  • [VIDEO] Basic Squad Training Video: BF3 Series

    I am working on a series of training videos, starting with the basics familiar to TG members. This training series will feature the BF3 environment.

    Over the past 6 years my TG videos have garnered over 20,000 views (modest by some standards, certainly). Hopefully this effort will help promote the Tactical Gamer community.

          I really like it
          To me, developing the tight squad comms is the most exciting part of BF3 in the first few months

            The final version of the first BF3 TG Training video from the 1stMIP.

            This is my longest and most extensive training video production thus far (4.5 minutes).

            Best viewed at 1080p while drinking scotch.

              I deleted an earlier version of the above video due to an error in the narrative.

              The correct version is here.

                These are really good, E-male. I look forward to playing in your squad and with everyone else here at TG!

                    In the first video you took your squad away from the mcomm that was planted....essentially taking away force and firepower(especially since you were in a great location to suppress any new enemies) that could have been used to help your team disarm and save the objective......not sure I agree with that. Aren't we always told to play the objective?.....in this case backing up your team and disarming?

                      The objective on rush is to keep the enemy from arming and destroying all sets of MCOMs. Situations are many times more complicated than, "Complete the immediate objective" as the actions you take in the near future have consequences shortly after that. If falling back to the next set seems like it will allow you to setup a better defensive position than trying to disarm the current one it may be a good idea. Take for example trying to disarm one of the 2 MCOMs in a stage. As is obvious to anyone who has played a good bit sending every person to disarm one leaves the unarmed MCOM open and nearly always leads to it being armed and allows the enemy to setup defensive positions around it. Rather it is many times better to allow the enemy to take the B objective that they are already entrenched on and fortify your own position on A so it is not also lost. Similar tactics when falling back to the next set of MCOMs when you feel the current set is hopeless.

                      As far as the particular situation in the video it is hard to tell exactly, but it might have been better to try for the disarm. No need to suggest they weren't trying to play the objective though.

                            A fair question.

                            Your stated assumptions are misguided I think, as I had correctly judged that the MCOMS were going to fall long before we could mount an adequate response.

                            Within 5 to 7 seconds both MCOMS were lost. Retreat was a reasonable option at that time which allowed us to be in a better position to counter the oncoming enemy rush. We had no reasonable hope of stopping the enemy at the moment, which is why I ordered the retreat. Other, better, fighters might have fared differently, but I base my orders on my squad's capabilities at the time.

                            Keep in mind that many players will simply throw themselves at an overwhelming enemy and die, and fail to stop the inevitable. This leads to many respawning far to the back and an utter collapse of the frontline. Our strategy ensured that we became the new front line of defense in a strategic manner.

                            Also note that what you saw was John and I drilling and testing a developing strategy that assumes a full squad. I might have sent two men forward to defend in what might otherwise be a futile effort, while Alpha fireteam fell back to reestablish a firebase.

                            All this is part of the 1stMIP developing a playbook of strategies for each map. We will release the Paris Map playbook later this Fall for feedback and improvement.

                            I deeply appreciate your feedback -- it is why I post these videos -- feedback, commentary, improvement.

                            More later!
