    I see the "crack shot" next to my name, but I was wondering what the label "solid" meant. Trazoi and someone else both have it, and I can't figure it out.

    Passable shooters, not great. In other words, its a good idea to try not to make them eat a laser burst.

    On the topic of eating laser bursts, when will you create new rookies?

    Got a whole squad of them warming the benches at GIANTINTHEXCOM.

    You're one of them. In the event of a main squad member biting it, one of you guys immediately hops on the ranger.

    You're not a great shot, but in general you're passable at most things. 50 bravery too.

    Yes, I made SERGEANT!

    Also, I've been talking with Chumbly, and I think with enough pamphlets, a phrasebook, a megaphone, and some method of mass mind control, I could incite the aliens to overthrow their oppressors.

    I'm not sure we can get those.

    I mean, pamphlets? Megaphones? You think we're made of money?

    Mass mind control, we're working on that one.

    Well, of course Cryssalids will be a horror if you don't use any tactics and just run around as if you're trying to get your scouts infested and/or shot.

    We do... kinda. No weapon goes full auto, the best you can hope for are 3-shot bursts. So instead of quantity, let's go for quality and blow 25% of the battlescope map with one Blaster Bomb!

    Gotta agree.

    Guy sent out scouts to shoot at zeds with no backup. And he, while in desperate need of materials, sent nothing to intercept a scout right over Antarctica?

    Geesh. No wonder the zeds got him.

    It looked like he knew exactly what he was doing BUT was trying to be funny, not win. He knew - and said - exactly what was up with Chryssalids, but had done things like put his base on the south pole.

    Default Apple pie, sectoids, and one suit of personal armor.

    Also, he could be manufacturing Laser tanks for backup. No exotic materials needed.

    I mean, Laser tanks aren't up to, say, hovertank standards for 'lid slaughtering, but they do pack a kick.

    Well, it seemed the doctors were determined to keep me from the fight. Lousy traitors.

    "Listen, maggot, have you ever seen a man's entrails on the outside? Because if I don't get out there..."

    "Actually, I'm seeing that right now. I think that's your... liver sticking out a bit there?

    "Flesh wound."

    And, once again quoting Monty Python fails me.

    "Well, we did get a transmission for you. Came from Fort Fri."

    "Put it on."

    The screen flickered.

    "Hey, Commander. Heard about the plasma wound. Get well soon, okay? I heard Knight's the backup squad leader, and his tactical skills... leave something to be desired."

    "I assume this isn't a purely social call? I could be planning a daring escape this very second."

    "Right. Well, the squad at Fort Fri had its first drop. Figured you'd want details."


    We found the UFO almost immediately. Kane, Jimor, and I went over to investigate. I sent Pie Guy down south to check for any aliens on watch.

    "We managed to get to the first door with no injury, so I sent Kane ahead to scout. Like you always say Sir 'Command has a duty to show the men how war ought to be fought. And one of the main rules of war is to never risk a commanding officer when a rookie would do.' He spotted two Xenos."

    I dropped one and we both returned safely to cover.

    "Sadly, Kane's second scouting didn't go so well. I dropped the rest of the crew (including a remarkably stupid engineer). But it was too late for private Kane."

    "Meanwhile, Privates Kane and Pie Guy..."

    "Wait. WHAT?"

    "I don't know either, Sir. Kane said not to worry about it, and the whole matter does seem a bit academic at this juncture."

    "True enough."

    "Anyway, Pie Guy dropped a Sectoid, and that was the end of the thing."


    "Well, good job."
    "Thank you, Commander. Going to get some Pizza from the mess. Seems the value of the recovered gear should let us improve the quality of the chow a tad."
    "I'll put Pie down for a promotion."

    "Won't that cause a bit of uncertainty about chain of command? I think there was a Sgt. Rock comic about that."
    "Every fifth Sgt. Rock comic was about conflicts of authority in Easy, and they did alright."
    "They are fictional, Commander."
    "You, son, are very lucky to be in another continent right now. Say that again..."
    "Right. Won't. Sgt. Ninja, signing off."

    And so, poor Kane has departed. Or, in a sense, de-parted.

    Yeah, he was, it's in the comments.


    Still, I have all rights to call other operatives amateurs while I'm at the base trying to figure out how often you can get drunk working for X-COM without getting fired.
    I mean, it's not like it would affect firearms accuracy, but still, with some people, you just don't know.

    Hey, there's nothing wrong with my tactics! It's not my fault that the rest of the team aren't heros like the Commander and Lopez, or unkillable like Copper.

    Close combat would work a lot better if we had more people like them.

    (well, not like Copper, of course.)
