A couple of suggestions

thebiglezthebiglez Member Posts: 40 ★★

've been playing and enjoying Squad for 2 years, here are a couple of small suggestions from my side:


Add insurgent suicide vehicle.


I think we can all agree that these would be a welcome addition. Currently everyone is trying with the engineer's IEDs but, it doesnt work that well, also the explosion should be bigger (check videos).



A little bit of customization

Something like in Hell Let Loose. Because why not? its realistic even, for soldiers to customize their look a bit. For me it would add some immersion.

We already have different looks, but currently, they are linked to the classes, so just unlink them and let us choose which one we like to play as.


Some post-battle statistics

It would be amazing when the battle ends, we could see a 30-sec birds-eye view of how the match went.



More maps

I think we have enough factions, but we need more maps, and maps that are set in different environments. For example: Florida, Grand canyon, Amsterdam etc.


Battles between allied factions

Right now its almost always either US, UK, CAN, AUS vs RUS

Why not have some map layers with AUS vs UK for example. I mean its just a game..


Škorpion gun for Insurgent riflemen.

Currently its only available for their crewmen. Why not add it also to riflemen, i really like this gun.


Iron sights zoom

Currently you can zoom with iron sights but only for a few seconds. Make that a permanent zoom.


Bipod

It feels unreliable where you can place it and even if you can sometimes you cant move around then.. feels very awkward.


Bodies on the floor

Dead bodies disappear to quickly.

Imagine you are going to an objective with your squad and on the way you see an exploded loggie with dead bodies still laying around. It makes you more immersed that you are in a war.

I realize this might be for performance reasons, but you could give us an option in the settings to make this timer longer.


Thats all, thank you for making this amazing game Squad devs.

    One more:

    Longer matches

    Often its just when the battle line gets set, and you get to know each other in your squad a bit, that the match end. Its quite frustrating. I think around 10-minute longer matches would be better.

    All for most of that but I hope OWI stays well clear of any form of cosmetics. This ain't the game for it.

    I dont see anything wrong with simple customization like suggested in this post.

    More maps

    I agree with more variety (there seem to be a lot of arid maps with the same set of buildings), but please no US-based maps.

    A lack of non-western factions in general seems to be the main issue IMO, the chinese faction should help with that.

    Or just remove the zoom from that?

    I've also noticed some issues when using the bipod with the sandbag walls you can shoot through, sometimes the bipod places the weapon too low and you just hit the sandbags.

    That would be good if they were still physics objects, not just some visual thing.

    No idea why the quote thing doesn't work there, and I can't fix it because there seems to be no code editor.

    The only way this would happen is if they get rid of the dumb ticket bleed system. WAY too many matches are cut short because of ticket bleed. The other team could construct a counter as they get re-grouped, but the ticket count just keeps dropping and you can't overcome it. When the ticket bleed kicks in, the losing team goes into desperation mode and just starts flinging bodies at a cap zone to stop the ticket bleed instead of truly re-grouping and planning an attack that might have minimal amount of death. All you hear over squad chat is "rush, get into the cap zone or we're gonna lose the game" and then those rushing in get mowed down. The ticket bleed system is a solution to a problem that doesn't exist.


    OWI - Please ditch the ticket bleed system entirely. Or better yet, please make server side settings where this can be turned off, and then make the client server browser have filters where you can search for servers that have this (and many other settings) turned off.

    Since this is a suggestions thread i'd like to leave a suggestion for the german army to be added in a paid dlc or something would be cool. I just say paid dlc cause panasia and us marines were last on the list for the current roadmap. I would like to support this game through dlc for more content if they have any plans for that.

  • thebiglezthebiglez Member Posts: 40 ★★

    I actually asked about this on the last Q&A, and they said they have no plans for a DLC or any other way to support the game.

  • Nickolas956Nickolas956 Member Posts: 2 Civilian

    That's a real shame, squad is very fun and i would love to continue to support it but i guess that is not what the devs want?

  • EristusEristus Member Posts: 9 Civilian

    Yes, I agree, that's why it would be interesting to be in the same squad the next round.

    Why don't you want US-based maps?

    Because it always feels like the goal is to give an "oh, we're fighting for our home now" feeling, but a large number of us are not from the US so instead of that feeling we often just see it as a gimmick to get attention.

  • GeebusGeebus Member Posts: 142 ★★

    Customization often ruins the aesthetic of games. More often than not, players are given too much choice and it leads to goofy looking characters running around everywhere. I absolutely despise cosmetics in what are otherwise authentic feeling shooters. Believeable looking characters are incredibly important to immersion.

  • thebiglezthebiglez Member Posts: 40 ★★

    That doesn't make any sense to me and im not for US. Its just a map, but instead of a setting in an arab country its in Florida for example.

  • GeebusGeebus Member Posts: 142 ★★

    I've always thought the gimmick was more of a, "look we have a NA map! Isn't that unique!" I'd much rather that map developers stick to creating believable maps of potential conflict zones rather than ones that, while unique, don't make much sense. What purpose would the Russians have in invading Florida? Why isn't it some interesting area in the Baltics?

    Maybe it's just me but my suspension of disbelief doesn't work too well in these cases. At least the Canadian maps we have in-game are generic enough that they can be just about anywhere in Europe if you ignore the POI names.

    Here's a good way to think about it:

    +1 for suicide vics

    +1 character customize ( IF performance can handle it)

    +1 post-battle stats YES, some of that stats we got need an overhaul, and lot need to be added! The 'team score' is the prime example

    +1 map variety yes, we have a lot but give us 1 or 2 really great ones that are just crazy different from the other climates

    +1 Battles between allied factions

    +1 Iron sights zoom

    +1 Bipod

    1) What about IED + vics, we already got that

    2) I completely agree with that. It will be nice if actually added to the game

    3) Nice thinking, but i wonder how many things u can see while forcing a 50min game into 30sec

    4) Definitely

    5) Nice thinking, but it is very unfriendly to novices and noobs

    6) nice

    7) nice

    8) lefting the bodies will probably make the game less efficient cuz your computer is going to calculate the movements of dead bodies
