The point incentives DICe added encourage people to work as a team.
But of course it is possible to run into the dumb people who won't give you ammo at all... grrrr....
But if you like the teamwork aspect, find some friends to play with, it is awesome working as a squad with voice chat and everything.
Okay. Thanks for telling us.

This almost makes me wanna get the demo and (eventually) the game."
Almost. Still thought the first one was too meh to really get excited about this.
" Infact, the power drill is seriously overpowered. It's basically kill on contact and you can hold it down for a good 20seconds or so at a time...you just mow through people. "
I've had some pretty solid "epic" times with the PC demo as well. Took out a blackhawk with a mortar as it was taking off, looked fucking awesome, also shot an ammo container across a building to get it near team mates for the points without having to expose myself to tank and sniper fire.
Though if giving ammo/health/reviving didnt give the amount of points it does I doubt you'd see that many people trying to use them for others.

Sounds like Battlefield 2 used to be back in the day. People actually worked together and medics did their job. I mainly was a medic. You could score better as a medic than a regular soldier without even shooting once the whole round. From what I remember, handing out medkits fave you points and bringing downed dudes back gave you a lot of points. I believe it was a 2:1 ratio or something like that of heals to a kill. It was definitely worth it to be a medic. Not to mention the medic's M16 was one of the best guns in the game. It was practically a sniper rifle in single shot mode. I don't regret any one of the 200+ hours I put into that game. It was always a blast. I really enjoyed the squad mechanic. I remember once I teamed up with these dudes from various places in Canada and the U.S. Complete strangers I'd never even played with. I didn't even have a headset but the squad leader made plans, told us them and we went from there. We did good and it was tons of fun. Way more fun than any CoD game was for multiplayer.
" **Big story** "
Only parts im not a fan of, are people who sit back and snipe the entire time doing nothing but worrying about K/D ratio, people who waste time by camping helicopter spawns trying to jack it before anyone else, if its the other team doing it fine makes sense, but when you see 3 or 4 of your team just running around the pad doing nothing it can get kind of old. I will say though when I defend and end up sniping having team mates run over and throw me an ammo pack is quite refreshing. Oh and of course watching medics revive people only for me to kill them again never gets old, ever.
The game just has more epic moments than MW2. The first time I took a chopper down with an RPG was a great one. I also got a great taste of teamwork when me and some random guys in my squad were holding down B in the second part of the map. Health and ammo crates a-plenty.
BC2 is just a perfect Battlefield experience. I wonder what BF3 will do to top the sublime perfection and balance that BC2 MP delivers. Every weapon feels right, every class makes sense and every aspect of the game is just so well tuned.
I too was surprised at how much I'm enjoying the demo. I was a pretty big modern warfare fan, but playing this has made me lose all interest in getting mw2. Love being a medic and getting that sense of satisfaction of bringing people back to life. I also like changing it up and going with the class that makes sense at the time. E.g. our tanks are getting fucked up, I'm gonna be an engineer for a bit, or we need to take them down a peg or two, lets go for some straight up offence. And I haven't even got into helicopters or anything like that yet.
But fuck those snipers!
" @SeriouslyNow said:There's definitely going to be more to it than just that. They'll need to tune the balance, vehicles, weapons and classes to deal with bigger maps. I'm guessing player counts per server will increase too."I wonder what BF3 will do to top the sublime perfection and balance that BC2 MP delivers. "Bigger maps. "
Aye it is glorious. The best thing in my opinion is just how big the battle is outside yourself. Lst night me and a friend were on the "front line" with bullets all around us, tank shells everywhere sniper fire left right and center.
"Ah fuck, they' re on the hill."
"How do we get up there?"
"Wich of our guys are up there?"
"We'll spawn on them."
And so it was.
The one thing that would make this game the best battlefield game would be if they had UAV's like the predator drones they use in afghanistan. I miss fixed-wing aircraft. 1943 had them, I think it would be cool if instead of that helicopter thing, you had a UAV that could drop hellfire and other missiles, and also spot tangos automaticly.
Yeah I would have to say engineer and medic are definitely some of my favorite classes, I love actually helping out my team, not just for the points, you realize as you play more when you really do your role(as any class really but especially) as a medic to heal people and an engineer keeping vehicles alive, it makes the biggest difference. I always loved doing the same in TF2.
I usually play with a few friends and we make our own squad and split to different classes to balance things the best, but I do what I can whenever I get the chance. Running around reviving fallen teamates, especially on attackers because it gains back your lost tickets, is very satisfying.
