DICE: Battlefield 3 Beta "Mission Accomplished"

IGN quotes DICE creative director Lars Gustavsson on the topic of the Battlefield 3 open beta test. As far as putting the military shooter sequel through its paces, he's making a note here, "huge success":
"Looking at the open beta, for us at DICE it's truly been a huge success," said Gustavsson. "We could have been better in how we messaged this to the community, what we were doing and why it's not as polished as a final demo but there is a reason we called it a beta and not a demo."

"This test was done so we would get as many eyes as possible on the game code to ensure a good release, and that means hammering the back end, seeing that the servers hold up, making sure we get all the telemetry we need, that all the hooks are working and also getting a good first take on the balancing of the game. What is the score progression? How are people doing?

"But of course also Origin and Battlelog, all of these things that we need to get ready for the final ship. So for us it's been really useful and I would really say mission accomplished. Once again, yes, there is a vocal community out there but I wouldn't like to have it any other way. It's dedication and passion when people speak up and there's nothing wrong with passion."

I'm amazed by the ammount of posts complaining about aspects of the game other than the gameplay itself. BF2 had a crappy bad in game server browser. I wasn't thrilled about getting origin to play BF3, but it worked well and did so quickly. Game play was good and seemed fresh, the rush game mode was a lot of fun. I can't tell you how excited I am to have a real shooter to play again. No more Black Ops sillyness. Be glad that we all got a chance to check the game out at all without having to shell out 59.99.
