    Would be up for Sl if the main sl are in other platoon. Been meaning to sl but always more competent people in the role already lol.
    Have to wait and see on the game being fixed though!

    Yay!


    Also, I'd be up for being off-PL, so to speak.

    Can I remind peopl that many of us are more than willing to 'mentor' new platoon and squad leaders. This usually involves plunging you in the deep end and giving you the reins to a squad or platoon but having someone experienced on hand to give one-to-one advice, to answer questions, or to run strategy / tactics / orders past before you tell the platoon if you feel unsure.

    It's helped people in the past get comfortable with leading and overcome any possible lack of confidence. I, for one, am more than happy to provide mentoring if someone asks.

    ---

    On that note: If you find yourself PLing and you know you regularly PL, then just suggest that you joint PL with someone who wants to be mentored and put that offer out there.

    Absolutely. I'll make sure to check on mumble a bit beforehand if there is anyone who would like mentoring. Which i'm always happy to do also.

    I'm happy to mentor aspiring squad leaders! I don't know how available I will be the coming weeks with the Community Clash and all, but if I'm free, just ask and I will be of assistance.

    More than happy to help volunteers to PL or SL.
    Being PL or SL may or may not be to your liking, but how will you know for sure until you give it a go?

    I used to dabble in leading practices and scrims in my CS1.6-days, I wasn't good at it and I didn't enjoy it :-p

    But then can anyone truly admit to enjoying Counter-Strike? it put me off FPS games, and online play in general until a few years ago.

    I loved counterstrike - I was actually good at it too, which just makes my PS2 performance so much more disappointing...

    Me too. I watched some competitive matches of global offensive and I'm tempted to go back.

    On topic - I'll need to actually try SL at some point when it's a bit quieter I think during stratgir would be a bit too large a leap!

    Cephas - if anything I think it's a bit easier to SL stratgir. So long as you have a good grasp of all the game mechanics, the squads are always super responsive and you don't really need to worry about strategy much since the PL is telling you where to go.

    Happy hunting if you try it anyway!

    It's actually easier in StratGir :
    - You're a true SL, not a PL in disguise. You don't need to look at the map, you don't need to worry about strategy. You only focus on Tactics, and the squad that is with you.
    - In StratGir, all people have to follow orders more strictly than usual, so you will be leading an actual squad, instead of herding cats.

    If you're unsure, ask for a mentor. He will join your squad, and will provide advices when asked, or give warnings if he notices something is going wrong. Several of our veterans PL/SL (myself included) are happy to mentor.

    Thursday means StratGir!

    Who is interested in the platoon leader and squad leader positions? Never tried it out before? Thursday is the best time to do it! Multiple outfit veterans have uttered that they are happy to mentor new SLs and PLs. :)

    I have guests this evening so I don't know when I'll be on. If an SL is needed at the time I'll take it however.

    I would be up for SL or maybe even a bit of PL if someone will mentor. But that is all dependant on whether i experience the usaul lag fest during double xp evenings.....

    Minor hi-jacking of the thread...

    Double xp doubles medal bonuses as well right? Because I'm within striking distance of my first ever auraxium medal. I reckon a solid three hours of grinding with the sirius ought to do the trick (and probably leave me hypnotised and unable to sleep).

    This does unfortunately not work, Wally. Did that mistake myself a while ago
