Hi Caeldras, welcome to Faeria!
Trust me, you are not the only one clicking +1 Faeria instead of making a lake After playing for a little while though, you learn. But something to make it extra clear would be very good for beginners.
The matchmaking experience will get better as more players join the game. Currently there seems to be most activity on european day/evening-times.
The statistics/overview is something that has been requested by a lot of players. Currently the main focus will be balance and bugs, but I belive something like this will be implemented further down the road.
I agree with Ramora that there are plenty of streamers currently (atleast compared to how it used to be). If there is noone to watch, you can always check out my videos
If you want to watch for learning purpose I would also suggest checking out my guide,
See you in the game!!
