Everybody's a new player
to a particular MMO at some point, even if grizzled vets would like you to believe that they were already at the level cap when the cosmos came into being. I think it's easy to forget how complex and mystifying these games can be to a fresh set of eyes, especially when one is coming into the game long after launch.
That's why I always applaud an MMO that puts an emphasis on supporting newbies with helpful advice and even structured mentorships. Two examples come to mind: Fallen Earth
has a terrific help channel that's staffed with volunteers and CMs on a regular basis, and Anarchy Online
had a player advisory group that roams the beginner zones looking to help lost players.
So which MMO do you think has the best newbie support system?
