    In today's event, Moliat put me in charge of my team. I immediately made Tim (Illuminator) my 2nd-in-command, and gave him a specific task: use fast vehicles such as quads (less useful) or the jeep (more useful) to be a quick and mobile helicopter-dodging flag-capturing tracer-darting anti-helicopter squad.

    As usual when the game started, squads were mixed up and confused, and I found myself in a squad of 2 (with Kakkura) while the other 4 members were in their own squad (Illuminator's). As I found myself in the Havoc (with Kakkura backing me up as an Engineer) this seemed okay to me, and I went with it.

    Next I practiced the art of 'staying out their way' when it came to Illuminator's (can I just call him Tim...) squad. As I was forward in the fight and not privy to what was going on with them, I left well enough alone and just worked with Kakkura (who was awesome, even without a mic).

    All the while I can hear Tim leading his squad, the guys working out tactics, calling out actions, etc.

    I just want to say that I endorse Tim (Illuminator) as a leader and Squad Captain. In essence, really, for that first part of the battle, HE was more in charge of the situation than I was. This was circumstantial I suppose, but he rose to the occasion and took it on.

    I can't say as that I really knew how effective he was, but I would encourage those that played under him today to comment pro and con as to his abilities. Mine too, for that matter.

    As for myself, I felt like I was 'weak' in leading at the start, but came on better later on, especially in the Rush match against Moliat. (I don't know why it is, but I seem to do my best when playing against him...)

    Tim, if you're humble after this I'm going to leap over to Sweden and kick you square in the nuts. Unless you object, I am re-opening your "trial" for squad captain.

    I personally think he's proved himself in the past. Don't draw out this trial stuff to far.

    Poor phrasing. What I meant to say was: Tim, you've got a new shiny badge: squad captain.
