      if you are having issues joining a server (where it just says "joining") and the loading wheel isn't spinning do the following:

      Close Origin.
      Close web browser

      Update graphics card(s)

      try again, should work now, if not it may be your firewall or your operating system restricting the application (run it as administrator).

      don't forget to post bugs/issues in the forums so full launch can be smooth(ish) sailing for all.

      For me it wasnt so much that battlefield was far superior, its the fact that the people who play it were not so focused on camping a corner and hoping to earn a nuke, but rather working as a team or squad towards a common objective.

      I do enjoy how dynamic battlefield can be, between the different classes and their support roles, to the vehicles, the larger maps and destructible environments.

      I would still play the COD games if it wasnt for all the glitching and camping for kill streaks.

      So my first impressions about BF3. (xbox)
      are the graphics going to be this crappy in the real game? or is the purpose of Beta is to test server stuff. because i was not impressed with the beta really it was just about all the same but with a new map..
      it kinda makes me wish i had a PC!

      On PC I can set graphics to 'Ultra' setting. the beta alone for the two maps was almost a 4gb download, the full game is supposed to be around 20gb. I image for space purposes on the Xbox they only have it set to media settings and are more concerned with playability issues for beta.

      The videos I posted about are at medium settings (PC). I'll record a 'Ultra' settings demo tonight for comparison. i'm sure just as with BF2 and MoH beta/alpha these issues will be resolved and the graphics will look better and have fewer shutters/clitches. Just give it time and make sure to give feedback on the BF beta block

      So what you are saying Boyer is that the graphics on the Xbox will look much better than they do in the beta?? To be honest I've seen some video of the game on the PS3 & Xbox and the graphics really don't look all that hot. I really hope once the game comes out that gets fixed. Besides gameplay I'm sure a lot of people here are very interested in the game because of the graphics that BF has shown us, it's pure eye candy.

      Got a few good hours in with the BETA yesterday (xbox) and i think it has potential t be an awesome, addicting game.
      The map transtions are fantastic. the second set of objectives, thetranstion really changes your style of play,then when running ouside for he lat set, the lighting makes it fantastic.
      The maps are HUGE, almost TOO big (for consol size games)
      The mechanics feel decent, there are still a few glitches they need to iron out, i noiced peple falling under the map, also it seems like after running, then jumping to try running again you need to come to a complete stop and start running again.
      I've always perferred BF or CoD so i might be biased, but i think it's looking good.
      Classes are a little odd, but that'll come with time. If they ARE going to include spotting, it needs to be...possible.

      looks, plays, and feels like an upgraded BFBC2

      not a bad thing but the beta felt like i have played this before

      then again it was a huge map with only about 6 people running around - spent more time just trying to find the action then actually shooting

      will load it up again tonight and see

      Buy a PC if you're that concerned with "eye candy" -- I'm almost certain that the graphics will be improved in the full version vs what you're seeing in the beta but don't expect it to ever be as good as the PC videos they've been showing. That's just not going to happen.

      To me it felt like a mix of MoH and BFBC2. It's definitely different but still incredibly familiar.

      I agree so much with the others, I feel like I've played this game before. I'm hesitant to get this game after playing about 3 hours. Might change my reserve to Ace Combat or the dreaded MW3.

      Here are some things that need fixed:
      -Sound goes out periodically. I have went in and set my audio preference to headphones as I play on Astro's, and it still goes out 2-3 times/match.
      -Couldn't get a game if I partied up with friends. Go solo, and you jumped right into a match.
      -Spotting rarely worked
      -They need to fix if your own teammates aim a laser sight/flashlight in your face it shouldn't affect you, only the enemy. I know this is simulated battle, but my teammates were doing it on purpose last night and it was really pissing me off.
      -EVERYONE LIES PRONE ON DEFENSE. Killcam after killcam I'd get picked off by someone laying against a rock in the grass. or HALF THERE DAMN BODY WAS IMBEDDED INTO A ROCK!!!

      [steps off soapbox]

      I'll judge it more once I can get more friends in the matches with me, but playing solo with teammates who don't know what the hell they are doing has ruined this game day 1.

      wow, glad I haven't made up my mind yet. I'll give the beta a try tomorrow when it's released, but so far it's sounding like GOW3 for a while, and maybe MW3 after that. maybe. GOW3 just has me so pleased!

      no prone = lots of people would be whining like when BFBC2 came out

      i mean, on defense you hide the best you can and wait for the offense to come at you (bro)

      are you saying there is no way at all to see them before you get killed if they are proned?

      this game will irritate the casual COD fan - i feel its more realistic and its not easy to see the enemy (like it should be) when they are defending the bomb site

      I was impressed (graphically) with BC2 on the XBOX, and this looks like it will improve on that standard. Gameplay-wise, if it improves on BC2 (which I had no problems with) it will be great.

      this is how i feel with EVERY COD game after COD4. "Oh, i see they still have that same set-piece/texture/sound effect/model from COD4 in WAW/MW2/BLOPS/MW3" The COD series feels like a business experimentation with how to spend as little as possible on developing a game while still raking in record shattering profits. The game is well past it's "best if played by" date, imo.

      all of those are beta issues that will more then likely get fixed before release.

      BF2 had prone. BFBC2 didnt. it should have. it's more realistic. and there are a lot of graphic issues that will be addressed by the time the game comes out.

      did anyone else get blinded by snipers scope glare whos backs were to the sun or we under a dark bridge, something I think needs to be addressed too. I somewhat agree with the prone issue stated above, but its something that needs to be in the game, and those people who spend the whole round laying on one rock will learn when they get a mortar strike dropped on them.

      I can't wait to play the beta. I just really hope the graphics are up to par with the likes of MW. I have to admit I'm a graphic whore , and love my games to look good. Don't get me wrong I want good gameplay as well, but if it has good gameplay and mediocre graphics, I lose interest fast.

      Playing this game reminds me why I never really liked BF games.. Too spread out, too much running, jerky animations. Hopefully this is just beta, because MOH MP looks wayyy better than this. Probably due to smaller maps..

      That's because BF2 is vehicle centric. However I've been playing "infantry only" servers for the past 3 years...some maps are better than others for boots on the ground, especially for 64 player maps, such as Karkand and Jalalabad.

      Why would you want to do infantry only? Vehicles make these games what they are.
      Corrado: because I always wanted to get heckled by elitist pricks over the internet.

      LOL. Sounds like this is the game for me... tactical movement > running + Spray and pray... I HATE all the other games out there...

      That would have driven me nuts if I was running a sniper setup on defense.
      I don't know any sniper that doesn't go prone in most situations (and I actually know 1 real actual scout sniper and a few of his friends)

      i mean, on defense you hide the best you can and wait for the offense to come at you (bro)
      I loved finding a good hiding spot on the giant 64 player maps in BF2. In Battlefield games, it's not 'camping' it's called being a ****ing sniper... This is how war is. snipers sit in the dark and kill a lot of good soldiers before they're found. At least with this game, you can now fire a rocket at a building and destroy their perch.

      This statement makes me want it even more.

      I think I will get it on PC. Just waiting to get my new monitors home.

      I never got it either, but sometimes I did feel like not getting raped by planes on some maps
