GrapeJuiceIIIWhen I’m playing matches that I really care about I type the following commands into console
unbind y (my chat key)
hud_say_text_time 0 (don’t see people potentially BM’ing - keeps the mental game smooth)
unbind tab (I have the match hud enabled at the top of the screen, so I don’t need to press it to see who’s alive. It also prevents me from seeing my K/D ratio, and where my teammates are on the scoreboard - keeps mental game smooth)
Speaking of K/Ds, one thing I see you do a lot youngman is look at your teams stats on the scoreboard by right clicking on their names or whatever. You need to turn this setting off IMMEDIATELY. IMMEDIATELY IMMEDIATELY IMMEDIATELY. Looking at your teammates damage and kills and deaths is a fast track way to push blame onto them for underperforming when there can be a multitude of TEAM factors that can cause them to underperform. If you’re looking at their stats and going “man my demo is feeding”, “man my combo scout can’t frag for shit”, it will cause you to lose motivation in the current match if your team is struggling, or even worse, make you lose confidence in your teammates for the weeks to come which is the WORST thing that can happen on a TEAM where you need to perform as a singular unit.
That’s all the advice I have youngman go chase those dubs
this is some rly good advice. I turned this setting off since it was added. Since you play soldier, you have to remember that your value will not always translate well into logs or stats. A soldier with 300+ dpm and a 2.0 KD in a scrim can still be a BAD soldier if he's just playing for his stats and baiting his team. The best play will not always look sexy but it will help your team get the win. TLDR; the only stat the matters is the win, start thinking about doing what you can to help your team win, not what you can do to make yourself look good.
