Hello everyone! It's been a while since I've been on here. It's good to be back!
Lets cut to the chase, Is it just me or Battlefield 3 was a huge let down! I mean, I've had HIGH expectations for this game and after playing the game for 10 mins, I couldnt help to but feel like it's incomplete.
The games glitchy like theres no tomorrow, texture popins are everywhere, ive fallen through the ground countless of times and havent been able to get out! Sometimes the "hitmarkers"dont appear and the biggest disappointment of all are the graphics.
I mean, the game was advertised for it's destructable enviroments (more enhanced with Frostbite 2) and graphics, But none of these were apparent here.
I'm still enjoying the game though! I just hope they fix these problems before the game comes out.
I'm still a Battlefield Player all the way!
Modern warfare 3 is out of the question!

I quite enjoyed it, but how that floor problem has made it beyond alpha, never mind into a public beta, is beyond me. It's terrible...
But other than that I thought it was pretty good. It's not a very Battlefield map (are there even any vehicles?), but I think they chose that to show they could compete with CoD on it's own terms...

"I quite enjoyed it, but how that floor problem has made it beyond alpha, never mind into a public beta, is beyond me. It's terrible..."
That problem wasn't in the alpha. I cancelled my pre order because if all they've managed to do since July is make it worse, whats the chances they'll have it fixed in 3 weeks!?

I would say that it has been a let down for me, because like many others they choose a poor map for the beta, the graphics apart from the floor issue and odd screen tearing when in the train station section of Metro Operation was good, the game felt like it had become a prone-fest and why have the kill cams not changed since BFBC2? I am pretty sure that was one of the many requests that people asked dice to either remove or make more like call of duty. I sincerely hope that what dice are claiming that the beta we are playing is an old build and many issues have been fixed is true, because I remember Crytek saying that about crysis 2 and issues remained and still do to this day although the graphics were "better" than the beta.

I honestly think DICE have shot themselves in the foot with the BF3 release, the PS3 is thee worst version of them all, how the hell can they release a Beta when you literally disappear through the map, practically everytime you go prone. The hit detection can get bias at times, ande why release a map that has no vehicles...MoH anyone....
imo graphically it does look slightly better than the 360 version.
Dice where on to a sure fire hit with this title, now they might have put people off with such a poor beta.
what were they thinking.

From DICE (which i'm guessing is because they're sick of people missing the whole point of the beta):
Battlefield 3 Open Beta Update #2
BY: seeson POSTED: Oct 03, 2011, 05:54PM COMMENTS: 28
Thank you for playing the Open Beta and making the final game better!
We are very excited to see so many gamers join our Battlefield 3 Open Beta. Here’s an update on the Open Beta from DICE General Manager Karl Magnus Troedsson.
I want to give you an overview of how the Open Beta is helping us shape a fantastic final game, what we are implementing based on your feedback, and how the Open Beta will help us deliver a robust gaming environment from day one.
The Open Beta is a true Beta
The Battlefield 3 Open Beta is based on software that is more than one month old. We need to test the new back end dedicated server structure we’ve built. Not only have we built a new game engine, but an entirely new back end system so that everyone can enjoy the benefits of dedicated servers on all platforms.
Just like normal procedure when releasing a game, the Open Beta has had long lead times due to testing, certification, and setting up. This means that the code you are now playing is actually quite early and not representative of the final game.
We had to do this in order to have as many people testing as possible, in order to ensure a top quality experience when the game is released. However, we’re confident in the Battlefield formula and confident that our fans will support us in order to make Battlefield 3 better.
Dedicated servers require dedicated testing
The biggest reason for running the Open Beta is to stress test our servers and back end. Already, we are seeing 6 times the number of simultaneous players in the Battlefield 3 Open Beta compared to the Beta for Battlefield: Bad Company 2! The fact that Battlefield 3 is clearly our biggest game launch ever by a magnitude of 6 makes it doubly important to test everything.
We are constantly updating the News section on Battlelog with information on what we are fixing from Open Beta to final. We appreciate your time and your feedback. The data and feedback from the Open Beta will not only directly affect the final game of Battlefield 3, but its future development and support.
We’re heading out on the road this week to let journalists experience all aspects of Battlefield 3. Stay tuned for their previews, and stay tuned for the final game on October 25th. The final game will look, play and sound better than the Open Beta. You have helped making sure of that.

the beta was excellent as its there for people to try it out
i think most people hate the beta because they think its the full game for example there are people with rank 25 and over and when the beta goes in a few days there rank means bugger all lol
