Squads: I was thinking that squads might be more affective if it was a player option as well as commander suggestible.
For example you might allow marines to form their own squads that would then allow them to communicate with each other more directly while allowing the commander to select them for tasks.
The commander would also be allowed to select his own squads to which players could then choose to join or deny the request. Those in squads could have some added benefit which will encourage the use of squads.
It might also be interesting have function based squads like Base Builders, Scouts, Assault, etcâ€¦ it might require giving special abilities to each of the respective squads but Iâ€™m not sure how effective it would be.
Camera Views: It would be cool if in a squad mode you could open up a camera view (think small box not full screen) from one of your other squad members so that you could see their location/assist. The squad member being watched could have an indicator showing who is currently connected to his camera.
