All Zetas are encouraged to lead both in-house Zeta squads, and also mixed, open, public squads and platoons.
Open squads and platoons are a crucial way that Zetas can develop their knowledge of the game, improve strategic thinking, and learn to multi-task managing units of troops whilst coordinating on Command Chat with other NC squad & platoon leaders from other outfits.
It’s also a vital tool for helping other new players to learn the ropes, and to experience Planetside 2 as it was meant to be played: at scale, with combined infantry, armour & air power.
No-one forces anyone to lead, but we expect to continue our tradition of being a leading outfit on Briggs, and leadership is fundamental to this.
See the ‘Be Zeta > We Are Zetas‘ page for what to equip with your certs on your character, both for effective play as a squad member, and leader. The Leader of the Month page may also be of interest to you.
