Hi All,
I've come up with an idea but simply don't have the technical experience to make it. I have a light understanding of the Unreal 3 scripting and know that this in theory might not be too difficult to do. Just beyond me. (My biggest accomplishment is to create a mod that slows time down but speeds up the character (effectively bullet time). Not complex.

Anyway, the idea is to force people to work as a squad. Its all well and good having squads available in so many games but people don't work as a squad and its simply more interesting, in my opinion, to work as a squad. The idea would be to make the squad captain the spawn point. This would mean that to kill a squad, the captain must be killed thus the squad must protect him/her.

If the squad member moves too far from the captain he/she will receive a warning before starting to take damage (like going off the edge of the battlefield in....battlefield.). When a squad member moves too far away, the squad captain should receive a message saying that they have left a member behind.

I understand that there are some problems about this, such as selfish players and the way of killing a squad seems a little iffy. Unless when the captain dies another member becomes the captain. This would create some fierce fire fights until one squad wins. As a team would keep respawning untill all dead (perhaps a small timer would be necessary to stop them from respawning instantly)

Anyway, I'd love to see something like that!

It wouldn't work well. Players often stray from other players for many reasons in the game, and teamplay in UT doesn't come from hanging around in a bunch, it comes from identifying and tackling multiple objectives at once.

Acting like a squad is the best way to get defeated by a grenade or a rocket easily.

Unfortunately...

Very true if your squad goes in, and the other team (squad) has a rocket launcher....well i suppose u can geuss the rest. Still a very good idea.
