I haven't event loaded the game yet and I hate it already.


1. Web page based server browser? What the hell is that crap? Weres the nice, dedicate IN GAME server browser like 99% of other game have? You trying to fix what isn't broken again EA? Thats why your games the last 10 years have royall sucked ass

2. Game refuses to run dependent on what drivers im using? Wow, what ever happened to freedom of choice in PC gaming? If I wanted no choices, i'd play 360.



Lame before it even begins...

Getting tired of everyone complaining about the battlelog server selection. It's not a big deal. In fact, after using it a lot, I like it. It's nice seeing what friends of mine are playing right now without having to open the whole game, in addition to a bunch of other benefits.

Stop complaining to us, we can't do anything about it. So either be quiet and don't buy the game, or complain to DICE.

Isn't your CPU bottlenecking your 6950 unlocked?

I'm surprised to see all this raging, really. My beta experience has been very smooth, actually; compared to other BETAs at least.

-Nvidia's drivers are working well; 99% utilization, my OC didn't get borked, I've only had a couple driver-related crashes (went away after some settings tweaking). This is after a full old-school driver removal with CCleaner and Driver Sweeper in safe mode.
-Performance is what I expected. Being lazy and switching Auto to Medium, I've been seeing generally well above 60fps on my OC'd 560 Ti. There are dips here and there, but nothing extraordinary. I could probably optimize it more and get better visuals with acceptable performance (I have a hard time playing if FPS is consistently <50).
-Actual gameplay feels like a somewhat-polished beta. I'll see quirky damage, hitreg, and bullet characteristics, but, again, nothing extraordinary.

People seem to be blowing things out of proportion. If, in a couple months, the game feels exactly like it does today, that will be a cause for concern. It's not just up to DICE either; the respective GPU manufacturers need to continue driver work, and EA will have to keep the servers top-notch.
I'm staying optimistic, though; the game will continue to improve.

EDIT: Let's see... inside on Metro, 60-70 80fps on High. Outside, 45-60fps on High.

I actually don't mind the browser-based method. I think it's pretty slick that DICE were able to make a game that launches and exits so smoothly; that also makes it a breeze for alt-tabbing out of the game reliably (not that I have had any real issues with it on modern games). It works flawlessly on Chrome 14.

People fear change.

The amazing thing I have seen is people singing the praises of the BFBC2 server browser. That thing was a complete mess during beta and even months after launch. It still is not very good. In comparison this server browser is leaps and bounds better.
