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.



No spamming! In written chat is writing the same thing repeatedly in voice chat. It is saying the same thing repeatedly. In both cases, it's a desperate attempt at gaining attention and is juvenile and annoying.

I think we can all agree on this spamming is lame! Just because it's a different form of spamming like saying the same thing over and over again it is agitating so please stop. If you think the other people on the end of the controller are not smart enough to not listen to what you're saying. Then you yourself are pretty dumb. And you're being annoying and a place that annoyance is not tolerated.

 

If you think saying the same thing over and over again is not spamming then you are dumber than you look. It is not that hard to put two and two together. When you spam in writing. You send the same thing over and over again. It is the exact same thing if you say the same thing over and over. Semantics is really the only difference. The way you deliver your message is different yes. But your message is still spam, sorry! Nice try!

 

The Internet is full of places you can sell your products on, so waste your time on those sites. Don't bring it into the game room. It's a completely different type of medium. People are here to have fun, so why would you want to ruin that? The people are there to enjoy themselves and have a form of entertainment.

 

Though you may get your message out there and that people hearing it. Now people have a negative feeling about your product. A lot of hard-core gamers will do their best to make sure no one gets your product just because you annoyed them to the point when a game they love is no longer fun.

 

Who wants to spend their time looking for a spam free room when they could be wasting that time, getting some hits? What you spammers need to understand is that just because we aren't seeing the same thing written over and over again doesn't mean we are just as annoyed by hearing you repeat the same thing over and over again. So to all you spammers out there take it easy on us. We just want to play our games.

 

I don't think we will ever eliminate spam in this world. But can we try to eliminate it. When all we are trying to do is play a game and have fun? Wouldn't the world be perfect?
