"We've just updated the RO2 Beta with test fixes for the stats issues and for the no-sound bug.

We want to get some volume testing on the stats fix - tested ok in small numbers in the office, but needs volume testing. If you still have the beta installed, it should update automatically. Please report any problems you find with the stats IN THIS THREAD. But please do watch the numbers carefully - we don't need lots of "I'm sure that wasn't right, but I can't remember"

The no-sound bug should also be fixed in there, but we want to check that out too. "

"Heeey guyse, dont worry! That wasn't the full game! Only the alpha! That was a funny joke! Now help us to find glitches on the closed beta :D :D :D"

they have worked out a stats/sound patch but from what I read they want to make sure it works first before doing a full release. The patch will be working on the beta so that you can see if everything works okay and report back any problems. It's just to ensure that if there is anything wrong with the patch, it doesn't mess up the majority of players who aren't interested in testing it.

How do you do volume testing with 1000 players, out of whom 200 will respond? :confused:

Hmm, interesting. I never deleted my beta or the desktop icon, so maybe I can give it a try tonight and give them some feedback. I have to take my kid to Karate, but will hopefully be open around that. Remember guys, the more accurate feedback we give, the better the game gets.

Reason it's in beta... you can or not volunteer.. it's like something that "helps" get it solved without bothering the gaming community playing within time.. it's not a depressed crying of what does not help solve issues at all..

they tested it in office theres not many guys in there so they wanted to volume test it so if 200 play it thats volume testing pretty simple logic. At least they are trying to test it properly before release

I wonder why they didn't do it before they took my money.

You can sit here and complain while I (and a fair number of others) will help them fix it. Almost time to head home, I left Steam running and never uninstalled the Beta, so hopefully it's ready when I get there.

same reason you gave your money before waiting to see reviews on the finished product.. stuff happens..

lesson learned.. if you can't do the time.. wait on preorders till you read about the game and faults within..

Personally, my money was well spent!

That is true. It's my fault, mate, I accept it.
Lesson learned very much. Thanks TWI for teaching me.

On the other hand I'm still having fun with this game watching a very amusing patching process.
So I consider it like buying a ticket to a bizzarre circus with unexpected performers.

So well uh, my money kinda spent well either :)

No, thanks for asking. Don't see any reasons to pre-order BF3.
I'm not even sure if I buy it at all. Will decide after the release date.
But at least the visuals look pretty neat there.

Played it for only 15 minutes today then raged because of default control scheme which is unacceptable for me and can't be remapped at the time.

But we went off topic. Sorry everyone.
