Don't send repeated invites to guilds, teams, duels, matches or other group functions. If someone says no once they don't want to play... get over it!

I think it's very rude to send repeated invites to guilds and teams over and over again. If I wanted to join your stupid good guild I would've answered the first 100 times! Can you say the word SPAM?! You don't like it in your e-mail. So what makes you think that people will like it when they're trying to play a game? Just because you have a large team that doesn't doesn't make your team good. Yes, there is power in numbers, what a surprise! Who cares if you have a large team or you have a popular guild. This isn't high school; nobody is trying to win any popularity contests. We just want to get online and have a good time with our friends. Think about it, you just want to play with your friends anyway. Online gaming is not a social network like Facebook or MySpace. If you want to make friends go somewhere else this isn't the venue to make friends. This is the venue to have fun and play some video games with your friends.



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 a team game don't be greedy and snap up all the points were all the bonuses or bonus weapons. Share and share alike.

Another title that says it all. This is for the players that are just obsessed with winning. Yes, winning is great, however, having hours of competitive gameplay is even better. Playing for hours competitively has taught me that I don't necessarily to win the game to say I had fun.

 

I have played against people that are so obsessed with winning they just run around and pick up all the weapons. Not only is this a greedy way to play. It is a telltale that the player is pretty inexperienced. Really they are only good at running around picking up weapons and bonuses to add to their score and prevent others from attacking them.

 

Somewhere in their brain they got the idea that if you can't shoot at them then they can win. This thought is true to an extent. Playing with people like this is obviously boring. If they think they're better player by not allowing you to even pick up a decent weapon to play against them they are just fooling themselves. Let me end the suspense for them right here and right now... you are not a good player.

 

Not only do they have to know how to play the game . You should have to know how to FRAG others as well. I understand this way of thinking, if your only concern is winning. It is important to be a balanced player to be considered a good player. You are an idiot if you think that preventing others from attacking you makes you good player. It is just poor etiquette and you are an unbalanced player.

 

I have spent hours sitting around with friends, laughing at each other and our competitive ways. It's not really competitive if one player gets greedy and prevents all the other players from playing against them. You may be a winner, but really you're just wasting your time and a boring person to play with. Playing with a player like this really is no fun and if you enjoy playing like this then you need to reconsider the type of player you are, if you think you're any good at playing the game.



Play fair

When you constantly use cheats I feel you are a poor player. When you have to use them you are basically admitting that you are not a good enough player to win without them. Whether or not you verbalize the fact that you use cheats it makes no difference, you are not a good enough player to win without using them. You have to accept the fact you are not good enough to win without them.

You will find your way much more rewarding when you do it on your own. I know I select a parent I say that, but it's true. When you use a cheat you know back in your mind that you really don't have to play as hard. Subconsciously you know that you weren't a good enough player to win without using a cheat. That can be gratifying at all.

If you know that you are good enough to play on the field of battle and not cheat then just play by yourself and practice more. I don't understand why this is such a tough concept for people to understand. Have you ever heard the term “Practice makes perfect”? It's not that tough to figure out that if you're getting FRAGGED the moment you step on the field then you need to practice more. Stop getting caught up in the world of instant gratification and improve your gameplay.

The more you practice the more you'll figure out what successful players are doing. A very easy way of learning, what successful people are going when they play is practice. I know I sound like a broken record, but you really just need to learn to do it. It can be frustrating and you will get FRAGGED a lot, but ultimately you will benefit when you step on the field and make the game look easy. You will be very impressed with yourself when you do well.

If you are playing a game and losing in a big way consider changing rooms and going into a room that is more your level of gameplay. I know your ego will be bruised, but if you learn how to play. You will be able to go into rooms that have a higher level of gaming going on. You will feel better about doing this, then cheating. Trust me, it will be frustrating at first but once you start pummeling people on your own accord and with your own skills you will be very happy.

I understand that sounds like basic advice but a lot of players need it. If the advice wasn't needed, to not use cheats then there would be no cheats to use. If players did not use cheats there would not be any cheats to use. Game programmers would never program cheats either. I know it's a pie-in-the-sky thought to think this advice could eliminate cheats. Unfortunately cheats can’t be eliminated, but let's reduce their power by not using them.
