Asking for advice online about pretty much any video game will result in two types of responses.
There are the good-guy gamers who will let you know how much of a noob you are but still offer genuine guidance. Then there are the sarcastic replies that advise you to “just don’t die” Well, duh.

But there was a time when ProTips weren’t usually accompanied by snide comments and there’s still a massive community of people who use the term unironically.
