  1. Seriously though, even if you don't play Squad, consider joining and picking a Game Selection Role from #role-assignment . If you ever want SG to have anything to do with Arma or such, this is one way to let us know.
  2. MILSIM GROUP SQUAD DISCORD -------------------★--ANNOUNCEMENT -★------------------- Hey, SG! We recently switched to an application based Membership program for our Squad Division. This is an effort to gather active Squad and MilSim players into an organized group, under one tag. Get started by opening a ticket on our Squad Discord: CLICK HERE -------- REQUIREMENTS ------------------------------------------------------------------- -------- PERKS ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ -------- APPLICATION ------------------------------------------------------------------------- _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ If you are just getting into these kinds of games, or maybe you only like Arma or titles other than Squad: you are all still welcome! There more of us there are, the more we can do and the more we can influence the direction of the community! Hope to see some apps. - SilentGuns - Squad Server Manager
  3. Hello, fellow epic gamers. TL:DR upfront: We've created a new SG Steam Group geared towards players who enjoy MilSim and Tactical / HC game titles. If you are into some of the more hardcore tactical shooters and milsim titles, this group is for you. It will help us better organize events and give us a clearer picture before pursuing future projects (servers). In the future I hope to bring on more officers for a variety of titles. LINK: https://steamcommunity.com/groups/sgmilsim What kinds of games? Thank you for your time. Please invite your friends ====================================YOU JUST LOST THE GAME===========================================================
  4. 28/03/21 More QOL/automation for low-level rule enforcement. Added a new Partner role for discord for any clan/community partners. Added new new notification role"PMC" for anyone who is not interested in seeding BUT wants to be notified when a SG Squad is being organized. The rank of Operator and above can @PMC to ping anyone who has subscribed. V2 changes that I forgot to put in here last month: https://steam-gamers.net/forums/topic/95897-squad-v2/ 2

  10. In Steam-Gamers, whitelist is awarded to players who show or have in the past shown great usefulness, dedication and/or loyalty towards our servers. There are currently three ways to get whitelisted: 1. BECOME A LOYALIST* *Loyalist applies PER SERVER. *Staff members are excluded. *excessive AFKing discouraged. 2. BECOME A OPERATOR 3. BE A MEMBER OF AN AFFILIATED CLAN Whitelist may be revoked at any time, but mostly for breaking server rules.
  11. 01/17/21 The Best Maps server has received a slight name change to [SG] STEAM-GAMERS| BEST MAPS US EAST | RECRUITING | The map rotation for the Best Maps server has been reworked: The rules for ALL Squad servers have been updated with revised seeding and range map rules. Check here:

  13. INTRO If you've noticed on the Squad discord, I added some new roles and ranks. These exist to highlight and reward dedicated Squad players in our community, as well as help make for better staff picks for the servers. This will also give any future SM a better picture of the member-base. Most of these come with new special discord roles and colors, but only two come with whitelist. RANKS Operator - This rank is awarded by management to dedicated and active members who have contributed significantly to our Squad servers. Loyalist - This rank can be requested by members who belong to the TOP 30 most active players (PLAYTIME) in a server. This is awarded based on activity of the previous month, for 1 month. This is a WHITELIST rank. Lieutenant - Has 300+ hours the servers OR is endorsed by a Operator as an active Squad Leader. Sergeant - Has 200+ hours on the servers. Corporal - Has 100+ hours on the servers. Private - Has 20+ hours on the servers New discord channels: BONUS - LOYALTY RAFFLE - FEB 5 I am raffling a 30 Euro game between next months' Loyalists . Here is what you need to do: Be among the TOP 30 most active players on SG Squad servers in January. All times are cumulative. Join the Squad Discord: https://discord.com/invite/c7agZA9aZv Request the Loyalist rank in the Squad Discord in Febuary. ??? Potentially profit. *All raffles are currently out of my own pocket. Don't expect them every month.
  14. WHAT IS SEEDING? TL:DR right away: Randoms typically do not want to join a server with 0/100 players. This is why in Squad (and many other games), special efforts are taken to pull in randoms and regulars, in order to grow a sustainable mass of players for a full game. In SG there are two sets of additional seeding rules for pre-skirmish and skirmish. Jensen's range: 1. Do not PvP 2. Do not shoot down helicopters 3. Just try out your weapons on the non-player targets. Skirmish : 1. Play the center objective. If there is an equal amount of flags then the objective will be agreed upon by players or determined by the admin. 2. Do not go beyond the center objective, either attack it or defend it. You may claim your own flags before the center objective. 3. Please PLEASE do not build your HAB on the center objective, build it the next flag over. 4. Do not attack enemy FOBs and HABs. 5. Seeding rules apply until 25 v 25 and when the admin broadcasts that the server is LIVE. Remember, the objective of seeding is to build up a sustainable population. Please follow the seeding rules and do not try to make other players rage-quit. WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP? 1. We have a special discord for our Squad servers, join it and invite your friends: discord.gg/kgCTU492hb 2. Go to the "#seeder-assignment" channel and react to become a seeder: 3. You will now be notified whenever the server is officially being seeded. Of course you can contact an admin and request them to start a seed, if none are active. Initiative is welcome and will be noticed. 4. Be patient, our squad server is new and still establishing a player-base, this will take time. It might not always work but when it does, going from 3 to 100 can feel amazing. The best time to start a seed is even before people get home from work and school. If the server is empty, I personally just play minecraft on the side while I wait for a few other players to join. 5. "But Silent, Squad is an expensive niche game, I can't afford it" . Don't worry my friend, just bookmark the page and wait for the winter sale, if you like hardcore shooters then it will be worth the money: https://store.steampowered.com/app/393380/Squad/ Thank you!
