I play primarily NC on Waterson. Having our crap together is primarily a function of time of day. During late evening EST hours the outfit/platoon leads that come on are familiar with one another and work well together. At these times, good fights are to be had (TR definitely doesn't suck during these hours). At other hours, command chat is crickets or bickering and we get our collective butts handed to us by both TR and VS. I've no idea why this seems to occur but it does. At certain hours you get better coordination. Consider playing at different hours -OR- do something about it. Get some cross-outfit communications going. Invite other leaders to forums of your own outfit. Get familiar with each other and you'll start working well together. Those ghost caps that a single squad could handle? If single-squad leaders out there here good command chat from the big platoons then they'll be inclined to work along. If a couple big platoons ask for a squad out there to help something small then you'll get the cooperation. Above all though - don't let yourself get psyched out. NC and TR are no better on Waterson than VS. Don't let a silly perception take hold.
