The good players usually hang about on the Official Servers, a lot of new people die quite fast there. Try a bouncy walled server if you're learning, its more forgiving to learn on and has easier people to beat.
If you're still having trouble there are guides
available. The choice of perks does make some difference but I'd say they are pretty well balanced.
