Manged to get some training ops in today.

[SAS] Involved:

Presido — Tango Hunt
MP Warehouse — Hostage Rescue
Import-Export — Tango Hunt
MP Prison — Hostage Rescue

We did a mix of stealth/dynamic assaults in one and two Elements at a time. Operations were largely successful with low to medium casualties. We managed to keep a pretty good pace about it. Next time I should cook up a harder batch of missions hehe. I think every one did very well and I hope to see more in the future.

I generally gave direction for the missions. In the hopes of keeping the planning phase relatively simple.

I’ve been doing it a long time, so I’m pretty comfortable at planning and leading an operation in RvS. Some thing I find a bit hard to hand down.. I’d really like to try and set up some operations where the less experienced can give it a shot and have time to work through things in full. The problem is how to do that right, without locking the server down to like 3 or 4 [SAS] lol…

I’ve never considered my self a leader, just look at Random if you want a true leader! But I think in my case Rouges sig puts it best. “Lead me, follow me — or get out of my way”. I don’t mind leading and planning a mission, but I do want others to have a chance to do it too.

The only problem is in training ops, getting 2 Element Leaders (Senior / Junior), giving them a brief, a set of goals and operating guidelines + them planning the shindig and executing it takes all day. And I’m sorry to say… most weekends I can’t devote that much time.

In to days case I got off work early, since I only *tend* to have light duties on the weekends. So I got to spend a lot of time on the server both before, during, and after training today. I don’t think I’ve gotten to spend that much effort on it since I was a Trooper hehe. Felt dang right un natural to spend all day on the PC. And I’m the kind that nearly dreams he’s working at the computer !

One thing I do want to do is try to get some thing set up for SWAT4 Continuation Training. But its very difficult because, well to put it simply SWAT4s stock missions SUCK compared to RvS’s on what I can use them for. But in S4 its so much easier to get into the nitty gritty elements of the training. *sigh* this will take much thought.
