    They say they buy their keys, and that if you are satisfied they will refund or even replace. Plus it comes with every single pre-order bonus out there. The one you are looking at probably doesn't come with Back to Karkand. If that doesn't bother you, cjs seem to have that basic copy of the game as well I think for $2 more than that site. But that site doesn't have a bunch of info on how they attain these keys or customer service.

    i bought at cj's too. using moneybookers you can pay with credit card (cj's wont get your cc details). if they dont send a key just chargeback on your credit card

    How did you get it to start?..I cannot. Not that it matters too much, but ya know...for all I know, it's already pre-loaded, left my PC on last night, and just sat down to it a few minutes ago.

    So I am bored and decided to watch a little IGN rewind theater. I start with BF3 of course. Then i decide to watch CoD:MW3 which is framed beautifully with a BF3 advertisement before the video?

    Either the video spots are random or EA has come up with the most targeted advertisements ever.

    Now what I wanted from BF3 and what we are getting:

    Diversity in weapons: Check

    More Pistols: Check

    Single Player worth Playing: Check

    Night combat: Check (1 map so far)

    More content: 9 retail maps, 4 maps from Karkand DLC, and a statement they are shoot for at least twice the DLC from BFBC2 which had 3. So we can expect around 5 more DLCs. Check

    Large scale vehicle battles: Operation Firestorm has a confirmed 2 jets, 1 chopper, 6 tanks, 4 jeeps per side....from just the deployment bases. Check

    And handjob: Well I can't have everything I want for $60.

    sweet night combat?!?! that will be awesome!

    more maps and DLC will be great too

    the large scale vehicle battles will be insane though! You always get that one guy with the joystick who spends his whole BF3 career in the the plane and destroys your whole team :banghead::banghead::banghead: ... I hate that guy lol

    I figured it out. Need to change options. Put the checkmark in the option with the red box:

    [​IMG]


    Then it should work.


    Or maybe it jsut went live, here, dunno. But that's what I did, and it showed up after restarting Origin.

    See? LuLz:

    There was an Origin update. Maybe you'll have to install that.

    I don't think it matters until you get the key.

    I launched Origin after 10am EST and then let it sit there for an hour, checking occasionally to see if it was ready to pre-load. I then closed it, literally got my pre-load email on my Blackberry less than 15 mins later, re-launched it and it was ready to pre-load without me changing any setting or entering any key.

    Your receipt of the email is your notification that your account has been "turned on" for pre-loading. The gap between when the switch is flipped and when you receive that email is the only wiggle room causing confusion. Not everyone got their keys at 7pm PST, just like I didn't get mine until after 11am EST. They're probably deploying 'activated' accounts in a cascading fashion based on server load.

    Oh, and there was a typo in the email's Subject. Stay classy EA.
