I have noticed a lot of people who are upset and which I do not fully blame who are fed up with rage quitters and bad players so here's a few tips so maybe perhaps avoid people like these in the future and how to spot them.
Well some advice if you decide to take which I'm sure most of you already follow this but do not play with people who don't have mics. You cannot tell what their intentions are if they do not speak. Find ransoms with mics. Before you start screaming at everyone to ready up. Simply take a few minutes to ask everyone what their goals are because in a lot of cases people will say something like "I'm just trying to play a few rounds" "I'm just going to max my bank and I'm done" "I have to go to bed in a hour" "I have to go to work In 2 hours" if someone said that to me and I started the game anyways and then they left it would be my fault not there's. don't make the CLASSIC MISTAKE and assume that everyone who plays zombies wants to dedicate more then 6 to 10 hours to play the game.
Some people only want to play for a little bit. Now if they lie to you and then leave then ya that's messed up and stressful but if you join a lobby and start yelling at everyone to ready up and then an hour later or 10 minutes later someone leaves that's entirely you're fault. Get to know the people you're playing with a little better. I'm not telling you to hang out with them but simply just take a few minutes to ask what they are trying to do. If you plan on dedicating hours and hours into one zombie match to get far then it will not kill you to spend a few minutes trying to find the right players who you are speaking with and acknowledging that they have the same intentions as you meaning they are trying to make it far also.
I play 4 people all the time all day. I play with randoms %75 of the time. I rarely ever have anyone rage quit because I follow a simple basic set of a few rules that I have to make sure I don't get screwed over and waste my time. In result to following these rules the outcome is amazing and I'm happy to say that almost all matches I play we make it as far as we can get without people leaving. Here they are...
1. Don't waste time with no mics if you're trying to play serious. They don't communicate so simply don't know if they are leaving in a few minutes or an hour. Communication is simple yet the key to success. If a no mic goes down its hard to pin point where they are yet and god forbid they die there's a good chance they will rage quit. If a no mic needs to use the restroom real bad for example and can't speak to let you know to save a zombie and watch their back. Well there's a good chance you're going to pass round after round until that person is fed up and leaves. So don't play with no mics.
2. Understand that kids that are young who play the game regardless if they have mics or not are not in complete charge of their free time all day. Some have parent who will force them to get ready to eat or do homework. This means they must leave the game. An adult doesn't have mommy and daddy there to tell hey that's enough video games time for you to go outside and play for a bit or its time for bed mister. So don't feel so confident when playing with kids even if they insist they can play for the next 10 hours because those kids do have some one in charge above them. It can even be an older brother that says its my turn to play or a sister that says I need to do my homework and I have to use the Internet and you have the only hard line cable time to get off. Get the picture?
3. These guys in here all have mics but one or all are yelling to ready up. So I usually try and communicate to get a better understanding of what everyone is trying to accomplish in this match so I ask. What are you guys trying to do? "We are going to glitch" GOODBYE "I can play for a half an hour then I got to pick up girlfriend" GOODBYE "I'm trying to beat my high round" ok so then are you willing to keep playing let's even if we beat you're high round and we are still not dead. If this persons answers with something like...
A. Maybe I don't know
B. No (for whatever reason)
C. Just ready up (avoiding my simple question)
D. (Acting immature)
E. (Talking trash)
Then perhaps this person is not very reliable. Ya it may seem as if you're wasting you're time going from lobby to lobby to try and find the right players and you rather just start the game as soon as you enter a lobby then you really cannot complain when someone sabotages the game. Remember if you're planning on wasting hours to achieve a high round then perhaps it won't kill you to waste a couple minutes to find people such as yourself who are also willing to waste hours to achieve a high round. Don't just assume everyone who is playing or have ever played zombies are only playing to try and get as far as they can go. Everyone has different intention. Me personally I'm not always chasing high rounds depending on how much time I have and what I feel like doing then I let everyone know what my plans are so that they are fully aware. Sometimes they say "alright ready up" sometimes "get the #### out" and sometimes they back our of the lobby or even ask me to leave but I follow everything written above and this is why I'm proud to say I'm not experiencing any issues as far as rage quitting or knuckle heads who aren't team players.
So I hope this helps to maybe perhaps avoid some of the issues some of you are having until maybe and hopefully Treyarch can resolve this issues if they even plan on it to begin with. So good luck.
