The 1.50 patch for the beta hit this morning and I just had a chance to hop on and play with it myself. Anyone else getting constant error messages popping up in the lobby? I wasn't even able to get into a game because it wouldn't start, and then would kick me and a bunch of other people out to the briefing room lobby.
I try to be as optimistic as possible, but if this is the latest build of their netcode, then I can't hold out much hope for October 14th. And the match-making/party system is not even in the beta test. I'd be surprised if that works flawlessly without any prior, mass public beta, testing.
Cross your fingers.
