      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.   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.

  1. Assets and FOB Costs

    A simple idea. A FOB will cost more tickets the more assets it has deployed or built in its build zone. I will give an example. Right now a FOB (the radio) costs 20 tickets. It has a 150 meters build radius. Let's say I built 3 HMGs in this zone, I will lose 35 tickets because each HMG will increase the FOBs cost by 5 tickets. Then I build 1 repair station (5 tickets), 1 ATGM (10 tickets) and 2 mortars (5 tickets). Now I have a FOB that costs 60 tickets. Now, developers stated time and time again that some we will be able to destroy some static assets with explosives or large caliber projectiles. Let's assume enemy spotted the ATGM and a MBT destroyed it. Now the FOB costs 50 tickets. So it will go up and down depending on the assets it as active at destroy time. This should give more incentive to defend heavily fortified FOBs and more thoughts to enemies on how should they take out a FOB. Risk and reward correlation.
  2. DISCLAIMER: Yes, I used the search button, but I'd like to show my view on how this could work. With the appearance of shotguns in development, it seems likely that the US/Russian Ground Forces will get a counterpart to the Insurgent Raider kit. As we know, the Raider is best suited to close-quarters, preferably urban combat. We will replicate this with the Breacher, who's main purpose will be clearing indoor areas and corners, as well as destroying obstacles. It's a class that will be invaluable in maps like Al-Basra and Sumari Bala, and useful for clearing points in other maps. This will be one of the specialised classes, like the GPMG kit which I suspect will arrive soon enough. The Breacher would be, like the HAT kit, limited to a certain amount of players per game. I believe 2-4 per team would be a balanced amount. It will be restricted to the US and Russian factions. It would be best if they were unlocked once a team has 15 or more players. Let's go through what a breacher would have.... Primary Weapon (Slot 1): The obvious decision would be shotguns, already shown to us by the development team. However, they are not the only choice we have. What if they also had Sub-Machine Guns? From a developing perspective, having SMGs in an assault class (Raider/Breacher) would be the only way to implement SMGs (apart from special forces). So, just like you can choose from a number of weapons for the rifleman kit, you could choose between a shotgun and SMG for the breacher kit? So what are these weapons? Shotguns: M1014 (USA), KS-23 (Russia) SMGs: MP5 (USA), Vityaz-SN (Russia) Note, for those who desire a seperate USMC faction, the MP-5 could be replaced by the Colt SMG, for variety. Secondary Weapon (Slot 2): Probably same as other classes, no need for a change. Grenades (Slot 3): I'm a bit unsure on this. I think that this kit should lack smoke grenades, as there is little use for it in the indoors. As for fragmentation grenades, 1-2 would be fine. I don't want the class to have too many, because that could make it overpowered, as well as too similar to the Raider Class. Explosives (Slot 4) These will serve as similar purpose as the IED. Their blast radius could allow rooms to be cleared rapidly. It can be used also to destroy player-built fortifications like Hesco walls, roadblocks, bunkers or other emplacements. However, I believe they will become more useful when there are dynamic map elements in the game, such as destructible walls. This would allow a squad to easily create a new avenue of attack into a well defended position. The Breacher should get 1 or 2 of these in their kit. The US would obviously get the C4, while the Russians would probably get the PVV-5A or Semtex. Field Dressing (Slot 5) 2 bandages as with most classes, no need to change it. Wire Cutter (Slot 6) This would replace the shovel. To not waste explosives on razor wire, use this to remove it. Optional: Body Armour This might be something included, although I doubt it. Maybe it would give the user a chance for a bullet to be ignored, and for the damage caused by explosions to be lessened. I'm only including this because It seems interesting, but not necessarily balanced. I thank you for reading this. Please give critical feedback and constructive criticism.
  3. So, like this area on the forums is for, this is just a suggestion. To be completely honest, I'm not totally for it myself (in all aspects), but this is just to branch out ideas. Continuing.... Each squad will have one new class/kit called "fire-team leader (FTL)". This kit would only be available if the squad has more than 6 people in the squad. The fire-team leader would be picked by the squad lead by right clicking on the squad member and pressing "promote to fire-team leader". The fire-team leader would have a separate icon on the map, only visible to the current squad, and not to the entire team, as to avoid cluttering the map with more icons. Fire-team leader would be allowed to set new rallys if 4 people are in the proximity of the FTL. FTL's would be allowed to only mark up to two (2) enemy icons on the map, excluding FOBs/HABs. FTL's would also have binoculars. FTL's would not have access to squad lead chat, but (possibly?!) replace the squad lead chat button to fire-team chat button for FTL's. FTL's do not have to wait for approval in order to enter vehicles, but may not approve vehicles for other squad mates. What do you guys think?
  4. To the developers of Squad, First I want to say that you have created a wonderful game and that I value your dedication to continually adding to the game as time passes. As a veteran that has seen VBIEDS (Car bomb) in action and the pure terror and disruption they cause to operations I feel adding a low manpower cost (1-5 tickets depending on size of vehicle and payload) VBIED that already has explosives embedded in the vehicle and only needs a left click from the driver to detonate would add not only add another level of strategy but be a fun addition and level the playing field between the OPFOR and US forces due to OPFOR having terribly weak vehicles that get shredded by the US Striker. I've noticed most players already try to make them by placing IED's on cars however this is not effective because of the high ticket cost, lag time between cell call and detonation, and the coordination between the Scout and driver to make it happen. I feel that if developed the only way to be able to take one of these down should be by AT weapons carried by soldiers. I've seen these vehicles take high caliber rounds and RPGs ricochet off the armor only to still meet their targets. This addition would place emphasis on combined arms operations and force squads to stick near vehicles to protect them and the squad itself. As a balance I feel AT soldiers should carry 4 rockets. I look forward to your response. More suggestions to follow.
  5. Medic Healing Animation

    With the May 2017 Monthly Recap giving us a vast preview of new animations coming to Squad in the future, I thought I should voice an idea for medic animations. In the animation preview we saw short clips of applying bandages, but we have yet to see what will replace the current healing animation. For now it consist of the medic touching the patient with his hand and by some in an inappropriate manner followed by some lewd comments. So I had the idea that instead of magic hands healing the player, we could have a simple animation of the medic using a saline and/or blood bag to heal players. It would look something like the following pictures: https://www.jigsawmedical.com/wp-content/uploads/hires_070713-F-8769P-227.jpg https://www.army.mil/e2/c/images/2015/05/26/395708/original.jpg The animation would start with the medic inserting the IV needle, then holding part of the tube with one hand and the other holding up the saline and/or blood bag till the patient is fully healed. (Holding the tube and bag would actually put the medic in a very similar pose to the current one when you think about it) I have little to no medical knowledge, but I think this would be somewhat pseudo-realistic and feel a lot more immersive than using the force like some jedi. Saline and blood transfusion would seem to fit in the game when considering the bleeding system and healing basically replenishing the blood loss. Some issues I see with this is that it would be and look somewhat unrealistic to apply it to oneself, and then there is the issue of how it would look when healing slightly hurt players. There could be other animations for that, suggestions are welcomed. Or saline/blood bag could be used only for incapacitated players. If the you devs have other ideas or are currently working on them I wouldn't mind you spilling the beans.
  6. Can we please get individual mute buttons by each players name on the scoreboard (just like in Insurgency), instances like in the video below are getting FAR too common now. You can't get a decent constructive word in at all now at the end of most matches. Quite often squads would like to discuss whether they are playing again and/or making a new squad for the next round. Whenever I encounter mic spam in the game Insurgency I can call up the scoreboard and hit the mute button by that players name. That person then stays muted to me forever (until I unmute him/her). The way I see it if you are going to act like a child at the end of each round and ruin everyone's chance to communicate properly then your voice does not deserve to be heard be me if and when you decide to play properly and communicate in game. I've muted loads of players on Insurgency and have only reaped the benefits of it, there is literally zero downside to it. They can scream and shout to their hearts content and I simply can't hear it. Just to add, it took me 2 hours to upload a 13 second video clip to YouTube on my awful 1MB upload, my life sucks lol
  7. Map Start Suggestions

    So, I know some of these might be far-fetched, but I just wanted to put out a few ideas. Also, I know some of these may not be highly praised, but I still wanted to add some suggestions \ 1) When joining a game while the timer is counting down have cinematic scenes (is that the right wordage?!) Where - for example- you fly by Chinook to the LZ (Start of the map) and jump out when the timer is complete. 2) Allow squad leads to claim vehicles while timer is going down so that precious time is not wasted at spawn approving vehicles (also preventing trolls and people who don't like to listen to their SL's) 3) Have next map vote option in beginning of round 4) Allow squad leaders to "disable" use of certain classes that they do not see helpful to the squad, I.E. Sniper class 5) Do not allow users to spawn at the beginning of the round unless they are in a squad/create a squad 6) Disable Weapons for the first 15 seconds of the game (to prevent trolling/team-killing) 7) Re-design Main spawns so that bigger vehicles spawn on one side and smaller on the other (to prevent possible traffic jams) Think that's all I have for now. What do you guys think?
  8. Feature Suggestion: When finding an enemy FOB radio, the SL gets the option to retrieve/translate Intel from it. This will give the SL a short amount of time to check his map for the approximate location of another enemy FOB (if it exists) as accurate as 4 keypads. Conditions: - SL needs min 2 other Squad members (to help "translate" or "decrypt" the intel if you will) on him to retrieve Intel from the Radio - Optionally, the FOB radio could then be blocked from being destroyed for 1 minute (this will make the decision for the SL tougher: destroy or gather intel, which brings more value?) I believe this will add not only much more realism (enemy radio chatter would naturally give away strategic information) but also makes finding an enemy FOB radio all the more valuable/interesting, while not altering the gameplay too drastically. Thoughts?
  9. It'll be cool to see team \ squad mates carrying or dragging a friendly who's been killed. This could be handy when a group is stuck in a building or compound and you need to drag a dead team mate to cover before you revive them. Maybe you'll have to look at them and press F? Who knows, it's a suggestion.
  10. I know this subject has been discussed before here and there but I wanted to make a clearer proposal and see what the devs think about it. I saw an awful lot of games ending in a brutal and shameless rape stretching during a very long time, resulting in a lot of people simply leaving the server, and I think this feature could fix this problem. So, the idea is to make the main base conquerable if the last flag is taken in AAS. When this happens, the losing team is given 10 or 15 minute to retake the point. When the timer is over, the flags are locked, and every player in the losing team is given one respawn ticket in order for the last remnants to get back to the base. The latter is either already fortified or fortified by the players themselves (I don't know if there would be enough time for this, ). The winning team must take the base like a normal flag and/or eliminate the enemy team. This would be, I think, way more satisfying for both teams. The losers would make one last heroic stand without being shot like rabbits during one hour, and the winners would stick to a more motivating objective. Of course, this raises other questions, like the size and design of the bases and probably others, but overall, I really believe this would make certain games more enjoyable for everybody. So what do you guys think?
  11. New Layouts

    The new big maps are fun to play and it will take us some time to establish the most practical way to win or figure out what works or not in them, which should take 4-5 weeks I think. Rest of the maps are not affected as much as I hoped by the new changes and are still very much parallel to the linearity of the A8 strategies in regards to most practical ways. The biggest factor to break this linearity is to introduce new layouts right now since the amount of tools we are given are limited and seeing A10 will probably be released 4-5 months later, I suggest introducing new layouts like 2 months later to add some new approach to the game and essentially refresh it.
  12. As we all know Squad is a massive multiplayer online combat simulator that we all love. It would be awesome if there was player vs computer gamemode(s) where you can defend a compound or attack one, or clear a town, etc... with computer AI that would be randomly generated, and or implement a in game mission editor.
  13. I've bin searching for this topic on the forums and reddit etc, can't find anything about it so feel free to correct me. But one thing i have bin missing from Sqaud is the option to change the gun from from STD to ALT that is in PR https://puu.sh/u0re7/dee47dad91.png Since it is really nice to have the option to remove say only the optic on a gun in that specific roll. personally speaking i just do not use optics, as much as i can avoid it. One reason is that i just like iron sights, and the other is because it takes a lot of space on the screen. And it gives you big blind spots if you are not aiming down sight with optics. Example when not aiming down sight: https://puu.sh/u0swe/795361d7ed.jpg https://puu.sh/u0srj/266fe905c9.jpg https://puu.sh/u0syn/fceb1018c4.jpg So if it is not planned already, i'm suggesting bring back the option on few of the rolls to have a basic rifle with no optics. Example for rolls who i can see it useful for SL, gren, medic, LMG
  14. I have a request of a feature-addition: Multiple times I find myself annoyed not knowing, what the squad-leaders have been coordinating, prior to the set up of my own squad. Vehicle assignment, as well as movement between the squads, would be nice to know prior to entering a squad. I believe an addition of the feature, of everyone being able to listen (but not transmitting) in on SL-/command-net, when loaded in, and the count-down has initiated after map-change, would be beneficial -not only for the squad leaders, but also for the understanding of the coordination between the different teams. This feature should of course be "nulled", after the count-down has reached 0, and the round begins; meaning that you should be an SL to be able to listen- and transmit on command-net in the rest of the match. I don't know if I am the only one who have thought of this, or who thinks this needs to be implemented. I think we need this though. Thanks, VALROK.
  15. It's simple, do it like in RNL.(Resistance and Liberation mod). When you get supressed ( especially by an MG ), your hands start shaking, you can bearly aim at anything with the sights , unless you have a squad leader in some area around you to dampen that effect. I think this would be a nice enhancement to encourage teamwork and discourage lone-wolfs. Simply ease that supression effect if there are more of your squad members and/or leader nearby, this way you are adding realism and making people play tactical, and also makes sense from a logical point of view ; people get scared/frightened, and having buddies nearby helps.
  16. Created this thread after a nice discussion on the /r/joinsquad subreddit. Would like to hear additional suggestions and feedback on the ones presented here. The current icons for especially vehicles and enemy positions can be confusing. I suggest to replace these confusing graphic markers with the much clearer but slightly harder to learn NATO symbols. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=165876618 here is a quick reference guide for those not familiar with the system. These symbols once acquainted with allow for very rapid identification and familiarization with the friendly and enemy forces in the Area of Operations. For implementing this I would suggest giving players the option to choose between the NATO symbols or graphic symbols in the options menu. The game Wargame Red Dragon has a similar system and the vast majority of players from 100+ hours to people in their first few games all prefer the NATO system. Below a few examples of both systems: A second thought is the revised map mechanics, inspired by games like Firewatch which have an innovative approach to the map (see image) where it is a physical inventory item. In this way you wouldn't have a SL standing around looking at nothing. Also of course this increase the risk of looking at the map for SL's. This physical map case would be the map in a physical representation with the friendly and enemy units drawn upon it like currently already implemented. So in case the person dies the enemy would just see an empty paper like the map on the start of the round. A final thought is the revision of the display mechanics, instead of squad members' mini maps showing the individual location of teammates in other squads it would just show the center of mass of this squad. Thus pushing the need of communication and local chat communication (i'm not sure about this but would love to hear other's thoughts.)
  17. Right now, any map the US has a CROW they can utterly dominate. Many accounts of foliage no rendering at long range, different geometry so they can spot people from long range. Not to mention it's a 50 cal with a long range zoom. On a specific map (the one with north/south DC, forgot the name) The US utterly massacres militia by hitting the hills east of DC and having 50 cal overwatch over the entire map as far as the C column of grids. This is ridiculously brutal and nobody can get anywhere near the hmmvw to hurt it. When we do hurt it, the CROW takes 5 RPGs and still doesn't go down (probably a repair station nearby since it's the meta to superfob those hills to the east and completely destroy the entire west 2/3rds of the map) Can we please balance this? Either fix the rendering, reduce the zoom, or make it worth 30 tickets. It's far more effective than the BTR in just about any situation other than transporting troops, no reason it can't have the cost associated. edit: the main issue is getting shot from a kilometer or more away through all kinds of foliage (and solid cover) from something you can't even see (even with optics most of the time, you just see the tracers) it's just brutal on a whole other level and contributes to the phrase "Playing US is easy mode"
  18. From the threads I've been reading people are really touchy about weapon sway, zoomed sensitivity, and headbob. To begin this "rant" I should note that I do understand that everything is kinda hacked together at the moment and is all subject to change. I believe that we need zoomed/scoped sensitivity. Realism be damned, Playing PC games gets you used to a specific sensitivity. As of now the sensitivity "changes" when zooming in making it very difficult to get used to aiming which isn't raising the skill cap, it only makes it more random and frustrating. The general method of scoped scaling is 1.0 That means if your scope zooms in 20% then your sensitivity slows down 20%. As of right now it's "broken" by not having this mechanic you zoom in 20% and your sensitivity doesn't change which means it would actually be 20% higher. Your mouse movement feels like its snapping around a grid jumping a few pixels in each direction when you try to barely move it. The current view bobbing for zooming in is very strange and inconsistent. When you are scoped your gun sways around randomly in every direction unpredictably. You might be breathing heavily running a short sprint but your gun isn't fixed to your head. Your head moves around while your scope is steady. I'm not saying weapon sway is a bad thing but it adds this clunky randomness which I think defeats the purpose. I think it needs a smaller radius it can sway within and not drift so violently from side to side, rather it should either be moving fast consistently when you've got low stamina or slow consistently when you're high on stamina. I'm sorry to jump all over but I needed to bring this up. If anyone is confused by my crazed ramblings I can record a few current examples and Create a proper scoping mechanic and what I'd believe to be an ideal amount of weapon sway that feels realistic while not removing too much control from the player. I'll do it in UE3 if I can.
  19. So currently when someone goes down, they don't really know how long they've been bleeding/until they bleed out. Some SL's are so crass as to suggest mass suicide to redeploy somewhere else. My suggestion is the following and I think it will solve many problems currently associated with being down and wasting those ever so important tickets. Currently when you're being healed a graphic appears bottom center with a color representing status. When you're down everyone sees a ticking bleeding symbol in a similar fashion. I suggest making what's visible to everyone else, also visible to the downed player by means of putting it right where the "being healed" graphic normally is. This includes knowing when he's been bandaged (the blood drop turns to a heal symbol and the timer stops ticking around the circle) and finally he already knows when he's being healed. The above would give the downed player awareness in addition to checking for nearby medics on the map, to gauge his chances and make a more informed decision. This is technically another suggestion, but if they give up before at least half the bleed timer has passed, hit them with a 30sec penalty to their spawn timer. For people who think suicide redeploys are smart, or who give up within seconds of dying after whining medic every second, and so on.
  20. like the title says. are the devs gonna add some features that when a bleeding allies passed out, you can pull him to safe spot as a medic or any role just to add realism? happy to know if they are gonna add that , best of luck in the field mates!
  21. My suggestion is to add a engineer role that can build structures OUTSIDE of a FOB. -would spawn with build points. 300-500 points maybe. Just enough to put up some basic defenses or a single HMG bunker. -could replenish build points by going near a FOB. -would be equipped with a shovel so he could build his own defenses while the rest of the squad can provide cover or help, their choice. Cons of this role- -pointless, In alot of situations outside of a FOB you are moving too much to stop and build. - Wasted spot. As in the squad could use a grenadier or AT soldier but someone is using engineer instead. A fix to this is that the ENG role could be like the medic, not a support role. What do you guys think? (Picture not related just some eye candy)
  22. Improvised armored cars are very common to current Middle East conflict. I think some kind of pickup with armor plates would be perfect APC for Insurgent fraction. Or something like big armored truck with sponson turrets on this video:
  23. Freecam spectator mode

    now before you say NO, hear me out. A freecam spectator mode would help out a lot of creators to make cinematic movies/shots for videos or just really pretty screenshots to show off the game. And all that without having to rent a server because not everyone can afford that. With the freecam tool to help people capture these cinematics could possibly help advertise the game through new variety of content. (ofc following that would be a normal spectator mode, perfect for also catching hackers and/or cheaters)
  24. I've seen the changelog on joinsquad.com and i had an idea for the compass. Played a little bit with illustrator and photoshop trying to give a "surrounding" effect to the compass. I think that it would help the immersion and situation awareness and also helping those who would like to have a sort of minimap of your mates without using an actual minimap.
  25. Hello guys, i got suggestion about local tallk, could you let the enemy hear our local talkings? if you think that before why you didnt do this?
