DasCapitolin with no spaces? Tried to find it with spaces and nothing came up.

Just making sure, haha. You can send me a party invite or something if you're still playing. I was taking a break after about 9 games in a row but I'm ready to play whatever for a while now.

That was fun, and certainly helped my win/loss record, haha. We were usually dominating the scoreboard. I missed a few kills in the tank because my mouse batteries died. I was wondering why I couldn't look around all of a sudden. And if the EOD Bot or whatever would control like it was being driven on grass and not ice, it would be awesome to use.

On a kind of related note, what's your impression of the campaign, if you've tried it, Olin? The four missions I've played seem similar to Black Ops, for lack of a better comparison.

Funny that you should mention it, because I tried the single-player campaign last night and wasn't too impressed. The surprise control mechanism (space bar pounding, press E, mouse pounding, etc) is so bad, you can't help buy die at least a few times. The instruction is usually pretty bad, too, leading you to guess at what you're supposed to do. Overall, I see BF3 as a lackluster single-player game because of poor interaction sequence.

Agree completely. On the other hand my 8yr old son loves it who would have thought

Last night was not my best night. I don't think I went positive KdR once the entire night. Although Olin getting teamkilled, calling the guy who killed him a jerk, and immediately coming back and shooting him in the back of the head was the funniest thing I've seen all week.
