Problems with Communication

Im not sure if its just me but i'll be on the field behind my bunker, screaming my head off at my teammates and when we get back into the pits i'm asking if they've heard anything i said out there and none of them did.

I dont know what it is but its annoying the crap out of me!!!

I hate to say it but it sounds like your teammates have a case of tunnel vision.

I have a couple of teammates, myself included, that will often get into the mode of hunkering down and doing work and we hear nothing other than our gun and our own voice.

Also, I find a lot of people screaming their heads off at the bunker. Turn your head and yell, if your screaming straight into the bunker no one is going to hear anything you say.

Yeah, make sure you have some way of grabbing their attention. Make up "secret" codes among your team

I haven't played tourneys yet, but I am starting this yr. I noticed in practice I have to force myself to do it, or I zone out and focus only on my mirror, etc, and get tunnel vision.

The other issue, is when I get tunnel vision, I also tend not to move around the bunker as much, which is not good either.

The more you play the more aware you will become to your surroundings

I've found that when one of my teammates gets tunnel vision he'll focus on the guy he's gunfighting with and try to run him down without thinking about it. When I get tunnel vision I often find myself moving up bunker to bunker very quickly and switching sides.

There are times when tunnel vision is alright, like when it's a 1 on 2. I found myself being able to focus on the two that I had on either side of me and get one out (although we didn't know until he tried to run the flag in) but I got out since I didn't listen to my coach telling me to be quick about snapping and I snapped out and held a stream then took one to the hand.

There are times when tunnel vision is terrible, like when it's a 5 on 5 and you're a front player. The other front player always seems so close and it seems like it would be easy enough to shut the other corner off with the next dorito and get one bunker closer to him, but then when I'd take that first step out right as my teammate was shouting dorito corner I'd look up and take 3 or 4 to the face instead of diving into that next bunker.

Although, as it's been said, you will quickly break that habit of tunnel vision.

Also, Do not yell. Project your voice

This. There's a difference between the two. Yelling can sometimes garble your words together and makes it difficult for your teammates to get everything you are saying. Instead, pretend you are in a large spacious room presenting to an audience. You want the people all the way in the back to hear you. You wouldn't just yell, you would speak strongly and in a manner that makes your voice travel far.

This is what I do and I've had nothing but success.

You cant be back right and expect to talk to back left, more over its hard to talk straight through a bunker. However something you can work on in practice is straight talking to your team mates that are close. I mean full on conversation.

"Hey Kenny, how you doing? "

"Good just shooting their corner in, if he bumps to d1 you should bump aswell "

"Ok cool man, ill just be shooting snake 1, let me know when to go "


Stuff like that.
