  1. Sight picture, quality of life

    Any preliminary info you can link to me? I am curious what this means for gameplay.
  2. Sight picture, quality of life

    After some time in the firing range as well as live multiplayer combat I have come to find using certain projectile weapons, especially those with heavy projectile trajectory arcs (and relatively lower velocities), to be difficult to utilize effectively and consistently at range. I have seen many threads about weapon zeroing and can tell that a lot (if not all) of the small arms in this game are zeroed to a reasonable distance. However for anti-tank roles there seems to be no built-in zeroing, which greatly limits the ability of the operator to obtain a clear sight picture before firing at longer distances. I haven't been following developer comments about real-time zeroing for players in-game, but I would like to suggest a hard-coded rocket propelled grenade launcher zeroing of at least 100 meters (preferably 150 to 200) in order to improve operator quality of life. I am aware Squad is not aiming to be as close to realism/simulation as the Arma series, but I believe it would be reasonable to ask for the ability to see your target before pulling the trigger when engaging within the weapon's real-world effective range.
  3. As it stands, current server browser is cumbersome to most casual players who may not own reserved slots on servers. The process of having to see 64/72 players in a server, attempting to connect, waiting to load, then getting booted back to home menu only to refresh servers again adds a level of frustration/tedium that could be avoided. I would suggest changing the client server browser so that it will show the number of reserved slots, and also have an option to prevent connection attempts for those who know they do not have reserved slots on any server. This would greatly reduce the amount of tries and time spent trying to connect to a well populated server with some ostensibly free slots. Some context/about me: I would consider myself a casual player with some experience in military simulation games like Arma 3. At times I find I launch Squad and try for maybe 10 to 15 minutes to connect to well populated servers while catching up with email or other simple tasks. Some days I do not find a suitable server in that amount of time and end up doing other things (be it gaming or just non-computer related stuff). I do like the squad community, though, compared to a lot of other games. So when I don't play Squad I usually don't play anything else for that computer session.
