As by the title, this is a rant. It is not a rant about glitches in the game or Electronic Aholes. This is a rant about the players. Every day, every minute, and every second I play Battlefield 3 (and sometimes other BF games as well), all I ever see is people blatantly ignoring the objective. I know people have the right to play however they want, but honestly, at least have the courtesy of helping the team. One perfect example for this? I was playing on Strike at Karkand, Rush. My team was on the second base. A team mate walks right up to the A objective and sits next to it. I try to cover while he plants. The only thing is, he didn't plant. He sat there for about 5-10 seconds and then proceeded to run out onto the road and try to kill enemies who weren't even looking at us. Battlefield 3 has been over ran. It has been over ran by players who care more about their kill count than they do their win count. I mean, why play an objective based game if you are NOT going to play the objective? Why make the experience for others a tough one so that you may have a shiny 1.03 KDR? Why, just why? It makes absolutely no sense to blatantly not play the objective. Last time I checked, playing the objective has no downfalls. Of course, you may lose, but at the end of that game you'll know that you tried. On top of that, it will not only make you a better player but it will also make you progress through the 145 ranks much easier than if you just went after kills. Another benefit of playing the objective, is when you do it right. When you play the objective right, you start winning. When you start winning, the other team loses the momentum. When the other team loses momentum, they start making mistakes. When the other team starts making mistakes, kills are easier. When kills are easier, it is easier to protect the objective. When it is easier to protect the objective, you win. When you win, you are a boss! Be a boss and play the objective! PTFO!
