The main problem with the Battlefield 3 beta the one that's out right this moment is that it doesn't play like Battlefield 3 does now, how I assume the final game will play.

There are major gameplay balance differences between the two. Weapons feel different, with different fire rates and recoil. And the damage model has been radically shifted. Death comes quickly in the beta, situated more towards Call of Duty's durability, or even last year's DICE-developed Medal of Honor multiplayer. Firefights in the beta prioritize reflexes over tactics, which is a departure from Bad Company 2.

This is not the case with Battlefield 3 as it is now. The version of Battlefield 3 that I spent hours playing last week has weapons and damage that feel like Battlefield Bad Company 2. This, if you aren't sure, is a good thing. It changes the dynamics of firefights, allowing for each side to take and hold positions, and making flanking and tactical coordination much more viable. The increased player survivability also make vehicles in Battlefield 3 more fair than they would be with the beta's damage models.
Sounds good to me. It is more like a Battlefield game that way. The beta was not like a Battlefield game at all.

There's been a few sources saying that the damage from the beta has been lowered significantly. Is this true?

I ditched my Origin order and jumped all over this. From what I've read it is more than likely an Origin key.

In the end they are all origin keys.....

Retail, digital... all require origin.

A lot of hosts already use per slot fees for calculating their costs. The only thing that this might change is for the people who are renting a whole server they have access to and were planning on running as many instances as they could pack into the allotments.

So you can either pay $1.50 a slot for as many slots as you want, or you'll pay $100+ a mo with say a .25 cent per slot fee. It might cost a bit more overall, but I'm guessing it won't be a big deal. If it really is an EA "billing" thing then your VPS could always cut you a discount for running BF3 on a dedicated server and change how the billing is stated. So if a server was going to cost you $150, the sell it to you for $150 with a $50 BF3 discount, and then you pay $50 worth of BF3 slots.
