PostSubject: Where do you fall between aggression and caution   Fri May 02, 2008 11:09 am

This topic stems off of the Psychological Predisposition thread. Thanks to Admin and Ace for this idea. I hope it gives us a good look at the scope of players we have here and that we can generalize it to the larger airsoft population.

So where do you classify yourself between the extremes of an aggressive player and a more cautious player. Please realize this poll is to scale so the middle ground can actually be assumed to be a 50/50 split between the two variables and both ends are more or less purely aggressive or purely cautious. Realize also that yes situations will and should dictate your tactics, but here we want an average across all situations (as accurate as possible).

Please have fun with this and feel free to post any and all comments although a justification is not needed here.

Thanks,
-Roamer

If you have any questions about the scale please ask before voting as to not pollute the results.

Very nice poll - and thank you for including all possible levels. I chose 50/50 cautious, although in the past I've mainly been more "mostly cautious" than anything else. But in the past few months with my teammates mainly being a little less "cautious" I had to adapt to their playing style a little, and I don't see me going back to my old level (mostly cautious) anytime soon. But I like it - sometimes it's nice to be in the action a little more often Smile

Yeah, I think it is actually an awesome idea for a poll. I can't wait to see what kind of results we get. It was you and Ace who thought of it though, not me. Is the scale good. I originally had a couple of more options, but I scaled it done as to prevent confusion... I was confused just thinking about it.

Note: I didn't answer yet b/c I didn't want to effect the opinions of others. I like how you can't see the results before you answer the poll, but you could still read.

well sniperl96 that is what I would have to say. Although, when rating myself and how I actually play I am going to have to say I am a nearly 50/50 mostly aggressive type

I picked agressive because just about a month ago my sniper broke so i bought a shotgun just to try it out. Well any way i have become such and agressive player , but when i say agressive i mean as in moving into enemy lines before any one *******.

I chose 50/50, more cautious. I play more cautiously in Urban Assault than I do in woodland areas, though. Especially in the airsoft field I built, then I am alot more aggresive....but then again, thats in comparrison. I would say wherever I am, I am usually just a tad bit more cautious than I am aggressive.....but just a LITTLE, alomost 50/50.....hence my vote Laughing

Being a DM I would say mostly cautious because my job is to be stealthy and take out distances from long range but unlike a sniper I am not always trying to remain hidden. Speaking of, in your squad whould you rather have a bunch of aggresive guys or a bunch of cautious people?

Voted - mostly cautious

Because I pretty well always play the sniper/hunter role, though at times certain situations require agression. My team is a mix, the sniper element is the cautious lot, while the regulars are the hard agressive dudes. Smile [well, like to think they are ... we snipers know best Very Happy ]

Im 50/50 but idk. I love the rush I get when I just completely blitz people. Its so amazing. Then also, I like to be cautious to make sure Im not an idiot and just run out into open fire and get dominated.

I play with lots of caustion "snipers" that just sit and wait. I put 50/50 because I like to sit, observe,move and repeat, until I can take a shot.

I chose aggressive because Ive played about two years with AEG and I think I can count maybe a little over 10 times ive made over 3 people start going crazy and scream etc. after me charging....but now my charging days are over ive always liked being absoloutley stealthy so I chose sniper.

Depends. In my days of being a heavy gunner I would ditch my sqaud and stealthly creep up to an enemy sqaud from here I would jump out and just blast everyone away and absolutely destroy everything. Its from this adrenalien charges that I have enlisted the use of the class blitz gunner. They carry lighter equipment and a lighter heavy gunner weapon. They run around the field just poping out smashing enemys Then run. but as a sniper Im 50/50.

thats not a good idea, a support gunner is supposed to provide a onslaught trying to keep the targets down while the riflemen surgically fire on targets.
What I would do is send a blitz group, not a blitz gunner...get my pic?

Yes lone wolf but I mean one man is stealthier than a sqaud besides he just hides with a ghillie and pops out with amushes its highly effective. If you read my cerberus tactic I use a spec sqaud my blitz gunner is with them I use them as a a blitz sqaud also though.

not neccesarily true, you can train a squad to be stealthy. besides sending one person on a blitz is a 'stupid' idea, but hey they may work...some of the time

My vote waas most aggressive becuase you never know whats around the corner. When the circumstances are like that my adrenaline gets pumping and i start flying around and get more kills. But i am most aggressive anyway no matter what i am doing.
