A lot of people are robust in different ways, Nobody can ever be truly robust in all things.

In leadership, I'd say Benjamin Werry.

In terms of combat, Graham Maclagan.

I myself have to agree with this, because everyone is robust in some way or another.

Take me, for instance: I am known to do any job pretty well, but when it comes to fighting, I hardly get kills... I'm lucky to even hit shit.

In that case, I'm the most robust at screaming my head off at everyone else.

Example B: The only form of combat I excel in is one on one CQC, I never could handle multiple opponents.

But yeah. For the average, non-demigod person, we tend to specialise, and be "Robust" in one or two areas. Then you've got absolute monsters like Jones, but I digress.

I suggest we have multiple fields of robustness.

Eg: Most robust leader

Most robust medic/Doctor

Most robust Engineer, etc.

I consider my "Give me you war cry as you drop marines!"(War cry=1 marine screaming) order as SL a robust signature for SL. Guaranteed whoever in my squad will make it, no war cries they'll end up dead somehow.

In pure combat robustness this is pretty good.
Everett Dryfus (CodeGunned) - As the only surviving marine, he was sent to the Thunderdome to face the 12 remaining aliens in 1v1 combat. He killed ALL of them. His final battle, against an Elder Predator, resulted in his COMPLETE VICTORY. His place in the hall of Victory EARNED for all time. We even threw an Ancient Crusher at him and he killed it...

Define robust.
I am THE best engineering player when dealing with any atmos, SM, or tcomms system issue. I can build and have built each of those 3 systems from scratch, AND have multiple xeno kills from weaponizing the existing systems (Not comms... YET). Hell, I may be the only person on the server to set up my own SM containment, generate power, then kill xenos with it.

But when it comes to combat with more conventional weaponry, I'm marginal at best.

One you gotta make the bomb, that's atmos. 2, it'll breach the ship. 3, you aren't using the comms SYSTEM itself. Radios don't even go through comms.
I can mute people, but I haven't come up with a way to kill a xeno using ONLY comms... yet.

You could space them out the port to the side, technically that would be using comms to kill them. Sorta. Not really.

Find a way to edit the NTSL of the xeno hivemind and make a script that sends so many messages so quickly that it crashes their game. Then kill the xeno whilst they're SSD

Fucking Boris Karamer. Watched him solo a hive too many times.

Suro Ruro is pretty good too, either as the best RO or a damn fine Spec.
Garth Pawolski, usually helpful. If nothing else, I generally refuse to die in situations where I most certainly should have.
