Yes squads is fun. I like the fact you can still rank up without the worry of being cheated.
I play squads when I first unlock a new soldier to get him up to par with weapons/perks. I also revert to squads when the hackers are out in droves. I'd play squads more if it wasn't for the XP handicap and inability to unlock operations/cammo.
Someday I hope to play squad v. squad but I haven't found someone with 6 outfitted soldiers yet. I also wanted to try clan wars until I found out how poor the app is.
Very sad state of affairs that you have to play a different game mode because of hackers.
yes I have done squads and the funny part is you get cheating their too its like you cannot escape them
