Here’s one for all you noobs out there... If you don't know how to something don't be afraid to ask. There is one thing you have to remember we were all noobs at one time or another. It's okay to ask someone because even though you may embarrassed to ask someone but someone is always willing to help you out and teach you how to play more effectively.

Let me ask you this. Would you rather not ask someone how to do something and be embarrassed or be on the field of battle and wandering around not knowing what do when you're given specific instructions from people on your team? If you ask someone you quickly get resolution to your problem and you may save yourself a few deaths.

Another reason you want to ask someone a question like, where an item is, is an important question to ask. Don't let your pride stop you from being a successful player. If someone is on your team of course they are to want to help you! So I ask for help when you need it. It will benefit you in your team in the long run.

Just keep in mind that just because you are a noob that doesn't mean you are entitled to help. There are a lot of experienced players out there that would like to teach someone how to play more effectively. So don't worry, just ask the questions you need the answers to, because ultimately it will make you a better player. Just remember to return the favor when you become experienced and be patient when you have an answer to a question that someone may need the answer to.

 



If you do talk smack, don't complain when people do it back to you

When you do talk smack, just be prepared for the bombardment of people trying to FRAG you when you do. You might as well say"Hey come and get me and give it your best shot!"When you talk smack to other players. It is part of the game. So get used to it.

 

Talking smack is a simple concept. If you are good enough to antagonize someone to come after you then you should be prepared for people to try to kill you. When they do, do not whine about them trying to do so. This is very poor etiquette. Most experienced players enjoy smack talk and take it as an invite to come after you and talk plenty of smack back to you. So just remember talking smack whining when it's done to you is like inviting people over for a party and complaining when everyone actually shows up to party!

 

Seriously, don't do the crime, if you're not willing to do the time. That is a metaphor that describes this very clearly. Most experienced players consider it an invitation to attack you. If you don't want them to come after you don't ask them to come after you by talking smack. Your opponent most definitely will reciprocate. When you do and whine about being talked smack to, almost everyone who knows about in the game and will come after you twice as hard just to teach you a lesson and or get you off the field because you are annoying them by your incestuous whining.

 

Rule of thumb, if you aren't willing to play the game the way it was meant to be played, when people talk smack to you, don't talk smack back in a whinny way because your whining is annoying people are there to play the game, be entertained by playing the game, and are generally super competitive about it.

 


Veteran players should not pick on newbies. There is no glory in beating someone who isn't even sure how to play yet.

Okay so you're a veteran player that's impressive. The number of games you play is not. If you are a veteran that just picks on some people that you know don't know how to play the game then how good are you? How good can you be if you always pick an opponent that doesn't know how to fight back. Not very good in my opinion!

 

Honestly, how good are you if you just pick off players that hardly know how to play the game? I mean come on, there is a term in the real world for that. We call it a chicken hawk. Ask yourself how good you are, if your opponent doesn't even know how to run, jump, or even change his weapon? Can you truly tight yourself on the back for game well played if you only play one-sided contests. I personally wouldn't go around bragging about it.

 

Most people who play like this generally go around lying and/or bragging about how great of a player they are. They have to because they really aren't that good a player. But when it finally comes down to playing the game they cannot straffe, duck, or hit a moving target. This is because they never test themselves. Players like this never learn basic abilities because they don't need to. They are too busy picking off players that don't even know how to play the game. I like to think that I'm only as good as my opponent. They test you and believe it or not they teach you how play the game well.

 

You will learn how to do things you never learned how to do against another player that challenges you. A player that challenges you definitely knows how to play the game a little bit differently and may teach you something.Leave the newbies alone. They are just learning how to play the game. Better yet, teach them how to become a better player. You never know that newbie may the game of your life once he learns how to play.

 


When playing online teams don't vote to boot a newbie for just a few mistakes. Give him pointers instead and help him become a better player. We were all new players and made mistakes once.

Okay, for all you experts out there that are playing online teams don't be so quick to judge the newbies. Lighten up a little. Not everyone can be an expert the moment they pick up the controller. In fact, even you make mistakes when you first start playing a game. Mistakes are expected so don't think everyone is perfect, you aren't.

 

Don't give them the boot just because they make some rookie mistakes. Don't you remember when you were a rookie once as well? Just think if every time you made a mistake as a rookie you got booted. You would've never learned how to play the game. If that had happened you would be at home by yourself on your couch playing nothing. How would you ever gotten any good at the game?

 

 Here's an idea, why don't you teach them and mentor them? If you teach them and mentor them you will find a huge ally in the future. Not only will you find a huge ally in you'll probably gain a new and extremely loyal partner. I know when I play I am loyal to anyone who helps me out. I know this isn't always the case but isn't it worth the risk?

 

If your team is always recruiting then you have just found great way for your team to find new recruits. Not only do you get a body. You will get a complete blank canvas to mold someone on. Does your team be the sniper? If you teach the newbie how to be a successful sniper you just found one for your team. What a novel idea. You just took someone with no skills whatsoever, taught them skills, and used those skills to your advantage. This is much better way of playing successfully than being impatient and narrow-minded. Most importantly, you just taught someone something that they will appreciate longer than you think. 

 So what's the verdict? Are you just sit there and boot anyone who makes a mistake off your team? I'm telling you it's a waste of your time to have that attitude. Just think of all the great players you'll meet if you have decided to take a rookie under your wing. Now I know a lot of players don't care about their legacy. But what an impressive legacy you may have by mentoring a bunch of newbies. You may give birth to a whole new different type of care player... wouldn't that be cool?
