    @ TB: Could have linked to this, takes less effort to find it then :D

    @ Brembo, sold it to fund a car didn't you?

    @ Boltlock, definitely wait until the full game is out before you decide.

    Tried to get a few rounds in before I go out for the footy but it's been unplayable whichever server I've been on - lagging, stuttering & jumping of frames. Had no problems like this until now.

    Definitely wait, and then if you do decide to sell it give me a shout. :)

    That's a different scenario then, if you are having problems with other games, although if others are reporting it then it's very likely that it will be fixed in a drivers update. Still, I fully appreciate what you are saying about getting a refund while you still can without any fuss.

    I suspect this has been addressed prior, but giving that I failed to resist having a go and checking my system would cope (and it does!), I downloaded this. First surprise, how fast it downloaded. Max'd the line out (20Mbit) the whole way down.

    Second surprise, the windowed mode. No bother- alt+enter to fullscreen. But then the mouse seems to have issues clicking on things (like the menus are in a window that I can't reach or align to). Drop to windowed mode, and I can see the cursor and click. A bit annoying.

    Otherwise, I noticed the same as others - lots of solo folk getting in K/D stats asap. I hope that the ranking system puts some good emphasis on the team based play rather than out and out kills.

    What amused me though having never played any Battlefield game before (!), was wandering about, getting shot by campers/snipers a lot. Respawning and having the same thing, and suddenly at the end of the round, I ranked up, having not landed a single bullet in anything other than foliage and trees.

    Feel sorry for anyone who spawned near me (that spawn ribbon thing?) or had me as "squad leader", as I couldn't have organised a turd in a toilet!

    Nice to see that list so far only covers one of the major game killing bugs so far.

    Had a few times today where I could not fire a gun until I died. It was like the left mouse button wouldn't work, even changing gun or pressing escape to go into the menu didn't work.

    I had to suicide to be able to fire again :thumbsdow

    Anyone else think it would be good for them to release the beat again in week two with the updates and effectively reset everyones stats?

    Nah. Or else I'll never get to spend too much time on Rage otherwise!!!!

    This taste until the 10th will cover me until release i think. After all theres only so many times i can hang around toilet cubicles in the metro area before i get done. :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    EDIT: Ignore my ramblings i mis read as a week or two.:facepalm::facepalm:

    oh, and despite them trying the hard sell of 'Battlefield Facebook' rather than their matchmaking mess, why not click on a person and say join squad and the pair of you are joined to a server that has room for you both? The battleface invites dont even put you on the same team!

    It's alright, but there's better guns in the game.

    I'm sure I saw a post somewhere asking why DICE tweeted for people to stick to 32-player servers, but I can't find it. Anyway, I just saw this post on the 360 forums so I guess this is why they sent out the warning:

    I agree. IMO BC2 is better than this Beta (Metro Rush anyway) and considering all the time they've spent on BF3 it's disappointing to see so many basic things wrong. Can they really fix all these issues in just a few weeks? Pushing it. :(

    It's pretty surprising. EA only allow RSPs (ranked service providers) the server code but one of those has leaked it (it was also leaked in the alpha stage) and so people are able to do whatever they want with it.

    that's it even a friend phoned today saying it is no different to MOH online:eek: i just said wait for CQ as that is were BF3 will shine as that is what BF3 is, your right though BFC2 does look better but it is beta,
    i doubt Dice will make a right mess up after what was said and some of the original team from BF2 are on the bf3 development and waited over 5yr to do a replacement for BF2 due to wanting build a new engine just for this game.

    Beta To-Update Notes 1:

    So these are the to-update notes for the Final Version of BF3 so far from the Beta, nothing major so far

    Also there is a patch for the beta out, just updated mine only took a few seconds!
