I'm installing now. My Origin ID is LiamJoseph if anyone wants to add me, I'm going to be doing a bit of single player first before attempting multiplayer though.

Edit: My god, Origin is such a transparent rip off of Steam :lol

I was playing on Caspian Border earlier, and it seems like people either don't know what they're doing or the map is a little too big for 24 players. I had to run all the time in order to find the objectives or people.

In all fairness, as far as the actual program goes Origin is nowhere near as much of the shitpile Steam is.

What is this origin nonsense.  I keep hearing you have to install third party software to make this game run.  Is this true eve if you install off a DVD disc?  I don't want any crazy shit running in the background.

Origin is basically EA's steam, so yes it needs to run in the background.

Seriously, it really isn't. It runs really smoothly, and takes up virtually no memory, and really just isn't there if you don't want it to be. Steam is way worse as far as performance is concerned.

Oh ok well I'm seriously thinking about getting this game.  Are you guys on Skype to do some serious team coordinating shit?  I've realized I enjoy games way more if you can talk to friends and actually use tactics within games.  that's why I've been playing LoL so much lately.

It's a little of both. Caspian border is ginormous!

Have faith, young padawan.

Also, there's nothing more annoying than playing rush and you're on the attacking side and everyone else wants to be a sniper!!!

Omg.  Played through the level where you are the gunner in the f-14.  Holy shit this game is amazing.  My system is running smooth when everything is set to medium so im playing it on that.  The graphics are incredible!  Never seen graphics like this before.  Fantastic.  That jet level was amazing.  The atmospheres are better than the actual gameplay if you ask me.  It's quite an experience.

Well that's alright. I'm talking about the guys who specifically use rockets instead of their carbine - like those asshats in the garage across the street from the narrow crossing on Sienne Crossing. Fuck those guys.

I've seen it more in the building that's on monument park on Sienne Crossing, they go up to second and third floor and just start shooting them. Annoying as fuck!
