@  Stabwound : (22 July 2014 - 11:54 AM) Maniacal, are you about to play a game?
@  vVv SilverSpoon : (22 July 2014 - 11:51 AM) I always play Support in League now cuz I feel like I contribute more to the victory for the team then I do as ADC
@  Maniacal Met... : (22 July 2014 - 11:51 AM) would you like to play with us SugarBear?
@  vVv SugarBear : (22 July 2014 - 11:50 AM) @SilverSpoon yeah sometimes going 19-5 and still losing just doesn't seem right so I stopped playing him
@  vVv SilverSpoon : (22 July 2014 - 11:49 AM) I have to go to work soon T_T otherwise I'd be all over that
@  Maniacal Met... : (22 July 2014 - 11:49 AM) Hey SilverSpoon, Sundown and I are about to play a game, want in?
@  vVv SilverSpoon : (22 July 2014 - 11:48 AM) Lucian bores me in League, he just feels lacking. I'll play MF over him anytime
@  vVv SugarBear : (22 July 2014 - 11:47 AM) My go-to in DotA is Clinkz. Can't play DotA2 though it feels and looks so awkward. Makes me sad
@  vVv SugarBear : (22 July 2014 - 11:46 AM) Lucian is a lot of fun, I liked him more before the nerfs and BT changes though
@  vVv SilverSpoon : (22 July 2014 - 11:46 AM) I like Earthshaker too though. I just can't pick a role cuz I like multiple kinds of characters in Dota =/
@  vVv SugarBear : (22 July 2014 - 11:46 AM) Abbadon is pretty broken too

@  Maniacal Met... : (22 July 2014 - 11:43 AM) a BKB is great to avoid lockdown
@  vVv SilverSpoon : (22 July 2014 - 11:43 AM) I'll stick to my Abbadon, Nyx Assassin, Enchantress, Meepo, and Slark =P
@  Maniacal Met... : (22 July 2014 - 11:43 AM) He is a good mid or offlaner, buy lifesteal and agility items

COD #2: How to Work as a Team

For those of you interested in competitive Call of Duty and are on a team that is trying to get their team work down, here are some basic guidelines for what needs to be done in order to achieve success. This may sound reiterated if you've ever tried to compete on a 4 man roster:

Communication would probably be the biggest thing to focus on only because of the significant of it. It could be that factor that makes or breaks a team in a match depending on how well the 4 members of the team can use Call outs effectively, have good awareness and say where enemies are, etc.

Holding up your end of the team is a huge thing just basically for the concept of it. This is the most obvious one as it makes sense of what needs to be done. If you hold up your own, then it won't cause any flaws within your teams attitude for one another. Do your player roles, and listen to the captain of the team because it establishes a small chain of command and only on person calls the shots; this makes things organized and structured. What can be added on to your end, learn how to position yourself on maps as that will cause a lot of problems for your opponent and will start establishing map control for your team.

Another thing to try to learn is team chemistry, it may be the hardest thing to establish due to the differences between the players that may be evident early on in the teams life span. Once chemistry is there, it's very difficult to go away, and you'll see professional teams like EnVyUs and team Obey have remarkable chemistry. Even if every member of the team had below average individual skill levels, if the chemistry and communication is there, it still does the job and can bring teams to the top.

And lastly, establishing friendships outside of the game. Friendships always help with the way your team operates as it gives you time to understand your team mates better so you can know what they are thinking in game, as well as knowing what they are like at their bests and lowest times. Very important to know what to do when there is a problem in game and someone gets frustrated.

These things will all help any team trying to achieve good team work all around. I hope I have opened some eyes to how teamwork is done properly. I look forward to seeing some new teams break into pro status next year, good luck!

i feel like you need this in every game, great write up
I can definitely see this in my current Call of Duty team and this explains why we are advancing as a team. Great write-up Slauney!
Agreed once one of these starts to fall apart, the entire team suffers. Great write-up!!
Great article Slauney, I will keep this in mind when I finally get on a team :)
Great article, useful knowledge for any game. I think one of the essential things in CoD that you didn't mention is momentum.
Good point Rob, and I didnt consider it. These were just ones at the top of my head, i dont think teams need to focus on momentum before all of these points though, personally.
Very helpful thank you :)
I Agree
Great read up id deff wanna use this in my future practices i have with my team
Thanks for the Arcticle, great information
Something that you touched on that i feel alot of people in the competetive gaming community do not understand, is establishing friendships. I don't agree with treating teammates as a business decision unless you are truly the best of the best and cannot afford to have meaningful human interaction. Great article <3
