Hello BigD Community! (Read this pleassssssssse :cool:) Oh and don't be stingy took me 1 hour so reply goddamit!

V8 is fun eh? Still has its issues though as does any alpha game, but man that performance increase is huge and D-licious!

So what are we doing as a community and what happens next? Well first, we will start to have weekly updates for you, either via forum or newsletter format. This will be as often as we can. Remembering we are a small senior team and do this as a hobby and a passion, so if we make mistakes or you feel we are missing something let us know, but don't beat us down! we have feelings :rolleyes:

First of all, I can understand some players frustrations when it comes to slots (not being able to get on one of our servers) and map changes (playing the same faction or map a couple times in a row) etc, just know that we (those "senior" guys again) do our gosh-dangdest to bring the best overall experience possible.

We have solutions for these things and are working to improve on them everyday! For example we have launched the Community only AAS to ensure all players who have their steam account linked with their forum account can enjoy the benefits of playing on...

Situation: Afghani Taliban have been making explosives and attacking US personal and innocent civilians in the region. After a hospital in the nearby city gets bombed, US intelligence has decided to grant permission for a small strike team to recon then destroy the Taliban's explosive supplies.


US Mission: Your team has been tasked with conducting a Search and Destroy operation in the Logar Valley.

Alpha Version 8
Nov 1, 2016
The hype train has arrived! A monthly recap and Version 8 in one go!

[​IMG]

Alpha Version 8 is now released. After hitting one of Squad's biggest milestones with the introduction of vehicles in Alpha Version 7, we could finally focus on doing an optimization pass on the core systems now that all the underlying wires are connected. This was a team wide effort, with a lot of micro-optimizations quickly building up to a level of performance that the team is proud to present to the players.
That is not the whole story though! We added a few treats to add more spice to the current gameplay and quite a few quality of life improvements alongside the main focus which was optimization.
As more content and features are added, we're able to better pace the game to where we eventually want to go. These changes have to be implemented over time so the player base has a chance to adjust and adapt. This has been the trend for for the entire life cycle of Squad, and this patch is no different. We are steadily slowing things down so...

WE ARE INVITING ALL INTERESTED SEASONED BIGD SQUAD PLAYERS TO APPLY FOR ADMIN

Keen as?

With the most anticipated SQUAD update just released! (psssst V8 is here pass it on), we are looking to grow our Squad in-game Admin Team. If you have already applied and have been waiting patiently, expect to be contacted by myself within the next few days. If not, and know/think you have"it*" then please read on!

As a BigD Squad Admin you are the face of our community. You will be trusted to enforce our server rules and take appropriate action for those Squaddies who do not adhere to them.

There will be players who will critique your every move, this means you will need to be patient and remain calm under pressure. Building rapport with our player base is a must, as respect will make your job easier.

Your influence will be crucial in molding new and existing players and guarantee our servers thrive and exceed the standards we set.

Being an admin is a BIG responsibility, and takes priority over normal game-play. We put a lot of trust into our...
Its happening, BigD Gaming has begun the migration to Discord.

Discord invite link: Discord | https://discord.me/bigdgaming

Teamspeak has been a core component of the BigD Community since the early days of 2007. It has taken all this time for a new and improving platform to overtake and enrich the community interactions that Teamspeak has in the past.

BigD Gaming Discord will be open as a community platform, anyone and everyone is welcome to join in as was the case of teamspeak. All of our Community & In-game admins will be required to be active on Discord - if you require admin assistance, especially for in-game matters, Discord will be the place to look.

What will happen to Teamspeak? Our server costs no money and will not be turned off in the short term. There are advantages of teamspeak for large scale community events and may be used for those purposes in the future. The number of channels in teamspeak will decease as the community moves to the Discord server.
