    Default Teamwork IS Overpowered

    Teamwork makes any mech build better!

    I was cleaning out my screenshots and found this shot sitting there. We stuck together as a lance and it worked!!

    Six of us were dropping for Friday evening. Good fun for everyone, and Mabra once again broke 1000 damage in a game!

    Community Warfare is now available in BETA ( a.k.a. buggy)! http://www.synergy-community.com/sho...3284#post73284

    Synergy dropped under contract to House Kurita VS House Davion, the fight was difficult with a Davion early rush doing heavy damage, but we were able to form a line around the objective and successfully defended.

    Things worth remembering:
    1) Rushing the objective with light mechs can be devastating. After taking down the gate with their first wave the Davions used a light rush for their second wave. Although they took casualties they were able to reach the objective and dealt 2/3rds of the damage needed to destroy it ( the victory condition).
    2) Sometimes splitting the team works better then a single group. We split into a forward group at the gate and a rear guard at the objective. By splitting our forces for waves 3 and 4 we were able to damage the enemy on route and finish them off at the objective. This helped reduce further damage to the base we were defending.
    3) Continued communication is important. Having the 4 non-Synergy players log into ts3.synergy.community.com greatly helped coordination, but transmitting by in game text can also be effective - assuming teamates are willing to listen and help, which not all will do.
    4) Play to the objective for victory. Despite the 48-14 kill score the enemy almost won with their second attack wave. They ignored our mechs to damage their objective and came very close to winning quickly. We regrouped, came up with a new plan to defend and it worked.

    Cheers to Greezeweezel257, Lentjaq, prefail, Artillus, Nytshaed, Bolide, Mad Scottsman, Shaklin, Mabra, Ramen Ranger and GypsyXot for pulling out the win using good communication and teamwork!

    New Scoreboards from our Monthly Thursday Beatdown night 1/8/2015


    This match was rough from the start, the other seven members of our team did not support our movements but let us taking the brunt of the attack for the first part of the match. A victory in the end though!

    Shaklin is a excellent Spider pilot and can typically score much higher...this match he was busy chasing the other teams Spider pilot who got an early spot on Scottsman and took him down. Thanks to Shaklin chasing the enemy off we didn't loose any more mechs that way.

    Mabra and Draconic doing excellent sniper work. Neither team was big on leaving their bases for first half of the match, but these two still put out good damage for us!

    I wanted to recognize 3 Synergy Members who are great team players!

    1) Big thumbs up out to Shaklin for a tremedous score during a community warfare match! Great work Shaklin and way to show what [SYN] is made of!



    2) Kudos to Mad Scottsman for earning his 5 kills in a match!



    3) Great work to Mabra for once again breaking the 1000 damage in a match mark!




    Honorable mention goes to Nytshaed, who lined up a great shot on a Panther during a [SYN] group drop...only the mech was friendly and mine..... Remember, Advanced Zoom will not show you a friend-or-foe indicator! Always check your targets!

    Nice screen cap!
    I chased over the hill after a Hellbringer and had an iffy shot when I was surprised to see two mechs on my right and even said in teamspeak, "lining up on ...oo much better target on my right" and unloaded 4xUlrta Ac10's right into this nice, stopped panther...who promptly exploded.
    Oops.
    Way to laugh it off brother - sorry bout that.

    First ever [SYN] gameplay video taken May 15th, 2016. Victory during Assault mode on Polar Highlands with Mad Scotsman, Nytshaed, Mabra and Shaklin.
    - The action doesn't really start until 3 minutes in. When you're escorting a 100-tonner it takes a while to get to the battle, but got good looks at [SYN] members mechs!
    - Nyshaed got our team's first kill at 3:48
    - Mabra on screen kill at 4:53 and Nytshaed had an off-camera kill at the same time.
    - 3 kills for Shaklin's gauss rifles/ER large laser crab.
    I was having some serious gameplay and recording issues, guess I need to upgrade my computer before making more recordings.

    Also added a screenshot from a different match. Mabra, MadScotsman and I put up good numbers, but still resulted in a loss for our team.

    Bolide, Mabra, Mad Scotsman and I played a few Scouting matches last night.

    Results for the first match weren't so good. We split up, didn't communicate and we lost badly.

    We changed our mechs out and really worked on communication. Funny thing is we started winning. Teamwork is overpowered!

    Our MWO Synergy group had some very good matches on Sunday. Decent teamwork and communication really helped against CGBI which was a terrific match. Sadly, I did not take video of this one...would have loved to have it to watch.

    It has been a while since I've been able to participate and share scoreboards or vids. MadScotsman, Shaklin and I played several matches this Sunday, one in particular ended rather badly....



    Our team was short a LOT of tonnage, mostly due to multiple Commando mechs on our side which is very light at 25 tons each. We had 525 tons on our side, our opponents had 775 tons. Total mismatch on the matchmaker putting two teams against each other with such a tonnage difference. Not having the armor or firepower of the other team, we were pretty much pummeled. Teamwork probably could not have saved that match.

    The next match, the Commando pilots from 4TCR were on the other side. Our team had 715 tons to their 720 which is about even, and we kicked their butts.
