I started playing Spiral Knights on July 31, 2011. I have many hundreds of hours in game and I play regularly. GulliverBFG is my first knight to reach Rescue Camp, and them cross the Chasm to Haven about a half hour later. I have learned to play more slowly since then.

I played solo for most of the year, soling everything up to but not including Vanaduke.

I like helping younger players, when they want to learn. If they just want to waste my time, then I often quietly let them go on their way. I like to learn from other knights as well. For such a simple game, there is a lot to learn about tactics and strategy.

Newbie fun fact

"Newbie, not Noob" The term stems from it origins way back. We would call the new players, New Boys, which truncated to Newbies, which got shortened to Newb. I am not sure when the contemporary players started spelling that Noob, but I am sure it just caught on when more players kept using it that way.

Originally, this was a neutral term applied to a younger or less experienced player. Only later, did some jerks turn it into a slur. Now when I see a player sling it about as an epithet, I know their character and they lose my respect. Name calling is hurtful, even when done in jest.

Think of it this way, we all start out as Newbs, but not everyone is a Noob.
