I'm really looking forward to squads not so much the survival parts but the rest is gonna be alot of fun i think and will make a nice distraction from mp . Really like the idea of pitting my squad against others and yes i intend to make some really wild squads up for the s&g
I especially like the the fact i can join up with a friend and just play without having to deal with a team of greenies (assuming the squad ai is good mind)
I think its got a lot of potential and can really see people making squads so others can play against them which will be great for youtubers/community sites ect
Personally I'm not terribly excited about sqauds. It's not that it sounds bad or anything, it just seems like the next evolution of combat training. The only difference being it's split up into several modes now and also you can have your AI squads play against other players AI squads. I don't get the hype behind squads much at all. It's a nice feature for those that don't want to play MP online or aren't able to play MP online though. I just don't see it being able to properly replicate the experience you get playing against other players.
Plus it's IW, I really, really don't think they have the programming chops to make the AI bots as complex as they are teasing. Time will tell though. Now I just want some official Extinction info or gameplay and I'll be content until release.
