The first wave of Battlefield 4 Alpha Trial invites are being sent out today to randomly selected Battlefield players. The selection process is completely random, and though some might suggest that a high Battlefield Veteran status or BF4 pre-orders, this is simply not the case as the selection process is, once again, random.

For those that remember the Battlefield 3 Alpha trial, the amount of play testers will be increased as the trial progresses, so if you don't get an invite now, there is a chance you will get one in a few days or even next week.

Damn, don't have one. I really want to get in to see the new destruction if possible on PS3.

I'm really curious to see how current/last gen handles it.

I think I'm 8. The system is, like I said completely random. This is some poor sap from Mordor's credentials, no invite:

> Pre-ordered Battlefield 4 Deluxe Edition
> I Bought Battlefield 3 Limited Edition (pre-order)
> I Play BF3 since the day one (Enlisted 24/10/2011)
> Veteran Status 10.
> Colonel Service Star 100
> I have Battlefield 1942
> More than 900 hours playing BF3.
> Premium Member.

Goes to show how much of a crap shoot the whole thing is. It's entertaining to say the least.

(Also holy shit the BF3 Alpha thread was 150 pages)

For BF3's alpha I got shafted until my buddy who is a console only gamer, doesn't own a PC, got an invite so I was able to use his account.

Gotta wonder how they end up sending an Xbox only guy an invite, but that's the beauty of it.

There is a somewhat sizeable amount of people (including myself) who had a perfect, smooth, 60fps+ experience with the game...up until one of the patches shortly after Armored Kill came out.

Then all of a sudden there is awful rubber banding 10x/min that you have to stand still for 2 seconds or jump 3+ times to snap out of it.

I haven't been able to play it for long periods of time since that happened and it's making me really sad they haven't patched it yet because I WANT TOP PLAY. Some servers are better than others, but the rubber banding eventually hits and it becomes an utterly awful experience.

Doing a clean install/HDD wipe fixes it for some people, but it eventually comes back.
Dice said they've been working on a fix since they broke the game for some people, almost a year later and still no fix.

I hope I get an Alpha invite because I just really want to play some Battlefield

Please note that this highly tech-focused white-boxed Alpha Trial that does not represent the final quality of the game. Most of the level textures will be white (except Soldiers and Vehicles), and performance at this early stage of developement will be choppy

Not the E3 build then?

This isn't the beta, but the alpha - and that one is, most likely, PC only.

Everyone who has been selected for the alpha should have gotten it in Origin and received and email. Everyone else, the beta is in the fall :)

I couldn't remember the account I used for the earlier BF games. Otherwise my veteran status would be higher. Even suffered through 1943. Hated it. Can't do Battlefield with a controller =(

For some reason I don't have a lot of motivation to try BF4. If I get an invite, I'll be sure to pass that along to someone else :)

I think they attach it to your Origin account, nothing to pass along unfortunately.

Sweet, I got one too! Just checked my Origin client after seeing this thread, and it's there waiting...

For anyone wondering what my Battlefield "credentials" are:
http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/user/Mathezar/

Have not pre-ordered BF4 or anything. Weren't Premium members not supposed to get into the Beta by default? Seeing this is an Alpha, the Beta might come later...

Beta starts in the fall. Which is unfortunate because I'll be at university w/out my PC.

I think the invites are auto-registered to accounts, no code in the email to give to another account.
