My weapon of choice... a car. Allows for off season hunting as well!
This beta is going to make me cancel my preorder just out of hate for metro
Then cancel it and STFU. Enough with the complaining from everyone.
It's not so much about shot placement here as distance to target, but yes, few rifles have shot more deer and Injuns as the old 30-30.
Husqvarna Imperial 7mm Mag, here. Triple beam mauser action. So damn nice.
I have an old Springfield with the peep, too. You don't see many .30-06s or .270s around here, anymore. Once the magnum cartridges came out, they petered out.

Have you ever played in a beta before? It's for testing and getting a general idea of the game. And if you have fun, play till your heart is content. But since many things are not available in betas, don't sit and grind it if you are no longer having fun. Because if you do, you will get a bad opinion of the game, and usually once someone has a bad opinion of a game, it's impossible to go back.
Personal example for me is Age of Conan. Played it in Beta loved it, played it at release and loved it. But around level 50 quests were few and far between. So I started a new character to give them time to patch in new ones. Made it to 60 with that character and finally just couldn't grind anymore. AoC has seen tons of improvements since then, and reading about it I love it. but when I go back it just lacks fun, simply because of my previous experience. Since then, I do not sit and grind games that are starting to lose that fun factor.
This isnt even a "Beta" tho. It's a stress test/demo promo free play etc..
I've beta tested many games where you report bugs in a bugtracker and are in direct contact with developers, that is a beta. This is what the ill informed see as a beta but in reality is part stress test and mostly a pr stunt
Anything prior to a gold master is a Alpha/Beta. Sorry. Welcome to the city of wrong. Population you.
Just got a collateral with the SV98
This person claims there is aim assets in the beta.
So much sh*t nonsense going on about the beta, I thought I might share a good song with ya BF fans, just listen to it and relax some. Folks need it around here! You might wanna dlod it before it gets old!
*Dunno if its quite right to post this here, but since its been uploaded on Youtube, so why not?*
I totally agree. Like Shib I hate the map, but I just don't play it. I struggle in the tunnel to see anything. I'll dink around with it when bored,
but I'm just waiting for the release. The old maps they have I love and there will be some new added good maps.
I didn't care much for the BFBC2 beta map either, but loved the game.
I hate Metro and Rush but I've learned to cope.
since the whole game is rush and on metro, I'm going to cancel my non-existent pre-order.....
I don't know many games that were bug-free and full-featured BEFORE release.....
Here is a Beta Performance/IQ review. This is using the latest drivers
Well, darn, didn't know the beta was multiplayer only. Have no idea about gameplay yet, so I'll probably get slaughtered as soon as I can actually get in a server. Had it for 2 days now, and still haven't even seen it yet! Must be awful darn good for so many to put up with so much!
BF3 beta is not a "stress test/demo promo" at all. BF3 is a game that has a TON of multiplayer aspects that can't be fully evaluated by a staff of developers. This beta was solely to discover and fix multiplayer bugs/glitches, which is exactly what EA/DICE are doing. How unhappy would you be if the game were released with all these bugs players are experiencing? The ENTIRE point of a beta is to find issues and fix them before release. Be happy you get to enjoy the game early, and shush up already.
In my opinion, it's awesome. It is buggy, there are balance issues. All in all, it's a great game and I'm not disappointed with the $60 I put down on it. I'll be playing on day one.
Hopefully PunkBuster is ready by then.
Ug, do you have to be in the dam game to set options? I finally got in a server, was trying to set up graphics and key bindings, and get shot before I can finish. Frustrating....
Yeah, it's very annoying, but hopefully that's something that is tweaked for the final release.
I enjoyed the time I've put into it, but I'm going to wait for the full release now. I just didn't like waiting an obnoxious amount of time to join a server, and the map became boring for me very quick. However, the five minutes I was able to play on Caspian Border was enjoyable, albeit short-lived.
Then mine must be broken because I don't have that "problem". Never once.
Thats what everyone thinks of every beta now days. They see a bug, throw their arms in the air and judge the final game for it. If you are doubting the purchase, cancel your pre-order and wait for reviews to see if bugs have been squashed. But a beta is a beta, it is not a demo, so they don't call it a demo. And now days it seems to many people just jump into a beta as a demo for the game.
well why shouldnt they Kurgan?
look at RAGE its out NOW and its just as BUGGY as the BF3 BETA and its a full retail release
the reason ppl bitch is because 99% of the time the problems in the beta REMAIN once the game is released and take forever for most developers to fix. or the Dev takes shortcuts to get the job done and it mucks it up worse
BC2 + MOH hit detection remember that little short cut? that dicked everyone over took months for it to be back pedaled and fixed even then they only got it back to the way it originally was lolz
BC2 hit detection was fine at launch, somehow it got worse later, though I to this day never had a problem with it. People can be afraid of what they want, I might get struck by lightning, so I will never go outside again. I've played in a lot of Betas and almost all of the bugs have been fixed, nothing is ever perfect, and if you expect it to be, life will be a disappointment in all regards. I go by the policy, expect the worst, hope for the best, and I'm happy with most of the games I get most of the time. Also did RAGE even have a public beta? If not, how is that a decent comparison?
