    I already have 1942, but if I didn't I would be jumping for joy right now. One of the best multiplayer games of all time... for free? Yes please.

    The game that started it all. Man, did I invest some serious hours into that one. I'll download this just to get a little blast from the past.

    Sounds good. Enjoy your Origin while I don't bother with it.

    Its funny how they view BF3 premium as a service to their community, when I view it as a sheer money making scheme by EA

    You sound like an iSheep. "Whatever. It's free, but it's not what I use. I'm not going to get it."
    Origin sucks, but apparently not too much seeing as how I have 250+ hours in Battlefield 3.

    No, I sound like someone who simply doesn't trust EA anymore, and with good reason.
     
  13. There really is no problem with Origin and it is easily disabled from running on your computer while leaving the game playable. If that isn't enough for people just use the CD version. the Battlefield 1942 community is being revived by EA doing this and that is awesome as it is and was one of the best communities for a game in history. I have setup a community/forums to help out new players and also make a place for people who love the game to hangout and share information.
