Looking for Host Squads

Recommended Posts


Why was the Host Squad Program created?

The Host Squad Program was created to increase new player direction upon their first log-in whilst increasing squad size, effectively growing the game as a whole. Host Squad trainers are provided with training tools that make their jobs easier when contacting new players upon their first log-in.

Tools Given

(.GRAB ) - This tool locks you and the new player into conversation. Anything said in any channel will only be broadcast to eachother.

(.TR ) - You will be given access to a new channel. Like .HC channel, anything you say on the .TR channel will be seen only by other active trainers.

(.TR list) - Your name will be shown on the .TR list, meaning you can send/receive PMs to players on both sides, allowing you to contact Host Squads on the other side for 'TRADE-A-NOOB' purposes.

1. is playing Axis but is in my Allied Squad. (
After 2-3 days of playing that side
, decided he wants to mainly play that side)

2. *Kick player*

3. The other Host Squad will then get in touch with that player.

What is the objective?

The objective of the Host Squad Program is very simple, to teach new players how to use a text channel and to DIRECT them to their learning resources resources.

Resource 1:
The 'HELP' channel.

Resource 2:
Their New Player Guide.

New Player Process

  1. New player creates their account
  2. New player receives a welcome/activatio letter in their email and in that email is a guide for new players
  3. New player activates account and is placed in the current Host Squad before they log into game
  4. New player logs into game and is contacted & directed by the Host Squad

Host Squad Process

The Host Squad's job is to direct the new player to his learning resources. No advanced training required, just the basics of the basics! Community Trainers / Players in the help channel as well as their new-player-guide will do the rest of the work.

  1. New player is added to squad, logs into game
  2. Squad trainer .grab's the new player and uses the script below to contact that player
    • <.GRAB>
    • -Salute-
    • You are temporarily locked into conversation with me, this means that anything that you type into the chatbox will be sent only to myself.
      During this time, you may personally ask me any questions that you may have about the game.
    • (WAIT 30 SECONDS)
    • If you have any questions after I release you, they can be directed to (using the function keys) channels [F4-SQUAD] or [F6-HELP] (Default channels - use these numbers)
    • You may also refer to the guide that was sent to the email address that you used when you first created your account.
    • Above all, have fun, and happy hunting! (Variable)

    And that's it... using the 'ARROW UP' key allows you to repeat anything you type into the chat box without retyping it. (Pretty easy, RIGHT?)

    Rotation Schedules (Negotiable)

    Large Squads: MONDAY -> FRIDAY

    Small Squads: SATURDAY & SUNDAY

It's a good practice... in theory. In reality no one has the time to train the guys and damn near most of the new recruits do not respond to multiple attempts to contact them. Since we've got the training server up can we start looking at doing training exercises? I'm more than willing to volunteer a few hours a week.

As an HC officer, being part of the squad program was an extremely strenuous time. The responsibilities of HC can occasionally be quite demanding, but when coupled with repeating yourself 12 times a day just to see 1 of 12 actually stick around.... it was just too much.

Which sucks, because I really feel like I can be a good trainer. But I can't abandon my buddies in AHC either.

We are always looking for new squads to join this team of Host Squad!

This is very important in getting new players up to speed on game play.

Seems like a good idea, I can't wait to get in game and check out this function. One issues I seems to have, is when I click on a squads link in the recruiting form, its always broken.
