I hope that's sarcasm.

Otherwise the purpose of squads is so you don't have to be Rambo.

No it's not.. I've never used clans/squads in any games except maybe Warhawk in like the first year or so PS3 was out.

Forming a squad with people you know just guarantees that you're going to play with guys that understand teamwork.

Unless you like running around on your own that is.

Sometimes that works well, too. BF3 is such a hectic game that I find it hard to do a lot of teamwork. By hectic I mean that you can catch a round at any moment.

Does anyone else suffer from really bad lag?

I'm still not quite clear on the purpose behind the squads... what is it?

My gt is: XxIAmLegendxX

you can spawn on your sqaudmates. A balanced squad allows you to hold a position for a while. Once some of the people "trying out" the game die down, you'll see it better in action.

Another reason is, it's VERY hard to penetrate an area as just 1 person without taking the long way around on your own. Getting spotted once can screw you over. As a squad, you can focus fire. That's why you get suppression bonus, assists, etc. It's telling you to do more than just kill.

It's really a hard dynamic to explain unless you truly experience the glory of it. That's why BF3 is not a game for everyone too. A lot of people prefer being lonewolves ala COD style so they can claim they're the best.

My teammates NEVER point out an enemy. It's so irritating, if everyone pointed enemies out on the team, we'd be unstoppable.

Oh well COD comes out in a week. I'll come back to Battlefield once the noobs leave.

Yeah I have to leave squads sometimes cause if I get put in one with 3 people sniping in the middle of nowhere, takes forever to get back into the action.

I'm best when I'm sniping (although I'm stuck using the first sniper rifles at the moment thanks to the scope glare) and all I do is spot enemies. You get points for it, but damn when people are running around with automatic weapons and you've got a semi-automatic rifle it benefits you to tell your teammates where the enemies are!

I know how you feel though, it's often that I'm the only one spotting.
