Anyone else getting pissed off by the SOFLAM? No, i'm no sniper - a man used Support or Engineer classes... I think I have maybe 600 points as recon after 40 hours of play, but my mate does and he recently gained the SOFLAM. Now i'm a MBt-guided missile/engineer Javelin toting kinda shooter, so we thought it best to experiment...
Now, to our disappointment, although undeniably effective - just watching the helo think he's got far enough away to avoid the missile, or thinking it'll be distracted by flares, or the tank that assumes he can take and risk one hit... well, its very effective.
However, there seems little to no benefit in it for the SOFLAM user - 20 points per lock on and 50 if I destroy something - and sometimes he doesn't even get those points? Is that a bug, or what... because it just seems to me that if someone will forgoe shooting themselves to be a good team player - which is what BF3 is all about - then they should be amply rewarded in points.

Sir Walter Raleigh declared in the early 17th century that "whoever commands the sea, commands the trade; whosoever commands the trade of the world commands the riches of the world, and consequently the world itself." This principle is as true today as when uttered, and its effect will continue as long as ships traverse the seas."

Agreed on the SOFLAM. I once spent a whole round, spotting and painting any smug tw@t vehicle that flew, rolled or rumbled about tw@tting Noobs. Hardly worth it besides the curiosity value, or watching yours truly pose and walt about on CCTV.
But there's something amusing about driving a Growler in third person aspect, with a crew clinging to the MG for dear life, while you rampage and fly across rough terrain, burst through fences, perform miracle stunts, only to end in flames under a M1 Abrams.Never tell your problems to anyone...20% don't care and the other 80% are glad you have them

I had a Carlos hathcock moment the other night, as two snipers shot each other at the same moment"What kind of Terrorist are you?"
"I am a terrifying....Terrorist... Are you scared?"
"God dammit! Oh, err, i mean Allah dammit..."
"so where did you train to be a terrorist?"
"At the Suicide Bomber facility"
"Oh really? Nice Place?"
"Why, what happened"

A decent few games with YMP, Jock and FourEM (AKA The chuckle brothers) You lot do seem attached to Javelin though. Couldn't move effectively 'cos of you twats!"Kids, you tried your best and you failed miserably. The lesson is, never try." - Homer J. Simpson.
