Just because I kill you once it does not mean I intend to kill you the whole game!

This is a topic that a lot of people don't understand my opinion. I don't know what it is about the topic that is so difficult for some people to understand, I just feel the need to talk about it. Sometimes some people have a hard time grasping this concept and  I don't understand why.

So let me just say it, just like the title says “just because I kill you once does not mean I intend to kill you all game!”.  It could very well mean that because I killed you at a specific time in the game you were just the most opportune target for me at the time. That's it, nothing else; you were just there to be killed at the right time. I have no personal vendetta against you. You were just at the right place at the right time.

It is a game, that's it nothing more and nothing less. I was camping out and you just so happened to run by me at the right time. So I took advantage of the opportunity to FRAG you. It's that simple. It's not that complicated deal with it. I am not tracking you down and intentionally trying to kill you, I think you are little paranoid.

I have watched games where one particular player has a lot of kills on another player, and it is just a matter of coincidence. The two players just seem to cross paths more than other players playing the game. I know it's tough to believe but except it. There are a few reasons why I think this happens. Here is my list:

1.       Both players like to hide out in the same areas.

2.       Both players have similar type of gameplay.

3.       Both players are looking for the same type of weapons.

 

Just because you and another player happened across each other's paths more than other players make it does not mean that there is some type of conspiracy to ask another o player has for you. It could be for some of the reasons I've listed above. I have watched it happen and it is completely coincidental sometimes.

I have seen some players make it their personal mission to attack another player over and over again also. So I don't want to lead you to believe that it never happens. Because it does and sometimes happens that someone is just looking out to get you. But I feel that these situations are pretty limited, unless the two players have some type of competition going. Or they have a personal vendetta going between the two of them.

Keep in mind most people are just online to play the game. They want to have a good time and they want to play well. Honestly, are you not going to kill someone because you're afraid they may take it too personally or think that you have something than against them? Of course you want to play well. So you are going to take a shot regardless of who it is. You shouldn't think about who you are killing, because you are just trying to be a successful player.



Keep insults and smack talk game related. Never insult someone's religion or personal beliefs. Don't be a racist. Just as in the real world, hate is hate and is unacceptable

Please keep the insults to playing the game. What is the purpose of talking smack about something that is not even game related? Now I know smack talk is an important aspect of the game and that's my point of the game! Why to bring up something that has nothing to do with what you are doing right now?

 

Smack talk and insults are a crucial part of the fun of the game. It is not that fun, if you have to defend your religious beliefs or political views. Why should you have to defend the spring when you're just playing a simple videogame? We are here to escape all that silliness anyway. Why bring it into the game? This isn't the real world. Treating it like it is.

 

There is no reason to insult someone's religious views when you can insult their weak game playing abilities. I think it is much more gratifying to rub someone's nose in the fact that I just annihilated them and there's nothing they can do about it. It is much more entertaining and gratifying to insult someone you just fragged to oblivion than insult them about their candidate losing an election. What does that have to do with gameplay anyway?

 

I mean come on, we are here to escape the real world. Not bring it into our fantasy world. Why would you even want to bring that real world into a game? I thought we were all here to have a good time and you can't have a good time when someone is insulting you personally.

 

The point is this, there is no place in the gaming world for personal insults to another player. It is tasteless and an immature way of playing the game. If you can't hold your own without spouting personal insults then maybe you should go to practice some more. You are not welcome in any of my games.



Try to ignore insults

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.
