No really, I've been there when the tank turret didn't go low enough, when my gunner kept looking the wrong way etc.

I'm not even scared of taking 2-3 Sabot hits, I only start to get nervous when the beep beep announces engine meltdown. And of course finding an engineer in the flood of scoped riflemen, medics, spec ops and snipers is also stressful.

Personally the most demanding roles are SL and CO, but I voted for SL.

I mean, what?

Haha, seriously though, I'll add you when I get home.

I rarely go SL or CO, so I have to say transport pilot.

Especially if you have the only living chopper, and the team really depends on you doing a good job.

I would go commander, but I'm still not 100% with all the new building stuff. And that bug where stuff won't build makes the role superfluous on the large maps sometimes. Is there a commander training vid somewhere?

For me being a Squad Leader is even harder than being a commander

Wow... guess being a squad leader is quite a demanding position. You hear that boys? Listen to your squad leader coz he's working harder than your momma to keep you alive (But succeeds less often) so appreciate them and listen. Write them a card sometimes

Gunners and Pilots are stressful jobs, but in the grand scheme of things they are by no means essential to victory. You can get by with mediocre tank crews and pilots. Don't get me wrong. Skilled pilots and gunners are always welcome.

Commander is by far the most stressful position to play without a doubt. I rarely if ever play as a Commander, and have not yet in 0.7 due to the stress put on me and the fact that I don't quite know all the ins and outs of commanding yet.

I figure this: I usually play in a role down on the squad level, either leading or as a member. I like being where the "rubber meets the road" so to speak. I like organizing smaller scale tactics within my commander's orders. I can run a squad pretty well, but most the time I end up running a fireteam. When I get my commander skills honed in perfectly, i'll do it more, but until then, I'll just leave it to Patterson, DEADLIE, and Dirtboy, and many of the other well qualified commanders I have served under.

Till then you'll have a solid squad leader at your disposal. I'm sure it relieves a lot of stress for commanders having squads that listen to orders.

Helo pilot, definitely. Squad leader isn't that hard, IMO, but when you're flying (tricky enough, to learn at least) with up to 7 other people's lives depending on you, or if you're an attack helo pilot, you've gotta deal with your gunner flipping out because you moved an inch, or you're not in the perfect position, or he messed up a shot and it's your fault etc.

DEfinatly Armour Gunner, if Im in a squad using Armour and I happen to be the gunner i feel allot of pressure because Im the guy who has to defend the tank while the driver is moving, and if the tank gets destroyed....well...its basically my fault lol
