Ok, I lied. No one pwns DGW, no one... but since I've gotten you in here lets begin. If you're new and you get called n00b it's for a reason. You suck. Now you can get better because no one likes to play with a n00b. And if you're new you should inform your team mates, ask for help and follow instructions. Once you're helpful, willing to learn and help yourself people will be nice to you. :excl: And never, never :nono: leave a game if you're losing unless you have conferred with your team mates and your opponents to end it.
