Default Terrible squad members.

I was playing a game today, I was the Squad leader and I had a full squad. Usually that's good, but my entire squad was filled with bad-mouthed smart a$$es who were too lazy to even acknowledge my commands.First, I asked certain people to get certain kits (assigned Medic and such), and they did not do that. They would rather complain about why the sniper kit is unavailable. I would give commands, and not only would they not follow the command, they wouldn't even acknowledge it. It was literally,"We're moving to defend, here!"..............[silence]. The only time they did speak is when they had something negative to say, like,"Sh!t, they are f*cking hacks!" Then they would gripe and whine about how much our team sucks, when they are not doing anything to help. We ended up losing the match because they wouldn't listen to my commands (our task was probably one the more important ones).

How do I deal with a squad like this? let's say I have to stay with them, what do I do?

Going to have to disagree portable
I love playing project reality because I know when I log on, Everyones professional, And everyones friendly, When stuff like this happens, It destroys the game, Were taking this blokes word for it, And I believe him, I've been in my fair share of terrible squads, There are no bad squad leaders, Because a Squad Leader knows what he's doing when he clicks 'Create'

With crap like that mate
Tell em to piss off, Plain and simple, Don't let idiots who don't understand and refuse to understand the complexity of PR to ruin the game

I'd say 'that only applies to real life' but then my fit healthy muscular 20 year old cousin was denied entry into the Canadian forces... something to do with his psych profile I think.

Point is, squad members can in fact be bad. Like when last night I was trying to just take a minute to teach some people what to do, or I should say how I wanted them to do it and a guy joined who refused to say ANYTHING to me. I kicked him and he rejoins saying 'stop kicking me you jerk'. I try to tell him he can stay if he just stays with the group, still no answer. Kick again, keeps coming back this time saying that he's complaining to admin and sending my name and a screen etc etc.

Then I crashed to desktop and apparently people in mumble said my entire squad disappeared... just me... maybe he was hacking... I dunno.

Point is... this guy was a douche! I couldn't even kick him apparently. I was as reasonable as was necessary and then some.

Then there was the other guy in the squad at that time who didn't speak english... I thought. He wouldn't answer me in either chat or voip, and would just immediately run to any marker I put down regardless of what we were doing. Later I saw him typing in chat in perfect english....

It is possible to have crap squad members imho. But many can be turned to be good.

Incorrect in this game

some people just can't follow simple instuctions, "get down" "hold fire" "give ammo to the at" or whatever.

e.g. I was on Kufrah and I told my squad to take cover in the buildings to hide from an enemy APC, I said I was gonna climb up on a pipe to give the location of the APC to teh commander.

I climb up, then I look behind me.

MY ENTIRE SQUAD WAS ON THE PIPE BEHIND ME.

I repeated my simple instructions. They sat there gawping at me.

after about 20mins of these repeated incidences, and me getting very annoyed at 2 of the squad members who clearly wanted to lead the squad, while being lonewolves I decided the round was a bust, said goodbye and jumped ship.

I dont know why people are so patient with others in the pubs, I kick without hesitation. If the whole squad is mouthing off and disregarding orders then I guess your just gonna have to kick them all out. Only focus and tolerate on the teamplayers and let the rest join the crappy squad.

-A quality that many people lack is an awareness of their surroundings and the current situation. Today I was SL'ing on Korengal and my squad would constantly bunch up around markers as if they were relying on each others' body heat to survive, then a single insurgent took out four of my guys because they were standing around like idiots doing whatever, and when they respawned they apparently thought it wise to not follow the route we just took back to my position but instead go spelunking. While trying to regroup my squad I had my Specialist throw down a grapple so that the last guy could get to our position and informing him of this(and the rest of the squad by doing so) and when that grapple was thrown they all just ran at the grapple and started descending the rope. In the end I just kicked them all and disbanded the squad, I'm not going to waste my time herding these people(PiratHenk was the only competent SM, in case he reads this).

Make Norway OPFOR! NAO!

^LOL

Unfortunately, everyone already beat me to it. Just give them about 30 seconds to acknowledge you, get their sh!t right, or boot them out. Easy-peasy.
