The RedCoats - Actively Recruiting

Recommended Posts


Recruitment Thread


The RedCoats


The RedCoats are a tight-knit group of gamers from around the world who aim to ensure teamwork and communication is at the core of every game we play. Formed back in 2011 as a small group of friends, they quickly made a name for themselves during Squad’s Closed Pre-Alpha stage. Since then we have evolved into an international gaming community playing a wide variety of games from RTS’ to MMO’s. 
The RedCoats are a unit made up varied individuals. Our age range is from 21 to 40+, with members hailing from the UK, USA, Czech Republic, Austria, Netherlands, Finland, Germany, France, Norway, Australia, Israel, Sweden and Portugal. We are a true international community but our roots are in the UK, with our name taking inspiration from British history.


The RedCoats in Squad


We established ourselves within the squad community very early, becoming regulars on the London servers throughout the CPA stage. It was in Squad where our numbers grew, bringing people to our squads due to the group’s characteristics. We took part in the first ever clan match in December 2015  prior to steam launch, and from there we took part in the first Community Clan Fight Night shortly after. After Squad launched on steam we hosted 4 of the most popular servers on the browser, which allowed us to facilitate some of the best gameplay around. Since then we have been a constant presence around the community, contributing to several community events and discussions.

We go into games expecting nothing less than the highest standard of teamplay. Using our game knowledge, communication, discipline and tactical vision, we maintain a high-standard of gameplay which we have demonstrated across multiple events, in both competitive and noncompetitive scenes. We excel in large-scale warfare, employing intricate tactics and strategies across multiple squads which is benefited from the chemistry between our Squad Leaders who have hundreds of hours working together in-game.

Despite all of this, we are a group that are known to enjoy ourselves. Players from outside of the clan always leave our squads with a good experience, and this is something we pride ourselves on.



Why are we recruiting?


We are looking to increase our presence within Squad, with an aim to start taking part in large clan matches again. Our main goal is to be able to field a full 50 man team once the 100p servers are released.


Recruitment Process


Our recruitment process has always been a precise system which has allowed us to create a group that has stuck together for years. We want to ensure that any potential new members fit within the chemistry of the group as a priority. We believe a good atmosphere between clan mates is the key to success, and we have continuously strived to ensure that all of our members can work with each other to a high level, and chemistry is the number one component in that process.
The first step is either your approach or our approach of interest. We will then look for you to join us in game. We use either our public discord (link at the bottom) or steam friends list to contact people about when we are going to jump into a game.
If we feel there can be progress, we will invite you into our teamspeak and from there begin an observation phase. We will observe how you interact with the group, how you behave in game and also how you play. This period is an undetermined time and only comes to a successful end if we believe the player fits with us.
We do not use an application system, nor do we give people our tag without a thorough process.
You will need to have patience as a virtue, as an observation period can take anywhere between 4 and 6 weeks. This may seem like a long time but this is the best way to ensure that potential recruits have the determination and desire to join us. 

The only restrictions in place are that we do not accept anyone under the age of 21, and you must be able to speak English to an understandable level.


Who do we need?


We have no particular roles/positions to fill. We will look to take in anyone who fits into the group and can benefit us, both gameplay wise and personality wise.
One area we are actively looking to improve though  is use of heavy asset. As mainly an infantry unit, we are looking to improve our use of vehicles, particularly the heavier assets within Squad right now.




Aside from general day to day gaming we take part in CCFN and clan scrims (24v24+). With an increase in active players we will look to facilitate this on a more consistent basis. 
Please note we do not demand or expect people to play a set amount of hours per week. We are a mature community with families and jobs so we appreciate people may not always be available. We do hope that members choose to join us in their spare time for banter and socialising on teamspeak.

The Red's had some brilliant experiences during free weekend, even inspiring some of the guys to purchase!! We are pleased we were able to give a good show of what squad is all about, and help new players enjoy a good experience. We can't say much more than that!


See you on the battlefield B|

Both rounds of our last clan match are uploaded! 
We teamed up with Mumblerines to form the MumCoats and took up a challenge thrown by FSQ to invade Al Basrah for 2 round straight as the US...
Incredible fight from both sides and Squad at it's highest level
Casted by OMBDs Gec for his and her (viewing) pleasure
