Zeus: @Mister Magoo
I liked the idea for the mission. Deliver [thing] from point A to point B. I didn't even personally have a problem with the distance. I'm one of the people who don't terribly mind sitting in a vehicle for 20 minutes waiting on something to happen and talking shit with my squad mates. I think it might have worked out better if it had been placed earlier in the day, when people are more likely to take things seriously and more of the experienced player are awake. I'd be down to play this style of mission again, if/when you make another attempt at it.
I'm not honestly sure what happened. My understanding is you're not very experienced with the "leading people" thing, which is fine. everyone starts somewhere. That said, part of leading people is getting people to trust you on some level. Not everyone is going to play along at first, that's normal, but a good way to get there is to show people you know what you're doing, or to show them that you understand when you mess it up, and you will mess it up... it's natural.
I love this man. I've only had a few SLs who I feel comfortable with so far, as an FNG. I'm not skilled per-say at locating where i'm being shot from, or exactly where all my squad mates just ran off to, but a few people are willing to bare with me and accept that it's going to take some time for us new guys to figure it all out. He had to put up with me as his Medic for two missions and the only fussiness I got out of anyone was at one point where I was standing near a building with a Demo-block on it, which was not very bright of me. Aside from that, I like to think that i'm not the worst medic some of you will ever have, I just need a moment to figure out where you people are sometimes...
