yeah there is quiet a lack of team play on public servers most the time every1 just wants to get a plane or tank but sometimes great teamplay moments can happen, ie our battleship was attacking the e battleship there was about 5 of us on the ship at the time we killed there battleship however we where v damaged, some enemy planes ended up killing us so 5 of us where stranded out in the middle of the ocean, then the landing craft bobbed up 1 person grabbed it and drove around picking us all up! we then drove all the way to the mainland piled out the craft and attacked an airfield and took it we took the aaguns a tank and covered the flag it was great, unfortunatly that doesnt happen 2 often
i was playing wake or midway last night (cant remember lol the one with the flags out at sea) and i was in the destroyer near the airfeild and knew there was sum 1 in the far aa but couldnt see or hit it (saw kills from same person and checked map) so i typed in on team chat "one in far aa whatch out" what happens? they all ignore me and end up getting killed by this one guy who is able to get to the hanger and take off with about 4 of my team near him (i was busy sinking a landing craft) and it was perthetic if they had have listened and moved as a team upto the aa and took him out the island would have been clear and he couldnt have spent the rest of the round blowing us up with our own planes, :furious:
I think alot of what contributes to the every man for himself insted of teamwork is that everyone can respawn. I mean who would care to cover each other and stuff like that when your buddy will just respawn after he's killed. I play other games where you get one life and when you get killed your dead till the next round and everyone is covering each other and walking in little squads and conmunitcating better so that there team mates don't die so there team can win.
yeah but that leads to rounds of about 30 seconds at best, and evean with counter strike most public servers still dont have teamwork,
