One of them is a good shot. I can drone for him and he can pick up kills. But he's the Bandit that constantly needs told what to do with his gadget. And sometimes he does stupid run outs and dies. Or sometimes he doesn't choose Bandit randomly even though we need him and no one else but me and him can Bandit trick, but I need to play Smoke and Echo, because no one else can.
Another listens to my words down to the note, and heeds them, but had trouble landing shots and struggles when I can't give him guidance.
Another has OK aim, decent sense in knowing what to peek when to push but is really at a miss when it comes to attack and defence. Sometimes tries gimmicks or casual strats like fast dropping the cockpit hatch in Plane when attack Meeting/Exec. In ranked, against Plats, that's instant death.
I know I'm not exactly perfect. I miss shots too. It's not like I get 13 kills every game, all headshots. No, of course I miss and choke, and fail and throw rounds. Of course from time to time I do stupid run outs or over look things or forget things. But, mostly I learn. And I try my best to help them improve generally, I know I can be unnecessarily negative if they make a mistake. But ultimately, I know what I'm doing. I have the spots that I know I need to play. I have enough experience to know what to do in almost every event that could occur (that's not to say I'll necessarily always come out on top, but I know how much give myself the highest chance of surviving) and each of my spots on each site on each map. Except Yacht because fuck Yacht (and Bartlett, that's aids too). But that's the thing. I'm the only one with a spot, or spots. The only person either a role. I'm hard roamer turned hard anchor on Defence and on attack I'm Entry Fragger turned whatever-my-friends-don't-want-to-doer.
The others do what they want. If they want to roam, they'll roam. Want to anchor? They'll anchor. Unless, I say otherwise. You might think it's great having people that value your opinion so much, but them relying on it is the problem. I can only get so many comprehensible words out per second. If we need a run out at some point, I'll say at the start of the round, and someone will get in position. Then they'll miss the opportunity, or run out really common spot and get claymored. They don't think outside the box.
I know they try their best, and they are good people, and I'm not perfect either, but I'm competitive and my rank means a lot to me and it hurts to see us lose to the same mistakes over and over.
Sorry to burden you with my rant, lol
