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.....

Why is everyone enjoying this beta? Is it just me that hates what the Dice team have done ?

Had to come off bf3 beta and have a quick game of cod4 just to remind me how an FPS game should play...yes i did just say that because behind all the glorious visuals that some say they have seen in bf3 the actual gameplay as far as fps games go isnt that good.

Im with you.. I think people just want to hate MW3 and this is the only other option. Lots of undeserved love for this game.

Odd, I've played for about 10 hours so far and seen nothing you mention...

-If you have Lag go to a different server. I've played on many servers that have been flawless besides the occasional crash.
-Glitches? Its a beta.
-Spawn Killers? Stop sucking
-Team Killers? Just douches, go to a different server, you will find this in any game. lol
-Sound is flawless here...
-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.
-Mouse laggy? Turn off HBAO and VSYNC. Same problem with BC2.

Most of what you complain about is user error. lol

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.

I think because at the end of the day, it is a unique gaming experience. Probably feels more like a COD than BC2. It is VERY hard to transition from BC2 into this though. Countless matches I have led the team in deaths... The amount of shots it takes to bring you down in BC2 gives you a certain freedom, so for example you know that you can run across some doorway even if you get hit. Here there is no such thing.

You can't play this game like BC2 or you will fail horribly. It's not the same game, if it was the same game it would be called BC2. There is no run and gun in this game. Run and gun gets you killed instantly. It's all about using teamwork, cover, and any other strategic tactics to beat your enemy.

It's because this is a real battlefield game. Not every gun is hyper accurate and you can't take 10 bullets and still run up and knife someone. MUCH better than bfbc2

I tried this with my two 460 768s in SLI (that new driver's a bit wonky in its implementation/switching on/off of SLI, have you noticed that?)... and tried 19x10 16xAF Ultra Detail, 4x MSAA set to "enhance application setting" and also set that to the same in the game control panel... kept HBAO on (does anyone have any screenies of HBAO vs SSAO vs OFF?) ... and even with my 1090t @ 4ghz, and 8gb DDR3, and a new install of Win7 the game was running like dog crap. Dips into single digits using FRAPS. Tried Medium Detail with SSAO instead of HBAO, and didn't get much better of results.

So now I'll pop in two GTX 560 1gb cards and see how much better they do, both at stock frequencies (one's a stock reference speed, the other is a SuperClocked that for whatever reason won't run right at the lowered reference frequencies), and overclocked healthily.

I remember the 2x 560s wiping the floor with the 460 768 in Metro 2033 Ultra Detail; I'm kinda thinking this might just be a replay of that scenario.

It plays more like MOH meets COD. Ambient Occlusion causes some input lag, disable it.
