That is brutally bad. What was the training information like? Was it even possible for a naive user to become less naive without losing their ass a bunch of times?
I remember the tutorials as focusing on easy mode, and treating it as the thing to start with. With Charles refreshing my memory about how easy mode behaved (thank you), I think there was plenty of time for a slow and cautious user to come in and perhaps question the nature of easy mode before they’d done any damage to their account. Certainly I used it a bit at the start, and still recovered nicely.
Hoping that your users will be slow and/or cautious isn’t an ideal plan, though.
