    An open field of enemy ink. And the kid run-n-guns a straight line throught it. In full view of a perched charger and a Batman roller wall-jumping towards them.

    I know that's a bad situation. Yet I'm having trouble instructing why this is a bad situation.

    And as nervous as it makes me, I really would like to help other players improve and enjoy themselves, especially when they ask. But as with the above example, I'm having difficulty properly evaluating performances like a mentor instead of like an analytical player-bot.

    So I'm seeking any advice possible: how do I observe and critique other players, on either team, so they can improve?

    Are these players looking for advice? Because if not you're likely to just anger them, no matter how good your intentions. There's been studies showing that unsolicited advice has a tendency to get negative reactions from folks even when it's right.

    Yes, they are. And then there's that occasional moment when they're in a salt fit and then you're not sure if they want advice while they're venting or just venting to let off steam.
