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.

Hi, So I have played SQUAD before on a free weekend and I had no issues. However I have recently purchased it and to put it simply, it's unplayable. I can't join any servers, (Disconnects me from queue after 10 seconds), and when I go into training I run in place or I move forward at a snails pace. I also try and jump and I go up in an almost jittery fashion almost like I was majorly lagging. I know it's not frame lag as when I stand still and look around there is no frame drops. The trees move smoothly and my gun fires smoothly also. Also to note I had a message pop-up when I first started the game saying "EasyAntiCheat engine did not load properly, you may not have access to multiplayer". I have restarted the game multiple times before then and it never showed that message again. To be safe I went into the folder where EasyAntiCheat is stored and repaired it using the setup application. I have also tried deleting the Squad file in Appdata. I had seen that by disabling steam inventory in the game settings, it may have fixed the issue. But I know this isn't my issue either cause I haven't received any items from the game yet. So can anyone help me with this? *Computer Specs* GTX 1060 6GB 16GB DDR4 RAM I7 6700HQ 2.60GHz
Hello guys, I was trying to play Squad one day but I suddenly could not join any servers, it would launch me into the match and kicked me 2 seconds later, inbetween the 2 seconds I could see a message saying "EAC Kicked: ????" I couldnt tell what was the last part as it was too fast. Afterwards, it would send me back to the main menu saying "Server Lost Connection"I tried to google all these problems,1. Tried to uninstall EAC and install.2. Tried to delete Squad from %LocalAppData%3. Tried to reinstall.4. Tried to verify game cache5. Allowed both EAC and Squad through firewall.Reinstalling did help me once, I lasted for 1 match before having the same problem again.I repeated the 5 things mentioned above only to finally give up, and I almost wanted to reformat my computer just to see if it works. There was one more solution tho, it was to launch Squad_Launcher without Steam. I did it and a message window popped up upon launching. "Forbidden Tool Detected: Windows Magnifier" Like... WTF man. So I tried to disable it by going through a tutorial to change the file name. Didn't work.I remembered the message "EAC Kicked: ????" and I was curious as to what it says. I decided to record the incident using OBS and went to the timeframe using Adobe Premier. To my horror, the message was "EAC Kicked: Banned"Knowing that I did not hack in any way, I checked my settings to see my ban status, and I was clean without VAC or Game bans. So it has to be an error on their part. I have emailed EAC for a ban appeal and I'm hoping that they will lift it ASAP. I spent hours trying to fix this issue only to find out about this.Hopefully the rest having the same problem as I am will finally get an answer, as most of the "Fixes" didn't work. EDIT: No replies from them so far... I'm so pissed off that I can't play this game.

Hi, I have bought this game this weekend (Steam). After I played the free weekend without any issue, I am not able to connect to any server today... I can join the game and see the serverlist - click on a server - see a queue window, but no position information - and the a server message "Disconnected from queue". Thanks for Help. H-Milch
Hi! It's always difficult to join a server even if the ping is low. Also, when I switch from server browser to custom server browser and back to server browser again, It won't load the list of servers even if I refresh the list over and over. Please help. Thank you!
Snakecharmer posted a topic in Software SupportGood evening all, Sometime around 9 or 10 tonight after playing a few hours today I hopped off for a break. When I went to get back in the action I got the 'server closed connection message'. On every server. I have tried deleting the local app and binaries, verifying the game cache, my 'veteran skins' or whatever have never been turned on and I've never had a single problem with the game. Tried connecting via steam servers, all my drivers are up to date, literally nothing has changed that I'm consiously aware of. I have about 350 hours of great times and great fps with 0 problems now I'm broken :/. Anything else I can do? Never set up a VPN before and I don't get why I should have to all of a sudden? ---------------------------------------- Update: Tried reinstalling easy cheat and shutting down antivirus to no avail. I guess I'm just broken until they release some kind of fix
Hi players! I'm from the Philippines and I don't know anything about Squad aside from what I watch from Youtube. And it's f*&^king awesome! I wanna play it! But I can't seem to find information regarding the following: 1. System requirements 2. How to connect to servers/join sessions. 3. I saw some of the contents in this forum regarding updates and different versions, how do I update mine? 4. Are there any players here who are also from the Philippines? 5. Our internet connections here in the PH is really ****ed up. Will I be able to connect at least in the region of asia? (I have GTA V online and i can play it seamlessly) 6. Can you give me a link for something to read that will be very helpful for a newbie. Thank you! Cheers!
RevanCakes posted a topic in Software SupportHi, I've been trying to get Squad to work, the issue I'm having is that I'm unable to lookup servers on the server list quickly, and I disconnect during the load each time with no success. It takes about 2-3 minutes before the list populates, when I do join a server, I load seeing a bit of the quick guide picture about the controls, but I instantly disconnect with the message "Lost Connection to Server Host". I've been scanning the forum for some time to try and find a solution, nothing I have found has worked including, exceptions to the firewall, reinstalling, turning the firewall off, running as administrator, and a few others. I'm not sure what else should be done to run, the last post I could find on the subject matter was from a month ago saying be patient it'll be worked on with little to no update since. Unfortunately it's getting to the point I'll rather take a refund from Steam and just try again way later, but if anyone has any other ideas or any ways I can submit something to be of practical assistance I would like to do that before I put in the towel. I hope this topic is in the right forum, It seemed appropriate for the issue. Thanks, Revan
Hey guys, Everytime i join a server, doesn't matter which one it is i get kicked out of the server with the message; "Server closed connection" I get this after 1 - 5 minutes of playing on the server. i was asking myself if other people have this problem as well and if there is a fix? Thanks. regards, Hagen
JimmyJazz posted a topic in Feedback & SuggestionsHey. I saw some topics that some guys can't join any server and they get the info "lost connection to the host". My issue is a little diffrent. In 90% of games when the maps goes to the end and the server is changing it I'm getting thrown out of the server with this message. 1/10 games I can continue the game normally afther map change but most of the time I just get out. My screen goes black (but compass from hud is still visuable) and then afther about 1-2 minutes of this view I get to the lobby and "lost connection to the host" appears. My friend which I'm playing with has similar issue but he gets thrown out to desktop. Is it a known bug ? What is the problem ?
Hello everybody, I just launched the new version and tried to connect to one of the most populatd server ( Armafinland.fr [AFI] GER ), after a bit of loading it just send me back to main menu and says "Your connection tot he host has been lost", other server seem to all work fine. Any of you guys have the same problem ? PS: tell me if I'm not in the proper section
