Hi, I'm a n00b!

Hello good people of BZFlag! :lol-old:

I'm new to the game, been playing it 4 days now, and I pretty much suck at it. However, I've noticed a small improvement in my play now. I usually linger around Two Tanks Laser sniping, and my first match put me down to -27! :oops: Now though, I get around -6. So I suppose i'm on the path to goodness.

JUR Told me to join here, he's a helpful guy and I'd like to thank him for teaching me some stuff!

Also, a funny story, I wondered why it was called laser sniping. I just realised you press B to zoom. I guess you learn something new every day! :D

Anyway, seeya around I guess!

Yep, as you started Bzflag.
And if you give a try, too, to other maps than laser-sniping, like ffa maps (different flags), or dodging maps (no jump), or ... then you will even learn much more each day! :)

And welcome to Bz!

Welcome to this fabulous game where tanks fly, turn invisible, and defy the laws of physics! Have fun, and don't worry about your score, you will get a lot better as time goes on. Concentrate on learning, and your score will naturally improve. Also, playing on Two Tanks is good, but also try and play on the dodge trainer maps and public HiX servers if you get the chance. Those are good for learning how to dodge, rico, etc. Hope to see you in-game soon!

Welcome. I would like to explain this quote to you.... but it's already to late. You will find this game is impossible to quit, so have fun.

NOOOO! Please! Turn back! You'll regret it if you don't! Take my advice, don't become like me. You have a chance. Take it. DON'T PLAY THIS GAME! IT WILL GROW ON YOU UNTIL YOU CAN'T STOP!
