Im stuck at 2k, and im going down. I potato so much. Most of my games are either unicum or I do 3 shots of damage and i die. I think i play too aggressive, and die too early. I have trouble figuring out if i have shots at someone. I spend a lot of time not doing anything of great importance. I dont really know how to read the teams and react. Dont know how to read the minimap that well. Dont know when to retreat. How do you get pubbies to work for/with you? I cant really do fluid gameplay. I like to stay in one area. I dont know how to not stay in one area while remaining effective. I cant tell if im needed somehwere. 

 

Any tips you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

i hope this post from nearly 2 years ago is still relevant

 

It's very important to conserve your hit points throughout the course of every battle. The more hit points you conserve early in the match the more you can spend to pull off clutch wins in the end. I try and minimize risky pushes and ballsy flanking maneuvers while still maintaining a presence on the map.

 

Play the 2nd line and take advantage of enemies that are in the open, don't push or over extend when you don't know what's ahead of you. The ONLY time you should ever be running out into the open is when you absolutely KNOW what you're running into. If you have the armor and/or speed to sustain taking a few shots and as long as the reward is much better than the risk then it's okay to push.

 

Map knowledge takes first priority, knowledge of firing lines on both sides of each map is VERY important. Always have an escape plan, never overextend so far that you can't retreat without being shot. Know the limits of how far you can push without putting yourself in unnecessary danger. Practice on playing conservatively whilst being in a position to capitalize on the enemies' mistakes and when your position is compromised, have an escape plan and retreat to another firing position without putting yourself in sight of the enemy.

If I were you I would upload some replays of common games, maybe a pack of 5-10 games. That way some of the good players can give you feedback as to what you seem to be doing wrong, especially if they find a pattern. Doing a misstake here and there and someone pointing them out is not gonna help you as much as if someone sees the misstake pattern. Just my 2 cents.

I think i play too aggressive, and die too early. I have trouble figuring out if i have shots at someone. I spend a lot of time not doing anything of great importance. I dont really know how to read the teams and react. Dont know how to read the minimap that well.

 

 

I like watching replays of 4k+ damage players, since their style of play is both cautious to guarantee their consistency while still being aggressive enough to generate such high damage numbers in the first place. By watching how they react to situations and what spots they use, I can steal good (and sometimes op) positions and use them appropriately.

 

If you want to play aggressive but don't have a retreat plan, then play less aggressive; at-least enough to guarantee your escape if necessary.

 

Read teams by glancing at the mini-map between shots. Analyze team line-ups and predict where both teams will go, keep it in mind, and update that info in your mind as the enemy gets spotted. If they become unspotted, predict their position until they become spotted again. Generally the amount of icons on each flank and the positioning of the icons in combination with map knowledge tells you what you need to know.

 So I watched some of your replays, kind of skimmed over them. However I noticed you do lose hp early on a lot more than you should. So what Aqua posted would be helpful. You also tend to get yourself into bad spots IE the Windstorm battle in your 140 when you pushed up too far and the E5 and IS-7 were there. Once you took out the 132 you should have fell back a little since the IS-7 and E5 were spotted and moving up. It seems like to tend to get too aggressive, and while being aggressive isn't a problem in itself, when you rush in without knowledge of what is ahead it tends to end badly . Like the battle on Mountainpass in your T-54 you rushed the K line without knowing what was there before hand (I understand that people will say/do stupid things when they are angry, but you probably should have just left that match instead of raging at the team). You pretty much never want to rush into a forward spot unless you know you will get there first and will be able to win it, or escape easily if you can't win it.

 

 

 Basically just conserve your hp for a little, pay attention to the map and what is going on, and then use your hp to win a flank or carry hard.

 

tldr, what Aqua said.
