Battlefield 4 Beta: why you should probably wait for the actual game

Well the potential hours of frustration that you may spend simply trying to get the game to load up are not worth the withering amounts of broken content that you’re offered in return. to make it clear that this is not an attack on the game itself. Unless you’re a big DICE supporter who specifically wants to help the developers by giving them an idea of some of the more glaring bugs and issues they may have with server support through the forums, or, you’re willing to accept that the beta is not the final product, you will not enjoy the beta

I agree with the author. This is a Beta, so if you jump in expecting it to play like a demo for a full retail game, then you will be sorely disappointed. It is a Beta which means it will have bugs, glitches, and server lag/connection issues etc.

When you encounter these issues, as a Beta tester it is your job to then report these to DICE, so they can get note the issues and fix them before release. If you don't report the problems to DICE, then you do everybody a disservice.

If that is you, then it is better that you wait for the Demo, and stop whining about a Beta.

Totally agree with your comment. I've actually been playing the beta, even though I do have severe problems with lags, like literally, my GPU runs that beta at 60 FPS, and suddenly I jump, it lags, lol, or if I even shoot it lags.

Battlefield 3 beta had so many problems and that game turned out to be really good. Dice supports their games far after release.

I've accepted it to be a mess, the collision detection cursor should be changed though.

I am just hoping for better performance at launch. I have no issue with BF3, everything maxed.
BF4? I get roughly half the performance and, weirdly, no matter what the settings, I seem to hit the same frames. BF4 at 1080 with everything on plays just as poorly as it at 720 with no AA and everything on medium.
Definitely an optimization thing.
This is with the beta drivers, mind you. I was constantly under ten frames without them.
