Aloha from the Midwest,
I feel that I may need to drop my $0.02 as well on this subject, what with the noobishness and all.
First and Foremost, of all the people I've met or dealt with in this game so far almost all of the extremely skilled and higher level ones have been pretty nice and cool. Sure, they may have kicked me around like a pimp does to a 2 dollar hooker that fails to acquire his money, but hey, what do you expect? Regardless of that, if I ask a question, most of them have taken the time to answer it. Some people give advice when I fail horribly, and I appreciate that too.
My point is, as far as a community goes, this one is a good one. I've played Maple Story, and I enjoyed it for a good amount of time. However the one thing that got under my skin there, was the kids that would spend 24/7 on the game and get to like, level 150 in 2 weeks or whatever, and assume they are Jesus in MMORPG form. They were bastards for the most part. I also came from FreeStyle Street Basketball. The community there was Elitist as hell for a long time. When the game fully was released, there was maybe 9-10 people that really knew how to play, and they horded the knowledge. I recall making a post explaining why people get the ball stolen if they pump fake, and I had 3 replys in a matter of seconds telling me "OMGWTF Take this down! They don't need to know this!".
I sort of went off on a tangent for a second, but the point I'm ultimately trying to reach is: The community here is good. It's helpful for the most part, and most of the people seem nice. Every MMO Will have newbies. Some people will just get it, some people will need help, and some will fail and ultimately quit. It's the job of a good community(especially when a game is as competitive as this one), to nurture the new players so that they can grow to be a challenge.
