Welcome back to The Front Line, DarthHater’s column dedicated to helping you improve your PVP experience, both as a member of a team and as a leader of one. Last month, we discussed how you can improve your PVP communication. Today, we turn our attention to situational awareness.
Situational awareness is one of those subtle skills that separates a good player from a great one. Players who are situationally aware often seem to have superior reaction times and knowledge of events around them. In reality, they are just keeping track of the developing situation beyond what they are directly faced with — an ability that you, too, can acquire. Hit the jump for more on improving your situational awareness!
Welcome to The Front Line, a new column dedicated to helping you improve your PVP experience, both as a member of a team and as a leader of one. This week’s inaugural column will focus on how effective communication will improve your team’s chances of winning.
There is no in-game tutorial for communication, and it’s not something that everyone learned as they leveled their character to 50. Communication is a skill developed through practice, observation and emulation of other players and teams. Communication presents a unique challenge in every Warzone, because in order to react to an impending enemy attack your team first needs to be made aware of it. Regardless of whether it is typed in Ops chat or spoken via a third-party voice client, effective communication is an invaluable asset for anyone delving into PVP. Not only will it help your chances of winning and snag you MVP votes but long-term, you may eventually become recognized on your server as a valuable combat asset, a fact that will play to your advantage when Ranked Warzones finally hit servers.
Read on for analysis of common communication problems and some helpful tips on solving them. If any of the article’s PVP-specific terms are unclear, make sure to check out the glossary provided at the end of the article for clarification.
