Damn, that's a piece of hard work if you ask me. Once it goes brilliant - lots of kills plus being close to the enemy flag makes you a "good" SL and player in one throw. And there are the "other times" when I just play lame and noobish, can't kill nothing at all, teammates don't spawn near you and wonder around because I'm not makeng a good performance (at least it's what I think) and leave in time. I just feel like crap in that kind of moments... I'm always keeping long story short so that would be it.

What are your actions when being SL and tactics. Please, do tell.

All about positioning, whenever i squad lead and am capping a flag i always try to get to the rear so my boys can attack the enemy from behind that are either defending or leaving the flag. Learn the spawn points too, thats great advice, theres nothing worse then sneaking all the way into a flag zone just to have someone spawn right next to you and plug you in the back, keep your distance, when i SL i rarely use the officer kit, i like to either stick with the recon kit cause of the binocs or the regular rifleman kit cause its got so much ammo (the officer kits are just too high profile, and I like to keep my distance so the rifle makes it much easier to attack at distance)

Positioning is key, always get to the rear, and keep your distance, i rarely move in on the flag zone unless i know its safe, also whenever Im in position I keep my eye on the kill display and LISTEN for enemy gunfire.

Don't let your squadmembers stay near you, as soon as they spawn have them either advance or flank, nothing worse then having a guy spawn on you with an mg, lay down, and just start firing at everything, gives your position away and you will be found, and shot, most likely from the side or your back.

Again about positioning, memorize the names of your squadmembers so you can say So-and-so 6 o clock! So and so check your 9! take advantage of the voice chat, use your binocs to spot everything.

Remember Squad members are expendable, the leaders are not.

I have been SL a lot lately i usualy make ''Teamwork'' Squads. Im so used to PRs Intense teamwork but whenever i play FH it feels like everyone is off in their own world. I tell people to go here and then they dont.... it pisses me off i guess i just need to start kicking people who do not follow orders, but getting a full squad in the first place is pretty hard. Especialy since you would think a Squad named teamwork that many would join it or want to join but that does not seem to be the case. The use of voip in servers seems to be non existent. I know that some servers have it disabled but servers like wolf have it but many do not use it to their advantage. I always feel really wierd when im the only one with a mic in the squad i tend not to use it.

What is the story on programs for a mic? Is TeamSpeak out/not supported?

If you're looking for teamwork, join a clan.

when i play squad leader i often try to get in big tanks and assault flags with other teammates in their tanks when they die they spawn in my tank and engage on foot.

as infatry i often use the SL-kit it has all you need smoke binocs and mp and a backup pistol. simple rules : - spot everything with you binocs - mark targets for artillery with binocs (specially if one of your suqd mates is in one) - provide smoke cover -stay hidden

especially spotting enemys with binocs so they appear on the minimap is most important, your squad cant figth what it cant seen giving them the intelligence advantage is often key to victory

and about ingame voice i would love to hear more people talking to each other, but some servers like HS-lan got voice disabled cause of the bandwith it uses and they are getting in trouble with their provider. i mostly play with the other betatesters or my clanmates together via teamspeak.

This is exactly what I think and use to do. (Teamspeak with my clanmates too) Sometimes squadleading is painfull cause you're very busy, under pressure and bullets, observing, spotting, commanding, and very often your weapons only serve for close self defense. Which is, by the way, realistic for an officer/NCO, and that's why I always grab the SL kit, not only binocs + smoke grenades (recon kit provide it too), but also to be sure avoiding the temptation to participate to rifle duel (this is the squad members task). But this is very grateful in many occasions =p . On Sfakia, I use to be very aggressive and mobile and to quickly lead my squad from flag to another flag, but usually, specially on the defending side, I spend my time as a SL spotting targets and threats, and giving orders and positions to my squad. My best souvenir is on Mersa Matruh : my squad was holding the west gate flag, I was permanently leading them on the threatened positions, being in a very outpost position, and observing and spotting with the binocs. After 40 minutes, I only fragged four times, and get killed three times, but didn't care about because the station flag was hold in the same way and the Germans have been fiercely kept at bay. Then I saw that the western attackers start to attack more wisely, gathering tanks, followed by mounted infantry, while the M3 Grant and our Crusader were busy at the station flag... From my advanced position I grabbed the mobile 6lber, and hide it very well in dry grass. The remaining twenty minutes were a duck hunt on panzers, although my girlfriend went in the PC room and chatted with me during this time (no more TS nor sound informations), I focused on the visual informations, and erase each panzer wave after the other, striking full-up Hanomags, guessing the opponents should be angry and annoyed, but it seems I was really well hidden. Once two enemy infantrymen passed really near me without seeing me, and quietly prone to shoot at defenders. So I just stabbed them :p . Finally at the really end of the map, they found me, I could destroyed a Pz II and a Pz III before the AT get fucked up, and while falling back I was surrounded by an infantry squad, but managed to killed three of 'em before finally getting screwed. This was the longest time I could stay alive on a round (about 25-30 minutes), not only well holding my flag with my squad (filled with 79th clanmates), but personnaly sending ad patres 25 enemies, including a dozen of tanks. Anyway, the main thing is to have hold the flag, I'm proud to achieve it even if it's not translated with my own personal score. I admit sometimes I also use to get killed 10 times whithin 5 minutes, and can't manage to hold a flag, nor being followed by the squad - this is Forgotten Hope : most of the time really nice, sometimes very boring and painfull, and sometimes an amazing alchemy with the good people on the right moment, lasting 20 minutes for a single sequence, or four hours... :beer:

i hate squad leading...

but playing aggressively(as SL) when there are teamwork is ok, only if there's a spawn near you though

( i like to join Hitman's squad, it seemed everytime i really contributes when i died...he knows about that! what a reliable spawnpoint :p...)

i only have success when i lead a squad in a tank in 2.0, where i am basically immune to noob tankers and any sorts of infantry( with the only exception of pre-laid mines), my squad mates just pop out pop out pop out...

Most of time I just join a squad but when I end up as SL, I use agressive blitzkrieg tactics. And as soon as the enemy is bleeding I command to defend closest flags. Works most of time.
