how to not get angry while playing apb

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Gaming sometimes can make people angry or i should say losing in a game can make people angry. Thats where sportsmanship comes into place but not everybody develops it and it takes time to develop. And sometimes even after having sportsmanship people do get mad when they lose due to not their or their teammates but due to the game's own shortcomings like server side lag or bugs which makes everybody mad and its alright to get mad at this. And these problems are very common in apb. As a newbie and till reached i 1500 hours i was kind of a player who used to get mad and pissed of a lot and rage quit but somehow after crossing 1500 hours i developed this godly trait of not giving a fuck. Now this game is my favorite no matter how shitty the game or the community is and ive even learned various ways to reduce or never get mad all together so i thought of sharing these tips. Here you go!

 

Eat while you play - i munch on dry fruits, vegetable salads or any kind of light and healthy food while i play. Though it kinda sometimes distracts me from gameplay but i become more playful and happy when im playing while eating stuff.

 

Talk with people - get a good microphone or just use the chatting system and talk with people while playing. i dont think the population is that low that you will fail to find people who can speak or write English. Apb does not have bots so every player on this game is a human behind a screen with his/her own life different then yours. So much to know! just talk!

 

Customize your character/cars /// make symbols/themes - A huge reason why im still playing apb is cus of this. Customization in apb is unparalleled. Theres so much you can do. i especially love dressing up my character the most. there is so much cool clothing on citadel. Though i play on jericho but im still able to find cool outfits by talking with people or whispering designers from marketplace. changing how my character's looks makes me feel refreshed and anew. First thing i do after logging in apb is checkout social for new clothes.

 

Dont play more than 3 hours straight - take a break. do something else like watch porn and masturbate,read a manga/novel,watch anime,browse apb forums or myanimelist do your your homework, talk with your parents/friends, hang outside, do house chores, grocery shopping, take a stroll outside or just go to work. whatever the fq.

 

Theres also one more point that i would like to share but have mixed feeling about it.

 

shit talk - when i was a newbie i used to shit talk on distract chat and insult everybody who used to rekt me by whispering them insults/hackusating them and then ignoring them. i just wanted to let it all out cuz it helped me lift off my rage Though i swear that i didnt mean anything i said to them and a lot of times i even apologized to them. Do you guys think that letting it all out by shit talking is a good way to reduce rage? i personally dont feel its a good way even though it helped me. 

 

Dont play in Groups -  Only play in groups if your someone who have faith in his/her skills /// someone with a microphone who can use voice chat  /// someone who have just started playing /// someone who dont give a fuck about anything.

 

The most rage quits ive seen is from my own group mates who quit after getting rekt repeatedly while playing with me. If even one of you suck then theres a high chance that your going to get rekt repeatedly. why repeatedly? cuz your stuck with a not so good teammate and dont have the advantage that random matchmaking gives which is randomly matching you up with someone who plays good.

If you wanna group up anyway then tell your partner(s) in advance that you suck.

 

 

These are all the points that i can think of at this moment. do you peeps have more to add?

Do you agree or disagree with any of these?

Do you think one should play a game even if it makes you angry?

Why do people play games if that makes them angry?

 

lemme know whatever you think!

peace~

Always play with friends. Maybe even join a clan if you don't have friends. Soloing is very annoying in APB.

All good advice. When you rage, you act rashly and you're likely to play worse.

интересный, актуальный пост.

 

я боюсь воспоминать 2011, 2012 годы. это было безумие)  я вообще ничего не понимал . видел читера в каждом втором игроке  .  сейчас это смешно вспоминать  😄  

 

Merged.

играй кланом против клана , приватной группой против приватной группы . почему ты , и подобные Doom32  лезешь готовый группой против одиночных игроков   ?

 

что такое клан ? это много сильных  , объединившихся игроков ( элитная группа ) почему ты троллиш серебряный район ?

i swear i have developed by far the best technique ever! and that's to not actually give a shit either way. win/lose whatever.

 

by not caring and not letting things bother you the "zero fucks given" approach was born.

я не уверен в том что ты утверждаешь . это сложно объяснить .  как показала игровая практика самые токсичные игроки это геймеры которые имеют от 7 000 до 25 000 убийств .

To be honest if im starting to get mad at the game i just stop trying. The only reason i get mad is because i start trying really hard and then getting my patootie handed to me. If i just play for fun, you know the way games are ment to be played, you actually have fun. Crazy right? 🙂

How to not be angry? To not be angry you need to have fun, how to do it? You need to create a twink (second account) and play with some shit like NFAS + percs + kevlar or percs + PIG or some other shit. Also if you don't wanna create a second account just play fight club with Volcano or NFAS for example.

What I often have a chance to see is people turning their gaming experience into threats for their ego and failing to do so leads to their aggression and frustration, they become rude, mean and hostile towards others. To avoid this and getting angry one should grow up, mentally.

 

Perhaps single player games taught us we have to win, we do not have to win each time. As long as one has fun in the process the outcome is not really important. It's even better if we do it with friends, the biggest failures can be just a good reason for a laugh. More than often it actually is.

 

Games should be played for fun and leisure, above all. If you're a competitive type of a player then acknowledge the fact there will always be a better player out there than you are, even if you are the best one sometimes odds won't be in your favor. Losing just makes an opportunity for enhancement and improvement if that's something you care of. 

 

Questioning yourself how much you actually value a random opinion of a random online person you do not care for is something everyone should ask before they let themselves to rage over a line of text in their whisper. If someone is being a prick without any manners, playing unfair or lacking any sense of sportsmanship, why would you be descending to their level? Let them climb to yours, if capable of doing so.

 

Finally, appreciate your own time, once you are finally done with your real life duties and got to spend some quality time gaming, it's absurd to let yourself being upset over a silly game, it shouldn't be a conduit for stress, rather an outlet.

This,

Try unoptimal weapons, unoptimal cars and just have fun without the intention of always winning.

Learning to play would be my best advice.

if you get genuinely angry at a video game maybe you should take a long look at yourself, because you’re an idiot

What @Gro means is get on top of the server: If you play on Citadel, move to Germany!

I don't play APB to win, I play to blow things up.  Really that's my main goal, just to run around with my Volcano and send players bodies 50 meters from where I killed him.

It's opposite for me. I've played around 2500 hours and almost every single moment of this gameplay was solo and if im able to stick around this game until now by playing solo then i guess this method works. Playing in groups never got me good results. I always got this feeling of burden and let down whenever i tried to play in groups with anybody. On the other hand i felt free when i played solo and everytime my teammates were different players. I love this feeling of playing alone, talking to people whom you pass by just not never met again, like an adventurer... Lone wolf lol.

I play solo all the time myself and enjoy it more.  Groups are just too intense and want to win no matter what.  I'm happy losing games if I blew a few people up.
