  1. BE the CHANGE that you WANT to see in SQUAD

    +1 Logi Truck I always do logi runs when the FOB really could use it. More often than not I see a super FOB holding its ground and/or shooting mortars, and no one is doing the logi runs. I go and make at least 2 runs. And people tend to do FOBs and not place repare station. Then I need to get out of my APC, get the freaking logi myself and make it happen so we can be effective with that APC. Most people just want to waste CPs to build .50 cals that they aren't even going to use. Medic And my experience as being a medic isn't so bad as others say it is. I have a bag full of healing potions. I get to kill a lot of people and heal myself later. And I also revive tons of people. This talk about the medic being forced to stay behind and not do anything is bs, to a point. This will only happen in 2 situations: 1, your squad is not being able to advance while under heavy fire, so you have to stay behind; you're not Rambo to kill everybody by yourself; have patience; 2 maybe you're not that good, so you have to stay behind because you can't get killed again and again. Shovel This is something else that wasn't mentioned... If I'm on squad 2 and as I'm passing by a FOB I see SL 3 putting shit in the groud to be dug up, I'm gonna stop what I'm doing and dig that up. He might not be my SL and therefore I don't owe him anything, but he is in my team and I need to make sure my team has the best chance at winning. Getting those assets up and running as soon as possible are imperative.
  2. Awesome! And G29 version of this would be cool as well. I'd love to drive transport and logi trucks using a steering wheel.
  3. Mortars FTW

    At some point I trained with mortar. Learning how much deviation it has the further you shoot, mainly because marks in the map and distance aren't accurate. So you need someone to tell you where it hit so you can adjust it. And the goal of that training was to know by heart how much to tweak. Knowing that kinda of stuff is useful, but............... We have a freaking calculator. It hits dead on. Kinda ruins the old school fun, but that way it more effective. I just pick up the phone, type my location and the target's location and yell 3 times so the other mortar guy can shoot. And I tell him to increase 20 degrees to hit 50m closer or vice-versa. And if I remember correctly, if the target is way further from the mortar, then 20 degrees would would make 100m. On that note, what are your findings on this?
  4. Battlefield 3 Project Reality mod

    Back in the day there was a custom server that removed the minimap, spotting and increased drastically the damage. It was so fun, but the server didn't last one month. It was so freaking easy to play. You'd find casual players running around and getting themselves killed all the time. And there wasn't enough hardcore+ gamers. SQUAD folks won't go back to BF3 just for the vehicles or else that server back in the day would have worked.
  5. What position do you play the most? Why?

    I like everything this game has to offer. All classes and all vehicles. Sometimes I'm tired of playing to kill lots of guys, so I just join a server to do transport or logi runs. I find it fun. If I were to play Eurotruck, that wouldn't be so fun. Driving trucks in SQUAD is fun to me because it matters. Other people are counting on me. But the class I play the most is SL because I know what needs to be done and someone has got to do it. If I'm not leading an entire squad because it is so tiresome, I have a 2 or 3 men squad locked up so we can go do some S&D.
  6. SQUAD - The more, the worse

    I respect your opinion, but I have a different opinion on that, as I previously stated somewhere in this post. Not only I don't like playing there - even though I play on that server once in three months - SLs are rude. They don't understand tactics and they will mob up against you if you're thinking outside the box and doing what it needs to be done. Also regular players tend to bitch about stuff intead of taking the mater into their own hands. Their lack of effort and effective action that provides a poor experience for everybody becomes your responsability for some reason.
  7. SQUAD - The more, the worse

    Amazing! Good for you. Sadly, I can't play European servers. It gets so much laggy. I already play (and kick ass) on US servers that have up to 220 ping. That's my limit. If I get 170, then things get intense if you know what I mean!
  8. SQUAD - The more, the worse

    I agree with everything you said. Except that together, these statements, they get conflicted. You can't be the change you want if you have disobediente players. When players follow my orders, we kick ass. When they don't, we lose big time. Some people aren't SQUAD material. Giving them orders triggers that feeling of micromanaging and they just won't do shit. You kick them, they don't even complain. They just start another squad, all the other kicked players join that squad and they go on about their mediocre gameplay doing team deathmatch and ending the match with a super negative KD without accomplishing anything such as providing support, destroying vehicles, getting intel and sharing with the team, etc. Luckly I had a few somewhat cool matches these days. The trick? Well, I was lucky enough for the random servers I chose to have the same amount of casual players on both teams, so it ended up being a balanced experience.
  9. SQUAD - The more, the worse

    Don't take it too hard, buddy... It is what it is. You're only making it worse. Also, sinse you failed to see, let me point out the question - that was far from being vague - before you spin the story even further. What servers do you play and what time and day?
  10. SQUAD - The more, the worse

    Thanks for the invite @Axel. Perhaps you guys from Europe have it better. I'm from Brazil and brazilian are the worst of all. So I have to conted with US servers. @MultiSquid Sound observation and advice. I appreciate it. Although I join only servers from big clans. Even that isn't cutting it. Unless these clans are doing a lot of private events that I don't know about. Anyway, I think I'm just gonna take some time off. See if in a couple of months this new community gets better, since the game must have gotten attention from newcomers after the PS release.
  11. SQUAD - The more, the worse

    Here's a little bit of what happened today. This was the pinnacle of the night for me. I have never seen so many dumb people playing together. For real, I'm astonished. My squad was in charge of holding the flank while the rest of the team got the middle flag. Every SL was talking about doing a FOB near there. Nobody of their squads picks up the logi. Eventually, one of my guys took it. I said to him: just drive wherever those guys are going. They are still figuring out where to place the radio. After a long conversation on the SL frequency - with 2 squads already inside Police Station -, they tell me to place the radio and build a FOB where I was - the flank - and not where they were. Well, great. No biggy. I've been around the block so I know how to make that work. 50. Cal Bunker in the road, ammo for the boys inside the village with stairs for them to pick over the wall and sandbag walls to block the access to us from anyone who might come from the south. I positioned ARs and snipers in the north hill watching over the open field, road and whatnot; I was operating the .50 cal and the other boys were covering the mid. There was no way in hell anyone would get passed us. Also, that was a safe haven. Everybody was spawning there and moving south to go back to Police Station. It was a slaughter. Everything that moved got shot until it wasn't moving anymore. Now... Here's when the shit meter breaks. It was said in the SL frequency that the logi can no longer leave main base because there was mines all over the place. As if you couldn't go there and dig it up. So, no more logi runs, they figured. Then every SL agreed to dig down my radio - which were requested by them - because it was on a bad location and they wanted a new one eve closer to the police station. That would make it about 100m closer. I warn them about that. Next thing you know, we have no more respawn, they lose Police Station and all other flags just right after that and now we can hear in the SL frequency people saying: Don't take any flags and kill yourselves. Let's end this quickly. Well... Bravo, folks. Bravo!
  12. SQUAD - The more, the worse

    This right here portrays exactly what I'm talking about. I make statements about my experience and ask a question. The reaction? People either say to not complain or that this doesn't exist. It is the same behaviour that I see in the battlefield. The stinking shit is happening right in front of your eyes and people either enjoy the shit or they pretend the shit doesn't exist.
  13. There was a time that 80% of the matches in any server was awesome. Of course, sometimes there was one server that one team was just steamrolling the other one. So you would just change servers and everything went back to normal. I noticed that when Post Scriptum launched its first and second weekend test, it was amazing. It felt just like when I first started playing SQUAD, but with an extra spice called WWII plus those huge explosion sounds, stukas and whatnot. All matches were amazing playerbase wise. When the third weekend test came along, it all faded. Only noobs playing. I've witnessed things that would never happen, happening. Then I went back to SQUAD. I found myself feeling some weird vibe. Dynamics were different. Now 50% of the servers were OK. Yesterday I had not so much luck. Tried playing in 4 servers. Just 1 was OK. Today, not a single server that I - as usually - randomly picked, was ok. Every freacking server teams are getting steamrolled. And there isn't even been applied some good tatics. Just a FOB near enemies and they all fall like dominos. Most of the times there isn't even suppressing and flanking maneuvers. It's just head on killing spree. SQUAD University must have their plates full. Also, if you don't agree with me at least on some level, please tell me: what servers do you play and what time and day? Even a friend of mine that has a way lower standard bar noticed today how crazy this is getting.
  14. Who was the coolest SL you've had?

    Don't remember the name. It happened just the one time. The guy played like I do. He knew how to give orders, he talked only the necessary and he was willing to go the extra mile to do what the rest of the team wasn't doing. Always, it played out beautifuly because our squad had many players in the same mindset. And locker room talk? Yes. Of course. But only localy or just a few times over the radio when nothing else was happening.
  15. Thanks, @fuzzhead!
