People running everywhere looking for a fight, no real way to know who or where anyones attacking, maybe the bases should have a distress becon [sp?] whereas somone makes their way deep inside
the base and press' a button broadcastin to all of that governments troops that this base "Under Attack, in Need of Reinforcements!"

Maybe 5 min after pressing it will go out, just
to make it a little harder for that gov to

mobalize [sp?] [sp?!] Anyhow, this might cut down on the Chaos and make the gov more of an organized army

any thoughts on this, might work out, any flaws u see?

It's very easy to set up text macros in the game also.
You just type "/macro XXXXX", where XXXXX is anything you want to type in a line, and that makes a shortcut you can slap into your hotbar for instant access.

With these, you can customize commands far beyond the standard voice macro menu.

For instance: You want a special "Rally to the Hilltop" command for use in a specific battle. Just type "/macro /squad Rally to the hilltop south of Gunuku Dropship Center!" and you will have easily created a single-button keypress that lets you tell your squad to rally to the hilltop south of Gunuku very easily.

We give you lots of functionality like this. Of course, it's up to you to use it...but that shouldn't be a problem after you've had a few hours with the software.

Commanders also have a lot of specialty chat channels they can use to talk to each other and help organize the chaos on a macro level. Then each commander can easily request reinforcements in their local area also, via continent-specific chat channels.
