I’m relatively new to Halo, having only played it for a couple of months. I’m a quick learner, though, and I’m getting better fast. I have completed Reach’s entire campaign on Legendary, and I have played through CEA’s campaign (although I don’t think I’ll bother doing the whole thing on Legendary). I play the social playlists better than most of the other random Joes I get matched up with on any given day, and I just ranked up to Colonel. I earned rank by doing the daily challenges for the past couple weeks.
But I am a newbie when it comes to Slayer, Swat, Sniper, and the other competitive playlists. Frankly, I get my -Yoink- kicked. I’d REALLY like to improve, but it is hard when you’re matched up with a bunch of random kids each game – half of whom don’t have any sense of strategy at all, and half of whom are just there to “run and gun” and betray their own team members when they get bored.
So, here’s what I’d like to find:
I’d like to join a group where I can learn how to play the more competitive playlists well. I’d like to learn strategy and teamwork from people who know what they’re doing and are willing to teach me. I can practice with a team frequently, but it would have to be in the evenings between 7-11 pm (Mountain Time, US) and weekends.
Why would anyone want me? Here is what I bring to the table:
I’m new to Halo, yes, but I’m getting better fast. I’m motivated and (to make a little public confession) I tend to get obsessed with things and work really hard at them. I’m also a REAL team player. I enjoy comaraderie. I don’t get frustrated easily. Most people find me easy to get along with. I have no problem teaming up with people of any age.
For the time being I have a wireless internet connection that is quite good, and within the next month we’re going to get the XBOX connected directly to the cable, so the internet connection should be EXCELLENT.
I am also investing in a set of really nice headphones like pro gamers use, because I’ve heard that they improve your play.
So, there it is. That’s what I’m looking for. I’m hoping to find a community of people I can team up with in the evenings and go out and kick some serious -Yoink-, rather than just dinking around with random whoevers.
Anyone want a new member? If so, please tell me a little bit about your team, clan, organization and we’ll see if we’re a match.
