Why Noobs are getting owned so badly?

Prev13
Hey all, this is a thread on casuals or noobs and their experience on Battlefront.

I had my friend over playing on console as he is big Star Wars fan and saw the adverts for the game online. Anyway, over the hour of play he kept getting owned. Not surprising you say.

So he hasn't played online shooters in a while but It's not that he's a bad shot or a complete stranger to FPS titles, what kept happening in CQ was he landed most bolts on target but the experienced players would start strafing wildly left and right and avoid the killing bolt while spamming the trigger.

He of course had stopped moving and was concentrating on aiming. Boom zap ker-zowwww he's dead! Not head shot..just lit up and the guy sprints off with 4 health or something. He's like What the ****.

In this example the no bullet/bolt spread mechanic for strafing was really hurting his experience and he left kind of bummed out :(

So I put in to you sir that the no bolt/bullet spread from strafing is the bane of the casual gamer and not his saviour on the battlefront!

  • I would definitely be considered a noob. Haven't really played video games in 10 years or so and when I did I usually played sports titles. Now battlefront had/has me more excited about any video game than I've ever been excited for. I bought a PS4 just for this game title. 90% of the matches I've played have been walker assault or supremacy and I play the objectives. After the first 10-20 games my K/D ration was a pathetic 0.22. I'm now ranked around 27 with over a hundred matches and my K/D ratio has risen to 0.62. Most matches I play now I am right around 1:1 or slight better getting between 12 and 20 kills. The most kills I've had so far is 38 and my best K/D ratio so far was 22:3. So I say that to say I'm getting better. And if a old slow reflexes 44 year old can get better anybody can. Just takes some practice. Noobs rise up!
  • I'll use a term from the Say No to Rage YouTube channel that summed this game up nicely for me ... "Meat grinder."

    I like the game, and have been playing a lot. However, I get where he was coming from with this analogy. Most people don't tend to live long, often dying almost immediately after spawning. Enemies from across the map seem to be able to snipe with almost any weapon. So, if that's going to lead to nothing but frustration, this is definitely not the game for you. A remedy would be to offer an offline version of the multiplayer modes, but that subject has already been brought up. Whether we get it or not remains to be seen.
  • It also has to do with the fact that there are quite a few players who are already level 50 and have unlocked and purchased all of the higher end cards for their hands. Knowing EA, I'm willing to bet there there is absolutely nothing that takes player level into account when matching people. Judging by the lag and constant disconnects that I've been experiencing, and the fact that there is no server browser, I must also assume that when you join a game, that you could end up playing opponents anywhere, including on the other side of the planet. All in all, the game may be visually appealing, but it's essentially a ***** dressed in a pretty package.
  • I only play shooters. I actually think the game is good. The network in my region is all fibre now and I don't use wireless. The games net code is good. So I get no disconnects and little to no lag. I know I'm lucky :)

    My point is when you strafe (move sideways) in other shooters your bullet spread increases meaning that bullets don't always land exactly where the target is pointed.

    So there is a slight accuracy penalty if you move and fire at the same time. So there is a balance between choosing to stand still and aim and dodging and firing.

    My friend kept getting owned because he was always stopping and aiming as opposed to strafing like mad. I thought it might be happening to other new players too.

    @Gamer_Dad_71 38 kills is pretty damn badass!

    Noobs get owned because they are noobs. The only way to not be a noob is to put the time in to learn the games mechanics, how to use cover to your advantage while only giving the person you are shooting at line of sight on you, getting more accurate, reading map flow and spawn mechanics, moving your character in the best way possible to minimise the amount of shots taken, proficiency in using your gadgets and vehicles and knowing when to retreat and when to push.

    There is no way around this, you have to learn this to get better, and the big problem thats going on, is devs are trying to make a game "noob friendly". By that i mean they add in stuff like lockon launchers, unlimited grenades, pickups that are auto turrets and auto aim droids and so on... and what this does is actually NOT help noobs at all to get better at these things quickly and painlessly, and then on top of that it frustrates the better players to see these skills they have learned count for less with each game released. What they 110% need is to stop trying to derp the game down, but give VERY good tutorials on how to improve on the areas i mentioned quickly and while having fun, not being lulled into a false sense of achievement. I want to see more and more noobs joining games and join in the fun and i always have the time to help out with some tips but at the end of the day i dont want to see a great game like Chess become checkers.

    So i would say if you are a noob, put down that homing launcher and pick up the jetpack and flashbang card, and try always get to the area of action quickly, establish some cover even quicker at a hot spot, know what cover your going to move to, use cover so as you only ever allow the person you are shooting at a line of sight on you (and try to minimise the amount you are seen even further by only popping you head out over the lip of cover to shoot when it suits you) and your aim will get better over time. Save that jetpack use for when youve gotten yourself into a tight spot and need to jet out of there, or use it to boldly jet over a crowd of enemies that arent looking, land behind them and learn to prioritise your targets by shooting whoever has noticed you first and work your way from back to front. ALWAYS shoot at whoever has noticed you, even if that means leaving the guy you were currently shooting at. If you can manage, also increase your sensitivity another 50%, when you get used to this sensitivity itll give you an advantage on quickly turning to face an opponent and will probably be what will give you the win in those cases. Pretty much everything comes down to always trying to give yourself the slight advantage, and not being afraid to back off if you have lost that advantage and change the game a little, by throwing that flashbang, waiting for health or powerups to come back or whatever. But that said if you want to learn quickly you will have to be brave and try new tactics that you can come up with instead of hanging back. I have a 2.1 K/D and this is just some of the stuff that has helped me.

    Honestly if all the new players had the attitude you have, the world would be a better place!
  • Sorry, but i don't want to read all of the competitive you suck and cry more responses, but I agree 100% with the OP.
    I have reached lvl 17 with my terrible AK ping only to get owned by most players.. Even with the perks and the scans, this game is crap unless new players are given more of an advantage. This game is so frustrating and each match is usually owned by one or two upper level player. If you get matched with a lvl 50 trooper,... leave.
  • I agree with the practice thread s. I played got owned like crazy but just stuck with it. You need to grind to get certain weapons and cards. You need to learn the maps but every game hour you will get better. Trust the force
  • This game is about practice practice and practice. You will get better, you just have to learn from your mistakes and improve on your weak areas.

    Stop worrying about your KDR and if you are at the top of the leader boards. Why? Because if that is all you are worried about you are going to get frustrated and never improve.

    I am very good at shooters and FPS', but when I started Battlefront I was absolute garbage. Spawn die respawn die. It wasn't until I looked at what I did in an objective way and learn to synergize my tactics and cards that I was topping the scoreboard. A lot of the time I don't even top it, simply because I play the objectives and that my friends is why most matches are lost.

    People are just playing TDM, not the objectives.

    If you need any help. IF you are on PC. I will play some games with you or your friend.

    Nobody was telling anyone that they suck. Maybe you should actually read and contribute instead of incessant whining.

    You will still get wrecked and all to my kdr if I played on ps4.

    BTW you aren't improving I'm sure you are just learning the tricks to the game, like nade spam and bunny hopping

    If you are the same HippoZoned from YouTube. You aren't that hot ***** like you think that you are.

    Also, you whine a lot.
  • Just gonna leave this right here.

    Could you miss anymore with that DL-44?

  • Hmmmm, didn't take long before we reached the "I'm awesome, you suck, my K/D blah" phase XD

    Strafing and no bullet spread, that was what I thought was an issue for some noobs.

    Although I don't think KD mean much since you can just farm kill with the ATAT or use Boba Fett. After 100 + match it a better indicator of your overall skill at surviving between each kill, but not an indicator of how much you help your team has a player.

    Someone who play the objective more and push the front-line has a footsoldier. Has a higher risk of dying than someone who stay behind and snipe people. Or someone that just hog vehicle. Like spawn camping the ATAT or the ATST

    So K/D does not mean THAT much. It's not an arena shooter. If you're too much obsessed with your KDR you stop having fun and only play for your stat . Which mean you take less chance and will die less. But you're not helping your team more. It just mean that you're only playing for yourself. It's not counterstrike. You have more than one life.

    Even if you have 70 kill. Your team can still lose. Maybe that because you put all that effort into getting kill and not getting a win ?

    Oh, you are absolutely correct. I'm not improving at all. Sorry for my post. Everyone just move along. Really dude. I couldn't care less about whether you think I'm improving or not. I'm having fun, my K/D ratio has improved. My win% has gone up almost 15% since I began. I'm scoring more and more objective and award points. Therefore I have objective evidence of me helping my team win and I am getting better. So how bout you move along. Quit trying to make yourself feel better by putting down others.

    Oh yea thanks for the tip about bunny hopping, maybe I'll start using that one and get even better.
  • I bunny hop and nade spam everyone. Objective game play is penalized. To be on top of leader boards you have to kill and kill a lot. This is why everyone is using glitches to their advantage even on consoles. And they will continue using glitches until it is patched. Once patched is when you will see the game die because of the obvious....stale.

    Bunny hop wont save you :P although some lucky @#$# did manage to jump over my bow caster shot once >_> but those crazy strafing guys get me sometimes too. It seems like when I strafe I still just got shot down XD. But throw a quick crouch in there from time to time, then back to strafing, it all helps.
    If you have a low rate of fire, high damage weapon you can do 'peekaboo' shots around the corner.

    Agreed, objective gameplay is penalized, you can go get killed over, and again rushing an objective which wont actually contribute that much to your score, or you can just find a nice spot to camp with bowaster, or barrage, or plulse rifle, rack up kills/score/credits. DICE really messed it up there. I captured 10 cargos once, I wasn't even top on the score board. It's ridiculous.

    Exactly. I run with Scan pulse, Impact grenades and Barrage....total spam and noobish. But it is how I had to adapt. I rather have a 1.0 KD and cap flags. In Battlefield I always loved reviving people as my side quest or dropping ammo for others. We have nothing in this game to say be a teammate except a partner to spawn which is always used in Dice developments.

    It sounds a lot of us like Objective style play and we are having to revert to a COD style which I know is exactly what they wanted and got.

    On Supremacy modes especially on Endor you can destroy teams with Scan pulse using Dl-44 or Se-14c. Especially snipers. On the snow level and sorossub it has become a sniper campfest. Sorossub is a very tricky map as in supremacy eventually you have to come out of the tunnels and cross the middle. This is where a decent team can destroy you. What I do on supremacy if my team is weak is hold the first capture at the beginning of the round. I can usually defend it against 4 guys at once by myself using nade spam with scan pulse. I will let the others push for the other capture points because majority of the time the first capture point is the only one fought over the entire match.
  • K\D is irrelevant mine is high as well but that's because I'm good in fighter planes. Not so great in the ground game.

    This game needs somesort of skill stat based on win/loss ratio.
  • It's not even about winning or losing. You can try hard to capture objectives, and not get rewarded.
  • It's not even about winning or losing. You can try hard to capture objectives, and not get rewarded.

    Yep and I think that is what everyone is learning. And what is even more comical is someone can get a hero pickup who is a decent player in the last 1 minute of the game and take the control point winning the match. Mind you they did not have the control point the whole game. I miss tickets...lol
  • Yea. Dice definitely needs to improve the score from objective based play. Keep it the same as is, but on say a static objective like drop zone. Every 10 secs near the objective award 150 points. Then give 250 per kill in the proximity of the objective. Increase the capture score on cargo run to like 500 per capture. 250 for the escorting.

    Right now it isn't how you can get points. Just do fighter squadron and shot slave or falcon and rack up a ton of points.
  • Playing objectives isnt as rewarding as playing for kills, thats whats wrong with this game atm.

    No, because now someone is camping getting kills, AND being rewarded simply for camping :P

    And that is maybe their plan from the beginning?
    I just find the COD style is boring and stale. Playing for objectives allows a group of people so many more options to enjoy a game. Of course critical thinking has left the building, and Battlefront is saying hello.
  • I really hope it wasn't their plan from the beginning, I think it was just poor execution.
  • The basic problem with the twitching back and forth (ie. the noob dance) and/or bunny-hopping is that they are exploits because the player is manipulating the hit boxes by quickly moving back and forth or up and down.

    I would not call juking and manuvering exploits at all. That there is tactics. Standing in play only happens in the wild west at noon by the clock tower cowboy.

    Its the same on any forum. If you moved while shooting me its not fair. You have to stand still so I can shoot you in the face. Stop shooting me in the back, its not fair I, I dont have time to react.....

    All you have to do, is camp until you see a hero spawn or vehicle spawn as Empire. Once you get shot out, just hang out and run around looking for another random drop and repeat. You don't need to attack or defend anything. Just goof off until you get lucky. Then watch your scores climb. The game isn't based on skill, it's based on pure luck and being on Empire for their vehicles. DON'T buy ANY gun upgrades until the DL-44 unlocks, then buy that and start farming. Buy the pulse star card early but don't buy any credits for it. Just grab charges as you run around looking for hero drops. Then buy the gold pulse star card and explosive shot. Forget everything else.
  • Noob question. I'm rank 7 yay! If 2 players are holding exactly the same gun type and they each hit each other one time in exactly the same body spot.... Does the higher ranked player cause more damage ? That's all I need to know.
  • This game needs a matchmaking system. For a multiplayer game like this to not have any matchmaking whatsoever is pathetic especially coming from DICE who have years of experience developing mp games like Battlefield.

    The skill system is also biased towards high level players so most new players will get killed more often than the higher ranked players no matter the skills of the players.
    The new players don't have a chance till they rank up and get the skill sets themselves.

    Overall it's just one giant clusterfk waiting to happen.
  • To answer the OP, it happens in all manner of shooters but in this one specifically the reason why is when you raise the skill floor artificially where strong players are given insta-gib explosives and borderline OP weapons and power-ups, there's no other possible outcome.

    DICE and Lucasarts are about providing an experience never seen before. The game isn't well-designed, mechanically, as an even remotely skill-based shooter as that was never its intent. It's the diametric opposite and the only reason this game sells at all is because it's wrapped in Star Wars IP. This game wouldn't have sold 10k copies otherwise and all parties involved know it.

    They've gone the way of Wargaming (due to World of Tanks and their massive revenue stream) by completely catering to ultra-casuals who don't care about the results and just want to pew pew as a Stormtrooper. It's a brilliant piece of business but it'll never be even remotely a good game.
  • L2P. Its why noobs get owned. running around not paying attention to the map in the bottom left. Standing still in the open not behind cover. Get you a FM 3-21-8 study it. It might help

    It has nothing to do with the lock on guns and missiles along with 3 grenade barrage skills and OP weapons you get at higher rank, right? Oh no it's all about uber skills from the select few that get lucky snagging a hero or OP vehicle card to kill everyone in sight for 60 seconds :P

    If you aren't willing to accept the problems of this game you are no better than EA/DICE selling the other half of the game with £40 season passes. I find it pathetic how some people can defend this game and blame other people rather than themselves for accepting this crap.
  • as a lvl 22 it is pretty frustrating playing vs people with all of the upgraded cards and DL-44. I'm almost there for the DL-44 so I can start 1 shotting people too so I have that going for me.

    This. I agree 100% but for what the op said, I've seen it many times what you describe, it's annoying as hell.
  • The game definitely needs match making. We were having team after team quit on us mid match last night. I imagine it was extremely annoying for the other teams, but it was also pretty boring playing against easy teams.
  • You obviously didn't get the Premium edition. I was a noob, but a noob with a DL44.

    your not familiar with the saying " Steel sharpens Steel"

    I am pure noob, I am 40 years old, Lifelong star wars fan, I got the trigger finger of an epileptic where I shoot my own teammates sometimes just cause i see something move near my Cargo box. I let my 14 year old daughter play my character and let her stink up the joint and we have a blast !!!!!

    I'm rank 50 and my K/D is a measly 0.70..for the longest time it was around 0.50...But it's getting better.

    I'm glad I had the opportunity to go against level 50's when I was in my 30s because it helped me see hat I needed to do to improve.

    I dont get mad at video games, I'm too old for that sheet.

    When I sit down for a evening of Battlefront, I grab a nice coffee, a Can of Copenhagen , some good tunes to get me in the mood

    NO. I'm a noob but there are multiple game code and technical factors.it s often down to who has the ' best' time for the contact on your button until the results data gets back to your device.
  • I'm not a regular fps player and 40+ years old.
    So yes i'm a Noob and got owned all the time . I ranked last in most matches since the beginning.
    When i play with my son he owns the map and rank in top 3 most times where i am at the end of the list.
    But things changed since a few days.
    I have positive killratio more often and find myself in the middle of the rank instead of the end.
    Guess i have slowly understand how this game works. What to check frequently even in the heat of the battle. Radar for example. I hit the right key most times now without stop watching the Monitor and staring at the keyboard to find the right key for the right finger.

    So yes there is hope.

    Lol K/D ratio again. If I kill 5 guys at a long range and maybe die only once and then hide for the rest of the game each match, my K/D ratio will be awsome (K/D 5/1=5.00 wow. But would I have fun and help my team with objectives, NO. In the other hand if you kill 50 and die 50 times your ratio is K/D 50/50=1.00 I rather be the 50/50 guy. It helps my team to survive longer and kill more enemies and spend more time getting objectives.

    Any K/D ratio above 2.00 and low overall score each game (not playing objectives) means you serve no purpose in a game you are just being selfish.

    For getting objectives people should get more points like 1000 and killing someone should stay at 100. For every objective you do get your 1000 points your trait card should lock on level I, II, III. If you already unlocked a given level. Also you schould get extra tokens on the ground for doing the objectives.

    Sniping at a distance is cheap. :D
  • Tell your friend it takes time to get good at competitive FPS games like Battlefront and Battlefield. I'm very good at BF4 but I found Battlefront very difficult to master. I'm now typically one of the top 3 players in every match I play but the learning curve was steep.
    Give it some time, and you'll get better. Once you do, Battlefront is fun as hell :D
