  1. Regarding the influx of new players during free weekends and the effects it had the previous time on the gameplay of the normal squad player, i decided to make a new player guide. Since we find ourself in this situation again, it might as well post it here so new players may find it easier, hoping to prevent the same situation as last weekend. SQBG - Squad Beginner Guide "This guide is meant to give new players a basic idea of how the game works and to avoid common mistakes, problems and miscommunication wich can affect the gameplay for others." The main focus of this guide is to avoid all the little mistakes new players make and help them understand the general idea of how squad works without having to watch 20 minute videos or read wall of text. Evrything is explained as simply as possible with pictures and additional links to the squad wiki. You can also comment on the guide and i will try to answer as soon as possible. Link to guide: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1326437214 Good luck newbie.
  2. Yeah idk why the .50 overheats soo fast. It really limits its potential. In reality, the M2 Browning is very hard to overheat. It's one of the reasons it is still in service today, hard to beat.
  3. My PSU, not for the fact that i don't know how to exchange it or its size. (It's 350W only). But sadly my rubbish oem motherboard has a 14pin (yeah you read it right) connector for wich i cannot find a adapter cable wich can be delivered to my country or unless it comes from china with a 4week travel time. Also, my 1050ti isn't such a big card but it already barely fits in the case and not to mention that this low quality pc is already 5years old. That's what keeps me from putting more money into this pc.
  4. @DanielNLBtw,there is no option for me to further upgrade this potato machine. It used to have an even worse gpu before i put the 1050ti in. It's one of those rubbish prebuild pc's you buy in a electronics shop.
  5. Because any lower for long periods of time starts screwing with my eyes, feels like i have to focus alot more on my screen for some reason. Wich then leads to me quitting wich isn't soo good during comp. Also, due to the higher settings, i will dip beneath 40fps. On low it already goes as low as 42-43.
  6. Tomorrow's Free-Weekend & Sale

    "Rage, flaming and more or less constructive feedback, all these aspects are part of this competitive game" - Whytoe 2k18 Don't forget the salt
  7. Free weekends are really painful for normal players. I found it soo annoying that i actually went through the trouble of writing an entire beginner guide, hoping people would read it to avoid those annoying mistakes like spawning in without being told so, not knowing how rallies and logistics work etc.
  8. i7 4790 @ 3.6ghz, GTX 1050 Ti GT OC , 12 gb ddr3 1600. If i have to play comp, i'd only play when i get a constant 60fps, but i don't even manage that on my current settings. Sits between 45-80fps depending on map/action.
  9. Yes it can, i cannot play competitive with my clan due to the fact that the server kicks me for not having the correct shadow and view distance setting. I cannot put it higher due to loss of fps.
  10. Can I run Squad

    No problem, wish i had better news.
  11. Can I run Squad

    Minimum*: Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system OS: Windows 7 SP1 (x64) Processor: Intel Core i5-2500K CPU Memory: 8 GB RAM Graphics: Geforce GTX 770 or AMD Radeon HD 7870 DirectX: Version 11 Network: Broadband Internet connection Storage: 35 GB available space Additional Notes: A teamwork oriented mindset *from squad steam page CPU: i5-2500k is 44% better then your i5 7200u. GPU: gtx 770 is 173% better then your gtx 950m, HD7870 is 101% better then your gtx 950m Ram will suffice. I'm sorry but i don't think there is any chance you'll be able to run it. You are well below minimum specs. (% are from www.userbenchmark.com) For comparison, i have a gtx 1050 Ti, i7 4790 3.6ghz and also 12g of ddr3 ram. I run squad at 1080p on low, all settings off except one for lighthing adaptation and i only get between 45-80fps depending on map and action. My CPU is 55% better than yours and my gpu 122%.
  12. Personally, I think the next faction should be China

    Man, when i see these old battlefield style maps, i regret never knowing about PR. Feels like i really missed out on a good thing.
  13. Alright, was just asking since i5 are generally used for gaming. I got an i7 too though, 4years old and still going strong.
  14. Good way to balance iron sights .

    Idk about the whole bino for evryone suggestion, but i'm all for irons getting a small advantage in kit. Maybe 1 extra bandage + ammo to drop, since they're supposed to be frontline infantry. And INS LAT could use an extra HEAT rocket, since they don't have any heavy armour vehicles unlike the militia's BTR.
  15. Light Mortars For INS Faction

    Could be intresting, but i still have nightmares from the japanese knee mortars in Rising Storm. It led to alot of spam and rage. (They were fun to use though :P)
