on a scale of one to ten, how good do you think I am? Please state at least one way you think I could improve. I just want to know what everyone thinks of me. I also want to improve.

Since you failed to specify whether 1 or 10 was high, I chose 5 so that I'd split the difference.

No other reason.

:D

I said 5, but that's because -1+2-3+4-5+6-7+8-9+10=5... ^_^
HAPPY PI DAY!!! :D

Dennis,

It is hard to guage your experience since I haven't played with you that much; having said that, I haven't seen you playing enough to give you better than a three or four.

If I had to rate myself though, I would only give myself a six or a seven. I reserve the nines for the truly obsessed and those without social encounters outside of TreadMarks and to date I have only played two players whom I could rate as consistent tens.

While this game is easy to play, it is hard to master.

Use Dinochrome to practice your aiming skills, just ask 666 he loved it for the arcade experience.

Shoot the sides and the rear corners when you can, look for crowds, hang back and sneak in for the kill.

P. S., that's not my style, I tend to blunder in or make you come and finish me off.

10's...yes...I know which 2 I'd choose, unfortunately neither of them play TM anymore.

9's are also rare, only a couple fall under that level.

The vast majority of players are 6 or lower.

Actually. there are quite a few very good players that you've never even met, Dennis. I'd say a lot of the top players no longer play:

Irasaciable, Superunknown, Keato, JL, LDA Phillip, etc

Of course, we also have lost a lot of mediocre players over the years, too :)

The current top players (8-9), as I fight, are: Coax (well in the lead), Pablito, Max, 666, and K. In the next tier (7): Kong, Red, Carnage, GMan, etc.

I'm sure I missed people, sorry if your name isn't there and you feel you should be. My mind went blank half way through trying to come up with players :)

Also, note: The people in level 7 are still supurb players...they just can't match the skill of those in levels 8-10.

Well, I realy would play more, but I live in a house with three other people! It's hard to get on the internet here, and many of the matches are at crazy times in my zone. :lol:

Heh: Take sundays one for example, GMT: 1!!! 1!!! even if it's 1PM I'll probably be out, or my sister will be using the pc for homework or something!!! :x

...Pablito, Max, 666, and K. In the next tier .... in the next tier!? :P how many times do I need to win amongst all to not be on the next tier!? :lol:

All of these are very good players and may take #1 at any game (unless I'm playing :twisted: )
Kevorkian, Random Chaos, Max, Harmless, Pablo, Gman, Carnage, MelonCraker, 666, Vortex The Barbarian, Girl Tank, Yugo, Coaxs, Viper-II, Red...


Dennis needs to shut his mouth (or I should say stop typing), concentrate in playing, use a real tank (metal) and play more. I think you're a 6 now but could be a 9 easily. (he only uses keyboard :lol: :wink: )

Most good players use keyboard and mouse and few gpad's...

I only use keyboard.

And I usually don't turn my turret.

75% of your list I forgot about, Pablito, but then my memory is a sieve for names.

I only use keyboard, always turn my turret, but rarely use the turret cam as I can aim better without. :D

I don't use turret. I only use keyboard (yay keyboard). I sometimes turn the turret (accidently). Coaxs and Pablo are the best two I ever met (my opinion), and I type too much (hardly anyone to talk to at home). If anyone has not faced me, give me an EST time in private message, and I will try to be there. If I can't, I will pm you back saying so. I would have posted yesterday, but I couldn't access lda.

Let us not forget the top missing (but surely he's listening) player doesn't use his turret either. I've said it before, love him or hate him, Irascible earned his 10.

The only other player I would put near him for consistency (meaning I've beat him a few more times than I've beat Irascible and those times were very, very rare.) is BZP. He can be seen, on occasion, playing at Dinochrome but, he really stopped playing when TMLogScan disappeared unless he is playing on Killier's systems.

I'm sure there will be those who will feel snubbed by this but I know a lot of names I would give an eight. Higher than that takes a certain kind of player as stated earlier. Few of the still playing veterens do have lives to follow outside of TM and until one or two of them hits the lottery, you won't see a lot of players make the 10.
