How To Be A Good Squad Leader.....and squad member.

Post#1 » Tue Nov 19, 2019 4:19 pm

Just had about 10 low level members join our squad within 10-15 minutes.
Seems bogus and fake.??

Any ideas??

Sounds like your squad got auto filled?
Or maybe you’re on the featured list?

Check out our YouTube channel with Almost 1,500 no outpost replays being shared. Quite possibly the largest collection of commander replays out there.

The devs did something. Even squads below the old threshold seem to have been filled by the autofill function. I removed 2 players and the squad got filled up in minutes. All low level 2's through 4's in general, so most might not help right out of the gate. GAT and mkenobi's squads filled up yesterday too, so it's widespread. The new players have requested troops, so they are real.

We are always looking for active players. We have a squad of 20+ members, and we war at least once a week. We have maxed out our Perks. We like helping new players, so all players are welcome!

Same here. Deleted around 10 or so only to be filled back up again..

Not sure what to do as we wanna finally get a squad to go to war.
Don’t wanna waste my time filtering through players and sorting this out though.

each time we've opened the door, we've been flooded with crapo low level junk accounts.

I can't tell if they're just robo generated "stuff" to "fill" your squad, or if they're just people in third world countries farming accounts to try to level them up to sell them.

Either way, they don't help in donations, they don't interact with the other members, and they are worthless in war.

So ... lock the door and kill the younglings.

EDIT: yes, I never go to zero medals, for this precise reason.

DarthChoder - Auto Fill is a feature that was introduced back in June 2016.

When you have your Squad set to 0 Medals Required and Open to All and you have 20 or More Members but not 30 you will see Players automatically placed in your Squad (Auto-Fill).

:arrow: To stop it you need to set Squad to 500 (or More) Medal Count and Request Only.

Thanks. Does the auto fill function still work with people with 500+ medals?
