I got my stepson started playing tonight. I gave him an old account of mine. I made a few ground rules. He could use the one empty slot to make whatever kind of character he wanted and couldnt touch anything else until he got the feel of playing. I also gave him this website which really makes the game in my opinion. I told him he wasnt allowed to ask me any questions for one day. I remembered my first few days of playing and the excitement of it all. The way people would help etc. Some of my best memories were staking my own claim in UO in those early days. The UO community has always been one of the biggest draws of the game to me. I was surprised to see what was going on when he was trying to get the simplest of help. He did meet someone early on who gave him some decent started gear which was very cool. After this new found friend logged off, my son was asking in chat for help on where to go to work his swords skill. In return he had people telling him how wrong he was doing his skills etc., without even knowing what his secondary skills were. There was even one jackass trying to tell him to come to felucca. I dont mean to over react but if this is the way Legends treats the average new person, we may as well close up shop now. All the kid wanted to do was find some crappy little new monster to fight. I will help him along of course but I didnt want to take the new experience away from him by throwing all kinds of gold to him etc. Im just asking people that may have watched this to step in next time, or at least think twice before spouting off a line of junk that will deter a new player from sticking around. Sorry to sound so harsh about this. I just still love legends and want to see us have a future.
