COMMANDER MODE GAME SCREEN
BECOMING COMMANDERYou need to be a certain rank or higher to play as Commander. As Commander you fulfill a strategic role on the Battlefield by giving orders to your soldiers and providing them with equipment and information. Commander mode is available for the Conquest, Obliteration, and Rush game modes. The mode is always available on official servers. Ranked and unranked servers can disable Commander mode.
You can join a server as Commander via the server browser screen, or apply to become Commander in-game by selecting “OPTIONS TEAM SETUP TAKE COMMAND”. Commander is decided on a first come first serve bases.
However, if you connect to the server as Commander you will have a small window of opportunity where you can apply before those applying in-game.
THE COMMANDER’S ROLE
As Commander you interact with your own soldiers and the enemy soldiers, as well as the enemy Commander.
You give your soldiers orders on what to attack or defend. You deploy assets that provide your soldiers with equipment and information. You kill enemy soldiers, destroy their Commander’s assets and hide information.
The Game Mode widget provides you with information about the status of the round. If you select the Live Camera the widget will show you a view of an area. Selecting a Squad Leader will give you a first-person view.
Selecting an objective shows you a top-down view of the objective and surrounding area, while the cruise missile will show you a view from its nose camera onboard. The UAV and Gunship show a view of the area they are circling.
COMMANDER MODEMUTINY If the Commander does a poor job, and you are a Squad Leader, you can disapprove of the Commander via the TEAM SETUP screen, “OPTIONS TEAM SETUP CHANGE RATING”. If the majority of Squad Leaders disapproves of the Commander, a mutiny will start.
If a mutiny is taking place, the Commander will be kicked out within a short amount of time unless the majority of Squad Leaders toggles the rating back to “Approve”. A mutiny cannot be started against a player who recently became Commander.
SQUAD ASSET BAR
When your squads work together they are awarded squad scores. All your Commander scores contribute to your Squad Asset Bar, with which you can award your squads with assets. When a squad asset is deployed, the Squad Asset Bar is drained. The amount drained depends on the value of the deployed asset.
As Commander, if you select a Squad Leader, his squad mates will appear in green. Selecting a Squad Leader also displays any orders given to the squad as a green line. If you give the Squad Leader an order it is displayed as a dotted line, and if the order is accepted it turns into a full line. An accepted Commander order replaces any prior Squad Leader order.
COMMANDER MODEASSETS Most assets have in common that they need to have a cool-down before they can be used again, i.e. they have a short delay before they are deployed. When assets are deployed tactically and used by the team, they increase the Commander’s score.
The Asset Overview displays all assets that are available in a mission, and distinguishes between those you currently have access to and those you can gain access to. It also displays the amount of time left until you can deploy an asset.
Assets fall into three different categories:
Default – Always available to the Commander, used for gathering information and denying enemies information.
Squad – Earned by Commander scoring. Squad assets allow you to award squads with equipment or increased squad progression.
Objective – Vary between missions, contain powerful means for gathering and denying enemies information, as well as providing your team with equipment and directly attacking the enemy team.
