Unlock BF3 early


[link to this post]
 
PC only I guess but here is what I did:

Follow instructions on link below:

http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showpost.php?p=2038...

Then close origin.

Then open origin.

Activate - load battlelog.

Wait until you can see options to join a campaign/play multiplayer and then turn off origin.

delete proxy server settings then open again in fast UKness.

Would have posted this last night but I was too busy playing blush

Fair play to you, I'd have done exactly the same!!

How is joining games in the MP? Probably not as congested as it will be very soon! tongue

On a side note, reading all the posts at the bottom of this page makes me think the kiddy accusations aren't uniquely a COD phenomenon. wink

***IMPORTANT BATTLEFIELD 3 SHIPPING INFORMATION***
Please note due to high volume we are processing pre-orders for Battlefield 3 from today (Monday), in preparation for dispatch on Wednesday.
As there is such phenomenal demand for this title we have started now to allow us time to prepare for shipping and to also allow customers to amend any card details should there be issues with charging. If you have pre-paid for this title don't worry, your order will be processed shortly and shipped on Wednesday with all other pre-orders.
Thank you for your patience at this time.
- The ShopTo Team


I'm glad T2D pointed me too these guys. They make HMV and GAME look like amateurs.

I just wish SONY took this approach to customer service.

Best online game retailer by far and that is coming from somebody that used Game for many years,not actually used them for Battlefield as i have quite a lot of store card credit at Blockbusters and Gamestation for games i have traded in.

I intend on picking up Battlefield 3 from Blockbusters Friday morning,same with Uncharted 3 the following Wednesday.

MW3 is pre/ordered with Shopto.net and has been for ages,but with this particular title i will be surprised if it turns up a day early.last years Black ops and really popular games like this that have review embargo and strict release day schedules don't normally arrive until day of release.

Last few games i have ordered from shopto like dead island i have had 2 days early and its major games that are the ones that possibly will arrive smack on time like Battlefield and MW .

But it looks like yours is set for Thursday so lets hope a week Monday we get another nice surprise matey wink

They should have somehow used keys that were region specific since they were stupid enough to try and split the launch of multiple days:/

Glad they have decided not to penalise those who have not found the stupidly easy work around

Guess this only works for those who ordered on Origin then? I don't know if Amazon got the message that the release date for BF3 has been moved forward. crazy

Yargh!

I guess it must be - I think most guys in my clan just went for the origin option anyway. For companies posting games out I doubt there is much they can do to get the game out faster.

Incidentally my ea game name is ilhilh if you want to add me when you do get on.

Gotta say I'm loving the maps so far (played some rush and conquest) but I have seen perhaps 7 of the 9 maps.

Single player seems a bit... meh. I will play it through but a lot of FPS struggle with plot lines in the SP. And let's face it - SP isn't why most of us are here!

I will definitely add you, cheers.

So jealous you are all gaming already - all those lovely new maps. You will likely be relatively expert by the time my noob ass gets onboard. Not that it matters much anyway.

My playing style is so flaky my stats are all over the place with a negative Kill Death ratio (though I guess someone's gotta try and balance the equation out). crazy

Roll on Friday or Monday (knowing Amazon). Tick tock tick tock.

You lucky dogs! tongue

Indeed! frown

But bf3 is not just kill ratio and thats the beauty...being the person who dies a lot, but stops the enemy tanks from causing havoc can mean a win for the team

Thats what I spent most of my time doing on MOH. Not that many people admit to enjoying playing that game online for long. wink
