      Well I do... though the timing kinda sucked... they could have timed it later in the night. Specially since the server peaked usually around 6-12 >.<;

            Stats DO matter for people like me, who play fantasy BC2. I drafted Badger for a boost in the motion mine assists stat, Ostry for vehicle points, Unload for points in all categories, and Gunney for the Awesomeness stat.

            Wasn't a perfect draft, though. I used a 1st round pick on Zho, what a damn waste. The guy rarely gets any minutes.

                    Re: Maintenance work on Tuesday the 1st of February

                    all of em, but specifically.
                    Team score
                    objective score
                    squad score

                    and then my amount of kills with each weapon so I can go for platinum with it.

                      Re: Maintenance work on Tuesday the 1st of February

                      I think the biggest stat is SPM.

                      Why?

                      -SPM (Score Per Minute) gives you how much points a person earns in a given amount of time. Whether the person arms/disarms, kills, throws out motion balls, heals/supplies, and basically anything. Obviously the higher it is the more you are actually doing for the team.

                        Re: Maintenance work on Tuesday the 1st of February

                        Thanks for the update Zenchi. Were they doing maintenance last night too when the EA servers went down on us?

                        RE points: Obviously points on a ranked and reward game like BF2 are needed for ranking up, weapon and perk upgrades. As with many war type games, score per minute can be misleading when it comes to teamwork or player involvement - discussed at length on older game forums like BF2, 2142, POE, PR etc.. A person who kills just a few people , but arms or defends the mcomms/flags or stays hidden for a good spawn point may have a lower score yet did a few vital things to help the team. Also, some players seed the server and play with only a few people so while they play for a long time they don't always have a chance to rack up a lot of points. It can depend on the player and circumstances. I've gone 25-2 with 4500 points and my team lost, and other times 6-25 with 800 points and my team won... Obviously I look at my bad k/d ratio and think what I could've done better to die less, yet knowing that those deaths were from repeatedly arming or disarming the mcomms for an eventual team win is a greater satisfaction. One thought: If I only had more medics with me at the mcomms to revive me or other teammates in support those 25 deaths could've been reduced. Just one example of many factors that go into players' stats. Each player has a different style and ability which is what makes a team unique and each round can have a different result depending on how the combination of players come together for good, or bad, teamwork.

                        Some players do everything perfect and get high points, k/d, less time played... cudos to them. A few rounds of tournament play can quickly humble even the perceived "perfect" player. Especially when you get killed within .001 seconds by a 14 year old who's using his grandmother's laptop :icon_eek:. And no Ostry, I don't want to play those guys again...:row__684:.

                        Anyhow, back to the topic, let's hope Dice/EA get things sorted out correctly during this maintenance period so we can all play again!

                          Did the EA servers go down last night??? I was having a terrible time with lag and framerate last night. Wonder if that was the reason. Was going to blame the rain in my area that causes me to lose connection alot when I'm on the internet.

                            These guys that screwed us the other night are way older than 14. They are a pro team which got to quarter finals of DICE sponsored TWL Vietnam Tournament.

                              Was it Epison, Dynamic, or Rival?

                              And yea, most sponsored teams are 21 and older so they weren't kids, this is their part-time job.
