    They should have given origin pre-orderers early access to the single player campaign (starting with the pre-load). They probably could have sold more limited edition pre-order copies that way simply from word of mouth.

    DL speeds are clearly showing incorrectly. I, in no way can afford a 120mbp/s connection.

    It actually stabilized at 5.0 mb/s. Which is correct for my connection.

    Installed...

    Tips:

    1) Don't bother downloading from D2D:
    a) it is slow
    b) it doesn't install, only Origin

    2) Copy your serial from the d2d mail and active it in Origin

    3) Origin will install... by downloading again, but... instead of 13 Gigas it will be 15 Gigas....

    4) It installs, and then downloads another 500 Mb...

    From d2d I got speed up to 1,8 G/s, from Origin I got 32 G/s and the whole game arrived in 5 minutes! 8)

    FYI

    Caboose's How to break verification:


    1. Open hosts file
    2. Open Wireshark
    3. Open Origin
    4. Run the BF3 Game
    5. Watch for the IP the game tries to contact
    6. Reroute it to local in the host file
    7. Steal the authentication code for the website
    8. Make the function that determines it return, "1" instead of a "0"
    9. ???
    10. Profit

    BTW if I don't think anyone else has tried this so I'll keep you posted, so far at step 7.

    i did and it went fine. i ran the setup from the d2d zip and it installed origin, opened the screen to add the serial, and then installed the game from the d2d download. it then downloaded the patch. also, d2d maxed my connection.

    Max download speed has usually always been up to about 500KB/s but it's usually lower like around 350KB/s.

    Might have to change to a better service.

    ok! I thought that Origin maybe had the updated files, and... it was massively faster here.
    At the end it will be all the same, but some are so anxious I thought I should give'em alternatives in case they ran into the same issues as I. :rolleyes:

    I'm working on it...

    Anyway the program actually generates a random activation EXE everytime you run it, so I can't mess with it. Best way I can think of is intercepting traffic, and having it think IM the activation server.
