Notice what you've said though, lets reflect.
I actually looked for your bullspit. It doesn't exist. You are full of crap and can only deflect
Let me guess, you won't, because you know you have nothing and can't admit you are completely wrong.
It did exist, and he was not completely wrong and he did know something.
They announced it for early September, was it suddenly changed without him knowing? Yes. Even I thought it was early september too.

The kicker is that Caspian very well COULD have been the beta map, as it was included in the PC beta files and very playable at that. DICE just didn't, for whatever reason (probably EA pulling strings), want the PC version to be any more favored than it already (supposedly) is and get a completely different experience than consoles.
There are a lot of childish whining and not to mention that stupid, hollow, and not to mention overused threat "going to cancel my preorder" that gets thrown around every time people don't absolutely love every aspect of the game. A closed beta would have been MUCH better suited for the type of testing DICE needed, and would have a more focused and concise player base giving feedback.
Battlefield is going to be an amazing game, no doubt, but it isn't quite living up to my expectations of being a true BF2 sequel. Anyone who thinks otherwise: reload the AEK in BF3 and tell me that DICE didn't rip the reload animation RIGHT out of CoD. That alone was enough to make me doubt their motivations entirely.
^I agree with the above statement.
pointed to caspian map in the beta. All of the expos, all of the videos, everything. To say that just because it wasn't directly said means that everyone is wrong and they needed to show proof of such statement is pretty radical.
It was probably mentioned or infered to on their twitter plenty. Alot of is clearly deleted, it's obvious DICE and its employees back peddle on ALOT as one of the forum posts clearly says.

Just something you got from rumors. You are misinformed. Much, much worse. It's not my fault you can't see through rumors. No wonder the guy from DICE is pissed. People like you make up stuff, and then get ticked when they don't get it.
They were not rumors, he wasn't misinformed, and he did had something especially the stupid early september twitter thing. DICE goes back on alot of things said and then covers it all up.
I've been paying attention to "BF3 news" since Battlefield 1942. The franchise has probably been one of the top 3 most influential in my life and I've always kept a close eye on it. Most of what was being said here, I had believed was going to be in the beta as well if not the alpha in some aspects at the time.
