Everyone already knows that though. So if you run into the city solo, take anything more than your 1 crest per stage as a bonus.
So you're in your POG. How do you make your group better? That's what I want to talk about for a little while.
One of the distinct advantages you have over a Pick-Up Group is you have the capacity to communicate much more easily, especially with a voice chat client like Ventrilo or Teamspeak. However, the voice chat can get cluttered extremely fast with everyone trying to talk over each other. Simple, efficient communication is one thing that sets a excellent POG above your average POG.
Here's a list of best practices I have in groups.
- One person calls the shots. Everyone else follows. That doesn't mean everyone else is quiet though. This person is referred to as the Caller.
- Convey your message in as few words as possible. 3 words is about all you want for any given message.
- Keep communication on a need-to-know basis unless it's virtually impossible for you to lose.
- Save feedback on performance until after a battle is over.
