The very first skill you have to learn in Verdun is to know how to move and literally sense when you're exposed. I'd say it's very authentic to the real trench warfare.

Most basic rule regarding movement would be - don't stay exposed AND steady for longer than a few seconds. Experienced players have well trained eyes and can spot your tiny little head leaned over parapet on more than 100m. How? 1.It's moving, and the rest of the environment is not, so thus they can spot anything alive. 2.Even if you're proned, muzzle flashes from your weapon, helmet lenses and, again, even tiniest movement will expose you for the sharp eyes within seconds.

So when you're defending and want to scout the horizon over no man's land, do it very quick and at motion. Also, never show yourself at the same spot over and over, enemies will be waiting for you to appear where they last saw you.

Keep practicing and you'll learn it really fast. Everyone was a newbie once, there is no quick way to master this game.

Good response Kat! Also there is no safe place in Verdun. There is almost always an angle that is open. A lot of players just look forward. Pay attention to the mini-map. If you cannot see any of your team on an area of the map then the enemy is probably there and starting to flank you.

Thanks I'll look into that. But I guess I wasn't clear enough. Enemies are well inside our trenches (blue terrain) and killing me cause I obviously get caught off guard. But I can't enter enemy territory (red terrein) becaues I get executed. This is what I don't understand. Hell I can't even go "outside the map" for longer than 5 seconds ...

In "attack phase" you can go inside the red zone without getting executed? It wasn't in the grey zone but blue zone. I assume thats the red zone for them
As an Attacker, you can't go into the NML behind the trench you're trying to capture; as a Defender you can't go into the NML in front of the trench you're trying to defend.

I use the NML that you can't go into to try and flank sometimes. (Risk vs Reward)

But as a Defender, it's a little easier to flank thru the NML behind your trench. (Don't have a bunch of defenders aiming at the NML the attackers are trying to cross.)

They were probably left behind after a failed attack. This gives you a certain amount of time to return to your trench, way more than 5 seconds. I've had 80 seconds on Picardie, running through the German trench (now a red zone) and killing them with trenchclubs.
Thank goodness jump-shooting was removed
