if you remember you could only play the Gears of War 3 beta if you bought Bulletstorm: Epic Edition but shortly after the beta was released it was open to all XBOX Live Gold members.

same with Uncharted 3 multiplayer beta.

a pre-order will get you early access then media outlets will give away codes in contests and once publishers can't exploit that anymore they open up the beta.

whatever happened to filling out a form and having exclusive access?

Have to wait, all luck of the drawn once again for beta (unless your have MoH).
:) MOHLE to be exact.

PS
They (Dice) are doing what BFp4F did in alpha and beta ,they would start in alpha phase for testing general ui and server strength(that test for BF3 happens this weekend),Then after a week or 2 of that the went right to full beta(closed) to test new things like graphics,weapon,balance....then after a month of that they did an other full server stress test before they wet live open(which we are still doing)but they also have us closed beta testers still testing in PTE(also open guys) for teir 3 stuff.So hopefully when August 3rd comes we get closed beta until Sept 15 i think open beta happens.


September.
Yes.
Youd have to have pre-ordered MOH for it to matter. Either way, there will be an open beta for non-MON preorderers a few days after the MOH people get in.
From a few pages back,It was also for guys who had the beta access card in the dvd case :) ;)

Thats the way most betas work, either gain access through pre-ordering a previous game, or filling out a form and waiting to be picked random. Then later on it just goes Open and then no more pulling names out of a hat for people who filled out forms.

Yeah, Kurgan, to answer your question.

Yes some got the email, some of us like me and Alex just tried logging in with our EA accounts and it gave us a code. Others, neither happened...

Edit: Hmm apparently here's a way to change binds. Anyone want to try this? I'm at work.


And here are some further tweaks using a diff method/util:

this really works here is my settings if some of you want them ..Nice to have what I`m used too back.:)

// BF3
KEY.W = KEYBOARD.UP
KEY.A = KEYBOARD.LEFT
KEY.S = KEYBOARD.DOWN
KEY.D = KEYBOARD.RIGHT
KEY.R = MOUSE.BUTTON3
KEY.Z = KEYBOARD.Period
KEY.Q = KEYBOARD.PAGEDOWN
KEY.G = KEYBOARD.END
KEY.F = KEYBOARD.DELETE
KEY.V = KEYBOARD.DOT
KEY.X = KEYBOARD.ForwardSlash
KEY.Space = RightControl
KEY.LeftShift = RightShift
KEY.E = Enter

Open the program then copy paste it to the ui window,Click file save,Then click the play button too run it.start game.

well, I can get MOH around $14 here. If i bought it but didnt play it, but registered/activated the key, would i still get into a beta this late into the game?
nope ,you have to have bought the LE version with the beta access card and register that card for the beta.

nope i`m right handed and have used the arrow keys for movement since the Doom days,Only thing about that program is when you slect mouse wheelup for nades and mouse wheeldown for melee it messes the game up.So i can live with the main keys set for my taste.

Your keyboard positing must be way to the left :p I set my keyboard on my lap, would be almost impossible to use arrow keys with left hand.

If you want to fix mice bindings, get a gaming mouse, my RAT 7 is sexy for bindings.

Beta is just a fancy way to say demo nowadays. Its all marketing.

back in the days DEMO's used to be free, now you have to jump through hoops and pre-order or buy all sorts of malarkey like morris dancing with nuns before you 'qualify' for their demo.

I was playing the BF2 demo for a good month before i decided to buy the game, totally loved it

That was because companies realized they could get away with forcing you to buy a lower quality game just for the ability to test their blockbuster game before buying it. Do you think Crackdown, Bulletstorm, or Medal of Honor would have sold 1/2 of what they all did without the attached Beta's they contained?

My razer lachesis is alright when it works properly. The 5600 edition which is what i have is finicky and they never release firmware updates.

Man after playing the game (alpha) for 10 hours I can defiantly say that the final game will be one hell of a campers fest.

There are lots of bugs which is to be expected in an alpha trial but I really hope that they fix all of them before the final release (unlikely).

It's really hard to detect people with your eyes if they are a few meters away from you. You have to be extremely focused and look for tiniest distortion.

It's one map with limited weapons and no vehicles yet. Much less custom controls. I doubt it will be that always...

Not that I know of, otherwise what would be the point of them giving out beta access to those that own MoH? It might go Open after a while, but I'm pretty sure it will start as Closed just based off that.
DICE has been stressing that the beta will be an open beta on all three platforms. MoH people should get early access, probably for a few days to two weeks, max.

Gamespy - Exclusive: Secrets of the Battlefield 3 Alpha Trial

By Daniel Hindes | Jul 27, 2011
An in-depth look at the new features revealed in the ongoing BF3 test run.

With Battlefield 3's closed multiplayer Alpha testing currently underway, a select few players have been getting hands-on time with its new infantry and weapon mechanics. We've examined their extensive YouTube footage -- frame-by-frame Zapruder style -- and unearthed the key new features these lucky souls are playing with. You might be surprised at what we've found -- DICE has included some amazing new game mechanics that fundamentally change the way you'll play Battlefield.

Get on the Floor

Lying down is the new crouching. The prone position, conspicuously absent from Bad Company 2, makes a welcome return in Battlefield 3. DICE deliberately left it out of the Bad Company series, as the developer intended for players to constantly be on the move -- not camping behind a piece of rubble.

So what does its return mean for Battlefield 3? Slower, more tactical infantry movements for starters. You're not going to be able to burst into a room and take everyone head-on, as any enemy lying down with his heavy machine gun will pick you off before you have the chance to say, "Boo."

But prone also brings with it a number of issues. Battlefield 2 veterans still suffer less-than-pleasant flashbacks to its dolphin-diving antics, while competitive players still swear by easy headshots thanks to the instant accuracy boost when hitting the deck. There's also that golden oldie of grass -- how does the game deal with drawing it? A prone player might think they're hidden comfortably behind these green blades of invisibility, but will they be seen by somebody on the other side of the map?

To combat these problems, Battlefield 3 attaches a few conditions to its prone mechanic. Heading for the deck will cause the crosshairs to instantly and significantly expand, as accuracy goes out the window. Additionally, DICE has added a short delay between hitting the prone button and when the player can start shooting. It all adds up to dolphin diving becoming a fools errand - as it should be.

Cutty Says Hi

Melee moves have always been troublesome in multiplayer games. The quick-knife kills typified by the Modern Warfare series are rarely satisfying -- for those on both ends of the sharp stick. Things like the Commando perk make teleporting into melee range beyond ridiculous. Battlefield 3 solves this with the introduction of a more nuanced knifing system.

Players can still quick-knife -- run up to an enemy and tap a button for an agile stab -- but they also have the option of holding their blade as their primary weapon. With knife in hand, players can take the time to sneak behind an opponent and initiate a stealth kill. This is a special kind of melee kill that locks both players into a visceral animation. The one doing the stabbing will pull back their opponent's head and stick 'em in the chest, while the victim's perspective will automatically spin around to see their killer deliver the fatal blow. This means that getting knifed is no longer a "WTF just happened?" moment -- you got outplayed, and your opponent has the dog tags to prove it.

The alpha still has a few issues with the canned animations -- knifing someone while they're prone will cause them to stand up before the animation plays -- but expect these to be fine-tuned very soon.

Suppress the Truth

Enduring a shower of hot lead in the older Battlefield games wasn't really a big deal. This all changes in Battlefield 3, with a new suppression effect ripped right out of Battlefield 2's Project Reality mod.

Suppression is a true game changer; the idea is to simulate the involuntary human reaction to getting shot at -- also known as complete and utter terror -- by creating localized blurs on the screen where bullets are flying past your head. This, combined with a punchy and refined snap, hiss, and whiz of lead will make players think twice about sticking their head up while under fire. But it's not just a visual affect, as suppression affects gameplay too.

Soldiers under fire will suffer from reduced hip-fire accuracy until they regain their composure. Players doing the suppressing -- by shooting at and around enemies -- will earn suppression points, even if someone else delivers the killing shot.

The end result of the suppression system is a far more physical experience for players when the bullets start flying, and it finally makes the game's light machine guns work the way they do in real life, as a tool for keeping the enemy behind cover. Players will have to think tactically and outside the box -- keeping an enemy pinned with a light machine gun can be just as rewarding as waiting to take them out with a headshot.

Frickin' Laser Beams

Ever looked directly into a laser pointer? Hurts, doesn't it? Battlefield 3 is going to give players the chance to blind their enemies with the next best thing -- red laser sights.

As an underbarrel attachment, the laser sight offers increased accuracy by showing exactly where the next bullet is going to hit. But that accuracy comes at a cost -- shine the laser sight in the face of an enemy, and they'll receive a brief, bright red flash as the laser dot bounces off their retinas. It's not specific enough to give away your position, but it's strong enough to let them know that they're about to be shot, and will prompt them to take cover.

A second underbarrel attachment for Engineers comes in the form of a flashlight. Not only does it illuminate darkened areas like the underground sections of the Paris metro, but it can be shone in the faces of enemies to temporarily white out a player's screen and blind them. This makes Engineers great at storming enclosed areas, as they can take advantage of the flashlight disorientation. Of course, in open areas flashlights turn the holder into a giant glowing target.

Surface Tension

Many of Battlefield 3's weapons now come from the gun shop with a useful new bipod attachment, which can be mounted on any surface. It's as easy as right-clicking to aim down the sights while near something of the appropriate height. If you can't find something, just go prone -- anywhere on the floor counts.

Mounted weapons have the advantage of increased stability, so they won't kick as much with each shot, which means you can empty the 100-round clip of a light machine gun with much greater confidence. Combine this with the game's suppression system, and the Support class now has something to do beyond aiming for direct kills. But, like every new mechanic in Battlefield 3, it comes with its disadvantages.

Mounted weapons have a limited viewing arc of about 90 degrees. If you come under fire, it'll take extra time to pack up the bipod and be free to move again. And, if an enemy simply blows up the piece of the environment your weapon is mounted on, you're going to look like a right idiot as you suddenly start shooting the roof. There's a time and a place for mounting weapons, and it's not in the middle of a pitched firefight!

----------

Spy Guy says: I had the chance to unload on enemies in Battlefield 3 using the bipod-equipped LMG at the E3 demo. It. Was. Awesome. Combined with the new suppression mechanic, the Support Class is about to become a rock star. It's just one of the major changes coming to Battlefield 3, as you can see by this article, and DICE has even more new features up its sleeve. What are your thoughts on the tweaks and additions, and what else would you like to see in Battlefield 3?
