  1. Hey guys, I have over 2K hours in the game now, witnessed previous sales on Steam and Humble Bundle discounts. It brings in a massive influx of newer players. We spend time teaching them the basics and hope they stick around for the game to progress and increase the playerbase. It's becoming more noticeable about the quality of the game diminishing in the recent months. I'm not talking about bugs, they come and go with hotfixes. Here's a list of problem experienced and I asked around other clans/servers about they are seeing too... Problems: 1/ Regulars don't want to Squad Lead, new guys then have to step up. Sometimes it's their 1st or 2nd game. 2/ Team Killing - accidents happen. However for server admins it would be a lot easier to see which weapon is doing the TKing. 3/ Main base camping - some maps have flags so damn close to the main bases, it's impossible to ask people to stop base raping. Yet some of these maps are huge and actually have a LOT of play space behind the main bases. Suggestions: 1/ Introduce a rank system, at least 50 hours in the game unlocks a rank which in turn allows that player to be a squad leader. 2/ Show the admin either pistol/rifle/nade/RPG/IED/Mine/Mortar/Emplacement/Vehicle. This will help us very quickly to understand who's more than likely intentionally TKing. Also have the safe zone near main base slightly bigger and not allow people to put IEDs on vehicles in main base or the possibility of anyone firing from within the safe zone/main bases. This will stop people TKing and destroying all of their own vehicles inside their main base. 3/ Move main bases further away from the 1st flags please. Stop the mines on the doorsteps of main bases too. Some maps have uneven terrain which almost forces people to use the roads just outside the main base, this is easy target.
  2. Queens Fighting Force (QFF) Hi Everyone, I just wish to announce a new clan that has been created by my partner Little Jenny. It's called Queens Fighting Force and you might have seen us around a fair bit in different servers. Queens Fighting Force currently has 50+ members. We have a server called (QFF) Queens Fighting Force ENG. We also have a training server under the custom browser which is always on Jensen's range We utilize Steam for our events (friendly matches, CCFN, Fun Friday etc) in the calendar and posting updates in both our steam group and our discord announcement channel. Very organised and relaxed environment. QFF requirements: • Aged 18+ • 150+ hours in SQUAD • English speaking • Fairly active in SQUAD (at least a couple of times a week ideally 10 hours a week). We play other games too, but our core game is SQUAD. • CCFN/Friendly matches are purely optional, great way to fight against the best of the best in the community to improve skill. • Fairly mature, but able to have a laugh too. • All our members are whitelisted on the server if you're active within our community. • Full members have permissions to see Team kills so they can report it to our admin team. We're looking for great medics, squad leaders and regular all round players. You will find that we're very relaxed and open clan, semi-casual not milsim. If you are interested or just want to say hi then our discord channel is over here... https://discord.gg/kvT7zty See you in battle! Rules Community Rules: Our rules is a list you must follow and be aware of at all times. If you break one of these rules, depending on the severity anything from a Warning to a Ban will occur. 1. Be respectful and civil toward your fellow players, This includes no excessively offensive language deemed as socially un-acceptable, trolling, racism or hate speeches directed towards any other players in the game. You must respect new players and now be overly aggressive towards others. Depending on the situation and severity this will get you anywhere from a warning to a ban. 2. No hacking or exploiting the game, You must not use any hacks which modify the game towards yours or others advantages, or if you know of any exploits you must not use these in game. Hacking will always get you a permanent ban. Exploiting will get you a ban if you have done the exploit intentionally. You will also be reported onto community ban list. 3. No deliberate team-killing, You must not deliberately kill your team mates, or use any weaponry or vehicle in an offensive manner with the intention of killing the other player or provoking them into returning fire on you. You must apologise for accidental team-kills. Team-killing depending on the situation will result in a kick or a ban, we may also warn you depending on the situation, you may also be reported on the community ban list. An intentional kill witnessed will result in a permanent and instant ban. 4. As Squad Leader your squad must make a reasonable effort to work as a team and contribute towards the objectives. We encourage players to work as a team at all times, you and your squad must make a reasonable attempt to work as a team and contribute to the victory of the game. We won’t ban you if you are bad at the game and are just not getting to the correct objectives or you are not always working at your best, but we will ban you If you are sat in the corner of the map doing nothing or you purposely make an effort to not contribute. We will usually give you a warning, failure to comply with this will result in a kick of the squad leader. 5. All Squad Leaders must have a working Microphone and be able to speak English Please do not go squad leader if you cannot speak English or use your microphone. You will be kicked from the game if you haven’t got a microphone and are leading a squad, please make a reasonable effort to communicate to other squads when they ask. 6. No advertising or spam. We understand that you may wish to promote your clan, but our server is not the right place to do this, we recommend posting your clan information on the Squad forums. Spamming also refers to not spamming the microphone aka Singing or repeating annoying words etc, also no spamming the team or global chat. 7. No offensive squad names. Your squad name must be named appropriately and not be offensive towards others. If you fail to follow this we will ask you to change the squad name next round, if you are the only person in the squad we will ask you to leave and remake the squad. If you repeatedly name your squad offensively you will get banned. 8. No meta gaming/ghosting. This means you are not allowed to switch team to find enemy objectives or information and report them back to your team, or switch back teams and use this information to succeed. If we find you doing any of this, you and anyone working with you will get banned. 9. No impersonations. Please do not impersonate a staff members or QFF Member, doing this will get you a warning, kick or ban! 10. No player or vehicle blocking. Please do not stand in doorways or alleyways with the intention to block players from moving, this also applies to vehicles, doing this will get you a kick. Repeated offences will result in a ban. 11. Be respectful to new players and help them out! If you see a new player, please be respectful and kind to them and help them out to the best of your ability. 12. Seeding the QFF server. We will ask both teams to not destroy each others FOBs and to just fight over 1 point on a map until the server populates. When there are enough players on the server to fight a normal round (approximately 30 players), we will broadcast when all flags and FOBs are in play, going back to normal play. We thank those that help to seed with us, but certain individuals that choose to just sit in a vehicle and camp the FOB or refuse to cooperate may be asked to leave as they are being more disruptive than helpful. You will find this is standard practice when it comes to seeding a server. We will normally seed with infantry only maps, but if there are instanes with vehicles being available, please just use them as a taxi. 13. Locked Squads. We like to encourage teamwork and do not wish to have have multiple locked squads for just your friends. 2 man BTR squads or 3 man mortar teams is acceptable, just remember to name your squads with this. We will ask you to unlock the squad if we see no valid reason for it. Any clans visiting our servers can lock squads if you have almost a full squad. If it's just 2-4 of you then please keep the squads unlocked, thank you. 14. English speaking server. We have always said that Squad Leaders are to have a microphone and speak English, but we have seen a few instances where foreigners form squads and go do their own thing. This is a team based game and we have the right to ask if these groups do not communicate or play the objectives, they will be warned or kicked if no response. 15. Communities/Clans. There have been some instances where people from other clans or communities believe they are exempt from the rules. You must adhere to them just the same as a non clan player. If we see multiple members team killing, disrupting and trolling from the same group, we retain the right to remove all members so not to further disrupt our servers. If you feel this to be unfair, you might want to speak to your members and advise them that their actions can and will affect the entire clan being removed. 16. Squad Leaders kicking players. The squad leader has the full right to kick anyone from their squad, however we would like you to be polite and inform that person that you're making space for a friend. Give the person a heads-up so they don't lose their kit whilst in the middle of a fight. Remember QFF admins have a duty to be sure that our servers are not being disrupted, as it is our server we are all monitoring it. 17. Don't be a douche! If none of the above doesn't grasp your attention, hopefully this will. Only your own actions can result in being removed from our server. If there are multiple offenders from the same clan, a mass ban might be required to easily control the issue in a quicker manner. This applies to our game server(s) and our discord voice/chat rooms. Enjoy!
  3. Active admins are needed on that server. All my clan members can see when TKs happen so they can report it to an admin (which we have a lot of). Everything you listed is what we stop happening. We don't allow locked squads (only for 3 man mortar or 2 man BTR) and we encourage people to play the objectives. As for TKing, at main base it's a permanent ban.
  4. Every game, every day, there are people playing that are new to the game and having to step up as SL. I literally just played a game and the SL didn't have a mic, he actually named the squad NO MIC. I said it's the server of the rules to have a mic as SL. He then handed it to a guy that has 0.4 hours in the game, then he handed it to a 3rd guy, then they handed to me lol. This happens every day and almost every other round.
  5. I do this, but sometimes profiles are hidden.
  6. 1st edited video I've made

    Sooooooooo.... who would like to see my very 1st edited video? It has an intro and outro Hope you like. I've always been too lazy to edit videos and normally upload raw content! Let me know what you think.... listen to the start, so funny https://www.twitch.tv/videos/181955484
  7. How I Squad Lead (hints & tips)

    No worries, glad I can help. Hopefully some tips will help those wanting to give it a go
  8. How I Squad Lead (hints & tips)

    How I squad lead, hints and tips for anyone that would like to learn to SL.... https://www.twitch.tv/videos/181718000 Add to this if you wish to help people to become Squad Leaders. More veterans need to step up too and set the example.
  9. Need an account on here to see the historical numbers... http://steamspy.com/app/393380 All we're pointing out here is there is definitely a pattern. A very noticeable change in the caliber of players since a good couple of months. Also there was a Humble Bundle sale not long ago.
  10. Same on EU servers, lots of names we've not seen before. We get to know our regulars and in actual fact I said this the other day on discord... I don't know any of the SL's on my team. Checked their hours, all of them were new.
  11. Again the numbers don't show who is veteran and who is noob. The numbers cannot support your dispute regarding my claim about influx of noobs. The only numbers to show that are to see how many people now own SQUAD on steam. Just yesterday in 1 of my servers, there was a German guy 16 hours in game and made a squad with his friends. He wanted to give SL to me, I said no it's fine, let him learn it. I gave him guidance because I could see he was struggling. Anyway I made a video a couple of days ago to cover this... https://www.twitch.tv/videos/181718000
  12. Admittedly I stopped reading the walls of text It is definitely noticeable with the lower caliber of players in the game. Lots more day 1 noobs are stepping up to be SL because the veterans aren't doing it or aren't playing as much. Evidently so during those free weekenders as it can be a stressful time and impossible to get a smooth round.
  13. Hi, OP here... You need to factor in something which you have missed. The graph is showing total amount of players. It doesn't differentiate between veteran and new players. The veterans can be taking a break and being replaced by the newer influx of players.
  14. How I Squad Lead (hints & tips)

    Thank you. Hope it is of some use to people stepping up as Squad Leader. That means an entire squad has to defend those mortars the entire round, instead of playing objectives. That's where I say they would be more useful and do more damage with guns in their hands... going on defense or going on attack, not babysitting mortars. The rounds are won by capturing the flags, not the kills (they just help)
  15. A server admin command to demoteplayerid would be good to remove the SLs that are new, don't know they became SL or simply don't have a mic. It's better than having to kick from server to remove a rogue SL.
  16. There's only 1 page of servers which are actually full or near to full. This is the numbers playing SQUAD tonight on a Saturday evening. This isn't normal.
  17. i7 8700k new cpu

    Probably very good for streaming/recording and gaming on the same PC instead of having to have a dedicated PC with a capture card. It can save money that way if you're into that.
  18. QFF invite you to their server

    Welcome to the SQUAD forums, I see this is your first post. I checked the logs and can see this was a 28 day ban, you were asked by an admin to speak English and kept speaking Turkish. This was over 5 MONTHS AGO. Maybe connect to the server before appealing something that you've obviously not tested. 2017-02-09 21:04:26 This thread is for recruitment, join our discord for anyone appealing their bans.
  19. Hi everyone, QFF would like to invite you to our server! Backstory: Queens Fighting Force (QFF) was created by Jenny on 1st of January with technical assistance from Odin. I was asleep in bed, woke up only to be told, we've made a clan and so I had no choice lol. A little history about the QFF founders... I've played SQUAD since New Years Eve 2015 and I convinced Jenny to move from Battlefield 4 into SQUAD. It took 2 months of convincing her, but when she actually gave the game a proper go, she started playing it more than I did! Surprisingly there are a fair few girl gamers that I've come across! This game has the right balance of fun/realism. Not too arcade like COD/BF and not too mil sim like Arma. It's spot on. We decided to join ZXD clan, as we were looking for an active UK/EU based clan. We were there for a while, Jenny helped a lot with recruitment and I helped with training/squad leading. Some members split from ZXD and formed another clan. Then after a while I decided to go solo again, but Jenny stayed and continued to help them grow. After 2-3 months, Jenny wasn't playing much with me in squad, so we both decided to join WAR clan together, as they were close friends with ZXD. Once again we both helped the clan to revive itself, get a server back up and assist with admin roles. Jenny kept in contact with most and then QFF was formed. Just to point out, when we chose to leave it was a graceful exit without any drama or anything negative being said. It was simply a decision that felt right. Just over 1 month now and QFF clan has grown from 2 to 40 members. We're a mixed bunch of casual gamers and play CCFN for those that like to be competitive. It is very challenging creating a clan from nothing and administrating everything. SQUAD community is rather small and the same faces are popping up. I see a couple of threads appearing from certain individuals that have a vendetta against me. You will find that my stance on trolling / online bullying is rather on point. If you take it upon yourself to join our discord, shouting, screaming, trolling, pm'ing everyone, posting rubbish, joining the game server and posting rubbish channel via text, silly squad names, intentionally TK'ing and purely there to provoke others. I'm afraid that you are just being antagonising and trying publicly to get a rise from us. It will not work. We are here to play a game after work and enjoy it. You are making this game look extremely childish and thus it will negatively impact the growth of the game. To start out with, the game had lots of friendly and helpful people willing to work together and get the noobs up to scratch, this is becoming rather rare. TDLR: You will find we have many regulars to the server. We greet them each day, individuals and other clans. The server is doing great and it's full from 5pm GMT until very late hours! It's doing really well and our clan members are playing together. The hard work is paid off by having the same people visiting us and complimenting how active we are with lots of admins and how low the ping is on the server. Thank you! So without further ado, I wish to invite you to the QFF server! You can see how we handle team killers, the trolls and make it a better place for the community. I must point the rules can be found on our clan thread (which I thanked Portland from ZXD for allowing us to copy his text! They're really thorough and perfect to cover all aspects of the game servers). A fair few of them are listed in the red server text in game too so you will see them popping up. Come and say hi, come and enjoy the game! Name of the server is "Queens Fighting Force (QFF) ENG"
  20. Queens Fighting Force (QFF) - UK/EU/USA

    NEW TO SQUAD? Come to our servers "Queens Fighting Force ENG", we have 2 servers up. We've noticed a lot of new guys to the game recently, we have definitely noticed a change in the overall game play. People getting lost, friendly fire, blowing up friendly vehicles and so many more really epic fails. QFF clan have done this before with giving the new guys a helping hand when getting to grips with the game, so we're going to be setting up multiple squads called "Noob Training" or "New to Squad?" Come on in and all you have to do is simply listen to orders. When you join a squad mention you are new. We've made an announcement on our discord for all of our members to help you out. Basic training: - Following the compass - Checking map for where friendlies are, friendly mines and where to go. - Do not group up to all die to 1 RPG or nade. - Don't use the last 2 spawns on the green rally point. If unsure where to spawn then ask. - Grenades - these cause a lot of team kills. - Building - left click builds, right click removes objects. Our discord https://discord.gg/kvT7zty

  23. Queens Fighting Force (QFF) - UK/EU/USA

    Queens Fighting Force (QFF) Our servers... (QFF) Queens Fighting Force (ENGLISH) #1 (QFF) Queens Fighting Force (ENGLISH) #2 Our servers are based in the north of France, yet stay full all night long until the next morning. We have many people complimenting the ping, even guys in the US have complimented them in the past. We have a great team of admins and you will see on our discord that we log and provide evidence of all bans that take place for people breaching the rules. Very active and fair team of admins help you guys to play the game without being disrupted! QFF Discord: https://discord.gg/CuTmRMa We are recruiting and on the lookout for dedicated SQUAD gamers and teamplayers. We utilise Steam for our events (friendly matches, CCFN, Fun Friday etc) in the calendar and posting updates in both our steam group and our discord announcement channel. Very organised and relaxed environment. QFF requirements: • Aged 18+ • 150+ hours in SQUAD • English speaking • Fairly active in SQUAD (at least a couple of times a week ideally 10 hours a week). We play other games too, but our core game is SQUAD. • CCFN/Friendly matches are purely optional, great way to fight against the best of the best in the community to improve skill. • Fairly mature, but able to have a laugh too. • All our members are whitelisted on the server if you're active within our community. • Full members have permissions to see Team kills so they can report it to our admin team. We also started off a new feature called QFF_Cadets on discord. Those that are aspiring to become a QFF member but don't quite have the hours in game yet. They play on our discord and on our servers until they've met the requirement. Come and join in. See you there p.s. This thread isn't the place to appeal a ban, it's done on our discord. We will more than likely have screenshots of what you did, so bring the best story you can make up to get it lifted lol. We are very fair, but don't think we're soft on intentional TK'ing.
  24. The option of being able to steal enemy vehicles will massively stop people from just driving them like taxi's and ditching them on the front lines or opposite side of the map. Of course this could also bring a massive balance issue if somehow the enemy managed to steal all your vehicles and your team had none, yet the opposition had all of theirs and yours! That would be brutal.
