Make sure you're in a very patient mood if you connect. Lots of new people that haven't read up on the changes, lots of people making genuine mistakes, and a fair few people causing as much grief as possible.
Be extremely patient. When I first played it, I had a BLAST...BigGaayAl was my SL and we tore things up. constantly defending and finding the OpFor spawn points;) But as soon as the next map changed, things went downhill, pubbies raided it and just went kill hunting and trying to cap UCB's. That really pissed me off. Then I took a break and came back on an hour later with root, and I noticed we had no commander. So I take charge and try to lead them. With the exception of root's TG squad and some BF2C squad...no one was listening to ANYTHING. They stayed on the carrier almost the entire time. They all wanted to fly jets or something. Then when somebody beat them to a jet...they shot it down. It was that silly!
All I got to say is that this is a REALLY AWESOME mod, but I can only play it with TG guys:)
Now I am done ranting and raving;)

That was a really fun round. Gave a good idea on how to be effective in the mod; defend. We had two flags we had to defend and our squad held one for a whole game. We thus stopped the advancing us forces (with only one flag left at times). They would rush off to our last flag, only to see us take it back, forcing them to return and lose lots of time.
I think in this gamemode you may need of 3 squads, two defending one flag, one attacking another, waiting for an opportunity. Then when that second flag falls to you, then if you can you must move extremely quicky to try and take another flag. If you aren't quick there, you better stay because chances are they were on their way to push hard on the flag you are defending.
Another remark for SLing: don't forget that officer kit! You may be able to respawn close to battle if you haven't set the rally point, but what really need it for as well is taking the officer kit on respawn!
First job of the sl nearing an engagement should be hiding a good spawnpoint.
If you think the enemy is closing in on it, place a new one. Especially for the US this is important because you will have to spawn back at the base if yuo lose spawn.
