    In Support of a Friendlier Community

    The following is from Tycho's (Jerry Holkins) post on Penny Arcade earlier this week. Some words of wisdom to take into your next trial:

    Games like LOL or COD or DOTA or HALO (which I don’t think needs to be capitalized, but I was on a roll) have reputations for being primitive societies where humans are instructed re: hierarchy at the edge of a blade. Except I have bad experiences literally everywhere I go, in every game, and I don’t even talk. I think people see it in those games because they are the most popular games on earth, and people play them. It’s not a localized phenomenon.

    The “Veterancy” on display is more a mindset than an expression of a specific skillset, and it’s not hard to find it. You can’t actually be a veteran of a quasi-game that isn’t out, but you can absolutely be kind of an a**hole, and you can drape your behavior over the wicker framework of your profound incredibility which never really seems to be on display. Definitely be sure to use terms you and your friends agreed were cool, and then behave as though they’re internationally recognized IEEE designators. That’s sure to crack the towers in bottom lane.

    Good read. Especially liked the HoTS reference. That mindset appeared in this game too, if you go back through posts even to early closed beta you'll see people complaining about newbies.

    Even now the sentiment holds true. The game has been open to the public for less than two months.
