Beta is fucking boss right now. There is a bit of small lag spikes that occur here and there. But that's the beta aspect of it.
Beta only allows you to use a special loadout for each class. They are Assault, Engineer, Support, and Recon. Nothing rolls over until the actual released game. So everything current is just mahem.
When I first hopped into a match at 2am Monday I got in my pride and joy, the M1 Abrams. I was truckin a long in Conquest capping bases and defending what I could. The bullet drop is completely different from the other BF games, as of right now. Due to that, it was a little easier getting the kills with vehicles and the recon classes. After my first death, I was on the board 7-1. Before I deployed again, I noticed a teammate in a transport. I changed to an engineer class to repair him while he was dodging the enemy Cobra's missiles. By the time the pest was taken care of we had a full transport: driver, 2 mounted gunners, 2 bay hatch gunners. We went to the top of the skyscraper and noticed a bundle of enemies camped out up top. We went down tot he bottom and circled the building for a good 10 minutes...all in all, 30+ confirmed kills.
After the building was gone the pilot landed the transport on another building on the other side of the bridge in enemy territory. We get out and I knifed a guy who was popping grenades off the ledge and took his Support class (which has an semiautomatic grenade launcher) and started unlocking it into a tank down below, I didn't get the kill but I got the vehicle disabled and 2 assists from my teammate finished them off with an rpg.
The KNIFES! You can attempt to deflect someone's knife turn it back on them. I found this out due to me grabbing someone's neck, turning them around, and shoving it into his chest. He grabbed my hands and pulled it and then jabbed it into my neck... I WAS PISSED!!! I wanted revenge. I had someone call out coordinate points to where this mofo was whenever he was spotted. Well, he was near the bank on his side of the river. I thought this was my chance. I found a battleboat on our spawn base and cleared the bridges for the rest of our tank to go through. I ran that motherfucker down... with a boat!! Final kill of the match. I was satisfied. You need to get this game dude. Graphics, weapons, classes, maps, everything will be better on the 29th when they solve all the beta issues.
Death, to the Republic
