Anyone here played this shit? Its an offshoot of Project Reality, I love it but it has some mighty big flaws.

The whole Radio/HAB system is the most retarded shit I've ever seen.
Whoever did with the vehicle physics must have thrown a hotdog down a hallway and used that as their reference.
No way to distinguish a 300 hour player from a 3 hour one.
Most servers basically never have admins on or they just refuse to kick/ban people?
Its so easy to grief one man can take down his own team EASILY if you know what to do, and like I said people running servers won't do shit.
Teams are ALWAYS stacked and there's no auto-balance or even a simple team scramble between matches.

But I can't stop playing this shit, its addicting somehow.

Yeah I played some of it on the free weekend. I still prefer PR but it was decent

>No way to distinguish a 300 hour player from a 3 hour one
I don't want to be one of those "gitgudXD" fags but I feel like the barrier to entry isn't that high compared to other games considering most of it is learning how to play with your team
>Most servers basically never have admins on or they just refuse to kick/ban people?
Yeah this one is really annoying because there's never a middle ground with this shit, either the mods are really finicky and ban people at the drop of a hat for literally anything or they literally just let anyone shit up the server and never do anything about it
>Teams are ALWAYS stacked and there's no auto-balance or even a simple team scramble between matches.
This is probably the worst problem but once you actually do get a full team for both sides it turns out being pretty fun

As I said, fun game, but I think all the maps and scenarios/mods for PR just spoiled me

I play just infrequently enough to never get even competent at it, but it just scratches a certain itch sometimes.

>Most servers basically never have admins on or they just refuse to kick/ban people?

That's why you don't play most servers, you find a couple ones you like and just accept that you're gonna be waiting in the queue to get in. There are a couple I like, Bella's Battleground is pretty decent in my experience, but it entirely depends on where you live. Also playing on a Chinese server with a friend and having absolutely no idea what is happening is sometimes mighty good fun if the Ping isn't too bad.

I was considering trying this but I'm worried it's not very immersive. I enjoy realism, which means no HUD, no overlay menus, etc. Currently the only game I play is Insurgency(Sandstorm) 4-5 hours a week. I'm interested in the more open space, large-scale battles with vehicles and complex squad interaction, and the overall in-depth military tactical logistic aspects of combat, but for the love of god do they have to murder the immersion to make it possible?

It's a fantastic game and if it's anything like Project Reality it will just keep getting better and better as more maps, factions and features get added over the years. By far my most played game on steam.

Squad is plenty immersive. I disagree that no hud = realism. Squads realism comes in the form of utter chaos, suppressive fire at enemies in cover,missed shots, getting pinned down and relying on your squad. Stuff like that

That is generally how a realistic firefight goes down, not creeping around on a front-line and killing an enemy in one quick burst.

Also, playing as a squad leader is one of the most difficult, unique and rewarding multiplayer experiences you can find imo. But if you have 4-5 hours a week to play it might not be the game for you. Some matches can last over 2 hours where you barely accomplish anything because your squad is retarded.

Oh and another shitty major oversight.

>Have kit with red dot sight for close range
>Want to swap to same kit but with scope
>Costs full amount of ammo even though no real difference

WOOOOOOOW

Never played ARMA but Squad is SUPER realistic mil-sim. You spend 90% of the game doing nothing but standing around!

If you're standing around doing nothing, you're playing it wrong. If you're not hoofing it across the map with your buddies while occasionally engaging the enemy if you're lucky, then you're playing the game wrong.

I specifically mean realistic as in real life you don't have magical floating images pop up in front of your vision

Such as when you call in artillery or air strikes you use handheld equipment, communicate through radio, carry physical satellite maps of the area of operations. When you look at a map your character should physically lower their weapon and pull out a tablet or laminated map, checking ammo in a magazine is done by peering through the tiny holes on the side of the magazine to get a rough idea of how many you have. What games do this as well as having realistic combat?
