I posted earlier before I looked at the links of the day - but I gotta agree - Ronin should be up in the top 3 at least.
As for BF2 and the special ops - I do not spawn camp perma bases. If they are perma bases - I get in, hit the objectives, and get out if I can. Otherwise, when I can get in there and take the base, I get in there and kill the arty, take the spawn point, then go after the UAV and Radar.
I can get tons of kill pts, medals and awards - but the skills column (second one in) - usually is damn low or negative when running Spec Ops only. Usually I swap over to engineer or medic to at least get it evened out.
