Battlefield 3

I failed the date authentication just now, but it was during the advertised downtime.

Anybody here Inzpire or scd73? Don't recognize the names off hand, and they aren't in the google doc.

Game is down for maintenance, should be up very soon if not now.
and yes, use the proxy trick unles they patched it to work without.

Just tried a quick match and THE GAME SEEMS TO BE BACK UP

Hey this is scd73. I changed my Origin name to OptimisticGWJ but I guess it hasn't took yet. Please add me when you get the chance. Looking forward to playing tonight!

Inzpire is whispa, he posted near the bottom of the previous page.

EDIT: I do think it's kinda cool to verify that people actually have GWJ accounts, btw. Thanks.

Me three. I just did the Korean trick, which seemed to work, but now this. Alas!

While I was watching TV, somebody got you.

I did the Korean trick again and didn't stop the VPN and it let me into a server. Tried again after I stopped it - nope. So they patched it, damn.
Just to be safe, change your passwords wherever you've logged in with the VPN/proxy.

I just got booted after getting back in. Might be done for the evening.

Sweet. I just got shipping confirmation from Amazon. My copy of BF3 is in transit from IN and should hopefully be in my possession when I get home from work. Are the stats reset tomorrow or have you early access players been building up your unlocks?

I'm playing online!

Playing the Campaign...
Currently killing endless waves of dudes because I cannot get the game to progress.
No marked objective. No open doors. Just two friendlies chilling in the middle of the room and an endless supply of baddies taking up defensive positions at the end.

Yup, sounds like Call of Battlefield 3. They basically copied the storyline, infinite spawning waves to artifically add length to the SP, and set-piece heavy style from COD. It's too bad they couldn't have been a little more original but I guess they're desperately trying to cater to the COD demographic.

My release date check moved up to 11 PM tonight! Woo!

Playing in a squad with Bear. Even killed some dudes that round!

I'm now 3GB into a supposed 48.1MB download.

Pretty sure it's actually re-downloading the entire game.

Someone from NeoGAF apparently found a fix for that.

FIXED the "Repair Install" issue.

1. Open up C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 3

2. Rename the Bf3.exe DiP Somethingsomething to Bf3.exe

3. Restart Origin.

Looks like mine got bumped up to midnight EST. Soooo tempting.

So wow, these graphics are so good it's disorienting. And I haven't played much Conquest in years. I think I need to find a Rush server.

It is believed we will be able to keep our stats as it has been legit to play online overseas since earlier today.

Danged double post!

I'm standing in line at Gamestop and this is more of a nerdfest than I anticipated. I feel dirty.

Officially unlocked now

Every time I get rolling with the M416 the server crashes and all my progress is lost. Taking it as a sign and going to bed.

Looking forward to a lot more playtime tomorrow though

I've waited in line for a few midnight releases. They have all been kind of bad in some way. I've waited on the gum riddled sidewalks of San Francisco which sucked. However the worst by far was for Modern Warfare 2. I waited in line with most of my friends, but the atmosphere of most of the people there was a little hostile. A friend of mine does have an entertaining story about the Wii release.

One of the "lucky" recipients of a Wii came outside to gloat to everyone that they got a Wii with I think Metroid Prime 3 and Zelda: Twilight Princess. Someone noticed that he was not holding Zelda, but Excite Truck. When they told him the guy nearly dropped his Wii and he promptly left as he was rightfully shamed for gloating.

At least you're not waiting in line for a midnight showing of the latest movie. Those crowds tend to be really far into the deep end of the nerd scale.

I tried the co-op. Maybe it's just me, but the first mission seemed like it was designed with more than two players in mind.

Is anybody else having crashing issues?

If I try to run on anything but low it hits some mythical 1.2GB RAM usage for bf3.exe and then crashes.

Anyone know where the optional HD texture install on the 360 for the MP disk. I just did the normal game install but didn't see a seperate file. Is that install for the textures or is there something additional?
