Default Alpha, Gamma and Omega; How do you choose?

Im curious as to what levels of game (A/G/O) people generally play. Also, how do you choose it, missions, you choose etc.

We usually play either Rules of Engagement, or a mission rolled with dice. (of course, some battles are simple pitched battles, if we feel lazy or busy)

If we play ROE, we use the special rules given there.
Otherwise for determining level/Special rules we usually have two ways:
Roll a single D6. 1=Alpha level, 2-5= Gamma level, 6=Omega level.
Other way is to roll D6 for each of the "more common" rules. (Deep strike, Infiltrate, Random Game length, Dusk&Dawn, Escalation, some times Concealment.) If 4+ is rolled, that rule applies.

So, how do you decide, and what do you play?

In the rulebook I think it just says roll a d6: 1-2 Alpha, 3-4 Beta, 5-6 Gamma.

That's correct. To be honest I think that's the best way - keep everything random so it's as difficult as possible for people to tailor.....

I never really play much, and whenever I do I just end up playing 'kill everything'

I have made bases for ROE, though, and would like to play it a bit more. The rules look really fun.

me and my buds usually play Gamma (alpha isn't enough and sometimes omega is too much) and do the d6 for mission.

I usually play gamma, or else roll for it. Sometimes people want something a BIT random but want at least gamma or at most gamma. In that case 123-gamma, 456 omega; or 123 alpha, 456 gamma.
