I'm sick of losing due to s**t team mates

xFANCY_KIWIx

Am i the only one who loses by less then 10 kills going like 25-8 because you had one or two guys on your team go like 1-17? I find it un fair that i take a lose because my team sucks. Anyone else with me?

    I 100% agree with you. I've had that happen to me more times than I can count but this will continue to happen unless you only play in groups. I usually just shrug it off and say "I did the best I could". There are many other things in this game that drive me more insane and they are fixable by the company. <cough>

     

    Just hope the next time those 2-17'ers will be on the other team and revenge is yours!

    So... make friends and play in a party?

     

    If you're running lonewolf... what do you really expect?

    It happens all the time I just finished a groundwar tdm yesterday were I went 51-8 with a spas-12 specialist and no one on my team had above 9 kills. Luckily we won by one kill I dont know how though.

    Yeah, it's not just their Kills and Deaths in the match, but also how they tend to play.

     

    - Stopping/going prone in doorways or narrow choke points. Like the tube in Hardhat or the hallway in Lockdown.

     

    - Can't seem to aim for crap. Witnessed A LOT of this spectating before usually leaving, usually firing for 2-3 seconds against an enemy, probably a whole clip, only just across the room or something, hardly any of them actually hitting that I could see, then a few bullets takes that guy down. Basically, the TOTAL spray and pray people, not solely Striker and Akimbo MP users, but with ANY full auto weapon it appears.

     

    - Never pay attention around them or their radar (both eyes and radar should be used in equal measure, IMO). Could use something that'd reveal a red dot approaching behind a teammate, or even with the Recon Drone or Advanced UAV, who is slowly backing away from an area, yet that teammate NEVER turns around and is killed from behind. Same vice-versa, they'll simply run past someone while probably chasing red dots and get killed.

     

    - Sometimes feel the need to "cling" to you, thus they follow you everywhere most likely in hopes that they won't die so much, thus they'll end up...

     

    A.) Stealing your kills, You start damaging an enemy while a lucky shot from them kills them cause they're wildly firing beside or through you.

     

    B.) You're trying to flank, only for that teammate to start firing wildly at someone they just caught going around a corner, thus giving away your position/approach.

     

    C.) Make it harder to move around. Like when you try to enter a door or window, they'll either push you out of the way or stop you from going in because they try to do so at the same time. Hell, one time, on Mission, one such clinger was running across the bridge at the same time I was and ended up nudging me until I went off the side and died, and when I was about to get a Pave Low too.

     

     

    - Camping HORRIBLY, as in can't even seem to do that right. Just standing in some random area, focused solely on one direction, thus easily gunned down by an enemy coming from another direction. And usually doing this in a place with 2+ flanking routes.

     

    - Always seem to randomly throw their Lethal and Tactical, usually resulting in you either getting killed because theit Lethal set off an environmental explosion or getting flashed/stunned/EMP'ed by their Tactical, making you get killed as a result.

     

    - Constantly try to attack the same way over and over again and get gunned down every time. Also see this happen when spectating.

     

    - Try to run in the same way 2-3 + others did that JUST GOT GUNNED DOWN.

     

    - Destroy your own equipment.

     

     

    ...and so on...

    Make friends and play in full parties. If you refuse to do this, you're an idiot.

    You guys all act like you've never played bad before. Maybe the guy who went 1-17 was having horrible lag or maybe he just got the game? You cant rip on people for getting bad scores because we all get bad scores sometimes for whatever reason.

     

    If you want to prevent playing with bad teammates you can either play with your own clan/party or play FFA.

  • Re: I'm sick of losing due to s**t team mates

    heh I would be the first to admit I am really bad at this game, but I do have my good moments. Whats really funny is when I see someone come into a room and they shoot all around me and maybe hit me once and have to reload. I just run up and knife them.

     

    That usually makes them rage. If I got snuck up on and shot or knifed in the back then I deserve that, but with pretty much everyone using assassin and the pro version the mini map is useless most of the time.

    well also me shooting down the UAV and AUAV

    It's human nature to want to win, but who cares? It's a game. Games are supposed to be fun.

  • Re: I'm sick of losing due to s**t team mates

    Great points, I especially hate when peope follow me. I am definitely a lone wolf. I can certainly hold my own by myself.

     

    The prone in the doorway thing is especially annoying as is when someone is standing behind me blocking an exit and the enemy throws a grenade. I turn to run, and my team mate ist standing right in front of me blocking the  exit. We both die..

  • Re: I'm sick of losing due to s**t team mates

    That is the only problem Call of Duty MW3 and Halo:Reach share. The only solution is to play with skillful parties or Free-for-All. Possibly, IW could add something like the Halo 3 trueskill system.

    Yeah, grab some friends, as long as you're a respectable player all you really need to do is ask to be friends

    To the people saying play in a party. Did you think i never thought of that? Let me counter your arguement. First what if no one is online or not 5 friends to make a full team? Second what if i'm on a different CoD then my friends. Third what if i'm playing a game mode no one else wants to play? Also what if the people who are online are playing with a full party of their friends?

      Well that's easy... since you're so damn good go play FFA matches and you will only have YOURSELF to blame, er well, loose.

      Again... if you are lonewolfing it... what do you expect?

       

      Play with randoms and you'll get...

      ... random good players.

      ... random bad players.

      ... random wins.

      ... random losses.

       

      You just get a lot of random.

  • Re: I'm sick of losing due to s**t team mates

    If you're so damn good and so sick and tired of other people making YOU loose then what in the HELL are you doing playing in TEAM matches?!?! Dah! If you're so good toot your own horn in FFA and stop putting other people down cause you are playing in a TEAM match.

      First why did you all cap hell it's not a very important word in the post and second i hate FFA because it's ether camp fest or try hards ahoy. I also have the right to play what i want and you saying i can't blame my team for going 1-16 and losing by less then 10 kills is like say you can't blame yourself for losing a FFA match. What's next? It's my fault we lost a demo match because i planted the bomb 3 times and my team never tried to graud it? Am i supposed to take on a team of six by myself? No. If you do your part (getting a lot of kills in a kill based game or capping or planting objectives) and lose i feel you have the right to blame your team all you want. I played a game of dom a few days ago with my friend and we lost by like 12 points. I was capping B and i had 3 team mates standing 10 feet from the flag looking at me. So I'm  going to blame my team if i do better then the top player on the other team and my team loses.

        First off, I never said you could not play whatever you wanted. I DID say that you SHOULD be playing in FFA matches because then you would ONLY be relying on YOURSELF.

         

        Second, this whole thing is stupid. You are calling your teammates "sh!t". Those were YOUR words, so like I previously stated, why are you even playing with these "sh!t" players? Yeah, yeah, FFA is full of campers, blah blah, excuses, excuses. FFA is just that, FFA, there is a mix of all play styles and if you're so good and everyone else is so "sh!t" you MUST be able to single handedly dominate every FFA match, right?

         

        Look, you come here trashing people, calling them "sh!t" players and you don't think that is rude? So what if everyone on your team did suck. IF you're that GREAT you should be able to win anyway, I mean you're so good right? Stop trashing other people and just play the game. Here is a little secret... you are only in control of YOUR actions. You can't control everything, so either get better skills to win in team matches OR go play FFA. And please stop crying.
