I cannot, I expect retail to be about the same... if they are disabling the terrain destruction, what makes you think they can fix it in ~26 days and get those updates into the retail version? If they knew it was a problem it shouldve been disabled in the beta from the start... this tells me they are finding bigger issues that they had no idea existed. This really worries me. I haven't bought it yet and at this point I'm not sure I will without giving it some time for them to patch and fix it.

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

What do you think a beta is for?

I think the industry should go back to the way it was, and only allow testers to be in betas, and then maybe the spoiled, "why are their bugs in beta!" crowd can go back to waiting until the game is released for a demo.

Not sure I blame them. I can't even imagine how broken the final game will be. Remember BC2? Beta worked better than the final release. That combined with a GARBAGE web browser for server browser make this terrible.

Started playing about 10 minutes ago.

I like the graphics and it seems it can be a great game. Beta though. Am excited for the "final" release version.

One thing I can't stand is the browser. WTF is this ****? Origin sucks.

Didn't you hear? The browser is SMART because in game web browsers might not work with all systems. DUH!

I prefer an in game browser to battlelog too, but this being a beta - it doesn't necessarily mean there isn't going to be an in game server browser at all. Just means its not in the beta. Til the full version ships you dont know how it's going to be.

Why i dislike BF3 so far...
Lag
glitches
regless
spawn killers
team killers (running people over in jeeps as they wait for plane sigh)
glitchy sound
Visuals aren't THAT good
mouse performance is terrible (input lag)
annoying 1 hit shots from a smg hitting me from what seems like 10 miles across a map and killing me, so far the guns are way unbalanced.....
Strangely enough, ive never really noticed any of those issues you mentioned apart from the occasional white flashes and glitches in the animation and terrain. Lag can be terrible at times but for the most part my connection is fine. The first kill i scored in this game was a team kill and also scored another 2 more in the same match by accident. I also got TK'ed once. Sure its annoying, but hey there's an option to turn it off.
Ive only been spawn killed twice so far, one of them being a cheap kill from the back, the other because i spawned at a teammate who was arming a MCOM and had 2 enemies already starring at us the second i spawned. Honestly i think BF's respawning is way better than COD where its possible to spawn with an enemy positioned in clear view.

After playing for a couple of days now...I love this game, way better than BC2. After all of the minor bugs are sorted, should be a TIPTOP game.
