Default Would you be willing to do stuff you consider boring every 25 rounds

There are positions which some people (not all) consider boring but help the team greatly, like commander or manning moratrs.

Would you be willing to command every 25th round (or 26th round if somebody is commanding your 25th) or man mortars if nobody is doing it to improve the overall game?

I've only manned mortars once, but it one of the coolest things I've done. It was pretty uneventful, but I wouldn't call it boring. Once we were responding to mortar requests, I felt like I was part of a major teamwork cycle. It was one of those, "Hey, squad 3 is getting hammered and I have a large tool of destruction in my hands!"

Squad Leader: "Guys, just shut up and start shooting!"

There is still commanding

Commanding can be pretty intense if you have all SLs on comms and actually following orders. The majority of rounds/servers though most people just dont care about the CO and make his position pointless.

This question really cant be answered because it really depends on the map your doing and how your team is, and why every 25th round? why not every 7th? or something smaller?

I think because there would be quite a lot of guys applying for commander while some haven't been it yet, this way the cycle is a little more balanced.

25 rounds is A LOT. So yes i would be delighted. Could even be every 3rd round..

I don't think manning mortars is boring. Only if no one calls out targets that is..

Commander..i wouldn't say it's boring. it's hard. that's why not many people play it.

Logistics/Build has got to be the most "boring" job. Or trans. Any stuff like that.

I apparently like all the boring jobs.... I love putting up FOBs and defenses, and I setup my teams mortars all the time.

Considering I already do these things nearly every round, I think people should be willing to do them more than once every 25 rounds. Teams cannot win without FOBs, and while they can win without mortars, nothing is better for clearing a fixed position than a few proximity rounds. It's called teamwork, without it your team loses in PR.

I'm not too sure I get bored easily in PR, but I do some times, and it's on the maps I A) Lag like hell in or B) I just don't like the map, that's when I get into the Mortars or commanding.

I my experience you do boring jobs quite often. Normaly every two or three rounds, sometimes a couple of rounds in succession... Since I am more the "fight in the first line" guy and not too much into support, mortars (they are fun though), commanding and so on the boring jobs I have to deal with are mainly:

... defending the lonely outpost in the middle of the dessert with no enemy closer than five and a half miles ...

I still remember an incredibly boring round a few weeks ago. Our squad was defending north bunker, our team made no progress on south, I was guarding the front entrance with the LMG and after 60 minutes I put a book on my keyboard and spent the remaining 30 minutes reading occasionally. I was asked once if I fell asleep or something....

No question: Defending areas is one of the most mind-degrading jobs in this game. However, it is important and can be fun if your team is losing flags and you have contact while being prepared and sitting in a fortified position
A squad that is actively using VOIP can be a big blessing in such a situation if you are lucky enough to play with some humorous guys.

This level of commitment is no problem for me and is an enhancing contrast to more challenging situations.
