Now that I have one more month of full CM, nearly everyday, on my little western european timezone :

- Alpha is regular. Often invisible unless with a good SL or aSL. With such, this squad can get some light on herself for some rounds.

- Bravo is defensive. They are the most obedient, calm, disciplined squaddies I could ever lead as a SL. But, they are really unskilled and useless at making assault. Even with their good will, they cannot perform an offensive task.

- Charlie is professional squad. They are good at everything, they can either perform defensive, offensive, scouting task. But, it would be a waste for command to let them behind. Usually, they are on the frontline, they are here to get the job done, nothing more, nothing less. But damn, they are so boring to play with.. They have no fun comms, they.. well.. only gameplay instead of roleplay, in my honest opinion.

- Delta is gamble. This squad can lead itself, mostly due to have some of the most badasses of the badasses of the PFCs. They are highly individualistics that can follow your or obey you only if they deem you worthy of their efforts. That is why they have not many main SLs leading them. But yet, they are the most fun squad to play, it's really easy to create bonds with several of them, making some interesting RP opportunities and gameplay opportunies, as you can never be alone on the battlefield. As a SL, the decisive moment was when I pushed accross river to save another squad marine (dunno if it was Alpha Spec). I got there, told them to charge. Queen arrived, screeched at me and the Alpha saved. I got dragged off by the queen. And the whole squad decided to keep pushing, follwing/hunting the queen from the northern bank of the river to the northest cave entrance, just north of TFort. They rekt everything on their path, until they managed to save me. Less than 40 minutes later : marines major.

Damn, only Delta, if I can chose every time and not get random. Delta, every. single. time. For the fun of playing, for the fun of trying decisive shit. For the fun of losing in deadchat. For the fun of winning, wandering the caves with my squaddies.

It's well established that Bravo is best-o

Bravo is a bunch of nerds who fail horribly at combat and fighting in general, also the quietest of the squads and therefore a bunch of betas. I'm allowed to say this as I used to be a dedicated Bravo back when I was a baldie.

Good FoB builds though.

You can't really choose what each squad's unique characteristic. Any squad can be anything it mainly depends on who's playing what role and not everybody gets the role they and even sometimes squad preferences don't give you the beloved squad you are always in.

If Bravo is the quietest, then that only means none of the other squads can hear the sound of battle over how much they are talking.

Charlie squad will always be the best on all terms no question, especially since they're by default the best color: Purple.
Purple is indeed the best color.

Something I've realized is the amount of players now joining Charlie/Delta squad because of this thread. Lots of fresh faces around.
Charlie squaddie, PFC Ruben Dario.

Just ran a round where I was in Delta.
Whole squad got nuked because of Alpha and their OB's
Coincidentally, we lost that round.

I firmly believe that Charlie is the best squad. The people who stick to Charlie for me personally are my buddies and I trust them to get shit done, like Greene, Jester, Chubs, Uriel, Rookie, they're all pretty dope people. I've also noticed Charlie has much better squad radio banter than others, with Delta being the second best in banter status.

Alpha are those kids who always sit in the front row in class, buncha feggits.
Bravo is the middle child no one pays attention to.
Charlie is purple, which is gay of course.
Delta for life.


Edit: okay Charlie is green now.......interesting!

With the amount of bandwagoners jumping on Delta now, might try Alpha for a change.

Could this thread be banned by the Devs? For attracting people to certain squads?...

If so...
