how to see enemy?
I am total noob, been playing for half hour or so. I realise knowing the map is realy important, but I couldn't see any of my killers, not a single time. Sometines I see people running but how can I know if its russian or german, or ♥♥♥ or american? And why sometimes above my comrade theres number and rank or something, and most of the time nothing? How to learn of I cannot understand who is who?

Oh well ..i think it is more difficoult than other fps ..but not so impossible.
If u notice germans and russians will run in different ways ,same for ♥♥♥♥ and americans .
For exemple when a german soldier is running he keep the rifle in one hand ...russians have both hands on the rifle.
But i think u have just to play and get on it some hours.
Don't run and keep eye contact with your team (look which direction they shoot at).
In this game maps are quite big and full of places where the enemy can hide .
So run then stop... look ..run again ..never stay there fore more than few seconds ..(if u shoot moove away faster )
So u can survive and learn maps ...

well i think that also the movements are importants..each side moves in differen way...look at your teammates while running crouching ...the look tho enemyes ...
Different..also helmets ...and fire positions..
You have many point of view

lets say you noticed someone crouching in some grass, and you are not able to see his uniform clearly. How do you figure to shoot him or not?

You can try a few things in such a case. First of all: Check the way the player is facing. If he faces towards you it is probably an enemy, trying to defend his capzone.
Also look at the edges of your screen. If an enemy is in your peripheral vision a small circular indicator will appear if it is an enemy, so look away shortly and see if one of those appears.
You can also try to press Z and see if the player in question is spotted. If he is, it is an enemy.
For a new player though, I'd say if in doubt, don't shoot, maybe ask in the chat if someone is crouching in this position. Identifying each side really comes with experience.

Check your map, if there's an allied dot in that position they are friendly, otherwise it's an enemy.

Yes, seeing enemy can be a challenge, especially human players.
Against the bots, I do just fine; they tend to run in the open towards the objective points.

Against human opponents, on the other hand, in my last online game I rarely ever saw the enemy; when I did see them, I was dead even before I could raise my weapon.
And if I raised my head above the cover, even for a split second, I was dead.
Apparently, one really needs to maximize weapon bonuses and only play on servers with a really high ping if venturing into the hardcore servers.

I was playing as a rifleman.
Maybe a better weapon would have helped but I want to be expert with the rifle before trying another weapon.

all what the guys said and maybe 300+ hours of playtime

You are not always going to see the enemy when they shoot you. You have a limited field of view and can only process so much of what is currently in front of you. When you move you are having to process more new stuff than a guy that is not moving and waiting on you. That guy sitting there is already aiming down sight and you are not. If you are both moving it could come down to who sees who first.

Also I could have seen you run to cover. I might be on higher ground and your head isn't as hidden as you think. I could see part of your head and I am just waiting for you to raise up and give me a better shot.

Sometimes i see new players behave just they are playing other games (AA cod Bf ).
Just hit and run. Unuseful here .If u run too much or keep your head up you die...In a second.
You have to keep in mind that if u see an enemy most lickey he can see you to.
Moreover ..if u notice those are big maps .
Many times you are killed from a place on your side while looking straight .
Keep in mind to control left and right flank. Don't run for too long.And watch maps while little plane is doing his job.So you can see where the enemy positions are.
Don't stay in the middle of a window or a door .They see you .
When behind a trence you shoot then get down ..moove left or right (don't shoot in the same place.)Sometimes if you don't hit the target at first bullet .you try to hit him again ..but every other enemy has already seen you...So if u miss the first change position.

its tricky but not impossible.
first, make sure you won't be seen yourself, the less you move the harder it is to see you.

after you get in a safe place scan the area, check for every little movement, check for abnormal colors. seeing a rock with a wierd brown piece sticking out of its top can mean its an enemy helmet.
check every window you see and make sure they are empty. especially the popular ones like bunkers
also, check to see where shots are coming from its very helpful to tell where the enemy is.

seeing the enemy is actually not my biggest problem, but identifying who is who is confusing
