Are you serious? You do realize, that the LESS your scope zooms in it looks like it has less bullet drop.

Just shoot a sniper with red dot and then with 12x scope, you WILL SEE.

It has been tested, sniper and assault rifles have roughly same bullet drop....

i still haven't played the beta yet btw.
i spent the entire day downloading it, and then during the night origin said the servers were too busy, and when i finally logged in it said "you have no games on this account".... this morning i log on again and i've gotta re-download the ENTIRE beta. some early access this is...hopefully i'll be on by the weekend? -__-

The game, even the beta, looks visually stunning. For those who have enjoyed a firefight in the subway, you'll agree with me when I say its like being in a war movie.

The player movement is fantastic, I spent a good few minutes just jumping over walls and rails because the animation is so fluid and realistic, its virtually perfect, the same goes for going from standing up to crouched and prone.

The weapons that ive used so far seem to be alright - although I havent really played enough to make a fair judgement, I did notice a slight hit registration lag a couple of times - was this the same for anyone else? Im not sure if it was the server I was on.

I also noticed that melee attacks also seem a bit slow to respond, but when you get it right, its fantasic. Nothing is more satisfying then sneaking behind the enemy team, grabbing an opponent by the throat and plunging your blade into his neck. The animation is again, stunning - however due to the slight lag in response, I found it quicker to shoot then go for the melee in those situations where you unexpectedly run into an opposing player - is this just me or does anyone else notice this?

Joining a server can take a few minutes, of course I was sat at work all day yesterday salivating at the chance to play the beta, so those minutes felt like years - I am worried that when the beta goes public, this could take even longer unless more servers start to pop up - the only way I could get into a game was using "quick game" - which turned out to be not so quick.

The server browser opens up in your internet browser of choice - I use Chrome and didnt have any problems at all, it would be nicer if it was ingame, but this doesnt bother me too much.

Something else that I noticed which I expect to be sorted in the final release - when joining a game I couldnt open the main menu to adjust my settings until I was in a game and had spawned - and even when I died I couldnt open the main menu - again, was this just me?


Thats all I can think off on my break at work - I was going to start a separate thread, but thought better of it.
I have the the same opinion as you:

Overall the game is great. My only true concerns are sometimes hit registration is definitely late or screwy. I have definitely hit people 3 or 4 times in the chest and I just drop dead to find them with like 80% health.

The graphics are definitely awesome. And my cards handle it just fine on high with 2x aa. I can push it more but ultra makes my drivers crash from some reason, not to sure what that is about.

I love the jumping over stuff however sometimes its just stupid when its like one step lol. I love the guns once you unlock a real optic sight it makes life much easier.

People piss me off, I get tk'd way to much for my liking. And people refuse to go the objectives a lot. I have had 3 or 4 games as attacking where we won but usually attacking means loosing.

I have had 0 issues joining servers except trying to get into my first game after that its easy. I just set the filter options to +5 slots open and US servers and it gives me tons of options, and makes quick match a breeze.

I hate not being able to cook grenades but i just need to get used to it and They really need to work on knifing as its clunky, slow and fails most of the time. They only way you can knife 2 people is if the other one is just really bad. I don't bother most of the time i just shoot.

They need to work on the friend thing in battlelog as i find it a bit weird and clunky.

overall i cannot wait for this game though.

Sorry ... when I can stare down a rail site without adjusting for drop and pick someone off with an entry level engineer rifle it is not consistent.

I personally enjoy the gameplay.

My only problem I've had thus far is not being able to user the party join feature and many of the game manager features. I have to refresh the page anytime someone joins the party or goes online/offline.

This is in FF/Chrome/IE - so I'm not sure what the issue is.

so is there no eyefinity support in beta, I finally got the adapter i needed to support 3 monitors on my card and I wanted to try it, I setup the eyefinity monitor grouping and when i got in game it said my res was ~5400x1050 or whatever it is 3 wide, but instead of having the side views on the side screens it was just copies of the middle screen. thoughts anyone?


Edit: also I'm really liking the beta gameplay some of the action in the tunnels is unreal
