Default Squad Leader Voip open Channel for all

I think could be interesting if the comander radio could be open for rest of Squad Leaders too. So Squad leaders could implement better organized tactics to each squad. I normally trust my squad leader than the loner wolf comander, and will make better use of that channel.

Can new VOIP channels even be made???

In reality, we need 3 + new ones, the present communications system is good but limited in many different ways.
1) - above example (would be usefull, CO cant pass on all info that quickly - emergency commnet e.g T90 north of Hotel - save lives of many other players)

2) - one that every body with in 10m can hear (including enemies, vital for communication with all other player in close combat e.g guy beihnd wall, ammo please ext.)

3) - In vehicle system: - passenger to crew, - crew to crew (absolutely vital for vehicle infantry co-op AND due to small squad sizes even more imprative)

4) - Squad leader to squad leader

BUT like always the good people at PR will come along and kindly spell out the word HARD - F*****g CODED!!!!!!!

hmm, might be a bonus ingame, but i remember the way the british army radio systems worked in the early 1990's and we could only speak to our commander who had a radio operator with him at all times. it avoids confusion and bickering over orders. that's not to say you do'n't use initiative to change orders, but squad leaders shouldn't be making battle plans really.

The most effective thing to happen ingame is for SL's to contact commanders at each change of direction, method of attack, etc, then commander to move other squads around the constantly changeing battlefield conditions.

This also requires squads to immediately follow orders and i don't see that happening most of thetime.people refuse to disengage from the enemy, or don't inform commander of what is happening in their vicinity.

we need to promote voip usage and this will fill in the holes better. also promote the chain of command so people obey the commanders. at the moment a squad leader can kick members of his squad, but a commander cant kick squad leaders who don't conform to the battleplans he gives out. if you get a bad commander then an entire team is going to get upset obviously if their games are ruined over and over again.

I think it can be done, but we cant make any new 1s, we have to us existing ones, so really u could probably have the squadleader to squad and a all chanel where the comander who will show up in yellow as now and otehr squad leaders in maybe diferent colors or all as greens but with numbver, but thsi will sacrifice the squad leader to comander only option. at least i think so from what i heard befor.

I agree on having squad leaders and commanders in a leaders' channel, more than a one-way to the boss. I'd also love to see a local communication channel, but don't think it could be done.
