Hey guys and gals. Can you vets put your practical advice for new people here? I think we need a few new posts on the topic since new blood is joining up at a pretty good clip. Thanks in advance

don't scout alone until you have a scout with a skill of at least 30

don't scout with only other new people

don't get too attached to your early gangers

never get too attached to your equipment... it is worth far less than your people

ask for help

Also observe recordings from experienced players to learn setups and methods of play. Everyone has different styles and this can help you develop your own. ;)

If you find yourself getting overwhelmed by the enemy in your early scouts, try hunting traders and ignore the runners. You'll get less loot but your gunners will be under less stress and be able to gain skill more effectively with less risk. Also don't be afraid to take advantage of the beautiful seamless maps in DW, there's plenty of room to find cover and let the enemy spread a bit giving you the numbers advantage.
