It is simple. Be aware. Be aware of your surroundings. Know how to keep a good line going. Know how to not bunch up, but not to spread out to far, and stick with your team, but also realize some people are stupid, and you should know yourself weather to follow someone or not.
DON'T GET INTO SUICIDAL SITUATIONS! You can always wait for things to calm. That's the biggest thing that gets me, watching n00bs run into a killzone full of crossfire and explosions, and than rage when they keep dying. Really? Well if you don't put yourself in that situation you won't die so often.
You don't need to talk with your team that much either. I do it fine and I have no mic, and rarely play with my friends, and if I do I'm not communicating with them that much. Port Valdez is an excellent map, as with all of the maps. The maps in BC2 were designed to have a diverse style of play for each map. The way you might play one map will not work for others. Get used to it. War ain't easy. Think. Pace yourself, and than maybe you can overcome these problems. I PWN Port Valdez.
Also, Revives get a ticket back. Its honestly never a bad idea for a medic or a team to revive someone, EVER with this logic. At least with Conquest and Rush. Its only bad for YOU to be revived if your in a bad spot or want a different kit. Not much to do. Just get used to it or QQ.
Its an awful map, and complies with the DICE's map policy of a completely linear map design with no flanking/strategic options available, where the only way to win is just overpower the other team with brute force and no real strategy. Its just a huge meat grinder. I hope Battlefield 3 maps aren't linear, and go back to the good old days of BF2 maps
I don't experience this kind of play... Maybe people just don't know how to move around...? I will agree Port Valdez is a complete thin line, but its the extreme for BC2. Every other map is much more open.
I'll end this with, To each his own. This game isn't for everyone, and not everyone has to play it or play that map even. Anyway, I like to watch people QQ so whatever. See you on the Battlefield
