employing tactics is something you learn and comes with experience, so don't expect results overnight. But don't get discouraged either, be patient young padawan, you will grow in time.

as for practices, run drills. Scrimmages can be good for learning, but eventually it turns into just you guys playing and not improving your weak points. there are plenty of articles on drills to choose from, Action Pursuit Games magazine, SPLAT magazine, RECON, the specialops website, even this forum are places to find drills. My recommendation: start with personal drills of the basics: Aiming, Running and gunning, snapshooting, moving silently, etc. After you and your teammates have honed your individual basics, then start working on team drills: cover fire, leap frogging, moving as a group, etc.

Even experienced team constantly drill the basics, and once you have these drills down, go ahead and play some more scrimmages. But mix things up. Play each others positions, so you can fill in for them and understand how their position works. Play against groups better or larger than yours. Play with pumps. *PS- i love playing with pumps, it really improves your game for any aspect of this sport.*

In conclusion, there are HORDES of information regarding pracitces and drills. Read and learn, and soon you'll be dominating young padawan!

Welcome to the ranks of Commander. ;)

Almost every infantry tactic is built around the simple flank.

Alot can be done with a couple guys supressing and a couple more moving to the side.

at practices put together 2 or 3 man squads against each other.set the scenario,execute it and then discuss what happpened and why!if you figure out your team mates weaknesses and strengths it will make your team much better at the scenarios!

every magazine out there will have tactics and stratagy's, as well as training for thoes. the best ones are the ones you come up with yourself, allways remember that YOU are the commander. A sharp mind, and confidence in yourself is the starting point for this position. Without that all the training in the world will not beable to help you if you sit around while the world falls down around you asking your squad what to do. Never share command, only put people in charge of separate groups, or elect a second in command. to be active if your toast. This doesn't mean don't take advice, just don't take advice when all #@$$ breaks loose.

forget tactics, learn to master angles and holding lanes first, master those then work on strategy, the best strategy in the world will not work if the players forget orders or don't understand that they might have a boreing but important job

also, why are you the commander? don't answer that question, think about it, do you know why, and will the guys your planing on commanding know why?
