It had to end sometime, and it just did. Thousands of people have joined the beta on PC, Playstation 3 and XBox 360 to get a glance of the game in progress and to help the creators get rid of any last remaining bugs but more importantly to actually improve the game before launch. EA has created a list of the ten most important issues that have been given attention or even have been fixed in the last few weeks, below some highlights.
I cannot play with friends within same squad; squads sometimes get split up onto opposite teams.
There will be improved squad functionality in the retail game (including but not limited to): the ability to create squads prior to launching into a game, sticking with your squad when joining a game and continuing together through future games (If team balance on the server allows it), inviting friends to a squad and changing squads once in game.
Why is the hit detection different from Battlefield: Bad Company 2? The netcode is one of the many things that we are testing as part of the Open Beta and is not necessarily reflective of the final retail game. The DICE team appreciates and has heard the feedback you’ve provided and is further optimizing online play.
Can we change settings before deployment into a match on a PC? Yes. Added into the retail game.
