I like the Beta but it needs some tweaks and fixes here and there. Vehicle driving feels a bit unrealisitc and some textures are much lower than other ones. But I think the release version will have these problems fixed and then there are no as may newbies as there are in the beta.
Newbies are a sure thing in the beta like you mentioned, since skill is not taken into account during the application process. Once the game is released the gaming community will segregate itself based on skill just like any other game.
There are no high rez textures in the game to preserve bandwidth. My biggest gripe with the beta is hitdetection bud SD already commented that that's a known bug. As for the newbies, "Attack the Objective" damn it
To be honest, at first I thought "this is not a game made for me". I've never played ET, I had always prefered CS, and I have never played Quake (only Nexuiz here and then). But I loved the Battlefield Series and have 1942 and 2142. ET: QW is not easy if you only know Battlefield etc., but I now am really amazed of the game and think that I will buy the final version, which of course is in German, too
