@MattKB I like your style. Rushing him at the end was the right move although you had other rush options but on the front foot, I like it. You and your buddy are right to run around together for a while and get used to the maps, weapons and movement of scvas/players. @Len and @Adrock did/do something similar, I think when two players are at a similar level the learning experience increases for the two of you. When you play with more advanced players it can almost be too fast and a little daunting so this is the right approach to take.
Look forward to playing with you both when you feel like a squad run.
We had our best squad run only the other night and thats after probably, 8 or 10 weeks of playing together?
This game is hard and actually, I think its the hardest wipe Ive played yet.
