Issues so far:

*Lag lag lag ... not one of the servers I played on last evening was smooth.
*CTD when loading the server browser every other time.
*CTD when round is finished, 4 out of 5 times.
*I think the game is way too "light grey"

On the positive side:
*All the controls are pretty much like BF2, the minimap is confusing but will prolly only take some time getting used too.
*Keymapping is great, easier and better than BF2.

i finally got to play it this morning.  performance was good.  graphics are great.  zero lag.  i hope this means they resolved their server problems, but in any case i had no problems whatsoever with crashes or lag.

my initial impressions.  first off, anybody who has been playing MW2 is going to find the game sluggish.  the game tries to recreate what its like to run around on the battle field and for instance you can't turbo strafe.  you can sprint straight ahead but if you want to move sideways you'll do it pretty slowly.  i don't find this a bad thing because i don't want an arcade shooter.  you're not going to see any dolphin diving or bunny hopping in this game.  second, they're big into creating the fog of war sensation.  when you first start playing it can be disorienting and you're not entirely sure what is going on.  third, vehicles are not overpowered.  it takes time to aim your shots with the tank so don't expect cox-style tank whoring to prevail.  fourth, you don't get insta-kills.  its not easy to gun down another player so the idea is if you stick with your squad mates then you'll be able to get the jump on the lonewolves.

i was a little worried after everybody's initial reviews but i think most of the issue was with the technical problems with the servers.  i'm running the game on a two year old rig and had no problems rendering on 1680x1050 resolution so i don't think its a cpu killer.  game play seems fine although it is confusing at first.  we'll see how it goes tonight when the servers fill up again.

Honestly I don't like the game much, looks like fun but firing weapons is such a laggy feeling. Unable to prone makes me wanna puke all over DICE.

Soooo... just coming back from about 7 hours of BFBC2 and I have to say it´s not bad at all.
-The lag issues settled mostly
-sound is awesome
-accurate hitboxes
-well balanced gameplay, weapons and so forth
- and I love that destructible evironment
but as always the most fun came from the teamplay again.
Thanks guys, great as always !

Okay, here's my wishlist (aside from bugs, stability, etc):

1) Prone and toggle crouch.  i appreciate that dolphin diving is one of the downsides of prone but they can fix that by giving a penalty to aim when you first go prone.  not having toggle crouch is silly.  holding down crouch and trying to strafe only really works if you are a native of Chernobyl and were born with six finger on your left hand.
2) Close range combat.  I like the feel of the weapons at medium to long range and appreciate the skill involved but at short range it is pretty weird.  for example, sometimes you can spay a guy with your entire magazine and he won't go down.   i'd like to know that if i can sneak up behind somebody that i can easily take em out without having to empty my gun.  I'd like the knife to be a little faster but i can appreciate why they didn't make it that way...knife kills are pretty rewarding so can't really complain.
3) Smoke grenades that last longer than 3 seconds.  By the time you run to the smoke it has already cleared.
4) Crisper controls.  I find myself getting stuck and having to slow myself down when i'm climbing the stairs on the construction site.  controls don't feel great yet.  I'm not talking about the fact that they are slow but rather that they're not very crisp at times.  I'm sure its a bug but when you're in a tank you can barely move the turret.  if you change your ingame mouse sensitivity to 100 then all of a sudden you can move the turret easily but as soon as you leave the tank your soldier can't aim cause the mouse sensitivity is too high so you need to change ingame mouse sensitivity again.  There's also a bad delay on entering/exiting vehicles that causes many people to either fall off the ATV or crash the UAV cause they press E twice.
5) Instant announcement of kill. For some reason there's a delay in announcing your kill of another player.  This is especially annoying on sniper kills with the M24 cause you can't see the guy die cause you're reloading.
6) Better spotting system as well as ingame orders.  The original system on bf2 was awesome...just need to implement that.
7) Commanders...can't understand why they don't have them.
8) Vehicle survivability.  It is way too easy to stay alive in a tank if you got two people repairing you.  A decent strategy but i've seen it abused in games.
9) Heal over time.  This really takes away from the medic class if people can just hide and regenerate pretty quickly.

Overall i think the game is great although i am pretty sick of that map!

I thought this too but then unlocked the Mortar which gives you an extra option for taking out Vehicles, especially if they are just camping in a spot which makes it very hard to get close enough for attacking them with rockets or c4. Also with the Mortar attacks, even if you don't take out the tank on the first try, it will at least kill the engineers who are fixing the tank from the rear. Then hopefully someone can hit it with a rocket and take it out.

Also I love the fact that you can take out those pesky snipers with a Mortar strike

A quick response.

I think the 'Q' squad command does work, but is really limited. You can basically point at A or B and then press 'Q'. All it seems to do it highlight one of the targets more. But I have yet to hear a voice command saying "Attack/Defend Target"

nah, current pc can't run the beta... can't really afford new pc (not if I plan to eat at least) and now I'm bored of my other fps options: bf2, cod4, mw2....

Oh well, I always was a rts and rpg player more then fps player...

for a free beta, its not too bad. I had to screw the graphics settings down even tho I shouldnt have to. Would be nice if the friends thing worked. It never will in beta according to the dev blog. Loads of shit they wont fix in the beta but they will in the game. They havent time to do both apparently. This is not a team and squad game like bf2. More a run and gun affair. But I still like it. Love the sniper and bullet drop shit.

There is supposedly going to be two game modes in the retail version that will focus on squad teamwork ...

And shotguns are weak as water pistols, need three or four shots to kill someone you can't reach with the knife. But, so said twitter somewhere, the public beta build is about 7 weeks old.

Up to and NOT including...





I havent had ANY problems with the beta Running awesomely smooth except for my gfxcard/CPU lacking a slight bit of raw power for this BETA...
For me, all it needs is some balance tweaking (C4 !!!!) and it's ready for release..
­ Your thoughts, insights, and musings on this matter intrigue me

And how hard can it be to fix the lag problems??I haven't had any lag since the beta was released,but today it's almost impossible to play damn it!
