  • Squad hopping

    Just wanted to bring that up again since some folks here at TG apparently thinks it's ok to do..

    Just to make sure, if I am in a squad with a buncha folks not using voip, or sitting on a hill sniping rather than arming the mcom, and move to one with folks using voip or playing tactically, that is bad?

      Why would that be bad?

      It would be cool if you tried to encourage those players to get on teamspeak and attempt to help their team with the objective before bailing on them, but it isn't required.

      The concern over squad hopping, is the ability to get one player behind enemy lines and have the entire rest of the team spawn out of him.

        I'd do it and I really don't think anyone would fault you for doing it.

          That's not squad hopping. Squad hopping is when you notice a person jump in every single squad on a team to try and see where he can get the best spawn and doing this every time they die throughout the round.

              Re: Squad hopping

              To explain it further..

              We had a TG-taged guy switching from say Charlie to Bravo squad to get a spawn closer to the MCOM (I.E the lighthouse on the map I never remember the name of) and then switched back to Charlie so they could spawn in on him instead of spawning in the main base.

              When asked he just mumbled something about not being told it was against the rules..

              So now it's explained for everyone so we won't have any more "confusions" about the rules regarding squad hopping.

                to bad this is a solid tactic for high level playing and could possibly lead to more intense playing, but rules are rules

                  Yep :(, its unrealistic but quite interesting and it brings a whole new tactical level of play to the game. It is amazing what you can do with spawn off of anyone.

                      It'd be quite interesting to see how fast this tactic would be overly abused if allowed at TG.

                        I did not mean having everyone spawn off one person in the back, that's just cruddy gameplay, I meant Having multiple people push out in different directions and surprising them by overloading one side or another as you try to break through choke points. Obviously this could be taken advantage of but it could also be used in other ways, and of course this doesn't matter to start with because it is unrealistic so it's against the primer.
