What's your playstyle chaotic? Your score per minute is outrageous. I just broke 400 and cannot figure out how to get points faster. Although I do play a lot as just infantry. Do you use mainly vehicles?
I maintained a solid 550spm outside of Metro. Basically I just always switch to the kit that is needed most. If I'm on a map that is going to have a lot of vehicles nearby, I'm running Engineer and making sure the explosive perk is up. If I'm doing any kind of TDM or close range combat, I'm normally keeping a healthy amount of M18s scattered around. If I'm in a rush level, usage of smoke from the assault class and revives to save tickets is probably one of the leading ways to actually push your team to victory.

A big way to increase score is either be with a squad leader, or be with a competent one that knows how to change orders and maximize squad score. This is one of the reasons I'm usually a top3 and have a lot of Ace Squads. Also, when you squad lead, you can quickly remove the ppl who have no clue what they are doing and are wasting a spot in your squad (they can go to the run anywhere randomly squads all they want).

I've been playing Metro recently to help improve with my recon/sniper skills (but I rotate about every class except Engi while in there). It was my most unused class, and the design of Metro allows you to basically just worry about your 12 and 6....you rarely have things coming from all angles and with Recon's poor defense, it gives me time to practice. Now that I am a lot more confident with it, I've been blowing faces off in a variety of Karkand maps :D.

Last but not least, I'm an achievement whore (which ends up helping with points). I'm working towards 5 stars with each weapon, I already have all my ribbons, and now I'm slowly pushing all my medals. All these bonuses are huge points. You look at where most of my score comes from, its 1/2 from combat, and the other 1/2 from bonuses.

I was squad leader one time yesterday and I didn't know what to do, but I randomly got "Attack Order - 20" come up, even though I didn't do anything.
Also I die a lot trying to get revives still
But then again I go for revives more than kills, as I'm sure _ALB_R3D X knows :p

Finally got my Jeep kills. Just went to Wake and jumped in a Jeep every time I spawned until I ran enough people over. One more assignment left. Gonna play with the P90 now for awhile and run it in support so I can resupply myself. I hear it burns through the 50 round clip pretty fast.

You need the B2K maps to accomplish assignments and gets those unlocks.
Those maps are worth the dinero in my opinion. I play the shit out of them.
They are mixtures of Urban and open area which allows for your preferred
play on one map. If you like Armor there is plenty of that also. Have you played
any of the Campaign ? I have played one level and have had the game since release:laugh:

Does any one know whether you get the next DLC
for free if you have the Limited Edition ?

I don't think this is the case as seen no mention ever. Technically we already got one "free" with our LE that being B2K.

It's not shit but, yeah, if you are enjoying Multi there is no compelling reason to play SP instead. And you already got a taste of what it's like in Co op. Less taxing on the system and can use higher settings generally, for the record.

Too hectic? Compared to COD which is essentially uncoordinated inf-only team deathmatch with tons of hackers?

Sounds like they are simply grabbing at straws attempting to rationalize intentionally missing out on what everyone knows is the superior experience.

i currently need to decide which to upgrade.
My CPU, My RAM or MY GPU.

I have as follows:

Phenom II 955BE stock
8GB Gskill Ripjaws
Gigabyte 1GB 5850

I do video editing and music composition/editing/mastering as well as gaming hence why the RAM is on the List. I also like to run a Minecraft Server too.

First of all you should overclock that CPU then consider perhaps getting another 5850 or better yet two lower end 7000 series 2GB cards in Crossfire.

Though it's not the best time to buy a GPU-Kepler fairly close apparently-and the lower ends aren't even out yet.

If I'm going to OC the CPU, I need to get a better cooler than my N520. Ive tried OCing before and it never worked out.

what about the RAM?
My Crosshair V board can handle upto 32GB

8GB is the sweet spot for this particular tittle.I'd suggest GPU,1 7970 or 2x 6950 2GB which I'm using right know.they're both reference but I don't see the need to unlock

8GB is plenty for BF3 but if your other production/editing apps can benefit from more then sure. Google it.

You have plenty of people to help you OC here. It's well worth it to help the system properly utilize and thus benefit from all that GPU bandwidth. In fact, upgrading your GPU probably doesn't make a whole lot of sense with a stock CPU. Crossfire definitely would be bottlenecked, at least somewhat. Crazyeyes and a couple other regulars can be more specific.

Benchmark Scores Benching is for bitches.
8GB is plenty for BF3 but if your other production/editing apps can benefit from more then sure. Google it.

You have plenty of people to help you OC here. It's well worth it to help the system properly utilize and thus benefit from all that GPU bandwidth. In fact, upgrading your GPU probably doesn't make a whole lot of sense with a stock CPU. Crossfire definitely would be bottlenecked, at least somewhat. Crazyeyes and a couple other regulars can be more specific.
Yeah go Intel. I was a disbeliever......now I BELIEVE!

i currently need to decide which to upgrade.
My CPU, My RAM or MY GPU.

I have as follows:

Phenom II 955BE stock
8GB Gskill Ripjaws
Gigabyte 1GB 5850

I do video editing and music composition/editing/mastering as well as gaming hence why the RAM is on the List. I also like to run a Minecraft Server too.
Only thing holding you back for BF3 is your GPU. CPU is fine, RAM is fine, everything else is fine.
