    Not looking forward to downloading 11.4GB again

    Because Steam doesn't have this problem on big new releases...

    My copy from Game didn't arrive today, if it doesn't show up tomorrow I will go mental!

    To be fair though this is EA's most pre-ordered game ever, they should have knew this was coming.

    Bloody ridiculous. It's not like EA should be surprised that many many people would be activating tonight. Bloomin' inept.

    Not quite sure why everyone is so unhappy. Its origin's first massive game with huge competition. Steam do worse than this for many many games. MW2 was awful on release day for delays, games never come out at midnight either. If i'm playing bf3 on friday, i'm happy. Because i've never had that from steam.
