Lets live alot longer guys
Ok. Probably alot already know since it is a known tactic. but lets explain anyway.
A comm should, to my opinion, use the FOOD principle in commanding. FOOD stands for FollowOrdersOrDie. Don't know who made it up but it works.
You see the main problem of the comm is his rines at start. They keep nagging for IPs, TFs, armories. This takes res, this takes time.
So lets start by not giving that. they get a IP, then the next order is simple. "Find RTs". No armories, they will hump it. No TF, they want turrets. We got a big build sphere around the cc. Just place the IP on the edge and make sure theres nothing between the chair and the IP. Now in the event that noone listens or is to far away you can hop out and actually live to do it.
Was the gain? If they do not listen they die. Simple. Do not give them anything till they start listening. Sure, it might get you voted out but point is they can't do better and know it. Explain why and they will listen.
So lets send them onroute. If a skulk munches your IP or CC, no prob. We have res, we have RTs (they are hunting, and since gorges need to evolve we outrun those 2) and if a skulk gets close to finishing the CC, relocate.
Now I did not explain why the FOOD worked. Only to send rines out asap huh?
Its a trust level you use to build trust with regulars, sometimes even n00bs. If you say "Find RTs" and 2 out of 5 respond then medpack them if they are hurt. The ones in base can die. Preferably without IP, makes them learn.
Just say it by mic, each comm should ahve one, that if they want ANYTHING right from the start, they need to listen how odd it sounds. I had probs before but I found ppl willing to wait out the strategies I thoughed up. Now when I say it they back me up, they listen, they live. others die and learn.
So lets try that ppl. Don't waste valueable res on medpacks and TF if the rines getting the stuff aint listening. Cause why do so? A not listening rine is useless, eats res only.
So waht if noone listens? Its simple. nothing gets done. REFUSE at any cost to do ANYTHING untll they listen. They either start to listen, or die. You might also get voted out but this would take several minutes in whihc case you lost the time advantage you could have had.
So lets all start pushing this.. FOOD principle, that rines will actually listen to the comm for onces. be strict. LET THEM DIE. Don't think maybe I should help, don't give in. Don't worry if it ruins like 5 games. Eventually they will learn. it is great if you are comm, use this, lose cause they did not listen, and the next comm also uses it. It brings the message over.
Sure a half listening squad might give victory, but a FOOD listening squad guarantees it.
