    I joined around new years of 2014 when my cousin introduced me to this game. Back then, casinos were rampant and it's the main source of people's income just because it was legal to host them. I remember getting all excited trying to find comet dusts in worlds but they were like 20/wl. Farming was a pain back then too. I got my first dl from farming sugarcanes everytime they're ready. I was also excited when I bought my first "luxury" item which was the Red Dragon Hand. Ever since, I've been farming my way up till I got enough to buy myself phoenix wings which were a hefty 5 dls.

    Golden items back then were cheap. 20 dls for a Golden Angel, Golden Heartbow was like 11 dls. You can even sponsor your own item for just 30 dls which was a lot and a big deal back then but inflation made these items rise and made it harder for us regular players to sponsor our own with the close to impossible epic quests if you're not that rich.

    TLDR; Everything was much simpler back then (Mods like double jump, high jump, breaking mod, and etc.) but changes and improvements were needed overall which I'm greatful for Ubisoft's team as they are giving out their best efforts to add new mechanics to the game.

    I joined around February 2015 after my classmate recommended it to me. I remember when me and my bro would get our first wl from farming sugar cane and we bought 1 air Robinsons and I decided that I should have it. I was so addicted to it to the point that I hit my brother with a tennis racket because he wouldn't lend me any of his sugarcane. We were close friends with some friendly Turkish (i think) players and made a world together, we had a ztest that lead the player to the rules room and we gave names to our magic eggs. Another favorite pastime of mine was when me and some friends locked a world with a big or huge lock and asked players to pay to get out. (We got a lot of items from that). I wasn't able to get a DL until 3 years after, but my brother stole the DL.

    I remember when I locked worlds with rocks for valentine's until Hamumu announced that doing that would no longer yield any heart crystals ( forgot the name ). I also used almost all of my wls to create an SB world since that was a thing back then (remember #MAMASB?).

    I also won fairy wings from a drop game (I did not know what drop games were at the time so when the owner gave me the wings, I was quite surprised).

    Back in 2014 I farmed dirt to get my first small lock then farmed some more to upgrade it to hl. One of my friends I used to think was so rich cause he had locked his world. Well anyway my first WL I used to get some sugar canes.

We had to find our friends in their world, and that’s if you had luck! I remember farming corals even after the nerf, and not knowing how to trade! I still remember some of the friends I made later on, and now they all quitted. I actually don’t know where they are or if they still play, but I no longer play countless hours a day, and after some time I stopped caring for world locks. Without friends to play, the game has no meaning. Then I started to search for new friends, but when I try to help, they always end up scamming.

    If you are reading this, please stop caring about profiting if you do, your friends are really important. I’m still seeking what to do in this game, since it was a part of me for almost 6 years. That’s why I haven’t been playing for around 4 months. I still log on now and then, but man, I still remember the good ol’ days. Seeking for a new purpose on this game has been really hard, so if you’d like to be my friend, I always look forward to have more! My IGN is IIPedro.
    I'm playing for fun and for my friends too, haha!

I remember when the first carnival came around and my friends were nice enough to help me make crystal wings. I remember sbs being cheap enough that I was able to spam song lyrics and I got duct taped from it lmao. I used to sb ppl to come to my fashion show or mini game world to get growtokens. I also was able to meet CocoRick(e)y and Cocomonkey D
    Awesome! I remember meeting famous people back in 2013-2014 too! I was shaking, haha.

    oh and also drop trading, that was such a wreck
    Haha, I was happy because Trade System finally was added to the game.

I start farming dirts. Then I realized I can splice it with cave to make door seed. I keep farming and farming until I get 50 gems. With 50 gems I buy a small lock to keep my world safe. And I can sell the door seeds for a few amount of sugarcane. But at one time I forgot to put dirt beside the white door then there comes the scammer, he took almost all my sugarcanes.

    I was very mad.. I then find a new world to build, the world name is MYNEWHEAVEN. I start splicing to make doors again (bruh), then trade my door seeds for a few sugarcanes (again). I keep farming sugarcanes until I reach 500 gems. Then I buy rare seeds pack. I notice some seeds are pretty cool. Then I keep purchasing the rare seeds pack and made a RSP shop (not a vend shop obviously) with alot of seeds. and at one point I collected 2,000 gems to buy a WL. But me not knowing the value of the seeds back then decides to SB and sell the world for 2WLs . lol, I was so stupid back then.

    I also remembered I tried to scam people by selling world with items with a secret passage, I got scammed with the same way before so I decided to try it out. My hands were SHAKING HARD, I was a loser. I was so scared I don't know why lol. After I successfully scammed the guy I felt very guilty, but I really need WL at that time. Not long after that I also got scammed the exact same amount, I was trying to scam-fail people but turns out he's using a net cut so he's like teleported to the items and I got no time to /ban before he gets the item. Bruh..
    I hope you're not scamming anymore!

    I've been a hardcore farmer in 2015 and 2016. Never really reached 1 DL due to the existence of scammers back in the days...
    I remember in 2016, my cousin got his first DL. I was like "OMG! You're now a pro!". We kept playing together, farming, opening shops which were famous before Vending machines existed.
    I then remember the 3 days maintenance when Seth and Mike were replacing the old hardware with new one! We were unable to play the game for the whole weekend!
    Fast forward 2018, my cousin lost interest in Growtopia because of Fortnite... what a waste. Many people play this game and are addicted to it...play the game till 6 AM without any break ignoring their girlfriend.
    I was never really into RPG Games. So I kept playing Growtopia. The game became less and less fun because my friends were quitting one after the other, until everyone quitted. Then I decided "I don't want to play anymore", and quitted for 5 months.
    When I came back, I saw Matteu creating GrowStocks, so I offered a helping hand and helped him develop the whole thing (we then moved to my VPS for faster speed!).
    Loving the idea of websites for Growtopia, I started my career in web development. I have then developed GTPP, after one of my friends got his account hacked by a phisher.

    Plans for the future:
    I plan on creating even more tools for the game. We'll be working on an online set planner for Growtopia this summer!
    Good luck with the plans!

    I joinwe back in 22 February 2015. (or well that's when my 1st acc was made lel) my friend recommended me the game but he soon quit after . He told me abt the "legendary" item the Dragon Hand! He said it was his dream item. I use to hang out in TRADE2 with him even tho I never had anything to trade lol! I farmed dirt allll the time and got my 1st WL by watching a ton of ads I probably wasted that world lock 10 minutes after lmao.After saving up some gems from the dirt I would buy a small seed back and plant everything I got. I didn't know what moderators were tho lol. Yea it was fun..

    I played this game at August 2015. And the first wings I wear is Ripper Wings they are 1 world lock each that day. And I always want to buy Phoenix Wings which is 10 dls and now it's 150dl+

    also did anyone remember when fishing pack first time came to GT? The update came after 2 weeks I started playing GT and I thought it's an old update. I found out that worm are 4/wl that time so I keep farming dirt to get all the worm . Create 4 letter world name and clear the world to get the worm and sell the world for 6 wls.

    Hello,

    I started playing on January 13, 2013. 2 days after Growtopia came out. I remember when there was not a trade system what so ever. I remember that if you wanted to trade items, you had to do a drop trade. Meaning, if you wanted to trade your items with someone you had to drop your items first and then trade. As you may know, that resulted in a lot of scamming and sorts. It is where drop games originated from too, unfortunately.

    Also, if you remember a guy from Australia, his name was CrimsonEagle. Yes, the maker of the CrimsonEagle Wings. He was a really good friend of mine at first as well until he got banned. I later took over his world, TORNADOALLEY that I still own today. He was very popular within the game and the forums. Also, another couple great friends of mine were @Play, who was the head moderator for Tanked (one of Seth's old games) and @LOKSTER, who is still moderator, but he was also a moderator for Tanked as well. They are both great friends of mine today too.

    I also remember the Nyan Cat Hat (now today's Turtle Hat) too. Too bad they were not allowed use it anymore due to copyright reasons.

    Hello

    I'm Pokekid123, I've played this game since early 2015 when my bro introduced it to me. The experience then was no match as of today, maybe it was because of the fun experience with my bro and a few other friends. I would not call myself veteran, I would much rather prefer the term experienced. Until now, I still missed the good ol' times with my bro, be it building farm worlds, trading or even having fun with different events! If you had an experience like that too, share it!

    Started playing around 2013 or 14!
    (although i have multiple accounts because first few were hacked for some reason)

    what i remember the most is when u dont have wls to lock ur own world for a shop, u use huge locks and make a shop out of that space and people buy it using small locks, big locks and huge locks, anything was easily sold during those days!

    also remember when wls dont go automatically in ur backpack after breaking so people stand on the wl in case owner didnt have backpack space rip

    Account was made 2166 days ago. Played over 2000 hours, quit about 2 years ago. I hardly remember anything.
    I remember when the finnish trading world didnt have a greedy owner. I remember when i tried scamming the scammers and failed because they had 4 other people respawn to a checkpoint. Also got scammed a mammoth, dunno was i trying to scam a scammer or did i think it was a legit trade. I remember trying to make a cool world "MUSTCRY" with my friends, but that didnt work out. I remember when i played all night with my phone, and i was heavily addicted. Easily 4+ hours played/day.
    I remember farming a lot of sewing machines with my friend because we thought they would get us 300wls+ profit. I remember when i saw Seth for the first time, when shadowsurfer got the wotd.

    I dont really remember anything old though. The 1 thing that always gets to my mind was when i got false banned, because i was bouncing around in the pcats world.

    Edit: also, cant forget that when my friends came over to my house, i decided to finally quit, and gave away all of my dls. 50+ wls were taken by cheaters.
