I'll add to this. While I've not at your age yet, I've been gaming for over 30 years. In that time I've tried a lot of different games. Some good, some bad, and some mobile...

Anyways, I remember trying out GSF when it came out, and a couple times since. Hated the game mode, and never wanted to go back. I couldn't understand what people liked about it. With 7.0's gearing decisions I reluctantly tried it again, figuring the worst case scenario I can lose my way through this. But losing sucks, and afking is boring. So, I was determined to actually get better at it. Now while I have a long way to go, I've made a lot of progress, and appreciate the game mode a lot more. In fact this is one of the few things keeping me logging back in currently. 7.0 didn't really give us much, and my (and many others) interest are waning.

Yet this hidden gem turned out to be a blast. I really wish that more people would give it an honest try. It's not simple, and to make matters worse, there are some really poor explanations when it comes to this game mode as to what certain components actually do. How they help you and why they should be chosen over other components, depending on your play style. Thankfully I had a guild member help answer some stuff I couldn't figure out for the life of me.

Honestly to anyone new, who might be reading this, give it an honest try. Spend a few days here to sort some stuff out and get the basics, ask your guildies for help, or the forums or just general chat. It really is a great game mode, that deserves a lot more love from the community, than it has.
