<div class="IPBDescription">things not to do when ingame</div> im make this simple, for the most part ive decided to post something that hinder my ability to work efficiently as a marine. 1st, wp's are distracting especially when theres an alien and u can only see it for 1 sec interval (blue sentence that covers ur forward LOS, so u cant see something thats running towards you. 2nd, commanders need to know the actual terrain of a map to be proficient at being a good commander, like to know to place turrets along the walls instead of bunching them up in the middle, its frustrating when u have to jump over things to get ammo, jump back over, jump over something else to leave the area. make it simple commanders. put things along the walls, theres also the bonus of making it harder for aliens to hide behind things. and turrets have a larger LOS. also, learn how to move and strafe with ur teammates. im tired of people who stand right in front of you, or right next to the side of you, move over so they can retreat or dodge, i cant count how many times so moron has trapped me somewhere til i died cuz i couldnt move and he was too stupid to realize what was going on, And dont stand in front of someone while their shooting, duck that way u both can shoot, plus ull have some extra firepower that might be critical when being attacked , especially when u walk in front of them while their shooting, uve just wasted most of their ammo. i hope that people can learn to simply learn not to make these mistakes, ull find that knowing how to even move efficiently when in groups could be the difference of life and death, and is critical for teamwork. and one last thing! take advantage of what u have, sound is very important and it is a key thing to listen to when there are hostiles are around, and PAY attention to ur motion tracking, if theres a large circle and its stops right around the corner, it probably means its waiting to get u in the back!
