Teamwork Makes The Dreamwork!

The importance of teamwork when gaming

Respecting other players and working well with your teammates is essential if you are going to develop and improve as a player. Not only does it help to improve your gameplay but it will also make you stand out as a valuable player whom others will respect and enjoy playing with. Working well with your teammates can also have a huge impact on how your team performs.

Building relationships with the people you play with is also important, thanking them for a GG, sharing a joke or just chatting about the game can help you to build a network of friendly players that will make your gaming experience more enjoyable.

Tips for developing team skills

  • Keep it friendly – Creating a welcoming and friendly environment will allow teammates to feel welcome and valued. This is the best way to form meaningful relationships and keep your gaming experience productive and fun.
  • Respect – Respecting other player opinions and valuing teammates’ contributions to strategies and tactics helps to create team cohesion. When players feel in sync with each other and play well as a team, win or lose, it can still be an enjoyable and positive experience for everyone.
  • Keeping cool – Not always easy under pressure or when you are having a tough time, but try to be aware of when you, or others are triggered by frustrating situations and start to lose focus. A team that is communicating well and working together should be able to support each other and get back into the game.
  • Encourage feedback – If a player is having difficulties, let them tell you what the problem is and see if the team can support, assist or advise them – good communication in difficult or challenging situations can help to pull a team together and turn a situation around. And if a player performs well, let them know – calling out good gameplay inspires teammates, which is great for team moral.
  • Building Relationships – Use the tools or community features at your disposal to try and build a network of other players of a similar skill level. If you build a relationship with a group of players that you trust, you are much more likely to get good feedback on how you’re playing and receive support when learning new skills – where you can also enjoy the whole game experience even more.
