It's easy. First you play conquest for a short period of time and then you spawn on someone inside a big ship. After that you try to blow up some kind of ticket machines. And when you have, you just start all over again. Easy. ;)

Or sometimes you spawn on your carrier, watch a load of empty boats disappear. Swim to the nearest island. After finally making land after 20 mins swimming, get sniped by johnny no mates, whose been sitting by himself all day camping and taking pot shots at passerbys (pity poor johnny as he still hasnt fully understood that camping at the edge of the map doesnt win you the game). Finally make it to an island, watching all your medics run past you not bothering to revive your nearly dead body, just as your carriers been breached. Thankfully Johnny no mates is on hand to take out your head, freeing you up to spawn back at your carrier.

Spend 10 mins trying to navigate the samey corridors, watching one of your points be destroyed, only to open up a door, by yourself, in to a room full of the opposition. Whilst waiting to redeploy, weep loudly into your hands whilst the rest of your side is still dicking about on islands, rather than defend their own carrier, spawning only to die seconds later by johnny no mates who spied you through the opening of the ship.

Congratulations! Youve just completed your first round of carrier assault.

I'd have been dead set on having a snipe off with Johnny no mates myself. The last snipe off I had was on BFBC2. Mr Plax and I spent most of the game having a snipe off with 2 snipers on the other team. It was quite entertaining and like an unspoken game within the game where we had an unspoken unofficial meeting point for handbags and chocolate biscuits.

@Plaxinator It's great when that kind of "friendships" pops up! :)

Sometimes, when I get killed a lot of the same player, I text him with a smiley and a "please stop it" message. Always gets good response on those...

I actually made a BFBC2 xbox friend like that. He kept killing me in novel ways. Repair tool, knife, medic paddles, UAV etc. So we had a bit of message banter and a laugh.
