Lol, this game has quite a learning curve.. haha, I cant wait to be able to even contribute to my teams score.. Hey, thanks for the heads up with my eGO tag, i didn't even notice i displayed incorrectly. Now just to find more hours in the day to play!
Recon IS easy, but it is a bad way of helping the team well. I would say medic or assault to start off with. Also, if you don't have any other battlefield games, download Battlefield Heroes for free and link it to your ea account. This gives you veteran status, which unlocks some things like the med kit and defibulators, as well as the M1 Garand.
