If you are playing a first-person shooter game don't whine when others go after you, Of course they want to win too.

I must say the title of this one says it all. If you can't figure out this concept I'm not sure what to tell you. If you're in a first-person shooter of course you want to do well and of course you want to win. Others in online shooter game are going to try to kill you , because that is the purpose of the game.

 

Don't sit there and whine about someone killing you when you of course are trying to do the same thing. That is entirely the point of playing online. Come on, if it really bums you out to be killed by other players can try not going online to play. The simulated computer players are not getting emotional about how the game is being played. They are just programmed to play the game the way they are programmed play you. They don't analyze the way you are playing them and they don't have the skills to logically think about how they should attack you.

 

Online players all have a need to feel successful at the game they are playing. Therefore they are going to put some thought into how to play the game. It completely defeats the purpose of playing with online players if you are just going to sit back and get upset about them trying to be successful at the game! Complaining about this is a sign of an amateur. If you don't want to be treated like an amateur then don't act like one.

 

Any experienced gamer is going to find you and FRAG you. I know when I'm playing a game with a whiner I am instantly attracted to them as a target. I just want to find him and make their gameplay as unpleasant as possible to get them out of the game and off my headset as soon as possible.



If you play on a team with a team. There is no "I" in team. Not everyone can be the hero every time. Don't rush ahead it will cost your teammates or they'll have a reason to hate you.

This is a good opportunity for me to discuss role players. There are people that are very good at playing certain roles on the team. Why wouldn't you want someone that is more comfortable in a particular role to play that role?

I watched two of my friends play completely successfully together one night. One person did all the shooting of one person did all of the driving of the vehicles. They were completely dominant player on the field playing that way. If they had switched roles, they would not have been even remotely as successful. If the driver took over the gun and the gunner took over the wheel they would have not been as successful and both of them would have told me that they felt they could have played a bit better.

Not every football team can have a team full of quarterbacks. Nor would you want a one-sided team. I wish people would think about this when they’re playing a game as a team. I always think of it for me to play laser tag. We played in a maze and we played as a team. Our stats were always better when my buddy who love to shoot people focused on offense and I played defense because I prefer defense and I defended the fort. It's a simple concept that I feel should be easily adapted, but I have friends that think every player should be equally good at every task.

This is just silly to play that way! Think of all the successful teams that you know. Would the 49ers have been as good if Jerry Rice could play quarterback as well as Joe Montana? The answer is obviously no. They all have role players, let them play their roles and stop complaining that every player on the team is not a FRAG-Master. When you play in a team environment you can't ever expect everyone to be equally as good. If you do, your team is just doomed to failure.
