Default Best time of day for US server teamwork?

Ive been getting really unluckly lately where the server im in is mainly a bunch of people running around on their own. My last few have been good but none as fun as when I first started back up a few weeks ago. Is there some sort of magic time or is it my squad choice?

People always complain about team work, I never have a huge problem any time I'm on. Smaller populated servers seem to be more fun sometimes.

The problem is people are not communicating in their squads. Talk. Or if your mike is not working, type.


But really, start squad leading.


Players are way more energized when you take charge and start showing them the team work rather than waiting for it.

The servers in Europe tend to have good teamwork from around 20.00 gmt/21.00 cet

In addition, i've had many people try to "Back seat" lead because that person considers his plan to be better or he considers himself more experiance or whatever his/her reason is. I think if you are that confident in your squad leading and can't stand to see someone else squad lead in a manner other than the way you'd do things then don't join someone else's squad...create your own and you'll never have a problem.

IMO it's down to two things, reputation and assertiveness. If your in a clan which has a good reputation and known, smurfs tend to respect and follow your orders etc if you sq lead. If your clanless, you have to be assertive as sl...simple, anything else and you will lose your control of your sqd, there is a good number of clanless player's that are fantastic sl's, so we do a full circle as those players fall into the reputation bracket. Either way, if they don't listen....kick function.

In playing more, ive realized that it comes down to squad choice. It has to also be a good mix of taking it seriously, but not getting mad. Ive left squads because, as someone who is normally a medic, it got annoying having the SL spazz out about getting him up right away. Then there are most squads that understand why the medic is there and respect that I am judging when to revive them based on the current state of combat. Ive been on a role with good squads lately.

I noticed around 10pm Eastern time to have the best teamwork on US servers.

You will have that one squad not teamworking a decent amount of times. Or at least a few players not teamworking.

Of course you can squad lead, to help make a big difference. I've squad led a few times where the entire team wasn't communicating or teamworking at ALL. I like squad leading because you actually dictate 7 players legally! > But, you should squad lead especially if zero teamwork is occuring.

But I've played around the 10pm+ time, **Depends on what day of the week. And I've noticed a lot of teamwork comparing to the time where US servers are usually filled.

On Monday-Thursday is where you get a lot of great teamwork IMO.
Friday-Sat is a time where a lot of people are playing and tend to just mess around it seems like, comparing to Mon-Thurs. (*But you still find a lot of teamworking squads)
Sunday is generally mixed.
*These are based on my experience


But do not be afraid to squad lead. Believe me, if you team has zero teamwork... you cannot be a bad squad leader. (Unless you just don't try at all)

Taking charge and squad leading means just that.

People generally want to have a leader when they play PR.

You're not always going to have the perfect squad, but in my experience if you are assertive in managing your squad, and communicate everything, most of the time they will listen, and begin to get energized.

But sometimes you just have to kick people that don't listen, all of them if you have too. There really should be a "perma-kick" after a certain number of times.

I'm always willing to concede the planning if someone in the squad knows the map better, but if I have a solid plan, and they keep saying we need to do this, and we need to do this, then he gets kicked. When I'm not SL, I make suggestions but I don't demand we go do something else.

If you can't get in a Squad that is populated and working together, make your own and Defend, or some other support role until the next map.
