Singleplayer though. Would be cool to have a MP night map, the lighting engine will reallly shine.

It looks beautiful and life-like, no question about that. It'll be interesting to see how it plays when they release a demo, and let's hope this Origin ordeal isn't as bad as it sounds at the moment.

No conquest map in the beta? Are they kidding me?!  ???
The CQ was just a PR gag to get all the preorders of the BF2 fanbase...  :'(

Won´t be able to run it, don´t want to bother with Origin, don´t care about modern warfare-pimp-your-gun-stuff, no 64- player Conquest maps and basically the Alpha with a new name: No thanks.

they dont need to run 64 players maps to test their game, 32 does just fine, testing server stabilities etc.

64p on one map wouldnt help in balancing/design purposes.. they handle that fine by themselves.. beta is mostly for stabiliy/connection issues, where 32 works just as fine.

beta is not for you to play and have fun. it's a last check before release.

True, but since there is no sign of a Demo for BF3, it would have been nice to see if this aspect of the game lives up to what it promises.

Forgive me, but I don't take comments made by payed news-sites and devs for face value any more. I've been disappointed way past that sentiment.

I think it is a bit disappointing there wont be a true 64 conquest map in the public beta, since, that's one of these figure head features they are championing. However, I'm excited to play regardless of the match size or game type, I wanna know how BF3 is going to play out.

Yeah, that's probably what RO 2 guys thought, too. Look what happened to them...

The only thing that needs to be stress tested is the front end. Of all the previous BF games I haven't had any problems with instability when playing. The problem was mostly related to the account servers, friend lists and server browsers.
