Beta starts soon? Cool, might be fun to get in if my beta code would work!

Level 1

Frankly I am generally disappointed by your Beta:

POSITIVE: (It will be done soon!)
The speed, the fluidity of the movements, the mechanics of the game, the many options with the characters and the classes. Your Beta is a Bo3 better!
NEGATIVE: Next time, think of tuning your violins with the psn because with your beta download just before (why ??) the starting date of the test beta and the maj 1.19 of the psn there were more than 60 giga to download on blow ! (Your beta was 32 Gb just that!). So actually you will tell me that in Europe networks work and fold it between 1 and 3 hours but I'm in Africa ... It took 17 hours to download and the hard drive of my playstation just died last Friday afternoon ! Perfect timing for playing beta isn't it ?
So tell me why did not we let us download before ??? Couldn't you let us more time ! (It would have given the impression that you are organized and professional !) What does it cost you ? Ah, ... unless you're "in the juice" like every time, which explains the sloppy COD games that you sell us diamons on the nail ? (yes I'm french ! and we love our expression)

Another major disappointment : your servers are always so inefficient. The duels are all and all the time distorted ! How do you want us to have a good time ? We are all raging in our helmets because of your servers ... listen to us a little ... you will understand !

So, I'm sorry but I'm going to change my tone because I feel that we do not speak the same language : You don't give a ***** about hardcore players Am I right ? Why should we all play in "normal", totally "stupid mode" where we empty loaders to knock down enemies with servers that do not follow ?? Will you think of us one day or are we destined to be your negligible amount ??

I add another absurdity: the search and destruction in 5 against 5 ??! Why ? Already at 6 we have to do two groups.
