Warriors often do not hear the shouted communications
Here is something you may find of interest. This is one reason I say don't talk while the fight is on. It's not going to be heard or at least heard right.
Warriors often do not hear the shouted communications that occur in combat. Small unit leaders have always understood that in order to get the attention of their troops and be heard and be seen in combat, they have to be in front of them. Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, On Combat------------------------------ This concept makes for a great firearms training exercise we refer to as The "Auditory Exclusion Drill." (Remove hearing protection for best training feedback) Two shooters fire in a pattern, one after another. (Not in unison) Shooter 1 fires one shot, right after the shot is fired from shooter 1, shooter 2 fires two shots then repeat same firing pattern with as little time in between shots as possible), while taking turns yelling tactical commands such as "guy on the left has a gun" or "I'm out of ammo, cover me, I'm reloading." Then when the mags are empty and the smoke has settled, see how much information you heard clearly from your shooting partner.... Did the spectators who were watching the drill catch anything clearly? If you think you can communicate in a gunfight/flash attack, you may be surprised...
