    People really need to learn to use the search function.

  3. If you need any help, feel free to add me on steam.
  4. Limited Alpha 12 Test Oct 10th

    Eh, i think people will be even more carelessly with them if they're not worth tickets. How often do you check your map as a non-vehicle squad to check if there are any armored vehicles left at main? They might all get destroyed and 70% of the team doesn't realize it, and evryone just plays infantry. Maybe put a cap on respawns, this will also stop the ticket bleeding from losing vehicles when occupied by unskilled operators.
  5. v12 new M4 sound..

    Agreed, i prefer the new ak sound. Idk about m4, don't mind the old or the new.
  6. I've seen alot of Fins and Swedes play, but no Danes yet. (Or i simply can't tell the difference :l...)
  7. Limited Alpha 12 Test Oct 10th

    Yeah, only lasted for a very limited time. Just fooled around in the firing range a bit. I sure hope i can switch off beta without having to redl, tried it last night and it wanted to redownload the normal version.
  8. What is really going on with Squad?

    It won't die unless something similair and better is released. As you said, it's unique and even after 650hrs i still come back to it. Don't think i'll play any other fps game besides Squad in the near future, all the big titles have gone to waste.
  9. What is really going on with Squad?

    It was quite decent before release but it only went downhill from there. Sadly i bought it from a 3rd party site or i would have refunded it. I'll stick to my "Alpha-state" squad, wich is 10x better than a released PS. Atleast Squad gets decent updates unlike that "ticket update" from a while back for PS.
  10. Post Processing

    Never tried those options since i play on low, but have you checked your nvidia profile for squad? Might be overwriting the settings of the game itself.
  11. SQUAD - The more, the worse

    I can wholeheartedly agree on your 3-point list. Especially point 2. Throwing away btr's and strykers or even the heavier vehicles leads to a very quick loss of tickets wich demoralizes people and makes them accept that the game is already lost. 1 & 3 are a nuisance but can be overcome. I'm also in a clan, whom participates in tournaments (not me) so they do tend to take preformance into account when they decide on accepting a new member. So if you play against a competitive oriented clan, there is a good chance that the individual players are better than the average squaddie because they've been recruited on a basis of skill (and other values like comms, game sense etc.). It's annoying when we are playing and we got about 15 people in discord, to then start switching over people for the sake of balance. Most often, we ask or the admin asks us to switch sides after a one-sided game.
  12. Bring Back v9 Hit Reg

    I fear there might be better examples than this video, but i must confess, i'm getting alot more tradekills than i used to get in v9. It works both ways though, i have shrugged off 6-7 rounds in 1 situation when i pushed on a dude lying behind a small hill. I could hear myself getting hit but no damage taken while i killed him without any problem.
  13. How many fps ?

    When did you last play squad? V9? During that time i also played on high at 60fps+.
  14. How many fps ?

    i7 4790 - 12gb ddr3 - MSI GTX 1050 Ti GT OC here. Take it from me, you don't want to play on a 1050ti. I play on 1080p, ervything on low and get between 45-80fps. Game looks horrible, but i'm just glad to be playing on my potato.
  15. Price

    The largest discount on squad has been 50%. I played it during free weekend, bought it sunday night @ 18.49 euro. Easily on of the best price/game ratio's ever.
  16. BE the CHANGE that you WANT to see in SQUAD

    Yeah, no big fan of stats. I've noticed in other games that i start focusing on my kd too much, and then start playing in a way that benefits my kd. Evry round of squad is a new start, so you don't have to worry about it. If my team needs me to run logi's and i sometimes die in them without getting kills, then that's what it is. If i don't bring supplies, we got no hab and we lose. Same thing if i SL, i don't bother with my kd. I spot and direct fire, keep the rally alive, place fob's etc. Sometimes i do well as SL in the kd department, but the SL class mostly leads to tunnel vision for me. I'm not focused on killing. Same with LAT, figure out what helps your team the most. A positive kd or the fact that you took down 3x 30mils? That's 60 tickets down for the enemy. I often do have a positive kd at the end of the round but it's not what i tend to think off when i'm running behind a vehicle with the possibilty of getting shot.
  17. Unless i get rattled in the original burst, an enemy machinegunner is easily dealt with. Too loud, too obvious. Alot harder to find a rifleman firing at you.
  18. Ticket count

    You'd be amazed how much medic revives matter. I've won games as close as 2 tickets to none. Teamwide revives often range from 30-90 revives, most of the time around the 50 mark. That's 50 tickets saved by the medics alone. Since the bleed of flags has been lowered, medic revives and vehicle deaths have grown to the major factors determining the outcome of a game. So i say, leave it at 1. Else you'll have a few people able to quickly ruin a game.
  19. Ryzen 5 2600 for Squad ?

    For gaming, the general rule is Intel > AMD. Intel often has better single core preformance than AMD, wich leads to higher fps in games. However, your ryzen 5 2600 is pretty much on par or even slightly better than my i7 4790. (Recommended cpu is i7 4790k) Your gpu will also do well, it's on par with the recommended gtx970/r9 290. If you want to compare yourself, i can suggest the site userbenchmark.com. You can compare cpu's, gpu's etc. Do take the percentages of effective speed with a grain of salt. For gpu's , you're better off checking the example fps of games lower in the list.
  20. Is that mortar fire?

    "Let me back inside!" *cries*
  21. Played some hours yesterday, 3 games as squad lead. Had some new players in my squad whom stated it as soon as they entered the squad so me and my mates learned them up a bit. Just kept reinviting the same new guys into my squad after i got my clan mates in. They learned and acted as best as they could. But for the 2 "good attitude" new guys i played with, i must have kicked 6 or more out of my squad over those 3 games due to no mic/not staying near squad/taking the wrong kit and refuse to switch/spawning in on main and spamming vehicle approval etc. Both of the new players whom i played with did not purchase the game yet on sunday night, so these are the guys we could lose if we don't have a free weekend. (I don't know if they bought it after though :/)
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
