I don't see where having less health helps with learning not to die. I only have so much health so if I get stealth attacked I don't die quickly.
Learning not to die comes from experience and getting a feel for the game more then anything else.
Take 1vs1, I avoid those at all costs.why? Odds, only 1 of 3 things can happen and two of them are bad which us:
1. I win
2. I lose
3. His buddies come along to gang up on me while I'm alone.
Nah, those aren't favorable odds, a smart man places bets on favorable odds. Sure ill risk every now and then, but i don't make it a regular thing.
There are plenty of kills and dticks to be had for those who are patient, death don't help my alliance the less I die the less points the enemy gets. Everyone has their own style, I have mine, but a lack of health didn't teach me this style.
