TL;DR: Don't want to lead; Oh look, I'm leading
I didn't want to lead but then I wanted the session to get underway so I did the next best thing; I Bothered the shit out of AJAX (SL) to get him to tell me what to do
The mission was to take a town on a hillside. We had armour and lots of guns. We came, we saw, we GG'd.
I do prefer missions where by most of the players are operating in same area as it feels...cozier but both squads were split up and for good tactical reason.
We approached the town from two angles and obliterated the enemy. AJAX was so proud of Grumpy's performance he promoted him to Dead.
Learning outcomes: I hate urban combat. Friendly fire is thing, AI sink into floors, performance is usually pants and enemy seem to come out of every little hole. I would perhaps look to just carpet bomb the entire town next time.
TL;DR: Low speed; Some drag
The mission was to drop in, drop bombs, drop out.
We came in by littlebirds, however, I'm sure by the speed at which we were going that "auto-hover" had been left on. The traffic behind us backed-up a mile long.
We blew up some stuff and left.
Learning outcomes: I wasn't leading but if I was; just for fun I might get the helicopters to drop us on the roofs
