  1. Nothing you just explained would indicate a definite hacker. I've not once experienced any 100% indication that someone was cheating in the entire time I've been playing Squad and I currently have 164 hours.... In my opinion you're seeing people who are communicating with teammates, using good tactics, playing carefully, using sounds to their advantage, etc. I mean for crying out loud. Clearing a building is a tactic, you watch the corners, you communicate. Once you get to know the map and you know where people are most likely to be, you know where you should be aiming as soon as you enter a structure. As far as shooting into the vegetation... I mean come on man. There are numerous things at play there. You have multiple squads and people spotting enemies. Someone could have seen someone run into the vegetation and requested fire suppression. Who knows. I'm not saying there aren't any cheaters playing the game, I really don't know and I'm sure some people have figured out how to cheat or alter graphics or create hacks. But honestly if you think you've been playing with cheaters every single game that you've gotten into recently then I gotta say you're being awfully imaginative and paranoid.
  2. The server I play at usually has a lot of good team work and experienced players. Vehicles also put to very good use. Of course occasionally there may be a game with more new players or even **** wads then experienced serious players but that isn't the usual. I typically have a very good time. Not sure what the deal is with you. Maybe the problem is with you and not the game? Maybe your squad was bad? Who knows.
  3. Muzzle flashes happen incredibly fast, sometimes it's just hard to see them. Especially in the day time. When you have something firing full auto it's much easier to spot the flash since it's sustained fire. It would be much easier to see the flash from the side of the weapon as opposed to behind it as well. The flash could be multiple feet long so it would be easier to spot from the side.
  4. Can't go wrong with the 19. My 19 was the first pistol I bought almost a decade ago and I'll never, ever get rid of it. I love CZ as well, will be picking one up soon. Hopefully a SP01. Just picked up a TLR1 for my 19 since I've been carrying my 43 more since it's getting warmer out. In the cold my Bravo Concealment OWB will conceal my 19 with the TLR1 perfectly. I can pull it off now too with some looser fitting shirts while its warm but for the most part the 19 is on HD duty unless I'm heading far from home or into the city.
  5. I've had no issues with the new queue system and I think it's GREAT! Before, constsntly refreshing and trying to join servers could sometimes cause my game to freeze on a black screen requiring a restart. I'd much rather wait in the queue. We're talking about 70-80 man servers here, waiting for a few people to leave shouldn't take very long. Even when I'm #6 in queue I've never waited more then 5 minutes. Thank you devs!
  6. I use a nice MSI GS60 gaming laptop that's a few years old but still very good. I use it mainly as a desktop with the ability to travel with it if need be. So 95% of the time it's on my desk connected with a monitor and keyboard/mouse. Monitor is a 24" BenQ connected with mini display port to DVI active adapter in order to run 120hz. Have to do this because the laptop doesn't have a DVI port and HDMI can't run more then 60hz, which I can't stand. Even when not gaming, 60hz looks like shit to me now a days. - Specs - Intel i7 4710 2.5ghz 12gb ddr3 NVidia GTX 860m 128gb m.2 SSD 1Tb 7200rpm HDD This gets me around 35-65 fps on Squad with medium/low settings at 1080p. Other new games run better sometimes, like Battlefield 1 I get 50-70fps on medium/high settings at 1080p with resolution scaled down 10%. Razer Taipan ambidextrous mouse which has been fantastic, I know Razer can be hit or miss Corsair K65 LUX mechanical keyboard with cherry mx red switches. My first mechanical keyboard and I love this thing. I'm going to get an even nicer board soon that I will design through one of the custom mechanical brands online. Pricey but you can customize everything and they look more professional. The Corsair ones are pretty cool though, the lighting and macros especially are great. For instance I have a profile just for Squad that turns on when I launch the game. I've lit up only the keys used for Squad (movement orange, voice chat appropriate color, white for text chat and scoreboard, etc) and I have a macro set to Capslock that enables me to sprint without using any keys so I can rest my hands. Squad profile on the board pictured below. I really can't recommend getting a nice keyboard enough. But make sure it's mechanical switches! Go for the legit Cherry MX switches too, not imitators. Red and Green are the most popular. That's not the color of the outside of the key or rhe lights by the way, it's just the name of the different type of switch. it's only colored underneath the key on the actual switch. They have different feels. Read about them, it's pretty cool. Having a nice mechanical keyboard is so helpful though, very smooth and precise.
  7. You can with the Heavy AT insurgent class using the tandem round. Actually had one of my most enjoyable rounds in Squad lately on Saturday when I took out 2 full Humvees with a Tandem round from ridiculously far away on Al Bashar. (2 separate instances, of course)
  8. For one, I said at the beginning and end of that section that I do not care about seeing the sniper role in this game. The point I made, simply as a random thought, was regarding the entire reason why the devs don't want a sniper role. Because people will use it to kill whore for KD. The idea of having that role unable to show kills would POSSIBLY eliminate that problem. That's the idea. Again, it was just a random thought. I couldn't care less if we don't get a sniper role.
  9. Right, field testing wouldn't be on a large scale. It would also take a long time to replace the existing M9s in use. Plus it wouldn't be field testing. Field testing is done before the contract is made, not after. After the contract is made they need to get the production increased and ship theguns to the government in multiple shipments. The replacement will probably be slow and take a while. But I agree, it would be cool. I'm more of a fan of the 320 then I am of any m9 or 92 variant. Just like the Marines testing the M27 IAR. It's on a limited basis and being used by one experimental battalion. Adding something that was being field tested, on a full scale, it wouldn't make much sense....
  10. Excuse me? Care to elaborate?
  11. I don't care about the sniper aspect but just an interesting thought here... If there was a sniper class, there could be a counter measure that made the player using it and everyone else unable to see the kill or score count for that role, even at the end of the game. could even change the way the scoring is done with it. Instead of seeing a +10 points per kill, something else could be done. But like I said, I don't really care. And I can't help but laugh when I read things like "P90". Wrong game man... Also I wouldn't expect to see the Sig P320 as the contract was only agreed upon very recently. Could be a couple years before troops even see them. I would just like to see authentic Russian red dot optics on the AK variants for the Russian side.
  12. That was fricken awesome! Watched the whole thing. Very nice. I am loving everything I see about this game. Realistic weapons and accessories, damage dealt, looting system, sound, tactics, everything. Can't wait to get in on this game. I am gonna try to have my new pc together by mid summer. Would love to play this maxed out. I'm going for a damn nice system too, probably won't be less then $1800.
  13. Yeah seriously hah! My kills are usually fairly high because I try to play a mix of safe and smart with crazy and suicidal. Usually leads to lots of kills when you pick the right tactic with the squad. But the past couple days I hit damn near 30 kills on multiple occasions. I've noticed some people not really moving after being shot once. One fellow basically just stayed put and looked around after my first round hit him from 100m away and then my 2nd or 3rd took him down. Poor guy!
  14. New map is awesome! My FPS wasn't lower when I played it either. Runs great. Only saw one half of the map for the most part though as there wasn't much teamwork going on so we just sat a defended 2 points. excellent map design though from what I saw!
  15. So now when is the open beta supposed to be?
