You can't say that the developers don't gain MUCH more from putting beta out than not. Hence why it doesn't become a privilege. A demo on the other hand is a privilege, I get to test out the product before I buy it? Sure thank you, not many do it today so it is a privilege. Give me a buggy game so you can collect information about my system and my network so you can optimize your game so you can sell more? that is not a privilege.
You are thinking like the one described by the article who wants his free game optimized to his PC and whines because a BETA isn't optimized ( the word begin by a D and end by bag in the article .)

YES this is a privilege NO it's not a demo and you have to give feedback so THEY can optimize the game for YOUR hardware. You are doing nothing in the whole process to help them making sales you are just whining because you have problem on your system and want it solved for YOUR pleasure and not others. You are the kind of people that makes a game sales less and make developers think twice when releasing a beta.

We have every right to complain, it is our money that keeps their lights on. Simple as that. Beta or not, over a million preorderd this game, you think they would have done a little better. Like someone said earlier in this thread, a lot of people will jump ship because of their poor selection in map, ect.
I just wanted to clarify this is no way the designers of the games fault. A lot of people are going to have a lot too say now that he came out of the closest and crying because people don't like his game.

His response is immature. If the beta were as good as we all expected it to be, then the whining would be minimal. It's simply not as good as EA has been bragging it to be.

You are aware people are canceling preorders because the beta should still be considered alpha? Not because of people that are complaining.

some whining is ok, but flat out cursing at the creators on their own forums is a bad idea.

I think the people who are cancelling their preorders are the ones that prematurely hopped on the Battlefield 3 hype wagon and now have promptly fallen of. Did people really expect a bug free beta?

The game has been running pretty good for me, 45-90fps on ultra @1080p, no crashes or bsod. I do have a few complaints such as the lack of squad features but it is a beta and im sure DICE will fix it. As for the map, while its a poor choice of map it doesnt reflect the quality of the game

Ummmm...why? DICE have a long and sordid history of NOT fixing major issues with their games. You think this one's going to be the one to break the mold or something?

I have been in the Alpha and the closed Beta and play Metro daily and was lucky enough to get to play Caspian Border for about 2 hours in total, I agree completely with him, the whining has been way above and beyond what it should be, there is a huge difference in pointing out problems and just complaining that it not like BF2 of BC2... Really ???

It's a BETA and the sole purpose of a BETA is testing and refining the code...

I for one am grateful that I am part of this and have nothing but respect for him and his team, the code writers get no props but those people are putting in major hours into what worked well in a lab into a game with thousands of different variables in just the different hardware configurations, let alone having to ensure the code is working correctly in both DX10 & Dx11 and this is just for the PC version, remember they are also doing the console port for XBOX & PS3, this is something that for the code writers is a lot to manager and prioritize in order to meet a deadline…

Lastly, for all that disagree you are entitled to your opinion, but I am guessing you have forgotten how many patches we have had in each and every game since BF1942… BF3 for PC will have many patches just like every other game, so just relax and give the people writing the code a break already…

This^ People need to understand that a beta= test for bugs & glitches and a demo is a little piece of the final product to try out.

Show me where I said this beta isn't optimized.

Also Did you just tell me I have to go out and spend time beta testing so I can have the game optimized for my pc?

What am I paying 60 bucks for than?
It is THEIR job to get the game working on systems NOT mine.

Also did you just read any of my other posts? I said I have no problem with beta, the only thing I am complaining about is squad management.
