If its not working, it says wrong password on the left side. If it works, it starts the game (check bottom left), but you can still enter a password.
I think it does not work on the US servers, which are what I was trying, I accidently joined an EU server and it worked. Game was pretty slick, until I got my 15 min connection disconnect. :mad: Oh well, I'm sure they'll fix it.

ROFL the EOD robot is THE SHIT! It can arm and disarm MCOMs and has a little torch on the end that you can kill guys with...sooo much fun when nobody knows what the hell it is. People just look at it, then it rolls up and melts your face lol.

Rush is just not for you then, no biggie. There times I like to tun around freely, and there are times I would like to focus on one objective.
For me, it gets pretty boring playing the same mode repeatedly. That's why I perfer Mixed Mode servers.

Caspian Conquest is the real BF3 though.
You didn't really understand what I said, nor why they used Metro as the main map... but that's okay.

Has anyone checked the leaderboard? How does Projectzero101 and some other guys get 10k+ and 20k+ points on one metro match?

And the next person down will have a fraction of that score.

Just played Caspian in EA testing US Multiplay #03 (East) for the past hour and 20 minutes.
Damn. Just awesome. First round I had a 7kill stream with the abrams, got to fly the jet but didnt get any kills with it.
Pretty cool how vehicles get disabled instead of blowing up instantly, gives you time to run! lol.
I cant wait for the full game with no glitches and more maps.

My eyes are sore.

Anyone else have BF3 installed on a SSD? The load screen only shows for a second or two then your in game! Thats how it should be (*cough* Deus Ex)
pretty much the same for me on my ssd. I even have time to customize my loadout and still wait 25 seconds to spawn.

Mine just hangs on joining server after I put in the password. It doesn't work. I've tried all night. I'm gonna kill myself. I have to go to bed. I have work in the morning. :(

probably tking and reviving. A lot of this was going on, I would decline the revive and tk that person incessantly until they got the point. On the other hand they could have just killed 40+ people and got a shit ton of ribbons each worth 200 minimum points.

Well I think the main thing is the overuse of bloom and brightness. Everything is just too damn bright. It was the same with BC2. So hopefully on release we can tweak it the same way.

Lets take for instance looking at the sun. Yeah it's a cool effect and adds to the realism and all that shit. But I don't want it in my shooter. I don't want a hyper-realistic game. I want something that's fun, not something I'll get frustrated with because I die to some moron while the sun was in my eyes.

Just not necessary.

No server I've joined yet has FF=on. And I've tried to kill people with no result.

thats the pass?
yes, it appears theres a couple that have updated to a different password, but Ive been using Appletini for awhile with a lot of games joined.

make sure you use filter options for caspian only with empty slots, new servers restart all the time.

Odd. Most every rush server I join is a clusterfuck of tking. Like the call of duty noobs just shoot through their team and expect them to live.

I got into some Euro servers using the "Appletini" password. Make sure the a is capitalized. I had a lto of fun with it. Problem was even though I had vehicles set to invert mouse, they did not invert. So flying a jet and chopper was a chore for me.

Just like other battlefield the browser, the water, and death animations are crap. The water looks good until you move around in it or try to shoot it; It is completely static.

Its amazing how well the game runs with how pretty it is and how much stuff it has to render. If they can improve on the three things I mentioned, this game will be outstanding.

I fucking hate this game after getting some time into it. Its buggy as shit, yea, yea beta my ass... this is a sign of things to come. Love the flicker / flashing screens, thanks Nvidia... those drivers blow.

"Features" I love....
Dying 10 steps after turning a corner, love the delay in damage. One hit kills on me, when it takes a clip to kill them when shooting them in the head. Too much blur, too much bloom, clunky mechanics make this feel like a b studio game. Stutter / micro stutter that has plagued BF BC2, the game feels hitchy. About the only thing I like are the sounds, they did a great job with the sounds, too bad the rest of the game blows. Spawning when there is an enemy camping you is awesome. I love dying 10 times in a row trying to spawn. The game could change the spawn point at least. What objective? Was there a point... since everyone is just camping prone... I guess they all forgot we had a purpose not just kills.

DICE has to be the worst game developer ever. I had such high hopes... I know MW3 will be the same shit engine, same game play all over again - but seriously after the alpha and beta of this pos I guess I'll take it...I have no choice.

I played a bit of metro and some caspian. caspian almost feels like a different game. I enjoyed it and it looks great. I still can't quite get over the fact that the controls feel a bit mushy and laggy. i recall playing bc2 beta and felt the same thing but as time went on i either adjusted to it or they patched some things and i ended up really enjoying it. this has the same feel to it. hopefully the full release with some patches will make it a bit more responsive

I am 100% sure there are hacks for BF3 already, getting one shot by a pistol from long range, snipers making long range shots while moving. The people who glitch to get on top of the wall tick me off too. I sat there and kept pegging a guy at medium range with the M249, used close to a 100 rds, and he didn't take any damage....

When it comes to balance, they need to nerf flashlights, otherwise they should change the name of the game to BF3: flash light wars, being blinded from someone half a map away in braod day light is a bit much.

Edit: I played for 5 hours yesterday and did not experience the stuff I have seen people do today.

A lot of it has to be lag. I was in a game in which I kept falling through the map today. Needless to say i was promptly labeled a "hacker".

PS: Damn, why did I miss Caspian border.

Caspian is still available on some of the EU servers.

Anyone know how many cores the game uses simultaneously?

Really? You don't want the sun to blind you? This game is far far away from hyper-realistic already. I don't have a problem seeing anything.
