  1. You need more practice. I personaly found out the best for landing use deck lights. Lending definitely is challenging and is pretty cool that its not so easy. Yeh collective control was also in PR. But after while i prefer what we have now Squad this is in my opinion more precise and it allow some interesting manuevres to do which are much harder without it.
  2. Tank Commanders Turret control

    Well there is something like "Aim where commander look" So commander of tank can say. "I aim to target" And gunner can press one button (check game settings) and voila. Gun is aimed. Stabilization have to be turn on.
  3. I have watched some stream of new players. All of them ... ALL of them wanted marksmen kit. Why ? Oh ... optic ? could be answer. Oh men. I have seen how players have walking simulation, how they blidnly died at so bad places and so on. Like mortar landing pretty close, amazingly those new players everytime run closer and not take cover. Is that magnet for them ? yes not surprise that they died everytime and have to spawn again. Some of them complain. They should hit desk with head because they complained not about suicidish movement but everything else. It was very interesting to watch. If you rush you will see nothing and be back in spawn point very very fast and often. Main problem of any new player is ... they are tooooooooo fast and this lead to confusions. What ? where ? who ? why ? Just adapt. Slow down. Listen, look around. Check map (offten). Follow SL. Dont focus on kills. This game is not about kills but about progress. Progress is avaiable just with teamwork. So game is about teamwork. Teamwork is about communication. So use voip. Voila ... Ultimate challange. Survive. When you survive you can start think how to play aggressiv. Optic is not holy grail for survivality. There are different things and better kits. New players move usually very dangerously. They still want shoot something (they think that thats game goal), they still want see enemy even they dont have equipment to see them. They have rifleman kit with ironsight and want to see enemy marksmen which is 500m far ? why ? are they crazy ? Just continue and simply dont do that. Ignore everything what you cant do. Think before and than make action. Blind action lead to spawn point. More spawns lead to more walk or be out of action and eventualy boring. Stay alive. Slow down. Than its like magic. Suddenly player see enemy and is able to shoot towards them precisely even without optics because its pretty simple.
  4. Are You not Bored with Base Raping Guys?

    If something like that happen. Team failed at epic level. Its not restricted, its pretty easy to deal with it because its so easy to do. Team which is not able deal with that failed at epic level^2 Well its undesrtandable. There is now newplayers multipled by 5 every day over experienced players. So they are not able to do that. Because they still dont understand that this is not CoD,BF,CS. Next month it will not be such an issue. Its so easy today play squad for anybody who play it more then year. Its like shooting drunk ducks. Tactics which doesnt work years .. suddenly works again. One experienced player can easily deal with whole squad of new players. And so on.
  5. why we cant destory trees ?

    there is only one solution .... at this moment. call "Enemy tree" simply dont hit them.
  6. Performance issues

    C:\User\your_user_name\AppData\Local\ there you will find folder with name Squad. Delete this Squad folder. This is manual "clear cache" After that you have to make again game settings (graphics, keybind, whatever you did) This is suggested after every update, specialy after those major update.
  7. This is good in case that your squad doesnt move. If squad is in motion, this will lead to seperate from squad sooner or even sooner. Which will lead to squad wipe. And then position will be overrun. But you inspired me to write something. There are two situations. 1) Squad is in defensive state. 2) Squad is in movement (which we can call assaulting state in 90%) Therfor required survival skills are doubled. In one hand player have to figure out how to effectively "camp" (lats name it FPSish) When player play with this in mind its easy to be traped in tunel vision. When he is in squad with other 8 those guys (who think fpsish) than whole squad will be traped in tunel vision. Than couple can easily flank them and take them down all. One could say Ez. This is problem of players with less than 500 hours. May be even more. Sad but its pretty realistic tip. Well this create opportunity right ? Just use this psychological knowledge as advantage its pretty obvious how. So how to prevent that. Easily. Dont .. Be .. Sheep. Be Doe or Wolfs (depends D or A) Lets take herd of does. In every single time they look around. They bend down for grass and immediately they pokes theirs head up and scan horizon. So at every single time there is at least one which searching for potentional dangerous. What i see in game is herds of sheeps. May be someone is confused what i mean. Hitin LMB = feeding up with head down and blind to whole area. Hunting. Sprinting. Assaulting. All of those are classic behavior for players to fill mounth by grass and forgot that well there is dangerous around. Sometimes its funny open map and watch where players look and how they react when one sheep yell "contact west full squad". In most cases everyone turn to that direction. Everyone. This is classis sign of herd of sheeps. whats next they will do ? They react irracionaly. "where where where, i wanna kill" .... lets translate it "ooooh food for freee. Race for feed". You see ? sheeps. And they will die, obviously because it was just couple. And rest of squad is on their north. Like i said ... Ez. Mistakes thay did. They left covers ffs. Why ? Ussualy before contact 1/2 of herd is partialy or fully protected by some covers. And suddenly they leave it ? whaat? Lets check how herd of does react. One see danger. They spread out in different angles from danger and run in to cover (forest, bushes, trenches, ... ) but notice that they keep in mind they are herd and from where danger came. And than they stop and they dont eat thay scan, all of them. And then they react. Sure we are not going run away, in game we will adapt our position to take in mind that there is definitely dangerous from known area but we dont forget we have to look around. Lets stop with this article. And take fast look at assault. You have to be pack of wolfs. But look how wolfs acting in field. Every single time there is at least one who watching target and surrounding flanks. Looks some documentary how they do that. Look closely. In game we can see ussualy how herd of sheeps trying to feed up their mounths.
  8. Solving the v12 Logistics Nightmare

    Lol ... FOBs need slow generation of points. That reminds me first versions of FOB in Squad where Supply wasnt a thing. We finally have logistic system in game after years of development and people call for autogenerators ? funny. Squad is teamwork game. Where Logi is part of gameplay. If from 40 people there is 0 who is able run logi. Team MUST suffer, because they want just CoD or CS. They dont have to play Squad. Burn in pain you silly team. No mercy.
  9. Squad founders- where are they now?

    iam also KS baker and still playing. Eventualy take couple of months pause there and there but constantly sniffing around and enjoying any news. This game is now miles miles farther and its awesome to follow up how it grows.
  10. commander?

    I remember one epic day in Project Reality ... lovely Muttrah map. In one of most critical moment commander was request to call airstrike. I think i have never seen before and after so many Tks within a seconds. ~15 TKs, something like that. Well luckily everybody took it with calm and smile at face. It was epic target miss. So well that can happen pretty easily. And honestly that was pretty good and trustable commander but it happend accidentely.
  11. Alpha 12.1 Released

  12. Yep I agree. That is ridiculous. Mortars are atm total useless. Smoke is more effective than HE.
  13. Little squads, many vehicles v12.

    Fact is .. that players dont know how to cooperate. At pubs level. Players want kills no matter what. Infantry squad ussualy want capture flag. Mechanized infantry ussualy want rush Logi want build super fob Tanks want hunt enemy armors BTR/Strykes want hunt enemy armors .... Result => whole team just "run" headles around because they want to some kills. What a silly behaviour which came from modern FPS games. I understand that armors are fresh and people want enjoy them and players want do that. But also players whould already know that remove threat (armors) is easy and problem is in between triger and target....yes player itself. After 2 weeks i dont accept any argue that infantry is underpowered agains vehicles. Thats not true. Players are ignorants ... thats true. Players are too focus to kill threats and thay simply waste a time, sources and minds there and blame gamemechanics. Players should think about what is reason why thay play squad. Is it bcause thay can kill or something blow up? is it for teamwork ? And thats it. If answer is teamwork than it doesnt metter if player even shoot from rifle. That rifle is for him just persuative tool or selfdefence tool and main objective is capture all flags or prevent enemy to capture that flags. And because one cant do anything .. team is an answer. But when inf SL call to tank SL that he want support with clear buildings which are at objective and he doesnt waste tickets of his mens and sources. And . And tank just ignore that because he want kill tanks "u idiots". Or when logistic SL ask if route is safty to approach and answer is silent .... and there is no activity to recon area from presented Infatry. Than its signs that palyers completely missunderstood why they play Squad. And if those players than complain that there is no proper cooperation thay can look in mirror and tell it to themselfs. V12 just show us who we are as persons. And how good we are at adaptation and teamcooperation. At this moment certificate is "very poor". I hope that in close future will this change to at least "avarage". So after initial rush, all flags captured by both sides than there is big battle in between vehicles. Than everyone end as ifantry and everyone complain that there is no option to get to next flag except ... walking. Yes u "imbecils" because you abadoned all transport trucks and screamed all apcs ... apc which mean Armored Personal Carier ... Unfortunately this word is for many players synonymum for "mbt", I am BTR ... IAM TANK .. bumbumbum ... sorry .. thats v11 .. thats old. U should open eyes and get in presence time. Real BTR/Stryker.. whateer is ... transport infantry. Stay safe, Stay away and be ready to drive close to inf let them jump in and get them fast out. Nope we see how 1/2 team sit far far away from objective flag and i dont know .. may be hunting "chickens dinner" around. Well and thats it. This is sad true about current gamplayes ... at pubs. And who is reason ? players. Noone else.
  14. More i think about new spawn system and ammo restriction more i think that. Spawn at main ... full gear reload. Spawn at HAB ... minimal gear reload (like we have 3mags + 2 bandages if player have less than that) Spawn at RP .... no gear reload. PLayer have what he have. Reason i think about it. RP is regroup, temporarly solution for simulating larger attack. Mostly its used on flanks. Or closer to attack area (or closer to FOB as backup). Player will have couple of spawn and than they wil lstart suffer without ammo. it will push squad back to FOB where thay reload and try it again. This could creat natural spacing in between attacks and both sides will ahve time properly think about what are they doing (theoretickaly) But if attack will be supported by proper logistyc system than attack can create much bigger push to enemy. I think that respawn at RP with minimum 3mags + 2 bandages are still too much.
  15. Couple of bad decisions in my opinion

    There are cause and consequences. Just think about bigger pictures. Reviving ability and ammo and RP ... those 3 things are from v12 connected pretty tight. RP wave spawn is good balance for infinite spawns at RP. From streams its possible to see that players pretty suffered but they dotn realize that thay have unlimited spawn point. Which is greatly covered (small, camouflaged and no sounds around). Everyone can revive everone with penalty. 14s to revive + revived guy is nerfed. No spirnt, no jumps, little bit worse aming (this could be much much harsher). Guy who revived has -1 bandage. Its risky that he will need it and so on. And everyone constantly losing ammo. Lets take one example. So lets say squad make flank. You can keep your guys more in action withtout respawns and keep them longer in combat. But longer you are there and longer you are using RP your squad is weaker and weaker. Well 3 mags are enough for most of players for 1 ticket cost but special kits like AT, GL, Marskmen, AR they noticibaly support less and less. After 3 wave your squad is going to stuck at one place because squad simply dont have enough firepower. Now squad have 2 option. Keep fighting with small arm fires and call support squad to deliver any avaiable ammo. Or give up at flank and go back to FOB where is higher chance that squad will rearm. What i could see during playtet there were even more than 100 revives. Its doubled against current sitaution which is good. And i saw how easy is change game direction. Good team full of great players lost a game against much weaker enemy which greatly play couple of moments with vehicles and retake initiation because realized that logistic is key point. There is going to be many things which players will have to rethink. Keep not squad togather but whole team. Play logistic and transport and so on. Or team will simply suffer. Not just couple of players but whole team. That will be penalty for ignorance that nobody care. And i support this because till now people just play more like run and gun no matter what. This update going to be closer to Project Reality than anytime before and PR games are much more about team and cooperation at Team level than we have now in Squad. Players must realize that Squad from begining is not another CoD but slowly step by step going to be much harder because there is plan from begining that its going to be harder and harder. And last 2 years proved that its not empty words. Many people stoped playing squad just because they liked faster game before 1,5 year and now they cant play it anymore its too dificulty for them. Easy like that.
