Noob!
« on: January 04, 2010, 08:18:19 PM »
Hi

I registered this week to play team games. I lost 4 or 5 matches but learned and had a lot of fun.

There were a few beginner mistakes of course... I was called some bad name.. I can understand... I'm not so bad though as at least 2 of those games were really close. But now I've been refused from the last 4 or 5 different games I'm joining. When I got an answer it's like:

"I don't know you"
"I played you before and F*CK OFF NOOB"

How could I improve then guys ?!?


Squee,
Not playing tonight after all...

Try a few ladder duels or ladder ctons. Once you get a few more games under your belt and become more known to other players then you will be allowed into ladder teamers.

Alternatively, host some 2v2 or 3v3 games of your own.  Ask other ladder players in the lobby to play with you and maybe teach you a thing or two.  Join one of the popular Teamspeak servers.  Have a good attitude and be willing to learn and listen on Teamspeak, and you will be welcome in pretty much any game I host (unless it's one of the dreaded "elite" teamers); and I know a lot of other players feel the same as me.

Ask the host some civ related Trivia. For example:

You, "If I ask you three questions about Civ, and you answer all three, I will go. If you cannot answer my three questions, you have to keep me AND you have to boot whoever I tell you to."

Of course you will tell the host to boot the guys calling you down and telling you to leave.

So, what are some examples of Civ trivia? This can range anywhere from, 'How many hammers does a worker cost?', What is the combined total bonus hammer percent multiplier for a forge, a factory, a shale plant and an ironworks?'

You could ask easier questions, 'What tech allows you to build pikes,' How much experience does a unit need in total to gain Commando promotion.'

Or you can ask outrageous ridiculous questions like, what is the name of the third planted city of Egypt. (Of course this has no bearing on the game and will ussually be frowned upon as bad sport)

As a host I filter out the newer players by such trivia and care less about rank or skill. If a newer player can answer some Civ IQ questions, I will keep em, I don't care if they are 750 ranked or 500 losses and 1 win. I find this trivia also gives newer players who do not know these answers a bit of a clue as to what they should work on in (they're) :P game.

So next time you find yourself in a teamer, remember this as an alternate strategy, after all, whats a game without another game ;)

being cursed at and asking simple civ questions and not playing game after all qualifies you to be admin. contact any admin via the report dispute avenue and if you dont' get an answer in ten days it means you were approved and promoted
