Hey, Robloxians! Now that we’ve gotten the basics of Roblox out of the way with our previous blog post, it’s time to step up your game.
Today’s topic focuses on how to look cool on Roblox (as opposed to being a total noob). Coolness transcends all manner of interactions, so online video games aren’t exempted from it – even with the supposed anonymity involved. Once you’ve gotten a feel for the games, it’s only natural to want to stand out and be as popular as you would aspire to be in real life.
The good news is that it’s really not that difficult to know how to look good on Roblox. A lot of unspoken real-world rules apply here, as well as some specific ones that can definitely up your game. So read on, and hopefully, you will be the epitome of Roblox-cool in no time.
Get a Unique Username
You may not have a choice as to how your parents named you, but on Roblox, you have all possible combinations of letters, words, and numbers at your disposal. Go ahead and come up with the craziest, most memorable name that best describes who you are. First impressions usually last, so don’t bore your Roblox friends with a forgettable, common moniker.
If you can’t come up with a fresh new name for your Roblox account, too bad for you. Kidding! Fortunately, there are some pretty awesome username-generating apps and sites to try. Sites like SpinXO generate usernames for gaming platforms like Roblox, as well as other social media sites like Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube. They even give out random girl and boy names just in case you’re stumped as to what to name your next offspring, sibling, or pet!
Play All the Popular Games
Roblox is known for having some of the most creative and imaginative games to be played online. There’s such a staggering array of games waiting for play time that I can’t blame you for not knowing where to begin. But in the pursuit of looking good on Roblox, consider playing the most popular games first.
Now, I know that there’s going to be a lot of contention about how to define popularity when it comes to gaming platforms. However, based on experience and after some research involving listicles and feedback on gaming forums, we’ve come up with the following four recommendations. They hopefully meet the “coolness” criteria of them having no copyright infringement, actively being recommended by friends, containing catchy graphics, and having the ability to teach social skills.
- Welcome to the Town of Robloxia (WTTTOR) – this one takes place in Robloxia Town and integrates role-playing with other Roblox users. It’s consistently been on the top five most played Roblox games in many listicles.
- Jailbreak – taking the game of hide-and-seek to the next level, this game always has new updates, so it keeps players on their toes. It also encourages sound decision-making.
- Natural Disaster Survival – this game is one that is often played by real-life friends together, mainly to see how they will be able to survive such natural calamities as floods, tsunamis, and other disasters.
- Apocalypse Rising – if you like zombies, this is something you should take on. Apocalypse Rising is one of the most popular survival games on the platform that has been “favorited” by over 400,000 users.
Keep Making and Adding New Friends
How to become famous on Roblox? Do what you do in real life – make new friends! A lot of online gamers may be introverted, but on Roblox, being friendly can pave the way for more fun moments (like with role-playing games). You can ask people to add you while playing games and interacting with them, just as you would in other social media platforms. Another way to go about making new friends is to join groups – you can join up to five without a Builder’s Club membership. Unfortunately, there is a 200-friend limit on Roblox, so you do have to be picky at some point about who to give friend requests to.
Follow the Rules
Join the Builder’s Club
As in real life, you got to spend money to gain some semblance of fame. For instance, if you want a cool new OOTD (outfit of the day), you know that you’re going to have to set aside some of your allowance or salary to save up for it. The same goes for Roblox! You need some cool Roblox outfits in order to stand out and get noticed. You can always opt that at a slower pace, but joining the Builder’s Club (which is optional, so don’t get pressured to do so) will allow you to get more Robux on a daily basis. In turn, that spells out in-game currency for fashionable swag such as aviators, caps, and other clothes for all those unforgettably cool Roblox looks you want to pull off.
Being in the Builder’s Club also allows you to obtain the kind of limited items that will impress other players. You can either keep them in your inventory or trade them with others in the future.
So you see, there is really no shortage of ways to be cool or popular on Roblox. Perhaps the most common yet unmentioned advice has to do with being yourself and being mindful of affecting others on the platform. These are just the tip of the iceberg (see what I did there? Brr!), so you are welcome to add your own tips and suggestions on the subject, right there in the comments section.
