    Cool Squad


    Squad Steam Release Date Announced! December 15

    What is Squad?
    Squad is a 50 vs 50 multiplayer first-person shooter that aims to capture combat realism through communication and teamplay, emphasizing both strong squad cohesion mechanics as well as larger scale coordination, tactics and planning. It features large open maps, vehicle-based combined arms gameplay, and player-constructed bases to create a heart-thumping, visceral gaming experience which mixes organized tactical multi-squad planning with split second decision-making in real-world scale firefights.It seeks to bridge the rather large gap between arcade shooter and military sim, and is based in large part on the ideas introduced by our predecessor, the Project Reality modification for Battlefield 2.

    Good stuff SnR. Yes this game is highly anticipated amongst many AEF members who have been following it since it's inception. Looks great.

    It cant be Arma. But Its Project Reality foundation, to me should achieve meaningful PvP that has always the hampered the Arma series.

    The Aus community is growing rapidly in this game. I would love to see AEF at the forefront of this. And would be nice to try and get a competitive team together. Also the BigD gaming servers are puss atm as they have no active admins and the hackers are running amok. I suggest AMG australia made gaming servers. Have had good admin response from them.

    Whats the verdict on this? Can you pick it up and play or is there a bit of coordination required?

    Cheers

    It's quite simplified really. If you aren't familiar with Arma of BF2+ PR you'd want to spend 10 mins learning what a FOB and Rp are, apart from that you could dive right in!

    Really needs JTACs and CAS though, I know, I'm dreaming too much!

    Cool. Sorry I was more meaning can you just jump into a server/team at any moment and get into some action or do you have to coordinate games and squads like Arma?

    I want something I can pick up and just play when I have a spare minute. Not something that has a logistical overhead like setting up and briefing a multi-flight BMS package.

    How is the gameplay? I haven;t played PR, but have played plenty of ARMA and insurgency. Tossing up between this and Siege.

    Ahh right, got you. Probably coming off a NYE/Festival bender didn't do much for my english comprehension!

    Yeah, you can jump right in. Lone Wolfing isn't really a thing in Squad, although sometimes I will do it if I don't know the map. But yeah you just join, get in a squad or squad hop until you find one that is communicating and hit the objectives. Very casual in that regard at the moment.

    I think the true beauty of the game will be seen when you get a bunch of decent players working together maybe on a private server or something.

    Monthly Dev recap for January. Judging by the small teases by the Dev team (see https://twitter.com/JoinSquad/status/835287181207851008), Alpha V9 is just around the corner. I've seen one or two AEF members playing on the BigD servers, and it would be good to get a bit more organised and squad up.

    BigD Gaming now have a local 80 slot server... Silky smooth and absolute mayhem.

    How many people are playing this game? Looking at the server side of things we could spin up a server relatively easy

    Average Australian player base is around 100 most nights. Highest number of concurrent players I've seen is maybe 200-250.

    BigD have anywhere from two to four servers running, and OWI (the devs) have one server up.

    BigD with their devoted PR background would be fully focused on this game.
