An apology to all Uncharted 3 players

I'm that guy. The one who keeps playing Uncharted 3 multiplayer despite being horrible at it. My kill/death ratio according to some quick math off the Naughty Dog stats site is .42 and I'm actually surprised it isn't lower. I've managed to get up to level 19 because I've put in 6 hours and have still had so much fun this entire time. I learn from mistakes but still end up making stupid decisions. Perhaps in a game where you always respawn I'm much more willing to sacrifice myself for... the greater good? I don't know, sometimes haha. 2 out of every 3 of my kills is via melee. Once I got Drake's AK thanks to Subway, and I see how much more accurate the blindfire is, I just run up to people while shooting and then punch them out. But I'd bet on at least half of those they knock me out at the same time. Oh how I love taking people down with me.

But I'm working on being as useful as possible though my aim isn't very good. I get a lot of assists, and try to help teammates out. Been playing a lot of Team Objective and have been the points leader for my team a few times by going for the actual objectives and not so much the kills.

I did very little competitive multiplayer on Uncharted 2 and a ton of co-op. Thought it'd be the same with U3 but since co-op isn't out yet I've really gotten into this. I intend to keep leveling up, and to try desperately to earn more treasures. I've gotten a handful so far, and won't be dropping that booster that aids in treasure acquisition anytime soon. If you see me in-game in red, yes I'm an easy kill. If you see me in green, just follow behind, use me as a shield, and pick up after my mess please.

You're welcome.

Your post reminds me of when I used to play Counter Strike. I loved playing but I wasn't that good.

I'm exactly the same. Usually it is OK but when two of us liabilities are on the same team is when it goes real bad.

I'm really awful at the Uncharted 3 multiplayer as well. Which is strange because I was pretty decent at it in Uncharted 2.

Oh well.

Uncharted is the only multiplayer I'm good at, which makes me sad.

@takeshikitano3:

It would be an honor to shoot you

You're helping the other team win, so it's not all bad. I'm sure they appreciate it. :P

My win/loss is 26 to 25 I think, so I'm not causing my team to lose too much. But definitely helping on the player to player level if others are seeking cash off me haha.

You are basically describing me in any (multiplayer) game. I got booted out of 2 dungeon defenders teams last night for god sake, and I was actually trying my best...

This makes me reminisce about an amazing match in Uncharted 2. My team was losing pretty badly, but I somehow started making kills left and right and my team got a boost out of it. It was like I was leading a rebellion. We were so close. I think you needed 50 or 51 kills to win in death match. We lost with 49. I felt bad at the moment, but looking back on it, it was fucking awesome.

Mine is probably just as bad :( I slowly get better as the more i play but it is very hard to get a K/D ratio that is in the positives.

I feel ya man. Worry about the fun your having, not whatever stats are being thrown at you. After all, it's a game.
