I've asked in the /ops channel a couple times and no one knows or has cared enough to answer.

Why are there 4 names highlighted in the roster for a GS match?

Just curious

They are just there to server as dividers so you can easily see how many people are on your team etc. It is 4 non-highlighted, 4 highlighted, and 4 non-highlighted in a 12 person team.

Basically they are separating each 12 pilot side into four pilot squads.

They aren't so much highlighted as just differently colored so as to differentiate one squad from the next.

Only really applies in the context of folks who are entering a battle in a group of four.

The highlighted folks in the main list are the 3 other players in your squadron. Galactic Starfighter groups people into 4 man squadrons. Secondary fact, if you look at your minimap/map you will see the 3 other members of your squadron highlighted there as well!

Get out there and coordinate!

Is it possible to rearrange squadrons before a match starts? That way if a guild or other pre-made wants to truly work in dedicated teams, they could do so.

This would be a nice QOL improvement.

Does the order from top to bottom mean anything? As in rank or anything?

I seem to be placed higher on the list immediately following a match which I did really well on. Could be coincidence too, just wondering if anyone knows.

I'm assuming that when people queue as a group of 4 that they enter as a squadron? That seems to be point of this. So guild and pre-made groups can easily arrange their squadrons before they queue.

then what is the point of queuing up for group battle with 4 guildies if GS is not going to put us all in a squadron together?

also what do the 3 highlighted names on the OTHER side mean...they are not in my squadron?

Er, what? It's green-bar paper: dark, light, dark. But yes, the people in your "shade" are your squadmates.

Order seems to be alphabetical unless you group queue, then the members of the group are put into the same squad.

Audiva - Cogohi - Malkerson - Mysalia - OIejandro - Roxiani - Szachi
Aldriovok - Jubelee - Korduun - Mikkiani - Ojain - Oromunroe - Ryliani
