They won't push it back. Their key strategy is to get it out before the new COD. The games badass. Yeh it has bugs but battlefield is badass. I've loved all the past ones and I know this one will be better. Your only playing one map in one game type. Go back to playing CoD and Halo if those don't work for you.

Here is a list of bugs that I have found that would of taken 30min to an hour to find without having an open or even a closed beta for that matter.

1. When you go to change the brightness it says to change it until you can barely see the picture. Well, there is no picture...

2. When you go to change your controls there is no control diagram so you have no idea what you are changing...

3. Sometimes while sprinting you stop sprinting and you can't sprint anymore. The only way to be able to sprint again is to walk backwards a step and then sprint again...

4. Sometimes the bullets will freeze in mid-air in front of your gun while shooting causing a "lightsaber effect"...

5. Many many dropped servers...

6. Major lag from when a person dies to when it pops up with a message verifying your kill...

7. Sometimes when you are aiming down the site of the handgun and you un-scope and then try to aim down the site again it won't let you, the only way to aim down the site again is to switch back and forth between guns and try again...

8. Sprinting while you are reloading gives a floating effect and it feels like you are on roller blades or ice skates.

9. There is no time limit or score limit so you have no idea when you are about to lose a match (if you are attacking)...

10. Whenever you die there is no respawn timer, you kind of just sit there hitting the "A" button wondering when you will spawn...

11. The graphics are choppy at times...

12. Sometimes when under a tree the sunlight that shines through the leaves will disappear and immediately reappear causing a big flash on the screen sort of like the flash from a camera...

13. Sometimes while spawning your weapons will automatically have the laser dot enabled and it gets really annoying having to disable it after every spawn.

Just something that has me wondering, if there are this many bugs that they couldn't figure out on their own then why not have us test the vehicles as well in the beta? What is the point of making a beta with so many immediate and obvious problems only to get flooded with beta tester feedback telling them problems they already know about...


I am sure I am missing some, but that is what I found within the first hour of gameplay.

Ah, nice.

Get yourself a fast card, too. You'll be able to take more pictures continuously and upload and download times onto your computer will be quick. This one is worth the $23. I have 2 of them and they're great. They physically cant get any faster, they're limited by USB technology . Just get one and don't loose it

Fuel mileage on the 323 is back up to normal of 30+ on the highway! That VANOS repair was worth the trouble for sure!

Good Morning KC Fanatics!

I would love to get on it's a great mod, it reduces clutch travel by changing the angle of the assembly. Kinda like a SSK.

LS1 weighs nearly the same as that S62, and for 11k i'm sure you could have just a touch more than 395hp...

I will never and I mean never put a non bmw engine in my M3. I hate to be a purist because it isn't the best when it comes to making financial decisions but that's how I am.

The stock hp from the s62 isn't anything to write home about but the potentail is there. I've seen NA S62's putting out 650+.
