@Stormy Being left out does sting, but patience is a virtue, nonetheless.
It does raise a lot of concerns, especially with the narrow window until release. Here's hoping this beta addresses a lot of the optimisation issues and helps carve out better models, even if it feels like it's a tad too late.
Completely agree. There needs to be a placeholder timer until you can rejoin your party.
Thus far, the low FPS and stuttering are the most prevalent issues in BETA2, especially for people with lower-end PCs. Hopefully, a patch comes out soon to address this for everyone, but it definitely is an optimisation issue.
Hello! You can refund it anytime you like, but on September the 18th when the game goes live, you can play up to an hour before you can. So until then, while it's still in beta and your hours played don't count, I would recommend you give the game more chances while the devs fix it up in case it improves for your system performance and to see if you want to refund it or not! ^^
Only slightly, but it's very random. As of right now, I can barely do just about anything, since the FPS drops to 10 and below every couple of seconds. Hopefully, they'll get around to it with a patch soon.

At the end of BETA1, most of my friends with laptops and lower-end PC builds said the game ran a lot better than the beginning of the first day of said beta.
Sadly, when they were in a party together when BETA2 just launched, they experienced excruciatingly long loading times into the match, texture pop-ins that constantly affected their FPS, as well constant freezing and screen stutters.
Not everyone has monster builds to run games, so I believe making sure a lot of people who are huge fans of the first Insurgency and for some reason or another cannot afford a better build at the moment, deserve a chance at what is shaping up to be one of the best FPS on the market thus far. I have the utmost faith in NWI, despite the similar problems I have faced from above.
With regards to the voice acting, and being Egyptian myself, I do see where you are coming from. It does feel a little lacking, and forced more often than not. Voice work can be retouched, if they get enough feedback regarding the matter, so they can contact the voice actors to improve their lines.
What bothers me more, is the fact that most of the Arabic spoken is from the Security forces, and not the Insurgents, oddly enough.
Agreed. There are a lot of people who do not have the luxury of high speed Internet, as well as multiple connection interruptions who want to give the game a go during downtime. The "Always Online" requirement will readily prompt a lot of refunds, sadly.
