The only thing available is the Firing Range where you can practice to see how the different weapons handle.

I did watch the video, albeit at work, with no sound. I rewatched it again yesterday. There's some good info there. As for the picture, I caught a glimpse of it as the game was loading, but it was very brief. Anyway, I'm going to give it another go now, and see if I don't have some better luck this time.

Squad is nothing like ARMA. Unless you're in a clan that plays custom ARMA scenarios, all ARMA is is Altis Life or City RPG - which both suck.
Squad is the successor to Project Reality. Look it up you don't know what it's about. It's a lot more focused on realism than ARMA ever was or will be - but not at the expense of gameplay.

And yeah, you can't really play PR or Squad without a mic. Communication is key.
KDR does not matter at all. It's about objectives and map control. Again, communication is key to this.

Caved in and got it during this past weekend sale. It's awesome. Can't wait for them to finish it. I do also wish that the animations for player movement were a little better. Maybe that is just the state of the game?

Will be interesting to see if they can incorporate vehicles and aircraft.

I took the plunge and bought this in the Steam sale.

1st impressions, is it's pretty decent. I've been placed with good team mates and squad leaders so far, they'v been polite and understanding that I am new to the game. Explaining how the game works whilst we've been playing. I like that you are limited to the number of roles in the squad so not everyone can go sniper or rocket launcher.

I especially love how the voice comms work in game, local, team, squad all separate so you don't jam the comms with chatter, the only thing I have to deal with now is people that say 'Over and Out' which frustrates me as a military person because you can't be over then out. 'Over' means time for you to talk, 'Out' means I'm off don't talk, so you can't say them both at the same time. It really annoys me when it is said in films too.

Anyway, I'm glad I bought it. now to get a group of mates together and play it as a proper squad

In my 2½ years of playing PR and Squad, I've never heard someone say stuff like that laughingsmiley.gif

Playing with randoms who know how to play, is good. Playing with people you know is just great - even if you don't see much action.
I've had one or two PR battles where my squad only saw combat for maybe 10 minutes, in a 1½ hour battle. Still one of the greatest clan battles I've been in:thumb:

It was very constant, and really annoying! lol
But it is a small issue that is personal to me, so it doesn't ruin the game. This is the only game where I actually react to being shot at, by running for cover. Normally in other FPS you just kinda run at them and shoot to. But I feel more immersed on this game which makes me react more appropriately, plus your team rely on you to call out direction and provide cover fire so they can run to cover etc.

From what i've played so far i've run into a lot of cool people, most are very open to new players and very nice. I have ran into some rather annoying ones, and been in squads that weren't so good. But more often than not i've been in squads that want to work together and play serious.

Had an awesome moment where i was covering from a compound while my teammates were crossing the road and about to round a corner. Then i noticed an enemy infantryman sitting around the corner right before they were about to round it and had to tell them to hold up and took him out. It was perfect coordination.

"Leaked" vehicle footage from a developer during a recent play test session!

The vehicle hype is growing amongst the community. Especially for those like myself that have been crossing 4km X 4km maps on foot for almost a year! biggrin.gif
