I know this may be hard for some people to believe, but not everyone who plays well cheats. Believe it or not, some people are that good. They spend hours online and hours playing by themselves, becoming great players. Don't let your ego get in the way in admitting that another player can play the game better than you.Just remember there are a lot of people out there that are playing this game too. If you're having troubles believing what I’m saying just do the math. Do some research and find out how many copies of that game have been sold so far. There are a lot of people out there that are playing in just plain good. They are not using any cheats of any kind against you.If you really want to humble yourself start playing some LAN tournaments and you'll instantly be impressed by the type of game players there are out there. You will be surprised at how well some people are playing the same game you are and need no help. As much time as you think you played the game there is someone out there that dwarfs the amount of time you are playing and practicing the game. But I really like about playing tournaments is that you can't use cheats when playing so you really have a good way to judge how well you play the game.If you are playing online a lot, and you are certain someone is cheating than just report them. I know it sounds immature to report someone, but just remember that that person chose to play against others online and agreed to do it fairly. So reporting someone that is not playing the game fairly is okay because they are the ones breaking the rules and you shouldn't feel guilty about pointing that out to others. Now, be sure that someone is cheating before you report them though don't let your hurt ego make a bad decision.The important thing to remember is that even though there are a lot of cheaters out there. Not everyone is doing it. It is very easy to quickly assume that someone that plays really well against you is doing it unfairly. Most people out there are playing fairly so don't act like everyone that is better than you is cheating. It's a big world out there, accept it.

When you constantly use cheats I feel you are a poor player. When you have to use them you are basically admitting that you are not a good enough player to win without them. Whether or not you verbalize the fact that you use cheats it makes no difference, you are not a good enough player to win without using them. You have to accept the fact you are not good enough to win without them.

You will find your way much more rewarding when you do it on your own. I know I select a parent I say that, but it's true. When you use a cheat you know back in your mind that you really don't have to play as hard. Subconsciously you know that you weren't a good enough player to win without using a cheat. That can be gratifying at all.

If you know that you are good enough to play on the field of battle and not cheat then just play by yourself and practice more. I don't understand why this is such a tough concept for people to understand. Have you ever heard the term “Practice makes perfect”? It's not that tough to figure out that if you're getting FRAGGED the moment you step on the field then you need to practice more. Stop getting caught up in the world of instant gratification and improve your gameplay.

The more you practice the more you'll figure out what successful players are doing. A very easy way of learning, what successful people are going when they play is practice. I know I sound like a broken record, but you really just need to learn to do it. It can be frustrating and you will get FRAGGED a lot, but ultimately you will benefit when you step on the field and make the game look easy. You will be very impressed with yourself when you do well.

If you are playing a game and losing in a big way consider changing rooms and going into a room that is more your level of gameplay. I know your ego will be bruised, but if you learn how to play. You will be able to go into rooms that have a higher level of gaming going on. You will feel better about doing this, then cheating. Trust me, it will be frustrating at first but once you start pummeling people on your own accord and with your own skills you will be very happy.

I understand that sounds like basic advice but a lot of players need it. If the advice wasn't needed, to not use cheats then there would be no cheats to use. If players did not use cheats there would not be any cheats to use. Game programmers would never program cheats either. I know it's a pie-in-the-sky thought to think this advice could eliminate cheats. Unfortunately cheats can’t be eliminated, but let's reduce their power by not using them.
