  1. As a direct answer to your question. You are always welcome to join. Just ping zeus and get the uniform and requirements and they will TP you to an appropriate squad. But there maybe times when a mission is nearly over amd it isn't worth the hassle. I always look at the map as soon as I spawn in to see how far they are. If i am in as a SL or what not feel free to join my squad.
  2. Honestly @cyanide i thought you did well. In true military and arma fashion things went ti crap fast. You did the best you could despite the circumstances. We all made mistakes in not realizing that red smoke was a warning about incoming arty. Just because a mission goes badly it isn't always plt at fault. I died early in the assualt portion when Foxtrot got wiped with arty. But from my perspective you did your best to keep things organized and flowing.
  3. I get the failed to load profile every time but my stats still update.
  4. @Judgeman pmc mission today. Good Lord we got hammered time and time again. If it wasnt long range MAT, it was accurate sniper fire, or suprression fore from mounted miniguns. Alpha squad, we did our best but we just kept getting picked apart. Tried a bumrush there near the end aftee spending nearly half an hour being pinned down by miniguns and lmg. Not by best SL moment. Sorry.
  5. I started this post for the purpose of discussion on the real value of ironsights only missions. I really have no complaints about being overwatch. In fact I volunteered my squad for the duty the day I posted this. I don't measure the success of a mission by my KD ratio. In fact I could not care less about it. But with alive mod and instadeath being turned it just seems that we should be able to be outfitted as a modern day soldier on these modern day missions. And a modern day squad assigned overwatch would not be limited to iron sights. My complaint on this day had nothing to do with @seishimaybeC. We effectively eliminated a couple squads with both MAT and impressive LMG fire. It was a good overwatch mission. I merely think that just to male things difficult is not an excuse for the zeuses to deny modern optics. I know what kind of PLT i will get when @seishimaybeC leads. I can respect her tactics even if I disagree with her. IRL her tactics are some of the best, but if we are going to use real life tactics that minimize casualties then we need to use IRL equipment. That being said I will contunue to volunteer my squad for overwatch positions because I know how critical they are in a mission. Amd honestly they can be a great amount of fun.
  6. Hey I did that entirely by accident the other day. Didnt realize until we had already tp to load up. But since i didnt do the whole tank crew helmet i know you weren't referring to me. Lol.
  7. This was kind of my thought. But even a single marksman means only one or two persons are doing anything effective from OW. I can't say for certain who was one shotting us today but we were being targeted ny a sniper/marksman for certain because we barely heard the report from the gun. We have to allow each squad the ability to fulfill their mission while making it difficult but wothout totally frustrating them in the meantime.
  8. Maybe my weapons choices have just had awful iron sights then. Most iron sight championships are 500 meters or so. The ultra championships the elite if the elite shioters) run from 700 to 1000. But irl foot soldiers are not trained to be marksman at those ranges, so to expect an overwatch to run effectively (even if you can do it lenny) is a bit on the unrealistic side.
  9. @Lenny i run full ultra 1080 settings on my monitor and have 20/10 vision and with iron sites I could not make out targets accurately at 500m. It was spray and pray after that. 3 round burst and then back to the binocs to see if the EI moved. Meanwhile we were getting one shot hit from the EI. Its not impossible to take shots at 800m but very hard to be accurate given the limitations of the game. I can make shots at 600 and 700m in real life with my AR15 but my vision is much clearer IRL than what we get in arma.
  10. Thanks for the kind words. I believe that as PLT I should make quick plans, adapt to change quickly, and over do what i can to contribute to fun gameplay.
  11. I cant stand when people say or type REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
  12. I have really enjoyed the increasing difficulty that going iron sights only provides with our gameplay. But we need to find some sort of a compromise based on the way that we actually run our missions when we are in full six Squad forum. We currently and as we have in the past continue to set up scenarios in which OverWatch is required and desired however other than being a set of eyes on a hill most OverWatch positions provide no ability for the soldiers to engage the enemy. Sitting on a hill six hundred meters out from the edge of an area that we are supposed to be providing covering fire for is almost completely ineffective with the exception of the lmg team. I am simply interested in beginning discussions on how we could more appropriately utilize positions such as OverWatch while we try to increase the difficulty the game play with iron sights. OverWatch is no longer a truly safe position with instadeath being on. As my squad found out today you can still be one shot killed even up at an OverWatch position. It certainly seems that the EI are much better Marksman with iron sights then we can hope to be because we are limited. What are your thoughts concerning this? Do we need to even change anything? Or do we just tell OverWatch to suck it up? How can we adjust our tactics to this new style of gameplay or do we need to make some other changes? I propose maybe we start allowing Scopes again as the difficulty is increasing with both instadeath and Advanced Medical right around the corner.
  13. @Conga Line of Neckbeards, for the record you disconnected from our group on sharktac as well as dropped your gun. To me as your squad lead you, for all intents and purposes, appeared quite dead. Had either of those two tell tales not occured you would have been brought along without hesitation. That being said we should do more to make sure the mentality of no one left behind holds. Bodies are still brothers and we should grab them and bring them home as they do in the real world. Maybe with more CSAR we will make that a priority.
  14. 2nd mission Foxtrot SL Zeus: @TobiWan great quick mission. Good job with a realistic approach and engagement. PLT: @Derpy as always a good overall stategy and plan with unique approches. Having Delta and Echo drop into the water for a swim insert was brilliant. Great use of assests. Nice job stealing the tank. Unfortunately you killed my medic there at the end while shooting the rocket at the hind. Squad: @ZentharTheMagician, @12rai, @Bumling(2ic), @waspnest77, @atomicbucko122, @Conga Line of Neckbeards, one more guy cant remember. You all were great. Good clearing of the compound. Bucko was explosives happy and glad he got to blow a lot of stuff up. Conga did a great job of patching us up when he could. Zenthar was great as usual leading the aar. Kai needs to watch his situational awareness as he walked right in front of bumling when bumlong was engaging targets and got himself headshot. My only losses were due to FF incidents. Great job squad.
  15. My perspective maybe skewed but that is all I have to go by. This is a way for us to give you our viewpoint and for you to see things from our perspective. I mean no offense by my evaluations but i have nearly 25 years of tactical decision making and i am keenly aware i never had all the information. I understand the solace of overwatch as well. So please don't take my input as trying to demean you but rather as another point of view. I never meant to imply your decisions weren't thoughtful actually if i have any issue is that you overthink the situation. I find your decision making to be very interesting if not reserved a little too much. But hey Im just some old guy.
