Noobs may be nooby, but they are having more fun than you. Everyone was a noob at some stage, and tell the truth - It was a fun ride.

Why You Are Better Off Being A Noob.

Being a veteran, the game isn't as interesting as it used to be. There's nothing more to explore and create. You have already mined your first diamonds, made your first house, and had your first pet wolf in the game. There's no more fun experiences that you can experience.
Yes, being a veteran is quite positive, it is good to know all the key aspects of the game - but I think not knowing and not having a good understanding of the game makes it better.
You don't know what to expect - discover new ores you never knew, come across amazing biomes and waterfalls, or just amazing mother nature.
Survival as a veteran, is quite boring. But survival as a noob opens the gates to a new world. Discovering the world that surrounds you.
Being an elite, you know and understand how to do everything, and nothing is new to you. Nothing more to discover, you have done it all. The game starts to feel boring, because it is familiar to you.

I wish I could be a noob again, not know how to do anything, exploring caves for the first time, finishing your first house, mining your first vain of diamonds, oh how I miss those days. Nowadays, nothing feels special to me. I know it all, I know how to do everything, It makes the game nowhere near as fun if you were to be a noob.

I wish I could somehow erase my memory towards minecraft, and relive my first experiences. They were the most fun to me. I will never forget those days.
Nowadays logging into the game, you don't know what to do. You can't be bothered mining or building because you know what to expect, because you have done it several times. Whereas a noob hasn't, and is experiencing these for the first time - and its unique to them. To me it is basically a ditch in the ground.


In conclusion, being a noob is quite fun. They may seem like idiots, and frustrating with their consistency of assistance, but they are living a time in their gaming experience they will never forget.
Being a noob is the best time of a gaming career, because you explore as you continue, discovering new things along the path.

Diamond, Favourite, and Subscribe - If you want be a noob again :(
Good ol' days.

I never got to feel the experience of being a noob... Before I played minecraft I watched a ton of youtube plays and that stuff... I knew how to craft everything and how to do things. But every time I find diamonds, I feel so ****ing happy!

Another great blog! When I first bought Minecraft, I ended up making 7 new worlds, all because I had no idea how to move. By about the 3rd or 4th world I found "Controls" in the menu, but thought that all the little particles that came off of blocks were the things that you collect, and on the first 6 worlds it became night, and I had either not moved or had done nothing, and had died. My 7th world will always hold my fondest memories of Minecraft, and I've never been able to reclaim the fun of Survival Minecraft.

I know what you mean! I feel the same way! The mining the stone with a wooden axe, hiding in a hole from a zombie, the 1x1x2 size house I lived it (more or less stood in), trying to burn zombies with torches, and lots more. How I miss those times... Diamond!

Good point.
Even though it still feels good to not be a noob, I remember the first few hours I played the game.
I had found a site that gave recipes and I was trying to make a sword and they forgot to put sticks.
I spent 1 hour looking for sticks ;-;
