here some new/old suggestion to keep this post alive.
1) muting voip players.
Not reccomended at all 'coz intel is gold even if lots of communications are heavy to handle in your brain, sometimes.
installation of 'Cyprus PushToHear' mod is mandatory to me. It's a client side mod which doesn't require additional mods

I mainly use this mod in order to have an always visibile compass and share faster intel with my mates but it implemets more features like a radar that shows ur sourronding group members and their orientation (within a 50 mt radius).
This mod requires 'CBA_A3' mod as well to work (Community Based Addons) https://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/?id=450814997
4) microphone/chat/intel/map markers
Use a microphone, chat or markers to let your team know things you think are important to share such as an MHQ, armored vehicle, helicopter, incoming reinforecements, lone wolf enemies. In this last case, when you spot an enemy alone try to understand what is he trying to do there: maybe he's ambushing our roads or trying to shot down our Darter drone. Surely he is there for some reasons. Kill him but don't forget to mark his position on map if you think he did something, write something down by a short marker remider for your team like 'ambush ?' or 'AA camper' etc.
5) markers on flags.
Is very important not to write in the proximity of the flag circle since the first thing players need to see when they open the map is the flag percentages clearly. Lots of comments around the flag may compromise the percentage readability !!!
Also: avoid to use YELLOW color when marking which is already used for vehicles we can spawn at. If you want to use a different color from black use the current enemy faction color, possibly.
6) giving intel
expecially when you need to comminicate something absolutely URGENT: say WHERE is the problem. We are not there with you and many times we waste up to 10 sec to locate your positon. I really hate when people with Darter say ' MHQ HERE, MHQ HERE'... here WHERE ??? The mhq was passing 300 mt behind me but I miss the opportunity to destroy it since I have to look the map and check who is talking, locate him and understand where the MHQ he could be.... ridicolous indeed.
Another tipical example: 'Enemy on my body'. Ok, same problem: I'm standing 3 flags away from you but you force me to open the map and see if the problem is around me or not.... just say 'enemy on my body at Lakka' If I'm not at Lakka i won't open the map and maybe survive the incoming enemy at my flag !!!
When attack planes /choppers as well as transport choppers are flying and you know someone of us is trying to shoot them down, never mind if you don't have AA, just help him to locate it by telling the location and the direction of the object: 'kajman is over our base going north'. Our AA man will know where to scan the sky.
Be short and precise as possible when giving intel, anyway.
7) working in group or alone
Working in group is powerful of course unless your mates get critical hit. Well, according a perfect teamplay, players shoud be able to create groups from action to action hundred times per hour along the match. EUTW pvp requires a bloody high flexibility from each player. Players must develope the capability to understand where is better to go and who is better to help every minute, regardless the group you are supposed to play with, when required. I'll repeat: working in group is more effective, normally but don't forget EUTW creates lots of urgent tasks very frequently thus don't miss to spawn at a 75% flag under attack even if your group leader wants you to do somethin with him regardless the flag to be defended !
Learn to understend what is bettter to do by youself first.
8) defending a flag against all odds
The flag is going down fast by 5 and you are 5 or less about to enter the circle. No way to spawn there again.
In this case, the best you can do is to SNAKE inside trying to SURVIVE as long as possible. The temptation to kill the nmy is strong but I suggest you not to engage. You don't know where all the enemys are and how many of them are there. They probably have an MHQ around so the best you can do is to contrast until reinforcemets come or the flag capture is locked.
1 second can make the difference.
