  1. In late 2002 a buddy showed me this game , and I was floored by what I saw .  It was the sole reason for my venture in to the world of computers .  I lone wolfed under many trials , with multiple names , until 2005 , when I was recruited in to the 22nd Mechanized Infantry Regiment .  My handle then was Reichfur .  Never , ever , in my life , have I experienced such camaraderie , loyalty , and cohesion in a group , as I did with the 22nd .   We were a large squad and our XO was a wizard at making missions .  There were times when there were at least 30 of us on a mission , inf , arty , armor , and air .  For a while there , they and this game , were what I lived for .  I loved each and every one of them as brothers .

    I have returned to the game after a 5 year , or more , break .  I was once 22nd Mech , and was spoiled at having been included in the squad .  The huge resupply runs , FB busting , and the holding of our beloved Aarsch - Deist FB , and some of the finest people I've ever known , was more than I could have ever expected from a video game / simulation .  Since I signed back up ( free play , so far ) I don't think I've seen more than 3 squad tags in one place at a time .  I have been recruited in to a squad , and did as was mentioned above  " S! , who is oic and what are orders ? "  Never once got a reply on squad channel .  Disappointing , I would have hoped that the squads would have all grown .  I am saddened that the 22nd is no longer together ...

    So yes , squads are important if this game is to be at it's best .  I appreciate being able to comment here .
