Hey squaddies!



The Canadian Armed Forces team has been hard at work since the Modding Weekend to incorporate your feedback, smash bugs, and make all sorts of tweaks! We’re happy to present those changes now, as well as provide an update on Alpha 16 and the OWI Company Holiday.

CANADIAN ARMED FORCES UPDATE​

As mentioned, the CAF team has been hard at work polishing their release and are ready to roll out some of those changes! The update will release today, August 28, 2019, at 3 PM PDT. This is a separate update from Alpha 16, which we’ll touch on in just a minute.

Armored squaddies rejoice, the time has come to prove your mettle!




A good tank crew is the backbone of a team and we’ve noticed that the armored crews out there have not had the opportunity to strut their stuff: enter the official Track Attack Tank Tournament.



Our newly formed tournament committee will be hosting an evening of knockout tank action for teams of 3 people to compete for vehicular bragging rights in true 1v1 tank action!



Taking to the field in intense and brutal 15-minute rounds, teams will fight for the top spot in a knockout-style tournament leading to a grand finale, all streamed for your enjoyment!



We’re hoping this small but high-octane event will be the perfect practice our team needs for our future event organization and management.



Sign-ups for this event will be open on Tuesday 27th August 12:00 UTC with spots limited to 8 teams — we want to give it a shakedown run before going any bigger.



From there we can look to...

Hey squaddies!



We’re getting ready for another SquadChat!



The SquadChat will take place on Friday, August 23 at 11 AM PDT on our Twitch Channel: http://twitch.tv/JoinSquad. If you can’t make it, don’t worry: we’ll archive it on Youtube.



This time, we’ll be inviting Renn Farnell, Blueprint Designer, to chat about what he does on Squad during the day, and how he mods Squad during the off-hours. Dude pretty much lives Squad, so bring your tough questions! (Or post them in the discussion thread if you can’t make it — we’ll do our best to answer as many as possible.)

WHAT’S A SQUADCHAT?​


Good question! SquadChats are a casual discussion between the developers and YOU, the community. They’re a great opportunity to learn a little more about the team, including what powers them and how...

Hey squaddies!



We’re tracking an issue that’s preventing players from accessing servers.



Early reports from the team are pointing to an issue with Steam-Unreal functionality related to the FOnlineAsyncTaskSteamFindServers queue. It appears to be an issue that will impact other games (e.g., Mordhau) using the Epic Steam OSS will be unable to display servers.



We’ll keep an eye on the situation and let you know more once we do.



Hang in there, squaddies.

Hey squaddies!



We’ve got some slightly-unsual patch notes for you today.



But first, you can say goodbye to that annoying server filter bug! (The “show full servers” checkbox functionality was inverted. Whoops!)



Additionally, we’re introducing some experimental changes to the “dead dead” mechanic, as well as the way “instadeath” works. Let’s dig in a little.

PRE-ALPHA 13​


Prior to Alpha 13, the mechanics worked like this:



After dying and being revived, there was a 60-second time frame during which you were extra vulnerable. This meant that if you died again during these 60 seconds, you would become unrevivable (“dead dead”) and be instantly sent to the spawn screen. There was no UI indication of this vulnerability.



Taking a large caliber headshot (such as 50cal) would instantly make you unrevivable (instadeath).



This was a mechanic was originally added to convey some consequence of death, as well as a sense of tension...

Hey squaddies!



We’ve got some fresh reinforcements incoming: The Canadian Armed Forces are now fully deployed! That’s right, there’s a brand new faction in Squad and it’s already yours, completely free.




Originally known as CAFMOD, the team behind the new faction is straight from our modding community. We’re honored to be able to include them as official content for all players. What content is that, you ask?

So, what are you waiting for, soldier? Do it for The Great White North!

Hey squaddies!



We’re pretty excited by the release of Modding 2.0 and we wanted to share a little more about what that means.



First and foremost, it means that the Canadian Armed Forces mod is going to be released in the near future as free, official Squad DLC. That’s right: you will be getting a new faction soon, completely free of charge, no action required. O, Canada!

CANADIAN ARMED FORCES​




The arrival of CAF marks our first step towards including community-created content into Squad. This free expansion adds additional weapons, vehicles, and more, giving one of the world’s most well-known armies some well-deserved spotlight. Additionally, the update includes two Canadian maps, Quebec and Nanisivik, featuring snowy environments built for intense combined-arms combat.
