I still don't have a clue how the squad thingy works in this game? I mean i join the same server as two of my friends and but when i press Esc to look in the option the only option i see under the squad tab is leave a squad or join a squad!

How would i create a squad so that friends can join? Is this even possible in the beta?

Squad management is disabled for the Beta.
You can play on the same server as buddies though currently by using Battlelog, just cant jump into same squad yet.

Yup. plays alot better now, but they disabled terrain destruction. I'm starting to get worried about the framerate in retail when everything is turned back on...

This blog post is the first in a series of posts that will outline some of the changes we are making in the final game thanks to your feedback and participation in the Open Beta.

Come back regularly and stay tuned to the Battlelog forums and the News section in Battlelog for daily news and updates from DICE on how your playing the Open Beta is helping us make the final game better.

A SELECTION OF CHANGES FROM OPEN BETA TO FINAL, PART 1

(Not a complete list – for up to date news, visit the News section in Battlelog)
* Fixed occasional client crash when reviving.
* Fixed killcam showing glitched area under map if your killer is dead.
* Issue with spawning on dead squad mates fixed.
* Fixed a bug where shooting at a moving enemy could cause more than the intended amount of damage.
* Crosshairs for shotguns have been replaced with a new, thinner, art.
* A subtle low health screen effect has been added.
* Tweaked scores of Medals and Service Stars.
* Tweaked the Rank progression.
* Pushing prone on console will not play the animation twice.
* Fixed loss of Squad Leader after EOR at some times.
* Framerate stability fixes.
* The 3D spotting icons has been tweaked to better match the target’s visibility. Icons will show frequently less on mostly obscured targets.
* Fixed issue with crosshair disappearing after round transition.
* Fixed issue with crosshair disappearing after trying to deploy while the countdown timer still active.
* Squad list now shows specializations chosen, VOIP activity and dead squad mates.
* Non working options in squad menu fixed: "Private" flag and "Switch Teams".

That's some very disturbing bugs when you consider the BC2 beta had vehicles and there weren't 'as many' vehicles flying in the air (without the help of mines).

People find disturbing bugs in released games never mind betas. Just look at Crysis and the physics bugs.

You're supposed to find bugs and report them, not tell the whole world how buggy the game is. Some of these bugs can be simple to fix or already fixed in DICE's builds.

There's a difference between flying frogs and flying tanks But I guess that explains why the new map wasn't released universally.

A lot of what you are seeing in the BETA doesn't exist in the main game already. 1st Party submissions mean we couldn't give a version of the latest code in the BETA but the retail game is well ahead of what you are seeing now with a lot more bug fixes already in place.
