Why play this game?

Since there's no ranks or anything to work up to, what makes you want to play it over and over?

See, that's an issue created by games like CoD:MW.

 

Before around that point there were very few shooters that had progression at all. I can't even think of one off the top of my head. I never felt like anything was lacking when I played Quake or Doom, never felt like my games in CoD2 were wasted because my playtime didn't add to anything.

 

Project Reality used to have ranks (a long time ago) and they realized it added absolutely nothing to the game and took it out because it was unneeded and didn't add anything important.

Battlefield 2 in 2005 while you were playing CoD2. I feel like it added a lot of staying power for that game because the higher ranks were hard to achieve. Now things are a bit too easy for my taste.

 

The ranks in PR were server based and weren't profile persistent IIRC.

It would be cool to have a lvl rank like in RO2, so you can see who's new or a vet. But not unlocking weapons and stuff like that.

I'm good without stats and rankings but there seems to be a lot of people in the inner circle dropping hints there will be.  /sadface

 

I play Squad because it offers me something different.  But I also enjoy Insurgency, Day of Infamy, RO2, ARMA3.

But just imagine if you reached rank of general you unlocked a nuclear weapon!  Oh the destruction of the entire map would ensue!  LOL!

A ranking, STAT system in squad will just ruin Squad - via - cheating / hacking / no more  teamwork!   No one wants to see SQUAD turn into BF/ COD..AKA Running & gunning around  like a bunch of  ****ing crackheads hopped up on speed.

 

If you're in a clan have your clan leaders/members  implement a ranking system within the clan.   [clan} { rank} {Your name}  Private, Private Second Class, Private First Class, Specialist, Corporal, Sergeant, Staff Sergeant, Sergeant First Class, Master Sergeant, First Sergeant, Sergeant Major, Command Sergeant Major.......  Example  "KGB" Pvt.

Sounds about right. I remember how annoying it was to hear that drumroll everytime you joined the server and got a kill.

This. 

Anything like this should be built upon in the community (AKA your reputation in the game as a player) and not some star next to your name that signifies you ran some fool's errands.

Actually guys, after reading all your comments, you've convinced me that ranks and unlocks and stuff are a bad idea. It will be more enjoyable and realistic the way it is now. And me, I'm a shy speaker so im slowly using Voip when i'm in a squad to get used to it and get good at it. Let's leave the ranks to the Battlefield and CoD series. Thanks guys :)

That's my opinion too. This little kids playing the whole day or cheating there way to Rank 100/140 in BF3/4 and trolling casual gamers like me with either a OP sniper rifle or an aimbot made me leave this kind of games. 

A friend argued me to play BF4 TDM last weekend.

I hate it the more I play it.

Spawn - Death - Spawn - Death - Spawn - Death - Spawn - Death - Spawn - Death - Spawn - Run 200m - Death

Who the f$%&   want's to play that crap?

 

But I like games like Squad or PR, that are more realistic in terms of strategy and teamplay.

Even if I have to pull someones leg and play the dead medic, wait till he's gone and then revive the whole squad to strike back.

I love the numerous flanks we did with our squad.

Or to make a concerted strike against the enemy flag via SL VOIP.

 

This is the gameplay I love.

But do add an extra end game medic stat..  medics revives are kills to a rifleman. Give them that!

I think I read something about more detailed end-of-round-statistics a while ago. And revives were included in these, iirc.

There should be a banner on top of the forum saying "NO RANK SYSTEM WILL BE INCLUDED".

We would need the same for "I have this awesome idea, let´s make it so that the enemy can hear us in local chat!" :P

There was a saying when I was in the milsim airsoft world. This is regarding Stats 
 

Quote

 

"Dude I killed like 4 guys!!!"
     "Cool, but did you get the objective done?"

"Well no but I got 4 guys!"

     "So we still lost the game."

 

 

I play cause every game is a new game. Experience doesn't need a ribbon or a padded stat. Its easy to see in a few minutes whether your SL is good or crap.

i play because its alot more like chess than it is checkers... 


Squad = chess

CoD,BF,superleetmanextremepremium = checkers

5 That's the average number of moves ahead that a Class A or better chess player will generally be thinking throughout the course of a game. While checkers is primarily played in the moment, chess requires a complex strategy that is often won by thinking ahead."

Especially pertinent now that stealth fobs require 7 minutes to become active, thus you have to be thinking "where will the team need to be spawning in 10 minutes from now"

so I'm new to squad too and I'm so glad about the free weekend and the chance to test the game. I bought it after few hours, because the approach totally convinced me, that this will be something great. I'm so disappointed like many here of the way the bf series went and never got to love arma or other games like I did bf2 and its mods/scene. this game now is something really unique. the developers did so many things right here and I'm intrigued and have to find out what is planned for the

future yet. but what I really dig now is

 

+ visual system/persistence of objects/nature and so forth (no other game I know gives you such possibilites to safely use the environment to hide, meanwhile it looks quite good and I'm sure can be further polished because of ue4)

+ no bullshit in my hud!

+ huge maps in different landscapes

+ from grand strategy of the squadleaders plans to tactical teamwork within one squad

+ many possibilities and for me an unseen strategical dynamic in multiplayer games by placing fobs, fortification etc.

+ 3-way voice communication system

+ sounds and effects are already great for alpha

+ many full and good servers

+ friendly and nice community

 

this game does so many things right were other brands utterly failed and has the ground work to become a classic of its kind, I really hope the devs go on and are not driven away from their path for any reason. of course there are some things that need to be worked on but man, the potential I see here: unbelievable!
