Did anyone else partake of the open beta? It had its issues - primarily with matchmaking and longggggg lobby times - but was a whole lotta fun. I sunk a good 20 hours into it and was pleasantly surprised at the large number of players who actively communicated. I still have some concerns about player base and game longevity, but (if I can tear myself away from Star Wars Battlefront) I think it played itself into a day-one purchase for me.

The destructibility of most of the environment really made it tough to camp out and the weapons were pretty well balanced. By the end of the beta I had unlocked all available characters and each provided a separate and unique skill to a good/communicating team. Hopefully they make a few tweaks to the riot shield and don't screw it up like usual Ubisoft multiplayer games.

No participation for me. Though i am going to download the Battlefront Beta. Any idea when it will be available for preload on the XBONE?

I understand the Battlefront beta will be available for download on the day it is due for release ... so no pre-load. October 8th. The Playstation Twitch stream specifically mentioned there would be no codes released prior to that. I think it is around 7 GB so it shouldn't take *too long* to dl, provided we all aren't trying at the same time!

That was a really good beta can't wait till release date
What console will you be playing on? Or PC? I have a group of guys from Northern Ireland I game with on Xbone but the time difference (6 hours) means their late night session is my still-at-work time, which limits our game time together.

R6 Siege is definitely a game that highly rewards teamwork and communication.

A dear friend sent me a code for RS6, so I downloaded it, but I didn't actually play it. So I give it a 7/10.

So after all 3 betas got counted up I ended up spending close to 65 hours playing in them. Suffice to say I'll be getting the game tomorrow. :9:

From my brief time with the beta, this game might be worse than Battlefield. A feat I thought to be impossible.

This might be the most glowing positive review for a game I've ever seen. I'll have to check this title out.

Are you referring to connection issues? Then yes, they definitely had some serious problems finding games in the first beta, and in the third (open) beta it reared its head a few times. My friends playing the full game since last night have said the match making is just fine now, although the betas had us sweating it.
