They're not done yet!
The other thing is, in this beta, some things may be different than the final game. So if something is in there you like, be ware, because they might change it before the final version!
I think it has improved in many areas, gotten worse in a few areas, and not changed (where it should have) in several more. So I hope they continue extensive work on it until it comes out, and continue to work on it through patches thereafter (as I'm sure they won't get everything done by that Nov1st rush date).
