If I had obediently followed my flight leader in every situation, my first DID pilot wouldn't still be alive. When the enemies attack (and they attack often), I only think of saving my pilot. Most of the time that involves abandoning the formation and leaving the AI pilots to manage on their own.

I must be doing something right, because I have over 20 hours and my pilot is the only one left after all the bloody purges. biggrin
