    Just got my ZR30W last night, and downloading the beta @ 4.4 MB/s. Too bad I've gotta go to Quantitative Analysis first :(

    So you're not exactly a starving student, then?

    Guess your avatar was the first clue. :p

    it never even puts me in, just gets stuck "connecting" and always to the same POS server (ping over 250).

    This is insane. The amount of time waiting to join a game. This is by far the dumbest idea ever.

    Yeah, I experienced that as well. I ended up just selecting a server with low ping, and I've been waiting for 20 minutes in this queue for a total of 40 minutes messing with others.

    Edit: Been sitting at 7th in queue for about 10 minutes. As much as I hate the idea, they need to cap you at time in game, say two rounds, because otherwise people won't leave the server.

    so joining servers is the issue?

    What is your in game name? your origin name?

    I guessing EA have a very limited amount of servers up if everyone is having to que for a game???

    If this is just the closed beta. Just think how bad it will be when it comes to the open beta :p

    Yeah, limited number. Someone said 100 servers total earlier in thread, and I can confirm that it's correct.

    I'm disappointed that the map is again Metro.

    Edit: The way this wait is going, I might be in by the time the beta is fully opened :p At least I can pick up my FIFA 12 pre-order today!

    Jesus Christ it's just the beta but they so manage to fuck up every release. This does not bode well. At least I know it's really a Battlefield game.

    Time to go work out. Maybe I'll be in game by the time I get back in an hour and a half. :roll:

    i haven't had problems getting in servers, got in 3 different ones waiting less than 30 seconds each.

    but once i'm in i lag like hell. not even reasonable, like every button press causes 3s lag.

    i also see no difference between low and ultra settings. maybe it's just me but i don't think they do anything.

    Yeah I am in the same boat, except I can't even download until I get home.:cry:

    Hum maybe I won't celebrate my 6870 until I find out if Ultra is just running at a lower default setting instead of actually being Ultra. How does it look ?

    That I really don't understand. Didn't get in one single match after 40 minutes.

    If the game play is as poor as you say it is, it might not be worth even giving it a shot at this point.

    LOL looks like they ignored the peoples petition on EA forums to change the map to Caspian Border.

    ------

    I dont think im gonna bother with the open beta if i have time to smoke a pipe, have a 3 course meal and a sherry and still not enter the game.

    I'll wait until the games release which isnt long

    I got in and played 2 rounds. One set of dog tags, a dozen or so pistol kills. The game has a tendency to crash every 20 minutes or so. And crashed points are not instantly added to you stats.

    Any questions?

    After playing a bit, here's my thoughts. Battlelog could be good, but it doesn't auto add your Origin friends. And it has it's own chat box, so which to use, just seems confusing. I can't manually join servers, and all the servers it quick connects me to are in Australia... And Rush just blows. The 1st set of flags are fine, we armed those and I was 8/4, then we moved to the 2nd set of flags, I went up to 8/11 before I finally got my next kill. I dislike the subway, just a sniper fest and arming the crates they have almost 0 cover, and a ton of good spots for the defends to sit and camp and watch from. It seems right now, it might be impossible to win as an Attacker, right when my team hit the 2nd set of flags, numerous people just left, and it doesn't auto balance.

    I think the server me and highway were on went down, or they kicked people to make room for others. Either way I'm going to take a break and slam my head into the wall for a bit, will be more fun than playing Rush.

    I would understand if they had any representatives. But waiting an hour in a line thats just telling people "no one is on the other end", did I really need to wait an hour for that? Seems they don't even have 1 person doing chat, should still be a few.

    i'm gonna keep trying anyway. clear up everything it could be on my system, but i am confident it is beta bugs.

    still, every once in awhile it would work for 30s and i could get a run in, it's fun :) i'm not trying to bad-talk it, just be realistic about what you're getting.

    i don't understand the queue wait either though. maybe your location? i'm in ny, about 3 hours from nyc, so i imagine that's where two of my connections came from. there was a nj one too.
