Title: Squad interest.
Post by: [R]Druss on June 28, 2017, 03:46:24 pm
Hi !
Squad is now getting close to full release and i know a small amount of Wargamers have the Alpha and been jumping into its servers now and then. I have only really played the game on my own , Once or twice with a friend or two, But its getting very intesting now, With Vehciles being added a while back and now the mention the Choppers are incoming.
How many Wargamers have the game or are considering buying it ?

For those who have not tried it i ll explain as best i can.

Graphics - You would think it was Arma 3 TBH. (Free look is coming too). Maps are very big for the Battles, Not Arma size , But impressive. I get a great FPS.
Joining a Game: Compared to Arma its easy to join a random battle, Join a SQ. To join a group your probery best to be on a TS channel. Lone wolves would struggle to stay close to the action.
Pace: I would say its Arma 3 pace in parts and slightly faster in major fights, It can be hard to see bad guys sometimes as firefight can sometimes be at a distance. Communication is a must to stay alive and thats were the game is great it your SQ is organised or has a good couple of Leaders.

To be honest a SQ of Wargames games would be difficult to overcome and would be pretty effective, You need a mix of Killers and patient players.
For those of us were life has kinda got in the way (A good way) This is a perfect type of game for casual players , you just kinda need a core group, Unlike Arma 3 random games , Squad is easy to drop in and out.

Might take a while before people see this .But post your thoughts or even if you own the game or fancy getting it please.
Its full release is december. I have played it for about 6 months on and off. Might be a cool way of Wargamers coming together now and then.

Got it yesterday, first impressions are good and well worth a cheap £14.99, offer ends on the 5th July.
I for one would be interested in getting together with fellow players..

I would like to play again as team. And if you say, let's start to meet on Sundays - to play 2-3 rounds each evening, i would consider to buy it.

I don't like to buy a pure MP game without a known base of player.

Still time to the 5th. July....

Im in. Was thinking to rent a server, 80 players... Its just about £35/month, or would it be better to get dedicated server?

Btw Ghost, get a game. I bought it yesterday, i had total about 30 mins of play and Im impressed so far. - Cant comment too much. - I also heard from a friend that choppers are coming very soon as well!

I tried it sometime ago when there was a free WE. TBH I found the graphics quite ugly and movement bit sluggish. Now maybe this has improved since then i dunno, but I wasnt very impressed. Obviously the point of he game is teamplay (graphics is secondary to me if the gameplay is good) which I could not really test but the systems seems to be in place at least to facilitate that.

All that to say i may consider buying it if I see massive interest in it. But tbh I d rather play arma.

Sunday evenings is an opton. But we kinda need to start playing together. Message each other on steam if u see someone playing. Then jump on our Teamspeak . I bet most guys u see playing are on their own on game. Also atm their is no way to find each other in game. So we really nèed to find a server together. Remember its not a totaly finished game yet..

I wont be playing again untill Tuesday or wendesday.

If you dont have me 9n steam search for druss29way....or join wargames group.

So, whose up for a game tonight?  I'm going to join on TS about 7pm UK time and see what happens.  I havent played in about 4 months so I will be even worse than usual.  :o

dont think the forums will be the place to post at short notice Mick... Wargames facebook page seems to get a faster response.
I wont be gaming until Tuesday/Wend........failing that a week on sunday.

Ghost !   I know you dont want to buy the game without seeing a group playing it. might take a while before we get the word out and people show up. i ll let you know if we manage to get regular gatherings.
Title: Re: Squad interest.
Post by: [R]Druss on July 01, 2017, 11:09:42 pm
we are going to set Sunday 9th.....around 7pm as a night to see who turns up for a few rounds....meet on on wargames Teamspeak guy....if people join later no problem, but dont expect several guys to leave a server to allow one guy to join.....(need to remember to write down the server name). you dont have to post that your intending to play, but it might help encourage others to join. TBH even 4 guys is better than on your own.

we can create a squad and lock it and as guys join allow you in....

Post by: [AW.R]Pvt.WhereIsBeef on July 03, 2017, 09:05:48 pm
I'll play. I find that game only fun when you're playing with people you know.
Title: Re: Squad interest.
Post by: Ghost0815 on July 05, 2017, 12:18:05 am
Okay, count me in for Sunday...

Post by: [R]Druss on July 05, 2017, 01:09:59 pm
Their has been more interest than i expected. This is a list of guys who have said they will/might play on Sunday.   I would sugget people start to gather around 6.45 bst on Wargames Teamspeak.


TeamSpeak: arma-wargames.com

(ip: 46.20.46.229:10028)
no password.
Player names: some of you on Facebook posted your real life names and i cant alway figure out player name.


Druss
Jonny
Vulcan
Ghost
Strella
Grober
Biske
Mickd
Marv
Zaghass *
Beef
Stuntman*
Mr White*
Monkman
Jakob (Not sure player name)
Dejan (not sure player name srry)
Tomislav (not sure of player name)
Michael Haupt (not sure of player name )
Strange russian writing ( no feckin idea of player name)

It will be a invade a server operation guy , As we dont have a server and as yet don't have an idea how many will show up.
If its a lot then we will have to be quite on Teamspeak as we enter the lobby and then agree on a server. I don't expect it to go smoothly if their is a lot of us. Also once in game we will be split into different Armies, Although during the game you can try and swap.
I have only a very basic understanding of the Squad Leader role atm. Anyone else who understands better just setup a Squad and let our guys join you and lock your Squad up. Please mention on TS if you want to go Squad Leader.

If we have a big split between the Armies we should switch TS Channels. Should be fun hopefully.

Dejan is Chakal ......Sorry dude.
Strange Russian writing is Bike...Sorry man.

 Strela is considering hiring a server later in the month. That would be interesting because it allows us to control stuff like who can join the server and what size the teams are. He mentioned he might need a German speaker to translate a few things.

Thanks to the people who played Squad this evening , Thanks in particular to the guys who took on Squad Leader, The game is still evolving and can be kinda confusing. We had some fun and frustrations , But in the end it was great to meet up and hear all the voices again. Looks like we have enough to continue playing on a Sunday evening. So hope to see as many as possible next Sunday 16th July again.

We could ask Pepper......!?

The first (afghan village) and third map (forest) were cool - the second on was not so good. But all together, it was fun to play.

See you next sunday.

If this is still going and you got a server for us I'll jump on for numbers and old times sake. Only played a few times but I'll give it a whirl.

No point Ghost... Druss is slow, George is young... we can use his blood to get high and run faster.
We jump into some public server and play... Druss is great squad leader.
