Watching guide videos, reading strats and listening to fight explanations are good preparation but until everyone has the fight memorized I find calling out the effects during the fight to work best. It's pretty easy for someone to space out on an effect and screw it up. Small things like forgetting to move pets off the shielded robot in Omnomnomotron can have disastrous results. For fights with phase changes it helps to call out the change and what to expect, for example "Toxitron active remember to DPS slimes when they spawn."You can take the hardline approach and expect everyone to remember everything, but I find that correcting problems mid-fight reduces the number of wipes and lowers the frustration level.In the event of a wipe we generally do a quick post-mortem and figure out what went wrong. Did someone not understand an effect? Did someone just screw up? Also accepting mistakes and getting people comfortable acknowledging that they messed up keeps things mellow and focused on doing better the next attempt rather than dwelling on a wipe.
