I enjoyed it heaps , we have till the 10th Oct till they pull the BETA servers down for all platforms.

The one thing I hated was the disconnected issue which really iratates me .

I,m guess the new scoring would be 50 pts instead of 200 for a RUSH map finish , 200 - 250 for the win ?

50 pts for a kill
/?

Well after a couple of evenings play I like it.

Should be a top game when released!




The little things make the biggest difference.

i didnt like the beta and if they dont change things i probably wont get it.
the recoil is WAY to high.....
the menu sucks plain and simple ive died so many times trying to change settings....
revive sucks... i want revive from bc2, i dont want to crouch to be able to revive someone..

when i played metro there were support and snipers camping corners or door entrances and with no flash bangs and the inability to break those walls completely ruined it for me.

You saying you want extremely long arms so you dont have to crouch in reviving someone !.. ??? Go jump!

Much more realistic to crouch  !!

I think the recoil is reasonable. Try to unlock gun accessories, things like foregrip and suppressor can significantly reduce it. Also try to use guns with low recoils, but of course they do less damage.

The retarded menu thing is for beta only, EA said it won't be like that in the final game.

Every online shooter has its fair share of campers. You just need to know the map, carefully manage high risk corners like a real soldier, rather than run pass them like a football striker. Plus in this game campers never get high scores, so to me it's pretty fair.

As for the destructible environment, it's mostly disabled in this beta build, according to EA.

Installed the beta a few days ago and playing it every chance I get. This beta sealed it, back to online shooters for me, great game.

Ended up screwing around the last few games, mostly involving camping the antenna and "TKing" teammates at deployment with jeeps and annoying anyone in jets, good fun
