So how come there was a vote for overall unit commander and xo without my being part of it? I thought that was supposed to happen after the next game.
And now I don't even get to CHOSE WHICH FRIGGIN UNITS I'm going to fight with?!
I have major problems with this. Not saying I have a problem with who got chosen, (even though their playstyle is SIGNIFICANTLY different than mine) just extremely unhappy with how the decision got made. As for the other bit: there is no chance... ZERO that I will accept being told what units to use arbitrarily without my having any say in it.
(and in character:)
Lt. Colonel Meiyo Saganami
I have several issues I would like to discuss with you and your staff. There is a trend among the other mercenary companies of making decisions without my input. Most recently, the selection of Overall Unit Commander.
It was my understanding that the meeting to make this decision was originally scheduled to be held at the Eyrie with ALL unit commanders present.
Instead, I find that it was held without my knowledge at an earlier time and at a location yet to be disclosed to me and resulted in the Steiner and Capellan commanders being selected as overall Unit Commander and XO respectively of the mixed mercenary command. This change in command structure without any prior notification to or input from my unit (if it actually occurred) is in direct breach of our contract. Also, I have grave reservations about these traditional enemies of my people, who both, I might add, have already shown a preference for excluding my unit from decisions and not supporting my men on the battlefield, being given the power to control my unit's troop movements.
In addition, their first action as overall command, before, I might add, I received ANY notification from your office about the change in chain of command confirming such (which I still have not received through channels or verbally from any of your representatives) has been to dictate what units I am permitted to commit to the training operation in direct violation of our current contract with you which specifies that the Eagle's Tears have autonomy in choice of units insofar as transport allows for any operation.
I must therefore request that your office provide clarification on this situation and further state that if this change in command under these circumstances (there being no time pressure for the meeting to be held without my unit's participation) is actually the case, shall be under formal protest by my unit.
Furthermore, I must state that if my unit is not permitted to use the personnel and equipment which in my best judgement (not that of another mercenary company commander of questionable judgement and motives) is the correct unit mix for a situation, I will be forced to declare you in breach of contract and contact the mercenary bonding and review board for remedial action.
Please understand that I and my unit have no desire to take such a step and hope that these issues can be resolved quickly and amicably so that we may continue to assist you in your efforts to protect the people of this planet.
Commander Eagle's Tears
