An oft requested feature for the game is to make it easier to play alongside your friends in the same battle. This is something we have also wanted to build for a long time and now the time is here for the first version to make its public appearance. So in the upcoming build ‘Jefferson’ you will be able to create a squad, grab your friends and join match-making as a group.
Press ‘Create Squad’ on the bottom of the Characters page and see what happens
How does it work?
The first thing you do is to choose what type of squad you want:
You can currently choose between ‘Guard’, ‘Infantry’, ‘Paratrooper’, ‘Recon’, ‘Armor’ & ‘Fighter Pilots’ and you can of course only create a squad where you have a character that fits. In this first iteration the only difference between Guard and Infantry is the number of character slots available, but we kept them as separate entities so we can add functionality to them in future builds.
Take a look below and see how it works:
This is the first iteration and we know that there are some obvious things to add for the next iterations. Some of these could be – Join a specific battle as a squad – Join a battle being fought by your own Assault Team – Keep Squad chat channel in action game – After a battle continue to the next as the same group – Limit number of squad members to 2 for non-Veteran members – Tag Squad players on the scoreboard & maybe charge a few Warfunds or Gold to start a new squad?
BUT we wanted to get this out to you guys to play with as soon as possible as we feel that it is a welcome addition to the game. :-)
