Getting the Better of your Online Opponent

Getting the Better of your Online Opponent
Published by: forahobby on Wednesday, June 13, 2018
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox 360, Xbox Live, Xbox One,

Whatever your game, playing online takes practice and perseverance to get the better of the other players. Youngsters will more often than not learn the physical moves a bit quicker, but there is no reason that older players can't work it out and be just as effective in competition.

Getting the Better of your Online Opponent

Being competitive is what playing these games is all about and if you don't know how to improve your play, then the games will lose your interest very quickly. It doesn't matter whether you want to play at the highest level or just against your mates, winning is why we play games.

However, whether it be the first-person shooter (FPS) games or online poker, without any help, it can take a long time to master the tricks of the trade. But, there are tips which can help you speed up your improvement. Below we've outlined a short list of hints and tricks that should help anyone wanting to get better at winning.

Starting the Game

If you're a complete newbie to online FPS game-playing then, first of all, familiarize yourself with the controls. Only a few years ago, controls were easy to master…there were only one or two buttons. Today's controllers have a multitude of buttons (up to ten!), and some of them are multi-functional in some games. So, firstly work out what they all do and learn the mix combinations. It's worth remembering that there are quite a few variations on a game controller as well - the Sony PlayStation Dualshock 4, the Microsoft Xbox One Controller, the Razer Sabretooth, the Logitech, the Nyki 80660 etc. might all look similar but they all their devotees who revel in the minor differences. Whatever your tool, learn to use it like it was part of you. Only practice will do.

Learn the Easy Way

Whatever game you want to play competitively, always start on the easiest difficulty. With first-person shooter games, this will mean that everything will be slower and you'll get to see and learn the mechanics of the game. Practice hard until you're comfortable before moving to the intermediate and then harder difficulties. There is no rush and if you haven't mastered one element, then keep practising it before you move on.

If online poker is your chosen game, then it is important that you start at the low-stakes tables. There are two very good reasons; firstly, you're not going to be taken for lots of money by the more experienced players on a high stakes table, and secondly, you're more likely to be playing with other relative newbies who are learning the game like you. You're all going to make mistakes, but at least the losses won't be so high. Even if you are new to the game, you need to be careful you don’t display any of the classic online poker tells, they can leave you as a target for those that know what to look for.

Patience

The younger you are then it is likely that you'll possess less of this valuable asset. As they say, ''Rome wasn't built in a day''. No one became an online sharpshooter overnight, and no one won the World Series of Poker without having spent many hours learning the game and exercising lots of patience. With FPS games, there is a lot to learn - work out the geography of the game, understand your weapons (rate of fire, distance etc.). With games like Battlefield and Call of Duty, knowing the lay of the land is vital if you're ever going to be good at them. With poker, you'll need to understand the timing of opponents moves and what they mean considering the state of play and how that opponent might have played before. Learn to recognise when an opponent is using the pre-action check or fold button. Learn how an opponent’s avatar name can give away his style of play or his age - which again can dictate the way he or she will play.

Battlefield 5 Announced For Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC

Battlefield 5 Announced For Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC
Published by: forahobby on Tuesday, May 29, 2018
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox Live, Xbox One,

DICE and Electronic Arts have officially announced that Battlefield V will be available worldwide on October 19th, 2018 for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Battlefield V

Featuring a fresh portrayal of one of mankind’s biggest conflicts, Battlefield V allows players to feel the unmatched intensity of all-out war and travel to unexpected but crucial moments of World War 2 through new and signature multiplayer modes, single-player War Stories and the cooperative Combined Arms. In Battlefield V, embark on a continuing, grand journey post-launch in the brand new Tides of War, created to make sure the battlefield is constantly evolving with new events, challenges, battles, and rewards that are always within reach – for all Battlefield V owners*.

Battlefield V multiplayer will deliver the most immersive gameplay of the franchise in a sandbox environment that portrays the battles of World War 2, allowing players to feel the force of the fight and truly shape the war as the war shapes them. Players’ soldiers can now tow stationary weapons, build fortifications and repair war-torn structures to turn the battlefield to the player’s advantage. Whether dragging a squad mate to safety or shooting a grenade out of the sky, players will forge a deeper connection to the ever-evolving world around them and achieve victory against the toughest odds. With the freedom to adapt and evolve the battlefield in new and unseen ways, the battlefield will never be the same.

Battlefield V is a homecoming for DICE as a studio—a return to the era that came to define the Battlefield franchise. But as nostalgic as we are about World War 2, we wanted to challenge the preconception of the era with an unexpected portrayal of this familiar setting. Our vision with Battlefield V is to let players explore new and untold sides of the conflict that shaped the modern world,” said Oskar Gabrielson, General Manager, DICE. “The scale of each battle and level of immersion is unlike anything we’ve done before in Battlefield and players are in for an epic journey.”

In new and classic multiplayer modes, player can lead their own unique Company to victory in a dynamic multiplayer experience where every battle is unique. The Company allows players to create and deeply customize their soldiers, weapons and vehicles that will evolve as they progress, covering everything from the way they look to the way they play. Fan favorite modes like the 64-player Conquest return, with the game’s multiplayer culminating in Grand Operations, an all-new live, event-based experience within Tides of War. These multimap, multi-mode dynamic events take players through vast historical battles to relive moments of bravery and desperation while fighting to the final objective.

The acclaimed single-player campaign mode from Battlefield 1, War Stories, returns for Battlefield V. Witness the conflict through the eyes of men and women of World War 2 and experience untold stories of human drama, filled with Battlefield moments. Experience the freezing Norwegian landscapes as a young Norwegian resistance fighter or come ashore into the desert heat of North Africa - and more.

Tides of War is DICE’s new approach to live services, where players will set out on an epic journey with their Company in unexpected battles throughout World War 2. There will be no premium pass, all players will have access to the same maps and modes, keeping the community unified as they progress through Battlefield V. In Tides of War, their journey through World War 2 will grow through themed experiences that will include events and all-new ways to play like Grand Operations, while also unlocking the latest themed rewards such as weapons and vehicles to further shape their Company.

Get the first look at Battlefield V and World War 2 as never seen before:


Tune in to the EA PLAY Press Conference on June 9th when we debut Grand Operations to the world.

Battlefield V will be available worldwide October 19th on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Origin for PC. Those that order the Battlefield V Deluxe Edition will get access three days early on October 16**, while EA Access and Origin Access members† will be able to jump into the Play First Trial on October 11. Players that pre-order any edition of the game with the Battlefield V Enlister Offer will get early access to the Open Beta and other in-game benefits including soldier customization options, access to Special Assignments starting at launch week and immediate access to five weapons to use in Battlefield 1**. Xbox is the console marketing partner for Battlefield V and NVIDIA is the PC marketing partner.

In celebration of the upcoming launch, EA and DICE are giving all Battlefield players the opportunity to download content from Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 4 for free on the Road to Battlefield V. Now for a limited time, players can download and keep Battlefield 1 In the Name of Tsar and Battlefield 4 Final Stand**.
