I can go with a positive KD the entire match, but im incredibly annoyed at getting picked off by a scope AR even worse a scope SMG as happened last match, an engineer with a scoped SMG picked me off from a busted ship in the middle of the map right as I turned the corner where I could see the ship at point A, I took one shot to the head from his SMG and was dead, now how is that balanced at all?

And I can compare source to frostbite, FPS is FPS, mechanics should remain the same, aka an SMG should only be useful at close range, no long range, an AR at medium/close, and only snipers at Long Range such as where i got headshot by the SMG. EA can't even get the basics right on that, and then they start players off disadvantaged, yea you've played for a year, your not seeing this from the eyes of someone that bought the game yesterday.
I guess I have my task for tonight: Start a new character and get up to level 2 or 3 in a few hours.

Here I go!

Haha no. I just think the game mechanics are different from games you're used to. It doesn't make them bad.

Leveling was super easy until you get to 25 or so. Prolly less than an hour for early ranks. We all started there, its not impossible, you just have to get the feeling of it. Thats what makes games so fun in my opinion...getting better at them, and thats why I cannot stand cod anymore, its the same exact feeling every single time, youve mastered the first and the rest are boring as hell. Battlefield is deep and provides a new experience every time you play or purchase a new title

- Start of as an engineer. The engineer start-up gun is really good at close quarters.

- Also you need to learn the maps and the associated tactics used on them. If some one is taking you out from across the map, you are not moving around enough or you are not taking cover properly.

- None of the AR's kill instantly if you shoot someone in the head. Not even with the magnum ammo upgrade.

Go through this website:

And improve your in-game knowledge first.

Yup, I started a new account just for fun and got to level 4 in a 3 hour play session.

It sucks advancing in levels past 30.

No maybe EA should have designed the game more appropriately, an AR round will pentrate all modern combat helmets unless its a graze on the helmet, and a bullet to the head kills, so ballistics are off. Most AR's will also pentrate modern Kevlar Chest Armor, and in a chest area with most AR's is usally also leathal, though in most FPS 2-3 chest shots, 1 head shot and 5-6 in the legs arms ect, the non vital area's why couldn't EA follow the rules of how this works, and instead decide this. I do have a problem here, I expect my FPS's to be fun but also maintain a certain amount of realism, hence why I liked COD and COD:UO, why I liked CSS. Now BF has been touted as realistic but I fail to see that, If I shoot someone in the head I expect them to damn well die, is that asking to much?

Then go play on hardcore servers. If you don't like the game don't play it? It's not that hard to do.

Considering the fact that everyone is wearing armor and helmets, and some have extra armor on, yes. Yes it is.

ok what armor in the modern Military is totally resistant to a 5.56 NATO, 5.54 Russian, or 7.62mm Round fired from Assault Rifles, none, zip notta, a direct shot to the head onto any modern Kevler helmet will pentrate and either kill or cause the target to loose brain functionality, yet this isn't reflected, thats an issue, also If i shoot you in the face, yea I shot a guy in the nose, point blank in his nose, he left with 23HP, point blank with the starting Assault Rifle, now so what his nose is bullet proof?
