So I just got my first UFO mission (3rd overall) and I went "well now would be a good time to send in the original 4 for a mission"
All were rookies except Vinny who was support, because he was in my first mission (Ryan Davis is also now Chinese, because.....)
I move up and I spot 4 sectoids, and they run off and do two mindmelds (jesus they happen more in my game than in any of the videos I watch) and after a few rounds I had killed the two main melders and get ready to approach the main station, only to forget that the dude who spawns inside has a decent enough gun, AND FUCK BRAD IS DEAD FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU HE IS MY FAVORITE.
I killed him easily the next round (not before I had vinny smoke the area) and finished the mission.... But damnit I killed Brad :(
