Let me start this topic with a big, heartfelt thank you to everyone who made JA2 1.13 possible. I have been playing this game on and off for 24 years, and my recent return to it has been great.

Once upon a time, in a galaxy far away, I decided to start another game of JA2. Of course, doing things entirely the same way is boring... so I enabled Drassen counter atack and expert level.  Oh, and also I figured I would give up on my usual selection of capable, dependable mercs and instead go for the idiot squad (Razor, Haywire, Fidel, psycho IMP, Hamous, Maddog).

I must say, that crew fits me incredibly well as a player, because I am sloppy, lazy,and prone to guzzling beer  :d  If left alone for a staggering ten minutes, most of these guys are raiding the liquor store, puffing on cigars, and generally making a nuisance of themselves. I mean, I am all for Dutch courage, but Haywire and Razor take it to the next level.

So far, the idiot squad has had some great successes. Taking Drassen took about ten days, including fighting that gigantic wave for which I had to hide every last merc in the toilets. After that, the idiots took Cambria and Estoni with only minimal damage. The critters in the mine were next to fall. Fidel was an absolute hero, planting bombs with no regard for his own life, and Hamous showed his mettle by going into melee combat with one of the bugs. Bravery or stupidity, what a fine line eh? He got shot in the head once, and lost five points of wisdom. Not that anyone noticed.

I followed this up with Alma and the western SAM, and the idiots are now tossing a coin between Chitzena or Grumm. Might even hang around San Mona for a bit, just to raise morale even further. Or maybe just to nick Kingpin's money, it has been ages since I had to fight off his assassins. If you have suggestions, I'd be happy to hear them happy
