I'm a noob to AA, but I used to be a veteran in WWIIOL if anyone is familiar with that game. Just as with that game, I quickly realized that in order to help your chances of success in AA you need some type of voice software to effectively coordinate team actions. I have tried RW many times, always have problems though. I am wondering if any clans use TeamSpeak software, which was integrated with great effect into my previous WWIIOL squad with virtually no technical problems among squad members. Besides, voice software adds to the human aspect and comraderie of squadmates.
If any squads (clans, sorry) are looking for new members, and are willing to share their experience with a noob like me, I'd be interested in any info. If you regularly utilize voice software, especially Teamspeak, then that's a plus.
Look forward to finding a clan to learn from and contribute to. Thanks to any replies.
we use teamspeak 2, our clan is clan-merc.com come visit us. our ts server is ts.clan-merc.com
Hello StuG44, Our clan is proud to wear the tag 101st Airborne. We strive to keep things proper. We have been using TS 2 since it was introduced and I must say that it is very efficeint. We have very little problems with it. We have several different squads that play several different games. Ghost Recon, AAO, Operation Flashpoint, Viet Cong and Tour of Duty. I will post again soon, so we can get together online and see how you play.
hey StuG44, our clan uses a couple of inetesting communication tricks when we play. three of us use roger wilco on occassion. it's okay for us. believe it or not, a couple of clanmates actually use their nextel cell phones ! althogh i've heard the phones screw with wireless networks.
i use a few different ways myself. i run two p.c.'s while playing, my dedicated server also runs yahoo chat. i can just look at the other side of my desk and communicate with teammates that are hard to reach otherwise. the simplest trick is to pre-program text and default verbal messages through quick keys. a funny way is to yell at my roommate through the wall when he RARELY plays...
i can't agree enough with all of you that good communication is vitally important to good strategy.
