Agreed, it's much better than BFBC2. In BFBC2 it feels a lot more noobish and people can kill you with any weapon so easy from a distance. To me this is not the case in BF3, since the guns are much harder to aim and a lot more what seems real kick back.

I think DICE have improved over the awesome sounds of BFBC2 as well, with the weapons in BF3 sounds more beefy and not toys like CoD. Also I love running and being able to straft at the same time, BFBC2 really sucked with that.

Guys to get into the massive 64 player Caspian Border conquest beta map with jets/vehicles that is pass-worded just start your battlelog, Set your server filter to Caspian Border under the map option and select a server, When it asks for a password enter the following.

Password: shoppingcartsareagoodride

The password changes every day but a quick Google and you can have the new password within seconds.

Yeah, servers are all full. Damn this game is popular, especially with 64 players each server.

If you spam it for a few minutes you will get in no problem. Or if you use Google Chrome you can get in without needing a password due to some javascript fail.

-Glitches? Its a beta. Its a beta of a map that was released as alpha and if anything, there are now even more bugs than in the alpha, stop stating the obvious...

-Spawn Killers? Stop sucking Yeah i can help getting killed by a player who's head is only visible as the rest of his body has "sunk" into the ground and he cannot be killed yet seems to have no problem killing guys that have spawned in seconds...

-Team Killers? Just douches, go to a different server, you will find this in any game. lol No you dont find team killers in games that have FF off, most of the UK caspian border servers had twats on doing this, ruin final game much with it like they did bf2 ?

-Sound is flawless here... Good for you well it isnt for many others

-Graphic settings don't work. Going from low to Ultra has no difference. Only 2 settings work. This is expected though to keep the file size down. If it was gonna keep the filesize down they wouldnt have bothered with half of the non owrking settings...

-Mouse laggy? Turn off HBAO and VSYNC. Same problem with BC2. already done it, input lag is probably down to the server lag

Most of what you complain about is user error. lol Yeah because i have no clue how to set a game up for the best possible lag free and high fps experience, only been doing it 10 years :/
Yeah all the stuff i mentioned is user error lmao, i have most of the settings at medium all AA is off, vsync is off, ambient occlusion is off altogether, like i said in a earlier post im hitting between 50 -75 fps


People don't seem to understand what a beta means though. It means that the game is still in development and beta is for testing features to find bugs... If you don't want to deal with bugs don't play a beta. Simple as that. People who are letting a beta change their opinion on the game are nothing but little bratty kids who want everything when they want it how they want it.
Awww im sooo sowwy for not liking teh game....
You idiot, a beta is also there for people to try and see if they like it, with only 4 weeks off release you would expect a better beta...keep deluding yourself Roadhog, obvious pre-orderer is obvious...Don't like my opinion even though it is based on nothing but my true sour experience with beta bf3 then dont ****ing read my posts....

Come on guys, let's just enjoy it and see what the final version brings us with some none beta drivers as well. it sure is rough but I'm sure they will iron it out with a few patches after release. LOL

It's not my fault you decide to complain about all the little things that don't really matter at all. Beta's are not for people to see if they like the game. It is purely for the devs to test things and find more bugs they might have missed with a much larger user base. That's even been stated by them numerous times...

If you have problems report your bugs in a mature matter to the developers. Not whining like a little baby to people who can't do anything about them on a forum.

I remember how long it took to get bf2 right, this is far more riddled with bugs and i have no doubt in my mind that if 1 map, a rush map at that...has so many bugs then what is the rest of the game going to be like ?

I thank people like roadhog who are willing to pay for a beta and test the game for 3-6 months with the constant patching its gonna get, as i said i might get a copy around easter time......

Yep, Trolling since 2005. lol

Also, you don't even know when the beta was built. Some say its a 3-4week old build, but if you look at most of the file dates they are from 7/31. Either way it's a very old build.

Also, please read: http://www.battlefield.com/battlefield3/1/beta

DOES THIS BETA REPRESENT FINAL GAME QUALITY?

THE BETA IS NOT FINAL SOFTWARE AND UPDATES WILL BE DONE BOTH TO THE GAME AND TO THE BACK-END PRIOR TO THE BATTLEFIELD 3 LAUNCH. YOUR PARTICIPATION WILL STILL HELP US IMPROVE THE FINAL GAME.
