Gears of War Lessons Episode #2: Communication

Episode Two discusses the importance of communication during competition.  The gameplay selected predates the 2009 Major League Gaming opener in Meadowlands against Murder by Numbers.  I think communication has always been one of my team’s strongest factors and is one of the reasons we have been successful at adapting to a variety of games.  Skyllus brings up a number of points that contribute to becoming successful communicators with your teammates on Gears of War:

  • Creating callouts
  • Adjusting quickly to various scenarios
  • Emphasizing specific calls multiple times based on importance
  • Communicating the other teams’ strategies at the beginning of the round
  • Calling out what you are doing with teammates at all times
  • Communicating while on the ghost cam

Hopefully, we will be able to get an overhead of the map to showcase various parts of the map.   Feel free to leave any feedback on what you would like to see, as Skyllus mentioned, it is difficult to pull Gears of War footage, but we will see what we can do.
