I voted other/explain.

If the cover permitted it, I would longball the opposition from my concealed position and retreat when they became aware of me. Then I would attempt to circle around and sneak onto the high ground without being detected. With any luck, the opposition would be watching my old position and expose their flank to my new one. The logic behind this is that the other team would assume two things: first, only newbies longball and secondly, newbies never change their position. If they did think in this manner, they would be easy to eliminate.

I would say try to have a small squad of your team get into a quick but defensive firefight with them on the side that would make them face away from you, then try to fall back a bit further out of their sight and go for said position. Then you can have your squad get out of there with hopefully minimum loss and they can lure the squad into your ambush to expose their flank.

If my current position is good enough to engage the enemy squad, I would stay put, and retreat to that position if I had to. If my position wasnt good enough, but I had sufficient cover, I might try to move when the enemy wasnt looking my way.

Call for my team to send up a squad to engage them immediately after they pass my position. Take out enough to gather their attention stop shooting, and have my squad engage them. Then while they're not looking, move to better cover and, if there are any left, finish the job.

In an ideal situation.

In the normal situation when you're on your own I'd let them pass, light them up and then move before the rest of them show up.

At the very least you'll have a better position next game.

If this area offered that much of a better advantage then why were you not there in the first place.

I would let them pass, and them lay a splat on them when they get maybe 20 yards past me. THen, I would belly crawl up to the hill and set up foor the next wave. This is usually in my playbook anyway. I start out in an area that has several cover spots, and as I take out waves, I move from my worst cover to my best cover as they become more aware of my general position.

just let the squad know they are coming and then sit tight...if it was one, maybe to guys that's on thing...but any more than that and it's generally pretty stupid to engage them on your own.

I voted explain. This would be my plan:

First, I would radio into commander, tell them where I am, and where to advance from. My plan would be to have a squad of 3-4 players on my team, advance them from the rear(if they are facing me) and put them into a fighting retreat. Once there have got close enough to me, I would attack from behind, signaling my teammates to send flankers to each side. Which in effect would block off all escape routes for the OpFor and pin them down.
