Then, its a matter of following the opposed hord over the map from undefended base to undefended base once things start to get a little hot. Worth a try though.

1.  Hordes are not all that safe.  Horde members are flying "heavy" aircraft, that cannot get out of their own way.  Try dogfighting with a couple of thousand pounders under your wings.

2.  I (personally) do not like to be on the defense.  I prefer to attack, and make the OTHER guy defend.  When I do defend, I tend to up from capped fields and get my tail shot off.

3.  I suspect that most horde participants are much like me in that way.  We enjoy playing the base capture game, and therefore spend a lot of time capturing bases.

4.  I see a lot of experten that hang around a few miles away from an enemy base, waiting and hoping for the "baby seals" to fly by on the way to their fun.  If you guys admit it to yourselves, the existence of the strat players--by far the majority IMO--gives you something to do with your time.  If it weren't true, you'd all be off in the DA furballing with each other.

I dont mind the strat part of the game. In fact I enjoy blowing things up with heavy thingies. I'll even do an NOE raid on occasions. I dont enjoy watching folks on all sides up using 40 players and attack bases that are undefended trying to avoid each other. I am sure most base attacks start off with a few players but when jojo and bobo see the dar advantage they immediately head to it. Athough I made comments refering to the furball thing it is more of a lets make them earn it post.

Shubert, what happens if the base you're on the offense against suddenly develops some serious resistance? Do you keep attacking that base or move on to an easier target?

Dude, this is all I do every night I fly in the MA, throwing myself at the horde mercilessly and doing everything I can to stop it, whether its all by myself or with a couple other lunatics who want to club every seal there is in the horde of dweebery.  I've been waiting for this for a long time!  

Btw, it would have to be by nature a nomadic squad, switching around to best fight off whichever side is hordmongering and milking the worst.

Think of a better name too   :aok

I dont know what shubie would do but most will give up and move to easier target... When they do we will follow.

Stang its a movement not a squad.
Anyone have any suggestions on a name?

If shubert is so interested in offense perhaps he could join in. I wouldn't mind flying in a base taking assault if it actually targeted the heart of the enemy numbers :) Just think of the feeling of accomplishment from actually taking a heavily defended base using skill, organization, teamwork and cunning. [edit: I LOVE STRAT GAMES! I WANT GOOD AH STRAT GAMEPLAY! I HAVE MISSED THAT IN THESE GAMES SINCE ABOUT 1997] Of course, the enemy hord would have to be as like minded and well, we know the answer to that one.

Not just constant furballs, but a righteous force of dedicated dweebs determined to change the ways of the horde through extreme prejudice and seal clubbing... I love it!   :D

I would say that the best approach to start would be to set up a "squad" night. It would also be nice to easily identify like-minded players to wing with, somehow. Hard to do the secret handshake over the monitor, don't know how acceptable it would be to modify squad names, etc.
