Please don't allow for the option of locked squads. Played today and all these locked squads. Dumb. Limits who you can spawn off of.

How are we to work as a team when there can be a number of "little teams"?

I play in locked squads because of all the lone wolfing. One squad member at A. One at E on a rooftop doing nothing. I like to be able to spawn on my friends that are actually trying to win and help them.

I dont want some smurf squad hopping to my spawn beacon, sitting there blasting away with an lmg at the birds flying around.
Nope if im squad leader and especially if im playing with squadmates squad gets locked with a quickness.

Sorry.

Some people want only certain people in their squad. I don't see what's wrong with it.

I disagree VBall, I think locked squads are stupid. Keep them open and kick the Randy if they suck.

I will add that a locked squad should always be the players choice. It gets annoying.when I am playing and because someone joins on me via battlelog I get pulled out of my squad and the new one gets locked up.

There is an option to prevent this.

Understood but some people don't want randoms. I don't see the issue, is it rude...could be, but do you let total strangers come and sit with you at the restaurant?

I don't play battlefield to fill my stomach.

as long as we can ban particular players from our squid, i'm fine with removing the lock

randies just pop right back in instantly

You know you'll be in a world of pain when you join a rush match, 4 of 5 squads are locked with 2 guys only inside while the only remaining open squad has a lone sniper in it.

People are too stupid or dont care that this mostly costs them a win. Also harder/no access to squad perks. Not that most of the baddies even know about them.

Just as funny as the level 12 random gunner spawning in my tank spamming the 'get out!' Message.

In the

Options > Gameplay > Squad With Joining Friend > No


Its stupidly set Yes as default.


Locking the squad is great. No one wants to play with a lone wolf sniper nor someone with an unsilence gun with an itchy trigger finger when the squad are all Ninjas on the flank.
This signature is beneath my penmanship.

Sometimes, when I sit at the bar.

Omg, thank you.

So if I set it at 'no' then they just join the existing squad?

Yeah! It is really annoying in rush when you have no squad. I just leave the game then.

Sometimes, that's why I get a table instead.
