Ugh, smattlefield! You keep your teamwork and tactics to yourself! Tactics are for winners!  ;)

What boddiebagger calls losing a gun fight means, killing the opposing team 3 times over and dying once.

No commander and no mods really hurts this game for me :(

3d spotting has been around since 2142. From the footage combat seems more like Medal Of Honor than either BF or BC.

BTW, jets are in for consoles:

Yup ! Phew... glad I didn't scrap my Hori Xbox 360 Flight Stick..  I almost gave up on flight sim games on the 360. ;D

There are a few improvements on the client/server side of things I'm excited about in Bf3.  I read somewhere in a blog over at Ea that you will now have more control of the servers as a client :

*You will able to report players via console with the command : /abuse [username of the player] - [report of the terms of service violation.] (Not sure if you can do this now or not in any of the current Bf games,.)

*Ability to flag  / screenshot / or record a short video clip of a persion explioting or hacking the server and instantly alert server admins via email command from console with it.

*Apply a ping command so you only connect to servers "under that ping amount"...


 Also , I've heard that the consoler version will have "vote-kick" / temp-ban  abilities in their servers. A first for any muliplayer game on the 360 I think.

I've been visiting http://www.bf3alpha.battlefield.com every couple of hours and just got accepted a minute ago. Dice has been telling us we would get an email, I did not but the website finally worked. Downloading now. :) I'll find out soon how well it runs on my 9800 gtx plus. BF Veteran rank 6 by the way.

The birthdate didn't matter for me. I always sign up to websites with a false birthdate, there's no way I could have remembered the actual date used.

Wohoo ! Thanks for the linkie guys.. Got accepted as well. Can't wait to try out my many different level gaming pc's on this thing. I'll post some hardware specs with some some framerate benchmarks with fraps when I get the chance.  - Origin looks like a cheap version of Steam.  ???

Most of that article is fake, the only part that's real is the new wave that came. The article implies that all origin users can download the beta, but it's still being randomly distributed.

Oh and a heads up, nvidia users need the new beta drivers. Anything over 275.39 will work. I also had trouble with freezes and crashing to desktop when my secondary monitor was enabled. If you run into this issue give that a try.
