      Forum Rules   07/06/2016

      Introduction   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.

  1. OMG BEFORE YOU TELL ME SOME BULLSHIT, READ THE POST! okay, so, there seems to be a bug on the test server where the bullets on the hip fire are literally no where near the center of the screen and are consistantly shooting (accurately I may add) to the bottom of the Xhair, not sure what was changed or why but this does not seem normal to me whatsoever, I understand that the hip fire bla bla blah, is't supposed to be accurate but it IS accurate, just in the wrong place. (taken in a- As you can see, the center of my screen is not where my bullet landed and to the left of the landed point you can see many accurate shots have been made with the hipfire, I believe this to be a bug. Also, while laying down you are unable in most places to shoot from the hip.
  2. Better late then never....from your longest standing fan and player. Also posted on Reddit as a respons. I sympathize with some in Opening Post. Sad to re... https://www.reddit.com/r/joinsquad/comments/cg251r/my_comment_on_from_a_veteran_casual/eug63oq?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share I'm a founder with +3000 hours and for the first time experiencing a loss of appetite for game. I am a comp player in Mumblerines and an old PR player. Played both games from very first versions. Think I have a solid reference base to debate from. Buddy RP is my main gripe. That a fragmented team, at any given time, can come together as a full team from any individual fragments angle. That should be enough said really to convey how unsuitable this change is for gameplay. Yes it does puts players faster back in action, in general. But at what cost!? Both new game modes TC and Destruction are from my standpoint broken. You can't plan for nme movement in a logical way. A full team can appear anywhere, at any time really. We have outplayed many teams now just jumping RPs. That actually makes for less fighting those games. And the chees sensation is real. A clanmate described it best. "TC with BRP is kinda hard to maintain properly atm... cuz its so easy to change the flow, when you finally managed to make progress and push somewhere, and while you're capping just one HEX , full team appears out of no where (read BRP) and just throws you back and makes all your effort vain. Making big TC layers 1.5+ hours long" A light save in pubbing is that BRP is not exploited more. It's not intuitive so new SLs don't use them fully. Some refuse to use them out of morale reasons. Love that. However, it will catch on. Also worth mentioning: Who needs FOBs when we have buddy RP? - But you only get three mags and a bandage (as a minimum)! *Stopped no one ever from capping a flag or digging down a radio. THE objectives. For comp I predict it will be devastating. For my enjoyment if nothing else. It will be played, it will have action, but it will be dumb. Jumping flags with teams via BRP. It is truly unearned ground. Driving out with a logi and building is earned ground. And you can't abandon a FOB without the risk of losing tickets, as you can with a RP. It's a gamble, an investment with a FOB. DEVs have spent so much resources on creating buildable assets, and now we use them even less. Don't get it. That would have been my preference of approach towards fixing what BRP was intended for, and did fix to be fair. Promote FOB use with tricks and securing that there always is a transportation vehicle in main. Gained the same but not lost what we have done. Second gripe would be the visual aspect of sped up movement. I now get a Benny Hill sensation. Didn't like that show so the reminiscence is unwelcome hehe. Don't mind at all top speed traversing between flags. But take a few rested players close to each other moving around and you'll see what I mean. Shooting at zig zag nme with penguin syndrome (leaning left/right) at ranges coupled with the desynch and the hitreg issues makes for a bad experience in my view. Disclaimer, I only game. I know little to nothing about how this stuff affects each other from a programming standpoint. Hipfire. Now good even at ranges. I don't ADS nowhere even close to what I used to have to do. Not a fan but not the end of the world either. Concerning voices about deaddead headshots. I would not be in favour of deaddead headshots with current shooting mechanics. Not even sure I'd be in favour of it with any shooting mechanics that doesn't require mastering sway. Yes, DD HS was a thing in PR but that doesn't automatically translate for what is best for Squad. Infinitive revives. Not a fan as is. Dying should have consequences. Many ways to go about that. Have no set preferences, but have ideas. Can debate more on demand. On a personal note. Motherdears (iirc) big Reddit letter, with all DEVs standing behind it, and the declaration of intended gameplay, a year or so back. It is hard not to feel a little cheated with the above mentioned changes and this new path taken. With regards, your village elder Mel. *all respectful comments are welcome and appreciated.
  3. Old annoying bugs

    1.When I see how someone is actually shooting from M4 rifle by burst sometimes i don't hear sound of the shooting, the sound and animation work asynchronously. This is especially noticeable near. 2. I also want to notice that when you are trying to shoot by 1 bullet from m2 browning or NSV then other players hear burst or automatic shooting. 3. Rocket car bug has still not been fixed since A11. 4. Static-SPG LOD bug has been returned in A12. 5. Explosive shells of various automatic cannons(btr-82,Warrior, Bradley etc) are still useless. You don't receive any damage even if it hits two meters of you. Same problem with tank explosive shells. It must kill in 10m radius and wound 20m radius but at the moment you stay alive after 5m radius and don't receive any damage after 10m... 6. There is some strange GAMMA at some maps like Kohat and Gorodok. It is especially noticeable when you are placing radio or something else placeable and it is highlighted by different green color.
  4. Marksman Scopes

    Especially for the US faction, I find it very difficult to play as a marksman using a 2x ACOG scope. I think a lot of people would benefit from a scope with better optics, even if it's a 4x scope. It's hard to spot people as it is.
  5. I think many people should have the same issues as mine. We all know that this game provides 2 FPS modes: hip-fire and aiming down sight where there should be benefits on both modes. Aiming down sight gives players the center of shot, so Hip-fire should have other advantages over Aiming down sight too. However, somethings might be wrongly designed not supporting PC players causing hip-fire in this game to become awkward and a big bias to aiming sight. Since I felt there are too much penalty and unrealistic from doing hip fire, I hope there should be better ways to address these problems. I will list all the problems that I think we all ever encountered in Squad. 1) The recoil in this game is actually accurate but it takes ways "too realistic". In Squad, we control guns at the mouse, not at hand grip. The game should provide Realism that can combined with some sort of Action style to make it fun and comfortable for PC players which I think developers know this concept pretty well. The amount of recoil while Hip-firing in this game is correct in realism but too much for PC players to control. Based on my experience (I experienced M4 and M16), shooters respond to the recoil by their own sense that come from force-feedback of the gun and control the counter-force at the hand grip so it is awkward if PC players have to control that recoil without knowing that sense and have to control the recoil at the mouse. This is not competitive aiming like counter-strike where we have to control the recoil by pulling down mouse. 2) Hip-fire is dizzy like hell. I think developers are going to fix this anyway. In the current version, FPS camera is fixed to the center of the gun then it will shake up and down crazily when players shoot. This is the major cause of why I don't do hip-fire even when I shoot at nothing. In addition, I see not many players are doing suppressive fire on enemies; I think fixing this problem should increase it because it allows players to shoot at empty target more. 3) Lack of realistic recoil feelings while shooting (while aiming sight as well) From my experience, there are 2 effects of recoil that a person encounter when firing a weapon. One is the recoil force that push the gun up, and another one is the recoil force that push into the person's body. In Squad, I can feel only the force of pushing up, but I don't feel the force of being pushed into the character's body by the recoil. I just want to mention that many FPS games nowadays show that force by shaking camera to the right where guns are attached to the shoulder making players to feel the force of being pushed by recoil. Such as Battlefield 3-4-1, Red Orchestra, and even some little pushing to the shoulder in ArmA3. I know that some of these might already be in developer's plans, but as long as I don't see the plan table I think it would be better to mention them. What do you think? PS: English is difficult for me, sorry for some writing.
  6. Wobeling vehicle effect

    All the vehicles should woble back and forth when 50cal or Spg start shooting from the flank side of the vehicle, now these vehicles are sooooo static and far away from the realism. of course when we are shooting from the 50cal on a technical the wobeling effect should make us loose accuracy bcs the aiming sight will start pushing up and thats why insurgency cant burst all their munition in a single round its over heated and they will loose the accuracy. spg should woble after the shot but the wobble not gonna affect the accuracy of the shot bcs it occurs bcs of this single shot. 50cal or any weapon on a toyota shouldnt be equal to a HMV or BTR specially in accuracy one more thing the grenade smoke effect should be slower. Make the speed of the smoke like PR so realistic Thank u Dev team lets make squad more and more realistic
  7. Hi, ​Do you guys have the issue when you crouch behind a cover (sandbags) and you want to shoot over it you hit the sand bag. sitting behind cover is useless like this is you have to stand to shoot over it.

    It would be cool if the decs could think of this to work on when the game is almost out.you could shoot while running but it would be extremely inaccurate eg: your trying to run into a building but there is players blocking your run, so you could shoot to suppress them then make it into the building. Pls put down and added ideas to this down below. Thanks.
