    Don't pre-order for a Beta key - the pre-order/cancel scam has completely f***ed the beta key deal, and they aren't sending them out any more, regardless (obviously) of your intention.

    Enjoying the beta map and game mode, although the field of vision feels too tight. Still can't fly hrlicopters for toffee though.

    Think I'll just switch everything off.

    Really fun so far, although I'm struggling to kill anything with the sniper rifle. Can't seem to get the right adjustment for bullet drop.

    I was hoping that spotting before sniping would give me a clue since that's what it's supposed to do in reality (isn't it?) but it doesn't seem to.

    Any tips?

    Another thing about he sniper rifle is from what I can tell different rifles have very different bullet drop rates. The last one you unlock has very little drop whereas the m24 drops by quite a lot.

    However keep the fire button held down after the shot leaves the rifle and you'll be able to watch the path the bullet takes and where it hits so you can correct for your next shot.

    Pretty sure some clever clogs running by the name of HADDOCK- El MuErko knifed me yesterday as I was busy reviving a squadmate... thanks for that!

    Think I'll just switch everything off.

    workaround to increase your FoV so you might not get stabbed when reviving someone.

    Think I'll just switch everything off.

    or you could just wait for the full release when they're putting a slider in the video options

    I'm just trying to decide wether to go for PC or PS3 version, it seems they are not doing a PC demo though. Battlefield had always been better on PC, but I just had concerns that Bad Company 2 might suffer if it was more of a console port instead of a 'proper' PC Battlefield game.

    PC version is great. The only thing that suffers console style is you can't see your ping during the game.

    But everything that makes battlefield, battlefield, is here.

    I know its kinda late for this (lol) but if you run the game as admin you can/could see your ping as well.

    Assuming you are in Vista, right click on the BFBC2Game file in your installed game folder and select run as admin. After that it will show ping to every server.

    Military snipers IRL rarely make that much-fabled "one shot, one kill". Most of the time it takes one or more shots to put a bullet on the target.

    I've just ordered this 4 RE4L (as opposed to ordering and canceling for to play the beta...).

    I have a (some) question(s) that I would really appreciate (an) answer(s) to!

    How do I find a server that isn't full of (cheating) pricks?

    What the hell is a clan and how the hell can I find one that wouldn't be full of cheating, sweary, teenage pricks?

    What are, realistically, the things that a person playing this game who has almost no experience of online shooty-games should do?

    Pweeze?

    ^^ The answer to the first two questions is to play with local guys. People here are pretty decent. Or you can find a few servers that you like where you get good ping and people are nice and polite and add them to favorites. It will be a bit trial and error for a few days but after that you are pretty much set for life.

    As for the last question, I'd say be a medic, use the spot button, stay with your squad, throw down medkits and revive people when they die. Even if you dont get many kills you can still help out A LOT by doing those things.

    IMO Medic is probably the most noob friendly class.

    @ranbir. Sorry misread that. I thought you meant seeing ping on the server browser. :p

    Dont want to advertise, but Rogue Tribe will be setting up a top line 32 plyr server (rackage run) which will be ready by release. We don't tolerate pricks lightly and anyone who has been part of our BF2/Bf2142/First Strike/ETQW servers will testify. It will be sympathetically admined, yet we will not mess about with eejots as usual.

    You are more than welcome to come and check us out on launch.

    caveat; Other clans may also runs servers of a similar quality...

    It would seem DICE want my money and I want to give them it, now to just decide where to order from.

    The people I usually play these sort of games with aren't making great noises tho', I think they'll be playing CoD4 'til they die. There should be enough of them to form a squad with tho', and as EG folk are making good noises, all should be well :)

    Good performance on high settings. I haven't fiddled with anything else.

    Playing at 1680x1050 with a quad core q6600 and a Geforce 9800GT OC.

    Btw, this beta map is blinding.

    Sun+snow = blindness. Why aren't our troops equipped with shaded goggles?! Madness!

    Hmm i am actually a little disappointed by the performance. I play on high at 1680x1050 and dont get much more than 25-40 fps

    Well this is totally shit if you want to play some MP. Either no servers, can't connect or get kickec after a wee while.

    And I'm not sure I like the way you keep getting yanked out of the action in the SP. It's like having every third hand of a game of poker played by someone else you've never met. In another room.

    Yeah at present I can't play BC2 online, which is a shame. Still the BC2 forums say they are working on a fix that should be working tomorrow. There's also a patch coming but that's coming at the earliest next week.
