Chill conversation. Overall, he asked me what I learned and I told him a pretty long, detailed list of what I learned and did. He wasn't upset because in his words, "Compared to the two other bozos you sound genuine. You must've gotten bad instructors" and wants to send me back now. -_- I just don't feel ready to go back to ARC just yet. I wanna go back to my unit and get the leadership experience before going back, but now my unit wants to send me back asap. Le sigh Already had the apartment notified for the 30 day notice as well as my incoming apartment notified. Oh well
Brighter news, discovered my time in service was jacked up. Getting 0 years TIS, actually had four years TIS that counts from Reserve -> Active. Xmas is gonna rock
That's shitty to hear man. Awesome that your units CC has your back like that.
Here's a bunny thing to help cheer you up:
Whoops, the Squadron Commander isn't though. I get to report to his office and talk to him why I failed ARC with my BOLC Commander present. This is gonna suck.
Also I'm following this guide to the strategy layer.
I'm happy with figuring out the tactical part without an indepth guide, just some basic rules is good enough.
You know why I'm so in to this one tactical turn based game?
The mission start music.
This music, by itself, addicted me to this game.
I hear this and its XCOM TIEM.
Everything else is just serving the music.
I will become good enough for this music.
A certification process does help add a certain legitimacy to the sport in the eyes of the public and makes it easier for people to get insurance for their clubs and find venues to train and fight in. It's not a bad idea, but the way USFCA seems to have gone about it is definitely NOT how to do it.
On a lighter note, this is a pretty neat video of the 2012 Olympic Epee final:
It's fun watching the guy on the left figure out (albeit too late) what he needed to do to start running the match back.
