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.
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.
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.
