1. Treat people the way you want to be treated.
If you take advantage of someone you can’t expect them to be there for you when you’re down and out. This is completely true when it comes to laser tag. If you’re one of those fuckers who “accidentally” shoots his friend 5-7 times, then you shouldn’t complain when your friend does the same thing back to you. If you’re going to be someone’s friend, you have to commit to it. Don’t take advantage of them and then try to tell them bullshit excuse as to why your shitty behavior is justifiable. If you want an ally, be an ally. It’s as simple as that.
2. Mistakes are great- as long as you don’t repeat them.
We often learn the most about ourselves and the situations we’re in when we falter or mess up. It’s all about the trial and error. In laser tag, it’s okay if you mess up your first few times or hold your gun improperly. Just learn from those mistakes and apply your corrections. If you went to a certain spot in the arena and found yourself killed repeatedly make the mental note that you should probably find somewhere else to go in the future. Find what works for you and go from there.
3. Behavior is contextual.
It’s a well known fact that in order to play laser tag you have to be somewhat of a douchebag. Laser tag is all about the cheap shots, harassment and unbridled savagery. So while “daMan23” may be an asshole and follow you around the entire arena taunting you, it’s possible that outside of this context he’s actually a pretty great guy. Be patient with people or accept that it’s sometimes okay to be an asshole. If some little bitch troll keeps shooting you even when you’re already dead, don’t be afraid to chase them or insult their outfit. God will forgive you.
4. Strategize, strategize, strategize.
We all have special talents and skills that in some way gives us an advantage over someone else. Take advantage of that! Some people who play lasertag are super fast and elusive which helps them kill without being killed. If you’re not fast or coordinated find a way to level the playing field. Find a high point and act as a sniper. Think about what your best skills are and apply them to the challenge. We can’t all be great at everything but that doesn’t mean you can bitch all day about how other people have things you don’t.
5. You don’t have to be the winner to have fun.
There are times in life when being the winner is important but laser tag isn’t one of them. You can have fun without being the best. I mean I may have not won the game but who cares? The guy who won comes here every day, so of course he won. He has no life! As long as you’re not dead last in life, don’t beat yourself up. And it’s okay to come in dead last your first time- but if you’ve been playing for years and are still coming in last then you should probably find a different activity.
