    EA Play is terrible app... it has build in forced HW acceleration... according to MSI AB runs at 60fps and hugs the GPU at 20-35% usage...

    November 12th for those rich or gullible muppets who will pay an extra €30 for the privilege of playing ONE week before all other €60 buyers. Absolutely crazy premium for an extra week.

    For those people that intend or would normally buy the DLC then it makes sense to get the Gold version which includes the season pass and early access.

    Nothing but lies and deceit, i think HH has turned to the dark side. :)

    2 days left for pre-install and yes i'm one of those muppets paying a £100 for game i haven't even played.

    To be fair though i do own every single BF title and there all deluxe or top versions and i feel that i must keep up with the game or at least with the most hours put into is BF by far until i started playing WoW.

    I still think i have more BF time than WoW time played.

    A lot of the beta videos on YT look like they were having a lot of fun. Yes the beta was severely buggy and i don't know why they went for this release date as the beta was more like an alpha.

    Seriously if half those bugs remain on release then EA/Dice will get hammered for them.

    Being able to enter a zipline and a car at the same time was one of the worse bugs. People put the cars on the ziplines and then drive away to the other side of the map, once you exit the car you start flying across the map all the way back to the zipline but you also travel upwards so you fly higher and higher until you reach the top of the zipline.

    When people see you flying past they assume you're using some form of cheats.

    Net code was awful with helis and planes lagging all over the place.

    Using a knife was also broken with 90% of the time failing to do the animation needed to one shot people so people could just turn around and shoot you.

    Lifts were seriously bugged with people falling through them and getting stuck in the shaft. Doors would open and then close before you even had time to enter them.

    I'm pretty sure there was a lot more than that but those are the worst ones i saw.

    I suppose pre-order idiots like me will get to beta test it before it's released proper, they have one week to iron out any major issues.

    Same can be said about the €60 buyers. I bet I can buy this a couple months later for half of that.
