    Didn't they just release it for everyone to play so it's bloated? Kinda like how it was when the servers originally came up for metro last tuesday?

    Just tried my first round of CB, seems fun so far. Definitely bigger battles compared to Metro.

    oh, and I finally got to see a loading screen. Never got to see one in Metro!

    Thanks to Elyaan for the great sig!

    I think this is the purpose of the BETA to see how much abuse servers can handle. Not worried at all about stability for launch but ofcourse it would be fun to be playing in a stable environment already now

    And I would agree with you Diurdi

    Just to clarify, can anyone tell me how many players are supported in multiplayer on consoles (Xbox 360)? I've heard 24, 32, 48... I would really like to know if it's the same number as BF:BC2.

    Also: Is the release date for console on Oct. 25th as well?

    I believe that the player count for consoles is 24. It should also be out on the same date

    25th in the United States 29th in Europe

    So it's 24 per team.. 24 vs 24? Or 24 total players including both teams? Sorry I'm a little confused, 24 just seems small to me.. That's what, three squads per team?

    Maybe it's not as bad as it sounds. I just don't want to be stuck in a huge map not being able to find anybody.

    That multiplayer trailor looks great and everything but isn't it just going to end up witha queue of people waiting for planes and tanks etc. like the old BF games? Who would want to be running around on the ground when people are flying jets?

    It is 12v12 for 24 total on consoles. Yeah, that seems like an extremely low player count for BF maps. Caspian Border is also not available for consoles, so you don't really have to worry about that map.

    Yeah, that sort of thing is always a given for a BF game. There will be people sitting there camping the jets.

    However, jets are largely useless against infantry. The only things that need to worry about them are the larger armored vehicles and other jets.

    i dont think you will see that, because theres several Anti-Air weapons available.

    like the engineer gets the Stinger Bazooka which is anti-air pretty early.

    Oh, you'll see it. There where plenty of AA options in BF2 and you saw it all the time. The jets do have flares to help avoid stingers. Honestly, as long as you aren't flying low and slow, or can't adequate maneuver to evade, you'll be fine.

    This is why you need to find a good server and clan/community that discourages that.
    I'm still thinking about it...

    open beta is often considered as last beta stage, final version isn't much different from release version.

    Caspian Border is available for consoles...just not on the beta for consoles. The PC maps are different than the console maps. The console maps have been scaled back to account for the lower teams and it has worked in BFBC2 so it will work fine for BF3. With that said now that I have an awesome job I might throw together a computer that can run it on ultra once I finish paying a few things off.

    Open betas are for stress testing if it wasnt they would call it a demo. The beta that is currently up is an old build and is nowhere near the final product.
