A lot of people don't understand this concept. It's okay to ask a question when you have one, but it's not okay to beg people for help just to get further along in the game. For some reason people feel that begging is an acceptable form of becoming a good player. Guess what? It's not! So don't do it because it's highly annoying.

Also, there are a lot of players out there that beg. So when you ask a question and get no help it is because so many people beg, and it is hard for players to differentiate between begging and asking. So if you don't get any help don't take it personally just move on and ask somebody else. Just move on, don't take it personally, and most of all the harass someone for not helping you out.

There is a lot of garbage out there and you can't expect everyone to be helpful. There are a lot of people out there that think playing equals = begging. The sooner we all learn to stop annoying people by begging the sooner the number grows and helpful players. There are few helpful people out there and the less we bother them the more of them there will be to help.

 



Don't forget to communicate

I have a friend that for some reason that never remembers to communicates with the rest of the team on what he's doing in a game. For some reason, he will never understand why it is so frustrating to play with someone who doesn't tell you what he's doing. We will never sell him on the fact that it's important to tell the rest of us what he's doing.

For example, we were all looking for an item in a game. We searched as a team and communicated effectively our findings. We spent a good 20 minutes looking for a specific item that would help us advance in the game and in one form or another we were discussing it while we were playing.  Lo and behold our lone ranger friend had found the item and failed to report it to the rest of. So instead of thinking he was an idiot or apologizing for not saying that he had the item. He acted like it was everyone on the team's fault for not advancing further.

All he had to do was listen or look at the screen to know that we were looking for the item he had in his possession all along. Instead, he had to be a lone wolf and play the game by himself and not let any of the five other players know that we could advance further, because he had the item. How could he not know that we were looking for that item all along?

It is a simple process for anyone to figure out. When you are playing with the team do not forget to communicate. If you do your team can adjust its strategy and be more effective when playing the game. I really don't think it's that hard to figure out. Here is another thought. If you communicate with your team your team will respect you and want to play with you more. That way you won't be the butt of all their jokes.
