  • What is "/tell squad"" in the game for?

    So today I had been messing around in the game and as a squad leader, I typed "/tell squad" and my entire squad had gotten a message. Now I have thought about why this was ever implemented. It could be used as a different way to talking to your squad since your chat tabs ALWAYS which to platoon after you check your platoon menu. But other than that, I see no real implementations of this in a regular squad/platoon. Does anyone have an idea or a possible use of this? Also if you guys have any tactics which could use this, speak up incase it could be used as a practical method.

    EDIT: Did you get this to work?

    I tried today and only managed to Tell user 'sqaud' a message

    but /squadsay will work as below too

    so

    [sl] /squadsay If you can pull a gal type /replay gal

    END EDIT

    The squad could use /reply to answer your /tell

    eg
    [sl] /tell squad who can pull a gal type /reply gal

    [bob] /replay gal
    [jone] /replay gal
    [ted] /replay reaver

    [sl] ok bob can you put a gal, thanks

      There's no reason other squad members shouldn't see who can take which role though VTS. Just use squad chat.


      Really, you'd need a reason for private messaging an entire squad, except they don't know it was en-masse. Perhaps asking a chatty squad to cut down on comms use? But then you'd catch someone who isn't talking...

        I may have gotta the command wrong here, but I have done it and people in my squad had said they had gotten a message.

          Probably implemented to give mic-less squad leaders a more direct way of giving orders.

            Yep squad chat tab would be the best place to use, since you just type the message and the squad will get it

            many ways to do the same thing, if you use macros this might help eg on a g15 keyboard
            you could assign G1 as /squadsay JUMP JUMP JUMP then press G1 to run the macro

                  Does it broadcast with a little bloop noise?
                  If is does that that definitely helps people notice important orders... of course you could always just use a mic for that
