I see them but have no idea what they mean... I usually just struggle to avoid hitting them.

I can type left or riht much easier than using special symbols but the arrows are best for players that do not understand English. It amazes me how many do not follow a call.

Then explain why consistently when << or >> is called, non english speakers go the opposite direction

 

is it because they think < means right is greater than left?


It would not be the first time you felt compelled to find fault with someone's gameplay because they speak another language than you. That horse and your rationale are dead, I see plenty of mouth breathing English speakers that don't understand the same thing. Move on from your disdain for those that speak another language than you. Put your energy into something positive. Language and culture are not scapegoats for playing a pixel game poorly or in an awesome manner.

It doesn't really matter.  If you type left or right or use arrows, it will help your chances but never expect the whole team to follow.  Or anyone on your team.  I'll throw up a left or a right, start heading that way immediately after the countdown, and see what happens.  If everybody goes the other way you just turn.

There is truth behind the saying "Young, Dumb and full of.. themselves"

 

I'd love to hear an explanation for the number of 40% fools who have been in my DMs after a battle and then when I start ripping their stats apart their only defense is "Im a vEtErAn aNd I kNoW rEaL wArFaRe ThIs Is JuSt A gAmE kId." There are guys who are full grown adults that can't muster up the ability to play better than a coin toss and you have the audacity to say it's just kids?

 

At least most of the time the kids don't respond or mouth off in chat under the impression that they've somehow earned the right to be a vocal idiot because of their accomplishments outside of the game.

 

This age shaming garbage is so old. The vast majority of top tier players are under the age of 30, plenty still in high school.

You're both wrong.  I get lots of dumb kids chatting to me and I get lots of dumb old people chatting to me.  I can see both sides because although I'm old, I'm so good looking I can identify with the younger crowd.  Blitz, IMO, has a larger percentage of old people to young people playing due to the fact that it at least started as a WWI and WWII specific game.  But I wouldn't say that older or younger people are better at this game.  I would just say that most people suck at this game.

I honestly get confused when people call up, I look at the map and up is their spawn but do I go left or right and when its my spawn I'm like do they want me to camp? (I don't, don't worry).
Remember what the general said. We're the cavalry. It would be bad form to arrive early; in the nick of time would do nicely.

People are stupid. I’ve been people. I should know.

Last time I checked, there are more teenage super unicums than boomer super unicum :)

But in-game, its important to assume everyone on your team is stupid, so <<< and >>> makes more sense than nothing.

First is no path through

2nd indicates that you need to go left

3rd is you can go either left or right

Agree. 

 

I always do

 

all together left <<<<<<<

or

all together right >>>>>

 

For those who can read they get that (for many who English is a 2nd language, reading it is easier than speaking it) and the arrows are to emphasize the point.

 

You have to disregard the ones who just go the opposite way as there are too many variables that could be impacting their decision such as: No chat, or they are seeing left/right as in relationship to the minimap vs. in relation to thier spawn as a basepoint etc. The ones you have to go ffs to are the schlubs who say affirmative and then go the wrong direction.
