Just watched them - anxious to try them out. I need to get in the mindset of jumping around more while being fired upon as opposed to rolling. Rolling is virtually useless.
Naw. It's ALWAYS been this way. The learning curve for the UC MP series, starting with UC2 and now continuing with UC3 MP has always been very steep. There are exceptions, like when the game first gets released and everyone's got it, and it's true noobs galore, but for the most part, espeically if you are in the DLC pool, you've gotta have it down. And doublely so for those who venture out as lone wolves. This game PUNISHES lone wolves (can you say insta-late-join-loss?).
It has always been thus, and thus will always be.
I find that if I'm ever stuck, as long as I can find out what better players are doing (that I'm not doing) and somehow replicate it or learn from it, I slowly improve.

So Aureilia, humor me as I'm new to this forum and I'm not familiar with everyone on here....
Was there a time when you felt like you were in control in matches and that you knew you were going to go positive regardless of what you encountered? (Perhaps you're a beast and you still go positive in-spite of the inconsistencies).
If so, when did that change? For me, it changed when I started playing the DLC maps (which happened to be on the release day for patch 1.13). Since then, it seems like I'm shooting blanks 7 times out of 10 and everyone either dices me in via teammate flanking, zig-zagging thru my shots to melee me, or, if I'm winning, quick booming or RPG'ing me.
Its been a slaughter the last two days and I've come within inches of my sanity. It seems like I just can't get back to being somewhat succesful. Sorry for all the whining. LOL.
You mentioned that you were getting flanked a lot. I never blame anyone for my failures, but there is point where if your teammates don't have your back, don't pay attention to what you're doing and generally acting as if it's free-for-all, well welcome to hell. It's the whole, "I won't play if I'm not in a party thing." There's a reason. I've been in fire-fights lately where a teammate is behind me, all he has to do is shoot what I'm shooting at and bingo. I go down and he's nowhere to be seen, AARRGGHH!
Other than that all I can offer is don't give up. You've had good success in the past, there's no reason you won't have success in the future. I'm trying to change things up myself, and you're reading some one whose KDR (God help me) is about .7. Me, i'm trying to concentrate less on killing and more on avoiding situations where I'm sure to get killed. If it's 2 on 1, I get the heck out of there. I won't end up on plays of the week, but it's actually kind of goofy fun.
Banting - thanks for the insight. Good to see someone else on the forum who isn't one of those dudes who in the midst of the raping is coming out 18-4.
My game play is quickly turning into a similar tactic to what you mentioned ..... safety. Inching around corners, always following a teammate, never running thru the middle area of a map.
