Not 100% sure, but I noted the following:
When I was playing TDM (in squads) i noted I was getting 110pts/kill. Maybe it is a little XP boost?
I played a Squads match this morning and it showed that I had 2 hours of 2xp available. I presume that came from our clan reaching level 6 but it's nice to know that the 2xp bonus gets applied to Squads as well as Multiplayer because I've played way more than 2 hours of Multiplayer after the 2xp was awarded. So in effect you get 4 hours worth of 2xp play time if you play both modes. Now having said that, I have to wonder if it's complete bunk because I was only getting 50xp per kill in KC which is normal xp. So perhaps the countdown clock was just glitched and I didn't really have 2xp on? That's something that I'll have to look further into.
My understanding is that the bonus XP you get in squads does not carry over to MP (not sure though)
As well, the squads bonus XP is not 2XP. It seems to be a 10% boost (as seen in another thread I found)
Oh then that's something else entirely. I didn't know about a bonus XP but then again I only this morning figured out where I needed to go to setup my Squad so that it could actually get challenged. So my Squads knowledge is rather limited.
Mine as well...
What I am not sure is: Do the squad members level when you are challenged. I had a character close to leveling and he never level even though I was challenged 4 times (and won one...lol)
I wonder if they either do not level at all, or only when you win?
They are supposed to level when you are challenged depending on how well they played. I don't know if it's a slower paced leveling or what since my Squad has yet to actually get challenged. However, I have noticed that when I'm challenging someone else's Squad that it doesn't seem like the other squad members on my team are leveling up. They may be leveling but if they are then it's at a really slow pace. The character that I'm controlling though seems to level up normally.
I will challenge you, and beat you into the ground!!!
I have lost some games even though all my squad members are at least level 2 (two are mid level teens and one is 21)... and I got beat by a squad of all level 1 characters, with the main one being leveled higher.
Any time my friend. Any time. I wouldn't even hazard a guess at how well my Squad would do up against a real person. So far they tend to handle the BOTs pretty well but we have lost some matches. Mostly because of their fearless leader bringing up the rear but I'm getting better. I should warn you though that my Squad is mostly between lvl 3 and lvl 7 but my main guy just prestiged last night. He's pretty stacked and I've taken some time along the way to buy a few things for my other squad members even though I haven't played with them much yet.
So where do you go to set up your squads? Do you really have to spend squad points for each guy to arm them or did i glance at it wrong?
