Personally, I think the next faction should be China

It's not as active as it used to be, but you can still play it.

France needs to be in

France.... yeah right.

 

France has plenty of great condition rifles from WW2... never fired and only dropped once.

 

 

@OP

You are spot on, Chinese forces are hugely unrepresented in games which is extremely odd considering they are the 3rd greatest fighting force on the planet... little weak nations (vassals) like france, germany, canada, australia etc best NOT come before China not just because China is far more important and powerful globally than any of the mentioned above 'nations' but because more nato forces using the same old boring nato pop guns is not at all interesting.

China is boring for me. I´d much rather see a modern German faction, since post WW2 games usually never have a German faction (PR had, but I can't remember any other game). Or a Czech faction. I'd love to see a G36 or a CZ805 Bren in Squad :D

ArmA 2 did and they were quite cool, but really ALL european armies are pretty much a joke these days bar maybe their special forces (all western armies are a joke including merika)

Won't happen. That simple. China will ban any game that doesn't show their own army as the glorious defenders of all that is righteous. China's grudging acceptance of some capitalist policies have resulted in them becoming a burgeoning market for PC games and developers are largely willing to kneel to their policies in order to have access to their market.

I don't know how you can find the Chinese boring for a game.

As long as we're not talking about reserve units China has an impressive lineup of domestically designed equipment.

I always mention how great it would be to see Japan or Korea for once in a shooter but quite a few things they have even are variants of American technology.

Could we have Pakistan next, their army could double as both regulars and insurgents depending on which side of the mountains they are fighting.. would get two factions in one!

China didn't ban OPFP2DR.

Literally all you had to do was NOT be like BF4/C&CGenerals.

And Americans can't have players as Talibans killing US marines.

This game is becoming very politically correct...

~ No Humvees;

~ Potentially no PLA;

 

What's next? It's a game for Christ's sake. Bigger games than this don't seem to have an issue.

I agree wholeheartedly that China would be an EXCELLENT faction for Squad... from a gameplay perspective.  OTOH, I understand if it ends up making no marketing sense if it gets the game banned in China.

 

First, it would introduce new and unusual equipment that all of the Western players would find exotic.  I know that I personally know almost nothing about the PLA Ground Force, so it would all be new and interesting to me.  I need to broaden my horizons, and China is certainly a timely subject.

 

Second, it is easy to think of scenarios where China might come into conflict with every other faction currently in the game, so it would be very versatile- kind of like Russia now.  Let's face it, you don't see a lot of games played with the three Western factions fighting one another for a reason.

 

Third, Russia vs. China would be awesome.

 

Other factions that would be nice:

 

France (because unusual equipment, and they tend to intervene in Africa a lot, see below)

Germany (because reasons- everyone wants to play as them)

Australia, maybe (because unusual equipment, and an Asian interest to conflict with China)

African Militia (Africa will probably become an even more common place for interventions)

Iran, maybe (as another world-class combined-arms force to challenge the Westerners, because there aren't many)

 

Sweden, Finland, and Poland all might be interesting dark horse choices, if for no other reason than to fight the Russians.  Rather limited in possible scenario utility, though.  Israel is similar- actually less useful than some others think, at least from a scenario justification perspective, though their army and equipment certainly are interesting.  Same with Japan and either Korea, and it's quite hard to think of a Latin American faction that might be useful for the game.

 

Remove the Western weapon kits from the current Eastern-European Militia and put them in the African Militia- that's where those FALs belong.  Or, heck, make a separate Western Militia too, with M113s and other older Western equipment!  It could represent various Latin American interventions, including maybe even being a stand-in for paramilitary criminal cartels.  Not to mention fantastical Second Civil War scenarios like when a secession movement pulls Idaho out of the Union or whatnot.

Priority of development should really be China followed by Korea, followed by Israel. Frankly, there are no other countries with relevant military power that have significantly different equipment from the US (edit except maaaaybe regional middle powers like Iran, Poland etc). Down the track Pakistan and India would be nice, but it's not a conflict that western audiences find interesting.

Make China a whitelisted mod, not official part of the game :kappa:

That's exactly what I was thinking. There's a robust Chinese community in Squad so who better to make it than them right?

Wew. They were fun in PR though.

We need less Blufor and more Opfor that isn't insurgents. Iran or some other PR MEC-like faction would hit the mark perfectly.

Once you start getting anywhere other than major nations with their own models of equipment you have a mixed tier of having domestic small arms and imports or contracted productions of either American or Russian vehicles. Japan, Korea, Iran, Former commie bloc countries... They all have their own strange mix.

How was this even remotely PC? Currently the PC way to go for western societies is to bash China whenever possible.

The flip side of that is that it would be very easy to implement a lot of such factions in short order, so why not?  You just mix and match equipment, and make new skins for the camo patterns.

^This is true.

Ironically even the people who consistently called out the fake news of western msm started believing those same western msm when they post fake news about China.

Only because they had objectively the best weapons(tavor had even better stats than fullauto m4s while their opponent either get clunky G3s or have no bodyarmor + m16 at best), and tanks/APCs(namer) for a while.
