This should be a must read for anyone who plays online:
And after reading this, I have to admit, that in many aspects, I really am a noob as Vic pointed out in his post.
Other noobish behaviors I may display are getting killed over and over in similar situations.
For example: This morning Debuff killed me in Isendeep several times and I kept coming back to die again. That can certainly be deemed as noobish behavior, especially from Debuffs perspective.
But wait? It is about perspective and we all measure success and challenges in different ways don't we?
Not getting upset when you die in a pvp zone isn't very "Noob" now is it? Also, being a lesser accomplished player facing an opponent that is Overpowered to start with and watching them use three disappears, pot and burn cooldowns just to get a kill on someone that they know is weaker? That I found entertaining..
Me fighting an accomplish Burg and hoping to win is a futile effort, but I find other measures to challenge myself and Debuff along with many other Freeps provide me with tons of laughs everyday.. Especially when I don't release right away and they Corpse Jump me. That's another feather in my cap, just knowing I rate a good jumping gives me another nice little chuckle..
I also find it interesting that the above definition points out that it's often the case that a real noob is usually the first to call someone else a noob. That they tend to call out and belittle others in open forums and enjoy making fun of others to their so-called homeys.
So in wrapping up, I guess in some ways I am a noob, as most of us are at times. As a matter of fact, I wish we had a NOOB title. That would mean more to me than any of the other Titles that Turbine let's me have.
