Forum Rules 07/06/2016Introduction The Squad Team reserves the right to edit, update, add and remove rules at any time. Applicable rules extend to the PM system. Your PMs are private, but the Squad Team may be informed about unacceptable PM content by the receiving party. Section I: Posting Rules §1 Show Respect This community can only work if we all respect each other. To that end, it is imperative that any time you engage with another user, either directly or indirectly, you show them respect with the content of your post. In particular refrain from flaming, insulting, abusing, taunting, racism, and other similar types of actions towards other forum users. §2 Attitude & Behavior Poor attitude and behavior are the most common ways a negative / unsafe environment is created and perpetuated. As such that kind of behavior will not be allowed on these forums. Please be mindful of this rule when posting personal positions and opinions regarding topics which could be considered contentious in nature. As a rule of thumb, keep your posts civil in nature, and refrain from making posts that are likely to incite arguments and create a negative environment. As a privately hosted web forum we reserve the right to maintain an environment that we are happy the majority of our players are comfortable with. §3 Swearing While we will not strictly moderate every little swear that occurs, please try to avoid excessive bad language. The moderation reserves the right to remove rants and unsuitable content at any time. §4 Illegal Topics
Prohibited topics include, but are not limited to: Piracy, drugs (including cannabis), pornography, religion, racism, sexism, homo/trans -phobic content, videos and images showing violent death or serious injury, ‘spam threads’, hacking & griefing (endorsement thereof), religion, politics, etc. Prohibition may be suspended for some threads if they are found to be suitable by the Moderation (such as scientific debate).
If there is doubt, the Moderation Team can decide whether a topic is considered illegal. §5 Attitude towards Squad and the Development Team
As per §1 and §2, keep in mind to be respectful and reasonable, not only towards all users of the forum, but also towards the Squad Team and towards any ideas and content and the game itself. Criticism is welcome, but if it is not constructive and/or if it is offensive, the Moderation may need to step in. Please refrain from posting if you are upset, angry or drunk, or you may be punished for things you wouldn’t have otherwise written, which is not in anyone's interest. §6 Language & Legibility
Please post only in English. Non-English content (including non-legible content) may be removed. If you see someone posting in another language because s/he apparently does not speak English, please report their post - if you can, you may reply in their language to explain their question, but please do translate their and your message so it can be reviewed by the Moderation. ‘Hiding’ insults in non-English posts will be punished harshly. Posts written largely in ‘leetspeak’ or full of spelling / grammatical errors may be treated like non-English content. This rule does not extend to PMs. §7 Forum structure & Search
Please ensure when posting a new thread, that the thread is located inside the correct forum section. Check all forum section titles to judge where your thread should belong. Threads created in the wrong forum section will be moved or deleted.
Before posting a new thread, please make use of the forum search to find older threads about the same topic. In doubt, it is recommended to rather post in an existing thread, unless that thread is years out of date. However, do not bump old threads without adding a new question / answer / insight that wasn’t in that thread before - use common sense. §8 Thread Titles
Please name your thread appropriately; the subject title should sum up / explain the content in the thread. If you fail to name your thread properly (such as ‘Hey!’ or ‘Check this out!’ or ‘Help!’), we will either rename or lock the topic. Repeated offense may lead to infractions. The practice of using CAPITALS only in your thread title is not allowed and will be edited or the thread will simply be deleted. Strange or abnormal Unicode characters should be excluded from thread titles for the sake of being distracting and unnecessary.
§9 Thread Capitalization
Please ensure that your post is not in all CAPITALS, as this is not allowed. Any threads posted in all caps will subsequently be removed from the forum. Repeated offenses may lead to infractions against your account. This practice is not approved or accepted here.
§10 Images in posts
When posting images, mind the following restrictions:
.gifs will be allowed and may be removed by Staff if deemed necessary.
Maximum size for images is 1280x1024.
Do not include more than ~1 large image per paragraph of text, unless in image collection / announcement threads. Link to further images.
Consider posting thumbnails. You may post a few more images per post if they are reasonably small, the details are for the Moderation to judge. §11 The use of BBCode
It is allowed to use the BBCode in your posts. Over usage is not allowed. You may use the Bold in a reasonable manner but not for the whole text body. You may use the size feature but in a limited reasonable manner. You may not use any of the additional fonts at all. Color may be used to high light a point but again, not for the whole text body. Moderators will be watching for misuse and will edit when required without giving notice. Continued disregard for this rule will result in Moderator action in the form of warnings. §12 Complaints of Server/Admin Abuse Reports of server/admin abuse will not be posted publicly. All reports concerning this type of behavior should be place in the appropriate sub-forum. http://forums.joinsquad.com/forum/241-report-server-admin-abuse/ All posts made outside of this area will be be removed. Section II: Reporting & Moderation §1 Reporting Posts
There is a Post Report system in place. If you notice a post that violates forum rules, simply use the exclamation mark icon below the users avatar image to send a report to the Moderation. We will then review this post. Your report will not be made public and cannot be linked to your person by anyone outside of the Squad Team. You will not be punished for using the Report system even if the report was false, unless you repeatedly abuse the system to spam it.
Do not ‘report’ posts by replying directly in public to them. In case of spambots, this prompts them to respond in turn, spamming the forum further. This also fuels flame wars and arguments. §2 Reporting Moderators
Moderators are subject to the same forum rules (and some additional rules / exceptions). If you think that a Moderator has treated you unfairly or is otherwise breaking forum rules, please PM the Lead Moderator or any Administrator. Do not accuse Moderators in public, the Squad Team will treat every complaint seriously and it is in our interest to discipline or remove Moderators who are known to break forum rules. §3 Respect Squad Team members and Moderators
Do not ignore or argue against Admin, Moderator or Dev instructions on the forum. If you have a complaint, as per §2, please inform the Team in private. You are expected to follow orders given by the Moderation, Administration and Development Team, and it is necessary for smooth running of the forum to respect their decisions. Being stubborn or ignoring warnings will lead to harsher punishments - however, we do not tolerate Moderator / Admin abuse of power / privileges, so do not hesitate to inform other Team members if you feel treated unfairly. §4 Bans and multiple accounts
If your account is temporarily or permanently banned, do NOT create another account. Bypassing a ban will result in further action, and a permanent ban of all of your accounts.
You are not allowed to have more than one account for any reason. If you share an internet connection with another user who has their own account, it might happen that this account is incorrectly identified as a secondary account - please get in touch with the Moderation or Administration to resolve such issues.

What's up guys, First off just let me state that this game is great. At the time of posting I have about 180 hours in. This IMO is one of the best mil-sim type games I have played. The amount of "Realism" They have in the game makes it a good experience and an enjoyable way to pass the time. However, with all games, I find some improvements would benefit the game. Below are some of the improvements I believe the game can benefit from. Let me know if you guys agree or what your opinion is on them. - All factions weapons should have access to sights. It makes it a bit unbalanced and isn't very enjoyable to be forced to have no sights. If an individual wants to have no sight they should be allowed to choose that. However, forcing some classes or weapons to not have sights on certain factions seems quite foolish to me. If that individual is equipped enough to have a 203 launcher attached to their rifle, then they probably have a sight. It actually does not sound bad to have the ability to choose whatever sight for your weapon if it is typically used for that weapon. For example, A AR Kit could utilize Iron Sights, M68 Red dot, EO Tech, or an ACOG. I'm not sure if everyone agrees, but that doesn't sound bad. If not that, at least allow a sight OR iron sights if not the choice of the type of sight. - a "Party" option for friends added to the game so they can be brought into servers with you, and the ability to add a friend and/or send an invite to a player in a server who is not in the party prior. This enables people to make "Friends" in game and bring them along, sidestepping the whole searching for them on steam process. - Fire team leaders should be allowed to set emplacements like the squad leader. If not straight-up allowed themselves then at least be able to request permission to set emplacements from the Squad leader (Just like the vehicle mechanic) - Fire team leads should also be allowed to set Enemy / Fire mission markers - No 1-man locked squads. This should be changed to at least a 4 man requirement. This way that squad can at least run a 2 man armor(Vehicle) team. Anything below that doesn't make sense. - An option to make the mini-map smaller. If not universally at least for when you are driving. Not everyone has a reliable TC (Truck Commander). - Advertisement. As I've stated, this game is great IMO and one of the best if not the best mil-sim type shooter. However, the player base isn't very large. at the time of this review there is only a 5,823 peak player base. Not terrible, but not great. My concern with this is overtime the game will take the natural course of losing players and dwindle down to even smaller numbers. I'm not sure how exactly the game could or should be advertised, I just think that it should be. I think they should utilize advertising on social media platforms, and more specials on Steam. The specials could range from more free-to-play days with front page advertising of such on steam so people can see it, to more frequent discounted days. I understand it's easy for me to state that when I am not the one fronting the money to do such, but I believe this player base can grow even more and I don't want the game to lose any of the player base it has over time simply due to it not growing because people do not know of its existence. Let me know how you guys feel about some of these points!
Squad Zero is for the most casual player or the squaddie looking for the most intense fight he can. The main goal of Squad Zero is to listen and help each other out.

Hop in our discord and give it a try out! https://discord.gg/7BVhucU If you can't be 1st, be 0th.
Now I know I will probably get a lot of hate for this, but is there any chance of Squad coming to PS4. The game would obviously have to be completed and various other things but the PS4 being the most powerful console, I believe it might just handle it. The reason I ask this is because most of my friends own a PS4 and some of them own PC's which are not powerful enough to run the game, I will definitely be buying this game on PC, its just I would rather play with my friends on PS4. Any feedback would be nice, just don't hate. Hail Lord Gaben.
Hello fellow followers of Squad I've been playing Squad for a while now and the game has changed immensely from when I first started which is beyond amazing. Though constantly changing I just think some mechanics could be added. My main focus for this post is I want the developers of Squad to PLEASE add a squad up function, it may already be in the works (I don't know) but something like this would be amazing. What I mean is some way for me and some friends to easily through the menu crate a lobby/session and join a server together it would make things so much easier. Instead of my friend saying "Join blank server its under blank, with blank, number of people" sometimes when I join a server with a friend one of us does not get in or we get put on separate teams and hope it will let us switch teams with out throwing off balance. Hopefully this is added soon and what do you think or how can my idea even be improved?
It doesn't make sense that we're all joining servers piecemeal, one at a time, each player individually, especially not if you have friends that you play with on the regular. This game is called squad, and it only makes sense that we have a match making system to let us join as squads. I have a group of guys that I play with regularly, but it's a hassle trying to get into a server together to all play in the same squad. Often times, the team-auto-balance system in the server will force half of us onto an opposing team, so we're stuck waiting for players to leave/join the server and shuffle through the system in order to play together as a squad. It doesn't make sense at all. So the idea here is that squads are like profiles, they are persistent across servers. You create a squad like you'd create a player profile, and load it up with your buddies that also play squad. Then you'd search for a server and join altogether, filling a "squad slot." Think of it like the matchmaking systems that are in place in many console games, but instead of matching individual players, it matches squads with the best servers that have available slots. This would facilitate more team work, because players would be playing with people they regularly want to play with - players they listen to, respect, and understand. Of course, if you don't have any friends that play squad, there would also be open squads to join. But this idea could be extended to also allow whole persistent teams of multiple squads. I am in a group of 53 guys that play this game. It would be great if we could all join a server together.
I am having a lot of trouble joining game with someone that i want to play with. It is especially difficult to join the same server with 10-15 players at a time. Does anyone know of a easy solution to this because i find myself spending at least an hour trying to join everyone on the right server. What would be the best way to do this?
Good Day to all I don't know if the question has been raised already or if this will implemented in future. I see my friends logging in to Squad via Steam yet it will not show on what server they are playing. When will this function be implemented. I know the game is still in Alpha. Regards Franko
If it isn't too much trouble, I'd like to be able to more easily play on the team that my friends are on. I get that team stacking was an issue in the last build, but now it's nearly impossible to get on the same team as my friends that were also playing. If we both happen to hop in the server at the same time, 98% of the time it will split us up(for balancing, of course). The only way we could possibly get on the same team is if we left completely and just watched the number of players go up or down, but even then it would usually put us back on the same team. It's even harder when you've got a group of friends you want to have a squad with. Any thoughts how features that could make joining the same team or grouping up with friends less frustrating? Maybe some sort of party system or a way to trade sides with another player if he or she agrees.
So, I expect the game's going to have that cozy PR feel and there was no better way to play then with a tight group of friends in a squad. What's down the line for playing with friends? Clans? Joining a game from a party of a few players? Ideally I'd enjoy having a clan or group of sorts ingame where you could invite a bunch of players from it and tell the game tell the game you all want to find a match all together in the same squad or fireteam. Whatever makes it hastle free to all play together.
Sup' everyone, So I think that a lot of the things that I will talk about in this post might have been talked about between the devs, but I havent seen anything about it on the forums. So what i'd like to talk about is the -Main menu & options -Add friends in-game -Create squads First of all i'd like to talk about the options i'd personally like to see in the main menu, and for that I have made a small concept main menu. ((BACKGROUND IMAGE BY MELBO SEE THREAD http://forums.joinsquad.com/topic/250-melbos-thread-of-war-stuff/ )) Above you can see a main menu as I personally love them. Giving a lot of information and options in a clean format. First of all we've got the option 'quik match' which I think everyone is familiar with, this just allowes you to instantly join a game on your own if you do not want to join a specific server / just dont care. You would be able to select an amount of players, which mode, and which maps you would like to play. After that we have the option 'play with friends' which also kind of speaks for itself, this would allow you to create a squad and invite friends before you even enter a server. This way you could just hang around in the lobby waiting for all your friends to arrive and drop into action together. The squadleader (creator of the squad) can invite,kick, and give other players the right to invite so they can invite their friends. I'd like to see the option to invite friends in-game so I dont have to add them on steam if I don't want to. After that we have the good old 'server browser' no explanation needed there. Im sure it will include all information and options such as 'history' (shows previously played servers) 'favorites' (shows servers you have added to your favorit list) 'friends' (shows the servers your friends are playing on) and ofcourse the 'internet' (shows all servers) which should show your ping, if its locked or not , current players / max players, mode, map name, how far in to the round the server is, and maybe even if a friend is playing on it, or if you have previously joined it. Than we have the 'statistics' option, now I dont know if this game will keep track of your kills, deaths, revives, if it will have leaderboards of some sort? But if it did, i'd definetly like to have the option to see all your stats, maybe even your friends stats. The option 'manual' speaks for itself too, i'd like to have a link on the main menu to a .pdf or a forum thread with the full manual in there. An option 'forums' to quickly reach the forums from the main menu. 'credits' and 'quit' explain themselves. Besides all of this, i'd love to see this image from melbo be the background on the game menu. I absolutely frikin love this image it would just need a few adjustments. I know most of this stuff is obvious, and will probably be in the game, anyways let me know if you like or dont like some of the options I gave here, and if you miss anything on this list. cheers, TickL Me Tibbers
