I’m 125 on PS4 but my Steam profile is only 2 so I figured I’d hop on and see what the new experience is like.
I gotta tell you guys, it’s not pretty.
If you’re like me, you never looked at the booklet that came with games showing you the controls and what not. So these guys arent going to waste time training in the dojo, everyone has a “put me in coach” attitude.
These new guys have no idea how to team chat let alone grasp the concept of warping back to base when you’re about to die. Every match I got into I told everyone that in the beginning so they were grateful but they never freaking did it!
I’d type "Toby hit B to teleport!"
BUT NEW PLAYERS DONT KNOW WHO THEY’RE PLAYING AS
and by the time I check to see what the guys name was BWOMP he was dead
I showed people about shards and that you dont have to attack them in order to pick them up
I showed that you can get thrall, they arent just there to attack you for no reason
I told them everything, from Thumper rockets slow you, to telling them to prioritize the Shepard in a minion wave
Some things come with time but some things (teleporting to base, getting Thrall…) should TOTALLY be explained upfront in the beginning of every match by Nova
New players will listen and hear that
So if you have a decent computer just hop on for a few matches for the hell of it and help these guys out.
I was Montana so I could whack anyone away from a new player when they were in trouble. I just damaged bots and let some players get the kills. If it’s a 5v5 just punish a new Rath for over stepping his bounds but dont kill him. It’s not my main profile so I dont care about my K/D, I’d just like to see this game succeed a bit and keep some new players around.
