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.
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.
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
