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. Section II: Forum Signatures §1 Signature Dimensions
To avoid clutter, please make sure your signature (if you choose to have one) does not exceed the following size limit: 350x150 pixels. Your signature may consist of images, user bars and text elements, as long as the total size does not exceed 550 x 200 pixels. A small tolerance will be given, but any signature larger than the limit may at any time be deleted without prior warning. If you are not sure whether your signature is acceptable, please PM a moderator. §2 Signature Content
All rules of section 1 fully apply to your signature. We will remove signatures or parts of signatures without notice if they violate the forum rules, and infractions may be given. §3 Animated Signatures
Please refrain from using animated .gifs as signatures, they distract and clutter the forum. Section III: 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.

B-Team Raiders is a North American Squad group under the umbrella of B-Team Gaming, a variety gaming group that's been around since 2009. We're actively seeking new members to join us for Squad in both casual and competitive events. We play (almost) nightly around 9pm - 1am Central. We've fought closely alongside other prominent NA clans, such as FFO, SWF, CoG, ROAR, aR, and many others, and have made friends with all. We've partaken in North American Squad (NAS) events multiple times now and are looking to keep that going as well as join in on other competitive scrims and events. In order to do this, we need more regular members! If the following appeal to you, please consider dropping in our Discord for a night of pubs to get to know you: Nearly all mature, 21+ year-old members. (strongly preferred, nobody under 18 will be accepted) Microphone required (should be obvious, but stating it regardless) Able to be competitive/serious when needed, but also able to turn that off and be relaxed and friendly. No milsim roleplay. No "ranks". No power trips. Just team-oriented fun both casual and competitive. Macro-oriented strategy: able to do what needs to be done for the TEAM, whether that be attacking aggressively to block enemy caps, running interference on supply routes, or capping the safe/early points, running logis, and defending in depth, regardless if that means a good looking scoreboard/exciting gameplay or not. No formal membership process. Just come play with us for a while, be cool, and stay regular and you'll be a "member" in no time. Discord: https://discord.gg/bt Post in the #dmz chat and tell us you came from the forums and we'll get you authorized.

Shortfox posted a topic in Teams & ClansHello, My friend, mafiaconfidant, and I are looking for a few members to play Squad together. We tend to play on USA Bloodbath during the weekday evenings (I squad lead, he tends to be medic). We've had a lot of fun with just the casual pick-up matches, but we are hoping to have the opportunity to participate in community organized "fight nights" which require a full 9-person squad to join (like the CCFN event this Saturday). We both have around 150-200 hours of playtime and are still trying to improve our skills, while still keeping the environment friendly and fun. If you don't feel too committed to join a clan, but wish to participate in these community events as well, send me a message through this forum, through steam (id: shortfox), or feel free to join "Team Supreme" when we play on Bloodbath (we are on central/eastern US timezone). Thanks for the consideration!

38th Infantry Division Power in Numbers We are a clan that focuses on having fun over anything else. Although we consider ourselves a casual clan, we do like to keep order. Therefore, we do have hierarchy, awards, and strive to play in a realistic manner. You do not have to be great at the game to join us, you just need to have some experience playing Squad and you need to be able to listen to your commanding officer. There will be scheduled dates and times where we will get together in order to play Squad. You will not be required to attend all of these events. However, we will remove you from the roster if we feel you are becoming inactive. Also keep in mind that Squad is not the only game that we play. Interested? Join our Teamspeak server. 38thinf.teamspeak3.org
Welcome to the Renegades, most of you have probably played with us in-game and know how we work. For those of you who don't know us allow me a brief second for an introduction. The Renegades are a loose-tactic military based unit. We started in Arma 3 in Invade and Annex as a Delta Operator Team who utilize actual military tactics to the point of effectiveness in-game, discarding the tactics that do not work within the digital world. With this we established a very effective combat fighting unit who practice both guerrilla warfare and conventional attack methods. We are a veteran-based community who runs a rank-less structure playing casually and competitively. We enforce a politically incorrect environment where "Offended" is not a word in our vocabulary. First and foremost we ask that everyone treat each other as family. As most of us are apart of a great brotherhood known as Veterans. - WE ARE NOT REALISM, WE ARE EFFECTIVENESS - WE ARE NOT CALL OF DUTY LEETS, WE USE TEAMWORK - WE ARE NOT GOING TO DEMAND ALL OF YOUR TIME, JUST PLAY! We currently don't have a website due to the fact that NOONE WILL EVER USE IT. We all play and talk on teamspeak or these forums. ============================================================== APP: AGE: IN-GAME NAME: GAMING EXPERIENCE: ARE YOU A VETERAN?: =============================================================== STEAM GROUP: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/renegadeveteran Teamspeaks Joint Force: ts35.gameservers.com:9307 Renegade Tactical: ts73.gameservers.com:9249
Avoh posted a topic in Teams & ClansHappy holidays, We've just recently joined the Squad community and are hoping to provide the US side of the community with some high quality, high fps low ping servers. Our first server is 50 slots and based in New York, named [F.3.G.] Community: Insurgency/Skirmish Maps ***** http://squad-servers.com/server/206/ ***** ************** We're looking for community feedback into the types of maps they'd prefer playing on our server. Leave a reply and tell us what kind of map rotation you'd like to see! ************** We're testing the waters right now to decide if we'll need to get more servers up and running and are hoping the community will grow enough to be able to use what we hope to offer in the future. This server welcomes casuals and hardcore tacticians alike. We have active admins and will help anyone with any problems they encounter. We're aware of the issue the community seems to be having, as indicated by litoralis, regarding new players to this type of tactical shooter and are hoping to give them a place to play and experience the game as intended. Current Admins [steam]: Avoh, Fulysic We're also welcoming the community to join our giveaway group. You can find it here: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/FulysicGGG We perform random, event, player of the week and holiday giveaways for all the games on steam. It's also a good way to keep in contact with game server administration! Hope to see you soon! Regards, - Fulysic's Giveaways Administration
I know there is going to be a witch hunt of sorts about this idea, be that as it may: This is fairly genuine concept no matter how sillily (silly-ly) it may be presented. --- One of the banes of a community that needs to maintain its standards is players that don't respect what people are trying to build, as far as making the game what it should be. There is a possible use for them, though. Before you complain that we should be changing the world with love teaching them to play, I'm going to be referring to the guys who continuously like to spam mumble, wander around on their own with their group of friends, having too much fun for the serious minded. They want to play, but they don't want to be dragged into all the squad/teamwork/communicate/etc. world that we know and appreciate. They've been shooting shit up at main, not listening to the admins, spamming, stealing assets, and just being happy tards. The admin is pretty much ready to kick them off the server. But there is one more place for them. The land of exile, but not cut off from the world. A paradise some could call "Port Royal", where all thieving cut-throats could co-exist in the underworld of "casual gaming". --- "What is it?" It's a third faction that is not part of the main battle (outlaws, partisans, anarchists). A faction with: no lawsno restrictionsno enforced squadsno commanderno victory/lossno real weapons of value (Imagine if I had a real weapon!)no objectivesno saving grace (Admins won't hear your cries... Really, they won't. The admin has kicked you, but get to play where you won't do much damage until someone needs your spot on the server.)infamous reputationno real assets of valueprecedence for auto-kick in case of a full serverauto-admined (5 tks, afk, making room for a new player on full server, etc. = kick) "That's just wrong on so many levels!" I know that, but would you rather them be in your squad, or team? They don't want to listen or learn or are not in the mood. You would rather kick them, yes? A sensible admin would have kicked them long ago. But they are there, they did show up, they did bring their friends, they are probably drunk or reeeaallly high on something (oregano, we know...). Why not let them populate the server? They can be auto-kicked if the server needs to make room for players. "Is it worth the time?" No! At least not in ANY alpha, beta, or early-access stages. "Will it benefit us in any way?" It will save the serious players from the pain of dealing with them, and still allow those casuals to have some fun. "I wanna play, but just want to chill, find people to kill, and not be policed to death." "What do they get, considering the list you presented above seems to take everything away?" a few crappy rifle optionsa grenadepink smokea knifea few patchesCP radio deployable (which actually plays Nyan Cat, and Narwhals [anything destroys it]). It can't be used for spawns but may not be deployed close to another.a militia/insurgent kit (depending on the OPFOR so there'no confusion.)"What if they bother us serious players?" Kill them. You're doing us all a favor. "Why did you bother suggesting this?" Because I know that sometimes you want to be in the action, but you're too damn drunk to be useful. Think of this as the "Recycle Bin" before actually getting removed from the harddrive. Kicks get sent to the Recycle Bin until the server is full.
