How Not To Be Retarded - Vol. 4Listen To Other Players
I know. This advice is completely contradictory to yesterday's advice. Theoretically, if every just shut the f&%@ up, then you wouldn't have to listen to other people.
See, I'm allowed to contradict myself. I change my mind all the time and, even if I don't, many of my strongest opinions are entirely at odds with each other.
I truly believe that
1) people should shut the hell up
2) you should listen to others
Yeah. Try and figure that shit out.
Now, I'm not saying you should listen to anything that manages to escape from some moron's mouth. That would fall into a future theme week called "How To Be SuperMechaGundam Retarded."
Still, people can say a lot of smart shit when you're in a party.
They might play the job you're leveling. They might have more experience than you.
Hell, they might just be smarter than you.
Yes, that is a possibility.
Not smarter than me, of course, but that goes without saying.
Well, it could have gone without saying, but I do so enjoy pointing out how smart I am.
Your best bet is to listen to what other players say and then use your own experience to sift through it for anything useful. Sure, the majority of it is going to be remarkably idiotic bullshit, but every now and then you might stumble across something important.
Somewhere, buried beneath metric tons of retardation, you might just find something that could make you a better player.
Even a moron has to get lucky some time, right?
Give that monkey a keyboard and see what he can do. When he's not busy throwing his shit at you, he could be breaking off some serious knowledge.
I'm pretty sure that's how Brady Guides are written.
Minus the knowledge part.
Now, listening to others is not an easy skill to master. No, no. Every part of your brain will be straining to shut out the droning stupidity.
Should you, however, manage to survive the onslaught, you may be rewarded for your troubles.
Then, by all of us listening to the good advice of others, we can all become better players.
And THEN, I can go back to ignoring all of your asses and trying to get me some exp.
