Hey duders, are there any of you GB guys out there who have access to the Alpha?  
 
I want to get some friends on my Battlelog, so I can start getting an actual squad together and trying to do a little better, and I thought I'd see who else got in from GB. If any of you feel like joining me just stick down your name and I'll add you to my friends. (I'm in the EU btw, so bear that in mind when I might be on. Also, it means I get better ping on European servers). 
 
EDIT: Adding table for the glory of the Alpha!

EDIT 2: We now have a gigantic list of 30 users for the Alpha, which means if we were all to go on a bombing run on an empty server we could competently fill both teams. Just a thought before this whole thing ends on Monday. Still, getting everyone online would be a nightmare!

Woah so many people to add! I forgot to mention I'm Chavtheworld on Battlelog. 
 
Thanks to  @Ahmad_Metallic: for giving mah thread a shoutout in the other one :) 
 
EDIT: Woah just went to add you guys and Battlelog is down for any update, any idea anyone?

#16 Posted by PhatSeeJay (3322 posts) -

Seems like I won't play much this alpha. Keep getting problems with my Nvidia drivers and the game freezes.

Feel free to invite me to your squad so I can be bad for an audience T____T

#18 Posted by Sjupp (1912 posts) -

@Chavtheworld: List the duders on your first post for future duders coming to play with other duders. <3

#19 Edited by Bollard (5870 posts) -
@McBradders: It's okay, I'm still trying to claw my way back to a positive KD. It gets easier when you have more kit options. 
 
Also, for both you and @Tom1911: it's saying no soldier found - have you both played games online yet?
#20 Edited by Sweep (8986 posts) -

I am also in the EU alpha. My acc name is sexualinfection. HYPE.

Good idea, let me add a table.

Also, has anyone been able to get into a game? Battlelog is stuck on matchmaking : (

If you hit quick match, then don't bother. Just go on the server browser and find one manually to join. I find the quick match thing spends ages on matchmaking, whereas if you define a custom filer (say, Europe, 1-5 slots free) and then view the results you can pick a server and go straight away.

I have the same problem. I thought I had worked out how not to get shot, and then... 
 
I WANT MY KD TO BE 1 BEFORE IT ALL ENDS AHHHHHH 
 
Also, what's up with everyone who got an invite being in Europe?

#33 Edited by Vodun (2370 posts) -

@Chavtheworld: EU - Voodoun

Also: Any of you guys found a way to edit the key bindings? I can't find a menu option for it so I'm guessing it's old school config file editing that's the trick here?

#34 Posted by SpaceKangaroo (146 posts) -

EU, username is Grimson90.

Would be happy to get with a squad of players who co-operate at least a bit :D

#35 Edited by Mu5hy (124 posts) -

Following the RockPaperShotgun I got a key, and activated it in Origin, however the download wouldn't start. Maybe because I'm in NA?

Edit : after pc restart download is working fine. Haven't installed yet but if I can't get Mu5hy for my username I'm going to kill everyone.

I'm in. My name in BF3 is ApuZ96, US.

Just know that it probably won't be me you're playing with, as I've handed it off to a friend for a few days until I can get a copy of Windows 7.

#42 Posted by TotalEklypse (1000 posts) -

O horseshit.... it is an EU thing then?

#43 Posted by Askherserenity (124 posts) -

My brother got in but I'm using his account to play on my pc. (I have the better pc) Kaizoku13 US. I am loving it so far :D

#44 Posted by The_Laughing_Man (13629 posts) -

I got it. Not sure if PC can run it 

#45 Posted by Teaspoon83 (629 posts) -

I just got home from work and had the email appear in my inbox. Happy Dance!

#46 Posted by Funkydupe (3321 posts) -

I felt like playing a lot yesterday, but yes, the game doesn't take kindly to Nvidia-driven cards at the moment. Like someone else mentioned in the thread, if you get in, and you use Nvidia, you might crash every few minutes (Screen freeze/cntrl-alt-del kill).

#47 Posted by Bullitus (114 posts) -

I'm in! BF3 name is the same as my username here and I'm in the EU.

There is a config file in AppData\Local\BF3 however it is for other settings. Also, changing it causes the game to not run. I'm just adding everyone else to the table now!

That would be pretty dope, however that's a big thing to organise by Sunday. Ahmed_Metallic has already said to me he will be organising stuff for the beta, and the full game!

Sweet stuff, some Americans! I was starting to wonder if any of you got a code. Also, @Mu5hy, your in-game name should be whatever the name of your EA account is (the one you used to sign in to Origin!)
