Honestly, I was and still am hyped for this game..maybe I was one of the minority who were hyped and actually played BC2?
I'll admit first time I played BC2 I didn't like it, I was brainwashed into the game style of COD, run and gun win the game by myself type sh*t. After playing COD more and more, playing objectively while no one else did. Playing demolition with people who prefer to spawn camp than win, or be on the opposite end being spawn camped.. I prefer to win, I would always use Spy Plane, Counter and Blackbird..I try to help the team win..not run 8,9,11 k!llstreaks. My kd was 2.2 because I cared more about winning than k!lls, I don't find the fun in only caring about k!lls and ignoring the fact my team just lost.
So I went back to BC2 and was so appreciative how the game was built for people with my mindset, only played COD when friends were on that game only. But then the hype came for BF3 and I couldn't wait..saw trailers for the next COD and it looks like a rehashed MW2. Which I returned because I hate so much. I'll cop, because I understand COD isn't a game for team players, it's an arcade shooter for getting k!lls and running around. I'll prob only play that when friends are only on that though
The ones that are hyped for this game are the few who have played 1942, BF2, 2142, Bad Company Series, etc. The ones who have played those games know what to expect from Dice, everyone else, who is trying to find a new shooter after playing COD can't adapt to the change, maybe some can, but looks like more complainers then people actually liking it. And with people complaining about a beta, its a beta, MW2 came out like it was still in a beta. This BF3 beta is at least a month old and the whole point of it is to fix bugs for release and more importantly, figure out how the stress would be on their servers.
