    HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH battlefield 3 has more bugs currently than the alpha build ever had, this is a joke just like the rest of all these internet nerd fan boys who keep nominating a game with NO SUPPORT and over 50% of the advertised features are no where to be found.

    I wish I could think so good about myself. Your customers are not able to play your products, and those who are able to - can't finish their game without PB error kick or just crash to desktop. Your support is talking about "it's not our problem - it's your hardware\gfx\ram\cpu" etc. Each time I'm contacting ea support, I'm getting no help or no help and "-3% redeem code". If you will ask me, did you "nailed" it, I would say "no".

    You have been nominated by blind people and dikeds. BF3 is bug riddled and is the WORST have I have played in such a long time. You hyped the game right up prior to the release them you disappoint by releasing utter garbage that has needed 19 patches, both server and client sided, and will need 30 patches more to fix it, that's if it isn't beyond repair. I should add that this will be the last game that I purchase off you clowns. Enjoy your nomination, suck it up while you can, wankers
