Latest patch just hitting now for steam and non steam clients

* Server browser downloads 100 entries instead of 500 in a chunk this makes the Cancel button more responsive
* Fixed crash during server browser refresh
* Low-level networking library switched back to the optimized version (the game client was temporarily running with one that had more debugging logic in it)
* Localization fixes in the scoreboard
* Server browser ping handling code modified

M95 + Magnum ammo is perfect for it, little drop, tons of damage. Plus, my squad mates appreciate it as it allows them to spawn closer to the action. I usually sit half way between the spawn point and the mcom sites. I absolutely love this game, so many possible play styles that can all work effectively.
Sniping in this game is better than any other I have played. I love sitting back and picking people from the third peg. Once you get the distances down from certain objects headshots against other snipers are a cinch. I am usually as far back as possible. Snipers never look that far back and if the kill cam is off they will never find you.

I will sit in a map and shoot objects from a long way off to get the correct arch.

This game is ****ing hard. I'm lucky to get 50 points and I just got 350 because I blew up a tank and killed a bunch of guys at once.

I'm starting to see a lot of people getting banned from servers for all types of hacks. I often wonder if people are hacking or are they just that good. I usually give them the benefit of the doubt but, I saw 2 entire squads get PB banned from a server I frequent this weekend. Sad.

My veteran status is foobar. It shows me as "4" when I should be "1". Should I be worried about getting PB banned?

It seems that everything isn't getting AA'ed. Like if I look at the UAV kiosk, it's AA'ed just fine, but the trees are inconsistently AA'ed. I'll post some screenies if I get a chance.

the squad defend and attack badge, how does that work? I got all the necessary attack orders (i think 20), but need one more defend order. Do you need to get it from one of your squad mates? Its 5000 point badge...

The game uses a ton of sprites for the trees and foliage and it uses some chunky looking dithering on them as well so there really isn't much that's going to be properly anti-aliased.

No you can do it yourself - just look at the objective and press Q(can take a couple of tries to make it work). Then kill someone while standing close to it.

Going for the all bronze stars badge myself! I'm almost finished with all of the sniper rifles and pistols.

Just had some fun... unlocked the CG which made me happy (now I can be cool like bob saget!).... but the best part was grabbing a tank, and finding what must have been a building full of enemies because after shooting some explosive shells into it, I kept seeing messages about double kills, and me being responsible for the enemy dying over and over - so either some medic kept reviving them into the shells, or they were holed up in that house of which I destroyed

I also got my first Achievement! Yay for 100 repairs. Anyway, that's my pitiful attempt at sounding awesome, now back to your regularly scheduled 25k point matches described by people better than me
