I joined halfway into the Zeus mission alongside a few others. When I joined I was confused as to what was going on. What I saw was everyone being clustered together on a small hill either firing or doing nothing as well as it taking a long time before the next step of the plan was executed due to the confusion. Now I will take into a fact that Cobra did indeed aim to get everything sorted and get the mission going, but I cannot overlook the fact that he was hostile towards another player simply because the player was disorientated.
I was Headshot's MG assistant at the time and as usual an assistant would stick with whoever he is assisting. During our push on the right side of the hill Cobra began micromanaging our squad--not that I mind. He gave an order for all units to clear the nearby buildings while the MG team covered them. As Headshot and I began covering the players Cobra ordered me to go as well. I told him that I was Headshot's MG assistant, but then he replied with "I don't f***ing care!". Despite me being Headshot's assistant I didn't want to disobey orders and cause any issues, so I went with the other players. The squad leader then radio-ed the MG team to return to the squad however when Headshot started heading towards them Cobra told him to stay here and cover the squad. Our squad leader ordered Headshot to return a second time, but Cobra told Headshot to stay again. Confused between the two orders given Headshot decided to follow his squad leader's orders and return to the squad. A few minutes later Cobra regrouped with our squad and said to Headshot "You're a f***ing punk, dude" and never spoke to him again during that mission. In the past I've heard players insult one another, but that is because they are either joking around or are trying to get them to stay quiet for a bit so communication can flow smoothly again. However this insult was not a joke nor had any intention to quiet/silence the player for any good reason at all.
Overall I don't mind if Cobra's ban length is reduced and I understand he may have been upset at the time since being a CO can be quite stressful, but I hope he understands that he can't simply be hostile towards other players like that especially when he's in a major role such as being a Commanding Officer.
