6th of May EA and DICE, the Swedish counterparts, released the closed beta of Battlefield Heroes. The closed beta feedback also included information that were concerning about how RAM Hungry the game was. It also welcomed reports of various bugs and faults.
Now the EA is claiming that they have fixed the problem related to further beta releases. They will be releasing the open beta very soon.
The first scandal was when the server crashed while people tried to obtain a select number of closed beta keys. As an aftermath the players had to solve the riddles to obtain keys. Disputes erupted over the riddles release times. The website managers failed to open up to the fans waiting for the information on the website.
However, it is a good sign of bad publicity that too many players rushed to get closed beta keys. This proves to be the future success of the game.
Many are expecting the release within the next 3-4 months and always checking the official website for any sign of release dates.
Someone started a thread in the forums titled “What don’t you like about the game so far?“. It’s a different question and unlike most of the other questions asked, it’s not nessasarly a positive question. We’ve all seen the “What’s your favorite part of BFBC” type questions, this one goes in the other direction. Ill list some of the responses below.
The thing I don’t like so far is that when you get close to someone you can’t tell if their friend or foe. It especially is bad when you round the corner and see someone staring right at you. Do you shoot and get a teamkill or flinch and get shot instead. I wish the clothing was more distinct between teams.
The M95 can’t fire through walls, it can blow fences and trees apart & When people are on those missile launchers that look like telescopes and I snipe them, they don’t die.
No prone is retarded, I cant lay down? Thats what you do in a bad company.
The weapon attributes are off, and wonky looking. The assault + SF classes weapons are too weak. Half a clip to kill someone, when has that ever been right? The one shot shotgun. Little to no down time for a reload. WTF is this little thing I spawn with a spawn of the M4? A little nit to pick, why do games always have the M60 as the end all heavy weapon. I know RAMBO, but there is another, my baby, that I feel gets left out alot, the M240B, look it up. I played BF MC a lot, and the basic gunplay feels more like Frontline 2 with its wonkyness. That being said, I am a battlefield fan first before COD4, I prefer the open battlefields to the arena of COD. But wonkyness, iron it out.
Auto injectors, I guess they probably got that from the adrenaline shot you are supposed to give yourself if you are exposed to nerve gas. Or maybe the med heart shot. That is definitely not a more than one time thing, and the one time you use it there is a chance you’ll have a heart attack. The fact that there is a auto injector tells me that they shammed out (thats a real bad company term) on the balance of the game. A one button cure all.
too much health, the assault rifles should be a little bit better, more game modes, all the house goes down not most of it, team killers, people who walks past the gold when theres a bomb on it trust me it happends alot, more ranked levels most people all ready a level 25, the shotgun wayyy over powered, mines dissaper after a while, more levels, some level are too big and when you die and your squad is dead you hav to start right back at the beginnig but there are people who like big maps and last thing is NO DEATHMATCH
My gripes are…
Some guns realy need tweeking………Some can fire though chain link fences and others can’t.
1) Pistol is too powerfull. I mean they can take 5-6 machine gun/assault shots and turn around and still kill you.
2) Knife is he same way but can kill you from 6 feet away.
3) Shotgun 1 hit kills are fine but if someone aims at my feet it should take two. When you sneak up on someone and shoot them all them do is turn
around and shoot, no aim required.
4) One class (forgot which one) has the first 2 or 3 weapon the same, stat wise. I mean come on at least adjust them a little.
5) To many shot to a door to bring them down
6) Still getting stuck in objects. plants/ small fences
7) Bradley vehicle fires alot but no real damage, also is this thing made out of a pop can. I thought it was an armor vehicle.
8 Respawns AT the gold should NOT be allowed when on offense. I had 3 enemies respawn (my opinion ) right in front of me.
9) A respawn you should have a “God” mode (can’t die or shoot anyone) for 2-3 seccond to just give you a chance. Tired of respawning only to get shot 1 second latter.
10) Need more playing styles,
11) Should be able to create you own match, and be able to play without certain weapons or vehicles.
12) Calling in an air stike sometimes they land on you because the dot was next to a leaf of a tree you were near. Should also be able to lock on a “taged” object
13) Bunny hoppers are still a problem.

Seems many people are having issues connection to 360 when playing Battlefield Bad Company. Players are reporting the error “Failed to connect to EA online”.
To their credit, EA has acknowledged the issue but I can only imagine that offers little relief to the 360 users out there who are unable to play BFBC.
“We’ve been monitoring stats non-stop and are working with several partners to locate any possible flashpoints and eradicate any hostiles we encounter.”
I’m not sure if the corny battlefield talk when addressing the issue should be comforting or worrisome for the people experiencing the connection issues.
Problems taking screen shots in BFBC?
There is an interesting discussion going on in the forums, some people seem to be having a hard time locating their Battlefield Bad Company screen shots.
Here’s a super busy thread for “BFBC tips”. Just general tips and tricks for everyday BFBC players.
While the BFBC reviews have been pretty amazing, and everyone is quick to tell you what they love about BFBC, in this thread the players voice their opinions on what they don’t like about BFBC.
Some of you may or may not know how people are getting stupid amounts of points, you know they’re cheating but you just didn’t know how they were doing it…well you do now. Keep in mind we DO NOT recommend doing this and if you get your account banned, don’t come crying to us.
The “Death or Glory” clan is recruiting Battlefield Bad Company players for the 360 and they seem to be creating a little stir on the forums, definitely one of the busier BFBC clan topics on our site.
For those of you having connection issues on the 360, EA has released a statement for you:
“We are aware that some X360 players are having issues connecting to the Bad Company servers,” acknowledges EA, saying in the theme of military message: “We’ve been monitoring stats non-stop and are working with several partners to locate any possible flashpoints and eradicate any hostiles we encounter.”
“Until we are ready to implement a permanent fix, a possible workaround is to turn off your console for approx. 20 minutes before turning it back on and connecting again.”
Any of you having connection issues with Battlefield Bad Company on the Xbox360? Apparently there are some known issues that EA is trying to resolve. Here’s a quote form them on the issue:
“We are aware that some X360 players are having issues connecting to the Bad Company servers,” read a statement on the official site.
“Weâ€™ve been monitoring stats non-stop and are working with several partners to locate any possible flashpoints and eradicate any hostiles we encounter. Until we are ready to implement a permanent fix, a possible workaround is to turn off your console for approx. 20 minutes before turning it back on and connecting again.”
The statement concludes: “We apologise for the inconvenience to those of you who are experiencing this connection issue.”
Don’t forget to stop by the Battlefield Bad Company Forum and discuss BFBC related topics with other gamers.
We also added a special area for Battlefield clans, not only for Bad Company but clans from other versions of Battlefield are also welcome.
Electronic Arts also announced that Battlefield: Bad Company, the latest Battlefield game from Digital Illusions (DICE), has shipped to retail, for Xbox 360 and PS3. Based on Frostbite, DICE’s in-house developed game engine, Battlefield: Bad Company drops gamers behind enemy lines with a squad of renegade soldiers who risk it all on a personal quest for gold and revenge. A playable demo will be available on PS3 and Xbox 360 on June 25 in North America and June 27 in Europe.
Also, Call of Duty World at War has been announced.
IGN has reviewed the Xbox360 version of the upcoming Battlefield Bad Company game from EA and given it an 8.6 out of 10.
Battlefield: Bad Company is a great addition to the long-running series, despite the fact that it leaves the comfy confines of the PC world. The added storyline gives newfound depth to the formerly shallow single-player mode, despite the fact that the dramatization pales in comparison to what weâ€™ve seen from Call of Duty 4. Where Bad Company truly shines is in its multiplayer and the technology that drives the game forward. Both raise the bar in their own right and give the competition something to strive for. In this summer relatively devoid of solid first-person shooters, Bad Company does enough to earn your hard-earned dough.
Battlefield Bad Company will be released June 25th
