Lock & Unlock / Enable & Disable “Give Up” Button on the go.
Majority people on this site and I presume dev team are in favor of adding and improving quality of life components to the game. I might be wrong, please do disagree with me, if I'm. But giving the player options in the way they want to play is never a bad thing.
As a community of squad players, we already have lock and unlock feature for squads. I would like to make a humble suggestion to extend that aspect to counter act the reckless habit and careless behavior of majority player in squad right now, that are pressing the “GIVE UP” button as soon as they are in a down state.
It saddens me to say this, but the “Give Up” feature has become an epidemic and needs to be managed, on squad to squad bases. I would strongly advice the devs to impower SL’s, who want their squad members to learn to play correctly and wait for medics until their bleed timer is up.
I would like the developers to explore the idea and test the waters, find out if a tiny change like managing to enable and disable the “Give Up” button for SLs and let them choose when its the right time or practical to activiate squad members spawn in.
A good example for why implementing a “lock & unlock” feature to the “Give Up” button is a good idea. Would be in game modes like invasion or insurgency where ticket management is a win or lose situation.
Something I see 100% of the time in publics, is squad members pressing "give up” and respawning on rally point, charge into enemy solo, die and rinse and repeat.
I personally am interested in having a group ready to spawn in, rather then seeing my squad members trickling into a assault area like a ivdrop. Having said that, I understand you can tell your squad to wait for each other at a rally, but its not a effective tool in pubs. As a SL It's time consuming to constantly keep an eye out on who and how many are respawning.
A solution to this ineffective habit of assaulting a point would be for SL’s to have the option for their squad members hold off on respawning until 3 or 4 ppl are ready. Please let me make a strong reminder this is only for people that want to play in a more efficient way and more organized.
There is always an option for having the “Give Up” button enabled to accommodate Rambo style of behavior. I’m just stressing the fact that there is no option for the audience that want to play more conservatively and keeping their squad members together.
What I’m suggesting, and requesting is a UI feature that’s already implemented and doesn’t take development time away to implement as it’s something that’s already ingame menu. All I’m asking is please try it out see how it works out.
As such, I would like to request to expend the management tools for SLs, or more accurately have the choice to lock and unlock, the infamous “GIVE UP” button on the go.
Thank you for reading my suggestion. Let me know if this is a functionality or life improvement to squad leading you would like to see?
