Question How has playing the BETA affected you view on BF3?

Im a huge battlefield fan, put over 250 hours into BC2, but this beta is a mess. I know its "only a beta" but i played the halo 3 beta and the gears of war 3 beta they were no where near this close to release and had about 1% of the problems this beta has. For me personally this is massively disappointing, i've been trying to get my friends off COD and onto Battlefield since BC1. After playing this BETA for a few hours with them all it did was reassure them that MW3 is the way this year not BF3, hugely disappointed. Still hoping the final retail will be a massive improvement but ive had so many flaws and this is just on the 1 small map, wonder how many are in the entire game. If I'm honest its made me contemplate getting BF3, which doesn't make any sense because up until i played the beta i couldn't wait for it, I'd got my pre-order and had arranged the midnight release with friends about a month ago (even booked time off work to have a good session with friends). Im not here to bitch I'm here for a discussion and other people's opinions. I'm just wondering honestly from Battlefield fans and without using the "IT'S ONLY A BETA!" how has this beta affected your purchase? Are you still buying it? Are you on the fence? Has it completely put you off buying it? what are your thoughts? (please don't correct any miss spelling or grammar mistakes)

Well, I think it looks awesome and feels awesome, although I want this:

-fix all the bugs (falling through map, no ADS sometimes, no sprinting sometimes, bullet damage, screen color flickers, etc.) Now I know why the chose that stupid Kanye song for their trailer! =\ 99 problems with bugs! Man, they need to be exterminated by release, and I would be happy.

ALSO, the rockets need more splash damage and better explosion effects, plus Deconstruction 3.0!

I am looking forward to the game, but I do have my worries. Knowing DICE, the game, at release will be spectacular. All we can do is hope I guess. the beta however is very good! albeit the bugs/glitches/server problems :P

The only thing that the BETA has let me down with is graphics, but thats more due to the 360 probably not being able to handle 24 people and Frostbite all at once.

I will get the game and really enjoyed the BETA, but I hope all the bugs are fixed at launch with a patch, but with my previous experience of BF games at launch, the servers are probably gonna fuck up anyway, lol.

I'm still excited for the game, there are so many different rumours floating around - it was a shakey early build they gave us, it had to be dumbed down to reach a suitable file size etc, that I just want to see it now in it's full final form before I pass too much judgment.

NO!
I was playing today and in 2 matches people just get RPGing the fucking MCOMs, made it so hard to plant. I had Flak as my specialisation and was still dying in 1 hit (not direct either). Especially since you get like 6 rockets.

On topic- i havent had that bad of a run with the beta, worse glitches i have had was an abililty to shoot any weapon i had/picked up untill i killed someone... i had to knife someone to get my basic shooting abilities back haha. Both times its happened i have succeeded though. Game should be good with everything polished and fixed- i am hopeful

I'm considering canceling my pre-order. The beta, shit as it is, does give you a good feel how the final game will play. It just so happens that it plays very much like Medal of Honor which I'd go as far to say I hated. It plays more like Medal of Honor than Bad Company, and Medal of Honor is more CoD than Battlefield. I think they should be ashamed that this has been hyped up to be one of the greatest shooters of our time. Unless the final game is drastically different, I can honestly say I'd rather play Modern Warfare 3.

It made me want it even more.
Haven't really encountered all the glitches people complain about.
And it's a beta so some glitches is a given.

I cancelled my pre-order, poor choice for a BF map in my opinion, should have been Caspian border, I still want it, but I am going to wait for reviews and until I talk to some friends who are going to get it anyway.

Yeah I agree with this. It seems that no matter how much shit you blow up on the MCOM it doesn't get damaged. At least in previous BF games either teams explosives near the MCOM did damage to it.

I love the game.

I played every BF game so far and this is a masterpiece.(im not that good with mouse and keyboard so it fits better with the xbox version)

I hated Rush in BF:BC2 so much but now it could be my new favorite mode.

I would say it hasn't affected me at all either way. I was super excited for the game before the beta, and I'm still super excited for the game to come out.

Massively disappointing

I entered the Battlefield series with BC2 & adored it over 250 hours played as well. Its my favorite MP game. i started playing Battlefield 2142 on the pc just because i liked it. I was expecting a game that would rival cod in every way, but tbh its not as good as i expected no where near

- starter guns are pretty rubbish besides for the snipers with no scope.
- the squad system seems to be glitchy for me
- don't like the new menu layout (Not nitpicking its like they've took a step back from BC2's which was simple & easy to operate).
- don't like how i have different guns on each team, i enjoy different kits on different teams, why cant i just use the gun i like
- PRONE!!!!!! me & my rriends praised BC2 for having no prone making it harder for campers, BF3 seems to have added prone i wasnt too fussed but then went & made a map with crap loads of bushes, why
- Spawn zones are not large enough, enemy can camp it & kill you when you spawn

It seems liek a step back from BC2. i still like it & enjoy it but why so many changes, are they for the sake of change or do they genuinly think we all want a prone or to be forced to use rubbish guns to rank up

I've been really enjoying the beta. All of these 'wait and see' people are just going to help me in the long run. I'll be way more advanced by the time they read the good reviews and actually get the game. Plus for me!

Its convinced me to buy it, I wasnt really bothered by it or MW3 as I dont often play fps games but after putting a few hours into the beta I'm gonna pre-order it.
For all the people saying its not this and its not that, you're right, its its own game and you should give it a chance on its own merits, not slag it because its not X.

The beta showed me that there's something huge coming at us in a few weeks already. I'm very excited to see the final product.

To be fair, this is not a sequel to Bad Company 2, rather this is a sequel to Battlefield 2, where they had faction specific weaponry and prone in the game. Also, once you master a weapon you can use it regardless of the faction you are playing as.

Where's the option for...

"Going to wait to see if the real game is any different...hopefully better"

One thing I was wondering...in the real game will that entire map from the beta be available? It makes no sense whatsoever as to where you can and cannot move across the map. I frequently found myself getting the, "Now leaving the battlefield..." message. Seemed to be no rhyme or reason as to the boundaries of the map.

why do people say BF3 is more like MoH than BC2? i mean, i havent played MoH so i have no idea what that's like but i watched some videos of multiplayer gameplay and it doesnt play like the BF3 beta at all? idk maybe if i actually played it ill change my mind but personally i think BF3 is like an exact clone of BC2. same UI/HUD, same level/unlock system (which i didnt really favor), and same gameplay flow/pace.

I was really excited to get this game but I don't know anymore. I guess I'm just used to playing COD but the game play was weird to me. Don't get me wrong the visuals were amazing but the gameplay was completely confusing. I had no idea what the hell I was doing in the beta and sometimes I would get stuck in a glitch. Now I'm just wondering whether or not to get the game, i may even redbox it if possible hahaha

I'd be lying my pissing ass off if I said I wasn't somewhat worried. This beta has a boatload of problems that I know will be addressed by dice, tho. So, I guess it's all good.

I have been a huge fan of the BF franchise, having spent hundreds of hours in BFBC 1 & 2, and BF1943 alone, but after playing the "beta," odds are I won't be purchasing this game. I may be wrong and the game may turn out to be flawless, but it wasn't in their favor to release a broke ass "beta," which in reality should have been called a demo. There are just so many different factors that feel off and I can't fathom spending $60 on the final product if this is the best they could do for the unveiling to the general public. As of a few minutes ago, I am done with this joke of a "beta." I may rent this after it releases, and maybe they'll surprise me and actually live up to their name.

I seriously can't stop playing this beta. I'm addicted. And it's a beta. So obviously, the real game is going to be amazing, and I can't wait. I might even skip buying MW3 on release date to play BF3...depends on how I'm feeling about it at the time.
