    Dunno how it was made possible, but I'll describe to the best of detail.

    I was commander, and then after a long game I started being chased (end game chase), I asked if any squad had enough points for a squad rev and asked everyone to join that squad. I got control of the squad while being inside of the CV driving away from the enemy, then as I was the squad leader, I quickly got out, squad revived, but the number of squad points did not decrease. At first I thought we somehow managed to gain 6 squad points in such a short period, but then I tried again, and again, and I realized that the number of squad points did not deduct.

    So short form.

    1) I was com
    2) Became squad lead while still in com
    3) Squad revived the team and points weren't deducted.

    I'm quite sure it's not "unlimited" squad points, it's just a bug that show inaccurate number of squad points. I've experienced it happen to both me and other people before.

    We had this issue on Urbanchaos (hence us winning a losing game). Toward the end we were losing, but Alpha's squad revive cost nothing, and we could spam it endlessly.

    I noticed that several squad revives weren't costing any squad points on unbanchaos.

    Sonecha is correct.

    Hmm, I think Sonecha is indeed right.

    Revvies cost 6 points, and I think I only revived them 4 times.

    i had 31-32 squad points and kept spamming squad revive
    i remembered that i used 'instant heal' which actually counted against me leaving me with 28 squad points left, after that, i stuck with spamming revives

    (idk how much instant heal costs)

    Maybe it's only revvi that does this?

    I think so. I just spammed over 100 squad revives on urbanchaos without my squad points dropping. However, squad heal did use points so its something exclusive to squad revive.

    There seems to be a corelation between infinite revives and urbanchaos.

    I played yesterday and got the bug that I spoke of again. It told me that I had squad points, which I used, and they didn't drop. However, after a while I got "You cannot use this skill/power now" or something.

    Although, I have to agree that 100's of squad revives sounds a bit odd, unless someone is exaggerating a bit.

    They instituted a squad skill cooldown which gives the "You cannot use this skill/power now" if you try to use them too fast.

    No exaggeration. I squad revived about every 10-15s for about a half hour of urbanchaos. Once I found out that squad revives didn't cost squad points, I did so immediately when someone died.

    Quite frankly, this is a game-breaking bug. Free squad revives means I can revive my squad without using a ticket and faster than the respawn timer.

    Well, it's not the same thing with revive as artillery. And I had it for quite some time untill someone in my squad told me I had 2 points.

    And well, I don't know what to think about your none-exaggeration untill I witness it myself.

    :) I didn't believe it myself until I was able to abuse it so much on urbanchaos. I'd say go squad leader on every map you can and try squad reviving. I'm sure you'll encounter the bug sooner rather than later.

    Exploiting bugs is bad!

    ...although I must admit this one is tempting...

    Ive seen this, but i only did it once and got a free rev, then i was watching the points cause i noticed it was free, and the # of points went down after 30 seconds or so. it still got paid for but not right away.
