I actually did this a couple days ago on Apex Legends. I was paired up with a person who recently started that day. I have been playing it a while. I’m still trash at it but I enjoy playing it for kicks. The guy was low on health and didn’t have anything since he was new. I offered a heath kit to him, feeling proud afterwards XD
The players in squad are very helpful if you make your self known as a new player. It’s vital to be helpful to new players in order to maintain a player base.
Those people aren’t born cool, they are usually forged in the fires of hell and want others to have a better experience than they did.
That God damn vandal.
Veteran players in FFXIV are pretty cool, then.
True. Before my WoW days, I logged on to Star Wars Galaxies on a friend’s account with a new character to try my first MMO. Within 2 hours, I had tens of thousands of credits and a small house from a person that took me under their wing and helped me. The best thing about it? They were French and couldn’t even speak English so we couldn’t communicate. Their name was “Chkrys”. This was over fifteen years ago and I still remember it.
To this day, paying it forward is something I still do in games, especially MMO’s.
Pretty sums up the community of r/fo76
I recently got back into Old School RuneScape and the amount of helpful people is super cool. Just the other day I was fishing and the damn dark mage kept spawning in the area and attacking the new players. Without fail every time one of them spawned, a higher level player would stop what they were doing to cut them down real quick.
*shakes head in 2b2t*
I once took part of an R6 match where we had a newbie. We spent that entire game teaching that newbie the ropes and how to adapt in combat when the environment changes over time
Shout out to all the cool guardians who helped me through my first run of Kings Fall in D1!
I will forever remember Wolfy-2186 on bo2
I met a cool person like that, it was many years ago on a creative Minecraft server, I didn’t know how to use world edit, I asked in chat and he immediately answered and then spent the next hour helping me with all the basics
Big thanks to the folks online in Monster Hunter and Earth Defense Force, some of you are saints of the gaming world. Really cool when you see someone just helping folks without expecting anything in return.
Shout out to all the cool people who helped me get into Monster Hunter. One of the best communities I met whenever I first started some 2000 hours ago.
Rust people just shoot you in the head at first chance if you give them anything
Rust is toxic
I just started playing DC Universe online (just came out on Nintendo Switch)
I was being helped by a pro. I suck. They really are born cool.
Funniest example of this is when I am giving out tips as the invader zombie in Dying Light.
As a beginner in DOTA2, I completely agree
I don’t get why you’d flame a new player, everyone’s got to learn somehow. It’ll be quicker and less painful if you just help them.
Same with stuff in life e.g the gym, don’t laugh at someone for doing something wrong, show them how to do it properly.
Disagree in Rust
World of Warcraft, a week after release. Back in the day we didn’t need no fancy quest markers and the quest giver would just tell you to find the fancy lion “around here somewhere”. So “Where is Echeyakee?” became a meme in the chat of The Barrens region.
And since you were stuck in this big ass zone for quite some time you could literally see players insulting newcomers for this questions even though THEY got it answered by me three days earlier. Like some ppl forget that something isn’t easy/completely clear the moment they manage to do it for the first time.
When you just start out and see a mk 2 oppressor heading in your direction
I once traded a sand hawk in bl2 with a random dude online who said that he didn’t have any good guns. He would give me some other guns in return for the sandhawk. However the game crashed. So the dude asked me if I still wanted to trade. I told him that he could keep the sandhawk and the guns he wanted to trade. In return he invited me to a private session and told me not to look his way. When he left, he dropped about 300 guns. He said that it was a thank you gesture. That was a good day.
They’re usually the people who were spammed to hell by ‘pros’ whenever they were newbies, and would just like to see other noobs have a more pleasant, enjoyable time.
“uninstall, you noob.” is the friendliest thing you can hear in the League.
so no one in WoW then.. lol
If helping noobs is cool, consider me Miles Davis.
I can’t even begin to say how many people I sherpa’d through Vault of Glass, Crota’s End, King’s Fall and especially wrath of the machine. I ran that raid 20 times in the first day.
Brevs giving out 1 mil like its smarties
I was trying out fortnite for the fun of it sometime back. This player who found me just aimlessly cutting a tree down didn’t shoot me. Instead, gave me a gun and did that fortnite dance and went on his merry way. Whoever that was, thank you stranger! It made my day.
Reminds me of Syrmor and Jordan in [VR Chat](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmXEOLlX-Hk)
I love helping out in Warframe. That game can be tough on newcomers
Did my first raid on Destiny because I met some people who were willing to bring my shy ass in. Great guys, still talk to them to this day.
This goes out to all those generous Mesmers willing to port people to JP chests in GW2
I just got Fallout 76 and there was some guy I passed who was like level 156 and he just stared at me as I crouch-walked past him holding a machete
So literally the whole warframe comunity.
When I started playing six siege people told me to kill myself, uninstall the game or maybe the first time I played counter strike and I didn’t know which button for diffuse
Not Apex tho…Solo mode hasn’t even released but I’ve been abandoned so many times already…
