As far as marking my pods go, I generally label my clear ones with an insane amount of USPS Priority Mail stickers. Free and more than hard to peel off or mimic.

I played a scenario yesterday and today where I went through 6 pods in the last 15 of today play. I honestly didn't have time to put any of them back in my pack with the firefight being so intense for the final objective. So....I dropped every last one of them. I ended up getting shot out with about 3 minutes left. I went back to the dead zone and didn't get back to the area where my pods laid for about 10 minutes. I found every single one of them untouched.

It more or less comes down to what kind of crowd is at the field. But in general during a fire fight I drop them if I'm in a fire fight and put them back in the pack any other time.

depends on the size of the field really.

i put mine back in my vest unless i'm in a very small game, like 3 on 3 with friends, but then i don't usually take more than 1 or 2 pods with me.

I drop my pods but I pick them up after the game...

I never really loose pods...even if I dont get mine...if I walk the field at end of day after were done cleaning up I can easily find 2-3 laying around.

Same as Teddy K. Although for the pods I find, I ask if they belong to anyone. I'm nice like that, usually end up with them anyways. I am also willing to beat anyone who goes near my gear bag senseless, so no one does it. I've never had any problems.

Speedball, yes. If it is a woods game, the only time I don't is if I am in an intense firefight, usually I can easily in woods though. In speedball, I just drop them...

I usually DONT put empty pods back in my vest for a few reasons:
1) As a broadsword, its my job to lay down insane ammounts of covering fire. If I'm fiddleing with my vest, I'm not suppressing and that puts my sabers at a greater risk. At the field I play, we dont have much of a theft problem so at the end of the round, I almost always find all my pods and put them near our flag. I do not put them back in my vest, this leads me to...
2) With no empty pods in my vest, I always know how much ammo I have. Additionally, I never have the bane of pulling out a pod while laying down some proper ropes only to find.... And empty pod.

The attrition on my pods are usually 1 to 2 per day (to to being lost or dammaged). I use inexpensive pods and keep a healthy reserve in my bag, for both myself and my squadmates. (the pod I load them may be the pod they save our butts with.)

For Fast Movers (Sabers, Daggers, Ect...), by casting your pods aside rather than stowing them, you gain the advantange of faster bounding assults (a rapid and relentless advance is an essential component to a successful advance on an enemy position. After the firefight is complete and the enemy position is occupied, send a player or two out at a time to recover their pods and bring them back to your new position to quick recovery after the round. I would still advise not putting empty pods in your vest for reason #2 above.

Ultimately, It comes down to cost vs. performace. I have seen a few ideas in this topic on how to find a balance between the two. I like the sticker Idea. Custom (i.e. your Squads Logo and Name) stickers are available on the net and a fairly inexpensive if everyone on your squad chips in a little.

I hope this helps out,

I always put my pods back unless it's a small speedball game. I always seem to have enough time to shove my empty pods back.

On a speedball field or small tight field with quick games I may drop them. 2-2. 3-3. I never leave them behind on longer games or a field I don't know.
