Duncan's Musings on Epicness [Dear Newbs]

Day 1,783, 21:16 Published in USA USA by Duncan Crowe

^Props to fingerguns for making me the banner!

Earlier today, I was unsure of what to write regarding newb education. In all honesty, in-depth game tutorials have already been done.




And, Here.

So, if it's already been done and I've proven such, why am I bothering to inform you of my decision? Well, I decided that there are certain values, certain perspectives, that eRepublik players should take to improve their gaming experience on eRepublik.

Thus, I begin my article.

Dear Newbs.

I - Work Ethic
II - Respect
III - Honesty

Let us begin discussing these concepts.

I - Work Ethic

Let me start this off by saying that this game is not rocket science. This game is watered down chemistry at it's best. It's a game.

But that doesn't mean you can expect to gain anything without doing any work at all.

You need to actually try to become something, to become something

Joining Congress isn't as easy as clicking the 'Run for Congress' button. Becoming President isn't as easy as clicking on the 'Run for President' button.

Offer your help, offer your devotion and a small fraction of your time. Talk to your Party leaders, get involved within your party, get involved within your MU.

Show your work ethic and there is nothing you cannot do.

Ad Astra Per Aspera.

To the stars, through difficulty. Showing a strong work ethic might be hard, but it will lead to success in this game.

II - Respect

You don't need to everybody's friend, you don't even need to be anybody's friend.

But, what you need to do is be polite towards the viewpoints of others. If someone happens to like the United States, and you do not, please do not try and force your viewpoints to create a new United States in your image.

Try not to be intolerant, try not to be a bigot. If you believe something, that's fine. If you want to disagree with others, that's fine as well. But what you cannot do is force your beliefs on others, giving no regard to the fact that:

Other people can have opinions.

Morale: Don't be a dick, or you'll only meet assholes.

^Words to live by right there. xD

III - Honesty

^IRL pic, no hate pls

This one is pretty simple.

Honesty is one of those things that people use in this game to try and skip ahead without doing any real work.

Harsh reality is, the truth is an evil ex-girlfriend, and she will ALWAYS catch up with you.

And that won't end well.

Tell the truth.

Don't promise the world if you only live in it.

I could make this a TL:DR at this point, adding more and more values, but those are the core ones.

Thanks for reading!
