For some builds you might benefit from suggesting to your allies that they stay in a certain area. Ritualists, for example, place Spirits on the map with a limited range of effect. These Spirits often grant a defensive bonus, so encourage your teammates to pay attention to which effects they have on them. Let them know to retreat to the safety of the Spirits if they extend too much and begin taking excessive damage.
Lots of Assassins enjoy Shadow Stepping into the midst of the enemy team for a quick strike, then teleporting out. If you plan to do this, let your team know beforehand. Otherwise, your allies may think you've gone suicidal or just have no battlefield awareness. They may feel less inclined to help you, and might even leave the game, unless they know you've got a concrete and realistic method to escape from danger.
If you die, you can Ctrl-click on your name in the party window to announce that you're dead to your team. Hopefully, this will spur them to resurrect you. While dead, you may still have a Resurrection Signet to use, so type that in team chat as well. That helps a living ally decide who to resurrect if more than one teammate has died. Also while dead you can click on a teammate to watch the action from that perspective. This will often reveal useful information. Sometimes you may see ridiculous builds that you didn't notice before, which could help you understand why your team lost. Or you may witness a spectacular effort by a top notch player as he or she defeats the last of the enemy.
When your allies die, you can Ctrl-click their names in the party window to announce their death to the rest of the team. Do this if you've already used your Resurrection Signet and want to announce dead members to the rest of the team so they can resurrect the fallen ally.
Finally, make sure to announce when you resurrect someone. Many teams in Random Arenas lose because they fail to quickly revive teammates. With a team slow to resurrect, some people even start to leave the game. Announcing your resurrect skill usage deters leaving and supports teamwork.
Communication about the Enemy
As you approach the other team, tab through the different targets. Look for obvious healers, such as Monks or Ritualists, and call them out. Keep an eye on Assassins circling the perimeter as they often seek an opportunity to teleport in. If you see a Ranger laying Traps, Ctrl-click on the skill and you'll announce the skill in team chat. It helps to note the location of Traps so your team can avoid those areas. Also, casters then know they can attempt to wand the Trapper and get some free interrupts.
After you kill an opposing member, scan the enemy for resurrection attempts, even if you don't have an interrupt or knockdown to prevent it. Resurrection skills take a while to cast so you can probably spot an attempt and Ctrl-click on it so your team knows about it. This way, someone else who does have an interrupt can stop the resurrection from occurring. Also, noting a person using a resurrection skill can draw your team to attack that person. Many times this forces the target to stop casting and retreat or stand there and take the damage. Either way it helps your team emerge victorious.
