BF4 Beta Roll Call

So who here is playing in the BF4 beta?  The closed beta starts on Oct 1st and the open beta on Oct 4th.  If you have BF3 premium, you will have access to the closed beta.  

It would be nice to at least get a 5 man squad togehther one night.

Do I need to pre-purchase the game in order to play the open beta?

Nope.   Anyone can play.   If you have BF3 premium, you can play in the closed.

 I'm still undecided whether I'm going to pick up the deluxe or regular edition. Do you think the deluxe version is worth it?

It's kind of a toss up really.  The deluxe will get you the early access to the beta if you don't qualify but it is only 3 days before the open beta.  It also gives you a shortcut bundle for vehicles giving you all vehicle unlocks from the start.  Personally, I hate that this is offered because it gives an advantage.   You also get 3 gold battlepacks and all I know about is is that it gives you some additional camo, dog tags, gun attachments and XP Boost.  

I did get the deluxe myself since it is only $10 more and I would say it is probably worth it.

I went ahead and picked up the deluxe edition. Like you said, for $10 more it may be worth it.

So laggy right now it's unplayable for me.  On a server with a ping of 10.  I'll try again later tonight.

I played this morning with minimal problems but I am sure there was a lighter load then.  I will be on tonight, barring it is not being unplayable.

I've got it but only ran around an empty server to see the map. Looks good. So much so, I am not going to bother with a 360 copy as it will suck with only a handful of players on maps like the one in the beta.

Just a few quick thoughts on the beta....

 

Really buggy, there are times when  the entire server is unable to respawn,

It is easier to shoot down helicopters. I can actually do it in this game.

Jumping off a skyscraper as it collapses, priceless.

The spawning system is better than in 3.

Overall, I'm really enjoying it.

I have experienced the spawn screen dissapearance thing twice so far.  It happened again in a game last night and when I hit the escape key and then clicked on resume, there it was.  I had to do that for the remainder of the game.   

There are still some lag spikes and major drops in FPS during the games.  

There is a funny bug where the boat spawns on land and even the rooftops of buildings.  You gotta love betas... especially battlefield betas.  

I love the map and really enjoying the gameplay so far.

Crap. The beta needs a lot of work. I had major issues connecting to and remaining in servers. Very frustrating.

When the beta came out, Dice said they were already 2 or 3 versions past it. They did do some updates about half way through to the PC beta I believe.

Our numbers seemed to have dropped in the last month or so.

Except T3m., have most of you given up, or are you just busy with other stuff. ?

* cough cardiac wolf* *cough RUST *

I've been travelling a bit and dabbling in Blacklight Retribution, but will be back on more in the next month. It would be nice to get the band back together. smiley

I had back to back work deadlines that kept me from playing this past month.  I should be on more now though.

I think T3 has maxed his rank twice over by now.  

I have not been playing much but I am not quitting it entirely and I admit that Rust has been eating up a lot of my gaming time.  I will see you around on there soon though.

I had a stretch with little gaming time available. Since then, I have been playing it almost exclusively on the One.

I'm slowly coming back to BF4.  I was just too busy in Jan to play and it looks like DICE made some significant improvements with the big patch in Feb.  I'm on the fence for Titanfall (unless I can find it cheap for like $40).

I have no system.

We leave Canada in two weeks,so I sold the PC i had here. 

I'll be back on when i get to england but doubt our time differences will see us squadding up much :0(.

I agree about Titanfall. I was excited, but it now looks expensively underwhelming to me.

With the money invested in BF4 I think that will be the game for my forseeable future.

Hell, by the time the Canadian government give me my citizenship & I'm back, we'll have a different, overhyped EA disaster to play :0)

We will have to catch up with you on a weekend afternoon with you to play Battlefield Scratchski.  I take it you will be building/buying a new PC once you get back to England?   

Good luck with the move and let us know when you have a rig that is operational.

I still have my super PC that got left in the UK :0)

I couldn't ship it to Canada this time, so bought a lesser rig out here. Looking forward to firing her back up & will definitely get some games with you guys when i can.

It is certainly nice to have a Super PC to fall back on.  :)

If you want to try and schedule a Saturday or Sunday afternoon one day, evening or night your time, let us know and I should be able to come online as scheduled.

Welcome home scratchski.

Its only taken FOUR days to download the game on my mum's rural internet connection.

FOUR days, and I still haven't got the map packs dl'ed.

Looks like I might be on Titanfall just because I can install it from the disc lol.

Anyway, if you see me on the vanilla game, lets squad up. For the moment there don't seem to be any problems with my GTX 680 64GB ram, six core i7 system. cool

My 43 year old eyes, reflexes and beer addiction however are not quite so good cheeky

How's your connectivity in game? 

If I see you online, I have no problem with trying a Euro Server.  I think I can connect there with around a 100 ping, which isn't horrible.

Here's the irony Cardiac - with about 2 meg down and just less than one up, its only 15 ping on speed tests, so not bad.

I'll be moving on soon, but I think I'll try and hook my folks up with a better deal on their internet before I do laugh
