This is my first post here, so bear with me.
I've been running a dnd group with some friends over the past couple months. Doing some one off adventures to start but have lately been doing a full campaign.
One of my players has a tendency to meta game, but not in the traditional sense. Perhaps I'm worrying over nothing and his way of meta gaming is common, but he actively in character knows his own stats and levels.
It makes sense that if you have an 18 in strength your character is probably confident in their physical abilities, but it goes beyond that.
There's an issue that whenever I present a challenge or encounter and my players are making a plan this one player always decides no matter what to charge in and attack.
Initially there's no problem with this, but it can get problematic. Let's use an example that say there a a group of 5 or 6 orcs and you are level 10 or 11, you as a player know that the numbers on your sheet are high enough to mop the floor with them and that their CR isn't high so it'll be as easy as that. That's my problem, I think that way of thinking is technically meta gaming atleast in my eyes.
I even tried to subtly explain it to the player using the same example but he wasn't having any of it.
Out of all my players they are the biggest issue. Meta gaming and a god complex are not a good combo.
Anyway thanks for reading my novel of a question.
Any advice is appreciated. It's not like I want this player gone it's just I feel he is sometimes ruining the game for the others.
