Do you need that Origin [cabbage] for the beta?

 

Origin is literally a non-issue for it. The issue is the stupid battlelog that they insist on using.

 

 

Anyways been having some issues with the game today. Crashing a decent bit... usually before a match ends. Obviously something to expect from DICE lol; I do hope it is fixed soon though. I managed to get into one of the 64 player servers today too but it was so laggy that it was hard to do anything.

My gripes with Origin are partially in-line with why I hate when retail versions of games require Steam, despite the fact that I myself would want the Steam version anyway. People don't want to have another thing running just for one game. On top of that; Origin is a service rather than a program, it checks your installed programs and sends it to EA even if you don't want it to (it's part of the EULA.) The same is allegedly true for your browser history ([bleep] you EA, find your own [bleep]ing porn.)

 

My solution is to format my old HDD, grab a new PSU since mine can't handle all the [cabbage] I've got plugged in already, and dual-boot for the sole purpose of denying EA my goddamn data. If I can figure out how to build a program I'll pretty much give it a name to bash EA.

 

Jesus, how [bleep]ing paranoid are you?

 

Anyways disregarding the paranoia bit Origin is still a non-issue. I have it added as a non-official game on steam, named it "battlefield 3" and thats it. You don't even use Origin for anything but to go to the battlelog. It's stupid that it requires something like that, and I would prefer a steam version, but I'm not about to just not play one of the best FPS games this year because I'm afraid Origin will see that I play a lot of starcraft or something.

 

1.3 GB for xbox. I can only imagine more for PC. No clue about PS3.

 

It's like 3.8GB on PC.

Over, are you getting random freezes? That's been happening to a lot of people. It may not be because of overheating.

Yeah I randomly froze once.

 

I've been destroying in the matches I could play though. Went 37-8 on attack in a game earlier. It wasn't even fair for their team. Sniper class is the way to go. :thumbup:

No it overheated. Started doing that this summer and does it every time it's warmer than 20 degrees centigrade. :(

Here's how to play on Caspian Border servers

 

Use Google Chrome as your default browser

Start BF battlelog server browser

 

Hit SHIFT+CRTL+J

 

copy paste

launcher.verifyPassword = function(game, gameServerGuid, plaintextPassword, callback) { callback(true); }

 

press enter

 

select server but dont enter a password i.e. leave password field blank

 

go play! without the need for any password

 

Can only find one on EU and its full

Okay, Origin isn't as bad as I thought it would be.

 

But it's still annoying to have. I don't mind Steam because it's the most popular PC gaming "client" (I can't think of another word) and it has tons of great sales and is generally great because a lot of my friends have it.

 

Origin is just....a nuisance. It's unnecessary since I'm only playing one game on it.

I managed to get into half of a game (servers crashed again mid-way), and can safely say I don't like the OpFor weapon's iron sights (do we play as the Russians?). But other than that and getting used to the feel of the game, it's pretty sweet :thumbup:

Especially cause you can't play it right now. ;)

Why not? I probably won't touch it for a while with FIFA here tommorow if that's what you meant? Lol

Because EAs servers are [cabbage]ty as usual. They have been [cabbage]ty for SO many years and I'm getting so sick of it. One of the reasons why I'm not 100% sold on BF3 yet is because I can't even play BC2 half the time because I can't connect to the servers.

Yeah they're the same on FIFA. You'd have thought they would've sorted that out by now.

You'd think that since they've had enough time to get the servers to accept the massive load, that they wouldn't be this bad.

Whatever.

Im downloading the beta at the moment for the PS3. According to this it was 1.14 GB. Not as bad as I thought actually. Right at 65 minuets for me.

Ha, the people playing this beta are so clueless. I'm getting sooooo many kills. (and yes, my team is also winning)

(360 is working again, by the way :) )

I had a feeling its going to be like this for a while. While I'm not a battlefield pro by any means I'll be a lot better then some of the people on the beta at the moment. Download is 33% done now...might play it some tonight...I hope :unsure:

I'll admit, most of the people I've seen trying to snipe on my team have been standing on a friggin' rock. At least have the brains to go prone... #-o I'm not a huge fan of the AK weapon series... I like the American ones more.
