Battlefield 3: Were Squad features the worst problem in beta?

If you consider your experience with the recent Battlefield 3 beta to have been a frustrating one overall, you’ll be interested to know that developers DICE has now listed a top ten of issues that have occured in the beta trial for the game.

Some of these problems are affecting all three platforms of the game, while others are specifically related to one version, according to DICE’s notes. The developers have stated that the number one problem that occured in the beta was in relation to squad formations, and the fact that players had a lack of flexibility in terms of sticking with your squad during play. DICE has insisted that the squads feature in Battlefield 3 will be improved on significantly in the final game and will include features such as being able to stick with a squad in future games providing that it doesn’t over-balance the server.

Other problems listed by DICE include not being able to modify any settings whilst waiting for a game on the beta. You’ll be pleased to hear that DICE has already included this option into the retail version of the game, so that’s one less thing to worry about. DICE has also confirmed that an issue with the kill cam featured in the beta in which the camera would zoom out too far or out of the map, has also been fixed for the final build of the game.

You can view the full list of beta problems over at the official Battlefield blog here. Take a look through it and give us your feedback on it. Do you agree with DICE that squad flexibility was the biggest problem in the beta, or do you think that there was a problem that was even worse in your opinion? The full game releases on October 25th, so it’s good to see DICE list problems and attempt to fix all before launch.
