Clueless Newcomers
on: May 14, 2019, 10:58:45 PM
Is it just me or does almost every match with an unranked player they dont seem to know what they are supposed to do? They do one or more of these things...

Shoot elites to death
Melee the elite when they have aleph especially heavies
Not grab aleph...AT ALL
Trying to overload objectives with Aleph..but they don't have any
Ignore engineers/looters
Charging head first into enemy hordes without a plan or even realizing what the objective even is (the amount of times I had witnessed the noob(s) charge at the slicer tanks as soon as the mission starts is to much
Not using their abilities
Not taking cover
Complaining about not having ammo
Rage quit after dying 3 or more times

I know that MSE has put several tutorial videos up on the main menu but apparently no one watches them (I always watched or played tutorials and read manuals with every game so I don't suffer as much) so they go into a match thinking that it's just going to be another spunkgargleweewee shooter. Something needs to be done about it.

ive always said from day one dont throw players into the deep end without having some form of tutorial or training grounds to get the new player familiar with buttons and objectives the new pictures explaining is nice and all but unranked players are still trying to cqc kuzman so make this MORE OBVIOUS. i will say this to the whole development team till im blue in the face make it so we have a tutorial that holds the players hands and baby them through the basics and things on a need to know basis i.e fhis is an engineer and this is a looter blah blah blah also allow us to launch single or x players in party missions im tired of waiting 10min+ to run a mission especially when in a squad with a friend had been in a que so long my buddy just sonic cd'd me got tired of waiting to play and "im outta here" went to play another game

Oh, the new guys dying repeatedly and rage quitting because they can't grapple Kuzmann… It breaks my heart and yet I'm laughing the whole time. There does need to be an tutorial for more casual gamers who aren't used to it and don't know what to expect.

Bit of an anecdote for you, playing The Mouse and The Snake a couple of nights back with my son, some t3 Dion and a totally new Alicia... I spent the first few minutes watching this guy pressing all the buttons seeing what does what, grappling at the air, shooting the bridge levers, jumping repeatedly at a wall until they realised how to do her wall jump (where they straight away jumped over the edge and died). I added the person on PSN and did a few missions on mic with them until they knew the ropes. They're now playing the division instead because it wasn't for them sadly.

Seriously though, this just highlights the need for a hand holding, Cortez voiceovered, tutorial mission... Heck, Cortez could run you through the tutorial with Huey, Duey and Lewie helping as team mates or as comical side action.
