This Eurogamer take reflects some of my experience - good/bad/buggy bizarre.
I realize that it's "just in beta," so bizarre bugs are expected, but I've played enough betas that to think they'll actually stamp everything out by October seems, well... let's say "hopeful." Battlefield 1's beta is broken and brilliant in equal measurehttp://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2016-09-06-battlefield-1s-beta-is-broken-and-brilliant-in-equal-measure
Horses really can be amazing things and Battlefield 1's steeds are up there with Agro and Epona as some of this medium's very best. And then, just as you're admiring the way your soldier's pouch bounces up and down by his side and every strap on his perfectly recreated uniform looks and moves like real leather, that's when you get snared on an innocuous looking pile of rubble while some preening edgelord with a sniper rifle kills you for the 16th time.
I probably got killed by snipers a couple dozen times, blown up by tanks a few, gunned down by "circle strafing" grunt soldiers a few times who managed to miss my LMG fire at close range.
I love much of what the game tries to do. Just really have no idea if I could ever pull my weight enough with experienced players to contribute. For sure I felt the same way in SW Battlefront, but on some maps, some modes, I could consistently do reasonably well. Although clearly that's a game more meant to bring in more than the hardcore base.
