Finding help in-game!

POTENTIAL HELPERS!

In order to make it easy for a new player (or just a confused player) to get the help they might need in-game, I propose a simple tag you can add to the end of your name to indicate that you're willing to provide the aforementioned help.

In other words, if you want to help people, add *h to the end of your name (marking you as a helper).

Expect people to come to you with questions. Be willing to give advice, even hundreds of times over if need be. Show people what's what, help with binds and SG placement and whatever else.

PEOPLE WHO NEED HELP

Look for anyone with *h at the end of their name, and ask them for help! Easy peasy.

Guys, do not forget - in-game is not the only way to help people out. You can help out in FF's public IRC and Steam Groups chat room.

Hell, last night in Steam Groups chatroom we had a kid feeding rock music over the voice chat. It was a tiny party. d:

*h Means nothing to a person that has not read this thread.

*FF_help or FF_helper MIGHT give them a hint as to what the tag means.

I think helping people is a great idea.

I also think there's a lot of things that a player can't help with.

For example, I've noticed that MOST servers I've been in, have been a giant DM fest in the yard. Whether it's Crossover, Aardvark, Shutdown2, etc. Rarely has there been a true CTF environment where Red was actually defending and Blue was actually attacking. I don't want to sound like an elitist, but we need to teach the newcomers how to actually play TEAM Fortress. Not DM-in-the-yard-Fortress.

To be honest: you may not want to sound like an elitest, but you do... I have yet to come across a server where there wasn't defense and offense running, but if people want to DM in the yard then fine; the game is about having fun. If we start trying to tell other people how to play the game it is going to become TFC all over again. One of the reasons I stopped playing TFC regularly (other than lack of time) was the fact that everybody seemed to have something to say about what you play. Can't play defense spy, can't play offense HW, don't play sniper, don't OvO... where's the fun?

If you are in a server and you aren't enjoying yourself b/c you want to attack against a defense, then seek out another server. There are plenty where this is going on. At least, that's what I do anyway.
