Hope I get it
I must be getting other people's emails:
Nah, I got 4 as well.
As well as 4 confirmations that I have now been charged. But I was only charged once, so it's all good.
Ha, now that it finished downloading, I double-click the "install" and a button that says "launch origin" pops up, I click that, and origin opens with Battlefield 3 "Ready to download"... What was that 10.95 Gb file then???
I think you got my email erocker LOL
Nevermind, I had to manually extract the archive I downloaded to Origin's "Battlefield 3" game subfolder, and now it says "ready to install". Good to go.
check the speed it dls at, it's probably 30-40mb. it's coming from the file not the internet. for me at least that's what happened.
Nope it was actually re-downloading it... But all's good now!
EDIT: Ah, cute! They have a "Release Date Check" window...
Does it unlock Monday night at midnight, or what?
RE-EDIT: Looks like midnight on the West Coast, so that's 3 AM here on the East Coast. Gonna be a feat to get up at 2:45 for this!
edit: 470mb update, not too bad if that's it.
So I just got my e-mail stating I can download the game. Five e-mails with the same info. in fact.
Looks like I will be last on their list
Well I am in GA, so you can't be far behind. I am not downloading the game until Sunday or Monday anyway, so I never really cared. I just find it odd they felt the need to spam my Inbox about it.
is that gmt or local? they say "your", otherwise i would assume gmt.
Ya i got 4 of those same email too, don't understand why everyone is getting multiple ones.
But meh, i have the game downloading currently so that's all i care about really.
Pre-Loading as we speak for a game I was refunded for 2 weeks ago
If you got the email, be sure to fully exit and re-open origin
I also officially have a product code listed in origin.. hooray free games
Nope that's your local (eastern) time.
I'm debating whether to wake up at 2:45 AM to play LOL
Release Date Check:
Got 3 emails about the pre-load, downloading now at 11.2MB/s
I Got 1 email. Will begin preload after work
i will i think. i'll just sleep a little early
obviously it'll error but it also gives you the activation time
Maybe set your date on windows to 25th?
I got my email, preloaded without a hitch. 6mb/s.
Just got "flexed" due to too low call volume x too many agents on the floor. Time to see how fast my download is ^_^
heh i wish that did flash through for a second it's an online date check/activation though.
