    Thoughts of BF1 Beta so far?

    I haven't had any time to play the BF1 Beta (and likely won't have), so I would like to know what are the opinions so far of my fellow BF vets?

    I dont know what the deal was with the weapon thing. That was my very first two load ins and I thought maybe I didnt set up the kits correctly or I didnt check a box, but when I went into a third server I had them. Later they were gone again in a rush map. I didn't even have hands It was just open space in front of me with no shooting. I couldn't even throw grenades. Yesterday though it never happened again and someone else mentioned that it was patched after a late release update on the server side.
    i like your thought.

    I play it from time to time. Now that there are not so many people playing its possible to find less populated servers in the server browser who remain like that for a long time and dont immidiately crowd up.
    It's just so much more fun and tactical to play a slower paced game in a 64 player map with max 32 players.

    Anyone still playing BF1? I've been having an itch to revisit the game lately.

    I was struggling to get spawn with weapons but somehow, I figured it out.

    Can any one guide me with our team sniper position please? I'm unable to locate them.

    Tried to search on path and mountains till now!

    I'm still really pissed about the skip revive... got to play some more hours and still didnt get or see anyone get revived (almost no one playing as medic also).

    I really, really don't know why they didn't use the map that was played during the alpha. It was about a thousand times better than this one is for the beta. Honestly, if this beta map was the only experience I had with the game, I would be pretty against the game as a whole.

    Holy moly, I hope that doesn't happen. As much as I don't like servers with fast vehicle respawn, I do wish to have servers with limited player slots because I am not a big fan of 64 players in a map, choosing to go to the same flag

    So server option rumors are blowing up on BF1.

    The rumor right now is that the servers are all going to be "virtualized" and "locked down" to the point that you can rent a server and change its name and some game modes and that's about it. You cannot stream things, like punkbuster databases, or use RCON tools, like the tools that auto-balance servers, give stats, use ping limiters, and such.

    It's just shy of the IW.net fiasco in that there are servers, but everything is so locked down it doesn't make sense to rent one.

    I dont know, it's just really going around right now and we should hear something more soon.

    I dont know, after playing the scout and medic role I really enjoyed those and had a lot of fun. Maybe Im just not an assault guy in BF1.

    DICE said they plan to nerf the light tank, so that thing will be useless on release.

    After the beta Ive been thinking about it a few days and after the first day I had a lot of fun. I think if anyone got it I don't think they will be disapointed, like BF4 was.

    Yeah I had more fun with it than I did with hardline, and I like it much more overall for being different and unique. I'm still really pissed about the skip revive... got to play some more hours and still didnt get or see anyone get revived (almost no one playing as medic also).
    I agree with you guys on every point. I also find myself always spawning in the top flags because the others are so far away from everything. As much as I was excited I will also wait on it.

    I know that they were saying during the alpha they wanted to work on addressing as many of the issues and concerns people raised. So... guess I'll keep my fingers crossed?

    For what it's worth, I still find it to be more enjoyable than any time I spent playing the Hardline beta and it's still leagues ahead of the Battlefield 4 launch. It's interesting that I never saw anything about the weapons disappearing when I played. However, I'm guessing that was a server stress issue or something they changed at some point? I have not played yet since the beta went open to everyone. It seems like that issue only showed up after the floodgates opened to the world.
