I have took the last week of looking over other opinions and evidence, battlemetrics and so forth. and I have come to the following opinions.
Atlas is good at a few things that would be a necessity for HCMD to have some of these are as follows. 1. The ability to maintain their selves in an argument or debate without falling to anger or other issues. I found that under several disagreements with Atlas that each and every time he has been able to maintain himself and never come off as insensitive or disrespectful. 2. Dedication, while atlas sometimes in my opinion shows a complete lack of this attribute its been proven quite a few times that he has some dedication and is willing to go to many lengths for R&D. 3. Leadership; though controversial you have proven in game and especially TeamSpeak the ability to lead other R&D and still contribute, while I have mostly seen this in TeamSpeak I still believe you practice this trait in game too.
The reasons for this will follow; To start in my past in R&D more accurately when I was working along side you I witnessed you openly express your dislikes towards a quota of 1 Training or PT/Mass Test/ Onsite. Now let me just say if you are not able to handle that then you already have 1 major problem especially in a high command field where you will constantly be worked to make the branch a better place. 2. When you were given the temporary position of leader of EOI, I can agree with gordan that you abosolutely did nothing. You made I believe 1 announcement encouraging activity and that's where it ends. 3.In the past before these applications were open you had a SIGNFICANT issue with activity and this can be agreed upon by most command in R&D at the time including your former CDOP. 4. Bias, while you mostly maintain calmness in arguments you still let it impact your opinions on others, ALOT. I do not know if you do this sub consciously or what but you need to fix this ASAP.
For my final opinion (This will not be changed unless ACTIONABLE evidence is provided not just a mob of others stating otherwise)
-Support ( With a twist look below for what I mean)
While in some cases I see atlas to be completely deserving, in other areas I see EXTREMELY large red signs. These being bias and multiple issues in the past relating to activity and capability to get others on and to be an effective command member. As stated already I see many positives such as a unique type of dedication I dont think I have really ever observed before and a drive to change things. I think the biggest issue you have though is most definitely drive. While you are dedicated you lack drive in many areas to complete things you set yourself to do I believe personally that it is due to overworking's since I have seen you kick ass before.
So let me be clear I do not see you fit to shoot straight into high command but I think you should be set to EARCH and show what you can do, then after a few weeks or months you can be given high command.
