I mostly play Heros. But rarely do I choose to be the Hero when given the option. Mostly cause it's like having a bounty on your head and my teammates are off scurrying around like I would myself normally. But even more so on occasions I notice that I rarely choose to be the Hero when I'm not MI6. I don't know if it's because you get the extra proxys or some other reason, but it's always how I seem to react. I don't really care for the AK-47, and the Masterton does just fine(so I will choose to then, but again, rarely), but I'm not so great at defending a position by myself unless it has only one entrance.
So I guess what I'm asking is; do you do this too, and if so, or not, why? How well can you defend for yourself if you're not in a party of friends, and do you have the same MI6 bias that I do?
