First off, welcome to the World of BZFlag

Since your new it's best to start playing by your radar.

--Learn to dodge by using your radar-- The best places to learn how to 'radar dodge' are the places like Hepcat/Pillbox, Hix and Ducati maps. Some Hix maps require you to be apart of The GU League, i'll explain to you about 'leagues' later on. When playing at any of these maps have your radar as big as you can by going Options --> GUI Settings. Hepcat/Pillbox and Ducati maps in particular have jumping disabled so it's a must to learn how to use your radar if you want to survive :P

Now, there are quite a few leagues. The most popular the GU League so that would be a good place to start BUT I suggest getting alot of practice in first. The League Players are the best players in the game right now. Best place to start is Hepcat for Radar Dodging and to expand your skills with flags and jumping the best maps for those is Badgerkings and Planet MoFo.


Leagues
The GU League
The Ducati League
The Pillbox League
The 1 Vs 1 League

Good Luck and Remember to Have Fun :D

Welcome. I hope to see you playing some time soon.

I never make stupid mistakes. Only very, very clever ones.
It is not the fall that kills you. It's the sudden stop at the end.
Always remember you are unique. Just like everybody else.
