Having a dedicated commander in the command vehicle helps a lot. He doesn't have to be voted CMDR, but someone to process information and give orders/hints to other players is very useful. The ability to drop and redeploy turrets is also very useful. Not to mention the fire missions, and appropriate warnings to other players.

Practically no direct action since you hide most of the time under jammer cover, but still fun. Maybe some people can command and fight at the same time, but I can't.

Last night I played with 11 other players, it's much more dynamic and dangerous compared to fighting bots.

that has been real fun but i think that attacking side was a little bit disadvataged, it took as a while to get out of the boonies

I think it would be really cool to have a 'drop once' request for bots which would be exactly like a drop request except the bot is set to 'autonomous' after the drop. This would be especially handy when wanting to do a drop that is a bit risky or when trying to juggle a whole lot of things at once.

It would also be good so have something similar which isn't directed at a particular bot and is a once only drop request for the next available autonomous bot.

A small thing that would help would be an information which vehicles the other teammembers have. So you can choose something useful and not end up with three cutters or none at all.

It would be nice if the list of team members in the top left of the tactical display also said what vehicle they had - not having to click on each unit would speed up getting this sort of information and allow more time for driving, giving orders, observing, etc.

If you go to he Tactical Display (press space), the other team members (and visible/known enemies), press 'n' and the labels will toggle between name, type of vehicle and mission.

That would be very useful, indeed. We're working on it, but won't be adding it until after v1 ships.
