So i started playing FPS back in highschool with Team Fortress 1, it was my favorite game of the time. and of course branched into other fps's like quake and counter strike, but i never had a computer of my own, i was a poor lad so when i was playing these games it was at my friends house on my friends computer, but then i got alittle older had taken a break for awhile and found myself in a full time job, oh i have money now, i can buy something, so i bought a computer! basic graphics and processing and bought UT2k4 when it came out, i was so excited, but i noticed after the long break of not playing FPS's that either my aim got terrible or the quality of players was to a point that not just anyone could do well on any given server. and well i got really frustrated trying to play, id come across someone and just get destroyed pretty quickly
now i noticed a thread called ten rules to make you good. or something, i read it and it all makes sense, but the biggest problem i have is AIM i cannot AIM. does it just come with time, do i have to dedicate lots of hours to it? im 24 and work full time, i do not want to have to play every afternoon just to try and catch up to kids who do not work and just go to school and live with their parents. what can someone like me do to become good, maybe even semi pro. what will it take? i have a 8800GTX and a decent computer now that i can afford these things i want to take advantage of it, but whats the point if i cannot compete with the kids these days? can i join someones clan, will some great sensei or great teacher please train me to be pro. i am a very competative gamer, i just got back from japan where i compete in a 2d fighting game event called Super Battle Opera, but theres no money in 2d fighting games and definitly no fame or pride for them here in america, i bet no one here even knows what Super battle Opera is,
So im pleaing, will someone please train me to be good at UT, will someone give me a strict training regiment, and will someone talk to me, one thing thats important to me is that i interact in some way with a community and be part of a team to motivate myself to get better.
i really want to be good at this game when it comes out, im scared though that maybe i do not have what it takes.
how do i AIM better?
