"Crowding the Barricade"

This reminds me of people "back-to-the-wall"-ing every object they come across. :lol: "Crowding the barricade" is apparently the term, official? Who knows?

I've heard "crowding the cover/barricade" used to refer to any situation where you hug your cover and get too close to keep your field of view wide. I've also seen a very good argument against this dogma from Kyle Lamb, who points out that if you have to take cover behind a car and are being engaged from the second level of a building, you get much more effective cover as you get closer.

This is a problem you should not encounter IRL because every member of your team knows his place. the nearest thing to crowded should be stacking up to enter a room.
