    I at least attempt to find a squad with differing squad perks not only for the obvious reason but because it shows they generally know "wtf is going" and are more likely to PTFO and such (tho sometimes just chance of course). Even if that means I join one with only two guys. Or switch squads a lot. Or find another server.

    And all this is why the Quits % stat is bs imo.

    ^ i honestly dont mind playing without a squad, recon is the best class to play solo, especially with the ammo perk, stay far and youre good.

    anyways FINALLY reached my 1.5 KDR.

    Finding squads that put up orders is all I ever try and do.

    Wish they just changed Orders back to hitting Q while aiming at a flag. Now hit Q, move mouse down, hit Enter, realize it didn't register. Try and aim more at flag while in the middle of combat, do it again, didn't work. Try again, there we go, possibly die after. This was done all in the name of making Comma Rose more of a staple of gameplay, been saying it from the start of this thread, it's just a clunky piece of UI, I don't think it's needed. /rage :laugh:

    Agree 100%. I have died multiple times while trying to mark an objective point for my squad:(
    I notice that since they changed it a lot less people seem to use the squad commands. Which sucks

    Yeah, I don't even bother setting them anymore, trying to set an objective while sprinting forward is harder than qualifying for the Olympics. And even if you managed to succeed, it probably won't register, then you have to finely aim your cross-hairs as you are sprinting over uneven ground. And that still probably won't register even if you manager it. But hey, it's awesome that the only way they could make the Comma Rose useful was by moving a needed option to it and forcing us to use something, then making sure it doesn't even work right.

    The cool down time on spotting it what makes the current order system not function properly. DICE should remove the placing of orders from the same criteria as other spotting functions and therefore not have a cool down from spamming the order (it be used to grief ... 3 other people... who have the choice to leave a lame squad....). :shadedshu

    I did not like the previous spotting system. It causes me the issues of not being able to guide a squad and get points for and from it's members. I hammer "Q" far too often in directions away from the flag I'm currently at or plan to attack. I was always unable to fly a chopper and place order effective or cohesively.

    Have you never had the problem of capping a flag and right at the last moment before getting the points you spot an enemy and change the squad orders by mistake?

    Also the comma rose does not pop up instantly which defeats any attempt to have an intuitive mouse controlled selection menu. ( ie nano suit controls in Crysis before EA made the game suck ass.)

    Agreed and I'm a serial spotter and do it to 'fish people out' I don't otherwise see and such so I hated playing leader cause I was constantly spamming "Attack this objective" etc over and over and over and also, like you said, accidentally changing orders.

    I never ran across many cooldown issues, I can be standing there have marked nothing and using Comma Rose while looking at a flag (not directly at the letter, maybe slightly below it) and it won't mark the flag, seems you have to be dead on cross hairs on that letter. But yes I spot often so many times orders were changed to an enemy being spotted. I like your solution of making it a different cooldown, would work much better than the Comma Rose setup.

    I'm surprised you had issues with leaving orders with just Q, you don't mention having issues with the Comma Rose system. I just find it all too clunky, just doesn't work in combat, I find myself stopping to use it, so I just never use it.

    Just cause it allows the file and no one has asked you to change it as yet doesn't mean that it's not against the rules. They have asked that they not be bigger than 100 height as bigger is a bit obnoxious. Looking at yours, I agree.

    Your sig is bigger. Images in sig should be banned imo.

    Anyway, the game is now €20. I'm seriously thinking about getting it but I don't know...

    I know this is a tactical game, but sometimes you have to win by just killing a bunch a dudes. This time our squad stayed together. Not for teamwork or anything, but just because it was often too dangerous to wonder too far due to the near constant stream of enemy gunfire.

    That is why I have a better K/D on 32 man servers. TPU'ers love the cluster fight of 64 and I get butt raped everytime.
    At least I'm usually medicated most of the time and don't feel the pain. :roll::roll:

    You must not "fish" (as wrigley put it so well) for enemies as much as I do. :p

    The comma rose in BF2142 was perfect and it only worked well as an addition to the game by having no delay in popping up. In BF3 it's currently broken and I only use it to move orders and say thanks. I guess I'd rather have the problem of occasionally not being able to mover orders instead of always moving them and never leading a squad.
