The minimap is downright embarrassing, and although they promised to fix it from beta, it's still next to useless.

You've pressed 'N', correct? It cycles the minimap through 3 zoom levels, and seems quite useful to me.

The release has huge amounts of polish over the beta, and as I said in an earlier thread, just feels right. Spotting is also no longer at the absurd dorito-of-death BC2 levels, now it's really only useful as a temporary marker for teammates.

I had some earlier (read, 2 minutes after unlock) back-end issues when things go overloaded, but since then it's been fine for me. I'd love it if they added the ability to tweak loadouts and compare weapon stats (range, damage, etc) in Battlelog.

The death-cam, while annoying, isn't too bad considering you have to wait for the deployment timer anyway. I can live with it.

As for the meat-grinder maps, I think people need to adjust tactics. So far most of those games are just both teams rushing for the middle point, which leads to lots of death. In one round this morning, someone on the enemy team got smart and flew to the rear flag, had his teammates spawn on him, and capped it. It changes the whole flow at that point, and broke a stalemate that we had been winning. It really boils down to changing your strategy if what you're doing isn't working.

Personally, I'm very happy with my purchase. I'm having an absolute blast with the game, even though I still can't fly worth a damn. At least I'm good in the AA vehicles.

Edit: I'd love the ability to change my handle. I wish I'd known that my EA account name would apply to the game itself.
