Planetside2 can be an awkward beast for the leader of a small squad, especially when you consider that you are a 12 man drop in a battle containing potentially hundreds of individuals on each side. With the introduction of a Lattice system on Indar funneling players into predictable locations many people have loudly complained that there is nothing for their small squads and outfits to accomplish.
My character in Planetside 2 is PirateCat, and I play most often as a medic and regularly as a squad leader for MoX fighting for the Terran Republic on the Miller Server. A veteran outfit from Planetside 1 containing individuals from across the globe who are united by a desire to work together well as a unit fighting away from the zerg and defeating the enemy through superior training, tactics and cunning. We have developed a number of strategies to allow us, as a small outfit to not only survive, but thrive in an environment where numerical superiority is often considered the only way to win.
