    Yeah surprised not more chatter about the locked (tho populated) Caspian server(s) here. Have already seen mention that perhaps we all may get a taste before the beta is over but I am not holding my breath exactly.

    And as for it being able to handle the Open traffic I dunno; it seem to be struggling now with "Closed". But I haven't played enough yet to really judge.

    i bought it, it was solid. polished, quality run of the mill.it was so general that there was nothing "awesome" about it.

    i enjoyed playing it, but only put a few hours in before something else took my attention. there's nothing wrong with it, it's just not very good.

    well i am sure they don't have it running on full hardware. they are working out optimization before they scale i imagine. but open is when they normally get ready for release. not to say they will ramp up fast or full, but i imagine some more hardware will be added to serve us by then.

    EA could have done a better job letting folks download the frickin demo and just paste the code in tomorrow. As it is, I'll have to wait for the damn thing appear on origin and then download it (god I hate waitin!) Gotta download some pr0n tonite to keep me occupied tomorrow.

    It's not worth the stress of waiting. Single map, a bit buggy, horrible matchmaking. Though, it does have some good things going for it. Hopefully they'll open up at least one other map for the beta.

    God I hope so. The underground part really sucks for me.
    I have a really hard time seeing in Dark games, or Dark places period.

    Yeah but I can at least frag a lil. Haven't been gaming since I got tired of BC2. At least I've got the FIFA 12 demo to keep me up tonight.

    There are some folks playing the second map, earlier Zhint0 posted a code (I posted it earlier) giving access to it. Code's expired now though.

    Same. Really bad choice of maps, glitchy, but fun and a lot to look forward too.
    I can't wait to play the Campaign. Pretty easy learning curve. Of course we
    haven't been subjected to vehicles yet.

    You have a very low tolerance of "perfect".

    Lame Electronic Arts!!! They ran out of Early Access Beta keys :banghead:

    Finally got a hold of a guy on Origin Live Chat help and basically, what he said was to wait until open beta like everyone else because they did not have any keys left.
