So, fun times.
Naked, I spawn into the world. My gorgeous, apparently precious rock and I forge out into the world. In the first literal 30 seconds, I see a few other less then clothed persons around me, and decide to see if I can make it in the world. I move down the the hill I spawned on, and proceed to encounter: “a wild douche”. The following 30 seconds followed something close to this:
A wild douche glares at you
A wild douche equips a shotgun
"A wild douche says over voip :* “Hey fag, give me your shit”
A wild douche uses shotgun : It’s super effective! (I die)
(again, repeat 20+ times)
Toss in a few minutes of running around, finding some mineral nodes, harvesting, and dieing right after to the above, and you probably have a similar story or 40 you could identify with.
SO, the reason for the post: I actually had a friendly player run up to me (and my rock of awesomeness that everyone’s apparently dieing to get their hands on), say “hey! newblood! Welcome and have fun!”, drop some pants and a few resources so I could build a shelter (glad I’m not the only one that feels I could use some boxers at the least), then wished me good luck and ran off into the night.
I have to say, it felt like it was a rare experience and worth sharing as it took me greatly by surprise.
Does anyone else have a story where another player was anything but a prick, and actually created a memorable experience they’d be willing to share?
