Don't deliberately injure your own teammates (friendly fire)

I can't believe I even have to bring this up for people actually have a problem with deliberately killing members of their own team. People enter team games and kill members of their own team. Can you believe it?I can only assume that the purpose of attacking people on your own team is to disrupt the game. I can only say that is very bad behavior, and most likely will get you kicked out of most servers. As well, you should, because there is absolutely no point you should be killing members of your own team!Now in a real combat friendly fire is unavoidable and a part of the battlefield. Even experienced players accidentally FRAG members of their own team. There are times we get in situations where we are double teaming another player and you just fall subject to be innocent gunfire of someone on your own team. This is an inevitable part of the game and its okay.Just a simple fact that someone's behavior takes away from playing the game irritates me. What I mean is, if your actions are so deplorable that the other players have to stop playing and take a vote to have you booted off the server is ridiculous. Players should be playing the game, not spending their time policing the room that they are in. All they should be responsible for is to have fun.I think we would get a lot further teams would just boot off players that are there to kill anyone and everyone. It is pretty obvious which players are there for kills and kills only and not for team play. Get those players off the field! They are needed for team play like a previous article stated in the famous metaphor says “There is no I in team”. Let's keep it that way.Deliberately hurting your fellow teammates in a team game is obviously missing the point! Stop it, don't do it. If you want to be annoying then find another place to do it because we don't want you in our game room.Padding your stats with kills is that I've always said just a false way to make you feel better about being a poor player. If you kill someone on your team they obviously are not the fire back at first. So is that REALLY a kill! People should ask themselves at before they enter a room and go on a massive killing spree.

 



Don't single someone out just because you can

I see this happen all the time. I find this to be a deplorable practice as well. When one player finds an easy target, and just continues to attack them because they know they can win. They don't necessarily need to be attacking a newbie. Just someone they know they can beat.

I understand the competitive nature of video games, but can you honestly say that you're being competitive if you keep on attacking someone that you know you can always win against? It is one thing to keep attacking someone that is always a crossing your path, but it is another thing completely when you are intentionally making sure that your paths cross with that person.

For example, you and another player like to hide out roughly in the same area so you keep killing him to protect yourself. I think that's okay, and there's nothing wrong with that. But if you camp out waiting for player who you know likes to hide out in a certain spot and you will get an easy kill based on this knowledge. I find that to be something slightly different.

The gray area is, are you being competitive or just looking for an easy kill? I think that if you're just trying to flush someone out of hiding spot or are you just trying to kill someone over and over again, because you can? Some people argue that if the person keeps going back to that spot it's their fault. I agree with that statement, but if you are constantly following a person to find out what their hiding spots are so you can keep killing them again and again because they are an easy target. That is another thing completely.

I must say just because I understand the philosophy doesn't mean I agree with it. I think it's everyone's responsibility on the field to keep the game fun and exciting. After all you are there to have a good time and contribute to the fun everyone else is having. If you are not letting someone else have a fun time because you constantly picking on them that really defeats the purpose. I am all for having a competitive match up but there is a line in the sand that you should draw.

I have set down some other players, gone online, and watch them single somebody out. Just because they know they can get some kills. Unfortunately, this causes me to play to them. I now am singling out the person singling someone else out and making their game just as miserable. That is not right either. I find it no better than I am protecting the person being singled out because now my game is affected also. I admit that protecting someone from being singled out by another player is just as bad.

I guess what I'm saying is that I would appreciate other players not singling out other players. Because I now feel that I need to protect both players to keep the game competitive. I hate this about my gameplay, because it's completely subconscious. I don't even think about doing it. I just do it when I see it. So I'm asking the other players out there to please help me protect myself from my subconscious by not singling out somebody else and picking on them just because you can. Thank you.
