Default North, South, West, East

When your not near your squad and your trying to say where something is in regards to you, please stop using degrees, it's too specific and way too many use them when they aren't next to someone. Just use general North, South, West, East and if you can try and use landmarks. I've had this happen to me like everyday I play someone wants to say oh 240 from my posistion, like I can calculate 240 from his position, even if I knew his posistion.. riiiight. "East of me by the two story building" is soo much better. If this even helps one person stop using degrees when they aren't useful, this post was a success.

I usually have no troubles with degrees. Just depends on the situation you're in and how far apart your squad is. Best system is probably a combination of using degrees and using (the more simple) South/West/North/East indication.

If you meet someone doing it then look on your compass and line yourself with the degree he's giving you, then check where are you looking at (N, E, W or S), look on the map again, and finnaly find out what does he actualy mean. It is complicated and requires the knowledge of the current map/area, so saying North/West/South/East is MUCH better

0
90
180
270
360

Just remember those numbers, and extrapolate the difference to figure it out.

While we're being old men in rocking chairs complaining about stuff, if you call out "Enemy spotted 45 degrees" please say either zero forty five, or forty five north east , cause the listener is always guessing if VOIp/PRmumble cut out when you said "three forty five", "one forty five" etc.

The degrees are always useful, it's good to be specific as it helps eliminate errors. You just need to look at a protractor and get a feel for which set of degrees are where.

You need to view it from their POV. I often say "East, from my position", many times following with "that would be East minus ten from you guys.". I do the calculating for them so they have less trouble guessing.

yes good point, OP.

You know what else I would really like people to stop saying?

People seem to think "danger close" means enemies are close. Not so, it's a phrase to warn of friendly artillery or air ordnance landing close to you.

"oh shit contact right there danger close!"

fucking stop.

I hate people who say numbers. I always have to do a 360 before i find the right number. Stop using them. Its easier to remember 4 words, than 360 numbers. jeez.
