It's been only seven months since I bought JA2 but there are a lot of folks here who are playing it ever since it came out.Anyway, my first-ever team consisted of:

1. Razor (IMP merc, obviously I didn't know at that time that there's another Razor in game)
2. Buzz
3. Raven
4. Razor (MERC)
5. Steroid
6) MD

That was my main attacking squad.The second squad had Mad Dog, Ira, Gumpy, Shank and Dynamo but I only used them for malitia training purposes because they seemed worthless at that time.

IMP - Duh. Smile
Nails - Needed someone I recognized from DG.
Grizzly - Wanted his Desert Eagle but later he grew on me.
Danny - Needed a doctor with great skill in MED.

When I attacked C:13 Drassen hell was loose. I played on Novice and Tons of Guns but when I came up on the child-labor-factory roof I saw 21(!) enemies. And this was only on day 2. Nails died and we other suffered great injuries.

After the battle I attacked D:13 Drassen Mine and there I lost my IMP for saving without AP left and started over. The game was much, much harder then the two first.

First team:
1)IMP

2)Grizzly: needed a weapons man and a strong guy. Now he's one of my favorites.

3) Bull: like his bio said, good to have a workhorse early on. He grew on me as well.

4) Barry: lockpick skill and decent mechanic early on.

5) Igor: Figured if he's half as good as his Uncle Ivan, he ought to be pretty good in his own right.
Nice to see I was right.

6) Fox: good Medic and nice lady to have around. Another favorite.

My first team was:
-IMP
-Hitman
-Buns (i still think that as far as statistics and price are concerned, she is THE best merc)
-Steroid

I also terminated my third game (novice) with 18 mercs but it wasn't funny, i mean i had nearly one merc against one soldier in every sector!

Oh gee.....
This is going back about 5 years....
Let me see.
I am fairly sure it was as follows:

IMP - with stealth and night ops i think?

Grizzly - cus i liked his dossier and had a desert eagle :rifle:

Fox - needed someone to be a medic...oh yeah shes hot too, and good with both hands Surprised

Then after taking drassen and the mine i got some cash and added some professionalism in Shadow.
Cus he kinda grew on me from the original JA2 demo mission.

I'm using steroid right now. It's going to be my imp and steroid only... maybe. He's the best!

At first I had Imp, Igor, Steroid, Fox and they all clashed with each other.

Grizzly
Grunty
Buns
Wolf
Meltdown
Stephen
Ira
Dimitri
Miguel and his pal
Shank
Dynamo
Ivan
Scope

I finished the game with those characters ... I was a huge advocate of overwhelming firepower over quality. I figure if you distribute enough lead per square inch, you are bound to hit something. :naughty:

Hudson, do NOT get rid of Barry. Train him up and he's still cheap while he's damn good with explosives and mechanical stuff. He's a good line-grunt too.

I used a money cheat and hired the five best mercs. When I got to Grumm my IMP was fighting next to Gus. They both had M24s. I noticed that Gus got two shots per turn and my IMP only got one shot.
I wondered why and then I saw that Gus was getting 24 APs but my IMP only got 18 APs. What were APs? How could my IMP get 24 APs?

So I started learning how to play the game properly

My first team was not exactly an all-star formation.

IMP
Meltdown
Malice
Barry
Igor (~ my one good choice)
Bull
Steroid
Ira (~ doesn't really count I suppose, being free)

To be honest I really have no idea what I must have been drinking to come up with THAT lineup. Very Happy Personally, I think my biggest mistake was Barry; there is just no need for an explosives guy that good so early in the game. I was definitely still on my Jagged Alliance "Must-hire-Fidel-first-day" mentality.

First SAM site was an absolute treat, let me tell you. Razz Nobody outright died, but some of my guys spent a looooong time there getting healed afterwards, lol. Learned from that first day mistake, that's for sure. Bring in Ice, Grunty, Blood, etc.!

OO good question! Been a long time though... think it might have been something like this:
Blood
Bull
Grizzly
IMP
to start with and then I think I brought in Grunty cause I was still short on cash and needed an extra body plus he is pretty good. Then I think I saved enough for Shadow and Ice.
I'm sure I got rid of most of the lower mercs after the money started flowing it. Or they were regulated to teaching duty and muling stuff around from the airport. But eventually I'm sure I ended up with:
IMP
Gus
Scully
Magic
Shadow
Thor - yeah found out he was a real badass once he got some exp and his marksmanship went up.

Wow, was this a long time ago!!!

Let me think, first off, my IMP sucked!! LOL He was ambi/MA .. not bad I guess, right? Well his strength was low like 60 (I had no idea what this would mean). He had 85 mrkmshp and stats around 60-70 with everything, explosives, med, mech, etc.

My team:

Grizzly
Steroid
Buns
Buzz
Wolf

I think this was the first team I was able to assemble. I had no idea about training militia, repairing items (guns were jamming on me like mad I recall Razz ) or combining items.

It was great fun, and over the course of the next several run thru's JA2 really began to shine (I didnt play the demo). I was hooked, no doubt, as the depth of the game continued to impress me.

Then when I discovered this board my interest skyrocketed as I discovered so many new things!!

Thanks to everyone at BP I am a JA2 addict!

My first team was based on who was cheap and available. I took Bull, Grizzly, MD and Barry, along with my IMP (NO, maybe stealth).

I still do, they make a damn good team.

I also get:

Ira (free, so why not, she learns well)
Maddog (for the one-liners)
Dynamo (handy as a cargo carrier on the chopper)
Shank (same as above, plus Estoni as a chopper base)
Dimitri, Carlos, Miguel (pack-horses)

I get Lynx, Wolf and Scope to act as a scout team while the others back them up. The capable guys act as a rifle/assault team while the others are my artillery/fire support.

Hadn't played DG before-in fact, hadn't played many RPGs at all. My first team was way back when JA2 first came out;

IMP-"Slash". Pretty useless, had high marksmanship, but everything else was "well-rounded", 'cos I had no idea that things like strength could be improved quite easily or that high wisdom would be needed to improve other stats. A "jack of all trades and master of none" would be a fair description.

Buns-probably my best choice-at least she could hit something.

Hitman-OK, I suppose-seem to remember him never having enough APs to really make any impact.

Blood-someone I hire regularly now. He's a great early stage merc (plus comes in useful for the prize fights), but at the time he was wasted-didn't really know how to play the game. I'd never use stealth or crouch/crawl, I'd fight during daylight and didn't repair guns. Consequently all my mercs took a lot of hits-and Blood, due to him usually being point because of his stats, took more than most.

Fidel-same as Blood but without the plus points. Seem to remember him blowing himself up a few times.

Steroid-I might have got him too-made me laugh a bit, but he got shot a lot too.

In fact, Fidel and Steroid died fairly quickly.

I had no idea when I started the game-I managed to capture Drassen, but didn't locate Skyrider or the SAM site. I don't think I even bothered training militia in Drassen. Consequently, I ended up walking all the way to Chitzena, Steroid got killed along the way. I tried taking the town, but with my sophisticated tactics I found the bad guys far too tough and retreated to San Mona.

San Mona was great-no bad guys, and I found Tony's shop. Problem was I didn't know Tony was in it and had no idea how to get past Hans. In the end I blew a hole in the side wall, but Fidel killed himself in the process. From there it was on to Cambria where my first encounter was with T-Rex. He made short work of Blood and Hitman, leaving the redshirts only my IMP and Buns. They didn't last long....

Those were the days, eh? Still, it's some testimony to JA2 that I could get hooked on a game that I was so useless at. Very Happy

I'm another crusty old-timer that's had it since release...

Sadly my memory isn't as good as some. Razz

Mostly used the DG veterans (my wife was tickled when Hamous made his first appearance in my game - we had many bitter fights in DG) Hitman, Gus, Malice.

I recall being disappointed that Beth, Turtle and... dangit, the Barney sound alike weren't in it. I'm a huge advocate of cheap mercs with lotsa training.

Ticked about Mouse too - but she wasn't in the cheap squad.

Well I first played the demo so that would have to be Ivan, Gasket, Vicki, Shadow, Dr. Q and some other person. When I got the full game, it was my IMP, Buns, Hitman, Blood(those three because the game manual suggested it), and MD. Of course Ira soon joined.
