I've got the limited edition pre-ordered from EA, which shows up on the Origin app.. And "midday today" -- is that GMT or Yankee time?

Waiting for thursday.
Ea will get no money from me while they monopolise their digital downloads through one service at a price that is more expensive than the physical copy. (that and i had a 15 amazon voucher xD)

Will be interesting to see how Origin handles the mass download as I guess there was no pre-loading and unlocking like steam does? I imagine there won't even be one for launch day either...which will suck and be akin to the steam days of old - loads of people whining about low bandwidth speeds on release day!

I am tempted by this if only to see how my system handles it, but with the Origin requirement... Meh. Might just wait for it to be on sale after I upgrade.

Well I am going to decide if I buy this game based on what they have changed from the Alpha in the Beta, but if it is still the same regarding weapon's and spawn's then it won't be bought.

As for download's I have never had any issues with the download speed from Origin or EA download manager, I always get a decent speed on 50mb I got 47mb and on the 100mb that I now have I get 98mb sometimes it hit's 100mb.
With Steam I am lucky if I get 40mb regardless of which server I try to download from.


I will be checking Steam though later to see if I have my code from the MOH LE game, as I got it before the date they have said for being eligible for the early access.

I can't even log into origin as it no longer recognises my password.

Used the password recovery system and it sends you a validation code which you are either supposed to click on the link or copy and paste, neither of which work.

Try to use their contact system and you have to log in to use it.

Awesome just freakin awesome.

Ignore, it has decided to work this morning.

If the Origin download speeds are anything like the alpha download. I can see people complaining. I know I said when downloading the alpha '200-250Kbps what the hell! how crap! Steam lets me download at 700Kbps'.

Downloading at 1.1mb/sec which is very good considering the hammering they would be getting

@damien c - I can see the point about the spawns. What problems did you have with the weapons?

Will it just appear in Origin (I pre-ordered BF3) or will I get a key?

waiting for my key too, pre-orderd in like March..,

Pretty annoying that XBOX and PS3 owners are actually playing the beta now. Considering that the beta for PC was waiting for the consoles to be accepted, its a bit shocking that PC users are last to get access to the beta.
Yet more evidence that PC's are taking the back seat in the eyes of EA. Very dissapointed in both EA and DICE.

Where do you even download it from, our server owner has been given a spare key that hopefully I will be able to use but it doesn't even show in origins download sections.
