Hey all, are we playing BFBC or the new BFBC2 BETA? I played both last night for several hours. I didn't notice that Alpha and Delta were online and sent emails. I'm terrible about noticing those popups while I'm playing.
Anyway, let me know where we're playing so we can link up. From what I can tell there's no headset comms in the BETA...which sucks....but there is a way to link up into a squad so we can stay on the same team. Dislikes about the BETA is the same as everyone else. I don't like the Kill-Cam.....and I don't like the fact that you have a God's Eye View of the entire battlefield while you're waiting to spawn in. You can see where everyone is and plan your strategy before you spawn. It's a little unfair. I also wish they would have changed the guided missles to be more controllable...perhaps a warhead CAM lie the JDAMs have in BFBC. And of course the fact that there's only one map for the BETA...but that's the nature of the BETA. It gets a little redundent. Othere than that...it rocks. One obvious tactical issue is that it's not going to take long for people to figure out that the way to capture the box is to send in 2 people with explosives to wire the building, one to take the box, then everyone runs and you blow up the whole building. The building crashes down preventing the other team from defusing the box.
Its kinda sucks playing BFBC right now without being able to accumulate points/rank, but I guess it's good practice. I think a lot of the really good players went to the BETA because I was able to rack up a lot of points last night. Much higher totals than I've ever been able to manage previously. I got something like 450 points one round. The best I've done before was about 250..and even that was a fluke.
We could also play COD-MW2 if anyone else has it.
- the one thing I don't like about COD-MW2 is the cheesy rewards system. They treat you like you're in Kindergarden. Everybody gets a prize regardless of how poorly they did.
