I'll get my squad leader head on after Ramadan. My mind should hopefully be a little clearer by then!

When people meet me and DarkD, they want to join!? Something is wrong there, I can be a bit of an arse (or a DarkD, take your pick) when being a SL :P

But I'm up for seeing where a squad server will take us. It would be further down the line when I could start contributing but I am interested.

I was SL yesterday for the first time after 40 hours....it was a cluster f***. To be honest we didnt do too badly as Taran was providing hints and tips every minute telling me what to do next. I did enjoy it, but my gosh it was challenging to say the least. Only one way to learn, jump off the cliff and then develop the wings on the way down!

@morhped you are crazy, I have 400 odd hours and I still find being a sl really hard,

well done for stepping up as we need more but I would spend 100 hours or more learning from good sl on other servers....

Absolutely what I am doing....taking notes to see what good SL's are doing on Rest in Places, DADS and a few other servers that have good SL's on them. Enjoy your time relaxing Taran with the family, we look forward to continuing the dialogue when you are back.....

Cool beans we will just have regular players and wont do any recruitment. I spend 5 hours this evening as squad leader and pardon my French but it went bloody well for a newbie- great team, some big individual stars. We won every game and often we were the top scoring team. Hell if no one wants to blow your trumpet you gotta blow it yourself, right?
On a serious note it was great fun but my brain is smashed now, I need a chill pill to sleep tonight. Off tomorrow to take the kids sailing to isle of Wight but will be back on Monday. See you then - cheers KM

kicking ass and taking names. KM is on a roll people, stand back and watch the show!
Yeah, it's a real drainer. I found that I love it, I really love it, but get lost in it. I sink in too far and become over-emotional. I used to love commanding BF, and leading a squad in this game felt awesome. The sheer magnitude of it all is immense. Different sl's talking, coordinating, squad comms, contacts, it all adds up to a real drain overall. A massive buzz, especially if you win or if you get some thanks/congrats for leading, but what a drain it really is. I didn't find much rest and relaxation in it. I revelled in the realism and the comms and all, but couldn't find a way to have fun with it. It always just took me into a different mode, like business mode, serious mode, calm killer under pressure mode. No room for emotion when you're leading the squad. So so tough. I had to leave it alone. I hope that you guys playing it get the hours of fun from it that you paid for and deserve.

Interesting analogy Spawnsy and I can sort of see your pain, I felt the mental drain but it was fun.....

...maybe the novelty will wear off but for now its fun so let's go for it!
