I am currently a 1st-year medical student. Because of my schedule, I end up logging on at strange hours most of the time and I usually have to play alone because my friends are all asleep. Now I don’t think I’m a bad player; my K/D in Halo 4 team slayer was 1.959, which I think is a decent K/D. But the thing is, I always played with friends back then so I had reliable teammates. Now when I play solo, I get matched up with people who I can’t count on for even one second. So my question is: how do I perform well when placed in a team that lacks coordination and faced with a team that runs like clockwork? What advice can successful lone wolves give me to do well consistently even in games where the odds are stacked against me?
My overall technical skill is pretty good (I think) just based on how I handle 1-on-1 (and sometimes 1-on-2) encounters. I can usually come out on top when squaring off against just one person, but 99% of the time I engage someone, at least 2 of his teammates are there to back him up while my teammates are off doing whatever. It absolutely frazzles me when my teammates are mindlessly charging, running around the center of the map, leaving power weapons for the enemy to pick up, etc. So I’m looking for tactical advice here. Thanks in advance. Unless you post something like “just get better.” Then you can go -Yoink- yourself.
