Players should have to deliberately choose to become the squad leader. original thread: here Squad leaders often end up being random after the old leader leaves (or logs off or whatever.) This makes them a bit useless and results in many squad leaders who don't know how to use the tools. So, I propose that you should have to specifically hit a 'become leader' button on the squad menu to become the leader of a leaderless squad, rather than having it assigned automatically. The first person to hit it is the squad leader. This would not allow you to steal leadership from someone else; it could result in silly things like people racing to become squad leader first, but either way, at least we only get squad leaders who want to be one and know how to do it. Pros: -Better squad leaders. Cons: -None. Alternatives: -Various variations to the interface etc mentioned in the thread.
