Different Types of FPS Gamers And How they Annoy Me!!!
Stats Obsessed Gamer
Everyone has come across atleast one of these gamers!
They all have a very distinct play type and they all vary from each to the next!
The Camping Gamer
These are the most fucking annoying gamers to come across!
They are the ones who pick a specific spot, where they aren’t easily seen by anyone and they set themselves up for a long haul in the desired place.
If these gamers could actually set up an in-game tent with all the extras they probably would!
In my opinion, these are the ppl who don’t really experience a FPS to its full potential! It really does amaze me how many of these gamers there are out there! These guys give me the shits they are the type of gamers that don’t join squads, don’t communicate and
The Jumping Gamer
This is a particularly funny play type that has been adopted by so many!
The first time I ever came across this was while playing HALO MP and they would be running and jumping their way across the map!
These are the gamers who, on HALO would be jumping through a gun fight and make it damn near impossible to get a headshot!
Frustrating as it is, it worked for HALO, but I don’t understand why they feel it works across all FPS’s!
It doesn’t work on Battlefield, it doesn’t work on CoD so why fucking do it! It makes you look like a tool!
The Drop-To-Prone Gamer
These guys are the possums of the MP FPS world!
Its a technique that is used heavily in CoD MP and to me it’s just stupid! And fucking annoying!
The moment this type of gamer gets into a gun fight, they “engage possum mode” and quickly drop to the floor, are they really trying to play dead and hope that the person shooting at them, will just assume that they are dead? And then turn away and go find their next target?
To me it’s a pointless tactic, sure you dodge some of the bullets, but it leaves you exposed when you are getting back up from the ground!
The Raging Gamer
Everyone has come across this gamer! It doesn’t matter what genre of game you are playing, you WILL come across atleast one per game!
These Gamers are the players who get so worked up by all of the little things in game when they lose ect
I used to be one of these gamers. If you were in an FPS game with a little while back chances are you heard the torrents of abuse that I was directing at no one and everyone!
These gamers are the funniest because they are so easily thrown off their game by the smallest thing in match!
They let the anger take over and lose their cool! Yelling abuse at their team mates, the game and their opponents! They generally end up breaking their gaming gear!
I personally have gone through too many controllers to count! It’s harsh to say this but these gamers are the easiest targets!
They need to understand that they have to remember that it’s only a game and to take everything with a grain of salt! Dont let the game get the better of you!
Raging Gamers are generally exposed by the Camping Gamer, they keep getting killed by the Camper and it becomes the Rage Gamers sole purpose for the rest of that game to try and kill the Camper as many time possible
These guys really do need to lighten up!
It’s just a game!
The Stats Obsessed Gamer
These Gamers make me laugh!
They are so obsessed with their stats that they can’t handle losing a game, getting a negative K/D etc
I actually know a couple of these Gamers who are so obsessed, if they are on a team/side that is clearly going to lose the game they will switch teams, quit out of the match ect so they don’t damage their “precious” stats
I have seen many of these Gamers and they are far too serious! It is just a game, try to have fun with it! So what if you have a negative K/D after a game. It is a fucking game, relax! It’s not the end of the world of you lose a round or damage your stats! No one is going to think any less of you!
The Newbie Gamer
I understand that these types of gamers are new to whatever genre they are choosing to play and that they don’t quite yet have a full understanding of the game, but seriously atleast do you best to try and work in a team!
The Newbie Gamers are the ones who are really enthusiastic about working together as a team, but they are the biggest hinderance! They will stand directly behind you in a door way, effectively blocking your only avenue of retreat if you need to pull back and move out of harms way! They are the ones who will stand directly next to you while “capping an objective”, which means that there is only one field of cover being provided! They are the Gamers, who will cover the exact same direction you are even though they are behind you and don’t realise that the rear needs covering in case the opposing force tries to flank! These are just a few examples of the mistakes The Newbie Gamer makes and it costs the rest of the team!
Please don’t mistake this as me saying if you’re a Newbie Gamer that I don’t want to have you in my squad or team, it’s me saying that you need to be able to take direction from your team mates!
All of these Gamers are happy with their preferred playing style and I’m not saying that they should stop using their play style!
They just fucking annoy the shit outta me!
