I found a new expression that I am very proud of: a Denoob!
I guess you don’t know what that is, right?
Well, a Denoob is a Denigrating Noob. It is a player who, instead of enjoying the game, getting gears, pets, recipes or whatever can be fun, prefers to denigrate others. It might have a highly negative impact on players who aren’t sure of themselves and do their best to get geared.
Personally, I always have been defending the victims when I see (or read) some player harassing them. And that was needed not that long ago.
Imagine that there was such a Denoob in Tol Barad, on Steamwheedle Cartel (Alliance side) yesterday… well… Tuesday the 6th of August.
It is no secret that I bought the guild <Warriors of the North> a long time ago.
When Nimrasil and I started on WoW, we were in a guild called <Bloodlust Eternal> (pretty much inactive, only two members today) and even though it was an okay guild back then, then there were too many things we didn’t like much.
For example: New member is coming in. We say “hello” and “welcome” and his first question would be: “How do I get tuff out of the bank?”.
Then, the guild master would promote him to a level so he could take “tuff” out of the bank, let him do it and eventually demote him a bit later.
When Nim and I first started to play WoW (roughly we started one week or two apart), Blade’s Edge was the server Blizzard was recommending to new players. I had originally Horde and Alliance there.
After a while, I moved (or deleted) my Hordes from Blade’s Edge to Turalyon (for PvE) and Stormscale (for PvP).
Our alliances staid on Blade’s Edge and very quickly, we didn’t like this realm very much, but we had time to get some friends, there. Many were in <Godless>: Doedancer, Lycyn, Luzerei and many others and we had a lot of fun together. Blade’s Edge became bearable to play.
After a while, we stopped playing WoW, Cataclysm was a catastrophe.
When we came back, the last week of December 2012, we found that there had been some clean-up in Blade’s Edge: People weren’t that terrible as they were when we left, but it is not really our style.
PvP is still terrible (Alliance side), there are many bots on battleground, more than there were before, and in fact, these bots are playing better than some of the players (just to give you an idea).
The last couple of morning, they came in small groups in Ironforge to kill AH or bank or guards. This morning at 05:30 and yesterday morning at 04:30.
Maybe they spawn here about once a day?
Yesterday, it was real pros a paladin healer, Charmas, a warrior, Passive and a Death Knight, Bárbs. They were wearing Wrathfull set and seemed quite used to work as team. Loads of experience from Arena, I guess.
When I arrived at Ironforge to do the Brewfest quest, they were here and an Alliance was already dead because he, strangly enough, couldn’t solo them.
