Be a good sport

Laughing at defeated opponents, bragging about your achievements, overdoing it with taunts and emotes, can make you look childish. This is all a matter of perspective, though. Don't read this and think my advice is not to taunt other players. I am just saying do not get out of control. When trying to give someone an incentive to FRAG you.

Getting out of control taunting the others is a bit immature and even a child knows better. You don't need to insult others personally so just be a good sport. Can't the others just enough to get them to attack you. That's all you need to do. You don't need to berate someone so much to get them to want to attack you. They already want to come after you to improve their stats and feel like a better player when they play the game.

A good insult at the right time can be a beautiful thing. But when you bombard someone with insults after every move it gets old quickly. So don't do it it is not a necessary tactic to use. If your opponent is already online and playing it pretty good indicator that they want to attack you. So don't worry about it they will be coming after you.

When someone bombards you with insult after insult it almost begins to feel like spam. Nobody wants to feel like they're getting spam as they play their favorite games. So don't think just because you are not trying to sell something or trying to get people to go somewhere online you're not a spammer. As far as I am concerned, a spammer does the same thing over and over again until you are annoyed so much that you don't want to play anymore. So just be aware of your insults are getting out of control to others.

The other side of this coin is this, make sure you can take an insult as well as give it. Of course it's more fun being one to dish out the insults. But remember, the sign of a well balanced player is one that can take the insults as well. Just remember it's part of the game that someone else tries to bait you into attacking them by dishing out some playful insults as well. Don't hang on to them all day. Because they aren't meant to go any further than the current game you're playing. They aren't meant to ruin your day or night. They are meant to pull you out of your hiding spot and give your enemy a clear shot of your location. Don't hang on to the insults they really are only meant to last the length of your current game.

A sign of a balanced and experienced player is being a good sport. You may need to reevaluate the type of player you are if you can't deal with the basics of playing the game. I know this may be tough for some of you but you don't need to hold on to the last game you played forever. You have to let the water roll off your back like it does for the duck. Taking this simple advice will make you a much better player to play against when playing online. Just ask the other players in the room.



It is rude to FRAG immediately after respawning, give them a second to get their bearings.

If someone respawns right in front of you give them a chance to look around and see where they are. Be patient and just give them a chance to figure out where they are playing. I hate to say this like a parent but how would you like it. If you respawned and weren't given a chance to play the game.

 

It's just plain rude to not let them get their bearings. Yes, you may fulfill your ego by allowing you to have a lot of FRAGS, but come on, let's have a little bit of a honor system. Just give the guy a chance to look around and figure out where he is. You have a distinct advantage so give the guy a chance to run away. Now if he turns around and begin striking you then by all means frag away!

 

I am not trying to tell you to be a pushover, but you may be removing yourself from a highly entertaining situation by letting your enemy go. If he is a worthy adversary he will run away, know where you are roughly, and begin a good attack sequence adding entertainment to your playing of the game. Isn't that what you're here for anyway? Or are you online to fulfill that fantasy of revenge and fulfillment of ego for a bad day. Just don't be rude, play the game, and enjoy yourself.

 


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.

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?
