Depends on the map.

Ha You Got Shot By Me's Mini CTF: 5-6, on a good day, maybe a 7-8
Jefenry's 4-Team Aztec Ballcourt: 4-5
HiX: 3-4
Any predominantly WG server: Depends on other players' skill:
they're bad: 4-5, good day 6-7
they're good: SKVV: 3-4 NS:1-2 :oops:

I agree with bucko, depends on the map. Sometimes I rock on some maps, other's I'm horrible. It also depends on the players that you're playing with. I wouldn't give myself a rating but I would say I'm a decent player :)

My playing ability

Post by Candycorndestroyer »

First of all, as has been said, the map really determines my playing ability, but I'll try to give my elf-ratings based on map styles.
FFA=3-5
CTF=6-9
1v1=7-9
Airborne=4-7
Bullets maintain vertical velocity=6-8
High Speed=7-9
Paintball, jump in=8-10 for sure

I'd say 5 to 6.
I've been playing since 2.0 was brand new and have all the basic weapons and tactics down.. Even developed a new one I haven't seen used before that time that I dissiminated to my brother first and then slowly it got picked up by many.
But I don't play enough and my reflexes are to slow to really kick butt.

I wasn't being humble, I'd only been playing for a couple of days, 0/10 seemed a rather fair assessment. Until my score goes into the positive numbers (more kills than deaths), I will consider myself 0/10, because I die more than I kill.

Having a score in the negatives definitely does NOT mean you are a 0/10. You could be having a down day, or have not warmed up yet. Even if you always have negatives, you are still learning, so therefore you are better than a player who has just started the game for a the first time. *That* is probably a 0/10, not you.

Give yourself credit for actually playing. You will get better, everybody gets better at the things they do as they practice, give it time.

3-5 on non superflag maps with rico (I really hate rico)
6-8 on non superflag maps without rico (non rico. is this heaven?)
superflag maps where I'm good 7-8 usually i'll get 20+ in a hour
superflag maps where I'm bad 3-5
non crowded mofo when I have BU like 8-9 some days 10 If have N you are still in trouble on those some days. my worst enemy when I have BU is myself :wink:

no matter where I go I start slow and do better as time goes on

1v1 2
wings with vertical velocity 8-9
wings without 7ish

these are under approx standard settings, if for example at missile wars my ctf would be 5ish, too flag dependent

I already rated myself once, but I've gotten better now. I think I'm now about a 5 on average, and still a 7 at best.

when i think about it it is actually hard to rate yourself, especially if you play against and with a range of players who all have different strategies

6-8 on a CTF, but recently I have started playing with the mouse so my score has dipped down to a 4-5 and is slowly rising each day I play

I would rate myself as 2-3 on GU server, 4-5 on a free for all server, but on a CTF server 2-8, depending on my teammates, and how good of a day I am having.
