Most of the time I don't care, but if I'm close to my AGR-Chopper-VSAT combo one tag makes a huge difference, and once that lot comes out then there will be tags everywhere and red arrows to help my team out. It's better if I'm playing with mates as we can leave tags for each other if one of us is close to out scorestreaks and we won't rush for each others tags.

At the end of the day, it's winning that counts and that's what I care about so I won't get too pissed about it. Better they rush to get them than run straight past like MW3.

I run after EVERY tag, i have seen FAR FAR FAR too many times where i ran the other way thinking my teammate was going to get his tag to either A. Watch him run away because he's only kill whoring or B. get shot on the way to it because he tunneled.   I go after tags regardless now.  If you don't like it go play another game mode.

There's a guy like that in our clan, he thinks it's really helpful but he actually dies a LOT in the process of running out all the time and while he does get a lot of confirms, he also gifts the enemy a lot of tags. We win the game by a bigger margin playing my way and being a bit more tactical than we do when he's with us.

The way I look at it is this, take Raid as an example, if I come up the steps from the swimming pool to see what's going on and there is an enemy across the garden, I'll shoot him, however running across there is a 90% guaranteed suicide so I'll keep moving and call out the tag to my team, if it's still there when I get round there I'll confirm it. By blindly running after every tag, I could end up gifting the enemy team tags. I'm also not going to just not shoot someone because of where the tags may fall.

I understand where your coming from. I try not to get too upset. its a waste of time better spent shooting the enemy. besides, its a team game, as long as I am doing well and my team wins I dont care. EXP is meaningless to me. i should mention that im usualy the one with the most tag collects so maby thats why I dont mind so much

If you don't like teammates picking up your tags, then don't play Kill Confirmed.

If someone's strategy is to not kill enemies (or can't) and primarily picks up tags to get scorestreaks, they're gonna have a rough time.

If I rush to pick up a tag and get in the way of the guy whose kill it was, that's not intentional. The tag was probably out in the open and I was trying to collect the tag and get back in cover. It also depends if it's a close game or not. If it's close I'm getting every tag I see no matter what because we need them. If we're up by 30 tags, I'm more inclined to let them go if I'm not close to any streak.

It's not like your teammate can see you're close to a killstreak and intentionally takes the tag to stop you. But if it was that way, that would happen. A lot.

It's like yelling at your teammates for helping you cap a Dom flag if you got more points for capping it yourself. Try using your mic and asking you team not to take the tag because you need it. That probably won't work and your random teammate will troll you but we can always hope.

Good post OP.

I prefer my team grabs my tabs, especially when score streaks are used, nothing better then having your team scoop up all your tags to keep your score streak going.

If you play it as a "team" mentality and everyone is eager for getting the tags regardless of who gets the kill, everyone has an enjoyable experience and WINS.

Do you prefer a team that does not get the tags, walks past them because they are yours, you get shot and killed as you go to collect "YOUR" tags only so the enemy can scoop them up? I'd rather have my entire team fighting to grab every tag then "hope" buddy can get his own without getting killed.

I find that the only time I get a lot of tags is when I'm running with a shotgun or SMG and am really mobile. When I'm using LMG, AR, etc. I really don't expect to get a lot of my tags since most of my kills are further away. It's not that big of a deal to me though. Some teammates will pick up my tags, while I'll pick up theirs. If they want to kill me for that, then they will get booted.
