In an effort to help build up a set of common, easy to remember and call out set of names for building and locations I've started building a new izurvive map with labels to hopefully help a bit. Lots of the names so far you might have heard on Sacriels stream as they mostly make sense for common locations.

It is possible to have more than 1 group active, just watch out when you post an update to make sure it goes to the right one.

If you want to help out build it up feel free to contribute, just remember names should be memorable and easy to call out, they don't have to be unique names but should be unique for that area (for example everything around the NWAF should be named uniquely, but can share names with places at Zelo or NEAF).

You should be able to get to the group using this link:

Or you can join the XSG-Tactics group manually, the secret key is also XSG-Tactics

I think we need to change tactics re a, b lows and barn etc. it's becoming a problem that people now know that there will be someone there.

What about finding spots that ambush players that are creeping on to those spots.

I.e ambushing players who are trying to ambush other players at the airfield or vibor military.

Wow that's a tad confusing really. Lol

I think more importantly before we start trying new tactics we try and all learn the common locations as there is no point having great tactics if when we find a player to kill no one can explain where he is!

Or worse if one person starts getting shot at they can't describe where they are being shot from or running to.

I'm off for 2 weeks from tomorrow but if anyone has any more suggestions for location names (or steals them Sacriel!), feel free to add them to the tactics overlay, it matters less what the name is and more that it is unique to that area and can be said quickly over comms without sounding like another location.

I agree but the problem from stealing them from sacriel is that everyone else is doing the same. Hence all the deaths from behind at the lows

The naming schemes dont have anything to do with the deaths, they've been largely down to our own mistakes like staying there for too long or not having anyone watching close range while others are scoped in.

If we can do better at the basics - moving together and not getting separated, calling out locations and targets better and generally working better as a squad I think we will also do better in fights as everyone knows where everyone else is and we can all focus on tracking and engaging targets rather than trying to figure out where half the squad wandered off to.

We are always going to struggle going up against squads like Sacriels as they play together day in day out whereas we tend to play less and the squad changes depending on who is online (take a look at them recently though with newer members like Hoggy and Smithy and Sac's squad have been struggling a bit and making mistakes like we do for exactly the same reasons as us).

I've updated the Tactics overlay with a bunch of changes and new locations assuming iZurvive doesn't randomly delete them

In order to make the map less cluttered we could have a username called ' or something. Now it says "MrYiff's Fire fakes" everywhere. Doing this would look kinda stupid but it would decrease the space of each name would take on the map it would just be ''s Fire fakes. That is unless someone knows a way to completely remove the username in the sticker. I can do it unless you guys thinks it's a shitty idea.
