that's delicious .... btarunr
BF3 discount maybe late for most of you including me
My problems never came from the utility of it, but came from the fact that people think it will help when playing with strangers. I have stood right next to people spamming Q with my soldier verbally screaming at them "GIVE ME SOME AMMO" over and over, and people don't even get that. I have stood in front of Medics with almost no life bar just looking at them, and they don't ever bat an eye at me.
The Commo Rose is an ok idea, but if you are playing with friends, you will just tel lthem over TS, Vent, or Skype. And if you are playing on Strangers, it just feels liek a massive waste of time to open Commo Rose as people need to have a hand attached to their monitor that slaps them when they need to help out a teamate. Commo Rose just isn't flashy enough, if a Soldier is screaming at you and you can hear his voice and oyu do nothing, I just don't see how Commo Rose will fix that. Plus I play Core mode where a minimap has big icons for people that need health and Ammo, if people aren't smart enough to watch that (which it seems most aren't) I wouldn't bother depending on them for anything, you will just get let down.
Gaming with strangers is simply that, gaming with strangers. Usually they have their own objectives and don't care to help you out. I just don't feel Commo Rose was worth the time to make. But if it didn't take them long then I guess thats fine.
Did the same, no email yet, but the game remains in my Origin and I had got Early Access to the beta from it.
The 1st and 2nd one are I think over a week old, 3rd probably is too, Kevinheirz had posted them I think, just maybe hadn't seen the 3rd one.
I just spent 40 minutes in live chat being assured that I will be eligible for preload, but I still haven't got an email from Origin.:shadedshu
By the way, anyone who was wondering about CJS-Keys, I just went and read their site, because I know Shib had posted that he thought the keys might be stolen and had posted a snipet of info from their site.
but this is the whole line
So it does seem it's legit, and probably the only way to actually get all the pre-order bonuses. I only checked back just incase they actually did cancel my pre-order from Origin, having all of the bonuses would be nice. I also went through their site and read many user reviews, just to see if anyone happened to have their key revoked at a later date, but I can't find a single review saying that happened. But I can't guarantee them to be 100% legit, but it sure seems like they are is all I am saying.
just remember that they take your money when you pre-load. I bet they will charge if you try, and then claim that it is your own fault for trying to pre-load through them.

If I pre-order BF3 on origin will it unlock on the 25th or the 28th since I'm in the UK.
I like how they add that name change feature to origin now after so many people complained and they told us we couldnt change it...
what a bunch of idiots
Did you post all or most of this already?
I think they were forced to after they slipped up with the Smart Phone thing. People were changing their names left and right.
According to Shit-no, you won't be able to install until the 28th. It must be controlled by Origin, no matter where you bought it. The guys on Battlefieldo keep saying there is a way to get it to work on the 25th by being on a north American VPN. No idea how that works. There will probably be a how-to posted by the 25th...
AFAIK, the only thing that is a repost is the thing about the day-1 patch. Somone else posted that earlier today.
Of course everyone knew about the pre-load on the 21st, but did we know that was world-wide?
Did we know it wouldn't even install until the release date?
Okay. I am about to pre-order the game from Origin, but before I do so I have a couple questions that maybe you guys can answer...
1. If I read it correctly, you can download the games content on the 21st (US), then install it within the first couple hours on the 25th?
2. Does anyone have any previous experience with down loading games from Origin? I am assuming EA is allowing this 4 day pre-load because they are expecting to have server lock-ups or crashes from the thousands of people pre-loading all at once.
3. If I wanted to buy the 'physical' game would I still be eligible for pre-load on the 21st (US)? seems like a silly question I know.
Eligible for preload? no email received? whats this all about MT kinda worries me because I have never used this Steam like Origin thing.
Not sure if digital copies will come with this, but someone just unboxed their copy of BF3 and found this.
I decided on physical from Gamestop. Can walk there and get it 10PM Monday night. Live Chat, this time, assured me they were in fact shipping out before the 25th but this is still a preferred option. Less factors to go wrong and def will have earlier.
It works the same as Steam, Snapshot. Downloading and installing at least. I doubt you can preload if you purchase a physical game.
Yes no download with the physical thus no preload.
I thought about waiting in a long ass line at GameStop and buying the physical game for that same reason of nothing going wrong. Because with a digital pre-load, many things can go wrong. When I tried installing MW2 on released date Steam's servers kept locking up and my download timed out like 10 times. Uhhg, it was so frustrating.
So does Gamestop have pre-orders available or is it first come first serve?
2) Most of us have experience doing this from the beta. Many were surprised at the download speeds being so robust. In this case, it does spread the stress over several days, so most people should have a pleasant, smooth experience.
3) no. You need the cd-key to put in to Origin to do the pre-load, and you won't have it yet (it's in the box).
I don't know why MT Alex is so stressed about the pre-load, it's not like he will be able to play it as soon as the download is complete. Plenty of time to work out any issues between the 21st and the 25th.
It would make no difference.. Physical copies still install thru origin, and still require connecting to the server for the day 1 patch and presumably the game .exe
If you have purchased a physical copy there are ways to download the ISO and simply enter the key when you get the disk. Really though the game will probably be next to unplayable in the first 24h due to lag and the servers getting hammered.
Day 1 will be a shitshow.
Ol'righty, pre-order it is!
As for Gamestop...in my 'hood there probably won't be a line.
Single player and co-op!
anyone know how many players cab be in co-op at the same time? I think 4 would be sick and it's a great way to practice spacial awareness/team awareness.... which many people lack.
