Definitely the type of guys I hate...
You have to worry about them constantly raining death from above and then when you start to focus on them the ground troops come mop you up while you're distracted. I really need to unlock the 3rd launcher for the assault class.

And while we're on the topic, I'm pretty miffed about how bad they nerfed spotting. It might have been a little too easy in the demo & beta, but I think they went overboard with the nerf. Seems like half the time it's not even worth it to spot, like you're jamming the select button when you could be shooting, and before you know it, they're not spotted & they're not dead. Maybe I just suck or something, but I liked it better before.
Distance from the object as well as latency and how close they are to the center of your reticle i think are the biggest factors; that and spotting seems to have an internal cooldown so youcan;'t spam it, and the cooldown occurs whether you successfully spotted something or not.

Speaking of which, you can use spotting for everything. If you spot a base to attack, and your team destroys the base, you get points for that. You will hear people shouting things out. Like if i 'spot' my med packs, my dude will yell out 'medpack here' or some such rant. Need ammo? spot a friendly assault class and your guy will yell out that he needs ammo. So it's not just to tag enemies.

Re: Battlefield 2: Bad Company and Battlefield 1943 announced

I would like to see them implement a rule that one nationality cannot operate the other's equipment.

The games become cheesier to me when people are stealing eachother's rides.

And YES I do it too. Because it's fair game, but if they removed that I would be happy.

Re: Battlefield 2: Bad Company and Battlefield 1943 announced

or you can spot vehicles if you need a ride etc. Seems like a lot of people don't spot. I do it constantly. I guess sometimes and find someone.

Just had 16,000 points in one game. Close to unlocking UMP45 for Engineer and just unlocked the STG for Assault. I destroyed 4 tanks last game with anti tank mines. I love those things.

How are you guys scoring that many points? 16,000? 30,000? This guy on GAF posted a screenshot where he had like 74,000! I mean WTH? Is it just that the game goes for an obscene amount of time? I check the scoreboard after every match and I've yet to see anyone score more than 6,000; I've finished in 1st place (both teams) with like 2400. Geeze, 16,000?

Because they are unlocking special ribbons, some are one time only that are worth a lot of points most likely.

Re: Battlefield 2: Bad Company and Battlefield 1943 announced

yeah, I had one that was 10,000 for getting 5 gold stars. I think the gold stars are like 5,000 each.
