Hey all, I need a good PVP tip on Fleet Communication for my weekly newsletter. If it's fairly decent, let me feature it!

Upcoming Newsletter:
http://milpacs.net/newsletters/090411/

Also
Looking for a corporation to feature in newsletter. Need a 180x100 Logo and web address sent to support[at]milpacs.net. See example in newsletter above.

Thanks for the help!

When naming stargates for your fleet to warp to, simply say the first 3-4 letters in the system name. It's much faster and easier than trying to pronounce Nourvukaiken for the first time, and generally leads to faster, more coordinated fleet movements.

Give whomever's the FC admin rights to your speach server (even if only temporarily).

This gives them the ability to permanently silence hotmic addicts and they can even go so fa as to mute everydamned one when they NEED what they have to say be heard.

'Course flyin with people you actually know and/or mature people usually curbs a lot o tha from the get-go, but it's still handy none-the-less.

Repeat every command 3 or 4 times. You never know what kind of background distractions pilot's might have and there isn't any kind of eye-contact over internet spaceships to tell you when people are paying attention.

Take the time to go over the fleets composition, viable targets, and everyone's job before the fleet gets underway.

Also, if FCing people you are not familiar flying with go over the basic fleet commands (warp to, focus fire, primary, hold on gate, RUN!).

-assign secondary FC in case you die
-keep everyone alive
-sound decisive, even when not totally sure :)

NEVER EVER do that
I quit fleets like that, either
-FC knows fleet is composed of ******s and repeats 4 times
-or FC is a ******

Highly annoying.

I've never flown under a good FC who didn't repeat himself to the point of nausea. And going by fraps, voice comms, etc. of other reputedly excellent FCs, I see them doing the same.

I've been in fights where we shouldn't have lost any ships, but did due to somebody not having broadcast to all selected. I typically ask that everybody checks that their broadcast selection is set correctly for that fight when having logi support the entire fleet and not just squads.
