    I bought one CD key from them, Borderlands 2 and everything was fine. It wasn't a preorder so I don't know how they handle that. Hope we are talking about the same guys since they look pretty OK to me, here's the link:

    So beta ends on Oct 15 , no servers running on 16 but retail not available till 29 ?

    wonder why they leave 14 days of no play , anyone know if retail will be whole new install, dir from the beta ?
    I assume it would be .

    Yes the game will be a completely separate download. The gap is to give themselves time to address issues with the game, glitches, server fails, etc.

    The game has improved a lot over last few days (3 updates) .So you didn't really miss much .

    I did have weird lag issue one time a a 64 player match last night (others on server also noticed it )
    Even though ping was low when you ran your speed would be normal for few seconds than lag back for split second then return, and over an over .
    It did clear up after while I think servers was having some kind of issue , network wise ( I can't remember if I changed servers or not).

    Yeah it makes sense that they have it wide open and free. More testers (which is the main point) and more people try and thus possibly more buy. It's just first, "early" access that is essentially sold as a Premium bonus and such.

    The frigging game launches in a internet browser?

    Every time I try and join a server it just sits there logging in or launching.

    I was playing with some random pub earlier and he was one of the few I seem to run across that talk. Anyway he said he needed more ammo. I told him I would get it and switched to support. Spawned in and dropped the ammo box (not the pack). His exact words were "thanks man. OHHH You have the good one."

    Download the below and "Add Game" (BF4) then hit "Check for Updates".

    http://websec.evenbalance.com/downloader/download.php?file=1

    And the "browser launcher" actually kicks ass.

    Ammo packs that reload rockets too come with a later unlock for Support (which is what dude meant by "the good one", of course). Maybe you already know that; just clarifying for all.

    Quick tips:

    1) If you're manning the gun on the z-9, don't worry about getting shot out. The window is bullet proof. I'm not sure about the Huey. So next time you see that Z-9 sitting on top of C, jump in the gunner seat and have some fun.

    2) To 2 hit kill a helo with a stinger, like you do a tank with a RPG, you need to hit the rotors from the top down.

    Not sure how many knew these. Just a couple things I've picked up over the last 3-4 days.

    It's beta. They have been having performance issues. You cant compare BF4 beta to BF3 final.

    I don't see any vehicles. That's got me worried.

    Did it ever occur to you crossfire might not be working yet?

    Glad i went with 680s when I sold off my 6970s, the timing couldn't of been more perfect :p

    Though If AMD were quicker to come out with a permanent fix then maybe crossfire owners wouldnt be so butthurt about the whole thing,

    A fire was discovered and rather than extinguish it completely AMD have removed the fuel and feed the fire enough to keep it burning rather than fizzle out. Who knows when they will come out with a perma fix for crossfire.
