I'm not sure how many people frequent this board, but I was wondering what people thought about the BF3 beta?

I have really mixed feelings about it myself. I was pretty much done until DICE announced that they were releasing Caspian Border for the weekend. The influx of hackers has made the beta nigh-unplayable at the moment, but I think opening Caspian Border was a really smart move on DICE's part. A BF3 beta without an open vehicle map wouldn't have been a battlefield beta, after all.

Of course there's other issues, like the glitches, driver issues, the absence of standard features like squad selection and loadout inventory management, and the lack of Punkbuster. I still think DICE has redeemed themselves with the gesture of opening up Caspian Border, though. With that said, I was a bit disappointed that DICE doesn't fully realize the implications of opening the beta. Betas aren't just for testing--they're a huge PR and marketing move. Had DICE been more prepared, they would've snagged a couple more preorders and purchases. Oh well.

Oh, one more thing: For those who are worried about the final release, check out this article. DICE really has patched a lot of the problems based on player feedback!
