Maybe its time for me to stay away from FPS games and move onto RTS?

I dunno, I spent the last...5 hours playing BF4 for the first time and I haven't experienced a single crash or bug. It actually surprised me how nice it was, because BF3 was the biggest #(*&$ing pain to get running right for me.

As a former CS player, whos really not into the new FPS games, (hey i had a coach at 1 time too) 1 reason due to frustration though that is mainly on the game mechanics, several reasons really. Anyway I jumped into RTS style of a game being Dota 2, I mean its not an RTS sure but it can give me that competitiveness that relates somewhat to CS and outplaying your opponents. Sure it will still frustrate and stress me out at times but its a 5v5 team game, and can be rewarding and fun by that alone.

Ive played SC2 a minor bit, but its really not alot of fun to me. Seeing the rush hit your base and to get destroyed in seconds. And learning all thats required to actually be OK at the game is a little rough let alone to get good at it. Where as in Dota 2 the skills needed are similar to SC2 but much less on the micro and more forgiving + only using 1 unit and i feel ive progressed very fast in the 6 months i've played it.

I take turns too. One day I play FPS like BF3, CS, and COD BO2. Other days I play Red Alert 3, Sins of A Solar Empire, Starcraft, and the like, then also Jagged Alliance 2 and XCom.

Lol "my coach".

top players often coach/mentor players/teams from lower skill levels in games with tournament/league formats

I've been playing FPS games for about 10-12 years now, but now I'm just getting more frustrated than usual in BF4. Back in my CS days, my coach would always tell me to relax and try to analyze my surroundings before going in. It worked but now I just get frustrated more often.

Maybe its time for me to get away from FPS games for awhile and move onto RTS games like SC2 or Civ V. Thoughts on this?

Sure.Change can be good. I have to warn you though,playing Starcraft competitively is a very stressful experience,probably even worse that FPS games.

Oh god, so very much this. I honestly recommend grabbing two friends who just want to have fun or try unconventional strategies in Starcraft.

If you've been in some kind of tourney, you'll have a coach.
