My experience with BATTLEFIELD 3!
Written by: vivek680 - 15:14 Aug-26-2013

2 week back I bought the humble bundle.....Wanted to download BF3 but....was saving bandwidth for SR4.....Finished downloading SR4 last week but could play it only recently.....Oh!...BF3....I started downloading it a week ago, right after SR4.....BUT WAAAAAIIIT!!!!...Origin was not working.....THEN I HAD TO go through the TRAILS OF SH!##Y EA SUPPORT....but after 2 days....figured it out my self -_-... It needed some system 32 black magic :P......THEN....I started BF3 download...Speed was 450kbps....fair enough.....started adding my dear (I had typed dead by mistake,not dear XD)  GD friends to Origin friend list....It WAS just a matter of approx 11hrs before I was flying a jet, shooting people blah blah blah.....Came back after 15mins to see the speed had gone down to 90kbps..... (0)_(0) ..... I checked the bandwidth used in the month......I hit the limit....Yeah.....Crappy internet...I know....4mbps (got only 450kbps dwnload) pack unlimited upto 25gb download limit and then after the 25gb mark is hit....756kbps (around 90kbps tops)....... Time required was 60+ hrs.....Yeah...WTF!!....I could only download for like 9hrs per day (my dad does not approve downloading games) :|.....so......After almost a week of torture....At present ( date: 26 aug 2013  7:40 pm) I am just 2hrs from playing the game....but......I NEED TO SLEEP BY 10pm !!!!!.....So....tomorrow I will finally get to play BF3!!!....Yippee!!..... -_- .....

I was booooooored...so I wrote a blog :P

Done!....Played.....1 co-op game.....blackscreen near the end of the match......no exp gained...HEAD BANG!......What did I just say >_<

my speed depends.. as on some downloads it supports peering and in some it does not!! so if it supports then i can get 2mbps i.e. 256kBps... and if not then around 256kbps i.e. around 35kBps!!

Ok, do you consider this awful? you should check the average internet connections over here xD most people are having 512kbps. I have 1Mbps, this is supposed to be very good, i download 1GB in an average of 3 hours and im very satisfied... Where do you live? it really depends on this.

Australia... When I haven't used all my data, it usually downloads at around 300 kb per second, sometimes even 600, but when I've reached my limit (which happens in about 2 days), it downloads at around 50 bp/s

Vivek, i think you should be grateful for what happened to you. My friend, here in egypt, has 2Mbps inet speed(this is great in egypt). Origin downloader jusy kept him downloading at an avg of 150kb/s(instead of 250, -.-). Then, when the download reached 90%, the electricity went off(this is usual i
