    Already un-installed it so wont be bothering to test caspian border map this weekend. If EA has an issue with players judging the final game on the strength of the beta they have the power to release a more complete "improved" version (call it a Demo if they wish). :p

    Finally!

    I played about 30 seconds of CB before the servers closed. Lookin' forward to it. Operation Metro is incredibly annoying now.

    Just tried it. Got really bad lag on one server, okayish lag on another and huge GFX glitches on both. Still, this is what I want from a battlefield game.

    I just wish for once dice could have a server that's browser pings = ingame ping. Its so annoying.

    Did you notice any squad management in conquest mode on CB or is it still "join/find" and nothing else?

    Didn't notice any difference. I will have a proper look when I play with a mate later as that is when I will care.

    Just to let you know that DICE has now confirmed ingame Squad Management for the full release...it just didn;t make it to the Beta. http://www.enterbf3.com/viewtopic.php?t=4967&sid=0a51ba5e89657bdfd4a45d35676f0622

    The problem is that in this case the "beta" is actually a pre game demo. Its the only thing we have to go on about the quality of the final product. The huge list of bugs, none of which have been fixed during the beta, do not give me and confidence in the product, infact its made me very worried.

    What is a gamer to do? I have to assume based on the demos its going to be an incredibly buggy COD clone. Confirming that something is going to fixed doesn't show me that they actually get the problem, or that they are going to fix the literally vast list of technical problems the game continues to have.

    Do you trust them?! I don't.
