No, that should not be "noobs", I'm referring to wormhole noobs - hoobs. And, more interestingly, where are the organizations and individuals that take care of them? Where are the RvB's, Eve Uni's and Brave newbie's of the w-space world? To whom do I turn if I'm new to the whole w-space and don't have so much skill-points? And who introduces Eve to total newbies from a w-space perspective?
Now, the general idea among us wormhole folks is that you need a certain level of experience and a minimal level of skill-points to even consider stepping into the great unknown. Most corporations that recruit, do so with a minimum bar of 10-25M skill-points. But what about the really, really new ones? Is w-space really meant to be off limits for newbies with just a few million skill-points?
I don't think so.
I think that just as "if you can fit a point and fly a frig you can pvp" is true, I think "if you can launch probes and have enough friends you can explore w-space" is just as true. I think the whole idea of what w-space is all about have been kidnapped by an elitist few, contorted into some only-the-best-is-good-enough bullshit that only focus on the high-end content. When was the last time the w-space "community" discussed C1's and C2's from a newbie perspective?
So where do a three million SP newbie that are really interested in w-space turn for professional guidance? Is there some old w-space vets out there that give some of their time and wisdom to such a corporation? If there is, I don't know about them. If you know about such a group, one that take on newbies with the intent to make the best out of w-space for them, with their limited SP, let me know! I really looking for somebody that a) got deep experience and knowledge in w-space and b) don't tell people to "train for a Drake and then we will talk".
The thing is, I really have the feeling that there's a bunch of content out there that goes almost totally unexploited as it is now. When CCP designed the C1's and C2s, I'm sure they were trying to create something that, for a low skilled player, would be a challenge but not impossible to manage.
So where are the Brave Hoobies?
