I just got off a 1-flag sampler 3v3 game where, no kidding, 3 of them are brand new as of yesterday. 1 hadn't played since 10 months ago. And the other was less than a month old.
And I've been in some CA games recently where we've had to explain the rules to new players.
Is this a summer influx? Many appear attracted to the sampler games, though idk why. How do we keep these guys around?
