Would the freelancer agents count as a Standard Evil Organization Squad?

Why does Wyoming have so many tropes and notes that he is apparently weak? If you look at the leaderboards from the prequel bits they show that he was in fact quite high up http://rvb.wikia.com/wiki/Project_Freelancer#Freelancer_Leaderboard Given that the board tracked the top 6 (later 8) it doesn't fit that he was actually weak

We don't know how he got up that high, but his direct combat prowess has been repeatedly shown to be relatively low for a Freelancer. See: An army of him got taken out pretty much by Tucker in direct combat, him being a coward against the Happy/Sad twins in season 10, him doing probably the worst against Tex in season 9.

His equipment was a temporal distortion thing that let him travel back in time. He could use weaponized Save Scumming. I'm guessing when it's working, he's a beast, but when it's not he's screwed.

He was on the leaderboard before he got the equipment. My guess is that he's good at what he does (presumably sniping, stealth, and being a dick) but in a straight fight, he's clearly pretty outmatched.

Yeah, He does seem to be bad at hand to hand (that army of him could have been under the same "clone weakness" as the army of Texas), but given that the other "Top" Freelancers (Besides Florida) approach to stealth was basically to half ass it (The North and South Mission) and that the leaderboard in "Greenish-Blue With Envy" seemed to track the times on the combat trial that Carolina was running, he might be better than we are giving him credit for. Also in the Agent Texas Sparring match not even York stood a chance (Texas Being the Beta A.I. and them not having A.I.) most of his hand to hands have been against people especially noted for being the best hand to hand combatants in the series. I think it might be appropriate to give him an "Overshadowed By Awesome" tropes (perhaps Washington deserves one as well, even Washington seems to think that he was nowhere near the level of Tex/Carolina/York)

Given that he's only shown fighting agents that were above him on the leaderboard at the time, playing "who's the better stealth fighter" with Tex, or losing en masse to the reds and blues, it's possible that he really is a capable fighter who just isn't as good as some of the other top freelancers. As for losing to the reds and blues, he's never shown to be good at coordinating with others, going so far to avoid teamwork as Grif goes to avoid work. How well would you expect thirty independent copies of him to work with each other?

Is 479er confirmed as Recovery Command? The description says so, but the examples operate like she's not confirmed.

Personally, I don't think they're the same person, but I'd like to know if there's official word.

So there's no California then?

Depends on what you're asking.

Is there a Freelancer California that exists in universe? Most likely, since as far as we know only Florida doesn't have a freelancer.

Have they been seen or mentioned at all yet in canon? No.
