    yup. need to be online for any play of BF3 since it launches from battlelog....

    and yes there's a downtime this morning. which fixes some laggyness with multiplayer and some SLI crashing?

    Just wanted to comment on the destructoid review. Normally I respect any reviewers opinion even if I don't agree, but when it comes to Jim from destructoid that goes out the window. Over the months I've been visiting that site I've come to view him as a completely biased anti-ea, anti-origin blowhard that jumps on every internet hate bandwagon. The comment alone about vehicle dominated mp is enough to show me that he missed something.

    Glad I don't care at all about singleplayer, that'd be more than a little annoying.

    Multiplayer, on the other hand, is just part of the Battlefield experience having EA Master Server problems right when you really want to play. :thumb:

    I don't even want to know how slow of a DVD drive or how fast of a connection you must have to pull that off! While I was installing from disk Origin was displaying a "Download Speed" or 8.5MB/s, my 20Mbps connection is lucky to get 2MB/s. More than four times faster isn't exactly "about as fast"! I admit their servers were quite fast when downloading the 500MB update, though for a service run by a massive publisher hosting only a handful of games and only one of which being frequently downloaded I'd expect no less.

    Nope, UK release isn't until Friday - so it'll be sent out tomorrow for delivery then.

    The only reason the others in the thread are playing is because they exploited the time-zone activation process, by way of proxy.

    Here's to hoping they all get banned.

    No I'm not jelly at all...

    20Mbps = 2MBps. You're maxing out your connection at 2 :blush:
    If you've a faster connection you can get 10MB+

    Lol, I would be mad if I was Bdigital at least - but I went with ZiiP; and'll have my CD-key e-mailed to me tomorrow morning for legitimate pre-load.

    My copy from play got dispatched tuesday night at 7pm so hopefully will be at my door tomorrow morning i live in Kent

    And i found this updated driver (version three 10/18/2011)
    AMD Catalyst™ 11.10 Version 3 Preview Driver
    http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/GPU124AMDCat1110PreDriverV3.aspx

    Helps with crossfire flickering and also improved GPU performance

    Might give it a go if i have issues

    More or less, the difference between bits and bytes is just multiplying or dividing by eight depending on direction. Theoretically a 20Mbps connection would translate to 2.5MBps so I'm falling a little short, but that's expected as nothing's perfect in the world. To get 8.5MBps you'd need a 68Mbps connection minimum (again assuming a perfect world). Maybe Dragunov does indeed have such a fast connection but that's certainly not the norm and as such his comment would be a little misleading.

    Might have to try this out, thanks for the link!

    So guys are we going to meet on a certain server for a friday night shooting fest!
    I am hoping to get online with a few mature and decent folk rather than have my launch party spoilt by a few immature individauls that i may find elsewhere

    Roll on friday

    I know our server is up, we just need to set the config for launch here. It'll be running hardcore, but come on in!

    I hope that CPC & Bit-Tech have one as well, for I shall indeed be calling on from time to time to say hi to peeps :)

    Out of curiosity. Can you play the "back to Karkand" expansion now or does it get released later? I thought it came with the game on launch but i have heard no news about it.
