Do all beta's suck balls like this one is right now?

If so...this is definately the last time I ever download and install a game that is still in beta. I dont have the patience to help the developer trouble shoot their product.

I'm a gamer, not a software tester!

EXACTLY, I knew exactly what this game was going to be like from all the videos I watched. So far its what I expected

Yeah, the beta at the moment is plagued with issues. I got into one game, but I don't think I was even connected to the server lol. I didn't see anyone and every 20 seconds I would be back where I started. Almost impossible to get into a proper game, heh. Server browser and history browsers crash to desktop, and the play now button always results in the "Connection Lost" error.

Yes all betas do suck, they're not for you to try out the game, they're for you to help test the game. They need help with different configurations of computers, and many more avenues of approach to find bugs and crashes. This is the point of a beta.

See that article for reference if you're still unsure about what a Beta is.

Okay.
For those of you crashing in the server browser, here's something you can try...
1) Run the game's exe as an admin
2) Log in to your EA account
3) Hit "Join Game" and then Instead of getting into a game, hit the "Server" button in the bottom right.
4) Look at the servers and play from here. It shouldn't crash.
*Note, sometimes you can't get servers here, and other times you can... So keep trying I guess?

This worked for me and I hope it works for some of you guys until they fix it!

I should of known......but after all the teaser trailers, hype, MW2 failure......i was so eager to play BF BC2. Guess I'll just give it a couple of weeks and then fire it back up.

Wow, it actually worked, too bad all the servers for me are in europe lol.

Edit: Something I noticed, it just goes into your history for the play now mode, servers I had joined or tried to join are not listed either.

Edit #2: It crashed on me when I accidentaly closed the server list.

It depends on the type of game/developer.


They're mostly for bug testing and server load tests, not for playing. If you don't have the patience then so be it, but don't whine because you were expecting retail-caliber gameplay.

I was getting the CTD, tried this and it works although the only server that showed up was full!
