    I believe that it would be useful to provide the DEVs with some feedback about your experiences, making use of the extra impact we have as a community.

    Feedback:
    • Every single feature from Squad is amazing, but the amount of features is just absurd low for now.
    • The biggest problem is the balance between maps and factions - you join up a game, and you know you are gonna have a tough time if you are either the militia, or insurgents.
    • Specific example: win ratio on logar as us has been at least 65-75% for the us.
    • Tired of constantly playing the same, that's why I'm just waiting for the new update.
    • Ins is just too buggy to play. Right now I just left the server because a cache again spawned on an Ins resupply (map: kokan; location not reported). The resupply car is now bugged and can not be used. This happens a lot.
    • Bug: if you destroy a car on its spawn it doesn't disappear before the next spawns which then leads to then never ending cycle of that car blowing up.
    • Often you cant spawn as Ins as you can only spawn on caches... but sometimes there are no caches.
    • Vehicles get stuck far too often, not consistent with behaviour during testing.
    • Most requested admin function: ability to warn players.
    • Want easier administration workflow for base-rape (could extend to spawn camping, too).
    Post-deadline:
    • [Development] seems to have slowed right down. They don't seem to have a proper Project Manager.
    Top recommended actions:
    • Add more variety - add community maps, add different layers in new parts of old maps, use different factions, &c. Get creative.
    • Fix balance quickly when issues are detected. Don't wait for new features to include alongside balance fixes.
    • Improve/extend admin commands/tools: adding a warn command is an easy first step.
    Knowing the relative importance of each and adding any extra feedback you have to this would be valuable.

    Id like to add that Ins is just too buggy to play. Right now I just left the server because a cache again spawned on an Ins resupply. The resupply car is not bugged and can not be used. This happens alot. Also if you destroy a car on its spawn it doesn't disappear before the next spawns which then leads to then never ending cycle of that car blowing up.

    Also lots of times where you cant spawn as Ins as you can only spawn on caches... but sometimes there are no caches. Had to run next to stop people leaving.

    Also, they should give the vehicles more torque or just make all of them all weel drive because it gets stuck on everyrock which is rediciluous, you've never seen a Russian BTR stuck at anywhere. Or just give us a command to get rid of the blown up(at base), stucked vehicles.

    Weird thing is they all use to have more when I tested them in a testing session. They seemed to reduce it on release.

    It happens on all Ins maps.
    Also if you put an Ammo crate too close to a cache you cant use it unless you dislocate your body and hump the crate until it says 'F'.

    Do you have any contacts in the Squad DEV team? Our previous contact from the server licensing process has moved on and I haven't got a response from anyone else yet.
