Cherno Posted May 26, 2016 Share Posted May 26, 2016 So, I regard myself as reasonably experienced with most maps that are played nowadays, and I am of the opinion that the foundation of a victory is a good defence. That means that I typically try to organize a structured base defense in the first few minutes of the game after the early rushes are dealt with and mines are being set up. I often take Moebius/Patch or Mendoza/SBH and guard one specific part or single building of the base, such as the GDI PP on Walls (where the doors face the map border and can't be seen from the center of the base), or the PP and back of the REF on XMountain. I run around my chosen patrol area, shooting widly around to catch SBHs and not allowing enemies to hide, rest and plan their attack. Then I communicate via chat which location I am guarding, and ask who will guard the other ones. In 90% of cases, no one will respond. It seems strange to me that in a game with a very small player base, which should consist almost exclusively of experienced players, that there is that little interest in a structured defence like this. I assume that most players are fine with just "hoping for the best" which of course means that holes in the defensive screen that ideally envelops the whole base with all blind spots will occur, which WILL be taken advantage of by sneaky Hotties, Gunners, SBHs or Stealth Tanks. All maps need a good defence, but on some it's especially important, even more so for GDI who has to deal with stealthed units: X-Mountain and Walls are two that spring to my mind immediately. Any opinions on this? Is this defence solution just not good (never heard any one complain in game, though), or are most people just too casual for "tactics" like this? I don't think it has to do with the less-glamorours job of staying in base the whole match because often there are more than enough people that camp but they do so in a headless manner.
