BF3 Open Beta 9/29

They did the same thing with Medal Of Honor, give you one map to play with no cap on ranks and perks. Basically a marketing thing. You aren't actually testing anything besides load testing on a server.

The Origin terms of service require every user who isntalls it to agree to allow Origin to access any and all files related or non-related to Origin or EA/Dice games on your computer. Kinda messed up, read it on reddit.

GG EA. Realized i didnt re-pre-order bf3 and now the origin site wont accept paypal as a method of payment. I mean, they have the radio button for paypal but it never redirects to paypal and when you try to checkout it says invalid payment method. WTF :(
