What does being a "Rookie" involve?



  • With the recent influx of new players in the game and resulting flood of green text, I'm wondering what being a Rookie involves. Specifically...

    How long does the Rookie period last?

    Are some servers available or unavailable based on being a Rookie or not?

    Does being a Rookie change gameplay at all besides the green username and chat messages?



  • You are a "rookie" for your first four hours of gameplay. You can disable rookie mode before that from the options menu, if you like.

    Server operators can choose to flag their servers as "rookie friendly", which shows them in green in the server browser.

    The only effect of being a rookie is that your name is shown in green. There are no restrictions on what type of server you are allowed to join. It's purely a social thing.
