or you can expect to be in the doghouse. Your may be overly sensitive about the amount of gaming time
your doing right now, try not to ruffle too many feathers. Your best game day this week will be Tuesday.
Your best weapon will be the Rocket Launcher, so if you play Rocket Arena then this would also be a very
good time to practice your rocket jumps. Speedruns are also in the cards for you right now, if you
enjoy them or have never tried them, then look into it and give it your best shot!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): You can make major decisions regarding your professional direction.
You should be able to tie up loose ends this week. You can make gains if you work in conjunction with
others. Take time to do something nice for yourself, perhaps spend some extra gaming time or buy a new
game you've had your eye on. You need to be inspired and have your spirits lifted. Your best game day
this week will be Thursday. You've got some bad game habits on the go right now, take a look at how
you're playing and think of ways to break those disastrous patterns! Your best weapon this week will be
the Lightning Gun in Q1/Q3, or Chaingun in Q2. Your best games will be played on maps with lots of
bright colours, dark and dingy will bring your game down to an all-time low this week.

likely. Don't let your partner get away with spending too much of your money. This isn't a good time for
travel for you. If you've been pondering some LAN action in far away places then you may want to give it
a miss for now. Your best game day this week will be Tuesday. Your best weapon this week will be the
Grenade Launcher, think of ways to incorporate it into your usual strategies and patterns. Your best games

the dangers like an old pro.

you to put good strategies into play.
Taurus (Apr. 20 - May 20): Don't point your finger unjustly at others. If you're on a server
and feel someone may be cheating, turn the other cheek, leave if you must, but do not accuse or you

problems if they've been troubling you. You will reap the benefits if you put money into upgrading your
computer. Your best game day this week will be Friday. Your best weapon this week will be the Railgun.

and turns and you'll find yourself low in the frag count!

with younger gamers, but if you are patient you will win their favor. Avoid extravagance or risky

to lose. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday. If you've been neglecting your gaming
pals or clan for a while then it's time to get back into the game! The holidays are over, so get
back into the swing of things, you'll be happy you did. Your game will be ON this week, you may
even find yourself accused of cheating by some wanker who just can't tell skill when it shoots him
in the head. You'll play your best games in a team environment. Don't be afraid to lay out some
advice that will improve the game of your teammates.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Don't make financial contributions in order to impress
others. You need to refrain from being the generous one in the group. You will have good ideas for

week will be Saturday. You're great with strategies this week, you can really see how a game will
unfold before it's finished. So put that skill to good use if you're in a clan and share the game
plan! Your best games will be played on large indoor arena type maps this week, and your best weapon
will be the Lightning Gun, so don't leave home without it! Play a little 1 on 1 Deathmatch to get
the adrenaline pumping and tune up your 1v1 skills this week.
