"A Fear of Gilligan" you know, from Gilligan's Island. Its a player who may not know what he is doing very well, or actually an experienced player just trolling somebody... But the end result is: "oops did that just blow up?" "oops.. did I do that?" "Wow! sorry about your base" "umm what mining ship?" "Leaving beacon on at 50km was a bad thing??" .. and so on. Making survival in the already harsh Keen Net code environment all that much worse. And few of us have the patience of the Skipper. This is why, in case you new players were wondering, everyone gives you a cold shoulder when you ask to team up with someone. Its not because we're all rude, or snobby... .. we're all afraid you may end up being a Gilligan among all the stuff we have spent hours on. Or even worse: a Gilligan-Troll, acting up intentionally.. for laughs. I don't have a solution for new players looking for a mentor/teammate.. other than making a faction and requesting peace with someone detected nearby, and "ease into" a relation with that other player.. towards an eventual team up.
