Kind of sucks that it locks all of your previous ID's..I had some good ones. Oh well, at least I was able to swap from the one I created at "random" when I made my Origin account

Yeah, I couldn't get Branched because it was my persona in medal of honor, which I played one game of. Ended up switching to Branched23.

First World Problems.

Anyway, on topic, I got my email around ~11:20AM EST, downloaded at a speed that made me raise an eyebrow at EA's apparently increase in server load handling quality, then finished and defragged just in time for lunch.

A successful pre-load all around I think, especially considering I was expecting to be treated second-class to the U.S. on the queue of priorities.

So far so good EA. Don't **** it up.

Wat? Second class citizen?

Anyways yea I got a key from Direct 2 Drive and activated on Origin. Download started off at 11MB/s (on my 50mbps connection? - Speedboost most likely) and then tapered off to a stead 6MB/s. 50% preloaded in about 15mins I could never get these kind of speeds on Steam.

Good job EA, good job.
