Some of you may know me from Eu servers, most wont but I tend to play on quite experienced FFA servers where the playesr are usually better than me and certainly play more, I have been Tier 4 but I am now Tier 3 again. Compared to most players who come top or near top I have been playing for a relatively short time , only 5 days in game time but I have Q3 and veteran gaming experience. I have good aim, decent accuracy, know the maps pretty well and can normally come top 5 or top 25% of a server. But my issue is I die too much. Even when I am 2nd or 3rd I often have the highest deaths.
I guess it has to do with where you head from spawn but I always feel I am in a rock/paper/scissors situation and lose it too many times, I just cant get to a 1st weapon quick enough or I am ambushed when I get there, yes I could stick with MG and might get a cheap kill or 2 but meanwhile there are guys who are leaving me behind. Once I have the right weapon and get comfortable I can often get a decent streak together , its getting to that point I struggle with. Any tips?
