Someone please help me..

..try to make some semblance of reason out of this game?? I have been playing it off-and-on for over 3 years. I always end up giving up on it because no matter how hard I try, I just CANNOT see what the fuck makes people enjoy this game. Its the worst goddamn piece of shit I have ever tried to enjoy.

Can someone please tell me what the fuck the trick is to this game? I can't kill ANYONE, and I mean anyone..unless they are standing still for me. I just don't get it.. They come at u as elves with katanas, your a troll with a minigun, unloading on them and they stab you twice and you die. So then I'm a human with a gun running around, and dwarfs I'm sneaking up on and shooting, turn around, shoot a couple times and kill me. So I use a elf with a katana, walk up to a troll with a minigun, and before I even can stab twice, I'm dead.

Basically I have used every combination of character, weapons and powerful, nothing ever works better then anything else, everything gets me killed. So can anyone please tell me what's the trick to this game?? I can't for the life of me get into this sad sack of a multiplayer game.

Its a very tactical game dude. Its not about going positive on your KDR or anything like that (at least for me). But its more as supporting my team and backing them up with a tree or rez. I use elf with smg and rifle with gust and teleport. Just keep trying at it or if you just get frustrated as hell then just give up on it dude. But its a great game when you get to where you play with the build and character you like.

Thanks man. Maybe its a lot to do with every game I join my team is killing each other, so rather then waste my time with them, I go off and end up running into multiple enemies.
I am noticing that playing sneaky and/or tactical, is definitely the way to go with this game. Thanks for the tips man.

Lol, K/D only matters to me in GoW.
All other multiplayer games I play for achievements and for fun. But I'm having trouble getting either of those out of shadowrun. Lol

You just have to get into the right games there is alot of team killing but most times they will end up getting kicked you just got to ride it out. I play this game every day and it is hard and it does have a high learning curve.

It took me 8 weeks of playing to be able to do anything. When you die watch the better players on your team and try to do what they do especially if you are the same race.

Thanks for the tips, but literally, Fuck this game. I've realized this game is about 100% connection. And that is just something I have never had in this game. I've played over 250 games of this, and I'm still worst guy in the game every single time. So basically, thanks for the info, but there's no form of strategy in a game where people can kill you and there running away from you on your screen.

lag is an issue for sure. It depends on the time of day because at certain times the servers are mainly japanese and european players and if your are american it can be tough.

There isn't really a trick, just keep spamming teleport, eventually you'll end up behind someone and you'll get easy kills that way, this is how the majority of people play online, "tactics" are nonexistant when you can walk through walls.
