Just somewhere to post your findings on this game.

First things first I know this is a beta and will have problems, but I didn't realise the problems would be so great that my opinion on the game would so drastically change.

I'm un-installing the beta and cancelling my order.

My first experience:

I started the beta, tried to paste the code in... can't do that. So I wrote the code down, went back in... "logged out due to inactivity" .. ok, log in, enter the code. Click on brose servers... *Desktop*. Fantastic.

Start the game again, log in.. "Updating Account Data" (it does that every time even when nothing has changed and takes a bit too long).

So, I click the quick join button and got in a server very quickly. Graphics looks pretty darn cool and the sounds was awesome.

I ran up to a vehicle, and then I ran up there again because I got lagged back 20ft.

I couldn't enter it so I ran down into the battlefield and hid behind a wall, an enemy soldier ran past and I emptied my entire clip into his back, normally I would stop firing because in most games they would be on the floor dead but nope, right down to an empty clip and he turns around and kills me in a couple of shots.

RAGE QUIT!

So they patch it and me and Trikz tried to join the same server... Friend system doesn't work, we couldn't see the same servers and the server list took way too long to update.

So I tried it again just now, join the defenders and when I spawned... I couldn't move.

So first thoughts would be ... some idiot put the spawn point in the floor or I spawned in someone... well people were spawning inside me and they could move. NO buttons on my keyboard would work (thank you patch?).

I could move my mouse but that wasn't enough. The server kicked me after a couple of minutes and I finally regained control in the menu.

I'm very much tempted to cancel my pre-order now and get AVP instead but people keep saying great things about the game in between the "wtf lag" comments... is it that good that I should hang in there?

wow.
i've been hitting some pretty good servers. Some aren't then I leave.
The first day of release, I couldn't play it was so bad, but it's been getting better and better.

I'm enjoying the game when there is little to no lag. I know I'll enjoy it more when they fix the friends list and I can play on a squad with mates I know.

I did something like pressed W and Tab at the same time and couldn't move, escape.. nothing. close out.

Is it that good? I've been with the series for a while and I know that I've had some GREAT times with it. I expect this to do the same and hopefully it will once it's out of beta. I'm am sticking with it

Are you recommending games again foyle? hehe

So far for me it's got worse on the two occasions I've got into a server. I hear a lot of people have problems like pressing the wrong button and it sticking etc

After each attempt at playing the BBC2 beta I've been playing the old MOH games and they relieve the frustration some what... but AVP is right around the corner and promises Co-op.

I will test BBC2 a day or two before AVPs release and if it still isn't up to scratch I will have to cancel.

I really hope it gets better as I think a lot of people will be playing this on my friends list but online adversarial has never been my number 1 favourite.

I am massively disappointed with this game so far. I understand that this is a beta that's meant to help find errors and problems but this is ridiculous.

I've tried about 15 different servers now with over half being UK based ones and it’s all the same. There is a constant connection lag while playing. I've even tried playing with the graphics settings down as low as it will go and it still there. It's now so bad that it renders the game completely unplayable.

They reset the servers yesterday and I managed to play for 30 mins or so and it was awesome. I blew up some tanks, killed quite a few people, blew up some buildings, Defended a capture point...it was great.

Then the lag came back and now it's completely unplayable again. Interesting that both techno and trikz are having the same lag issues as me, where as foyle and stryder are not. I wonder if it’s something to do with us all being in the UK?

That is odd; perhaps there forwading you to an American server? Also I'm sure a lot of lag will go down as a lot of people settle down with the playing of it. I'm excited to get the actual game; but for now, I can't play until the new shiny GPU comes in.

Very disappointed in this so far.

Hit about 5 different servers and once in them it would seem that people are more concerned about chatting online and spewing verbal diarrhea then they were about actually playing the game. Not sure if there were mute buttons or not but regardless this should be a feature on the main menu. ie: Click here to mute Verbal Diarrhea

For some reason the game starts in Windows mode and heaven forbid that I try to click past that as it crashes the game so I wait patiently for it to pass the over abundance of intros (My idea of overabundance is more then 1 intro that lasts more then 2 seconds - and that's pushing it) I know that EA will end up having about 10 more before you even get into the game. I have faith in them to do this - Honest I do ! It is EA afterall.

Takes to long to updates player stats and then takes a long time to update the servers that you can't sort. We all know that the friends system isn't working so I won't mention that although I would be more inclined to play more if I could find some people I know to play with - that sounds kind of like I don't have friends...

I thought so far that the aiming bites butt it would seem that no matter how long I stayed put to let the breathing relax I still couldn't hit anything - got the feeling that playing with melted marshmellows would be easlier - which brings up one more thing, where they hell did they get the idea for Iron Sights that take up so much of the screen... talk about huge. If I had to use something like that the first person I would shoot (or try to shoot in this case) would be the guy that thought that's what they looked like. Once in the sight picture and shooting the lag picks up and should a vehicle go by... well lets not go there shall we.

I think they should change the team Identifiers as I find it hard to distinguish between who is who. I know in time it will get sorted out through play but as it stands now... I pretty much have to wait for someone to shoot at me and man let me tell you they do.

You can't change direction while running and to someone that can't hit anything that means a lot. :P

I'll wait a few more days/weeks/months for patches to see improvements - BaH !! Maybe never, as it's just another Battlefield game but with better looking graphics. However I can see that this might be a good Console game.

To be honest I can't stand games that come out strictly for Multiplayer that will cost the same or more for a game that comes out with both. EA go figure.

Cheers

so far...heres my 2 cents...

i have never been a fan of elitist gaming - where weapons DO get better as you go along and increase in ranks...

i have played with and without lag...and ya - its far easier without the damned lag

i managed to get welshy into my friends list...(DONT ASK ME HOW!?!?) and joined him for a little run around, however it definitely did not show him as online, even though he was...

the ability to have attackers spawn in the defenders territory is quite unbalanced/unfair, especially since as a defender you cannot even begin to approach the attackers spawn point

spawning w/o parachute is annoying...happens every now and then, and general rank whores and morons who dont really want to play as a team - rather attempt to destroy every bit of landscape rather than playing the damned objectives (in essence leaving their team out to hang is messed) or screwing the team by having everyone soawn as a sniper then they cant figure out why we lost...DUH!

dunno - it IS EA and it is a BETA...hopefully they fix the glitchy parts - don't think they can fix that it is EA

Im a massive Battlefield fan owned everyone apart from the one that sucked (2142, Demo didnt interest me) and i have to say im loving this game to bits i cant wait to get it.

The sound effects are what make the game amazing to me such as firing your sniper rifle then hearing the supersonic crack a split second after or hearing rockets flying overhead and more.

The weapons could do with a bit of a balance but its only minor.

Vehicles are really good in this game i find. If you and a mate both go engineer and get a T90 and repair when your shot you can roll teams with one tank i completed a map with my mate in a tank from the start without dieing we worked so well together. But saying that if your facing a tank team using this tactic there are simple ways to stop this from happening such as mining the road, static AT, mortars, C4 etc etc.

As far as teamwork goes (in public it doesnt exist obviously, or very very very very very rarley) but if you and your mates are on vent/ts/skype using class kits that compliment and help each other then get ready to flicking roll some people.

Overall 8/10 for the beta loving it and i really cant wait for the game to come out!!

P.S Helicopters feel perfect now!! the assistant gunner is funnnnnn :)

I've played this Beta a little... I'm level 5. What can I say ?

Good: It is fun, although not everyone plays for the team. It has a great feeling to it, it's like you really are on a battlefield.
Great SFX and GFX (though, bloom is exaggerated - I turned it off).
Sniping is pretty good (well, maybe except the HUD FX); I like the fact that bullets are affected by gravity.
There are a lot of weapons... even from WW2 (which are probably borrowed from BF1943 project).

Bad: The server browser takes a long time to refresh, filter servers doesn't work all the time.
PB kicks me, telling me to update it, but can't since it's not on the list in the manual update program.
Unlike CoD4, for example, low rank players will get pwned a lot because of the inferior equipment.
There should be a ping meter...
You can't leave the match after the round has ended; you have to wait for the next round to load


I didn't have any major problems with lag (but I started playing a few days ago, maybe they fixed it before that). I'm from Romania, and I'm playing mostly on German servers.
