Oh yea baby, just got mine, downloading now. Pretty stoked I must say, got worried when I seen ya get yours before mine. Figured I beat you to the email, but I did use the wrong charlieoscardelta name, so I sent an email with the correct name. Perhaps thats what helped me get this awesome token.

Best of luck to everyone, hope to tear it up with ya. Also this beta is coming to all parts of the world, so might see a few of you around.

They have so many tokens, I would be surprised if someone that realy wants one does not get one. I got a little frustrated and figured oh well, If i get one i get one, what ever, then there it was in my email.

First impression after playing......

In the video previews it did not look like it was anything like the former cod games, but once I started playing I noticed it realy does have the same feel.

The sniper suit realy does work, It is very hard to find a sniper in the grass or bushes, even the small city maps have a few spots with grass, and the grass in game is a couple feet high, plenty to hide in,, the only way you are found is by moving alot, being seen on radar ( which you can prevent if you get the anti radar perk) then there is the death cam, so basicly you have to shoot and move, which is not as big a hassle as I thought it would be like in bf2 where the next good area of cover is a mile away, in cod4, if you are a sniper, you can fire a shot, get up and sprint to a new spot 10 seconds away, or just crawl to it through the bush, but its not impossible to get a sniper and its nothing to worry about too much, as a sniper no matter where you take possition you only have a limited view area, you cant see the whole map at once only down this street or that one, also the spawns keep changing so no spawn camping, where the enemy spawned a moment ago your team will start spawning. so spawn camping should be a non-issue.
And if you have jugernaut perk equiped a sniper can not kill you with one shot and he wont get a second shot on you unless you just stand there after being hit. the sniper class on cod4 is much more skill based than in bf2, you have to be picky about your targets and constantly evade and escape.,

Last stand perk,

Have not used it yet but seen some of my teamates go down in a doorway then use pistol while on thier ass in last stand, looks pretty cool and gives a cool feel to the game.

im multiplayer the bad guys look like bad guys, you will have a turban on your head, crapy clothes ect..

RPG is defidently skill based, you cant just point and shoot and kill, it has an arch to it so you have to realy judge your distance so you dont shoot over or under your target...

easy to climb over most objects, easy to climb in and out of windows, some times you can climb in a high window by climbing up onto a dumbster then into the window...

all the buildings have multiple ways in so you always have to watch your back, your never realy safe...

You can pick up grenades and throw them back, but I have not tried this yet, you have to find them first, I usualy just run in another direction.

The smoke grenades are ok but could be much better.

The knife melay ( why cant i ever spell that?) is very effective and easy to use, I would not say it is unfair in any way, if they guy is close enough to knife you he probobly could have taken you out with gun already, most knife kills come from you running past someone and they rather than shooting you, follow you for a few seconds till they can catch up and then stick a blade in your spine..

Kill cam, In bf2 the kill cam works by giving a view from your corps and pans to face where the guy was that kills you , In cod4 the kill cam is instead a replay through the eyes of your killer 4 or 5 seconds before he kills you. so you get to see your fat head pop up and him putting a bead on you.

Cover system...
so far the only real dissapointment for me, there is no cover system, if there is fire coming from down a long hall way, the only way you can look down that hallway is to actualy step out in the open, no way to peek arround corner or over objects, This game has lots of walls, open windows and doorways, out door vehicles, fences etc that it cries for a cover system, even if you cant shoot from cover, just to be able to back up against a doorway and see what is in the room or hall with out exposing yourself, I feel naked and exposed without cover system, I guess I been playing too much R6V.

if using assault rifle you have to be careful with your ammo, you can use it up very fast! but it is easy to pick up droped weapons,

2 Rifels? you start out with a main gun and a side arm. in one level I had an AK-47 and a side arm, My AK went dry so I switched to my sidearm. I walked over another rifle and pressed X to pick it up. but it was low on ammo and ran out very quick, so I hit Y to switch to side arm but guess what came up,,, My AK, i switched side arm for Light machine gun on ground, so I guess you can cary 2 main guns at a time. I am curious if you use last stand but have switch your side arm for a rifle, do you still use pistol on last stand? Maybe the 2 main weapons was a beta glitch, I will work on that tonight and find out.

Negotiating terrain...
some buildings let you get on the roofs with stairs and ladders, but I have seen some snipers use a glitch ( if its a glitch ) to get on high roofs that dont have stair or ladder access, will have to investigate this further. Heck I want up there too.

Vehicles... no you will not be able to drive or fly any vehicles in cod4, but there are a few areas in game where you can ride shot gun and man a gun here and there, but I know not same thing.

maps and hosting, the beta I have been playing is set up for 3 maps that automaticly rotate from one to the next, so not player hosted, but there are other game modes that might be that I have not tried yet, there is an option on the screen showing all players coming in before game starts that has an option to skip map. so if you are with a group that wants to play the same map again you can all vote to skip twice then just do it again. I have been playing team deathmatch, I think the games are a little short, I hope hosting lets you increase the point limits to make longer games.
controlls, Not bad but I still have to learn them to get better at game.

Anyway thats enough for now catch you guys later, if you have any questions on beta, feel free to ask and I will try to get you an answer.

Not sure, but its your best bet, go sign up at charlieoscardelta.com, there is a countdown for another chance to get in on the beta, the registration for beta will be monday 12pm pacific standard time, you will need to be on site at end of the sites countdown clock, its a first come first serve set up.

on the home page you will see the countdown clock on the left side, it is set to your computers clock not the official pacific standard time, so if you are in another time zone it will not read correct for you, you can change your computers clock to PST to get the counter to be accurate. You can always switch your clock back later.

It was basicly a first come first serve email thing they had going on. I really doubt you'd have any luck getting one before Monday at noon. Btw the site is charlieoscardelta.com.
