Although i was only there for the first mission it was awesome having such a great joint ops. I had some serious FPS issues (hence having trouble figuring stuff out), turning graphics down didn't help at all.
I like being in support positons (Pilot, crew, medic...) and will keep filling in those slots in the future. I want to try a pilot position, if there is enough trust on FA side of course. (Workshop for Pilots? )fer wrote:it's a tough role for humans to play in a very long mission
On to my AAR!
Crew Chief - Nothun
Although being in a position where 1. you get shot or 2. chopper crashes, I made it through the mission without a scratch. (Number 2 applied)
After dropping of our Fireteams, we moved away from the Battlefield to await further orders. Then we decided to move in and support the ground forces with covering fire and spotting. just as we came close to Alphas position, desync kicked in and dropped the chopper out of the sky. It landed firmly on the ground.
I thought Zitron got shot and hopped out to check on him, but all of the sudden the server was syncing again, and the chopper was happily flying away from me...
Called out to Zitron to pick me up again, he in turn was confused as how the f i got out of the chopper in the first place.
Back in the chopper we went on scouting runs and providing fire support around the town, me marking E.I. and the like. ( This caused me to stay in command chat... sorry )
We took some hits, but nothing serious and took up a good spotting position on the south side of the town. All of a sudden MG bullets ripped our engine to shreds, but thanks to Zitrons flying skills, we managed to reach the ground safely.
At this point I was confused and calling out Hostiles to Zitron and asking him to (please) retreat. I did all of that on Command Chat .
It didn't take long for Zitron to catch a bullet, and I was ordered into the valley to meet up with friendly's. Victory Fire commenced shortly after, but it was bittersweet, as we lost a good pilot.
