The game is fun enough I might consider buying it. Except it keeps crashing. Every 5-30 minutes it just hangs. And being familiar with EA's patching schedule, I expect my issue to be fixed by 2013. At the soonest.

I get the same issue, usually happens when something big happens like the explosion down into the metro tunnels or the end of a round.

I get the issue where when I start a game, it only gives a blank screen with the exception of that cyan rectangle thing on the upper right.

The only way to fix this is restarting my computer... =/

Odd. Some people has been asking me that. The servers just appear for me. Be sure to check your filters (for example, don't have rush mode filtered while looking for Caspian Border - it is a conquest map).

Nice, just got the browser to filter Caspian for me, and I even see the 64 man servers. Initially the filters didn't work so I didn't have any set and it was only showing Metro. :banana:

If you want to see all the caspian servers make sure you don't have any player-limit filters on. Most of the caspians are full.

Wait, we need new profiles when the game comes out (I mean of course not keeping the points/unlocks from the beta, I mean like the profile name itself)?

So 64 players runs great. Right up til I actually try to interact with anything. But as long as I don't want to shoot at anything or climb into or out of any vehicles there seems to be no lag!

But don't worry, guys. It's only because they're stress testing their servers. It's beta after all. They'll have it polished by release.
