    Unhappy Growtopia Too Hard On Newbs?

    I'm talking about newbs, not noobs. To know the difference between these two, click on the following links and read the top definition:
    Noob: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Noob
    Newb: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=newb

    Let's get to the point.

    Chapter 1: Nobody Wants to Help Newbs
    Growtopia is not as welcoming as it can be to new players. Let's be honest, we all have like a thousand things on our priority list over helping new people. Thankfully, the world START helps newbs so we don't have to. But there is still things newbs need to know about Growtopia: 1. There are scammers everywhere, 2. It takes a lot of time and patience to become a pro, 3. Caution: this game is addictive.

    Chapter 2: Hide your world locks, hide your rares, and hide your dirt, 'cause they be takin' everything out there.
    You probably got scammed once, did you? You may have scammed someone once too! The thing about new players is that some (or most) of them are naive. They tend to trust other players too much. They don't know what kind of people play this game. From my experience, 5% to 20% of the Growtopians online are active scammers. It can be very hard for newbs to tell who is who. This is how the world STOPDONTDROP becomes useful. Not many new players have heard of this world, so it will need as much exposure as START.

    Chapter 3: Have Patience, Young One
    What kind of players are more likely to quit this game than any other? Those who been playing for at least a year, or those who been playing for a month or less? Players who played for a month or less are more likely to quit, duh. Why is that? Because many of those players lack the patience/don't have enough time to farm and trade. I'm not complaining, but I been playing for 2 years but still don't have a diamond lock. I still have the patience to earn one. Farming is the most basic way to get rich, but will take loads of time and patience. Trading will also take long since only 1% of players online are interested in buying newb products. If only farming and trading was made easier for newbs (and me)...

    Chapter 4: You Can't Take Back Time
    This game is designed to be addictive. If this game is interesting enough to you, it could take hours of your life (you can see how many precious hours you wasted by clicking the wrench on yourself). When newbs (or anyone) has too much fun, they may experience the symptoms of neglecting needs, urge to keep playing, and worst of all, procrastination. They can get sucked into the distractions of parkour, spleef, and other worlds when they are supposed to be farming/trading, therefore playing more hours than they should. Growtopia should help newbs remember they have lives.

    Chapter 5: The Overall Idea
    Make this game a bit easier on newbs. My brother, Dragonboy21, doesn't play much anymore because he finds this game too hard. I don't know how it should be done, but it can be done.

    Noobs and newbs behave differently. Have you checked the definitions of both on urbandictionary.com?

    There are immature people out there..... Many actually, But there also mature people. Growtopia is known bad to Newbies because of other people aka "PROS" are constently bragging about how many "World Locks" or how rare their "COOL ITEMS" are sometimes people are harsh this happens also happened to me when i was Level 14-39, To be honest it still happens..... Newbies also find it hard to earn world locks because their is no guide on the world START how to get a world lock. But they might find it in the shop which cost about 2,000 gems. Well the game works that way, Until they get 50 gems and buy a small lock to lock their world and get to experience the game more until they learn to socialize there will always be people to brag about their stuff and call you "noob" well there is one thing we just need to do in this situation : Enjoy The Game and hope that there will always be a person to lend you a helping hand ~ Sincerely REDLINE

    Have a SPLENDID Morning/Evening/Night
    Bye

    Sir. Noobs and newbs are two completely different players. Looks like you refused to look up the definitions on urbandictionary.com. Noobs are players who go around trade worlds, saying "donate me" or something. Noobs also refuse to do anything for themselves. Newbs are players who are actually new to the game and wants to get better. Newbs ask questions about the game and how to play it frequently. The point is: newbs can/will become pros and noobs will stay noobs forever. Get it? I hope you do. The kind of players you are talking about are only noobs, not newbs.

    There was a time I decided to choose out one newb and "raise" him. I brought him to a random world and I gave him a wl to lock it. Then, I taught him how to farm basic seeds sell them. After some time, he came back to me with ripper wings. I was so happy I thought he at least knew the basics of farming. But you know what.. he broke the wl in his world and used the wl to buy ripper wings from a vending machine /fp

    I gave up raising newbs since then

    Newbs don't know how the economy of Growtopia works yet. Here's the best way to raise newbs. They are like raising children, you have to be VERY specific with them and tell them who's boss. Make sure you tell them to ask for approval before they make decisions. If they make a decision without you that turns out to be bad, they learn the hard way. Also, teach them to be patient and not greedy. Impatient and greedy newbs will become noobs instead of pros.

    Sometimes you need to learn for yourself without the assistance of others. Growtopia isn't too hard on newbies, because apparently, everyone is a newbie.

    It pains me to say it, but you're right. I was a newb for a very long time because no one wanted to help me. So I started learning things for myself when I go to reference maps and started using the wiki.
