Choosing squad type before creating a new squad ingame

Munnharpe 1 month ago • updated by Trench Rat (Trench Rat) 3 weeks ago 7

When creating a new squad in game, you get a random squad type. If this wasn't the one you wanted by coincidence, you have to wait for quite a bit for the "Change squad type" button to appear in the "Squad" menu, then select your preferred type and then respawn. This is often horribly frustrating, because you risk that other players immediately join your squad and vote against the squad type you had in mind when you created the squad in the first place. Also because it takes many seconds to wait for the "Change squad type" button to appear, and respawning. What I suggest is that when you click "New squad" you get to pick the type you want before the squad gets created, eliminating the problem.

We're only left with a potential problem then, that is if you make your squad and somebody immediately joins and steals the soldier class you wanted. That could probably be solved as well, but it's not that important.

In the New UI, the Create Squad Menu does come up when you want to add a squad or create a new squad on the other team.


You can try it out yourself in an empty Maneuver match. (Without bots)

Devs said something like it'll be fixed with the new UI, but I havent seen this feature in Tannenberg

They're always talking about the "new UI", what does that mean? That they are working on a complete reworking that will be implemented all of a sudden in a long time? 

in Tannenberg there is a brand new user interface (very similar to Battlefield series one). steam://openurl/https://steamcommunity.com/games/242860/announcements/detail/1726462797161760199

I need to test it myself to certain, but if I'm not mistaken the menu that's at the 1:53 timestamp in this New UI Overview Video will pop up when you create a new squad.


It comes up anyway, when you want to switch types or change the name of your squad in Tannenberg. (By clicking on the Squad Emblem in the Squad Menu or Create Squad Lobby, and when you create a squad on the main menu.)

P.S. The Devs are looking for more feedback on the New UI, but it is on the roadmap for this quarter or worst case, sometime during the first quarter of 2019. 


If people give more feedback, the easier (faster?) it will be to polish it for Verdun.

Thanks for your input, where can I go to give feedback to the new UI?
