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) 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.

Kraus posted a topic in General DiscussionHello All, Can Server Admins forbidden SL to Rush the enemy first Flag at the beginning of new Round?
The legacy group is inviting anyone who wants to come try out an event hosted on our Training server. The event will be a Rush game mode. Much like battlefields Rush mode but in squad. Defenders get light vehicles and supplies, the further back the Attackers push the more equipment the Defenders get. FOB's will of course take place of the MCOM system. Attackers attack FoBs in stages. Commanders will be present to direct flow of action and to keep players inside playable areas and away from back FOBs. Defenders will have time to set up defenses while attackers think of routes and tactics. We try to keep the maps RU v US for kit evenness. BTR is only available for the last FOB. Open top humvees for US, no CROWS except last FOB assault. Flag caps are to be ignored and tickets reserved as much as possible. WHEN: Saturday at 7pm CST EVERY WEEK (new game modes will be tried, always open to suggestion) WHERE: Always at the - [USA] Legacy Training | Vilayer.com - server under the Customs Tab DISCORD for the Op. USAlegacy.xyz or https://discord.gg/Wazp8r3 We hope to see new people come out to try it and become regulars. The server will be tightly moderated, goofing around and disobeying game direction will result in permanent expulsion. Come to the event with a mindset of teamwork and cooperation, I mean, why else would you own Squad?
Greatings community, Here are some ideas that I was discussing with some friends while playing the game regarding the current state that its in. I know everything is subject to change and that the devs are adding more and more functions in the game while we move on. I'd love to see some feedback and perhaps some discussions regarding this topic. The main points are: adding an adrenaline like dimension in the game for vaulting, stamina, rushing/sprinting, drawing weapons for quicker, more realistic immersion ! Vaulting: We all know that there is no vaulting in the game right now and i've read some topics that this will most likely be implemented as the game development moves on.To jump over a 50cm wall we have to press jump and duck to cross like back in cs1.6. This usually fails because your stamina is depleted or on a low point due to crossing a field. Imagine a situation where you get shot at in real life, and you have to make it over a wall or ledge or w.e. You'd jump over that mofo and even risk breaking something to prevent getting killed. Closing in on my point now; the devs should add some sorcery in to make sure once you get shot at, you gain some kind of adrenaline and the stamina isnt affected while you jump/duck over a object for cover. Ideas:vaulting does not affect staminavaulting affects stamina, but lower the penalty from 33% or 25%, whatever its at right now to something more acceptable like 5%or vaulting affects stamina while not suppresed/being shot at but it does not affect stamina once you are being shot at. In this version, suppression adds adrenaline and your soldier will make sure to get to safety like in real life. This option would be the most realistic imho. You could go even further in to immersion and add a legs damage penalty by shot wounds or falling from height wich slows the vaulting animation by 50%. But we are getting to deep now, suppresion and adrenaline would be a nice implementation in further gamesthe last option could be an option if vaulting is not added in the game, here you would gain the adrenaline mode once you are being shot at and stamina is not affected by jumping. This would however break the game once you snipe / engage from a distance and opfor could just get unlimited jumping. Making it to hard to hit the enemy.All in all, vaulting and adrenaline would be nice.Running/sprinting for life: Drop the current run / sprint mode as it is right now and add the folowing:normal 'run' (movement by arrow keys)running (movement by arrow keys + shift*) *=default keybindingsI'd love to see the some extra rush mode during a run where you could gain an extra 10/15% sprint speed. I honestly think this would add another dimension in chasing/closing in on objectives to make sure you arrive where your headed towards alive, not dead or wounded. Mix classes up a little and modify the run/sprint speed for every role. An rpg eqquiped with 4 rockets would definitely add loads of weight and should prolly run slower then a normal soldier. Im not sure if this is already ingame. I have not seen any differences in running with classes. Changing weapons: This one should be a dead give-away and probably is suggested many times since the weapon change animations are ruining the whole game. Other games implement a fast animation to secondaries but why not set a new standard, and let other industries follow our example. Instead of having a four second animation from RPGs to your m4/ak/any other weapon. Add the folowing; yes, adrenaline, once again, since this would improve the flow and immersion alot. Once being shot at, your switching/animation greatly increases by as much as something like 50%. Set a difference between switching from RPGs to rifle, this should take longer since an RPG is big as f#ck. However switching from your rifle to pistol could be faster!my second idea would be totally awesome. See to it that theres an option to drop a weapon by pressing some button like 2 times while you are in an animation. When switching from your rpg to pistol in a firefight, you'd drop that fkin bazooka and get to your makarov as QUICK as possible.Third idea is that drawing pistols should be increased if spec ops roles are introduced in the future. Trained special forces could have the ability since they are trained to do something fast. Thats about it for now guys. Im sorry if i mentioned some ideas which might be posted before me, if so, please copy the link and ill delete the idea from my post in an edit. Feedback and support (if you like it). Disclaimer: Sorry for bad Engiesh, it are my the second language!
Hey guys, I haven't played Squad yet, but I'd like to know a bit about how high is the penalty for dying. Basically how quickly after dying can you get back to the spot where you died and fight again. I'd prefer the penalty to be quite severe, since that's pretty much the only way to force players to play carefully and to communicate and play as a team. I wouldn't like players to just be running around carelessly or trying to be Rambo in every fighting situation. Perfect example of high death penalty would be DayZ, you have so much to lose if you die there that it just gives you this real adrenaline rush when you're in a shootout or any other dangerous situation. Also if anyone can tell me if developers prevented those sorts of behavior(careless rushing) from players in some other way, I'd appreciate that, thank you! -Matija
