    Ghille-rilla In Your Midst....

    Post by riafomh on Fri Mar 04, 2011 2:10 pm

    After playing for several hours with DFA members, with people leaving and new ones coming in, a sort of DFA perpetual-party going on, I finally needed a real break more than just running to refresh my drink and take a piss...

    So after coming back, I watched and listened with the headphones while doing some other stuff (like these forums) and just sort of listened to the chatter and watched what was going on in the battle.

    It was a unique experience.

    It works a little better when the team is on Defense, but either way, I found it to be quite informative.

    Besides being able to watch and move the view about somewhat from the spawn screen(s), I even eventually came in as a Recon (so I wouldn't get kicked) and just sort of sat nearby and spied on the whole business.

    I'm thinking this is a GREAT way to observe our tactics in action, both visually and verbally, see how different people lead and follow, watch the whole thing unfold and see if I can see why this method worked so well and why that method didn't work so well, etc., etc.

    I DID make a point of saying that I was there, but not really there, and to just ignore me on the battlefield.

    I dare say, it's a little weird, watching some guy run right past me to go arm the M-Comm, and I'm right there watching him; I could shoot him, but I'm JUST WATCHING... Let the guilt go, let the guilt go...

    So anyway, prepare yourself everyone - I may do this sometimes in the future. I think I can give better personal feedback for people, and I think it might help me to help us find our weak-spots for those rare moments when we are actually losing...

    BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU....

    MWU-HAHAHAHhahaha....

    Okay, so this was down as a 'Global Announcement', because I wanted to explain this to people before I start doing it so that they know why the hell I am there in-game but not participating or talking to anyone...

    So who changed it?

    (Sure, I think it should come off of 'Global Announcement', but first let it sit a bit so everyone sees it, no?)

    <After edit: I see it is on 'Announcement'... was it always like that, or was it 'Global Announcement' first? And what's the difference? Does 'Announcement' downgrade itself after a bit? How does it work?>

    Guilty as charged, I just thought it unnecessary to have every single forum category unread because of the same topic. If you prefer it as a glocal announcement (I think CSM discussion will suffice), then don't hesitate in changing back.

    I'll ask you first next time, sorry.

    Moliat, you are a very bad man.

    Yeah.... you ran into some problems doing shit like this with Crush, remember?

    I completely agree that it doesn't need to clutter all the threads FOREVER, but I do want it to just for a little bit, okay? Give everyone a chance to be 'in-the-loop' about my doing that; then we can take it down again.

    One week should suffice. Cool with everyone?

    <After-Edit: Okay, I see your point. Having every thread come up 'unread' because of it IS lame. (Sigh) Any ideas that satisfies all? Could post it separately everywhere, but then people might be replying all over the place, also... Hmmm... Guess I'll just move it into the Hanger, where everyone can see it.>

    That's probably best. Now it's available to everyone as you wished, but not spamming up every forum category.

    Cool, and again; next time I'll ask Smile

    Yeah, and I kept spamming my 'back' button on people going by to get someone to supply me with a roll of toilet paper, but people just don't know the meaning of teamwork...

    Ran out of wipes a couple of clicks back.

    Time to get nice and cozy with the leaves.

    Done. If I start doing it again I'll 're-announce' it, and we can turn it off again when I stop, etc.

    That's probably why you thought it was deleted. It was just bumped down to a normal topic.
