You're screwed.

Lol, the community that still plays BF3, from my experience, is pretty darn skilled. I might have just sucked, idk.

So which MP game mode is best for beginners? Where can I cut my teeth without annoying everyone else too much?

I only go to Solstheim to get things done. Manly things. Like ripping Netches apart with my bare hands, or pummeling snide Dark Elves into Flin.

Conquest and TDM are probably your best bet, maybe play Op Metro or the CQC maps to get a hang of the infantry combat. If you're going to use vehicles you really want to have somebody in your squad with you in the tank/APC/helicopter, not only do you increase your firepower but either of you can pop out and repair while the other is shooting (obviously with a helicopter that's a little different). One of the most annoying things in the game is when someone takes a vehicle by themselves and gets blown up immediately or worse abandons the vehicle and lets the enemy take it.

I'm interested in this...

Well, I just played a few rounds of TDM as the Assault class.

-No mics in the entire game, except me of course.
-First round I went 3-7, don't remember the map.
-Second round I went 3-3, Gulf of Oman.
-I thought that Crouch/Prone with the RS would be weird, but I had no problems with it.
-Someone meleed me, and there was a execution-like cinematic when he appeared in front of me and knifed me. That was pretty awesome.
-I really like the destructible environments, and the effects in general. Grenade blasts have nice smoke and dirt/grit effects.
-I didn't feel "disconnected" from my weapon, which sometimes happens in CoD.
-Sticking with teammates and flanking, using cover, drawing fire for teammates so they could kill the enemy was all satisfying and worked much better than running and gunning by myself.
-I made Private First Class. Yay! Lol.
-The report of a sniper rifle scares the crap out of me.

I noticed that sometimes "Offer Healing" with the Select button appears in the corner of the screen. I assumed that to mean someone was requesting healing, so I hit Select in hopes that it helped them.

Battlefield is about conquest, but i guess playing some TDM to get the hang of the mechanics is not a bad idea. And lol, you don't push the back button when someone needs healing, you through down a med pack.

And if you want to play with some cool dudes that will show you the ropes, hit me up. GT: RedFive3.

You spend nine months trying to get out, and the rest of your life trying to get back in.

Well, first you to have to unlock the med pack with the assault class just by playing. It's one of the first unlocks I believe...... can't remember, it's been so long.

And I wasn't trying to make fun of you or nothing, I just thought that was funny.
