Also in CW if you go mid, you can almost always just SEE if the other team is sending a bunch to your side node. I mean, if you see 4 red guys running off to the side, chances are they are not circling around to go under and back to their own side node. So then I can look at the little dots on my minimap and decide if our own side node is going to need help, or if I should die at mid instead.

Agreed.

I think the take away for most people is use the mini map, look around and count how many enemy there are and how many friendlies there are and distribute accordingly to give your team an advantage if you can
If you find your team is at a disadvantage, you should be trying to even the numbers if appropriate.
If you donít know what you are doing, then donít try to do radical stuff. If in doubt, push the main node with the majority of the team.

But its a shame most people canít count to 8, let alone 16.

Mid is all that matters.

It just sucks big time to be one of the few that go mid.
.
so many people ignore a plan or don't have one or can't adjust when it doesn't go to plan, that I've pretty much given up suggesting things in the spawn area.

Usual response to any suggestion of a plan is "kill stuff, don't die."

- yeah..... thanks for that.... at my valor rank, It would appear I've played this game a few times in the past and know how it works....

It would be good if there was some easy way to visually identify who had high Valor rankings. Maybe then they would listen to more experienced players.
The current titles are pointless because people donít know what they mean.

The average player in regs is not good at rotating to defend the node that's being attacked. They are either too slow to rotate or over-rotate. This is why this strategy usually fails.

Now some players might be thinking, "I've used side strats and won before". . . this is because you had the superior team in damage, heals and rotations. Which means if you have the superior team it would have been easier to win by getting MID and the node where your re-spawn is.

The only time I think Side Strats are valid is if you have multiple stealth.
Your argument is moot you stat the reason for winning was an I quote " this is because you had the superior team in damage, heals and rotations." So it wouldn't make any %^$^% difference on whether you have mid or side if you have the stronger team. That said if your on the weaker team it might lure the stronger team into over extending. Doing side strategy is about capping sides quickly and while the team scrambles to grab one of the sides you go mid once you got mid you hunker down and defend both. It's a viable strategy does it always work no especially with the lame dev's complete and utter ability to balance the %&%^& classes. Most matches are complete jokes 4 mercs n 3 jugs with a couple of snipers and sorc heal etc etc the point is you go with what works. There is no wrong strategy

I wouldn't really call that a Side Strategy though. To me a Side Strategy is when your team focuses it's main effort on a side node at start rather than mid. If one or two people go to opposing team's side note at start, mid is still the team's main effort.
I always go side node ( stealth) and now a days the other team usually sends 2-3 to grab a side node. If i can stall 3 (which I have) and allow our team to cap first I can cloak out and let them cap will then 2 of the three go mid and then I solo single guard and cap side node how is this wrong? True, if the person guarding calls inc might get 2 or more coming back to help there team mate but they're also leaving mid!( What really burns my ^$^ is when i pull 4-5 stall for as long as I can and my team STILL can't cap mid. At this point you just realize your on the weaker team and you wouldn't have won any ways.)
