How do I join a Squad?


     The first way is to get recruited. As long as you are not in a squad, you show up in a list of available recruits. If a Captain is convinced, they can add you to their squad manually.
 
    The second way is to use Squad Bot. Squad Bot is our automated squad building service. When activated, it will search for a suitable squad and add you to their ranks. If you don't like squad, you can leave and give it another try.

What is a Squad Black List?


     Every member that has left or been removed from a squad has a Squad Black List. Everytime you leave or are removed from a squad, that squad is added to your blacklist. This keeps Squad Machine from placing back in a squad that didn't work out for you already.
 

 

Can I wipe my Black List?


     Yes but, it is not common. The Squad Black List keeps the automated squad making working correctly but, it also keeps members out of squads where Captains have removed them. For this reason, we will investigate the issue and only clear a Black List when certain criteria are met.
