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.

I'm new to the game, and would really like to improve my skills - particularly skills that involve team work, like clearing rooms and suppressing fire. Playing the game is fine, but its always with a random bunch of people and I often find it hard to coordinate with the other squad members. Is there a way to train in the game? If I managed to find a few other players interesting in doing this - is the only way to try and join the same squad on an existing server? Can you make a private server to run drills on?
So play with your mind a little eh, as the title says Lets just say that you got transported or reincarnated or other worlds but much more low tech and your memory intact NOW DONT KILL THE FUN. which is after rome developed their little militia, not legionaires. how will you survived? if you get to be a commander? what training will you put up with your own army. what tactics train special units? and so on?
[TP]Semi posted a topic in QuestionsHey guys, I have searched the forums and there is no answer that I can find. I want to start a server locally on my machine and host it with clan members for purposes of training. Meaning not a public permeant server but a local training server for a short period of time. In PR there is a way to do so through IP, and since the idea is not to open a permeant server I find it a bit ridicules to rent a server for a few hours. Is there any way to do so like there is in PR? Cheers and sorry the question has been asked already I find it hard to find any topic discussing that.

THE WAR ACADEMY The War Academy is an institution dedicated to the collection, understanding, and dissemination of all knowledge related to Squad. Our objective is to foster good gameplay within the community, understand and evolve the meta-game in Squad, and to spread this information throughout the Squad community. We provide educational content through our Agoge branch, focusing on live training courses supplemented with visual aides, as well as audio and video content. The Hattusa branch is our administrative and academic branch, focusing on community-wide content and events, the overall administration and growth of the institution, and the archival and dissemination of all our content. Through our Skunkworks branch we organize experimental events that test and push the boundaries of our knowledge and understanding of the game. The War Academy Discord Server - The War Academy Sub-Reddit - The War Academy Steam Group INFORMATION Training Courses: The War Academy organizes numerous training courses covering everything from basic infantry skills to advanced strategy and tactics. Check the schedule for upcoming events. Currently available training courses: Basic Infantry Combat Basic Squad Leading Mentorship Program: The War Academy Mentorship Program allows new players to get in touch with seasoned players for practical training sessions or just leisurely play. More information to come... Squad Leader Rush: The purpose of the Squad Leader Rush is to improve gameplay in a targeted and effective manner. Participants come together and target individual servers, particularly low quality servers, that they join and set up squads in on both teams. In this way, the participants can positively impact the gameplay with likeminded and competent peers who put teamwork and communication as the priority. Squad members joining will experience this elevated level of play and what Squad can actually be, hopefully craving more and expecting more of their team members in the future. Join the Squad Leader Rush Steam Group here: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/TWASLR Clan Support: The War Academy hereby provides support for players who want to form a group, but don't yet have the ability to host a server, or want organizational support, media support, exposure, and more.

These groups can be dedicated to anything from logistics and infantry to armored warfare and air combat. If you want to establish such a group, contact Tartantyco on The War Academy Discord Server Existing groups: Voltigeurs - Light Reconnaissance Infantry SCHEDULE No events pending.
Simple: implement the ability to team switch to all available teams and spawn in as Militia and Insurgents. This might not be possible if the two team limit is hardcoded, so an alternative would just to implement an alternative menu option for irregular firing ranges. This seems like a really basic suggestion but I couldn't find it using search, so if it's already on the roadmap I apologize.
Hi all, We're running a training server and we would like to know if there is a way for SuperAdmin to increase via Console Command the supplypoint. We would like to use this feature for our training session. Thanks in advance.
At the fighting honey badgers, we take ourselves very seriously. Putting our hopeful initiates through hell and back, in a attempt of creating the most divisive fighting force known to man and badger alike. This carries over to our recently found driving skills, where we execute precise, coordinated maneuvers. (as seen below) We take ourselves very seriously.... http://gph.is/2b4Cdg0
I hope I can get some attention to this and that there are more who find this interesting. Every week I run practice with the 7`th Cavalry on our training server, to keep things interesting I have created a drill in the CQB area and in the outside rocky area. The drill is aptly named by a participant "save the lady" where we place a civilian in the centre. The objective for both teams is to "tag" and escort the civilian to safety. This is only a part of the exercise but also the major issue, the civilian must wear the same uniform as one of the teams resulting in albeit hilarious situations a lot of civilian deaths. If we could have access to all factions in Jensen`s range we would have much more flexibility to create fun drills and practices. It would also add the possibility of testing out all the factions on the range. My hope is that you see this as a valuable addition and that it`s not too difficult to implement.
As follow up to my last video (HERE) (specially for you @DoctorSnailer with voice this time) I made this DIY CQB. I thought its a good idea to practice alone and build your own scenarios as you want them. Facilities are there - it took me 15 min to build what you see on video. Apologies for poor sound, still trying to figure out this mic setup
(Also posted on steam) TL;DR, Make a leveling system based on your squadmate's review of your teamwork in order to buy classes/specializations. So, my current issue with the game is this: when you join a squad, because of the new players, you consistently have one guy using a class that he/she doesn't understand yet(A squad lead who doesn't communicate/drop RPs, a medic that doesn't heal, etc), and when vehicles come along, I'd hate to imagine the chopper pilot who thinks walls make good helipads or the IFV that likes to sit in the open and get a face full of RPGs. So, my idea is to impliment a leveling system designed as a skill tree. You start as a recruit, and at the end of the match(while waiting forever for the next round to start), your squaddies can opt in to fill a quick checkbox for each player(Communicated with the team, followed orders, stayed with the group, etc). Every checkmark you get shows that you're better at the game, and can use the points gained to unlock teers of classes, like optics riffleman which becomes a marksman, or a AT soldier that becomes a grenadier, etc. Vehicles would be done similarly. You unlock the "heli" teer 1, which allows you to be a gunner for a blackhawk or attack chopper, then pilot of a scout or transport heli, and finally an attack chopper pilot. Hummvee gunner/driver becomes IFV gunner becomes IFV driver becomes tanks or whatever. Each teer starts off with a buy in value, which is higher for those classes/vehicles that require more skill. And to one-up that idea, maybe after you buy into a teer tree, you need to complete a tutorial. For example, a marksman tutorial that explains that you WILL die if you are in the middle of the fight instead of on an elevated position, and that you need to move position every kill or two. Another example would be for AT soldiers, which explains that tanks need to be flanked and hit from the side(preferably under the turret axis) or from behind near the engine, and that RPGs fly like bananas instead of bullets and that AT4 rockets drop off like they have ED. The point is, it not only gives an endgame objective that isn't linear(get grenadier at level 4, hummer driver at 6, etc), but also pushes people to play the game as a team to get those checkmarks, and reserves specialized roles for those that would be better suited for them, because they've worked on learning the playstyles.

Hey guys! Happy to be part of the Squad Alpha, and playing with great team mates, squad Leads, and challenging enemies (when I'm not dealing with LoneWolfs, script kids, or com abusers) So I posted a few questions in the Squad SubReddit, and one person suggested that I put my post on the official forums. So here is a copy of that post. Thanks for your time! And thanks for such an intense and thrilling game! "A couple questions about the range. -Will there be a time when we can connect with friends in the range? -Will there be an AI "clearing" area to practice on, for people that would like to casually jump in and just take on some bots? -And, Does anyone else think the idea of a dedicated training server would be cool? Like a server with some experienced players (that obviously find fun in helping and teaching), showing new players, techniques that could be useful like: correct communication, cqc tactics and so on. Not only could it be extremely useful for inexperienced, and willing to learn players, but it could be a fun time for all involved. It could be cool to go in and run a few clearings with a red vs blue team, teach people about team work, and get people pumped to get into a real battle after more chilled out courses. I know there isn't much to do with it now, but it could be useful for new players, and help them get into the right mind set. And as more features, functions, vehicles and, animations get added, there will be more to learn and utilize. I came from Arma 2/3, and when I tried to jump into an ACE server with experienced players, I had no idea how to use things, how to read things, and just watching some YouTube videos was boring as fuuucccck. By the time I got to using it, I forgot most of what I learned... but through this training server, you can run through it in practice, ask questions, and learn to play the game better. The server could be 'must to sign up for', or even just a recruitment for a cpl teams. I know it might sound stupid, but I would like to hear some opinions and ideas. And you're going to be rude, don't waste your time please. I'm looking for a discussion, not an argument."
I would like to see something for the huge amount of the incoming player to be able to face the game and learn new features all the time on a training ground with training statics all the time. Ex. You're a new comer? Let me put you to training map with a group of newbies to learn together for the first 5 hours. That would push up the level of the game so bad
