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.



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.
