Land tactics consisted of Lelouch taking out the floor a few dozen times (hyperbole) before they got the fucking idea that that's what he tends to do.
Kallen was a cemented moron since episode 9. WHAT? MY MOM LOVES ME?! NO WAY.
Suzaku wall-ran and drop kicked a fucking machine gun with a delay of under a second. If anything, season 2 will EXPLAIN his shit.
Lelouch isn't Murphy's bitch now, he actually is losing. He never fucking lost realistically in season 1 with the exception of Cornellia and the ending. Everything else was a total fucking flawless victory until the Lancelot showed up, and even then sometimes that did jack and shit. People are just upset that in Season 2, Lelouch doesn't have a mind that's unrealistically good.
Every consider Lelouch isn't supposed to always be getting somewhere with his plans, might make a mistake here or there, and might even totally lose and fuck up before the series ends?
You're assuming he's supposed to win, and we don't know that.
