    I can understand his depression, fathering his "thing" baby, then spending nights out on the town with MT, he's just wanting you to live up to the father role for your alien/man/woman/thing child.

    Not sure about that, I've never got stuck in the ground so much as the last few hours. Or are you talking about something else?

    Well...this was supposedly the case and I personally have not fallen through the ground since the first couple days except for on one server two days ago and someone asked in chat "did they turn the terrain destruction back on?".

    So it sounds like it's definitely related to that but not sure now if really off across the board. At least anymore.

    I've only been able to play the beta on PS3 but falling through the ground is still present. Also, !!IMO!!, it doesn't look all that good. I have it preordered for PC so I'm not worried but the lower res is very noticeable to me, but I do have very scrutinizing eyes. The postprocessing is overwhelming, especially the Post AA which I'm guessing is like MLAA for ATI 5xxx/6xxx. While I do love this feature, it only looks good when applying it to high res images on a screen with small pixel pitch. On my monitor which I also use for my PS3 it makes it look very "fuzzy" and aliasing is still very prevalent.

    Just a heads up for people considering BF3 for consoles.

    PS. I know its a beta and I know what 'beta' means. ;) My preorder (PC) is still on.

    A new FAQ with mostly old information, plus that in red:

    Bazajaytee Enlisted: 09/26/2011

    10/05/2011 04:41AM

    WILL THERE BE DOWNTIMES DURING THE BATTLEFIELD 3 OPEN BETA?

    Yes. Throughout the BF3 Open Beta we will be patching and testing our server configurations. While downtimes may happen at any time, please note the following downtimes scheduled daily from Tuesday Oct 04, through Friday Oct 07:

    Playstation 3 : 6:00 am - 7:00 am UTC
    PC (including Battlelog) : 7:00 am – 8:00 am UTC
    Xbox 360 : 8:00 am – 9:00 am UTC

    WHAT VIDEO CARD DRIVERS DO I NEED FOR THE BETA?

    For AMD, you'll need to download the 11.10 Preview Driver http://support.amd.com/. [support.amd.com] For nVidia, you'll need the 285.38 BETA driver (32 bit http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7-winvista-64bit-285.38-beta-driver.html [nvidia.com] of 64 bit http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7-winvista-32bit-285.38-beta-driver.html) [nvidia.com]

    WILL MY STATS CARRY OVER FROM THE BETA TO THE FINAL GAME?

    No. We are still fine tuning the ranking system and we don't want to give BETA players and unfair advantage when Battlefield 3 launches. You will keep your soldier name though.

    DOES THIS BETA REPRESENT FINAL GAME QUALITY?

    The BETA is NOT final software and updates will be done both to the game and to the back-end prior to the Battlefield 3 launch. Your participation will still help us improve the final game.

    I SEE THERE ARE SERVERS UP FOR A SECOND MAP ON PC. CAN I ACCESS AND PLAY THIS MAP?

    Operation Metro is the only map being run during the Open BETA on all platforms. Testing of Caspian Border on PC has come to an end at this time.

    ARE THERE ANY RESTRICTIONS TO PLAY TIME IN THE BETA?

    You can play for as long as you want during the time of the BETA. There will be no cap on how far you can rank up or what you can unlock.

    HOW WILL SQUADS WORK IN THE RETAIL VERSION OF BATTLEFIELD 3 ON PC/XBOX 360/PLAYSTATION 3?

    Since the Open BETA we’ve added more advanced functionality to manage your squad. You will be able to browse and join specific squads through the squad screen. You can see all players that are in a specific squad as well as who’s playing as lone wolf. As a squad leader you can set your squad to private as well as kick players from the squad.

    On console you will also be able to choose if you want the active VoIP channel to be team or squad and invite friends to your squad. You will also be able to mute any player on your team through the scoreboard.

    in the beta yes, in the full game no. once you get to more open terrain, it's potency will be nerfed by sheer distance. didn't see a single one on Caspian.

    I think all guns do purdy much around the same damage in metro since there is barely any range in encounters unless you're sniping well maybe not exactly but kills just as fast, AEK-971 is the way to go :D. By the way I'm disliking the SV98 so far in Metro, it can kill with one shot short-mid range, its a load of crap.

    Pretty sure I got sniped by a guy using one with a bipod and a scope. He was at Hill and I was at Antenna (for anyone who doesn't know, that has to be well over 300 yards I would think). I didn't know where the bullets were even coming from, I just know every single one hit me, didn't hear a single one wiz past, so I took cover for a few seconds. Then I took off running for the flag again and he dropped me, once again didn't seem like a single one missed. On big maps I think Recons going to be pretty rare since scope glare, you can just flank them and kill them, albeit you will have to go way out of your way to do so. On Rush, you just can't do that, you either need to kill them straight on, or try and take a slightly different route.

    i'm pretty sure you will be able to have more than one "soldier" under your one single battlefield/battlelog account which is tied to one key. not until retail but i remember a blog post or something.

    You did not just say that. I mean only longer respawn times, but then, to many campers, that sucks too.

    So 44 is the max unlock range for general arms. I reached 45 which should have been the .44 Magnum Scooped, but they did not give it to me. This is why all the guns beyond that point have 45 as a rank. There seems to be more than 50 ranks as my next one will be a Silver Eagle (Colonel) but I have seen people with gold eagles with 4's under them.

    The USAS-12 Gauge shotgun is exactly what you think it is.

    Nosferatu is still the truth. I am done now. I have seen all I needed to see. If someone wants to play with my guns, I will gladly join and suicide for you.
