I have a friend that for some reason that never remembers to communicates with the rest of the team on what he's doing in a game. For some reason, he will never understand why it is so frustrating to play with someone who doesn't tell you what he's doing. We will never sell him on the fact that it's important to tell the rest of us what he's doing.

For example, we were all looking for an item in a game. We searched as a team and communicated effectively our findings. We spent a good 20 minutes looking for a specific item that would help us advance in the game and in one form or another we were discussing it while we were playing.  Lo and behold our lone ranger friend had found the item and failed to report it to the rest of. So instead of thinking he was an idiot or apologizing for not saying that he had the item. He acted like it was everyone on the team's fault for not advancing further.

All he had to do was listen or look at the screen to know that we were looking for the item he had in his possession all along. Instead, he had to be a lone wolf and play the game by himself and not let any of the five other players know that we could advance further, because he had the item. How could he not know that we were looking for that item all along?

It is a simple process for anyone to figure out. When you are playing with the team do not forget to communicate. If you do your team can adjust its strategy and be more effective when playing the game. I really don't think it's that hard to figure out. Here is another thought. If you communicate with your team your team will respect you and want to play with you more. That way you won't be the butt of all their jokes.

I know it's tough but try to ignore insults. They are part of the game so just remember that they are not personal even though they may sound that way. I know this advice is a lot easier said than done, but to be a truly successful player you must learn not to listen to others say about you while you're playing the game.

Most players try to bait you into making a poor decision game wise by playing on your emotions. I know someone who uses this technique to his advantage all the time. We were playing a game and he gave me a look that let me know that he was about to do something that he thought was funny. He then turned around and insulted one of the players who he was playing against in the game. The player got so worked up about it came out of hiding and tried to charge my friend. After he got FRAGGED and the game had and we both sat back and had a big laugh about it.

What was so funny about the situation was the player had my buddy pinned down. If he just stopped and not played with his emotions. He probably would've survived. There was absolutely no need for him to blow his cover and charge my friend. Yet he did. He led the insult get the best of him and he paid the ultimate price.Sometimes players will insult you in such a way that you feel that you can't ignore it.

Just remember that you can pretty much ignore any insult out there. Some players will even get super personal just hoping that you will blow it and get caught up in the emotions of the game. Some people will insult your family, your political beliefs, and anything else that they know will get a rise out of you. Just remember when you fall for their ploys most likely you will lose.If you are having trouble ignoring someone's insults just sit back and let them tire themselves out. You'll get the best of any player throwing insults around by showing them that it's not working. Players that prey on your emotions generally aren't that great of players. If they were they would stop talking the talk and start walking the walk. A great player enjoys playing the game not playing your emotions. Just remember that the next time someone is trying to get your goat.
