  • Caspian Border Map - Weekend 64-Player PC BETA Testing

    Sorry I said weekend only but it actually starts Friday afternoon over there so Friday morning here. Some are saying about 4:30pm there so 10:30am CDT here?

    Update: Baz just said they are starting to open up right now so if you can see one you should be able to attempt to join. Good luck on finding spaces. Lots of servers are supposed to come online with this map over the next few hours.

    After analyzing the data from our first round of closed Caspian Border tests, we have great news for participants in the Battlefield 3 PC Open Beta: the DICE team has decided to bring back Caspian Border for the beta’s final weekend and conduct an open large scale test of the 64 player Caspian Border map.

    *****Please keep in mind that as this is beta we will be stress testing our servers***** As such, users may experience crashes, network instability and outages as we roll out and configure servers and network utilities. Understand that such potential issues and the testing environment are not reflective or indicative of the final product and that, through your participation, you will be helping to ensure future stability and functionality.

    As we are again specifically testing 64-player server configurations, this test will be for PC only. The Caspian Border servers will be available for all PC players to join. Caspian Border will be available starting Friday, October 7th, in the afternoon (CET).

    This is from a EA/DICE guy. So it looks like we'll be able to play Caspian Border Conquest 64 player before the Beta is over. Time to team up guys and gals and experience BF3 in this way. Also remember, afternoon Central European Time (Lets say 4:30pm there though that's a rumor) is 1030am CDT US Central Daylight Savings Time.

    Other comments on Battlelog about this from DICE devs.

    Baza, got an ETA on when the servers with Caspian will go up?
    All I can say is "a few hours".
    Servers will be at multiple providers and worldwide with no password and the only limit is securing your place in the server :)

      All I can say is about got-damned time. I was only able to get about 20-30 minutes of caspian in the entire time before, because every server was potentially full, or crashing towards round end so it would dump me right back out in 5 minutes.

          Well I guess Dice is giving us a nice Thanksgiving gift (Canadians at least). Now to just get the new build up and running to really test it out! After watching some of the videos on Caspian Border it will be awesome to get some time in it now!

            Getting Kicked by Punkbuster in Caspian Border BETA Server

            So they are looking into the issue if it happens to you. There are no Admins on any of the servers for BETA hence an Admin can not kick you. It's Punkbuster acting up again. NO surprise there.

            And for LAG issues...

                I used to eat paint chips. Now I just drink the paint because I couldn't find a salsa that went well with the chips and they were dry =)

                  Tonight? How about in an hour? So the Euros can get some too.

                  Even better how about every hour on the the hour?

                  Maybe we can get an admin to add so more squad channels to the random server channels so we can get the party rolling. It is the last weekend.

                        I'm glad they're putting it out, yet sad since I'll be out of town all weekend. Hopefully I'll get a chance to try it out tonight after I'm done packing.

                          I keep getting kicked from servers after about 3 minutes. I will say that they optimized it seems......I never drop below 45 fps where as before I would chug at 22-25 fps. Oh and it is glorious conquest

                              Hell yes. I was having trouble motivating myself to login and play Metro over and over.
