Anyways, you had to play the mission to proceed, and you inevitably had to fight like 3 walkers and pull them all down. Just you. I have no idea where my wingmen were, but apparently I was carrying Rogue Squadron in its entirety. Watch out Imperial pilots, John is here! And the aggravating thing is to get the best times and medals and fancy upgrades and all, you had to replay ALL the missions (of course) to get the secrets and best stuff for later use. So inevitably there was one Saturday where I just sat down and started playing walker missions over and over again, to get those best times, in order to never need to play some of them again (rescuing Madine was fun, though...)
Why am I telling you this? Well, there's been tournaments where I've seen people make the wrong call on objectives "because they just played Solar Corona 3 times already." You have to go into each game as fresh as you can, with a fresh perspective. I've won or lost games on objective choice when people look past the Most Wanted and instead choose my Hyperspace Assault instead. They just had a "bad" Most Wanted game, and they don't want to repeat the mistakes, so that's out. Which I personally appreciate. Each game is a new walker/player. How do you take em down?

I've played against Nathan, I've flown against Eric, I've.... been at the same conventions as JJ (Listen, I haven't fought EVERYONE), and the important thing to remember is that everyone is mortal. People DO make mistakes, and you can't go into games just expecting to lose because of your opponent. End of the day, it's still a fun game of Armada with your space bros, right? Don't treat it as anything different than the dozens or hundreds of games you've already played and it'll work out fine for you. I'd love to claim that some of these guys aren't any different than any other opponent, but if you go in terrified and expecting to lose, you'll end up losing for sure. Don't give them the game from the start. Fly casual.
