As ATG and its loyal core of players has matured, I thought a template for organizing random games might be a good idea. While this template is best suited for multi-player random games, parts of it are useful even for single player games against the AI. If nothing else, use it as a checklist of things to think about.

Of all the things listed, a critical map analysis is key. If this analysis is faulty, you and/or your team likely will be at a disadvantage. Second, if playing with four or more players, close coordination is required. If your team of players is basically operating independent of one another with their own agendas, your team will be at a disadvantage against a team that is closely coordinated.

Please feel free to add your comments and suggestions.

Concentrate force! Dilution is defeat...
Act purposely! No purpose equals missed opportunities...
Remain flexible! War is fluid with ebbs and flows...

Hi Web.
I am playing around with the new officer thingy and I will start our game tomorrow, but when I find time, I might come up with some thoughts if you wish (I don't wish to be smothering). You have touched upon many of the absolute essentials here already. It is hard to describe to someone who hasn't seen it all come together though. It is like trying to describe fog to someone who has never seen. It seems simple but you know you are not saying it correctly.
I will work on something pertaininig to "Staging For Battle" on a tactical level, as that is a particularly weak area for many players. In our 3v3 game right now, I am at 27 tank kills and 2 tank losses and it all comes down to staging. Allen never leave his tanks where I can reach them... anymore :-)
Anyway, I only have a little bit of time so back to the new beta release, got to see what the officer thing does.

@Meanie: My template is, currently, just a high level starting point. Thanks for your feedback. It is at the tactical level where the rubber meets the road. I'm certain in our upcoming game I'll learn a lot about the finer details and will then update the template.
