you can only spawn on your squad or at the base, your choice.
you can leave a squad in the start menu, you can also form a squad and invite players to the squad.
there are private and public rooms.... we should have started a private room with all of the people we had, but it was a normal public room, i think for most of the night there were a max of 2 or 3 randoms, everyone else was AVS or friends of AVS.
the night started out 12 on 4 and i just simply got annihilated, so i didnt mind owning the rest of you for about the remainder of the night, a little payback
, after that the teams were even for the most part around 10v10, at one point i looked and i saw it was 9v11, but other than that it seemed to be pretty balanced, at least as far as the number of players, i was a little worried with robert, zunderholz, sal and quasi on the other team though.
and HK, you might not have been at the top of the list all night, but i never would have known it was your first time online.
