Have any of you more elite players gotten into the bad habit of when you shoot someone you just assume they are dead? This happens to me all the time and I kick myself each time. I am so used to knowing i get head shots that I just assume I shoot them and then I turn my back or something and get shot. Stupid me.

I don't have tunnel-vision when I play. My focus is on the game in whole, not on just my crosshairs. If I don't see them fall, and I don't see "Mgineer killed so-n-so", then I'm still shootin'. I wouldn't consider that an "elite" mistake. If they can't tell when they kill someone, maybe they're not so elite after all, lol.

I used to look to see if they died and all that too, but lately like I said Ive gotten so used to getting kills every time I shoot that I dont do it anymore. Thus the point of the whole thread. Mgineer, add me to your list and you can see what elite is http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

no man you know what really sucks, when you are a shooting someone and you are positive you are going to kill that person with the next shot and then you shoot but someone else gets killed and you see the name appear on the screen and you assume it's you eliminating the opponent. this happened to me a couple of time already..

lol puppyslinger, my comments were just a generalization, and not necessarily directed towards you. I always shoot for the head as well, and I have never had the problem you described, hence my comments still stand. I die from getting shot by another good player, not becuase I'm not aware of my surroundings and/or whom I've killed. Aside from that, you claim to be elite, and that you'll show me what it is to be elite, but I looked up your stats, and you're nowhere near elite status. Roughly 1450 kills to 700 deaths, just slightly over a 2.0 ratio, that doesn't exactly scream "elite", sorry buddy. 3-4 kill ratio, I'd respect you as an elite player, but 2 just won't cut it. Don't get me wrong, your stats show you're a good player, but elite means the best of the best, and that, my friend, you are not. I'm at about slightly under 2, very close to your ratio, with alot less kills/deaths, but you have over 3 times the hours logged, I might add. I consider myself a good player, not elite, and I wouldn't in your shoes either. Aside from that, I'm not pressed for stats, and I play alot of silly matches, like me n my team will use only M1's, while the other team uses anything, to try to even the playing fields, as me n my friends dominate most games we create normally, so alot of my deaths come from these types of matches. But regardless, I'd love to see your self-proclaimed "elite" status in action, and I'll look for you the next time I'm on.

mgineer, i see what you are saying. I dont mean to get into a pissing contest. From my experience, the nastiest players in this game have from 1.7-2.5 ratio. I say this because Ive played with the best and some of them have real easy rooms and some of us have very very tough rooms. The random people that come into our room from optimatch or something usually only stay for a couple rounds and its very rare to see anyone get more than 2 kills. Anyway just look me up and you will see.

Yes, Slinger I know what you are talking about. I don't consider myself to be an 'elite' however. I do play with the best of them though. I myself was so accustomed to making a headshot every time with the trusty M-16, that it got me in trouble. My solution -I now use the Famas, or G36C. Sure, I have been getting killed more since I've stopped using the M-16, but I am learning to use the Famas, and G36C in an efficient manner. They are turning out to be a more efficient weapon set due to -in most cases I zoom to get a kill -in turn making my shots with more care.

Well if that's the case, puppyslinger, then I apologize for the tone of my post, but it seemed like you were boasting that you'd automatically whip my arse, and I'm not one to back down from a challenge. I don't wanna get into pissing contests either, it's just not my style. I don't trash-talk (unless it's with friends, all in good fun) if I kill or get killed, and I always give props to those who take me out, refraining from comments like "lucky shot" or critisizing one's play style. But regardless, I'm still down for some matches if you still wanna, and if you are indeed more skilled than I, even better. Like most good players, I hone my skills playing against those who are better, not weaker opponents.

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Nothing to brag about, everyone elimates me at the moment. What I would be ashamed of is the "SKULLS Hawk eliminated Your Lost Twin". http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/mockface.gif

My only bad habit, is getting killed because I can't shoot for banana's. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/crazy.gif
