What do you listen to while you're playing?

Post by Axl » Wed Apr 25, 2007 4:44 pm

We've established that a lot of people listen to music while playing bzflag... my question is, what do you listen to? Is one type of music better than another, as far as annihilating others goes? Share your thoughts.

well...i rarley do listen to music whilst playing. simply because the sound on the game can help (incoming guided missiles) but i quite like my rock and heavy rock. but i strongly recommend DEATH METAL whilst playing. its gets you in the mood to KILL.

I've been into Bluegrass lately, but I can't recommend it to improve your game. I notice no difference. Of course, if you absolutely can't stand it, it will probably ruin it :)

Ah! Another Kraftwerk fan!

I also recently discovered a group called Orbital to listen to while playing.

Most classic rock stuff is good too. Listening to music does seem to improve my game, I turn the sound effects down low so that I can still hear improtant stuff like GMs, but it doesn't interfere with the music.

I mostly listen to classic rock.

I never make stupid mistakes. Only very, very clever ones.

what i normally listen to. hard rock & heavy metal (mostly 80's), power metal, symphonic/progressive metal. music works both ways. it can work like caffeine, sharpening your senses, or it can distract you. if i start to suck badly, i switch it off. 8)

Back in the day when I had music playing in the background. It would be things like Evanescence, Flyleaf, Seether, Nickelback, 30STM, 3 doors down, Panic at the Disco, Pete Murray, Hinder, James Blunt, Staind etc., etc., :P

I listen to music 99% of the time I spend at my iMac. My current playlist features a lot of Orson, Razorlight, a little The Fray and a touch of The Cars.
My most listened to music of all time include various tracks by The Kooks, Fall Out Boy, Will Smith, The Futureheads, etc.

Nothing, Nodda.......I do not play with sound at all. But if I did i guess it would be the classic rock of the 80's.
