Thumbs down help for a new player

I'm a new player and I don't know what I'm doing. Is there hope for me in this game or should I just go find something else? So far:

1. I was booted from my galaxy
2. I was denied entry from an alliance
3. I've had 130 of each roids blown to bits

I'm really not expecting to be a top player right now but I'd like to know where to go to get some real advice/guidance please. I'm not a techie or a nerd really so the manual is like reading a foreign language to me if I'm honest.

So somebody point me either to where I can get some help or where the exit is that would be appreciated.

Re: help for a new player

I would recommend you pop in to #bootcamp on IRC. It's a channel for new players. They will be happy to help you out and answer your questions.

Re: help for a new player

It can be a tad challenging being new to this game, 99% of players are old salty chumps who's been playing this game for 10+ years, and continue to do some mainly for the social aspect of it.
Playing solo is pointless in Planetarion, it is all about the people you play with that makes the game what it is, so step one is to get in an alliance and get a network, there should be no lack of people very happy to teach You all you need to know to have fun playing.
Hopefully Butcher took you in and are showing you the ropes, good luck and welcome

Re: help for a new player

You want to join HR ideally for a round or two until your confident enough and have met a few other alliance members in gal to get references from for invite only alliances.

That's what I did. Worked well for me. And no disrespect to HR its just where a lot of new players go.

Totally agree. #bootcamp is great, too!

And as I said above more importantly meet better alliance players in galaxy. I think this bit is crucial.

Re: help for a new player

Sorry but i think its too late to shoot people PMs a year later.
Im pretty sure Forest did a "newbie" test earlier?
The community isnt ready for it yet. Exiling and private gals is too big a factor of todays PA.
