So those numbers only tally up and accumulate further each time 4 or more of us play together in a match?

Pretty sure. Individual stats are always tracked...but platoon stats have to be 4 or more. Makes sense if Dice's definition of a platoon is "can't be 3 or less" cool.gif

I was looking at those Metro battlereports from last night... Man we wrecked them. Heck, I had 37 kills in one of them!

eek.gif

Metro might not be the best map design wise, but I'd be lying if I said it's not my favortie map to run support and hang back, provide team spawn, an lay down hell fire from a LMG as the recons and assaults push the line.

Throwing down a MP-APS, especially on the corners also really helps zap some of the rocketry and large caliber grenade spam. Unfortunately its taken out all too easily with rifle fire, but it restocks instantly and support can restock themselves quickly. It'll force the enemy to only use hand grenades or take out the MP-APS.

Well this is surprising and not surprising.

"The two vehicle types with the lowest number of kills? Attack Choppers are #2 and #1 is... *dumroll* Mobile AA!

Best is Land Transport."

Per Dice. Shocked to see the Mobile AA but not shocked to see the attack chopper.

Only 3-4 (OG) maps have one, and only one per side. People also don't always use it, which makes sense since it's useless in CQC vehicle combat (but it is surprisingly good against infantry). So, its not used much because it's a sit at the other end of the map type of thing that only the worse KDR whores find fun.

Problem is when it is used, it's deadly as crazy to anything in the air. I sat on Caspian Border the other night in some trees away from the action and kept the sky's clear for a good 10 min until one of the jet pilots got fed up and flank c4'd me the far away around.

Apparently my local Best Buy has it in stock for $90, but Amazon sells it for $80, Newegg $82, and I've had no problem lately getting BB to price match them. I pay $4 a month for the modem from TWC. So I think I'll just stop by tomorrow on my way home from work and see if BB has it...unless I find a better one to go after.

Now I need a router. Our phones have AC capability, so I should probably look for one of those.

Cool, BB didn't carry 'em when I was looking. I chose between it and another 8-channel modem. I can't pass along any reviews other than it has been flawless for 8 months. My ASUS router lets me sit in my car on the street outside my house on the G spectrum (N has far less distance). It's been flawless for 3 years. Cheers

I figured since they are overpowered that it wouldnt be dead last. Jeeps should be in that list and they arent the bottom 2? I was shocked and this also could mean that the Mobile AA might not get a nerf at all, aside from the damage distance.


Also Tyrant, you could be part of our clan and your NOM's. You can be in 3 at one time.

From what experience I have flying against mobile aa and using the aa, its not a good tool to get kills with, but it will definitely make air vehicles unusable. So you will get a lot of disables and vehicle destroys but the pilots end up bailing or getting bad luck deaths from slamming into the ground. Most of my kills with the aa is shooting infantry on the ground or purely from shooting mph in the attack chopper smile.gif

That combo rules.

The AA should be used for killing infantry first, and if something happen to fly overhead then shoot it down. Such a waste to sit back at spawn for the occasional fly swat. That thing's a beast.

I might be on tonight if I don't pass out from eating too much BBQ. Storming here in SoCal, so probably stay home and keep dry.

Ha I will definitely join...I'm out if town now...maybe one day when I finish up that dang bathroom I'll hop on. I still haven't tried out second assault, I need to test the skies on Caspian and firestorm. Also I'll admit I'm a little scared to get back on, gotta knock a lot of rust off
