It's pre-alpha, I do have to admit it was buggy for no reason at times. If it was an issue with the server or client is another story though :/ random jerkyness but it seems that at pre-alpha it can't be held against it honestly.

The game plays like butter, everything is fluid and fast, the environment itself provides plenty of cover and in the urban area. Mailboxes, rocks, trees and more all allow for a really insane section of gameplay. Add into this yearing bullets cutting through the folliage and it brings up some paranoia haha.

We should have a second round of this on Thursday, if it's a new map I'll send notes over to Sean as well on it.

So far it's a mix of the BF world old players love and the new BF that people have come into recently. I was pissed that I had to keep searching for guns though because our support guys were just committing suicide left and right.

That's pretty damn stunning for pre-alpha footage. I still think that IDTech 5 will give this a run for the money but for now this is hands down the most realistic looking game I've seen to date.

Loving the building parts being able to damage players. Even though it's 'cheap' I love the idea and how realistic they're trying to make it.

Supernova1332 1080p version here. That may change your mind about Tech 5 (good as it looks).

I guess depending on what game types and how many maps they offer is my biggest question/s atm.

I hope that entering/exiting vehicles, especially assault vehicles takes time/is animated as in the tank video. It's stupid when people are in tanks, then teleport out when the tank is almost destroyed, or rush into an enemy base with an ATV and jump in the enemy tank so quickly. If you enter a tank, or enter a helicopter, particularily if you're captaining the vehicle, it should be a commitment, not just some temporary super armour that you can just teleport in and out of. If your tank is @ 10% health the chances of you escaping the vehicle in time to repair it or run away before it explodes should be extremely unlikely. And it would make trying to ram people with the helicopter, jumping out in the nick of time impossible. As fun as that is, it's dumb. You'll have to die with the helicopter to do something that insane, hence its balanced. Passengers should be able to jump out ALMOST instantly, maybe a 1 second animation, but the pilot should have an enter/exit time of at least 5 seconds IMO. To compensate they should allow a helicopter to stay in a death spin for a longer duration before it explodes to give some extra time for the pilot to jump out.

That still gives the problem of not getting the kill. I *bleep*ing hate it when I down the vehicle but not get the kill.

So there's no more jumping? That will be awesome!
Also how fast or slow do you prone, am I going to see stupid prone tactic in close combat?

Not one shred of detail about jets, planes, helicopters? The air game was what made 1942, BF2 stand above the rest...

I would love it if they made the transport helicopters stronger. It's dumb the way it is in bc2. You pile in 8 guys. Boom. Hit by one rocket. Half of the 8 are dead, the others scattered and not where they wanted to be.

Yes but you also have to trace it first, by then it might be too late or the chopper is just acting like a spawn point for more waves.

No. Looks like they're still working on those. I do know there will be attack choppers very similar to BF2 choppers (improved, obviously).

They talked plenty about them but don't have anything ready to show yet. They are in pre-alpha so they were only going to demo so much. Jets, Attack Choppers, Transport Helicopters and the classics will all be back and even some new extras will join in.
