Tips for virgins
1// Check your settings, especially controls.
2// Play the tutorial, and make sure you're happy with your controls!
3// Go on a server.
4// Find a player who has similar stats to you (hover over their name).
5// Challenge them by clicking on them.
6// Have fun playing - you might lose a lot at first, but you'll improve quickly. Don't rage quit, you'll never improve and it's bad form.
7// Your priority is picking up cubes (by pressing DOWN on them) and returning them to your base. Two or three at a time gives you more points per cube. The primary benefit of killing the opponent is getting some alone time to gather up cubes.
8// The sparkly '?' crates are power-ups and can change the flow of a game, so pick them up if you can.
9// Bombs are very effective if you can afford the points and can guess where the opponent's going to be in about 3 seconds' time.
10// Remember to start buying perks as soon as you can afford it - you can buy as many as you want and have up to 4 active at any time. Choose ones that fit your playing style.
11// Chat with players in the lobby
12// Have fun, even when you're getting your bottom kicked - it happens to everyone!

Any more?

I started yesterday and immediatly won loads just because people didn't seem to be prioritising cubes. As a beginner, that's the number one thing that was getting me victories. To do better that that, I'd say learn to use bombs. Basically anyone who could do that was killing me.

I'm still feeling bad about the many newbies, who didn't have a clue what was going on, got stomped by me. I mean, they were just runing around trying to learn the controls and if I got lucky, tried shooting me. I compeltely ignored them and grabbed my cubes (ok, I have to admit that I dropped a bomb on them if they got to close)....
Seriously, I played for the first time on Friday and won 4 matches straight. All I did before jumping on a server was checking out the tutorial.

Experience is the best teacher, after all. I had one match like that too lol.

Thanks for the tips! I plan on blaming you if I never get better at this game.

Special Weapons: generally better used at long-range, especially the Big Nuke. And the ZapZap take a moment for the projectile to form, so don't hammer away at the fire button, get a shot off every two seconds or so.
