Haven't been on the forum in like week! Sorry! Anyway, I actually don't have a copy of BF3 at the moment. I sort of gave it up for a bit to play Mass Effect and lent my copy to a friend who lost his... and I haven't gotten it back yet I need to bug him for it. You'll see me online with it sometime this week though.
I didn't get MVP that match (I got MVP3, my friends who were firing all the shots took top honors), but when you end a match with that kind of accomplishment it doesn't matter what your place on the scoreboard is.
My new goal is to get the Laser Designator ribbon and I'd like to do it almost entirely with the tank. I don't play Recon much, so I don't often bust out the SOFLAM, but that third seat is quickly becoming my favorite place to be in a tank... odd as that sounds.
