1. What's in a name

TA players have simple names. Names that can be pronounced. Such as:

TAG_ROCK, TEA_TOWEL or swe_abe.

TA newbies have complicated names, with a lot of numbers, dewdspeech and stupid references. Such as:

personguy126 (Apparently 125 guys took this cool name, before this unoriginal newbie)

(authentic names from the upload folder)

Because of this, it's easy to spot newbies. We all miss Zone because there, you could boot them as well.

2. Time and time again

10 years old. TA is ten years old. How the fuck can anyone be a newbie in a game that's been around a decade?

My theory is that the newbies all originate from 3rd world countries and really dodgy neighbourhoods, where the only entertainment they can afford, is bought 2nd hand off Ebay. If you only have five bucks, ten year old games is all you get.

3. Commentary

Newbies make retarded comments while playing. Recently, I had to watch 3 newbies lol and ROFL over the colour they had. In this shitty game, one guy drops this, fourteen minutes into the game:

"What is a good strat on this map?"

4. Finding Nemo

Newbies can't find stuff. For example, they can't find:

Webpages with some decent strats and tactics
Demos to learn from
Construction units once they've been used
The door to the short bus

But all of them. Fucking every last one of them, knows EXACTLY where the "upload game" button can be found on TADRS.

That's all for now folks. In next weeks edition, we bash chosen newbies and call them names. That'll be fun.
