Default Calling roles?

What have you guys experienced with calling roles for squads i.e. Air Transport, or Armor, Sniper, and what not. Today, on one server I made a squad called Air Trans with another fellow but as soon as the game started the BHs were robbed from under our noses. This soon led to arguments and childishness, which I regret, so I just left the server. Do you guys honor squad roles or maybe something should be done with the mod so this is enforced much more?

I usually make one of two squads

Terror- coordinated jihad cycle attacks on warriors.
Merlin- staying in the air for long periods of time (usually at a high altitude) when someone spawns on me, i swoop down, let them out and repeat.

I don't agree that creating a squad named Armor or Air gives you the ultimate right to those assets.

Unfortunately, sometimes after making a squad called one thing you end up doing something completely different. There's always the option of disbanding the last squad and making a new one to change the name, but it creates confusion for the squad members.

Eddie, but do people respect that, and not call the snipers (as in check that you have at least one squad member in your squad who is carrying a sniper)

Also, lets change the question to: What do you think about calling roles?

no, i dont make the squad in the begining, instead i wait and see if i can get a sniper rifle, or a tank or transport helicopter,then i name the squad.

I find that its much easier that way

personaly i think that naming a squad for a particular role would only work in an organized clan / squad, or leage match. there are far too many people on public servers that would like to proform a certain role for their own enjoyment, that would be unfair to every player. "I called being a pilot first" is not a right on any server to deny any one from using a particular kit. it might work in the playground for grade 3 kids, but it will only cause problems in the pr community.

While I agree here, I also think that if you establish a squad with 6 men, that you should definitely have more right than the one guy running around with a crewman kit. But, yeah, thats only in theory...

If you get enough guys in your squad who are specialized in whatever you are, I would definitely respect your squads role and wouldnt interfere, rather I would ask for help (Air Support, Armor Support to where I was if needed)

Why dont you spawn, see what you can get then make a specialized squad?

its a hellaof allot more effective that way
