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?"

You'd think a company of this size would have been able to hire somebody to make this shit work properly when they rolled it out to the public.

I couldn't use my original name (which I've been using for twenty f'in years) because all their shit sites aren't linked properly. I'm talking about EA sites, Bioware sites, and now their EA Downloader/Origin shit.

They recently sent me an e-mail for a FREE game when I pre-ordered BF3 and the damn e-mail link takes you to their (website not Origin itself) and the promo code doesn't work there. The site will try to bill you for the game. So if you got one be sure to use it in the Origin client not the Orgin website.

I'm able to over look the always connected feature while playing the game since I'm always on anyway. And that seems to be the trend with everything else... not to mention all our electronics at work are constantly monitored. But not being able to name more than one of your players (if this is correct) well that is just bull shit and it's getting old quick.

Eidt: I'm hoping we're all just jumping to conclusions.
