Alright, last Attack on Titan question for the night: does the series ever address why they had like 5 of their most valuable assets just hang out on spying missions in Paradis without any further military support, unsurprisingly leading to the loss of several of them

it was, i believe, meant to be a covert ops thing where they were supposed to A)Infiltrate Paradis and find out what military technology they had/what the political situation was (hence why one of Bigfoot's first appearances was him jacking a 3DMG unit, and B)Weakening their defences and generally sabotaging their society to make an actual military invasion easier (hence why the first episode of the series is Brock Lesnar & Colossus Atlas destroying the outer walls).

mind you, that's just what I suspect/have been lead to believe, because I don't think the rationale for their mission has actually been brought up or adressed

This sorta makes sense but makes Marley seem kinda incompetent to me (shocking, I know), you'd think they would imbed a network of other informants so that their Titan trump cards wouldn't have to take on all the risk.

When the King left he basically threatened them with "hey i've got like 100 titans in these walls if you gently caress with us i'll unleash them all!" Which is why they probably didn't really mess with them/have a set up for this kind of thing until now.

No they can only log out at the terminal because logging out via killing yourself is disabled because time acceleration has been activated even though it isn't actually on. This whole system/game is designed by morons.
