My issue is at what point to do I not feel guilty about dicking around and watching my team go down in flames when I know we could/should win? In particular, when the AVS crew would play and I was trying to get those dumbass sniper assignments done, I'd think about how we should be crushing the other team; how I'd have 50+ kills and all the objectives if I were in a tank instead of hiding in the hills and going 3-0 sniping, taking zero flags, and not helping at all. The competitive side of me has a hard time justifying that crap.Example:
Was playing one day and some dips#it on the other team kept taking a jet and going skyward. I thought he was trying to get us to follow him into the upper atmosphere, get us to stall, and have his team shoot us down with the AA gun. I killed this kid 26 straight times, many of which were roadkills. Let me repeat that...TWENTY SIX STRAIGHT TIMES!!!
Finally, he got his RPG kill on me that he'd apparently been so desperately trying to get. Sure enough, I get a message instantly, saying how "good" he was, blah, blah, blah. So, at 1-26, that's "good?" Yay. You got a 3 second clip to put on YouTube. Do I really want to be THAT
guy? Sadly, his wingman couldn't get anything done, despite being a decent pilot, because he had nobody to watch his back with this kid's selfish d-bag play.
I realize that it sounds as though I'm saying that a team can't win without me. That's not remotely true, but there have been lots and lots of matches where myself or me and another AVSer could easily turn things around or dominate completely, simply by being aggressive and taking flags. Even on a s#itty map like Metro, I can make a difference by supplying ammo, etc. In BF4 with 64 players, one man isn't going to make much of a difference, but I still can't see myself doing anything like what I described above or sitting back and tank sniping like a "I just wanna play muh game" pu$$y without guilt feelings unless we have some ridiculous lead or things are completely hopeless.
How do I break this mindset? To quote mph, "IDK."
