Battlefield 3 Beta Has "Hundreds" of Changes from Alpha

After visiting DICE last week, VG247 has word that the Battlefield 3 beta test promised for this month is likely still on track, and will include "hundreds" of changes and fixes since the alpha trial edition of the military shooter sequel. "Everything from gun-balancing to the placement of the objectives on the Rush map; we actually moved them around based on [the fact] that the first base was quite hard to take. We are still moving things around on that map to utilise feedback from the alpha. That’s why we’re doing it. It’s not to market the game, it’s actually to test it in a proper way. There are hundreds of things that we’ve changed since the alpha, DICE's Patrick Bach says. "Again, to the beta question, we are releasing the beta before the game and we are actually changing stuff based on that before we ship the game, even though you could argue that that’s very late close to the ship of the game, we will still have time to do, for instance, day one patches and changes to the Battlelog that will actually be game-changing." Access to the Windows version of the beta will be is guaranteed for those who preorder the game from the Origin Website.

It's sad that you put so much merit into some outside components of a game, that you're not even willing to see if the GAME itself is any good or not. I could understand if the game was shit, but unless you've played the alpha/beta, you would have no way of knowing. So you're solely basing this off of how bad you think Origin and the server browser may be. That's just being ignorant to rage about something.

I was in alpha, and posted about how I dislike the game in a very civil manner. I fail to see how I'm a raging ignorant, but thank you for your opinion. Maybe I should go around handing out personal attacks to people who disagree with myself, because apparently that is a more appropriate thing to discuss.

I'm sorry that I thought the online server browser felt like a cheezy free to play game to me? I'm sorry that I don't want to tab out or close a game to switch servers. I'll ignore the fact that the game requires 3 seperate exectables to run. I'll try to pretend Steam doesn't exist, and that it doesn't do everything Origin does better. I'll just try harder to like it in general and keep my opinions to myself, just for you.

These things are not part of the core game play, which I'm not going to get into; They do, however, have an impact on the experience. Unreal Tournament 3's interface was the feature most people attributed to it's failure... at least it HAD an interface.

Okay... so THAT was a bit of a /nerdrage. DIAF Elessar.
