APC gunner is a nightmare. VOIP voice lag is a nightmare so telling your driver to "stop!" (so you can shoot at a target) is invariably a stressful time because he usually doesn't hear you until its too late!

I think being a squad meber is very stressful as its annoying when your in a squad and your squad leaders a bit half hearted and the rest of the squads not listening. Ive given up on being a squad member because of this and just lead now.

If I don't make it , tell my wife i said "hello".

Medic... It's stressful enough, risking your life to try and save someone, dodging bullets, smoking the enemy, locating the wounded and then... They give up right at your feet.

Jet Pilot, mostly because I don't know how to fly the god damned things, so it would be stressful trying to make sure I don't crash it.
Otherwise I'd say heli pilot, you're a huge target, you have little to no cover, and an entire squad is depending on you to survive.
And if you fail, not only do you have 6 people pissed at you, but you loose a bunch of tickets and one of the most important assets.

Heli pilot is quite stressful as you aren't just relying on your own skill but your net connection aswell. If you get a lag spike in middle of flying you can end up with DEAD looking at you when your out of it.

The reason I stopped flying until I had a better GPU and a solid connection but back then it was just a matter of time until I spiked or froze up and now it is a random event that happens so infrequently ( until this weekend ) that I don't worry about it.

Definitely Squad Leader for me. When I am on a map that I know well, I will almost always do great as a squad leader, but when I hit a map I don't know very well, disaster strikes.

good squad leaders make the game go round, and so it's alot of pressure to succeed.

I'd say Transport Heli. It's the most rewarding but also the most pulse-pounding, and if you die your whole team gets pissed at you for wasting that resource.

I've practiced flying jets and helis a lot in offline mode and on training servers, but when I'm flying in a public server the anxiety of having people watch me takes hold and I do stupid stuff that I don't do in the training servers. I guess I simply need more practice flying in pubs.

By stupid mistakes, I mean listening to a squads orders a little too closely. Squads have ordered me to land on the side of a cliff before or fly directly into a hot LZ. The times that I actually listened to them didn't go well.

The fact that this game causes anxiety means it's truly a great game. If you crash a helicopter then you know it's going to take forever for another one to respawn and you also know it will deeply hurt your team's ability to function. So in order to fly a helicopter you have to be a responsible, good pilot.

Games like BF2 don't have that kind of pressure and aren't nearly as enjoyable because of it.
