    game habits redux

    somewhere else, there was a thread regarding your gaming habits. you know, optimum keyboard placement, pre game yoga, enhanced "breathing" excercises, beverage close by, shutters drawn, etc...
    but what about warmups? do most of you just go online cold, or perhaps some instant action to blow off the dust first?
    i personally have a player nick that i use to join online campaigners that i use for a few reasons.

    1: warmup (duh)
    2: help the new guy (they really seem grateful, more than once i've received thanx for saving someones campaign when the bots are not being good teamates...)
    3: adjust to ping. from my region of the world, i very rarely get ping below 150 from people hosting campaigns. alot of time, it's over 200 sometimes 300.
    i don't want to lag people out, so i'll leave if asks or anyone mentions it, but it seems like i get a lot of campaigers from over seas(lots of foreign language, and letters i can't understand)
    4: continue to learn at this game. practice my pickup timing, movement,etc.

    anyone care to share any secrets/tips/hints they have regarding this?

    warm up at one of the TOO MANY *cough* sorry, suspense only servers until they all leave/moan i snipe too much even though it's a sniper map/accuse me of cheating.

    If there's anyone else on any servers that don't play the same map over and over... i'll go and play on them... i might try to fill up one of my own dead servers.. or play more VCTF, follow a friend or something... just keep killing people.

    I prefer lower ping, like most people, and i'll help a new player if they ask, it's how most people get better.

      that was my thread : )

      Personally, I just open a quick shangri la 30 bot match on novice, just to get the 'bullets rolling', so to speak. To get in the mood, to get my fingers stretchy. Something like that^^

              yeah just jump in. dont have enough time to do warm up, unless i have a specific match then maybe i might do a bit of warm up but that would be on the pubs anyway. warming up with bots doesnt make much sense as they dont move that much.
              ping is the only real problem for online play and i get anything from 15 up to 500 (which is annoying)

                  I do mostly finger work-outs. Don't want to pull any muscles.

                          Firstly, I always play with my keyboard on my lap (resting on my knees).
                          Second, I run around Shangrila-ce without the mouse for 1 hour.
                          Third, I run around the map with mouse for 1 hour.
                          Fourth, I run around map with my eyes closed for 6 hours. (Yes I do balcony to 50 with my eyes closed)

                          I play in a room with 35 times Earths normal gravity and every time I miss a shock combo one of my family members are killed. Also if I fail to time every weapon and power up to the second one of my toes are cut off.

                          There is no room for leniency when it comes to warming up to play 3D video shooters games.

                          P.S. I am in a volcano. Lauke is here. It is nice.
