In the last three days, I’ve played 10.5 hours of BF2, gotten 735 kills and 189 deaths (for a 3.88 kdr), and accumulated 1,944 points. This may sound pathetic (though it’s actually quite impressive), but the first-place player has 2,393 overall hours (compared to my 286).
And for anyone who thinks artillery doesn’t count for kills…look at this. The first-place guy has 135,990 kills. He has 27,088 weapon kills, 10,021 equipment kills, and 31,542 vehicle kills – that’s only 68,651 kills. The bulk of his time – 1165 hours – has been spent as commander, accumulating those other 67,339 kills.
