  1. I see what you're saying, but I still don't agree. I can see some mild form of customization once this game is much further developed to appease some people who want rewards for some reason or another. Any time dedicated towards getting customization to characters is a waste of time (at least right now) because they could be using that time and resources to polish or add other content related to actual game play and mechanics. Besides, who would honestly care if they got face paint or something for winning; you are hardly ever close enough to see any detail on the enemies faces let alone paying attention for details such as that because you are focused on killing them rather than them killing you. The only times anyone would see your face paint or anything of the sort would be the other guy looking at your dead body after you got bested, or your team mates look at your face which by that time everyone has face paint so its not unique.
  2. Sheeple like to get those little achievements just to feel they are getting somewhere in the game, when really this game isn't about little achievements at all. This game isn't for everyone which is why there are so fewer players in it compared to other big titles. Those other titles promote individuality when this game is whats best for the squad and overall coordinated game play. It breaks the mold which is what makes this game so unique. Don't expect any achievements or "things to work for" since they act as only distractions to playing the game the way it's meant to be played. There's no "I" in Squad.
  3. AK74 vs M4/16 Recoil

    I like the idea but it's not representing what the Russian Army actually uses. The standard infantryman doesn't have any red dot on the AK-74's, just iron sights. Special forces have red dots and scopes on their rifles however.
  4. INTERNATIONAL SQUAD KNOCKOUT TOURNAMENT

    Well for the match we played it was played on both NA and EU servers so we got a round where we had excellent ping and they had a round with excellent ping so it's still even I think. I'd rather not play on a server that has high ping but it's not unplayable. That's the compromise currently with this game for international competition. I don't know how else you would get around it at the moment because even if you stuck with NA competing vs NA and vise versa with EU, you will eventually be getting to the matches with at least one round being high ping. Side note: This is just my personal opinion, but I think Yeho shouldn't be in the competitive play map rotations with 25 v 25. After seeing the results from all the matches played, its who gets the rush first and they all ended in BLOWOUTS. Once a team cuts off the other team by rushing the second cap of the enemy team its very hard to take back being how open and large the map is especially with 25 players. Only two games played in the tourny on this map ended with below 700 ticket diff while all the rest were 800+ ticket diff; so even the "close" games was a team winning by a margin of 300+ tickets each round. Maybe replace that map to a smaller map that's not so big and open would result in a better quality competitive play for 25 v 25 and better quality matches to watch.
  5. http://www.maphill.com/search/sangin/detailed-satellite-map/ The link above is a satellite view of Sangin, Afghanistan. Sangin was a place of heavy fighting during the war in Afghanistan against the Taliban and various Islamic groups. What I'm thinking is it has a large "Green Zone" that hugs the Helmand River. The "Green Zone" and desert zones are divided by a road that was called "Route Red" and has district centers, market strips, patrol bases, and local mud houses/compounds. The map could be 60% green zone and 40% desert (or whatever the devs deem appropriate) with the Insurgents starting in the "Green Zone" and Americans starting in the desert zone. When I was there, the green zone was where Taliban would hide and fight. I know the devs are working hard on a lot of other maps and I can hear it now, "we don't need another desert map". But, This desert map would be different being the ratio to dense green foliage to desert as it would take up over half the map compared to maps having relatively small areas of green zones in the map. Tell me what you guy's think! Again, this is just an idea I'm throwing out there that I would love to see get developed and added.
  6. Naaaaaaah, just a DMR please. A "sniper" class wouldn't be used effectively at all. 1 out of a 100 squads that pick the class would use it properly and the rest would be dead weight towards your team winning. Lone wolf's would be all too real with this class, no matter how anyone envisions it being used. The developers will not put it in the game, they said so. But mod's will be the place to tinker with a sniper thing.
  7. Rip It Energy Drinks

    When I was in country we had a ton of rip it energy drinks we took with us and we had empties strewn about the cab and turret, it would be so cool to see empty Rip It cans and maybe some wrappers from food laying around the turret . If you disagree I don't care, it would be cool to see those micro details in the turret and vehicles. Keep up the great work devs! You guys made the game I've been waiting for my whole life and it's even still in alpha! Hands down the best video game I've ever played.
  8. Stryker VS. Russian BTR

    20 rounds to kill a stryker with a 30mm just doesn't seem right to me. From what i've seen it takes less than that on full health vehicles.
  9. Yeah, you're just ranting about stuff many others have already ranted about before. The key to having fun in the game isn't about winning, and if you're a SL you have complete control over your squad. You can kick people who contribute noting; no mics; assholes; individuals etc. AND if you're pissed off about how every SL is not communicating and making bad decisions, you could just try another server. There's many avenues you can go down when you're getting frustrated. And like what was mentioned before, be patient and educate people as they may just not know everything you know
  10. Need FPS Boost

    Yeah whats your problem? 90 fps even on medium is good. It's still in alpha and not polished. Everyone suffers lack of great fps unless you have a beast computer. It will get better, just give it time as more updates come out.
  11. general purpose machine gunner

    Once they come out with deployable bi pods for weapons you will get the same effect as you would with a heavier machine gun. The only benefit you'd get to me would be better suppression on the enemy and more damage. But suppression in the game is tricky with machine guns. Most suppression in the game is done with rifles and of course the RPK and SAW but mainly rifles and it's done so with fire and maneuver tactics. So I don't really know the added benefit of adding a medium machine gun to the squad on top of the light machine guns. I like the idea if they add that in here as a choice between say a 240 and 249 or between a PKM and RPK mainly because I like more weapons choices
  12. Yeah, that's all things that are small. They do plan on adding minor weapons customization but not that of call of duty or battlefield. You will most likely get a pick between a couple scopes on some classes and maybe a couple fore-grips, who knows until the devs go more into it. But, the game is solid and people who are into this kind of game love the game. I think you shouldn't fix something that isn't broken.
  13. 1440p upgrade

    1080p 144hz with g-sync would be money well spent I think, you will get a much better game quality that way over more pixels. Monitors are cheaper and it still looks great on 1080p.
  14. cheaters

    I think I've seen someone banned from the game before. It showed "playerblahblahblah banned from squad" lawl
  15. cheaters

    Yeah, that's BS and the devs need to find a way to stop this.
