I'm a hardcore war gamer!!
I started with board games like Stratego, Axis & Allies, Risk, Tactics II and still love a game of chess.
My first computer game was Delta Force 2. After a couples years Joint Operations/Typhoon Rising came out. Joined International Conflict (IC) and played in over 32 campaigns over a course of 7 years and had ranks from recruit to general with multiple campaigns as a CO. We had 9 hour battledays every Sunday which allowed players from all over the world to play as they could and we'd spend the week planing our strategies for this 1 day of battle...I miss this.
Then Battlefield and ARMA came out. It took me a few years to build a new computer to handle them. Since then I've been wandering around between the two until someone introduced me to SQUAD.
Tactics and strategy are talents, I love this #$%!, and I've played many a game and gotten the highest score and it wasn't for kills. I can always find a weakness in a defense when attacking and know how to set a defense that 3 or 4 people can hold off any entire army.
But the problem is finding players now days willing to play together, this isn't happening in Battlefield or ARMA III. From what I see of the way SQUAD is set up, the opportunities seem promising.
So if there's a squad in here that plays this way... my boots are polished, my rifle is clean, uniform may be a little raggedy, but I'm ready for battle!
