This month, Bree cajoled me into giving Star Wars Galaxies Legends a try. The rogue server is only the second time I’ve ever played the MMO itself, and so I’m a little more than lost it all of its sandboxiness. But what’s that? BEEP BEEP BEEP! It’s Bree’s dump truck of knowledge, backing up to unload an encyclopedia’s worth of SWG knowledge on my poor Mon Calamari’s head.
Actually, she’s been great at answering any silly question I’ve had and has even offered to deck me out in all manner of goodies (I politely refused, preferring to make my own way). But it got me thinking about how veteran MMORPG players will often bend over backwards to help new players get acclimated to a title.
Have you done this? Today, share a story or a general outline of how you’ve been an ambassador for your game by easing a new player into its depths!
