So this is my story when I first joined pw, feel free to reply down your own as well!
So I joined late 2019, when the alien booster just released (I think) my original name was Tiberius101 if I am correct. So back then, there was no tutorial, no cinematic, no newbie locks. So it was pretty tough starting. But then I just kept on doing the quests for new players until I did them all. I went to pixelstation to do the dailybonus too (I believe the froggy hat was the prize back then). I bought a small lock and locked the entrance like all other non-possessing world lock owners have. I remember just breaking my world, getting seeds, and trying to break stuff like lava, obsidian, and marble, but got no seeds from them cuz back then the trees that are naturally there were not a thing back then. It kept on being like that until I eventually was able to get other noob clothes from other players who randomly drop it. I remember this guy named Trayan (Not sure if that’s the name, it is just what I remember), who was actually my first friend. He was trading me a world lock (back then I didnt know what it was) but then I think it was just a troll. He invited me to his world STRIKECOUSINS, it is something like that I honestly forgot exactly what, which decayed as of now and he donated me stuff. I wonder where he is now. I remember asking people how to get world locks, nobody told me (sad). I remember I went to a shop by a noob. He was selling stuff but for some reason when I was trying to sell the one thing that he had too, he banned me (pretty weird right?). Then I started inviting people to my world. You are calling me crazy right now since I dont have a world lock but back then, I was gullible xD. So one time, I invited this guy. He told me to let him out which I did. He then placed a medium lock which made me trapped back at the entrance. “I have your world” was what he said. I remember feeling bad. Which later on I found out to never trust people unless you really know they wont backstab you. He broke some parts of my world. I eventually got my world back. I still remember his name but I would not say it here. I started selling stuff that were not worth it but somehow I got 1K bytes after that. But, I forgot my password cuz I made the stupid decision to log off without a recovery email.
Now, my next account TiberiusZgo. I started it around late 2019 too. It was more succesful. I forgot how, but I managed to sell trash and got like 400 bytes. I remember getting scammed via drop game the first time, I lost lord’s cape and executioner’s axe, which is not a big deal by today’s standards. I also got my legit first world lock but it was via donation by a guy who was about to quit. I remembered how happy I was, cuz I thought getting a world lock is impossible. I remember back when my brother was playing, he traded his demon wings for chaos helmet which back then was a good deal. I remember being excited because that was the first legendary I and we, possessed. I remember, I lost all of that via mannequin scam. My demon wing, chaos helm, dual elven blades +more, GONE. I was seriously ready to quit until I managed to get back up. I remember catching a lava moth, and selling it for 20 world lcoks. I was SO HAPPY cuz that was the most world locks I have ever had back then and I thought the trader was joking since 20 wls seemed a lot to me. Days turned to months, hours and hours of playing, until I was able to earn 30K gems, archy black+ dead rocker coat set, a few summer items of 2020, then got a pretty decent amount of bytes. I joined a clan too back then, it was called Dew clan (the clan is level 10 now). My friend back then, told me that a youtuber who was pretty famous was a scammer. I decided to log in into a new acc since that youtuber already saw me in the same world I was gonna use my alt in. It turns out nothing really happened, but when I tried to login to my main account… THE PASSWORD I WAS TYPING IN WAS INCORRECT. I was panicking, I tried every single pass I knew then I remembered changing my password (that I forgot) then ONCE AGAIN I HAD NO RECOVERY EMAIL. I had a literal heartattack back then. For about an hour I was having PTSD since that account was like a year old and was pretty pro. I decided to start a new account [ZGO] which is where I’m at now.
If you are wondering why my name here is TiberiusZgo instead of the one currently, then it is because I am paying tribute to that account because it was one of the best ones I had.
And here I am now, having a net worth of 250+ wls in bytes (once I sell the one thing during summer event). It is pretty crazy how much I have progressed despite losing 2 accounts and getting scammed many times. It just goes to show that no matter what, never give up.
I hope my story kind of inspires people too
