For the record, no military commander would put the top two in the same team. The top two would be paired with the bottom two, that way they could help the weaker flyers and improve the unit as a whole. None of this solo improvement and rewards for selfish behavior. That crap would have stopped so quickly RD wouldn't have known what hit her. The only way to have an 'unbeatable team' is to have the whole team be unbeatable, not just have a few great flyers and a bunch of mediocre ones. You're only as strong as your weakest link.
