If we would play the game it was meant to be played, we would play Alpha 4 and add some guns to it and it would be almost perfect. I'll illustrate this for you briefly, being a more senior player now:
What we thought the Beta would deliver to us:
-Everything from Alpha 4
and the way we were used to it
and the way things were intended for by the dev team working on this game prior to this dev team
-ironing out some minor flaws with the folding map
What they said the Open Beta was there for:
-Feedback taken into consideration and gradually added with each OB release or as soon as possible
-Gathering other data to stabilize the game(I think)
-hopefully more activity(Oh I now know what Bermig meant with that)
What we actually received:
-Cropped content from Alpha 4:
-no loadout select screen, it was removed and replaced with a class select screen that didn't even restrict the special classes until OB 1.6
-folding map gone, now replaced with an instant overlay(someone please tell me the point of this)
-MG totally changed to behave like loose IS, when it was totally the correct feeling in Alpha 4
-I cannot say that we've been getting more maps, some haven't been ported, so we lack those, others added some to the game.
-We got some new weaponry
-They sure as hell got rid of the issues with the map LOL
-completely broken gun balance
Additional point: The game feels completely different to the Alpha, most of the immersion is gone.
What is left of their promises:
-Aside from 2 suggestions made by me, no other community suggestion has ever been taken into consideration and put into the game
-I don't know how much of a help the crash dumps are
-It looks better for sure now, but sometimes I don't think every tree added was an absolute must have
-The activity is low as it's always been, sadly.
