Gamer Mindset

The Gamer Mindset, this is something so simple yet so important and comes before anything and not only in SWTOR, it spans across alot of MMO games you play, it's the ability to be well mannered, kind, helpful and anything else that will help the community of the game.

Be mannered! Do not insult your fellow players! This is something that should never be done, it breaks up teams and can cause dis-trust with others, and if your own allies can't trust you then how do you expect other to do so? Raging is fine when it is within context and aimed at yourself, not your team mates because it usually means you did something wrong, understanding this can be a key skill to have when bringing your team together as a unit.

Play to win, even if you are losing! I can't explain how many times i have seen a raid group clutch a raid after wiping the entire evening and not only in SWTOR, I have seen this in other games such as Guild Wars 2, WOW, etc so you should never back down because you don't know if the tide will turn any moment and secure that victory for your team.

Play with your raid team, even if you decide to join a PUG, try to communicate with them through chat channels or any possible public comms channels such as Teamspeak and communicate with them, the team might lack Support or specific class, and if you know this then speak up and let them know but try not to seem too dominating as you might get some stick for it. Even if you manage to get new players in your team, try to direct them in the right direction, this can be done by giving them a certain role or task.

Be humble! Anyone, and I mean ANYONE, can teach you something. You need to be on the lookout for information; tricks you may have not thought of, tactics that could work in very specific situations. If you think of yourself as a high and mighty gaming king who does not have to care about other people, you will miss a lot of good stuff and make other people sad/angry. If you make it to 'pro-level', remember that you have not always been there and that helping other people is by far more useful and rewarding than being a jerk to everyone. You think you are talking to a '14 years old noob?' You may be talking to a future pro gamer that might make e-sports bigger than they are. Respect everyone!
Fear is not real, it is a product of the thoughts you create!
