[EGN]DICE explains Battlefield 3 beta in an interview

post #1 of 9

Today we found an interview between producer Patrick Liu and Guardian.

According to producer Patrick Liu’s conversation, we know some gamers would have high expectations of Battlefield 3. As usual, we would think a normal game would have a basis requirement like vehicles, buildings and some of the others, so “Some people have said that it’s a shame you chose a level without vehicles†and Patrick said “I think there’s been a misunderstanding of the term ‘beta test’!
has anyone noticed this issue, too?

Yep, beta test is whatever they want to offer, not what people want, a beta is just testing what they want you to test to make sure it's stable.

Finally somebody recognizes what beta is lol. I just got done play Caspian...so many people *****ing about little things. Choppyness, lag, load times....source code...lol. They seem to not realize it isn't the full fledged version yet. And don't realize how much work goes into any program or game.

You should see the amount of fun being made about the game for it's glitches... Makes me want to go to those failed sites and videos and just tell them off. Really ticked off at their lack of common sense.

With all the misconceptions about the beta it makes me think DICE only hurt themselves by releasing it to the public.

well, that marketing guy from DICE seemed to think they released a demo with they way he was talking about people complaining about the bugs...the POINT of a BETA, to test for bugs and bring them into the light.

it's the internet...
the term "beta" has been associated with "pre-release demo" in most people's mind...

I think developers should STOP having "open beta" and stick to picking out the "beta testers" who KNOW what they're doing, and what they're SUPPOSED to do...

SO MANY game "betas" had too many people whining about all the useless redundant things that doesn't matter

people want "beta" now ONLY to be able to play it ahead of everyone else, so they can stroke their e-peen...

it totally defeats the purpose of "beta"...

really devs should stop doing what idiotic fans want all the time and keep their own agenda... sure it's good advertising, but it also puts off a lot of them for not getting what 'they wanted'
