My friend was teaching me on how to play Minecraft (Mostly on how to use INVedit) and I was playing on tiny. We were playing single player on two separate computers and we were looking stuff up on the Minecraft Wiki. We were trying to figure out why the whole glitch boosters didn't work. We were in 1.8.1 and we were raging at the game and wondering why it wouldn't work. We finally figured out that the boosters were fixed a while back and that powered rails were in the game. We though that when they said to power it with a torch, it meant a regular torch so we were wondering why it wouldn't work. We finally got it to work but I then saw a spider! Then died immediately. I was playing on tiny render distance so the game was so dark and gloomy.
When I first started playing I was CONVINCED that my torches would eventually go out and allow monsters to spawn, so after I went through a cave and collected everything I could find I was too paranoid to go back. :tongue.gif:
VERY(As in just bought it, First night in MC all that good stuff) first time playing it I thought the Zombies were NPC's...(Bought it in very early alpha(go figure right?)) turns out they werent... then I thought the skeletons were hunters... I was scared shitless... now I think back and smile about my progress. I also didn't know that there was crafting._. I had such a nerdgasm when I realized that you could craft. you shoulda seen me at school the next day... now because of my stories some of my friends have it now XD.
Started right before the Halloween Update. Thought I could make an infinite lava source the same way as water, but I hated mining. So, for days I explored the overworld until I found some lava, then I feel in it...
When I first started.... I ran into a cave... stone pickaxe in hand... *Plays sad violinistic music* I found some diamond :biggrin.gif: I broke the block... no diamond :'( Afterward I dug straight down... into a freaking lava pit :sad.gif:
When I first bought and played Minecraft back on September 8, 2010 during Alpha 1.0.17_04, For at least a real life week, I was too scared to go in caves, go more than a few blocks from my shelter at night and fight mobs. I also died stupidly easy from time to time back then as well. :tongue.gif:
Wow, probably the noobiest thing i ever did was waayyy back in 1.2-1.3 times and what I did was instead of making an axe I would make a ho but I thought the ho was an axe and I always wondered why it didn't cut trees down faster... hahhah
I placed a dispenser down to watch it shoot the mobs.....I couldn't comprehend redstone at the time so I ran around the dispenser with a horde of mobs behind me hoping the mobs would die well they never did.
I spent several hours trying to explore caves with torches that didn't give off any light. I was so confused and frustrated that my torches weren't working, that I decided then not to play until this was fixed (I'd assumed it was a glitch).
The real reason my torches weren't working? I was using redstone torches the whole time.

Studies have shown that 843,902,635 people are too lazy to read this number.
I actually started learning about Minecraft before I even knew about the game. I watched a lot of videos like SeaNanners and stuff like that. So I basically knew everything before I even made my first move on the game.
When I first started, I found out about cacti relatively late. I decided that my mid-mountain fort needed protection from any enemies "that can fly" and placed it on my fort's roof. I didn't know there were no flying enemies on the overworld, and only managed to poke myself more times than I can count with my entire roof lined with cacti. (Y U NO USE FENCES?!)

Are youbored of minecraft? It's not the new features. I'll give you a hint:It's the terrain generation. Go play a map generated in 1.7.3 or earlier, then tell me you don't agree.
I swore that I would not look at an FAQ or guide when I started playing minecraft so, I logged on and I ran around punching things until it became dark. Then things started punching me instead. After four or five deaths I buried my character in the ground and left him there while I looked up what I had to do to survive.
well, I got minecraft mid - late alpha stage. When I first played it I got half a cave made then chased by a single spider into a desert like area where I buried myself 5 blocks undergroun for the night. The following day I got killed by that vary same spider.enti I quit the world and created a new one. Played that one allot. Eventualy I relized that iron was actually what I was throwing out and that you have to smelt it. After those two things I basically got waaaaaaaayyyyyyy smarter. (Ps if there are any problemss withthis post like spelling it is cuz I'm using my phone which is being rly problomatic)
I've actually hugged a creeper and we both lived- for a minute or so. But the creeper was pissed at this skeleton. Long story, pretty sure it's in my description.
My noob story? The first time I played minecraft, around 1.2ish (BETA!), I failed so badly I managed to get sticks and a crafting table by nightfall. Then I couldn't tell the difference between creepers and zombies, and just assumed all zombies blew up if you punched them a few times.
More recently, a group of endermen tore a few blocks out of my wall of my fortress, in a place I didn't venture often, and so when I traveled through the corridor I was ambushed by creepers. Long story short, lost a bunch of diamonds and most of the West wall of my fortress.
I started playing in a hotel room on my BF's account while he was sick. I decided to build a big sign made out of glass and lava where the SMP spawn point was (this is in beta)so whenever someone died they would see my name letting them know where they were! I did not know about the shift button so I died a lot from falling into lava. Many buckets perished. The sign did get done. It was fantastic. I bought an account within a week of me playing.
I was lucky that I had a couple people show me the ropes. My BF was very patient with my bagillion questions.
First time I played the game was when my brothers friend showed it to him, and when we were trying to play we kept clicking the mouse button instead of holding it down. We were about to quit until we found out we were supposed to hold it down.
This happening to me too. Kept punching trees for ages and was like WTF WHY WON'T THEY BREAK LIKE I SAW ON U-TOOBZ?!?! Then a had a sort of epiphany and tried holding down the button. Then I realised how obvious it was and how stupid I was for not getting it sooner. And that pretty much set the tone for the rest of my minecraft experience. :biggrin.gif:
I watched a lot of videos before i bought the game, so I knew the basics but still made a couple of noob mistakes.
I started playing early alpha, so things have changed a lot since
1. didn't realise that animals only spawned in lit grassy areas and wondered how the hell animals got in my house when all the doors were closed. 2. pressed q by mistake while stood next to a lava pit holding a diamond pickaxe (I can't be the only one!)
3. got lost a lot and took days to find my house again.
4. opened a chest with a bucket of lava in my hands and burned down my entire house. It was an old bug which used to open the chest and pour lava as well. I still no longer open chests with a bucket in my hand.
5. I thought if I dug a moat outside my door and filled it with water monsters would drown in it. I went outside in the morning and realised monsters could swim and they were all having a party in the moat.
I wish I hadn't researched Minecraft as much before I bought it, it would have been better at the beginning.
Classic. Don't worry, I've done that too, and embarassingly, more than once! It's gotten to the point where Q is a bit like the proverbial "big red button".
Number 3 used to happen constantly to me too before there were beds. Now I spend days looking for my death chest and never finding it. :sad.gif:
