Initially I was aiming for a Group that has already experience with Carriers. But I see no reason to set a limit here. The fact, that you bothered getting a JHDC in the first place shows, that you are more than interested. Consider yourself in.
Well, we got the Optionals just in time on Khitomer Vortex, BUT we got them. Yeah, it was fun. Especially using RaidCall again for quick coordination / information. That certainly saved us in Khitomer, when one of the Guards was down and the Probes came dangerously close to the Vortex.
