  • the most annoying thing

    Hi all,

    just thought i would get this out so that it hopfully occurs less.

    last night i was sitting in a landie on the 50cal supporting my squad. all of a suddern some idiot jumped in and started to drive off. I got out and fired a warning shot to let him know i was pissed. In response he proceeded to tk me.

    Similar occurances happen when i play co, people just take the co truck not even considering that i am trying to deploy assets.

    Hopfully players realise that the described behaviour just plain rude. I know most experienced TG players dont do this, hence why I love the TG server.

    Hopfully visitors to the server read this post so that maturity levels increase.

    Cheers

    If someone does this, report them! Otherwise it's just going to keep on happening...

    I didn't join a squad once and this guy named Nardini took me into the back room and beat me with a sock of oranges.

      I've seen people get kicked by admin for stealing vehicles. So definitely report it and don't think you're being petty.

      In your case, I would have stayed in the .50cal and told him to get out. Most people get the idea.

        This is also a good reason for everyone to be on TeamSpeak and in the correct team channel. That way a seemingly unattended vehicle can be requested and if no one objects, you can take it. If a squad has intentions for the vehicle, they can tell the individual no, don't take it. but yes anyone who just jumps in a vehicle and takes off should be reported and dealt with accordingly.

          TS is a vital asset, there are many times that If i am a CO i will ask what SL's are in the TS channel and then mute them in the CO console, so i can communicate to them on TS and vice versa and it limits the squad to squad chatter......I think theres another way to talk to individual squads without muting others but I haven't had the chance to try it out.

            If you highlight a squad in the console and use the 'B' key, you communicate only with that SL. When you use the 'V' key, you broadcast to all squads simultaneously, regardless of which squad is highlighted in the console.

              Yes that is correct...the V or Commander chat talks to all squads; the B or Squad VoIP talks to individual squads.

              You can of course also talk to your team in text, if they're paying attention.

                Yeah, but to be effective, make sure it looks like this:

                  This happens to me all the time! Some guy drove me off into a concentration of enemies. You guys can try to chat in text to them but that usually takes to long because when I Type on PR the typing lags.

                          This is my main way of communicating to squads when I command. I as a SL am not a huge fan when the commander broadcasts things to individual squads over the whole comms system. It blocks out the information your squadmembers are trying to relay to you...things you asked them to tell you,but you can't hear because of commander chatter. It is probally one of the least known commander abilities known to the community. Make a post with commander tips and sticky it maybe? I'll work on one if it will be stickied for me.

                            In fact this tip was in the "General Tips for 0.7" post:

                            21. Commanders can talk to individual squadleaders by entering the command screen, clicking on the squad, and holding 'B'. Using the 'V' key sends your voice to ALL squads.

                            You're welcome to add any more CO tips to the thread! After a wee while, I'll probably amalgamate the tips in the thread into categories and a tidier looking document.

                              I am the first to admit that I use the "V" key too much while speaking to one squad. Only because I am on the move and need to talk and drive. "B" doesn't work when not in the commander screen which is a major oversight on the part of DICE. Since as Commander I am often building things for the team because the SLs don't know how or won't, I am in the Commander screen only between builds and moves.

                              However I also use the "V" key when giving orders to a single squad sometimes because I want the team to know that Squad # is going to X point so that they know their flank is covered. I will then order individual squads to reinforce them if needed. I obviously use the "V" key when asking for shovels on assets to build them up.

                              On a bad note I guess I also use the "V" key to order a squad I know is not going to follow my orders to embarrass them to the team. If they are in position to follow my orders in the first place obviously. That way the team knows that Squad # was ordered to do something important and they "choose" not to and hence when that point is lost or that side is not covered the team knows who to blame.
