    For christ sake, Kharg Island rush is so heavily stacked against the Russians.
    They only get a tank and a Frogfoot. The tank you lose after the second point.
    Yet the US gets an AMTRAC, a LAV, a Tank (from the 2nd base onwards), a viper, Centurion AA and an a10.
    Notice how they US dont lose any of the armour.
    And now thanks to ECM being the middle finger to all AA all of the time(regardless if you've got a series of squads locking on to the damn thing) , you cant even take out the air support because the A10 and the AA will fuck up your Frogfoot.

    You just get your ass handed to you and you lose within 10 minutes.

    Agreed, it'd be nice if Dice would spice things up and throw in and extra jet and a chopper for the RU. We would get some serious fights for air superiority.

    It's sad because every U.S. team I've ever been on, save one or maybe two, has never made it past the first or second set of MCOMs.

    Really?
    I haven't been in a game where the US doesn't obliterate everything on Kharg.

    Yes.

    Also, Jihad jeeps are so damn fun.

    I like the anti tank mine variety where you jump on top and lay the mines on the bonnet, and then ram an Enemy tank so hard it sets off the mine.

    You die, but it is so damn worth it.

    If there's anyone here who plays the PS3 version in the West US region, please add me! I find that playing alone is a lot less fun than playing with friends. My PSNID is Toasterslave

    I'll give you mad resupply points since I'm almost always out of ammo.

    Just play whatever class is suited to whatever situation you're in, it's pointless to stick to one class for no reason. If you find yourself needing to take out vehicles a lot, stick with engy. Otherwise alter it to the situation (i.e if you're playing TDM, assault is probably a wiser choice).

    I had 700-800 SPM before there were dedicated servers, so it wasn't really possible to boost since all the servers I was playing was rotating all the time.

    As for the M26, guilty as charged.

    According to weps,awards and fav class - sir, you typical CoD player.
    Boosted SPM, lvl50 in less than 50 hours and really poor number of teamplay-related awards let us know your playstyle.
    P.S.: no offense, just an opinion.

    None taken, I can see why you'd assume I'm just another CoD player. But in all honesty, I prioritize revivals rather than kills, I don't see how 368 revive ribbons is a poor number, unless you're counting the other teamplay ribbons as well, in which case yeah, opinion justified.

    I've stopped using the M416 just before the patch, since the AN94 allows me to annoy Recon players now.

    Honest to god, the SPM is not boosted. 800 is really silly, I admit, and I imagine it's because of the appearance of high-ticket servers recently, but before that it was a consistent 700.

    The new patch really changed the game. I just played on the "69th Penetration Force' server" Managed to kill three enemies with one burst of my dingy as fuck F-35. The enemy jet spiraled out of control and hit a chopper.

    Also the new "big servers" are nuts. Nothing like 1700 rate Metro. The option to turn off AA on PS3 really makes the game easier to play. It's not so sluggish.

    I don't really know what to say, your time played is 5x mine so compared to you my numbers look minuscule, but according to your rewards, I'd have to say you're a really good Battlefield player. You're way more of a team player than I am because you switch classes and your KD ratio is also pretty well-maintained considering that you've been playing for 267 hours.

    I stick with Engy because I adore carbines, something that's probably stemmed from BC2 with the carbines in that being absolutely gorgeous to use. And the M4.. so perfect.
    Rocket launchers are a bonus for terrain destruction and easy kills of prone and distant enemies for when the recoil on my weapon doesn't allow for a good series of shots, plus it's a good kick to the teeth of any humvees or tanks trying to get through.
    I just have a base obsession over Engineer classes in games, really. They're always the most fun, even if my limited use of a dropped Support kit was fun as hell. I think it was an M240 with extended mag and a 3.4/4x scope and bipod slapped onto it. Got about 5-6 kills in a couple moments plus a load of points for resupplies, was fairly cool.

    I don't get why people are so temperamental about all this stuff. I see people disregard the Bad Companies, but I thought those were great games, introducing many new features, and just being fun to play. Who cares if they had a subtitle, they were good games.

    People also complain about metro like none other, and sure its not a perfect map, but I can still have a lot of fun with it. Sure it is just a big choke point, but to me, it makes that push pretty satisfying. I always try and get creative, so me and my friend will use smokes to get the team up those stairs, or actually worry about team mechanics like revives and resupplies. As long as you are playing to benefit your team in the best way possible, it is usually at least somewhat enjoyable.

    And SQDM is the same way. Whenever I play it, I play with 3 of my other friends, and we actually keep the team mechanics going the whole time, and it is a lot of fun. We become dependent on each other, and its usually effective enough to at least keep the game competitive, if not scoring a win.

    Just my thoughts.
    Squad DM is awesome with no more than 16-20 people on the server playing and lower win conditions (i.e. 25 instead of 100). Especially on a map like Karkand where it's all CQ stuff but big enough for tactics and stealth to come into play.

    Ofc it doesn't help that the engiee is literally the best class in the game, seeing as Carbines are really good, rocket launchers are really good and can take out vehicles (which tend to be good) and they can repair vehciles, which are really good. Everything about them is really good, it's no wonder there's not much incentive to try other classes unless you fancy using C4, or sniping.

    No magic, just take care of the team.
    Teamplay gives you much more fun, but you still can be MVP.
    Thats the main idea of Battlefield.

    I really didn't like playing engineer at all because I couldn't stand carbines. Mainly because I had already been spoiled by playing with assault rifles beforehand so when I picked up a carbine I felt like a weakling.

    I more prefer medium range engagements using the l85 on assault or sks being an "aggressive" recon.

    I would suggest that right when you take off, heard straight up and fly just below the stall ceiling. On some maps it could be 900 or 700, somewhere between those numbers. Staying near the stall ceiling will get you away from any AA opposition. Plus the enemy jets won't even notice you up there unless they have air radar or something. So when your up there just tilt your jet just enough for you to be able to move your head and look towards the ground. When your looking at the ground just mash the spot key till you pick up targets, plus being high up in the air lets you swoop down on unsuspecting enemy jets.

    I honestly didn't think AA was in a console's best interest seeing as how it murders framerates on even moderately powerful PCs.

    They're money hungry fuckers because they allow you to optionally bypass the time you would've spent just unlocking the weapons?
