It's ok to be a Noob.

Everyone was a noob at one point in their life whether they want to admit it or not.

No one was playing games in the womb. Everyone had their first time playing a game, and odds are most of them had to get some practice in before they were any good.

Most people forget that.

Lots of people like to put others down if they're new to a game because they're not good at it.

How stupid is that?

You can’t expect someone to be good right away. Everyone learns and gains skill at different games at different paces.

But for some reason, noobs are hated. If you're new to a game and you're not doing as good as the rest of your teammates, odds are they're going to be mad at your or insult you.

Insulting people never accomplishes anything.

Don't worry about them. You're doing your best and you're playing to have fun.

You're playing to have fun.

So don't let any naysayers get to you. Do your best and have fun.

Laugh at them if they're taking the game way too seriously. What's it going to matter in a week? A day? An hour? It won't matter much. What will matter is that you had fun. 

If you're doing your best don't worry about your score. If you get frustrated by the other players, just take a break and come back later.

Its ok to be a noob. We've all been there.

Just do your best.

Enjoy your game.

Enjoy your life.
