Veteran players should not pick on newbies. There is no glory in beating someone who isn't even sure how to play yet. PDF Print E-mail

Okay so you're a veteran player that's impressive. The number of games you play is not. If you are a veteran that just picks on some people that you know don't know how to play the game then how good are you? How good can you be if you always pick an opponent that doesn't know how to fight back. Not very good in my opinion!

 

Honestly, how good are you if you just pick off players that hardly know how to play the game? I mean come on, there is a term in the real world for that. We call it a chicken hawk. Ask yourself how good you are, if your opponent doesn't even know how to run, jump, or even change his weapon? Can you truly tight yourself on the back for game well played if you only play one-sided contests. I personally wouldn't go around bragging about it.

 

Most people who play like this generally go around lying and/or bragging about how great of a player they are. They have to because they really aren't that good a player. But when it finally comes down to playing the game they cannot straffe, duck, or hit a moving target. This is because they never test themselves. Players like this never learn basic abilities because they don't need to. They are too busy picking off players that don't even know how to play the game. I like to think that I'm only as good as my opponent. They test you and believe it or not they teach you how play the game well.

 

You will learn how to do things you never learned how to do against another player that challenges you. A player that challenges you definitely knows how to play the game a little bit differently and may teach you something.Leave the newbies alone. They are just learning how to play the game. Better yet, teach them how to become a better player. You never know that newbie may the game of your life once he learns how to play.

If you play on a team with a team. There is no "I" in team. Not everyone can be the hero every time. Don't rush ahead it will cost your teammates or they'll have a reason to hate you. PDF Print E-mail

This is a good opportunity for me to discuss role players. There are people that are very good at playing certain roles on the team. Why wouldn't you want someone that is more comfortable in a particular role to play that role?

I watched two of my friends play completely successfully together one night. One person did all the shooting of one person did all of the driving of the vehicles. They were completely dominant player on the field playing that way. If they had switched roles, they would not have been even remotely as successful. If the driver took over the gun and the gunner took over the wheel they would have not been as successful and both of them would have told me that they felt they could have played a bit better.

Not every football team can have a team full of quarterbacks. Nor would you want a one-sided team. I wish people would think about this when they’re playing a game as a team. I always think of it for me to play laser tag. We played in a maze and we played as a team. Our stats were always better when my buddy who love to shoot people focused on offense and I played defense because I prefer defense and I defended the fort. It's a simple concept that I feel should be easily adapted, but I have friends that think every player should be equally good at every task.

This is just silly to play that way! Think of all the successful teams that you know. Would the 49ers have been as good if Jerry Rice could play quarterback as well as Joe Montana? The answer is obviously no. They all have role players, let them play their roles and stop complaining that every player on the team is not a FRAG-Master. When you play in a team environment you can't ever expect everyone to be equally as good. If you do, your team is just doomed to failure.

If you play a team game don't be greedy and snap up all the points were all the bonuses or bonus weapons. Share and share alike. PDF Print E-mail

Another title that says it all. This is for the players that are just obsessed with winning. Yes, winning is great, however, having hours of competitive gameplay is even better. Playing for hours competitively has taught me that I don't necessarily to win the game to say I had fun.

 

I have played against people that are so obsessed with winning they just run around and pick up all the weapons. Not only is this a greedy way to play. It is a telltale that the player is pretty inexperienced. Really they are only good at running around picking up weapons and bonuses to add to their score and prevent others from attacking them.

 

Somewhere in their brain they got the idea that if you can't shoot at them then they can win. This thought is true to an extent. Playing with people like this is obviously boring. If they think they're better player by not allowing you to even pick up a decent weapon to play against them they are just fooling themselves. Let me end the suspense for them right here and right now... you are not a good player.

 

Not only do they have to know how to play the game . You should have to know how to FRAG others as well. I understand this way of thinking, if your only concern is winning. It is important to be a balanced player to be considered a good player. You are an idiot if you think that preventing others from attacking you makes you good player. It is just poor etiquette and you are an unbalanced player.

 

I have spent hours sitting around with friends, laughing at each other and our competitive ways. It's not really competitive if one player gets greedy and prevents all the other players from playing against them. You may be a winner, but really you're just wasting your time and a boring person to play with. Playing with a player like this really is no fun and if you enjoy playing like this then you need to reconsider the type of player you are, if you think you're any good at playing the game.

When playing online teams don't vote to boot a newbie for just a few mistakes. Give him pointers instead and help him become a better player. We were all new players and made mistakes once. PDF Print E-mail

Okay, for all you experts out there that are playing online teams don't be so quick to judge the newbies. Lighten up a little. Not everyone can be an expert the moment they pick up the controller. In fact, even you make mistakes when you first start playing a game. Mistakes are expected so don't think everyone is perfect, you aren't.

 

Don't give them the boot just because they make some rookie mistakes. Don't you remember when you were a rookie once as well? Just think if every time you made a mistake as a rookie you got booted. You would've never learned how to play the game. If that had happened you would be at home by yourself on your couch playing nothing. How would you ever gotten any good at the game?

 

 Here's an idea, why don't you teach them and mentor them? If you teach them and mentor them you will find a huge ally in the future. Not only will you find a huge ally in you'll probably gain a new and extremely loyal partner. I know when I play I am loyal to anyone who helps me out. I know this isn't always the case but isn't it worth the risk?

 

If your team is always recruiting then you have just found great way for your team to find new recruits. Not only do you get a body. You will get a complete blank canvas to mold someone on. Does your team be the sniper? If you teach the newbie how to be a successful sniper you just found one for your team. What a novel idea. You just took someone with no skills whatsoever, taught them skills, and used those skills to your advantage. This is much better way of playing successfully than being impatient and narrow-minded. Most importantly, you just taught someone something that they will appreciate longer than you think. 

 So what's the verdict? Are you just sit there and boot anyone who makes a mistake off your team? I'm telling you it's a waste of your time to have that attitude. Just think of all the great players you'll meet if you have decided to take a rookie under your wing. Now I know a lot of players don't care about their legacy. But what an impressive legacy you may have by mentoring a bunch of newbies. You may give birth to a whole new different type of care player... wouldn't that be cool?

Keep insults and smack talk game related. Never insult someone's religion or personal beliefs. Don't be a racist. Just as in the real world, hate is hate and is unacceptable PDF Print E-mail

Please keep the insults to playing the game. What is the purpose of talking smack about something that is not even game related? Now I know smack talk is an important aspect of the game and that's my point of the game! Why to bring up something that has nothing to do with what you are doing right now?

 

Smack talk and insults are a crucial part of the fun of the game. It is not that fun, if you have to defend your religious beliefs or political views. Why should you have to defend the spring when you're just playing a simple videogame? We are here to escape all that silliness anyway. Why bring it into the game? This isn't the real world. Treating it like it is.

 

There is no reason to insult someone's religious views when you can insult their weak game playing abilities. I think it is much more gratifying to rub someone's nose in the fact that I just annihilated them and there's nothing they can do about it. It is much more entertaining and gratifying to insult someone you just fragged to oblivion than insult them about their candidate losing an election. What does that have to do with gameplay anyway?

 

I mean come on, we are here to escape the real world. Not bring it into our fantasy world. Why would you even want to bring that real world into a game? I thought we were all here to have a good time and you can't have a good time when someone is insulting you personally.

 

The point is this, there is no place in the gaming world for personal insults to another player. It is tasteless and an immature way of playing the game. If you can't hold your own without spouting personal insults then maybe you should go to practice some more. You are not welcome in any of my games.
