It sounds like you can't handle protecting and getting the new people through even on easy.

I found it a joyful challenge helping out the new players. Just when it got monotaneous with everybody knowing where everything is..The fun was seeing the new players experience the stuff for the first time. Surviving with 3 new players was a rewarding and fun challenge trying to keep them alive and get them to the end of the campaign.

While I agree with Redtachi: it frustrates me to be unable to complete Normal playthroughs because I overestimated my teams' abilities. (The Sacrifice/Passing Finale)

Kinda true to be honest i played versus and 60 % of my health was my team mate damage to me!

Wow, that's so unfair. If I am an ultrahypermegahardcore player, I would take the lead of the team and give instructions to those peasant noobs that you love to criticize, because every freaking player is a noob when plays a new game, including you.

I agree with this to an extent. I've been playing exclusively Normal campaigns the last couple of days specifically to interact with new players, and usually it's gone fine, but I had a game on No Mercy earlier today that we simply couldn't finish. We tried the finale four times and never survived (the last time, I was the lone survivor and actually got smoked on the landing pad 10 feet from the helo).

The problem isn't new players, it's players (of any level) who don't pay attention. When you get the same guy making the same mistakes over and over again, my enthusiasm to help them starts to drop.

I have similar experiences.

At least the new players are nice, meaning they arent swearing or such, but very few are willing to learn.
I mean, if someone says: "guys im new to this game, so sorry if i do something wrong..."
then its perfectly okay.

But running around, backwards, shooting me while i heal them, not taking pills when i give them and they are close to incap, shooting every witch though they already know she wont die that easily, etc., thats annoying a bit.

So if you are new and reading this, its fine, just try to learn from others, ask if you dont know anything, and most importantly, play single player games to familiarize yourself with the different maps, it helps a lot.

Edit: i forgot this: manners.
Maybe im old fashioned, but why am i the only one who greets others when i join a game?
Saying a "Hi" is that hard?

This ranks 2nd on my list of pet-peeves with teammates: those who can't learn from mistakes. The 1st on my list are those who don't communicate. You want to be LESS helpful than the bot? I'd rather just vote to kick you at that point: noncommunitive and prone to mistakes.

When I used to play RTS games a lot, if I was the game host, I'd say hello to everyone who joined. If someone didn't answer me in a reasonable amount of time, I'd kick them. Not answering a simple greeting tells me you either don't speak English or don't care enough to grace us with your communication skills, and in either case I don't want you in my game.

In that No Mercy match I mentioned in my last post, our best round was actually one where one of our allies ragequit. The bot did far better.

Good to know there are still players who have manners.

Though i never votekicked anybody for this, sometimes really bothers me why cant people greet each others in games, its not that hard. Even my friends said im overreacting this greeting stuff...

And yeah, if a player is worse than a bot, thats bad.
Yesterday i was smoked and my teammates gathered around me like the bots, trying to shoot the Smoker (he was partially in cover), i only needed a melee on me, but they didnt know that.

It was a partly funny, partly annoying experience.

Stop being an elitist ♥♥♥♥♥ and just do something else if it's no longer fun.

But then he can't cry for attention on the forums! That's no fun at all!

hehe, it was fun with "new players" to get this achievement, I had like 14 si in one map :) And me being a rightful Zawi :) Protecting new players feels even better playing as her :P
