You can now download the BETA with your ODST disk, who's going to be playing?

I am, just finished downloading, may be a bit before I can actually play though.  :'(

EDIT: Just played for a bit, got some good games in (covie slayer's awesome!) but now the servers are down...

EDIT2: Oooh, they're back up already :D

Yeah the servers going on and off is kinda a pain, but it's the first day so I kinda expected as much. Still it's better than the halo 3 BETA first days. I'm having fun with it. It would be nice if there were more than two maps to play with right now. For some reason it didn't keep track of my first three games I played, lost my new shoulder pads I bout. :'( I'm also changing up the control schemes, I was doing Bumper jumper, but it doesn't work quite well with the new equipment. Switching to Boxer in hopes for better results.

I use the recon control scheme, but I haven't tried out any of the others.

Can't wait for the new game modes, invasions going to a blast!

I've got a mate coming around on Saturday for this.

Also, is Boxer essentially the same as it was in Halo 3? That's the control scheme I always use.

Well, I played the beta to see if it was still halo.
Got killed 16 times in a row (not kidding), yep it's Halo alright  :P

I'll play if you guys are, but if anyone is acting like a moron on chat I'm taking off my headset. Sooo, I should have my headset on for about 30 seconds  ;D

Yes I believe the control schemes are the same.

I'm glad to see that things seem a whole lot more stable. quicker load times, not losing my gear, or levels.

*EDIT*

I did this today
