Supposedly I'm supposed to get an email invite. Which they haven't sent. My early access to the beta is 1 day from being moot.
you had to buy before the 25th to get in early.

You're stuck waiting till the 29th like everyone else now.

edit: have you ever played red orchestra, er the new one at least, it feels actually kind of similar in the way you need to use cover and prone a lot and die fast/weapon strength

dolphin diving is pretty much back

guns sound fucking awesome

aiming with iron sights, at least for me, is really fucking hard. once you get a scope its so much easier.

another thing is that i cant stand this lighting, uses some weird filter or something so shadows are really dark and light is really bright or something, i cant figure it out and to me it makes spotting enemies really hard sometimes



on pc you cant walk around the map like he is, youll drop once you get out of spawn in the first part.

he also mentions "putting a sniper [rifle] on assault class" lol no you cant

operation metro blows, i can not wait for caspian border to come out
this sounds like exactly why ill like it then if its slower.

BC2 and COD and all those other ones are too arcadey and fast for me. BF2 was "slow" and thats what made it tactical, yet not too much so, it was just the right balance.

Don't judge it until we actually get to play Conquest, though. I was laughing at that guy who said he was looking forward to playing BF3 TDM in the video posted earlier.

Welp, you can try contacting EA support, but at this point you might as well wait for tomorrow.

I've never played any of the BF or (recent/modern) COD titles but I have to admit some of the gameplay trailers look pretty legit. I might actually join the bandwandon for this

I wonder how well my 6970 will handle this at 2560x1600

He's on 360. Only beta video I've found so far.
There are hundreds of HD videos, many on PC at "Ultra" graphics settings in YT. Just plug in "operation metro" or "caspian border," sort by most recent and bam, all the beta footage you can handle until it opens up tomorrow.

PC beta was ~4GB when it was put up and people that got wind of the leaked password for Caspian Border had not trouble joining so I'm pretty sure it was included in the download for some reason or another. The PS3 beta download was about 1GB and I haven't heard that there is a PS3 Caspian Border server so I can't explain why there's another 4GB of stuff to dl for the PC version.

I meant only console footage I've found so far. I'm going to play on PS3, so I'm not all that interested in how it plays on PC, because my piece of crap PC can't handle it anyways.

There wasn't another 4 gig update, it was origin changing the name of the folder and then redownloading the beta
