  • Your Impressions of Squad

    With the weekend access for Airborne and Commander backers set to start tomorrow, I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread where people can provide their impressions and feedback from their game experiences. I only ask that you all remember that Squad is still very much a WIP and in a pre-alpha state.

    Remember! Access starts 11:00 EST tomorrow, Friday 24th!

      Agreed. I'm glad they're tweaking the movement speeds too. The first few gameplay videos I saw included unreal infantry speeds.

            I think the TG deal comes in at the Squad leader level which means we wait a little longer. I think this is pre alpha access and we are in on the closed alpha access. I could be wrong but that's how I understood it.

              So, I just got done playing for about 30 mins. The biggest piece of feedback I can provide is that you WILL need to relearn how to shoot. It's nice knowing that where your crosshair is, is where the bullet will go. No more PR deviation is nice. However, compensating for the heavy recoil is the new name of the game. It's going to take some practice. I definitely suggest using the Shift key to settle your aim and zoom with ironsights. It definitely helps.

              I'm still messing around with my mouse sensitivity and that is part of the problem.

                  Negative phenom880.

                  Right now only the Squad Leader ($70) and Rifleman ($30) tiers are available to pre-purchase. Squad leader gets you into the Closed Alpha which starts in about 8 weeks. Rifleman gets you Steam Early Access when the game is released on Steam.

                      This is correct. We are Closed Alpha access level, not pre-Alpha. They have control of the servers right now for net code optimization, tweaks, etc. and it makes perfect sense. Hang tight, we're not that far away. In the meantime, come play some PR on our server on the weekends.

                        Anyone actually played the game so far? Give us some meat! We 'squad leaders' are starving here!

                          Rat, Squad is amazing. The sounds are amazing and right now are the thing make me want to play it non stop.

                          I will be streaming it next weekend so if your around watch me on twitch.tv/bolagnaise and I'll run over some mechanics, we are meant to be getting prone next weekend so that will make it more enjoyable for SAW gunners.

                          It has bugs, a lot of the game is unfinished but god damn it is sooooo much fun. I played PR and this is a clear progression of that game.

                            There are a lot of videos out from the weekend gameplay. Here's one that captures what Squad is all about:

                            Btw, this map is called Kohat. It's one of the ones I made and am still working on.
