Default How do you make being commander a bit less boring?

Whenever I become a commander when the round starts, I always tend to get bored easily staring at the commander screen, giving orders, accepting build orders. The only fun part of being commander is placing mortar strikes or placing artillery strikes. Most servers will ban me if I draw a doodle on the map with mines symbol because they would consider it spamming.

Anyone knows how to make being a commander a bit more fun? Or am I just missing something to do

Well, the comander role is not a very entusiastic task. The few times I played as commander, I used the xfire internet browser to access a few websites. :P

[R-DEV]Rhino:"I in fact got kicked from a server for tking."
Hitperson:"well done, treasure it forever."
[R-DEV]Adriaan:"Damned classy Roma, if I may say so."
[R-DEV]Chuc:"Pro man, pro."
(yes, it was about me)

alt + tab and play something else, if some one talk to you over voip you can still hear them what alt + tabbed so if some one wants something you can go back to bf2 and reply

[R-DEV]masaq - It's rather difficult to "apprehend" a Tu-95... you try persuading a 200-ton aircraft to land somewhere it doesn't want to, when it has enough fuel to get home and it knows you can't/won't shoot it down

Oh, that's priceless. In PR this is not a good idea, but once playing ACE (armed assault 1 mod) I lived something similar xD

Have the devs insert a Tetris tab and let fly.


But seriously...I know at times it can get a bit boring, especially if you have a team of no mics. Once some battles start heating up though, sometimes you want a break. This usually happens when you have all sorts of units up and running. Kashan is one that communication is key. Coordinates of tank/enemy armor. That's when you need to start confirming things with others and get them dispatched to take it out.

I wouldn't completely Alt+Tab out, could just get X-Fire and use the Web Browser overlay and watch some Youtube in your Ice Cream stand. Then you have an eye on map details and fun at the same time.

Look guys simple concept: If you are amusing yourself during a game then something has gone terribly wrong.

Then what is the point of a game if it isn't for amusement?

All I need is squads following orders, providing intel and feedback and a map that allows the CO to develop a strategy.

If you have US squads responding on Muttrah/Qwai/Fools Road then commanding is always good. If the game is not fun enough then you are not working hard enough to get the most out of the team.

A little bit of common sense is needed here, i think he means amusing yourself with something else.
