I would like it please because I pre-ordered and never got my code.  Gamestop corporate told me I was supposed to get it from the store and the store acted dumb.

Did you order online or in-store?  If you did it online you may just have gotten the same new email I did.

Best moment of play this weekend so far?

Hark warps into a session in progress on the other team.

I come around the far right of the map and somehow he's already there and knife's me.

About 20 secs later he sends me a message: "Hey, thanks for the dogtag."

I lol'd.

Played for about 6 hours last night and really had a good time.

It is different enough from COD4 that I'm not getting burned out.  The maps are just huge and if you get good squads it really feels like a big battle.

was fun.

Apparently once you max out your rank the form stat changes to a skill rating between 1-50 with lower being better.  Only one person can be Skill level 1.

I'm at 16 right now, trying to lower it but it doesn't want to budge.

ATB is currently 38, get crackin man! slywink

Wonderpug is 17, so close.

JarrodHK sittin in the mid at 28.

How is said rank determined? 

Also, it appears that my stats have gone crazy. I would say that I comfortably average between 20-30 SPM from match to match, yet my score on the BF stats page says I average 8. something.

This further makes no sense as if I compare to teggy, who has fewer points in more time, my SPM is half his?

Thoughts?

Yeah, the stats are clearly still messed up. Sometimes when I my last round is a really bad round, my SPM will show up as like .7 or something. When my last round is a really good round, it will show up near 30.  It's hard to know if any of the stats are right.\

And thanks for rubbing that in, by the way.

Not sure of the exact formula, but it has something to do with how retarded your gamertag is on a scale of 1-50. Might be why yours is so high slywink

Heal/Repair squad is 15, there must be some ones missing.  The "hot" vehicle thing is interesting.  That would explain why I sometimes get points for blowing up empty vehicles and other times don't.

Oh yeah, the objective defend bonus is missing from that list. I'm not sure of the exact criteria needed to get that one. Seems like proximity to a crate.

Shame we always get stuck on opposite teams.

It's the hours of time in the beta/demo and the 400 hours or so of Modern Combat.

I tend to go in streaks.  Either I'm doing really good, or I'm mortar'ing my team mates.  I managed to end up an entire match at -1 because of team damage and kills in the first 5 minutes.  Wasn't from killing boosters either.

Having a squadmate or two that understand the benefits of staying out of sight inside the enemy base so that others can spawn on them makes a big difference.

Also having people that understand that defending from near the crates is much better than running/driving halfway across the map to try and base camp the attackers is helpful.

I really love the MG36 while playing support, and using the demo kit, especially on defense.  I tend to get 100+ percent accuracies with the rockets since I am usually shooting vehicles with multiple people in them.

Been playing quite a bit of the PS3 version and so far I haven't seen but one person doing the repair thing, and no lag. Dumb teammates seems to be the main problem, that and way to many people playing sniper on atttacking. Seems like 80% of all games I play in end up with the defense winning simply because there isn't enough people chraging into the enemy base, I mean really sniping doesn't do much when respawns take 10 sec and they respawn on top of the objectives.

Are you in good form (arrow pointing up) or Bad form( arrow pointing down), at least..that's all I can figure on that.  The other is Score Per Minute.

The form is a rating (obviously) apparently once you hit level 25 you can see the number instead of the arrow.  Ranks from 1-50, lower the better per hark's posts earlier.

Okay, my BF:BC story...

On Harvest Day (I believe..the Attackers start with a base and boats, leading out into a large field.) I grabbed a tank, and proceded to set up 'hull-down' along a ridge.  I was firing long distance shots into the defender's inital base, killing snipers who set up on the second floors of the buildings and barn, and nuking tanks that moved out from the base.  I just moved some and repaired as I took damage.  It was a beautiful run too, with me scoring 563 points on my time.  The next closest person on my team was just barely at 200 pts.  Tanks + cover rocks.

Press up on the d-pad when in multiplayer to take pictures. They have stated on the web page that we should soon have access to the pictures, but Harkonis seems to have found out how to get at his.  I believe they said that you can keep a max of 10 pictures.

On the brighter side, I now have ATB's dogtags.

Looks like they have made some improvements to the stats site.  The "My Photos" tab now shows up and you can view your photos.

Also, if you look at patches and wildcards now, it shows the additional criteria you need to get the award, not just the IAR criteria. It doesn't show your current progress, however.

At around noon I stopped being able to sign in to the EA servers on Live - not everyone was having the problem and I don't know if it's fixed yet.

Stats seem like they are mostly working, but the SPM is still pretty fubar.

Score per Minute -6.171   (it seems to only show the last round or last few rounds since I ended the night on a team killing streak of 7 intentionally slywink )


This seems pretty indicative of the balance issues of the game combined with the general ignorance of the general population of privates.

Woohoo! I finally got my "Be the best" achievement/"High Card" trophy, and it was totally legit. It was a 500+ point effort that included two crate destructions. I almost had the last one, too, which is a shame, because it would have been worth two trophies I haven't gotten yet.

Something definitely seems glitched with the avenger trophy, as I have gotten the wildcard for 50 avenger trophies yet I don't have the actual trophy yet.  I also haven't gotten a single savior trophy, which seems a little odd.  I look at Hark's trophies and he has the savior and avenger trophies, but his savior wildcard shows he has 0 savior trophies.
