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.



Read up and learn

Never forget to continue to educate yourself all the time when you are addicted to playing a particular game. There are plenty of resources out there now that will help you become a better player at any game you are playing.

The Internet is a great source of information for you, but a tempting one nonetheless. For every site you hit there is another one out there that shows you all the great cheats out there as well. So be careful when you're out there because it is tempting to educate yourself on the cheats as well.

Some sound advice for when you find a site that is helpful for you is to bookmark it. What is also important you bookmark something is to remove it when it stops being helpful. You need to keep your bookmarks updated to keep yourself updated on the best way to play a game.

There are tons of online guides that you can take advantage of out there. These guides will help you become a better more well-rounded player. You can go online and find guides that give you general information as well as very specific information on how to play.

Just remember to focus when reading up on a game. I know I get tempted at want to learn everything great about the game at one time rather than taking one tip at a time and mastering it. I know I would be a much more successful player if I just took the time to learn a particular task well and then move onto the next task once I feel I have mastered what I read.

You will find the other players will appreciate the knowledge you've gained when you've read up and learned all the good tips of playing the game. This doesn't happen overnight, so don't expect quick results like I do. Once you have read a good tip the other side of the coin is learning to apply the tip you were given. I know I find this to be the most difficult part of learning how to effectively play a game. You will find that once others catch on to the fact that you have a lot of knowledge about all aspects of the game you will realize that you are now an expert.

People will be coming to you now because of the work you did just by reading up on the game. Others will be treating you like an expert. And all you did was read up and learned all the effective tricks and tips on how to play the game.

 



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

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.

 


You have to deal with the anonymous moron affect!

The use of headsets is great. It makes gameplaying so much easier when you can yell out defensive tactics to your team. The precision you have telling your teammates, what you're doing with military precision is beautiful. Headset communication is the future of online gameplay. Anyone who doesn't agree is a moron.
The bad thing about headsets that people need to learn to deal with is that people use them to learn how to play the game effectively. You have to deal with silly questions like, "Does anyone know where our base is? What is this tall yellow thing? Hello? Hello, can anyone hear me? Can someone tell me where our base is? How do I get to the..."

Below are some basic guidelines to remember when using voice chat:
1. Testing: 1,2,3. Make sure your microphone works and is at an appropriate volume level before you go all out. Nobody needs to hear high pitched static for 20 seconds straight, or have you yell "CAN ANYONE HEAR ME?!?!?" at a level that would shatter stained glass.

2. Stay on topic. If you're in a game in which 30 players are all trying to defeat a massive dragon, and you absolutely must talk to your mother about why you didn't do your homework, please turn off your microphone. Other players need the chat lines open to discuss the monster's weak points, not why your bed-time should be later. Killing the mic will also save you from a lot of potential embarrassment.

3. No racism, sexism, homophobic name-calling. Honestly, if you need to be told this, you probably can't be cured. But either way, you have to realize that nobody is going to be offended by your "insult", and you are simply exposing immaturity.I think everyone can agree that these three simple rules are good for chatting with a headset while playing some your favorite games. Everyone needs to just learn the proper etiquette for using a headset. It's not that hard and pretty easy to remember the steps for effective gameplay with a headset.Unfortunately, sometimes you have to deal with the anonymous moron affect which means unfortunately have to be willing to deal with the morons out there. You need to be a little patient. When dealing with people that don't know the etiquette of using a headset. It's a new medium for gameplay, so people are learning the etiquette as they play. You just need to be patient and deal with the fact that not everyone is an expert like you are. Good luck and be patient is my advice to you people out there that are growing impatient. Just remember the longer people play, the more they will learn the rules of good etiquette.
