Ok first off, great game. Server issues are to be expected this close to release. Anyways I want to start recording my games, what sort of things do I need to do that? And also, it seems like nobody spots enemies or revives people. I spot everyone I see,
it helps the whole team. And i use the medic class 90% of the time and I'll have about 15 or so revives a match. I'll rush across a battlefield to revive someone. I got accused of hacking the other day in a game of conquest because I was 4-1 in kills, but
had almost 10k points. If people would play the objectives instead of trying to get kills you'll just about always win. Does anyone else have this problem while playing objective games?
All of that. I think, when you spot, all allied players get indicator on HUD, minimap and verbally (yet only the type of threat verbally, not its location. Like "OMG Enemy tank sighted, in your area!!").
There are other rules for when they enter cover and you loose sight. I think they dissapear from HUD first, and from minimap after that. Special rules for this. I'm not sure.
Sometimes enemies show up only at the minimap and not on the HUD at all, and I think that only means they are firing.
Not as a problem.. but i see your points. It's cool how you are dedicatet as a medic. Not alot of them out there now.
But people aren't spotting enough, no, I agree to that. But when playing with a squad of people you know, you are gonna spot more since it seems natural, as you get more tactical when cooperating with people you know. I would say that is the solution really.
And I guess people go for kills instead of objective so much because that's how you rank up your weapons.
Do I get people harping me for my score in objective games? Lol, no not usually, but props for playing the game it's meant to be played (to an extent). If I did get accused for hacking because I was top of the scoreboard I'd be quite flattered though.
The spot system as changed from the other Battlefield titles, in Bad Company when a player spots a target, the spot (red triangle) displays for a set time. Now in BF3 you can only see the spot if the player is in your line of sight, if they move behind cover
they lose the spot, This is the most likely reason why we are seeing less spotting.
Regarding the players accusing others for hacking, well that quite simple, we have alot of new first time players to Battlefield, which are used to other FPS game (cough COD) where positive K/D guarantees success and don't understand that playing the objective
will earn you more score then kills do.
I had a similar game the other day where I got 2 kills and 5 deaths, but I finished as the highest scoring player in that match, because I spent the whole game capturing flags, handing out ammo, and kit switching and reviving my downed team mate, the guy below
me in second place got around 22 kills and 5 deaths, but I scored around 1500 points more them him.
What the OP is talking about is a great example of how a player which is new or not the best at FPS games can still be a value assist to there team by playing the objective. The only tip I would give to the OP is to not become a Rambo reviver, meaning don't
revive a player for him to be killed by the same enemy a second after being revived, clean out the area of enemies and then revive your team mate.
