What makes the New Conglomerate so much more incompetent than the other factions? I'm genuinely curious because aside from the jokes and grind, I can not understand what makes them so inefficient at pushing and holding territory when other factions do so seamlessly. The most apparent example is the NC holding a facility with a population advantage of about 63%, yet none of them listen or talk. There is no communication, people rarely use /region chat, and the times that I do see /region chat being used, the advice and logistics are often ignored. As recently as 3 minutes prior to typing this exact post, there was a battle on Esamir, the NC got warpgated as expected of them, and none of them pushed back until they had less than 15% territory control. Even when the NC did start fighting back, with a population of 60% next to the warpgate, they still were unable to push in. The TR was holed up inside of the point, and the way the base was designed, there was a very large opening to ambush and rush. The door was ajar and more than wide enough to push in, be it with MAXes, or with a bombardment of explosives, yet instead of moving in, they simply stood around the corner doing nothing. I watched as 4 Engineers stood around repairing another Engineers Anti Infantry Mana Turret, all the while doing nothing to move in or push. I saw the sight, peeked around the corner, threw a Sticky Grenade into the doorway, and started farming kills. This continued for some time and by the time the NC had actually began pushing into the point, I had spawned in, walked to the point, threw a Sticky Grenade, turned around, got kills, ran back to the Sunderer, resupplied, ran back to the point, and continued to do so more than 15 times, and while I was grateful of the amount of Combat Medics reviving the few Heavy Assaults and Infiltrators, no one really pushed. Someone used /region chat to sarcastically suggest pushing, and I chimed in agreeance for people to pull MAXes from the Sunderers and rush the point, I laid out a plan for EMP Grenades to riddle the point, and then for Sticky and Frag Grenades to clear the room and for the MAXes to push in and scour the TR, in the end, we had received a single MAX unit whom stood in the doorway, getting repaired by 5 Engineers, myself included, die because he not only did not push into the point or the building, but also because he stood in the doorway, and did not retreat behind cover so that he could repaired to full health. This baffles me as the first most important thought would be to delegate such an experience to the proposal of a new player, but I had witnessed this occur with other classes as well. I noticed that there were about 50-60 people in the region attacking the base, and came to the conclusion that with the amount of people using Proximity Voice Chat, there must be a Squad, there much be a Platoon, there has to be some sort of Outfit within the area that can direct the newer players, but there was nothing more than silence. I do not understand how this occurs as often as it does on NC, as even when playing on the Vanu Sovereignty or with the Terran Republic, there is always a form of communication occurring, even in situations in which the people present are only present to farm kills and get Certs, there is still communication. I ask this because as I played TR, I made an off-hand comment of the NC not being able to utilize strategy, and was quickly messaged by an NC player, asking me to not speak such a way of a faction that "I had never played." An argument occurred and we spoke back and forth, and I ultimately decided to play the NC to see "What I Was Missing." I don't understand, that even if the NC, as it stands, receives a higher influx of newer players, why the veteran and older or more skilled members of the NC, do not help or guide them. I also don't understand the lack of logistical awareness, why would you send an overpop of 70+ people to one location, to one base on the map, to fight people, when there are 3 other crucial bases being over run by small groups of 12-24? Why sacrifice a Bio Lab and Tech Plant, to have 30 people stand around a protected Spawn Room, while 20 other people stand on a single Control Point, that is already capped, and against an enemy population of 40, that once cornered into the Spawn Room, dwindles to 15, then 7 and then 0 by the time the base is captured? I was always told that I was being too harsh on the NC, but this amount of ineptitude genuinely baffles me beyond all thought. I need the opinions and insight of others to understand the faction, and the people in game are proving to be of no use at the current moment. Thank You for your time and for reading and replying to the thread.
