Posts about First-person shooters
Would you play a first person shooter that rewarded you in crypto for winning but cost you crypto for losing?
So I came upon a game that hasn't launched yet called BR1 it's a first person shooter with apes, robots and humans as your characters. I haven't really looked to much into it and it doesn't look like it's going to launch until later this year, they do have a nice looking trailer on their site if you want to check it out.
when I looked at it last week it said it would cost $1.00 to spawn and you would earn $1.00 for every kill you got, it looks like they changed that - now to you lose 15% of your earnings every time you get killed but you earn 10% of your opponents wealth or the spawn fee (I can't find how much this is) when you kill them.
basically it cost you money to spawn and you earn money to kill people in the game.
Is this something that you would be interested in for a crypto play to earn game?
TLDR: would you play a first person shooter that cost you crypto for losing but rewarded you in crypto for winning?
This is not a shill post for BR1 game, I know nothing about it other than looking at their website for a couple of minutes, this is also not financial advice and I am not responsible if you lose money because you are really bad at FPS games and keep getting killed by a 12 year old while he calls you names and takes your loot.

[PS2][2000-2009] It was a First Person Shooter and in the first mission you would come from under the water and swim to a forest and ambushed as you progressed through.
The startup menu was green and you were also with a group. There was a mission where a bridge blew up too.
I understand that "frag" derives from fragmentation grenade and that it was coined in the Vietnam War to refer to soldiers killing their commanding officers, because it was often done with a frag grenade. How exactly, though, did this come to mean a kill in the course of a multiplayer FPS game? Are there any sources as to its first use in this context?
To the best of my knowledge, it originated with Doom, despite being a game that doesn't have any grenades. If I had to hazard a guess, it could derive from people killing their allies in the co-op campaign, possibly out of malice, like a disgruntled G.I. fragging an unpopular officer. I've never actually played Doom co-op, but it would appear that friendly fire is off by default, so this is a fairly common occurrence, enough to get you an achievement/trophy in the Xbox One/PS4 versions: https://www.trueachievements.com/a278796/slip-of-the-finger-achievement. If only they had named it something like "the wrong kind of frag" or something.
EDIT: Looks like this one's solved. It's from Doom, and John Romero is on the record saying that it was coined by artist Kevin Cloud and was indeed a reference to the Vietnam War term:
And then “frag” was from Kevin Cloud, from fragmentation grenades in Vietnam—frag the sarge because he’s taking you into the most dangerous part of the jungle.
Doom actually distinguishes between kills and frags. You kill monsters. You frag other players, in both deathmatch and co-op, and the PCs are all represented by space marines who are supposed to be on the same side. Such fratricidal killing resembled how U.S. soldiers would frag their officers in Vietnam, hence, it made sense to distinguish frags (killing your fellow soldiers) from kills (killing monsters from hell/NVA/VC).
