Again, any information, even if it's harder to decipher while playing, is better than none. Not sure if you are making a joke about the thread in general but regardless these days I'll take whatever I can get versus no communication at all.

"Other door" is still better than nothing imo.
^^ this

the "other door" is usually reserved for those rabblerabble derp pugs where the whole mass moves together
and the "other door" is the one where everyone isnt

With respect to VS calls and L/R, you guys are probably right and E/W is more definitive. I guess I've noticed a lot of other's using the 'L/R from spawn' calls enough to assume that was 'universally' accepted as the call to use in this WZ.

I also never ever take into consideration the mini map for directions. I don't know if that's good or bad but I have seen people calling directions off the mini map which is usually backwards from the M map.

And when attacking and someone says 'all left, stealth right' that too is based off your own attacking respawn vantage. Again, this is just what I've noticed.

If they can't understand a map, then I can't help them really.

The minimap is only a zoomed and more detailed version of the M map. It is never backwards.

Door / Other Door

If BW would provide 'N/S/W/E' on minimap/map for those direction challenged, it would all be simple.
it's harder to misspell 'snow' with 'grass' while WEAST is common mistake.

It's a shorter initial run to go left out of spawn in CW (by about the exact width of mid) and one could argue that it is advantageous to run by the enemie's spawn when cycling back to mid; while you never really want to fight off the node, it's better to intercept the other team before they get to your node, plus you might intercept anyone that is running back over to your off node, whereas if they are running to their natural you will be all the way across the wz from them and have to turn around.

The only one where this gets confusing is Voidstar. I've always thought using cardinal directions would be easier and cause less confusion than "left/right".

Well if we are really getting down to it, voidstar is a ship in space so we should all be using port and starboard...just sayin.

If you're in the spawn in Voidstar it's tough to tell which way to go when someone does this. Especially if half your team is in there with you it can be tough to tell which door is under pressure.
