Applicable to: TeamTypes


Aggressive entry in TeamTypes pertains to initiating an attack when a threat posing enemy comes in range. Suicide entry in TeamTypes pertains to response to an attack. These can be set to yes/no. Depending on the current team mission being executed and the combination of these two entries, the behavior differs. For some team missions, these two flags don't have any relevance. Variation are seen in the team missions where movement is involved. Typically, attack missions are not affected by Aggressive entry and the team does not initiate attack while on the move to its target when the threat-posing enemy comes in range. In move missions, Aggressive=yes favors attacking when the threat-posing enemy comes in range which results in the team losing its current mission, and when the team resumes it executes the next mission in its script. Suicide=yes tries to suppress the retaliation when attacked in favor of completing the current mission.
