BF3 & Origin Accounts Linked

A week-old tweet by DICE community manager Daniel Matros notes that player names in Battlefield 3 will be linked to the player's Origin account, in response to the question: "Will it still be possible in BF3 to freely choose your ingame nick(soldiername),like it has been with BFBC2?" His exact response was: "your name is linked to your origin persona." This is interpreted by BF3Blog to possibly mean that each Origin account will only be allowed to create one soldier for the upcoming military shooter sequel, but the tweet doesn't seem to be definitive about this. He also later responded "we'll clarify that going forward" to the question: "Will our Origin ID have to be our BF3 soldier name? Or can you make up a new name?"

so it is ok for compagnies (sic) to sniff up your ass , and monitoring all you do , but not beeing (sic) able to name more than one of your player is just wrong...hmm mkay

Exactly, if EA can monitor their games they can allow us to have multiple characters per account. Simple idea, right?

You must work someplace they don't have power? Otherwise you're being monitored too. Don't worry when you get a job other than the local gas station you'll soon realize the company you work for is monitoring you at all time.

The lovely company I work for has GPS on our vehicles, monitoring of every thing on our laptops, and we all carry a company provided cell phone. So wake up and smell what you been sniffing....
