Any SL who actually communicates with Command and calls CAS is a favorite in my book.

Best would be Kesserline, though.

Aestel Rose: great SL, but 80% of the time I roll bravo medic or decide to give some command role a try when she gets Charlie lead.
:heart: :heart: I don't think most command players would agree. I tend to chew them out regularly(especially when they miss OBs). But I actually like Wanda's SL, but normally she only runs private.

Apple is another good SL who can actually communicate, which is the most IMPORTANT thing to have in a fellow SL.

Can confirm that you once bitched at me when i fired an OB, which bear in mind, did have the requested coordinates typed in. You're not fun to deal with as someone in command, but your competency in the field can't be denied.

Any SL that actually communicates with their squad is usually good, Kesserline is probably my favourite.
I play "Mudder Plantagenet" and that's it, no fancy quotes or anything.

In no particular order:

Mark Kesserline, Uriel Turner, Vanechka Penkina (RIP), Caryl Bernhaben, Tal Ravis

There are more SLs who are just as effective as the above, but are more abrasive or have other failings, and in general wind up nowhere near as fun to play with or cooperate with. I value an SL who can balance all three of enjoyment of others, overall effectiveness, and some standard of RP far more than the 'tryhard' types who focus only on winning.

I play Alicia Parker, Sara Khansari, and a couple of others.

The fact that you communicate with command at all means that you already meet the minimum standards for an adequate SL. Chewing them out IMO boosts your efficacy.

I really enjoy playing as part of a squad under Park, Echo or Jester. They're pretty different in how they approach things and all three are a bunch of fun to interact with.

...Although I only get to play with Echo when I sneak away and secretly play a Delta marine. (Cough)

Haha. I love it when SLs try to chew me out as an SO. They end up demoted, flagged and arrested when they get shipside for medical treatment and with no overwatch functions.

Dont do that.

My favourite though is Kesserline.

Some honorable mentions though;

Park So-Hee is a sustainable SL and pretty coordinated.
Uriel Turner only had the chance once to have him as SL but I’ll say he does a great job.
Vanechka Penkina was also one of the first SLs i actually had when i was new and they always did good calls and mobilised the squad pretty well.
Tal Ravis is also a badass squad leader appart from leading a squad tactically he also puts some effort in first hand marine RP which makes it great fun.

From a Command perspective, Kesserline, So-Hee, and Turner are some of the better names to see.

Most of the whitelisted COs are also excellent squad leaders too (if they play the role at all to begin with), even if I'm not so hot on their COing.

Wanda Fisher: promoted to aSL as PFC once, she did an amazing job and we came back from almost a total squad wipe to crush the aliens.

Awww considering I've only aSL'd a few times I really appreciate that. Maybe I oughta try SL for real.

Anywho, Rose/Park/Jester are my favorite SLs. They are always competent and fun to play with! Great at communicating and leading Charlie through hell!

While I will agree that when most SLs try to chew out command staff, it ends up being either annoyingly inaccurate or painfully adorable, if an SL is chewing out command with valid points and is doing so via RP... then it's time to get that sweet ass in gear (and off the plush chair if need be) and start commanding.

As for the rest of the honorable mentions, agreed all around.
