    Guys from RockPaperShotgun revealed very fascinating theory that if your level in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is 30 or higher you can get an Alpha Key for Battlefield 3 by following this page. Anyway, I followed and after a few easy steps they gave me the key. Are there more lucky duders out there?

    Damn it, I knew I should have played more BC2... 
    I think I'm level 14 or something right now, and there is no way I'll be able to get up to 30 before this thing is over...  

    Oh well, if anyone has a spare key, I'll gladly accept it. 
    Yes, that's right, I'm a beggar now.

    I'm lvl 38, I'm a newsletter subscriber and veteran status 5.  So consider yourself just lucky.  I went to that page and it pretty much said i don't meet the criteria.

     I did a little detective work and found that several people with 10- ranks in BC2 got keys, so nope, we still don't know what that damn required criteria is.. 
    it's not veteran status rank, or BC2 rank, it's nothing! 
     
    Anyway, congratz on your key! use this thread to gang up with other Giant Bombers in the alpha trial

    There's no alpha trial on the consoles if you're waiting for a key to one, dude

    I'm 39, Veteran status 4. I think so too, I was lucky enough to get the key. Although, bad news, alpha ends in 3 days.

    I'm at level 34, and it said I didn't meet the criteria.  Maybe it's only for those playing on PC?  I'm on XBL.  Oh well, I picked up Medal of Honor on the cheap a few weeks ago, largely for this beta.  I'd love to hear when it starts...

    I just got an e-mail from EA with a download code because they believe I have a great interest in the Battlefield series. So I'm guessing they sent me one because I have Bad Company 2 on PC, and probably because I have Medal Of Honor as well.

    I have installed BFBC2 for 5 minutes. Played the campaign for 2. Never played multiplayer. "As one of our valued and trusted Battlefield players..." what? Are they just giving this away to everyone now?

    With how wide the invites are going out I feel like the exclusivity thing is a ruse to just get people to try Origin. Sure, they're testing and stressing their servers which is the whole point of this Alpha but to say its closed and only for specific fans and then invite almost anyone who owns a battlefield game or something is just silly.

    I got it on my old account which only has BF2142 on it. Maybe some BF2 as well but it's definitely the account I played and bought BF2142 on.

    Why the freak did i get this code? And the mail said i was a true Battlefield player and that they wanted ME in their pre-alpha testing. I thought it was a scam so i deleted it, but i guess not.

    We're sorry, you don't meet the requirments.

    Although it sounds more like a how many battlefield games you own and less what your level is.

    I own 2 battlefield games (that are registered) and am about level 3 in bc2. I didn't expect to get in.

    Usually pre-alpha isn't a time for stress testing servers, so I also am curious why so many people are getting codes.

    It is what they said as the reason for the alpha, in my invite email.

    I bought Bad Company 2 in a steam sale and played the single player once for five minutes and managed to get an invite. All current theories have to be wrong.

    I did get invite for my second EA account. That account only hold BF 2142 and BF heroes and has no veteran status, so it can't be that.
    Although I did do quite extensive alpha and beta testing for BFH so it might be that, or more likely I just got lucky at the key lottery.

    I own BF2, BFBC2 on all consoles, BF 1943, BFBC1 on 360, BFBC2:Vietnam on PC, level 20+ on both consoles for BFBC2, 27 on PC on this EA account and I didn't qualify :( Edit:  Oh, also played both the free Battlefield games for awhile.

    @xobballox: Same here. I've been playing since 1943 and on BC2 on 360, PS3, and PC. I am a huge BF fan, sunk about 500 hours into the franchise across all platforms. I guess I should have just stuck to one platform, or bought that hunk of crap that was MOH.

    Sour grapes for sure.

    I loved MOH.  I have it on PC.  But just my luck, I got the digital edition from amazon and it's not the LE that is supposedly required for access to the BF3 beta.
