Played last night just after it was released. Pretty miserable experience. Game crashed during almost every match. I think after the 5th time I gave up and turned it off. Maybe it's just opening night issues but when the program freezes and I have to alt tab or open the task manager that doesn't seem like server issues.

Game runs ok on the new nvidia drivers, I think I'm on medium at 720p and I'm gettin 60fps. Game feels really jumpy by design. Everything seems to make you bump and move around, especially in ground vehicles, driving a tank feels like you're driving a dune buggy.

This is very close to how playing the beta felt at the start, wasn't expecting hte game to feel this frustrating all over again. Some of the maps are pure garbage in my opinion. I despise these infrantry "tunnel" maps where all you can do is run into the other team, seems like they're trying to offer the COD experience in those and they seem like a complete waste of time.

Hopefully things will get better.
