From what I read and heard about how lame actual multiplayer( overpowered configurations in loadout and lame tactics) in this game is I see no reason to waste my time.
I heard a bunch of stuff too. But it's fricken free, go see for yourself if you're even mildly interested for cripes sake and quit being a queen about it.

Those of us with the UI beta STILL can't seem to access it.
It takes 30 secs to switch it off. It is a beta afterall.

No single player for free so not interested. I'd rather pay for and support Bad Company 2.
Not a very intelligent post/mentality. You'll find yourself "not interested" in many things, because many things of substance aren't free.

Excellent, I'll reinstall this weekend.
Ditto. Been looking forward to playing the $40 game I bought months ago. It hurts a little bit, each time I see this freakin game on sale for $5 now, when I haven't even played it to this point. Oh well, at least it'll be playable now which is good.

They should have done it earlier, just to show people what the multiplayer is really like with IWNet, for good or bad. I see a lot of overreaction from people about how bad it is, and then I see a lot of over praise for it from defenders. The truth is in the middle.
I'm actually pretty surprised a Triple-A title from Activision is even getting a free weekend, let alone so soon after release. I imagine it's for the reasons WinterMadness mentioned.

Can't beat free. Protests aside, I have to admit this is a smart, unexpected move on their part.

There's nothing to forgive or forget because I don't freaking care. Nor should anyone else that's not in his family or financially contracted with him by some means. People need to get lives.

yeah i guess buying his game in a sense is supporting his unethical activity. it is his business not your wallet right? there was a good reason advertisers dropped him from their payroll... morality. if it was a politician who did the same thing it would mean the end of their career but not if it were tiger woods.
Except he's not a politician. He's part of an entertainment business that is completely voluntary for fans to follow. He's not part of the government which ultimately affects our livelihoods. Buying his game does nothing other than support EA and Tiger's efforts to make money off his career. It has nothing to do with his sex life, so quit intermixing the two.

So you may not agree with what he did morally, but it really doesn't matter what you or I think because it's none of our concern. Move on to things more relevant in your life.

It amazes me how Ubi is stubbornly sticking with this DRM. I mean, this shit is getting bad and until they fix it completely or remove it, they're conveying that customer satisfaction simply does not matter.
You're obviously new to the ways of the game industry. Customer satisfaction doesn't really matter. Which part of "no refunds" don't you understand? This industry is built upon this principle. While I certainly hate this new DRM scheme, the games that use it aren't the first to ever ship broken or unplayable or even remain as such.
Confrontational much? I'm not new to gaming by any stretch, but thanks for the foolish assumption. Even still, I'll forever be woeful about the counterproductive business practices companies like Ubisoft employs. The point is they should care about customer satisfaction, because in this case their sales are hurting because of it.

Chillax people. It's an MP-only game anyway and I think this is just to ensure that people won't buy this game expecting otherwise. It's just a way to ensure people are aware before they purchase.

Every class has it is all. If it was restricted to Assault or something then it would be 1/10th that number. I have like 308 dogtags without even trying and the server probably hasn't registered another good 200 or so.

Another amusement is how high the 40mm kills are, just ridiculous.
Even with everyone having a knife... When I'm on a server, I only occasionally see <Combat Knife> so it's still surprising to see it's in 2nd place. People sure are stabby mofos.

I agree about the 40mm and the M60 though. I'll use them from time to time and you can definitely tell they pwn more than other weapons.

I can't believe the Knife kills are that high. I have more Knife kills than all my friends combine and in no way does it contribute to that percentage of my kills (relatively speaking). That's crazy.

Map Pack 2? What, was Map Pack 1 included in the original game or something?

I'm looking forward to the new gametypes on these maps. New maps entirely a cool, but a new approach to familiar maps a neat too.

Sometimes DICE have weird priorities. With loud reports of glaring balance issues and various bugs, they will find something completely irrelevant that no one cares about then fix that. And claim it as a victory.

Yeah they've always been just plain strange that way, going all the way back to BF1942.
Right. Meanwhile the M60 can wipe out an entire squad with half a clip, Hind gunners can wipe out an entire team and snipers are one shot whores (in HC at least). It must have been opposite day when they listed out all of the issues and prioritized them.

Quite ironic then, that after around 10 hours of play the beta of this game has shown the most promise that I can recall since playing World of Warcraft in late 2004 (although, obviously, the two games are worlds apart in theme and - yes - in gameplay terms).

That's also an indicator of it's biggest problem, shows promise but delivers little.

Sort of like on a kid's school report the teacher doesn't want to come out and say, "at the moment little Jonny is below average."
I couldn't disagree more. Sure Warcraft appeals to the masses, but there are plenty of hardcore gamers who have put countless hours into it and enjoyed them. In my mind, if sir thinks this is nearly as entertaining as WoW (in MMO terms), then I'm excited to hear it.
