    I thought about the benefits of would include the parties of players in the combat mechanics in the game. the parties player communication foccused? or it would involve a more important role combat level ?. For example the presence of leaders in a party with buffs, including mechanical and other fps.

    I was thinking that it might be entertaining possibility to incorporate sutile buffs in parties that a player can execute . maybe perhaps like battlefield 2 , with the habilities of troop leaders ( with cooldown that able to order supplies , detection in selected area enemios map of combat, etc. )

    What do you think?

    There is already an HP buff around squad leader. They also plan to add other buffs. They also plan to add Warlords which will function similarly to commanders in BF2(aside from the fact that they will be heavily encouraged to actually fight alongside their team, not sit on spawn and use their abilities).

    I thought this would be a thread about guys with wrenches, wearing coveralls, dancing on tables with lamp shades on their heads. I guess my ideas for mechanics at parties is different from yours.

    No wrenches and coveralls in the Kaldor Draigo video
  7. The lack of inner squad or squad only game mechanics is worrisome. We're surely more than halfway through Alpha and we've yet to start seeing any new inner squad mechanics since Alpha started.

    We have 1 squad leader buff and the Mobile Spawn that have been with us since Alpha started and that's it. Most players totally ignore the fact there's a mobile spawn up for thier squad, for whatever reason they'd rather run on foot from CP to CP or from their DZ. Nobody really cares about their squad leader buff or even knows where there squad leader is located the entire match.

    Medics in EC are getting screwed over by healing ammo boxes and healing Rhino, so that's less player interaction required. We have no ammo/support type class so that's less player interaction.

    Fast travel via /suicide(redeploy) is the norm, it doesn't even count as a death which is outrageous IMO and immersion breaking. Players should be using Teleport homer or some other inner squad ability to get to the fight faster rather than killing themselves to fast travel.

    Anybody can revive anybody, Medics can heal anyone, not just squad mates. Why would players feel the need to stay or work with their squad? We can do everything with random players from any squad.

    Until we start seeing more "squad only" type buffs, squad only abilities, squad only perks, squad experience benefits, squad spawning, squad drop pod, squad aerial insert(dropped in via Thunderhawk), Squad Teleport, squad summoning, etc, nobody's going to care about playing as a squad.

    Interesting point of view, probably we need more time (maybe the official release of the game) for player's maduration in a more competitive way, to they use all benefits for party (the actual benefits).

    By the way, developers mention in detail the existence in a future of different types of "party buffs" in the game? or what orientation it will have?

    We can expect something like you said ?, because it sound pretty cool. ("squad only" type buffs, squad only abilities, squad only perks, squad experience benefits, squad spawning, squad drop pod, squad aerial insert(dropped in via Thunderhawk), Squad Teleport, squad summoning, etc")
