Wooo!

I checked my email today and sure enough I got an invite to the closed alpha trial of Battlefield 3 :D Just wondering if anyone else here was lucky enough as well, maybe we can add each other on Origin and play a game or two?

    When did you get the e-mail? Unlikely that you got it today, because the Alpha ends on 1. August.

    I got it like 3 days ago, but it's on an email I never check :P

    It's the one I registered my EA account with, and I went to go post something pertaining to a problem I'm having in Bad Company 2 but had to verify my email first

    And when I logged into that email I saw it haha

    So if I never went to go and post on the forums I would have missed that email entirely! Strange how things happen.

    But I do have to make the most out of it, yeah, since it ends in like 3 or 4 days :(

    I got the email yesterday. I've been trying to play it but the game always freezes after a couple minutes. If you want add me and maybe if I'm lucky the game won't crash.

    Stupid question, but the BF3 beta is multiplayer only, right?

    Marketing/Promotional move? or do you actually have a proper bug track/reporting system that runs alongside the game?

    Been a slew of marketing beta's/alpha's from big companies rather than actual testing trials heh, I find the actual bug testing and constant crashes quite fun to work through and see resolved :P Always nice to see how one can impact something big.

    @Logan

    I know they have survey's and stuff relating to the alpha, but I'm not entirely sure if they have some kind of data collection thing running alongside it.

    I do know a lot of the destruction and graphics settings were limited because it's an alpha trial. I'm thinking it's more of a server stress test to prep for the beta.

    You can get alpha by signing for it.
    I had to wait for 2 hours and I already had BF3 installed. It looks sweet, but alpha is buggy as hell.
    Nope!

    It works fine for me. I get crashes here and there, but other than that it runs nice and smooth.

    Getting terrible FPS, barely playable at all low and resolution like 800*600. Meh, just as long as its all fixed when the proper game releases.
