@starfox it's not just LSM, I've met the same type of thing on Eldar. But it's more common on LSM, simply due to the greater numbers. Even if it's the same proportion of people being clueless, you'll just meet more of them on LSM. Agreed on JPAs being Squad Leads, and it's the same with Swooping Hawk. I don't mind leading squads, but if I'm playing SH, I ditch that fast because as you say, I'm just going to take that buff away from my squad - and with no benefit to me either. I too really want to see Squad Leaders be useful in that role, or limit the random nature of it. I try to educate people on how to promote someone else, but I've yet to see anyone pay attention to it. There is just no consequence for Squad Leaders who don't fill the role. I guess you could try and votekick them, but that's way too harsh, even if enough people understood and agreed with you.
