    Speak you're eyes

    Figured I'd bring this up.
    Communicating the positions of big baddies (Snipers, tanks, choppers, APC, etc.) in matches is a very major part of a successful squad from my experience in BFBC1, and various other games. It allows a team to assist each other in taking down a potential game changing target.
    I just don't hear a whole lot of that communication in our matches. Not that we don't do it though. You'll hear "apache is up" or "UAV" or "tank at B" and that stuff, but not too often. I'm a new member, so I'm not trying to gripe here, just to advise this. Communication of anything of importance is vital. What's important? If it has potential to kill or cause harm to you or one of your buddies, it's important. I've tried to make it habit to be descriptive of anything relevant, so it seemed good to bring up. -Respectfully, Kakkura.

    In my experience with DFA everyone has had pretty good situational awareness and communication.

    You have a very good point, and I agree with Abe in that DFA has generally been very good at this in the past. However lately we have taken in a lot of new members, and I have experienced in many recent games that we again need to work on our communication. Yesterday we were 4 DFA guys playing against 3 clans on Nelson Bay rush, and honestly they weren't too good, but they knew how to flank. We didn't prevent it well enough simply because we didn't communicate enough. If we saw an enemy, all of us turned at him which exposed the flank, and when someone were killed, they didn't say anything. In general we played well, but the things we need to improve on are the very same things we had improved far back: communication, co-ordinated manouvers and watching our flanks. Communication is, as you say Kakurra, absolutely key. I was thinking about making this topic myself, but you beat me to it Smile

    I echo what Moliat said and agree with Kakkura. (I too was thinking about firing up this thread here, but I'm glad to see that we're talking about it).

    It's ironic, since that's one of the best elements and what brought us (well, me anyway...) to joining a clan in the first place - team communication and team tactics that are uber-cool and really only work because you zip around the battlefield like the Harlem Globetrotters; everybody's in sync with everybody's moves; you co-ordinate your actions so that any one person's efforts are multiple times as effective, etc., etc.

    Then you have those infamous "Battlefield Moments" ...

    cheers

    But this we can only do with great communication - and for the most part I think we have it, or have had it in the past; but I'm sure we can all get there again. For a while there the chatter was becoming undisciplined and chaotic (a different problem to work on...) and now it seems to have died down to a quiet lull. With new members and new maps and so forth, I think there is just a certain amount of "Wading in the Muck" going on, and all we really need is to go out on the court and not just dribble the ball around and lazily shoot some baskets, but seriously and aggressively run some plays and work some maneuvers. The communication is such a huge part of that, and gets honed alongside everything else. The event this weekend should be a good opportunity to do just that.

    Now all that being said, the other important thing for us to do here (me included), is not get all anal about it...
