    Somebody call Troll HQ, trolls are running out of things to say.

    Maybe he's just a baby troll, taking his first hesitant steps into a world outside his basement-nest. There is only so much trolling you can learn by lurking, at some point you're going to have to post something troll-like in nature.

    Its important that we nurture his early efforts so that one day we can stand at our door with tears in our eyes watching him leave this board, and moving onto bigger and better pastures where he can spread his troll-wings and soar as high as he can.

    Who knows how high he can go? Being banned from boards? Being dropped by an ISP? Perhaps even get raided by the FBI? And then when we gather to read articles about him on TS, Julio would point out that he used to be a member here, and we would look back at his early work, and say to ourselves: we knew him when.

  5. I have preordered on Origin 10 days ago and have yet to receive any such deal from EA......
  6. Yay Origin, why not charge us aussies double, no wait triple like every other online download market. Better yet, sell it around the world half price and restrict aussie ip's from purchasing it

    I'll be getting BF3 no matter what, but I'm actually starting to get interested in trying RO2 when it comes out... I'm probably 1 of the few here that hasn't played any WWII mp fps.

    What the article fails to mention is that the free game deal is exclusive to the US, like all previous deals and discounts that were available before on Origin, always exclusive to the US, while us Europeans don't get anything. ._.

    EA pulled the, " God Bless Amerrrrrrika and no place else" card.
  10. That is so they can get Toby Keith to play the game.
  11. I really don't care if I have to play over Westwood online or have to call a number anytime I want to log on. Hell I wouldn't care if it had ubisoft style DRM, I would play Battlefield 3 through hell or high water.
