risk but if someone just explained all these things I'm sure more would stay. There are the SOC and mentors but we have to get new players with them as its hard to join and just find all that.
