don't be *that* guy

107 replies 1114 views Edited Mar 1, 2013

I've been playing today by myself. most of the time surrounded by complete noobs sometimes another decent player on my team. inevitably that one other decent player has a power weapon in their hands the whole match.. Why would you do that against noobs. Let them have the powerweapons. odds are you're going to kill them before they can figure out how to use it anyway.. Right? 

 

If you're in a party make a pact to play with harder to use guns. give them a sporting chance or they're going to leave. (unless of course you're so terrible that you can't kill them any other way)  I am not the best player in the world and I can outshoot them with a pistol.. quickly.

Unfortunately, not every person have "standards" to keep up. They only just see their K/D.

Believe me you can keep up your k/d and your standards at this point. if you need power weapons against the new influx you're just pathetic.. I went 31/8 against them in my last game.  didn't touch a single power weapon. These guys don't even know how to throw back grenades yet.

I use weaker loadouts and I don't camp/hug corners when I play against noobs (unless a tournament ticket is in stake, lol), but not everyone will do that. Some people aim for 50-0 matches or they value their KDR way too much etc.

It's a noble idea, just like asking for world peace or banning WMD, but the truth is that the human nature is too greedy/selfish and that unfortunately also applies to video games, not just in real life. Smiley Sad

same happening with me. I got my teammates using unmodded AKs trying their hardest to aim. While our enemies are using M9 RoF strafing every which way and t-bolting them running behind em shotgunning them and whatnot... I got teamswitched next match and TKed them and messed up their streaks and stuff cuz I felt so sorry for the new players lol.

 

Those players have always been here, and it's a shame. Using the tools given to the new players and every single 'cheap' method known at once just to boost that meaningless KDR that a total of nobody cares about.

Oh, I'm just leaving. -Best Uncharted character ever

Hahaha... sorry but the people who play this game will do everything in there power to always be that guy. These are after all the same people will actively hunt you as a team with every power weapon and kickback possible even if you're the only person left on your team. Smiley Indifferent

I made a suggestion a long time ago, that I think it would be cool if naughty dog would somehow make a way for noobs to team up easy, I think it could be a powerful tool for UC4 MP. I imagine a waiting room for parties, where people can chat or network to find alike levels, and maybe text resources to use to their advantage. It may seem obvious to gamers, but for noobs, they don't have the resources to understand that they need to get the guide, or jump on the forums. If you had a lobby called partying lobby or something, where people could chat with each other, mics or no mics, pick parameters for the levels of players to find within the "lobby rooms" or whatnot, you could find players within twenty levels of your own, and talk over a mic or keyboard, and maybe get some teams started up right away, instead of having to deal with feeling like your on a team by itself. That sounds like a better use of time than the tournaments, because it burgeons a lot of team play, networking, and finding people to play the game with, which is what it's all about- but as Tap will say, unless it can be monetized....
