My only gripe is that, without Steam support, there are none of the integrated features such as "Join Game".
What do you mean by "join game"?

i tried doing that with the BF2 i bought in the origin sale, and i couldn't join any games punkbuster would keep kicking me, seems some other people had the same issue when the steam overlay was running...as soon as i took it out of steam worked perfectly =/
Wow fail punkbuster...I think it's because punkbuster doesn't like other programs working with the game you're using. Just like you can't use autoclickers in a game with PB




Even a bunch of people at my school who all play COD because everyone plays it are starting to get tired of the same crap.

The reasons are similar. STEAM limits your ability to interact with your customers directly in certain ways. EA isn't the only one affected by this. EA and Minecraft both sell their games directly themselves, UBISOFT don't so that's a big difference between your earlier comparison.

BF2 kicks for steam overlay on server with PB level 1 restrictions. Level 2 shouldn't kick for the overlay but almost all servers use level 1 to limit hacks. If you want to launch the game from Steam, you have to disable to overlay in Steam options.

BC2 allows it, of course. Some earlier COD games don't either.

Alright alright. How about navy style and name yourself like a boat. "S.S. Awesome" or something like that. You could also play off the dual S's and call yourself like S-Squared or S^2. LOL

Just my
Wow, was totally ROFL on that one!! Might go with S^2, that's a little better. And yeah, Idk what my parents were thinking when they gave me the initials SIS. That was an epic fail.

Back on topic, I don't think I've heard this question asked/answered, can any random person download and play the BETA, or only people who have pre-ordered the game somewhere??

So today I converted one of my co-workers from a CoD player to a Battlefield player!
I showed him the MW3 MP footage and he said, "is this a new map pack for MW2 or something?".
I said no, he then ranted on about how boring CoD is, I then showed him the video of Physical Warfare Pack of BF3 and the first thing that came out of his mouth was "HOLY SHI*! This game looks amazing in so many ways!"

He canceled his MW3 pre-order and pre-ordered BF3 after work.

I still cringe whenever I hear of people coming over to BF3 from CoD. Yes, i think battlefield games are much better, but they are completely different types of games. I have a feeling that a bunch of people are going to have pre-ordered it because it looks a heck of a lot better than CoD, but then just play it like another CoD game.

Bunny Hopping and suicide C4 tactics? Just stick to server where Tactical gameplay is enforced. There will always be Children of Duty players in any FPS game.
