yeah well the public part went out the door when I asked a specific person a question in this form. Yes all can answer,but why would you if you are not him? why do you feel the need to chase this until ...what?
I am asking what in AK posting does Kozmo indeed agree with. Yes I am interested in HIS response..Yes now feel free to post for him.I know what you think of it and I know what I think of it now I would just like to ask him if you don't mind....of course
Ok... lets start over here shall we ? My name is Merrick .. And although i am a moderator here for this forums, i answer and post where i like as anyone else can and would do .... I simply stated ( as i read what was said ) Kozmo aggrees with AK'S WHOLE post ... He didn't say " i aggree with everything except blah blah blah " ....... Now ... if you are waiting for kozmo to answer that is fine. Don't continue to sit here and banter back and forth with me then... LET IT DROP. :D Pretty cut and dry. I don't do anything here as a moderator that i wouldn't do as a poster. So don't confuse the fact that just because i moderate doesn't mean i wouldn't post. Many people have made that assumption that because i am a moderator, that my personal posting habits should be different. I would have posted what i posted in any case. .... No you seem to be intelligent, and although you allow your posting to get " out of hand " a little. I think you have some valid arguements and would love to hear more. But..... Don't let it get out of hand. Bottom line, don't question nor tick off the mods .. That is in any forums. Don't like it don't post. now would kozmo please answer him so we can actually debate this lol....
.....>"I don't do anything here as a moderator that i wouldn't do as a poster." I object you honor misleading----->Bottom line, don't question nor tick off the mods ----< well you tell me what to say then and the rest of us for that matter. If you don't like it don't post either be just as one of us and take what you dish out... I don't like threats and out of hand is real easy
LMAO.........as i am in a different time zone than yours, I didn't read the post until now. However, it was worth the wait to read those threads. 50cal, I am not sure what it is you don't comprehend, but I'll go point by point.
apocalypse_kidAlso don't forget that sometimes the squad or player may not be able to respond. I have been given orders by the commander several times that require me to cross half the map, yet there is no transport available or any other means of getting there, by the time the squad actually arrives it's all long finished at that point and action has moved elsewhere.[/quote] So where's the mystery in this point? If I can't get there with no transport, should i walk/run to the flag the commander has given orders to get to or defend the area I am at?apocalypse_kidAnother thing is that sometimes the squad leader and squad members on the ground have a better ida of what is happening in their immediate vicinity. Our squad has sometimes been called away from a important flag that is currently being moved in on by enemy ground and air forces. The commander can't watch EVERY flag all the time, and while yes he has a good overview and should command in that manner, the individual squad leaders should also act semi-independantly, not forgetting to let the commander know of course, communication is important. The Commander is not some omnipotent being, he's just a human being and can make mistakes.[/quote] Again, seems like a no-brainer. If your being called to attack a new flag, but forces are coming into your area, should you leave and let them have it or call out that you've spotted enemy forces and stay to defend? I don't see the mystery here. [quote=apocalypse_kid]The tactics used in the game should be a combination of Commander and squad leaders, otherwise you get commander who blindly order troops around to places that make no sense to do things that aren't important, and that's when people start to ignore him.Once again, good advice. I generally follow the commanders orders, unless I am directed to go to a flag that is under attack by both teams and I am on the other side of the map, or to defend a flag that already has most of the team there and another flag close to the enemy is not being defended. [quote=apocalypse_kid]I will follow a Commander's lead, and if he's a good commander we will usually win, if it turns out that he's a smacktard then I will play with my squad independantly of his orders, even a team of good squads with no commander can put up a good tactical fight if the squad leaders watch what the other squads are doing and plan accordingly. AK :smokin:
I don't see what confuses you.... the last statement by AK is just too plain and simple to have to disect. Thanks Merrick, I am dumbfounded I had to turn my statement into an essay.
50Cal Man if all you want to do is see you name as the last guy who posted here then fine go ahead.
Easily done for a moderator if that is what he wanted, all he has to do is reply and close the thread.
I should point out that the world is full of people in positions of command who couldn't organise an argument in a discussion forum. Just because a person is in command of your team doesn't make him a good commander, it just makes him the lucky one to get the post, he might never have comanded before and not even know how to get the map up!
There's comes a point where you have to make a judgement call, just like happens in real life. When or if a command makes no sense the squad leader has to take charge and decide what to do, that's his job. Empires and countries have fallen by blindly following orders, and while this is not quite in the same league as that, the concept of taking personal responsibility for your actions still holds. Choosing to disobey orders in real life can get you court martialled and possibly shot, it can also save a lot of lives and even win wars, that's the entire point of my post. Never just blindly follow orders given byt he commander, use your own judgement based on your situation, I hope that's clear enough.
And on that note. Thank you both gentlemen.. I now get in the last words unless AK decides to trump me .. LOL CLOSED.
