Alpha / Bravo --> Assault / Defense

I think we should return to the old Assault and Defense names for the teams. Or Assault West / East for example for take and hold.

It's not always immediately clear to me if the team i'm joining is attacking or defending. Changing the team names to Assault / Defense will make it clear instantly.

Besides we're gonna need Alpha and Bravo for when Fireteams are implemented right? Weren't they planned for the spring release? >:)

Anyone else thinks Assault / Defense is better?

    On some maps both teams are attacking, such as Harbor Assault.

    Yes, that's what i mean by Assault West / East for take and hold. Both sides are attacking but you can distinguish between them by adding the general direction where they spawn.

    But for other modes like C4 or capture the flag i think it would be quicker to see the difference if the teams were simply named attack / defend or assault / defense.

    I agree, that would be nice, The only thing about that is having assault and defend what happens when you swap sides mid match?

    What do you mean?
    You would just go to the other team. If you're on assault and you swap team then you're on defense.

    So...."Team Assault/Defense won the Match!"

    Doesn't have to be like that.

    It could just be "Mission accomplished" or "Mission failed", or something like that, on the screens of the respective teams.

    Or at least something like this:

    That way it's more clear what side is attacking and what side is defending.

    hhm, at first i didn't even notice the small text under the logo's.

    But now that i do it seems they don't work properly yet. I'm playing watchdog, defense on alpha right now. But it says attack.

    Can have alpha and bravo... Just have the game tell you in the scoreboard and team selection who is attacking and who is defending.
