Oh it can be annoying, but some of those pushes I'm the only assault, usually have several engineer, quite a few support and the odd sniper so I can't blame them for the lack of reses.

I've probably been revived 10 times since the game came out, excluding the hundreds of revives from friends on mumble. It's really pathetic :(

The majority of people don't play games like this just to support everyone else. They want to be the ones leading the charge, not cleaning up the mess. Even though it would ACTUALLY HELP if they did.

PS: Giving the Assault class the Defib is just silly.

I am really happy with BF3. I really enjoy playing it. I generally do not play FPS games but I have always loved the battlefield conquest experience.

Yep this is true, though if you're not a crack player, don't spend most your evenings and weekends playing BF3 (or shooters in general) you find you can be just as helpful playing a supportive role. This is why I love the BF series over CoD.

I'm still waiting to find people to squad up properly and enjoy some team player. Guess I'll have to keep waiting or hope a few of you guys bug me and look to play together.

Everytime I launch the game, after not having played for a few hours, it will "stop responding" when I first try to join a game after loading the map. After the retry it will be fine. I also get game crashes about every two hours, and I know its not my system. Origin sucks.
Overall its fun, and I am mvp everytime if I hog the AntiAir lav :)

edit: BF3 is 49.99 from ncix today with free shipping
Ordered mine today with this deal.

Definitely, but I don't mind the advantage of playing with friends in a competent squad because of that.

Yeah I can't say I'm a fan of the way the kits turned out. But I didn't really care for BC2 either, I liked 6 kits, 6 man squads and the like. One side effect is that being medic I can lead the charge and clean up the mess. It seems a bit overpowered and easy to get points.

Love the weapon/kit customization. BF3 is like a mix of Bad Company and BF2 which is good. Some of the maps I'm not too found of but really looking forward to the Karkhand expansion and the 4 maps from BF2. Menu's need a bit of work and they need to fix the green screen flicker. Other than that, I love the gameplay. Loved every BF game since I started playing the series with BF2. I was not fond of Titan game mode in 2142 though.
