  1. Suppression Overhaul Suggestion

    Well at this moment suppresion works perfectly. Just yesterday at Bashra I had to walk around building and I had to use street because on other site was wounded and I was medic and there was no other way. At and of alley on roof was gunner. i shoot at his direction two bullets. And he immediately lay down. I used this and sprint before he stand up again. And i made it without any notice and with no risk. i used this suppresion technique many times and it works. For example. Three guys from squad must get closer to objective. I suppress all known position where are enemies. They toke cover and they cant shoot. they are under strees and dont aim perfectly. So those guys made it and was able to throw nades on their positions. What i read is crying that you want some advantage when you shoot to enemy. Suppresion is that he not shoot back. If you shoot at him on open and he return fire its because he cant do anything else. If you suppress anybody who has posibility to cover he will do that in 90% of cases. And thats enough. But after while when he notice that you dont have best aim he will be more confidence and return fire. Suppresion in this game is one of best I have seen. I can compare it to other games. In past i thought that some "flinch" and efefcts would be nice but thats not true. Sometimes you are ambushed and surprised and than you move with mouse like "idiot" and that create effect itself. Its not neccesary have some game mechanics for cahracter because those situations are perfect for players itself. Some players are calm some not. Some are confidence some full of adrenaline, some gain skills some are rokies. Thats absolute briliant in this game that this is up on player how he will deal with it. And if you are shoot at enemy and he return fire and kill you that means you are beginner. Because he went through situation much better than you. You missed he survived. Next time do it better. Aim better or find a better shoot position. Or even dont shoot if you dont feel it.
  2. Regarding v10 Staging Period

    This is amazing. People have no idea how it will go and they have tons of negative thoughts about it already withouth any personal experiences. There are tons of negative but also positive scenarios. Lets say. Stop talk about it and give it a chance and see what will happen. And if itwill not work ... well who care we can change it same like before. Developers gave us many proofs that thay listen and care. We have developers, admins, adult community. Thats pretty strong imo. And kids are kids they will grow one day.
  3. Well every army will take any vehicle during conflict. But in Squad. Remember transport truck have 18 seats. nobody think about it and use it in clever way. And not enough vehicles ? Its overloaded by vehicles. But people dont use brains so they waste it again and again and again. True story bro. players have to be punished if they dont use them in good way.
  4. What counts as a kill?

    yep. Is that important ? BTR is down ... doesnt metter who made it. Teamwork.
  5. why lots of people like this game .... and why squad is unique? Minimum HUD is one of those things. And that stance icon and stamina icon is imo tooo much. Its small details but exact this detail create this game ... The Game. PR is fathermother of Squad and I hope that squad will stay with it. Why another icon instead of train observation and brain skills. Because its pretty easy to not just start shooting and find good position to shoot without those "problems" yes its happen. your RPG hit frame of window and not blow. Or your GL hit micromilimetr invisible dirt and not blow. And ? ... hey today they found 1,5 ton unexplosivved bomb in middle of Frankfurt from ww2. sometime its simple. It should not happen. Lets say. Its fate. And it works in game like Squad as well.
  6. Believe or not but its 2 years back and it was possible to draw on map But it was turned off. May be it will be back again one day. who know. one problem is that people draw dirty and it can remove some beuty from game.
  7. "Memorable moments.. for a Noob"

    nice mate. Welcome in your new family see you at field
  8. Do mortars suck?

    I like mortarting. And I dont like to use calculator because its absolutely not neccessary. If sombody have to use calculator than this guy have no idea how to operate with mortars. thats first mistake of players Second is if sombody fire 15 shells on 10x10 meters than its second mistake. with this amount its possible to cover whole 2 keay pads (200x100) and completely destroy or stop enemy. Third. If sombody try use mortar to hitting compound area its just wasting ammo. Better is use mortar just in situation when enemy have to cross some open area. mortars in game are more less for defending than for attacking. so mortar fire is best to prepare to firesupport (create barage) around defending flag. There are more possibilities how to fire. Why increase some reloading time when its possible just fire one shell per minute. I do that if i have to surrpress enemy. slow them and stress them. Friendly units grab a time to regroup at Dflag. Or fire for effect and in this case I jsut consume all ammo points. But all squad leaders are informed. Also I everytime informa other squad leaders where morats are going to hit and so on. If everything work mortar team is able to have 30+ kills and make enemy frustrated and angry. What is great result because they will send some full squad to hunt small mortar team instead of put this squad at some objective. Like everything. Using a brain is best weapon and doesnt metter if you have medic or play in vehicle or operate mortars.
  9. Hi All It´s Steeve

    Welcome in family buddy. Well one very good tip is basic knowledge about basic game mechanic. There is wiki. Link at top navigation. Definitely use mic and say hallo and that you are new. And also good is start with simple rifle. Yea and visit Firing range before game. There are some explanations. Walk around and read it. It will help you understand how game work and you will know all you need. Also many new players donnt know that you have right and left click for "stuff" Greenades left click upper hand. Right click lower hand. Left click with shovel. Build. Right click destroy. And so on. Many times I saw how soembody rebuild enemy HAB instead of remove it. Also at firing range you will get familiar with some basic shortcuts. Than practical tips. Stay with your squad leader but keep good distance (not be one of those guys who dies all in one pack after one grenade) Stay low approach slow and rather survive than constantly respawn. Wait for medics and so on. So have a fun. See you at field.
  10. New change - map marker icon

    Thumb up. I know why i like you developers Honest, true and fair open studio. Lead by example. Hope that more people be like you. And not just developers but that even people from this community will take it as own and be more gentle to life.
  11. FOB ammo abuse

    I dont think so its problem. Becuase who could think that in future Ammo creat will be possible to build at FOB ???? that is bulshit and rearm should come from true drop by logistic or vehicle with extra ammo. At least lLike in PR. so Atm just another step how to drill young members of community to become strong and ready for future. But in long term I see that its not important and complain now is waste of time.
  12. Squad

    Welcome in family buddy nobody will fight with you because you have right. But think about this. will be game playable ? This game is not just about realism but also about fun. there must be some compromisses to keep fun. Just for info in dev team is vet who operated mortars (so logicaly they realize arent they ?) For the rest of points ... Alpha is answer. For example. In next update 9.6 which is behind corner. You can see some teaser. "you will be able to destroy some deoploable with explosives like grenades, shells, heavy weapons and so on" so its comming just dont hurry. There are many to do. Just have fun in game and follow rising game perl. thermal. Have you ever heard about Project Reality mod fro BF2 ? that is predecessor of this beautiful game. And ? yes there are thermals. But well we are in alpha. Its not priority now. Also dont underestimate search function. Most was already written (many times). so hope that helped take it easy and see you at field. Current status is not concreated
  13. How/Where did you discover Squad?

    I also read some rumors at PR forum...than Squad hooked me. And from Pre-Alpha i didnt open PR
  14. Hello!

    Welcome there buddy.
  15. Night games

    Night maps exists .... problem is that many players when night map start increase their monitor brigth and ruin this experience to others. But if people dont do that its awsome.
