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.

"Squad is an online multiplayer first-person shooter that aims to capture combat realism through communication and teamplay." This is a quote from Squad website describing what Squad is. Will try to keep it short and clean. I have played Squad for 900+ hours now. I play it everyday and since the day one I was wondering why the Developers do not implement these simple things I want to talk about here. I really like the description they wrote answering what Squad is, especially because not much games deliver when they claim to have these features (combat realism, communication and teamplay) but I have lots of confidence Squad will do that IF they get rid of these things I am going to list bellow because they ruin Squad realism and teamplay. I will list problems and possible features in the order from 1 being the most important: 1. Body Momentum - Human body cannot start the sprint instantly. Human body cannot turn around 180 degrees while in sprint. It can't go prone while doing 180 turn in a sprint aswell. If they implement body momentum they will fix moments where when you shoot at the enemy behind his back and its almost a clear kill BUT he zig zags like a musquito or turns towards you in an instance and goes prone and shoots you in the head. This is arcadey and gamey and not realistic in any form, shape or way. FIX IT. <---FIXED SINCE VERSION 7 2. Movement Speed - Apparently they will slower the movement and sprinting speed after they introduce the vehicles. Because now its ridiculous. You can cross 100 meters in 10 seconds, which means you can cover 10 meters in 1 second. Ridiculous, arcadey, immersion braking. Human body under a load of military equipment cannot move that fast, nor can start the sprint in an instance. Movement speed should be like in PR or very similiar. FIX IT <---FIXED SINCE VERSION 7 3. Way of the land - In Squad we can move on cliffs edge like its nothing, fix it, its explotable, arcadey, gamey and immersion braking. Imagine having fixed points 1 and 2, and having huge impact on stamina when moving up hills (like it should be ofcourse) + make it impossible to move over cliffs or give us a good old rope from PR for that. Running and sprinting in a river shouldn't be possible. All that equals to a proper tactical environment, that makes you think and use your squad assets properly. 4. Respawn Timer (optional but nice) - It would be good to punish the players from doing these gamey, arcadey movements, like running like mosquitos in the open and then getting shot and respawning again, while the other team is facing wave after wave of CS:GO gamers. Up the timer a little maybe. <---FIXED SINCE VERSION 7, FOB LOGISTIC SYSTEM 5. Name Tags - Again, gamey arcadey and immersion braking seeing name tags popping out everywhere across your screen. Removing it would force players to slow down, check the map more often to see where is the frontline and where the friendly forces are. Maybe put this as a server setting because I am sure CS:GO players will cry a river. By doing this you can create "Hardcore" server types. 6. Option To Lock a Squad - Wouldn't change the gameplay, but it would make a SL world a much easier place to get by. Feel free to continue the points... Cheers Rain EDIT: ***VERSION 7 JUST DID A GREAT JUSTICE TO THE GAME SINCE THIS THREAD WAS OPENED***
I saw no threads similiar to this so I opened one. This is one of the worst gameplay videos I have seen for Squad. This weird guy is playing Squad with Console Controller. His commentary is sooo wrong on many levels, they do not talk in the game to their squad members but on teamspeak aswell. The guy has 69 thousand Subscribers on youtube, how is that even possible? ***Literally CANCER*** Check it out:
