As a general rule, try doing things that you've seen other players do successfully, but which you are currently uncomfortable with.

 

A lot of people learn to identify situations where they don't do well, and avoid those situations.  But how can you get better at those things, if you never practice them?  If others can have success doing them, then it must be possible.

Thank you all.  I am stating to do better already with a few simple tips.    Like not sitting still for reloads, angles, and not rushing forward, wait on others.

If the OP was that good he would be able to "Turn the Tide" when playing with poor players like myself. Why, on a "PUBLIC" server should people be restricted in what they do - As a Brit you yanks are always telling us that the USA is the "land of the free";  but apparently only if it doesnt conflict with your own pet desires. Stop whining.

HEAR HEAR! WAY too much whining around here. People need to stop and think. YES, it sucks when you are on the losing side of a team with bad players, but it is an absolute rush to be on the OTHER side and you will get a certain% of chances to be on the winning side if you learn to play the game properly.

Life is too short to worry about stats (especially on the battlefield).

Then I suppose you won't object if people don't care about your feelings when they yell at you for playing like a vegetable in your tier 7s.

I'll play what I want when I want; thank you.

 

If I choke out in a battle that I share with you then feel free to deride me; not before.

Wow - in looking at your stats - I am well speechless! You must take a lot of grief in pubs. Because that is some poor play after so many battles. Looks like a lot of botting to me!

Ah, but I'm not consistently bad either!

 

Actually, I generally at least carry my own weight these days.

 

Save your disdain for the folks who buy a Tier VIII with about 100 games under their belt.

 

And it's not as though they're ever going to see your complaint.

Shrike this isn't directly aimed at you, but my curiosity begs me to ask as I hope you can shed some light on this for me. 

 

Is each battle different for you, i.e. do you notice when you do 1 shot of damage, or maybe have an above average game for you getting 3 shots of damage in? Before you knew about the forums, etc; did you know you weren't playing at a particularly high level? If so what gave you that initial indication?

When I started playing this game I had very little clue about gaming in general let alone PC gaming.

 

It took about seven months in before I realized that my computer equipment wasn't up to snuff, when I mentioned my frame rate and some one wondered whether I was being a troll.

 

I knew very early on that there were problems but I assume that just gritting my teeth and grinding through it eventually competence would arrive.

It's not whing, it's about asking your fellow players to recognize their limitations. The OP was not to belittle poor players. In fact it was and attempt to help you improve and make my play better as well. Because if I cannot help you win then we both lose.

Sir, you (and likewise the OP) have no idea what you are talking about, and need to review your wn8 colors a bit. If his recents are yellow, that means he's falling into the 40-60th percentile of all players. Which means he's averaging roughly his hp of damage per battle. If he were indeed doing only 1 shot of damage, he'd be red recents. Perhaps you've forgotten that the color percentages aren't banded evenly at all? that the reds are only the bottom 20%, that orange through green are 20-95% --75% of the playerbase!!!, that purples are only the top 0.1%...

Look, the AVERAGE player is less than 1000k wn8, why should they not play tier 10? There's nothing nearly so exclusive or magically skillful about tier 10 as the OP is making it out to be, and no reason anyone shouldn't play it. Better to play tier 10 in a tier 10, than in a tier 8 or 9.

tbh having "bad" players playing at tier 10 is a good thing, they are the ones you probably farm dat dmg off of. E100 or IS-7 yoloing? yes please. if hes on your team thats free scouting=farm dmg, if hes on enemy team=free dmg so its a good thing both ways. but then again this is coming from a baddie myself lol

if you understood the context before necroing the thread, you'd perhaps have attempted to make an enlightened post... the point was about how dreadful he admitted he was early on, and how he has improved. The questions were designed to understand if, how, when, and why; in an attempt to understand the other peoples thought processes. Unless you think understanding things from other peoples perspective is bad? 

 

Also those recent stats are what we call "recent" unless you know what they were 2 years ago when this was brought up. But sure; i'm open for you to try again now if you feel properly informed.

Until there is a platoon of them with only double digit wn8 and they yolo the valley on lake only to stall to a single scout and a sky cancer while the other team gets to hard push town.

Yeah, sorry about that, I had forgotten that I had reached the thread by a google search rather than browsing the most recent convos like I usually do,

and I missed that the earlier posts were 2 years earlier when I posted it. My bad. At least the subject matter isn't particularly time sensitive.
