Every time im about to get into a gunfight I get the white plug, 

so I cant move AND I gotta sit there and watch them mow me down..  D: 

 

I no longer believe any comments saying laggers have the upperhand :/


I guess you don't have enough upload, because when you get into a gunfight, your PS3 needs to upload a constant stream of data.

Skill is being able to get kills and survive with any health type. Mostly crushing health is where all the skills is involved. Anyone can survive with high-health.

Once again, all arguements come down to definitions. Skill as in aiming skill? High health is most conducive for skill in that way. But there is also skill in evasion, knowledge of the map, and just being tactical in general. See, there's no point in just saying "skill" it has no meaning unless you specify what you're talking about. Logically, the most skill based game would be high health against a very good team that works together. You still have to be able to aim, but you also have to be careful in such a way that you'd be careful with low health. And no, not everyone can survive high health. When will people learn that in high health it's all about the shooter. What you should say, is that anyone can survive, with high health, a bad or average shot. 

 

To people talking about lag. When people shoot you from around walls, in their game they shot you in the back until you were well past dead and it did nothing until you a few seconds later. They're getting skrewed over and you're the one complaining... The one and only thing that people have any right to complain about against laggers is that they did not have an opportunity to respond to the threat. The entire engagement occured before they could ever do anything about it. Likely, if you got shot in the back, through walls, regardless of whether that player was lagging or not you probably would have been dead anyway. As a person with a poor internet connection (my parents don't care enough to upgrade and neither do I), I get shot while white plugging a lot, so if you complain about me shooting you through walls then I figure it evens out. Besides, if I'm shooting you in the back or probably at all, your going to die whether I'm lagging or not. 

When I'm not lagging (which is probably most of the time) its a fair gun fight. I'm not being frozen as a result of the white plug and I'm not shooting anyone through walls.

People who say that the person with the best kdr is the most skilled don't even know what skill is.


Ahh, yes. Nothing feels more satisfying than killing an M9 ROF users with an AK over, and over, and over again. Smiley Happy

 

I like to use underpowered/rated stuff. Makes things more challenging and fun, plus it allows me to improve.

Wait, there's skill involved in this COMP MP?  I though it was all about Blindfire, Wack n' Roll, and power weapons.  No wait, those ARE the skills needed for this MP.  #DEPRESSED. 


Nobody else should have replied to this thread because THIS IS THE ANSWER TO EVERYTHING.

U3 has 5 different main skill sets that I can think of: head up, power weapon control, situational awareness, communication, map knowledge. The most important of these is situational awareness and communication, IMO.
