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.

 



It is rude to FRAG immediately after respawning, give them a second to get their bearings.

If someone respawns right in front of you give them a chance to look around and see where they are. Be patient and just give them a chance to figure out where they are playing. I hate to say this like a parent but how would you like it. If you respawned and weren't given a chance to play the game.

 

It's just plain rude to not let them get their bearings. Yes, you may fulfill your ego by allowing you to have a lot of FRAGS, but come on, let's have a little bit of a honor system. Just give the guy a chance to look around and figure out where he is. You have a distinct advantage so give the guy a chance to run away. Now if he turns around and begin striking you then by all means frag away!

 

I am not trying to tell you to be a pushover, but you may be removing yourself from a highly entertaining situation by letting your enemy go. If he is a worthy adversary he will run away, know where you are roughly, and begin a good attack sequence adding entertainment to your playing of the game. Isn't that what you're here for anyway? Or are you online to fulfill that fantasy of revenge and fulfillment of ego for a bad day. Just don't be rude, play the game, and enjoy yourself.
