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.

 



Don't tell others how to play their characters

Don’t tell others how to play their characters, that's just rude. Just because you wouldn't do something doesn't mean somebody else would. What is great about what makes us people is our individuality. Playing online is just an extension of who we are as people. One man's garbage is another man's gold, and just because you don't value something doesn't mean somebody else won't.

Be careful because everything is from your point of view. That is really what most people have to remember when they see someone doing something that they don't understand. We all have a way and style we like to play and that is great. But just because I play a certain way doesn't mean, my buddy sitting next to me play the same way. Just remember about perspectives. Everyone has one, and they are all different.

This task becomes more difficult as you become more of a veteran. When you see someone do something that you would do. You instantly try to stop them from doing so. But the thing is you have no idea what they are trying to do. Telling them how to do something is just poor etiquette. Asking questions is okay, but telling another player how to play the game is just wrong.

You may know how to play well for you! But that doesn't mean the way you play is not the best way to play for somebody else. If you begin imposing your will on others you are sure to be kicked out of most groups quickly. So don't do it let others play the game their way even if you think they are playing the game badly.
