had the worst glitch today. Was stuck beneath the ground. had to commit suicide to get out of it. So many glitches. But its not bad. They are very stupid for releasing a sh*tty demo that they know some people will not like....

you have to strategically put them somewhere, not just out in plain view for someone to notice everyone is spawning from same position

well i've gave it several tries until early this morning and cannot get into it like the COD series
i'd compare it too how ppl feel about Black Ops.
i don't understand why they would release the beta as an old build cuz a lot of my buddies said fu*k this game and are going to COD after i persuaded them to get this sh*t when it comes out
they are gonna lose buyers over this
i think im going to get both MW3 and BF3 cuz i can always trade it if need be
word I fell into the hype too

all of my homies suck off cod for breakfast. And all of the trailers and all the hype had me filling their heads with thoughts that this might actually blow mw3 out the water but helllllss na

Im really looking forward to the campaign especially because of the 4player co-op, but the mp in bf games arent for me


the last mp in a bf game I enjoyed was the arcade game that came out a couple years back on xbl I think it was called battlefield 1942 or someshyt. I was actually addicted to that game at one point

Troll what? Everything I said is what is wrong with the BETA and a lot of people are having the same problem.

I think you should stick to your basement beats, bruh.
n*gga so mad he tryna get personal.




Whats so funny is I just proved you wrong with all the bullsh*t you said about dev's/DICE not clearly stating it was all scaled back and missing alot....I put up the twitter of one of the LEADS on the game where he has over 4 days worth of tweets this week alone saying they intentionally put out a scaled back, broken down build for the sake of stress testing...

And in the light of getting proved wrong you tried to get personal.....n*gga you mad...Youre reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally mad. And ....SO its funny as fu*k


Just gonna add this pic cause I been laughing at it for the past hour

Can some1 explain to me the use of releasing a beta that's months old? Why not release the most updated one so we can see and fix CURRENT BUGS AND GLITCHES... I'm not buying the whole dice having to release a dumb down version for the beta. I can't recall in recent history when I played a beta and it was drastically different from the finish version, especially a month out from being in stores. As of now this game is whack. Hopefully I will be able to retract that statement when its actually released but for now its a disappointment

They are fixing current bugs and glitches. Theyre testing out server strength and stability....Thats it. If you wanna see new builds go look at the videos on battlefield3.com.....The vids showing gameplay on consoles and PC are all way ahead of this.

So you are helping with bugs and glitches....Keep playing, or if you dnt like it then just delete it....I mean it is a free beta lol

I have never seen so much d!ck riding from people supporting BF 3 wow, why can't you just admit they dropped the ball by releasing the beta that they ended up releasing. Just take a look at the videos they show on TV and in trailers they are trying to showcase graphics. They are using the PC graphics for all their hype videos, 360 and PS3 graphics wont be great but lets hope the game play is a lot more polished. The beta is a joke and save the DICE said they dumbed down the demo on purpose and it doesn't use Frostbite 2.0 if it didn't use it why would it say "powered by frostbite 2.0" at the beg of the game?

The game comes out in 3 weeks why would they let us beta test something that feels like an alpha build and not a beta, this game doesn't feel polished at all, the matchmaking has big issues, the glitches are ridiculous, the game play is nothing like BF2 its really disappointing.

I have a feeling BF 3 will be a huge console flop but on the flip side be a great PC game if you have the monster rig to run it.

Whose d!ck riding bf3 tho....I myself and quite a few other "BF 3 supporters" in this thread have clearly said were all getting both games....I think the COD kids want it to be a "this vs that" argument and its not happening. Make it clear, im gettin both games......lol

But this looks like alot of betas I've seen before...I was apart of the matrix online mmo beta....It was so rugged that alot of the buildings looked like lumps of clay and were literally uploaded into the game as the days went on. Even then the company designing the game said they werent beta testing graphics(Beta Tests are never for graphics) but for stability.

The people who actually are making bf 3 have said time and time again....They've shown more complete builds on PS3 and Xbox 360 and they look much better than anything going on in the beta..Why is that so hard to believe?


They didnt give you a DEMO....They gave you a BETA....I know being a console gamer youre used to "Betas" meaning you get a complete representation of the retail games online component but that isnt the case with most betas.



And lets be real with the graphics they've showcased in the videos of BF3 gameplay....If they released this beta with the same build 10 months ago you'd all still be flaming it....So stop frontin.


If you like it, play it, if you dont, then dont.

"A lot of what you are seeing in the BETA doesn't exist in the main game already. 1st Party submissions mean we couldn't give a version of the latest code in the BETA but the retail game is well ahead of what you are seeing now with a lot more bug fixes already in place."

No Matter what you try and explain...................They still wont accept it.

You put up a direct quote from the DICE Community manager....I put up the twitter accounts of the n*ggas who are actually sitting there building the game street by street, gun by gun, map by map, and these n*ggas ignore it.

F*ck It I say. cant wait for Tuesday....Rage and NBA 2k12 and then 2 weeks later BF3, then another 2 weeks after that for COD MW3...and batman to

I get that and you all make fair points but still I really don't get why they would release a Beta this bad.......

it doesn't make sense and the fact that its an open beta that can be downloaded via XBL like a demo is just going to create negative publicity for the game, 3 weeks before the game comes out and this is the game play that the public gets? Its is a beta full of bugs and countless issues which should probably be an alpha instead of a beta.

They are trying to make people buy BF 3 over MW3 thats been the aim since day 1 of the announcement and to me releasing a beta this bad doesn't help they would have been better off with a closed beta for die hard fans and letting the hype sway the casual gamers with no beta or demo because there is more cons in this beta than pros.

Its EA tho so I am not surprised

The general population who DL's and plays this beta and doesn't realize it's an old a.ss build won't end up purchasing the game if they don't like it.
I can honestly say I hope that's the case. I've had MAYBE 1-2 squads who actually go for the objective with me. I've literally never won an attackers round because my team sits back with fu*king SVU's and plays like we're in COD S&D or something...then I got the other team floor glitching and laying under the fu*king MCOMM stations k!lling me as soon as I walk over, seems to me like they aren't your average BF players if you know what I mean. And god damn I can't believe I'm seeing level 47's and sh*t

the beta has nothing to do with advertising the game it's not a demo

this is a server stress test...nothing else

fu*k it stick to COD please
Its in the XBL menu as a "Battlefield 3 Beta" and its listed under demos on new games

it says nothing about it being a server stress test at all, so how is an average casual gamer someone who doesn't follow DICE forums or their twitter or whatever supposed to know this and know that this isn't intended to show off their product? Like it or not their product is on display and its not displayed in a good light.

For someone on the fence about the BF3 it could really have a negative impact.

also i read from a few developer releases saying that they release demos this way to also keep the file size smaller and more "user friendly" for downloading purposes
