Default Your most stressful Role

Hi everyone. I'm bored at work so I decided to put up this poll for discussion. What Role in a PR game do you think gives you the most stress and incentive to win?

For me it would be prolly the Tank Gunner as the Tunnel Vision of the tank does not making spotting easy and the slower turret rotating speeds makes it hard to do a 180 so when my Driver is screaming at me that he spotted something and I cant see it... I really feel stressed out. Or when we are getting locked.

My second would be.. obviously. Transport Heli Pilot

sl,team member,commander,armour gunner,armour driver, heli pilot, heli gunner, jet pilot, soft skin vehicle driver, soft skin vehicle gunner, Smacktard

Just FYI ... Squad member category covers all kits,classes since all of them have a responsibility to the squad and the team as well.

I want to say Squad Leader, since keeping tabs on all of your SMs and then getting them into an organized fight can make you crazy after a few rounds, but then decided that being a smacktard took much more energy and brainpower.

no doubt about it...commander...

want an early death? go commander....like it..but you have to get ready as much as possible before putting yourself in that role...

get your snack, take a pee break, make a coffee and a bottle of water wouldnt hurt either..

basically your are looking at 2-3 hours where you cant take a break..

SL, mostly because I don't play commander. The more peeps you gotta deal with, the harder it gets.

I would put transport helo pilots way up there, and pretty much any transport vehicle is a bit more stressful because you want to not have everyone pissed at your nubbishness.

By popular neccessity; I would say Squadleading and Commanding are the most stressful jobs; especially if you're good at it.

For me, being a Transport Heli Pilot is the most stressful job:

You have to let your team know where you are, and where you're in-bound to, you have to ask the team to report any AA sightings so you know where to avoid, you have to tell people to stop firing the guns, you have to spam BAIL OUT on patchy terrain to the guy going "no i gun 4 u", You have to anticipate AA sightings as the team rarely inform you - As a result you have to make drop offs 50 meters away from the passenger's destination, to which they refuse to get out to.

And most of that has to be done via typing, whilst trying not to crash.

God save all you fellow pilots

Now im a good commander and my record so far in .7 has been 5:3:1 and im proud of that, but being SL is hard because you have 5 guys depending on your orders, and if anything goes wrong, they get back at you and they lose your respect.

I may be a clan leader and a good leader in general, i just cant SL, i can be a fire team leader, but i just cannot be SL because its too damn stressful

Easily commander, it's like being an SL with people who really don't want to listen to you, and unless you've proven yourself many, many times they won't.

SLing, is great fun as long as you're a good SL, if you can't show that you can control the squad, and do so in an effective manner, then you've lost respect, and people will just do their own thing, w/ commanding, you can't really prove yourself unless you pull off some amazing strategic feet (which i did on daqing oil fields earlier), but even the very next round was a disaster, and i was forced to resign/leave out of frustration.
