  1. i got an ssd

    Your biggest benefit will come from using it for your OS. Boot times will be significantly faster and overall your PC will feel that much snappier. 120gb (-OS) isn't that large so you'll have to be choosy in what games etc you put on the SSD. You can install Steam games to different drives if you select the option before downloading. Squad really does benefit from loading from SSD so probably should be ones of those you put on it.

    Sometimes though it can be tactically advantageous to give up early. Perhaps the rally is far away from the area you were downed but closer to a previous cap that is now under attack and your SL has been asked to supply troops for that fight. I still think it is OK to have the option to give up but having penalties should make players think first to determine if it's worthwhile.

    Yep, carrot and stick in one combo. For me it's about encouraging individuals to play a certain way rather than punish the whole team for that individual's actions.
  4. Horrific Performance in Squad all of the Sudden

    What does that mean? Do you get FPS drop to 40-55 FPS then it goes back to 100+ FPS after a 'lengthy period'? Certain maps in certain areas are poorly optimised so FPS drops are not unusual. You say you 'monitor' your system. Is it just temps and FPS or are you using something like Afterburner where you can see memory usage, page file usage individual cpu core temps etc as well?

    @Twizted I believe it better to encourage players to wait for a revive through spawn timings then punish the team through ticket loss. This is especially true for public games. OWI just need to find that ballance. In v12 anyone can revive so getting revived before bleeding out is much more likely. A good way I see it working....... Wave spawning is every 60 seconds with a minimum spawn timing of 20 secs then you'll wait for the next wave so 60+20=80 seconds if you give up just at the wrong time. I think OWI should increase the minimum spawn timing to 60 secs and then adjust it based on give up/waiting for revive. If you give up remaining bleed out time is added the minimum respawn time. Wait for a revive during bleed out and the the time is subtracted from the minimum spawn timing. Even those timings are probably not ideal but trying to suggest a way to 'encourage' individuals not to give up with the chance of a 20 sec respawn.

    Ticket loss will just punish the team for giving up and not the individual.

    I can see how giving up now becomes a more appealing option than waiting to be revived. Not having any first hand experience of the changes your description highlights the problem perfectly. Perhaps the wave respawn timing could be lengthened for those giving up with waiting for revive time subtracted from the wave spawn timer. It's a substantial change to spawning and needs OWI to tweak the timings to get the desired player responses.

    Yeah the BF3 version.
  9. Battlefield Talks About Squad!

    Damn, I got goose bumps and a wave of nostalgia when the music started. Shame it won't have the destruction of the original.
  10. Game needs more maps ...

    Randomised AAS will also help keep maps fresher for longer. I love learning new maps but I also enjoy knowing what I am headed into and the lay of the land ahead. Adding the randomised element decreases the rinse and repeat scenarios we get now.
  11. Farm 51 - World War 3

    Shame that in the picture on the screen he's holding isn't himself looking at a screen looking at himself. .........infinitum.
  12. Farm 51 - World War 3

    Game needs optimising though. On at gtx1080 you only get 200-300 fps with the wallpaper engine. In Squad it used to be in the 1000s on my 1080ti in the load screen.
  13. +1 The performance boost is an added bonus.
  14. Squad Vehicle Radio

    This already happens on local comms. Although amusing at times I wouldn't want it to become a feature.
  15. Is there a memory leak in V11?

    Do yourself a favour and get a SSD. Use it primarily for your OS but Squad will get significant benefits if you install it on the drive as well. It won't cure memory leaks but it will certainly reduce their impact on your PCs performance.
