Don’t Be That Guy: The Noob-hater

"An online community without noobs…I mean, “rookies,” wouldn’t be that bad-ass utopia of competitive gaming many people dream of. First, you surely understand that less people playing online games means more time waiting in the lobby for a match. Second, and more important, without newcomers the online community would surely implode because—you might not be aware of this—people give up on games all the time," writes GameCola. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Halo 3, PS3, Xbox 360)

while we can before they become "Noob Terminators" themselves.. you can say we're doing them a favor, training them before entering the Jungle and facing Predators.

Imo there are beginners and rookies , those not knowledgeable on a game and actually learning the ropes ...

and on the other hand , "noobs" , people that dont know the game likewise , but act like idiots and dont even bother trying to learn something .

Beginners/rookies/noobs are the most important feature for multiplayer. They are the ones who provide the much needed points for others to rank up quickly. Giving free points and provide little effort for the dominating team that usually have experienced players. Noobs will the ones who will be visiting the hottest sniping points, the static guns, the vantage points that experienced players know are death traps.

How else one can rank up in multiplayer if it weren't for noobs?

We all started gaming once as noobs. No one was born with a controller in their hands.
