Arty kills do count as kills in your global score. I, absolutely, am sure of this. I've seen my K/D ratio take a huge climb in my ground defense stats. Generally when i play commander i'll hop in a TOW, MG, or Stinger to protect my back base while i perform my duties as commander. You will notice this by the very low number of road kills in ground defense for me. In the last week i've raised my K/D in ground defense by 1.2.
They may not count as kills during a round but you surely get commander points for them. Not sure if kills as commander as just a kit count globaly...though i suspect that they do.
I will gladly take CO any time i see noone has it.
I disagree with Slayem's comments about CO's getting medals for sitting on their butts. I'm quite busy as a CO what with all the spotting, orders to give out, UAV flights to plan, and Arty to direct. Then theres the never ending job of repairing my own assets, because few people are willing to stop their capping and killing to do a job i've asked them to do. A commander gets no points for repairing his own assets which i think is a terrible injustice. A good CO works his butt off and deserves that gold star if he puts up the numbers to get it.
As for the fellow who said he only got 5 points for being a commander. DUDE what are you doing wrong? I've never had that terrible a round as a commander. I'm commonly around 30 points IAR before the 2x.
