    Since the latest patch killing the soflam is more of the problem then finding it.
    TV missiles do the trick, we will see.

    It is EA then ! That was what the server guy told me too. Horseshit !
    They better figure this shit out or I ain't playing.
    I'm gonna try and get a hold of EA again.

    CHAT !
    Vijay B:
    Thank you for contacting EA Help. My name is Vijay. How may I assist you today?
    Vijay B:
    you:
    I had an issue with not leveling up and the guy earlier said it was server side, but I have other clan mates having the same issue on different servers.
    Vijay B:
    I apologize for the inconvenience caused. I will do my best to address your concern.
    Vijay B:
    Scott, I suggest to please check it after few hours, the stats will be updated, I am forwarding this to our concern team to update.
    you:
    It went past level 46 point wise , but stays at 46 and says I need minus 2000 points to level up ? Weird !
    you:
    I have waited about 14 hrs already.
    you:
    Do they have the weekend off : )
    Vijay B:
    It not like that, What I’m going to do for you is forward the case with a high priority note to the concerned team to expedite the process. We can’t negate the disappointment caused and know the time that you have waited for and are being asked to wait for is inexcusable.
    you:
    Thanks Brother ! I'll let my clannies know !

    just place it and leave it. it passively locks so you get random points all the time.

    This must be the case in Normal game mode. I always play HC and they are easier to destroy (along with all other equipment) after the patch.

    Instant blaze... of glory. DICE said bad luck. I'd quote Dr John:

    I been in the right place
    But it must have been the wrong time
    I'd of said the right thing
    But I must have used the wrong line
    I been in the right trip
    But I must have used the wrong car

    My head was in a bad place
    And I'm wondering what it's good for

    This is how I run support. I don't really go for kills as I tend to find the biggest cluster of enemies and fire into them. I concentrate on suppression and cover fight while Holiday handles focused fire and flanking. This could be to take a flag or corner, but works best as defending choke points. I don't do a lot of killing as support, but I get a lot of points fairly easy.

    I die because I am often not moving in a high enemy fire area, but the suppression upgrade and high volume of bullets act as a shield for me and others. I keep friendlies armed to the teeth by giving ammo constantly before the ask for it and staying close to the Assault and Recon guys, not the Snipers.

    I know the whole play support as "support" seems cliche and obvious, but you would be amazed at how fee people do this. The LMGs suck at close range, suck at shooting while moving, suck at hip fire, but are absolutely devastating on a bi-pod and in controlled, aimed, bursts.

    This is a good role for your squad leader as he stays just shy of frontline fire. Let your squad do the work while you keep the mid to long range guys down (either dead or too scared to shoot back). Move up when they have the situation under control and the flag is neutral or move back if they lose the advantage so they can respawn and adjust tactics.

    Heh TLM I got killed by admin for spawn killing from a tank on that Seine server we were on an hour ago. In my defense, not something I usually condone but they were firing at me too and I got drunk on the carnage! I didn't notice his warning in chat, either. 22-4 at the end, lol.

    Though when we have all Caps like that what am I really supposed to do? How is killing them right after they leave spawn any "better"? They still don't have any stronger chance at fighting back if not worse.

    I got killed by him as well for the same reason. But you are right, they were not really making an attempt to leave their base, so why wait for them to grow a pair. My boy Holiday didn't notice his warnings either and I had to tell him to stop when the admin killed me.

    All the rounds I played were completely one sided except for that one lose on Metro due to lack of aggression and people thinking it was over before it was over.

    I've been playing again recently and having a lot of fun;

    I play at 1600*900 on a 5870 and this used to be a chore but these days 60fps smoothness is the norm!

    Memory upgrade helped but also this driver for ATI which I think is worth trying for 5/6 series owners

    http://benchmark3d.com/amd-catalyst-modding-guide-and-performance-test/2

    I hope this works as well for others as it did for me and doesn't cause any problems. These are MODDED drivers and even the drivers are beta so .. lol!
