Right. Next time I do the StratGir outing, I want to set some basic rules, as to get certain things out of the way and cut down my administration time:
There will be 4 squads. Main squads will be Beta/Charlie, and Delta as general Aircraft squad. Which gives the added advantage that Beta and Charlie have two different colours.
Alpha, however, will be the overflow squad, and should never be completely full. They will also act as the squad I play in; however, I wont be squad lead.
The reason I am doing that is, near the end of my session on thursday, I found it a lot easier to handle it all when I was out on the field, playing in a squad. Some of you might say "well duh"; upto now, I didnt really consider that, as the maps changes so often, its often wiser to stare at it, to see whenever another territory switches, and rely on SLs to provide me with info, how the situation is looking. (as well as looking at the many radar signatures, etc; though it only gives me the ones where I last spawned/died, very annoying)
My Squad Leads should do the following:
- Put down beacons at good positions, close to their goal.
- Let me know if they encounter a situation where they will either a) take longer than expected or b) be driven out before they can reach their goal.
- Talk to their squad about our overlying goal. (which I will communicate clearly)
- When asked to "report", I mean they should give me a general status update, in the order of Beta - Charlie - Delta; Alpha doesnt need to report.
- If you have a good plan, let me know about it before going out and doing it, so I can give you support or cover from other squads.
Ill add to this post as I think of more stuff, but mumble has been organised already, thanks to cooper.
