  • How about using Shortcuts for assets to have proper squadnames?

    Instead of naming the squad CAS try to name it Alpha and then have a shortcut for the role such as C, so the cas squad would be Alpha C.

    Transport T
    Armor A
    Infantery I or none.
    Mechanized Infantery or APC M

    I don't think I understand the logic behind this suggestion. What's the point, other than to confuse those who are not aware of these acronyms?

      They'd need to be standardized and published. The system isn't very intuitive unless you already know what it means.

        I prefer using the scientific notation prefix of PI to the power of my social security number followed by C for "Can't shoot so I'll fly an airplane" R for "Really like driving tanks" and I for "I like sniping"

          I think its fine, and simple just to have sq name and numbers, anything that goes beyond what you can read on the squad screen won't be widely known and so will confuse everyone. I don't even see the adantage to this really.

            INF is for Infantry =]

            TRAN for transport

            MINF for mech Infantry

              Short yes. Single letter, no.

              As long as everyone knows what it's about it's alright.

                How about assingning a number to each squad, so that way you can name them by that number instead of some over complicated version of "MECHINF"... oh, wait!

                  I think its a bit silly. Squad names in pubs need to be easily understood in their role as their is no unified strategy.

                    Makes sense. How about putting the letter of the corresponding alphabet in front then? If Cas is squad four it would be D CAS with d for delta, if armor is squad 7 it would be G tanks with G for Gamma. Between zhe queens english and whatever they use south of dixie and a german with a c- in english, making out numbers in voip isnt always easy.

                      But what is the point? What are you trying to get across to others?

                        Why the need to even have Gamma? Usually when I call for a squad, I go by their squad number.

                          Is there any point to this, or is it just to make it look nicer? I'm kinda confused here.

                            It would be nice if they could program it so that you have to label the squad instead of just the pre-assigned alpha bravo ect.

                            I think the standard INF, APC, CAS, NINJA INF, ect are fine how they are, no need to fix what's not broken.

                              Ok, as long as ?SPLOITS squad name is reserved for 5 man jack in the box sniper teams conducting close combat missions.
