Thoughts on the game: 08th Oct 2005.

Taking the cue from Ickysaurus:

Very nice round of fragging this time around guys. Few points warranting thought on my part:

  1. We're playing better as a team. (At least in 2 man teams.) We're communicating and we're trusting our compatriots more. Also better co-ordination when working on CTF. Pshrike tagged me quite a few times while I was running across the map with the big@$$ flag on my head and that helped us score a few crucial points. When team members pick up the flag, usually it's good when there's a backup in case the flag bearer gets sniped.
  2. A&D. We're figuring out how to hold choke (flag) points as well as attacking flag points. Co-ordination was key to some flags and 2 man teams taking each flag was integral for the W. in Sicily. Also helped when we found alternate routes into the compounds instead of lemming-like assaults through the exact same choke points.
  3. Good that Berliner's found a good backup weapon that is a nice cross between the sniper rifle and an SMG. (No, not the FG42...) Now, if only it came in German, American and Russian equivalents. :)
  4. Ickysaurus is HOT with the flamethrower and Pshrike's WARMING up to it. (Groan) But the flamer's been weapon of choice for the two. I see a niche for both players. (Hehe...2 flamers on a clan team...Schweet...)
  5. We still need to work on tank takedowns. We're not going to have 3 man teams all the time (in fact, pretty rarely at that) and we'll need to figure out how to take down tanks in 2 man teams. Will be pretty tricky but I trust that we'll rise to the occasion.
Well, that's all for me tonight. Once again: Good game, guys.

BTW: I just realised that I can't make it for next Saturday. Can we shift the game back to Friday just for this week?

I'm ok.

The dynamic of a small game (two on two) is very different from a more crowded game.

I find that the small game is better for run-and-gunners, SMGs, and generalists: larger teams allows for specialised roles and weapons.

We are definitely doing A and D better: when we first started, it seemed that defenders would always win, but now it's even-stevens.

w - I think it's also because we've increased the time per flag to complete the mission; 12 minutes to capture five flags was a bit ridiculous. Though we should be working towards to that timing eventually.

Although Pack and I did the Sicily flags in 10 minutes the first time round (but I will say that luck had a role to play: we finished several flags by the skin of our teeth)
