"Newb"

Recommended Posts

People who make alts to pretend to be new players and who subsequently beg for attention/money are annoying. You're totally new...by making a ranged pure with a full set of the best available armor/weapon/necklace at your level and have not trained anything besides ranged and hp. 

 

Seems legit.

 

I guess it makes them feel good about themselves. They're still annoying to me, though.

Thoughts?

Yeah these newbs-in-disguise bug me too. It's not like it's even against the rules for them to transfer themselves money anymore, if that's what they wanted for their new account...

People who ask for money and give nothing in return are pathetic losers, simple as that.

 

I know it might be harsh, but there is no better way to put it.

 

Being at a low level isn't an excuse, if you are at a low level and don't know how to make money, ask for help.

I agree, people asking for donations is disgusting when it's done because people just want the cash. I know some people who have had 9/10 of their bank donated to them, and they still act like they're a good player even though they take the free stuff all the time.

 

Sure, if you're going for 200m all, and people want to give you money to help you, that's fine, but not if you're just going to beg like a [bleep] for money, that's just wrong in my opinion.

<*reads thread, sighs heavily due to word misuse*>

 

I see someone has forgotten about the other word, "noob".  Such a difference in spelling identifies someone who's already been playing a while, but still commits actions which annoy other players instead of paving a better path for themselves and everyone around them.  Seriously, folks, there is a difference.  Please use the right spelling, because seeing such misuse actually makes some people (such as myself) feel like their brain is being raked like a nail on a chalkboard. :ugeek:

*AHEM*

 

Sorry to call the grammar police on you Devnull, but actually 'newb' refers to a genuinely new player, and 'noob' to someone who has been playing a while and is just incompetent, or appears so. And in the OP was using the term 'newb' to refer to players on fresh accounts masquerading as genuinely new players who needed help, therefore, pretending to be newbs. At least, that's how I saw it...

@Arceus, I was saying they should call those nuts by what they really are, because these ones they're ranting about are NOT genuinely new.  It's better not to dance around the terms in these situations. :|

That's why "Newb" is in apostrophes.

Just call them Smurfs. That's what they are in League, Dota, Starcraft and CS.

I personally would find that insulting since I'm a huge fan of the 1980's animated show.

No clue which one, but well, status doesn't really matter imo, begging isn't really nice, personally wouldn't call them losers though :P

 

Also keep in mind that the first player to 200M all got there by begging as well XD.

But there are better ways to gain money fast.

 

Like chopping yew/magic trees and sell the logs for example.

 

That's not what I do since I don't attempt to make as much money as possible. But my point stands, there are better ways.

Personally I don't know what's worse.

Some dude impersonating a new player, begging for stuff.

Or a real new player who just up and thought "hmm, screw all these useless skills - I think I'll stalk shiny armor people and ask for free st00f". 
:D

Beggars gonna beg. It's always been like this in Runescape, in the likes of which I have never before seen in any other MMO.
