Be a good sport

Laughing at defeated opponents, bragging about your achievements, overdoing it with taunts and emotes, can make you look childish. This is all a matter of perspective, though. Don't read this and think my advice is not to taunt other players. I am just saying do not get out of control. When trying to give someone an incentive to FRAG you.

Getting out of control taunting the others is a bit immature and even a child knows better. You don't need to insult others personally so just be a good sport. Can't the others just enough to get them to attack you. That's all you need to do. You don't need to berate someone so much to get them to want to attack you. They already want to come after you to improve their stats and feel like a better player when they play the game.

A good insult at the right time can be a beautiful thing. But when you bombard someone with insults after every move it gets old quickly. So don't do it it is not a necessary tactic to use. If your opponent is already online and playing it pretty good indicator that they want to attack you. So don't worry about it they will be coming after you.

When someone bombards you with insult after insult it almost begins to feel like spam. Nobody wants to feel like they're getting spam as they play their favorite games. So don't think just because you are not trying to sell something or trying to get people to go somewhere online you're not a spammer. As far as I am concerned, a spammer does the same thing over and over again until you are annoyed so much that you don't want to play anymore. So just be aware of your insults are getting out of control to others.

The other side of this coin is this, make sure you can take an insult as well as give it. Of course it's more fun being one to dish out the insults. But remember, the sign of a well balanced player is one that can take the insults as well. Just remember it's part of the game that someone else tries to bait you into attacking them by dishing out some playful insults as well. Don't hang on to them all day. Because they aren't meant to go any further than the current game you're playing. They aren't meant to ruin your day or night. They are meant to pull you out of your hiding spot and give your enemy a clear shot of your location. Don't hang on to the insults they really are only meant to last the length of your current game.

A sign of a balanced and experienced player is being a good sport. You may need to reevaluate the type of player you are if you can't deal with the basics of playing the game. I know this may be tough for some of you but you don't need to hold on to the last game you played forever. You have to let the water roll off your back like it does for the duck. Taking this simple advice will make you a much better player to play against when playing online. Just ask the other players in the room.



Don't hold up survivor games by going AWOL

I think most the hard-core gamers will agree that this issue is a big one. When you're playing a survivor game you're ready to play. Most gamers do not want to sit around waiting for you being ready to join! Nobody wants to wait for a timeout error. They just want to play so put down your smoke and get in there and play the game!

Most players don't mind if you are actually making a concerted effort to play. But since they can't see you they assume that you are just goofing off. To be honest, walking away from your keyboard for an extended period of time is just plain rude. When you sign up for the game be ready to play.

I had a friend that used to sign up for a game and then go out and have a cigarette. This used to drive me crazy to watch him do that. I thought that was so rude.

 I would ask him “What are you doing? You just signed up to play!”.

He would say to me “It’s no problem. Not everyone will be signed up by the time finish my smoke.”

Inevitably the room would be full by the time he got halfway through his cigarette. He had no urgency to finish smoking. He just sat there and made everyone else wait. Everyone else was ready to play the game and he was too busy to get his fix to start playing. Why did he even sign up if he was craving a cigarette?

Also, camping out is not good either. If you are playing a team game and you are not playing and are just camping out on the field that is also unacceptable. What you're doing is hurting the team score. You are also making it more difficult for other players that are currently playing. It is easier for the opposing team to double-team somebody if you aren't there to provide protection. Yes, you may have instant gratification when you do pick up your controller to play. But your fellow teammates are too busy getting pummeled while you just stand in the corner. So yes, you get to pick up the controller and begin playing but that is at the expense of the other players trying to improve. Both players can improve if they're too busy fighting off a double-team by their/your opponent.

So for all you players out there, don't sign up for a survivor game and not be ready to play. Yes, you may have to wait a minute or two before the game starts but suffer through it and be ready to play at a moment's notice. Yes I know it is tough in today's society to have to wait but sometimes you have to do it. If everyone follows this simple rule in the overall gameplay will be better and more competitive. You can't ask for any more than that.

 



Not everyone who wins is a cheater

I know this may be hard for some people to believe, but not everyone who plays well cheats. Believe it or not, some people are that good. They spend hours online and hours playing by themselves, becoming great players. Don't let your ego get in the way in admitting that another player can play the game better than you.Just remember there are a lot of people out there that are playing this game too. If you're having troubles believing what I’m saying just do the math. Do some research and find out how many copies of that game have been sold so far. There are a lot of people out there that are playing in just plain good. They are not using any cheats of any kind against you.If you really want to humble yourself start playing some LAN tournaments and you'll instantly be impressed by the type of game players there are out there. You will be surprised at how well some people are playing the same game you are and need no help. As much time as you think you played the game there is someone out there that dwarfs the amount of time you are playing and practicing the game. But I really like about playing tournaments is that you can't use cheats when playing so you really have a good way to judge how well you play the game.If you are playing online a lot, and you are certain someone is cheating than just report them. I know it sounds immature to report someone, but just remember that that person chose to play against others online and agreed to do it fairly. So reporting someone that is not playing the game fairly is okay because they are the ones breaking the rules and you shouldn't feel guilty about pointing that out to others. Now, be sure that someone is cheating before you report them though don't let your hurt ego make a bad decision.The important thing to remember is that even though there are a lot of cheaters out there. Not everyone is doing it. It is very easy to quickly assume that someone that plays really well against you is doing it unfairly. Most people out there are playing fairly so don't act like everyone that is better than you is cheating. It's a big world out there, accept it.

 



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.
