In HB, when my team mate has the ball, I stick right by them with my DPS. I'm obviously good enough to take down 8 enemy players before all 8 of them beating on the ball carrier can take him out. Whatever I do, I definitely do *not* run ahead for a pass. That would just leave my guy vulnerable to being killed.
[Edited this to use the "my", "I", phrasing instead of "your", "you" - just because I noticed some people write one way, some the other... I wonder if it's a subtle hint at which side of the "bad pug" group we think we are on?
