I also think we should all be able to play at least another kit. Some maps are more engi heavy than others. You need to be slightly adaptable I feel. Also pilots, we need people that can stay in the air without crashing. Helis and prob jets.
Can't wait to get my new rig up and going. Got my self the I5-2500k for the same price as the i5-2500. must now save for a decent graphics card to replace my 5770 with.
The round before that was intensely epic. When the whole squad was in the BMP cruising round to flags. Loved the dynamic - get near the flag, infantry unloads and then moves up with the bmp covering. Super effective. We should definately try that again.
Speaking about squad leading I would like to be considered to lead a squad. Not from an egotistical standpoint - just that I've had some experience squadleading in arma and really enjoy that side of things. Leadership to me is about facilitating the strengths of the squad and kind of sheparding that towards a common goal. I dont believe in dictatorial leadership - humble yet assertive leadership is my game - calling on the wisdom of the group as much as possible but making sure that the outcome is effective and goal orientated. Anyway - Im sure some guys can attest to this. Saying all that - If others are more suitable I have no problem following either. As long as we kick ass and take names I'll follow to grave. Respawn after respawn =p .
Also - if we have multiple squads it could be worthwile structuring them into infantry/ mechanized and logistics/ support. Had a bit of a taste of multiple squads working together with vehicles and infantry and we dominated. Transport alone is something that can be a game changer - getting a squad behind enemy lines and then supporting/ reinforcing them thorughout their op. Dig it! getting excited just thinking about it.
Oh thats another thing by the way folks. Keep in mind that in a squad you are a mobile spawn point so if you are the last guy standing and being hunted, go to ground and have your squad re-formup and take them out together.
This is all very exciting! Just wish I could play as often as I would like to! Between work, studying and family! Dammit!
Just clear up a few things about the squad, regard to the league.
Current we only have one leaque squad which can only consist of 8 players per match, this said we could consider a 2nd squad,
A squad and B squad. (the down side is you might end up competing against one another, unless we can prove squad A is in a better league than B.)
"A" squad needs to be the better and more determined players who will, without fail, be available for every match, for RL issue we'll have reserves. Those that have played in the league before, know how much fun it was,but also knows how taxing/tiring it gets towards the end.
"B" squad can be for the misfits and those keen for a match now again. Here we will fill the sqaud in almost, a first come, first serve basses if need be.
So with this in mind we'll have 4 squads each consisting of 4 players (2 squads for "A" and 2 for ""B")
this means we should look at 4 squad leaders and one Platoon leader.
The Platoon leader will be required to organise the leaque match's, bookings etc and co-ordinate the squad leaders.
Moving over to multi these squad leaders can grab a squad and other members can join on them. If by luck we have all squads on , the chances are we can full oneside, as attacker/defenders etc. Hate to know what ppl will think when all oneside is running with myBB tags lol.
All above is open for debate and better suggestions.
