  1. 40vs40 upgrade 50vs50 v.10 ?

    There are no secret 100 player club servers for Squad Black Elite Trooper Extended edition owners if that's what you mean. The servers you see are the servers everyone else sees. The 80 player cap is for all servers, licensed or not and can only be nudged up with OWI's involvement. There's been a test or two with 100 players within the past year IIRC and while it ran ok-ish for clients (players) and people with beastly rigs probably didn't have an issue with it, the 100 players + vehicles to go along with them are/were very heavy on the server side of things. The 80 player servers are all already close to the best ones available and they are just about able to handle the current population. That's what I remember at least, but it's been a while. As usual, my info is about as reliable as the back of a cereal box. And yeah, I'd imagine the extra 20 players is a big deal because of the amount of things both the clients and servers have to handle grow exponentially with added players because everyone and everything has to be handled one way or the other. Wonder why there are about 2 other games in existance with over 64 players in a FPS?
  2. No Mainstream Youtubers Playing Squad

    I've personally seen about half a dozen big twitch streamers, small channels like Lirik and Shroud included playing Squad in the past month. Double the amount in the past 6 months when another bunch of them got around to it in the summertime. And some big youtube channels have made videos on Squad, but as Squad isn't a title that attracts the big masses and isn't good for clickbaiting or doing short "omg here's top 10 pubg fails" type of content they usually leave it at that one. For how niche of a game Squad is, it has got a pretty good amount of publicity from youtubers/streamers, just because they enjoy the game as it is and they play it not because of the revenue but the game itself. And for that exact reason some other channels won't ever touch it. Also, some of those top dog youtubers / streamers usually work mainly on contracts on the games they play = they're paid promotions to play and make like a 20 video series or something. And that's why they do those on AAA games rather than indies who can't pay the same kind of bucks for them.

  4. Official Squad Forum Alert Level

    Can we have the official change to "OMG" @Nate
  5. APC's crew guide for Dummies

    Only now saw this, holy smokes it's awesome! Absolutely fantastic piece of information
  6. Can't start the game - Tried everything

    If it crashes on intro screen, make sure you are not running any recording software, especially Plays.tv before running the game
  7. Squad Leader Recommendation Thread

    D'aww. Ok, we can lock the thread now. Jk, I'll start new shoutouts myself, Player name: <eUK>Nibbler Player Nationality: Sounds like a brit, smells like a brit, tastes like a brit, is probably a brit Date & time: Dawn of time Map and side: Many maps, many sides Act of heroism or good conduct: On top of being a solid Squad Leader in the game, his behavior day in and day out is exemplary from anyone in an online community and what makes him stand out from the rest. Nibbler always stays calm and friendly and I can' t recall a single time he would've mugged someone off in his team, even when things have gone to absolute shit. His leadership exudes teamwork spirit and he provides a friendly, but effective Squad environment for old friends and new players alike. A true gentleman in any and every situation, which is an unfortunate rarity in this day and age. Doesn't matter if it's Tuesday afternoon or middle of the night on Friday, but if you find yourself in Nibbler's Squad - you know you're in good hands.
  8. Squad Leader Recommendation Thread

    What say you we revive this thread or slap a new one out there? Plenty of good SLs out there to be recognized!
  9. Couple quick things to try, no guarenteed fix from me though. Steam --> squad --> properties --> local files --> verify integrity Start Squad in Windowed mode , Steam --> squad --> properties --> general --> set launch options --> type "-windowed" And one that I'd try first, this has seemed to work out for a couple people but it's been a while since those posts so who knows... Set your windows scaling (size of text, icons etc.) to the default 100%, depending on your Windows version but at least on 7 & 8 it's through Control panel --> Appearance & personalization --> display --> make text and other items larger or smaller --> smaller (100%, default) With this fix also make sure your windows taskbar is at the default bottom position. Also, don't spam the same post in multiple places, it's generally in poor taste. Edit; oops I even replied in the wrong section myself
  10. Hello fellas!

    Hey, welcome to the Squad community! If you haven't looked at any guides or tips & tricks to get into Squad, I'd definitely recommend looking up some basic ones with a quick search to save yourself some growing pains. Quite a few mechanics in Squad that might not be initially obvious to a new player. If you're feeling lazy, here's a (not so) quick guide written by some magnificently handsome individual to introduce some of the basic concepts. Otherwise, just get in there and play a lot, it gets better every session as you always learn something new. The enjoyment is very dependant on the people you play with so if you can't seem to find a decent Squad Leader / squad in the server you're playing on then definitely switch and try to find another one. A lot of the more experienced players tend to play on prime time evening's so there's your best chance for great games. Any of the top servers that have a good ping for you should be fine, they won't be at the top unless they're actively moderated and favored by the community so should be easy choices there. You don't need to join a "guild" (just "clans or communities" in this game) straight away, the game is very enjoyable played on your own. In my opinion you're better off just learning the ropes first, see if you get some great games on a server and start frequenting that, you'll find many others doing the same and after playing for a few weeks in the same place you'll start recognizing names and making battle buddies with little effort. While doing so you'll inevitably bump into some players with [Clan tags] and if you think they're good people and fun to play with then inquire if there is a way to join them! Or.. if you just want to get straight into a clan and jump in the deep end, there' s definitely that as a choice and I'd start the looking here: http://forums.joinsquad.com/forum/22-teams-clans/
  11. Preformance loss after new update?

    Known issue
  12. Release after v10? Maybe

    Does it really matter when they slap a Beta title on it or a Full release? It doesn't speed up the things any more or really change it for any of us already in the game. Slapping those titles on is really useful for only people who aren't in Squad yet to give them an idea where we're at. But yes, a rough roadmap would be cool to get a hunch of where we're at. IMO we're starting to get pretty close to a Beta stage with most of the wanted features in after V10 and V11 (content patch, stuff that doesn't make it into v10 and quality of life shiz). If we assume British forces is in one of those and say V11 is end of Q1 2018, all we're missing at that point is revamps to medic, logistics, MBT, helos and commander and that's about it for big features. 90% done and call it a beta by summer? why not.
  13. Last night

    Glad you were met with a good first impression after putting in the effort to not come in clueless Just give it a little time and you'll get even more out of it, welcome to the community!
  14. Nice, thanks for making the survey, was fun to glance quickly how people feel about certain aspects. I was dissapointed at the lack of OPFL hate, I'm selling tickets to the bandwagon still
