  1. Tiger Platoon

    Great group that's been around forever.
  2. Will v10 ruin Squad?

    I enforce my solid copy on you, henceforth, you shall now be doomed to an eternity of horrible immersive military gaming! Avast ye! Bwhahaha
  3. Squad lead

    Don't worry if you feel like you suck as a squad leader. Keep going and you're doing a lot of good because players have a leader they can follow. Most players do not care to take on squad leader or want to have a break from the responsibility. Just taking squad leader is a good thing because there is always a need for them. As long as you enjoy it, there is no reason to stop. And with practice you get better. And when you get better, you enjoy it more.
  4. Will v10 ruin Squad?

    People play this game for realism, and a rush mechanic just doesn't feel authentic. It's going to improve the realistic atmosphere of the game. So it will ruin the game for those who do not like an immersive experience.
  5. November 2017 Recap

    This all sounds great! I love the changes regarding prone-diving and the aim time with sprinting. The more immersive this game gets, the better! Also, the Rush Meta change seems good. While I always expected it and half the time would have my squad prepare for it so it doesn't affect us, I think this will make for much better gameplay focused on logistics and base building.
  6. Are you a good shot?

    Ahaha, I didn't even know this was a mechanic! That must be why I have such great aim. I always move slow to scan my surroundings properly and conserve stamina unless I need to cross a street or flank quickly. I'm usually around 75% stamina. This is a very good tip to know, and I didn't even know it was affecting my aim! Thank you. There really are so many factors that can affect your aim from game to game and computer to computer. Sometimes it is very hard to find out what exactly is making someone's aim poor.
  7. Way to train?

    You should join a few groups to see how their training is. Clans usually just get together, and MILSIM units usually have training but they are very simulating of a military environment which doesn't translate completely into the game. You can also try SquadOps. Good training comes down to a good instructor who has a lot of experience and knows where to draw the line between what works in game and doesn't. That will be hard to find though. Your best bet is to find a group you like and over time, playing together makes you into a better team. That's half of training right there. Consistently playing together.
  8. Are you a good shot?

    A rework of shooting mechanics because someone can't shoot? Really?
  9. Are you a good shot?

    You need to spend a lot of time training at the shooting range. You don't want to take too much time to aim and shoot because you will always have some deviation and can still miss. However, you need to know what are the most rounds you can get on your target while being the most accurate. If you really want to improve your shooting, spend more time at the range than you are in servers. That may not sound like fun, but that is the only way you will get better. You can also look into your mouse settings, in detail. Click here and look at this mouse guide. This will go over every single thing you didn't even know about your mouse. You need to make sure your basic aiming tool is perfect for use. Once you are set, do some Russian mouse training. Those guys are hardcore. Click here for the website.
  10. Only on small maps should FOB location be decreased. I've heard many FOB locations be called bad, but I can see the advantages and disadvantages in all of them. Some provide immediate reinforcements to an objective area, Others provide multiple spawn points around an objective area Others provide a backup spawn in case the front line falls Others provide a rear insertion area Some are placed because the convoy team comes under fire and the only good place to set a FOB was their area. Why set a FOB in this situation? Imagine your entire team hasn't had a FOB for 20 minutes and you're desperately trying to get some spawn point up somewhere at least. I really haven't seen a bad FOB. Unless you're actually in the squad that places the FOB, you are not qualified to say if it was a bad FOB. You don't know the circumstances and mindset of the squad leader who is placing it. And unless you're the commander of a team who is keeping track of each squad's situation, you won't know what a bad FOB is. And since we don't have commanders in-game, we really can't claim something as a bad FOB. However, if I could agree on FOB distance being shrunk it would be on the tiniest of maps.
  11. FOB Mechanics Too Harsh

    Logi trucks will always be abandoned on the field. It's up to the team that operates at a higher level to take care of them. This is all fine by me because I can expect the enemy to perform poorly and use this to my advantage. An infantry squad will not be running logistics because people don't want to run logistics in general. Sometimes I can find a person or two or I might have time myself to run them, but in general, a small dedicated logistics team will be a huge asset to the team. I love running a small logistics team every now and then, ever since my Project Reality days.
  12. Do mortars suck?

    I'll use some math myself. You've just called 75% of the player base worst than mediocre. Having 15 kills after a round is pretty good for most players. You've also admitted you'd rather fight against your own team when they're losing, even though you seem to have the arithmetically correct solutions to winning the game. I think you need to start calculating how you can improve your teamwork skills.
  13. Release: Alpha Version 9.6

    These are awesome updates! I mean, even a small thing like a rifleman being able to build a fighting position is great and realistic!
  14. June 2017 Monthly Recap

    I love the SPG animation. I never seen this level of detail in any game.
  15. AKs are inaccurate? Are you kidding me? I will pixel headshot people with the ones on Al Basrah. BUT.... That AK74SU, that one is definitely all over the place. I can't seem to hit anything with it and hate going HAT. But I have never had any issues with accuracy on the other AKs. I love playing Insurgent and taking out entire squads with them. This is from me never using the scoped AK. I can't speak for that weapon. This is based on my 200+ hours and 100+ of those hours being on Al Basrah alone.
