Was anybody else having problems identifying enemy's? My two biggest complaints about the beta were defiantly #1 having a difficult time spotting enemy players and than #2 telling friend from foe.

Maybe it has something to do with all the foliage in Casp or Metro?

It certainly wasn't as easy as BC2 or BF2. However playing against MEC (or whatever it's called in BF3) should be easier! The release will have the voice commands as well. I always found them to be a dead give away because of the difference languages. Just make sure you let it speak russian and stuff so you can hear them.

I wanted to try it, but it didn't really look like it had something as good as versus mode in l4d1/2. I honestly think l4d1/2 would be one of the most boring/repetitive games in the world if it wasn't for versus mode. IT makes the game so much better.

Yeah spot seamed hit or miss for me, sometime I could spot NP, other time you button mash "q" for 15 seconds and it still doesnt spot.

MEC is the Middle Eastern Coalition and I haven't see them in BF3 yet but I thought that was supposed to be one of the forces. So far all we've seen is Russians and Americans. EvilYeti might be having the issue that I was having (and apparently cmac) where friendly player tags were not displayed above friendly players and enemies wouldn't have the red triangle over the head once spotted. Like I said though, a reboot resolved that issue.

Dead Island is nothing like Left 4 Dead. Dead Island is more survival RPG, where as L4D is just FPS really.

I swear there is a middle eastern team, it's probably on some site somewhere, might have to dig it up.

Yeah l4d is an fps zombie game. Lots of tactics, but pretty similar to other fps tactics.
