So, like in Project Reality, before the round even starts, Squads would be created signifying which vehicles they would claim and how only that squad would utilize it.

I don't want it exactly like Project Reality, but I am hoping that in the upcoming updates there will be vehicle-dedicated squads and they would have priority for that vehicle.

I'm specifically talking about heavily armored vehicles like Tanks, 30m vehicles, armored fighting vehicles, etc.. 

Adding dedicated squads to these types of vehicles allows squads to focus on their role in the game.

Often times I find infantry squads that try operating Styrkers and coordinating with their infantry don't communicate effectively, as opposed to a 4-man squad solely operating two strykers. 

 

Please tell me what you think, and add in anything you want regarding this! Thanks!

Name the Squad specific enough to be identified as vic squad.

Sure. People name their squad "Armor" or whatever and get blown up in the first 5 minutes of the game then they all spawn back at main and mill around the next vehicle they can't claim because of cool down. We then walk up and grab the Stryker/BTR and they proceed to freak out in command chat proclaiming that they're the vic squad and we're "stealing" their vehicle.... lmfao... You mean that kind of "priority"? It's mine because I say it's mine?

No.

 

Not everyone is guaranteed to stay for the duration of a full match that can last anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour+. People disconnect, new SL's are elected, the battle shifts dynamics, etc...Having the armored vehicles be claimable by only a select squad is a BAD idea. This sort of a suggestion, although admirable, unfortunately doesn't resolve the real problem which is poor usage of the vehicles with complete disregard to the tickets.

 

IF this were to be implemented the Logistical trucks would be sitting ducks. Currently as SL on the bigger maps I claim an Armored+Logi for either defense or offense. With this implementation I would have to opt out of using an armored vehicle and hope another Squad would take it and escort me which is not guaranteed.

 

At the end of the day 1 single squad can be the deciding factor of a win. Currently in regards to vehicle claim, among other things, a single squad has all the tools they need to carry a team or at the very least set the team up for success. I believe that the change suggested here in this topic will shift the entire efficiency of a team to it's lowest common denominator. This will make the job for the infantry fighting squads such as me a much harder time...

This cannot be overstated enough.

Unfortunately it also encourages that squad, after death, to respawn in main and wait for their vehicle to respawn instead of helping out the team on the caps....

just communicate at the beginning and as V10 will have a staging time so all this can be sorted out prior to round launch.

 

devs made the poor decision to allow a single man to take a vehicle, I think they should revert to 2 man.. that one change meant more vehicles have been left strewn across the maps.. they are used like taxis and it turns into a spam of vehicles and ticket loss...

 

specific vehicles should have a minimum amount of people in it.. ie. driver and gunner for large vehicles like the BTR and Stryker..transport trucks and logis 1 driver ... this would also stop the single manning of an asset so squads then would be forced to decide whether they want that vehicle or leave it to a specific vehicle squad.
