New Guide

they need to make a new guide just for gen, cause all the newbies are gonna be confused as hell when they read about personalities and they never chose one.

I don't think that the personality thing warrants a new guide. I mean, how hard is it just to ignore the Personalities bit? It's almost the same anyway. And that's why there are experienced players out there, to teach the newer ones. We've also got Pip Squeek at UT, so I see no problem

It's really confusing when there is no proper guide for genesis. Newbies might end up using the worng guide and having the wrong concept in the game. Maybe should just make the genesis guide more visble.

It isn't that hard, most people who play Gen are experienced and are playing/have played on WoL before. Also, if they want to play on Gen the least they could do is read the changes

But we must not forget that there are also newbies joining the server.

If they don't care enough to spend 5 minutes of their time to read the rules of the server then why should anyone goto the effort of explaining it to them? Newbie or not.

Agreed. If you're going to play and want to understand, you should take the time to read what you need to know. It's not like you have to do an immense amount of digging or something. The Genesis description page tells you everything you need to know about how the game is different from The Guide. Anyone who can't make an effort to read that certainly doesn't deserve special treatment.

If a new player is going to leave because I won't babysit him and hold his hand, then good riddance, the game doesn't need players like that. If he wants to take five minutes to get himself somewhat educated and ask me intelligent questions, I'll bend over backwards to help him grow into a better player. It's all about attitude. People asking for a guide for Genesis generally don't have the right attitude, so I have no sympathy for them. If someone wants to learn how to fish, I will happily teach him. If he wants me to give him fish, I'm going to throw him in and see if he can swim.

If up to individual, whether if they want to lend a helping hand to those who are new. Pointing to them the guides and helping them will aid them to grow much better than letting them pick up themself. You have been once a newbie too, and if you are in their shoes, would you think the same as now?

sorry, i still think some of you guyz are missing my point
what i meant was ,the normal guide stands out so much in the main pages.
the Gen guide is like completly hidden. Also the main guide doesn't give an direct link to the Gen guide, nor does it say, This is only for WoL.

The gen guide can only be vaguely found by clicking on a line of text when you attempt to log into Gen server.
Then there is a link to the Gen Guide.
