You guys are the dummies that pre-ordered. I am waiting for the final product.

I didnt preorder it, I bought MOH LE and got into the alpha and the beta. I'll get it eventually... maybe after they have some time to patch it and fix it.

Assuming they were smarter about their patching process this time, and given the fact they don't have to put all their updates through Steam first, that should be very close to launch.

I didn't ask why.

I will like the game as well. I just decided to wait for the release. Also I am making fun of him for pre-ordering and then complaining.

I wonder if they intended to release it in it's current state and patch it later... like most games do now. That might be a reason to pull control from Steam so that they can finish the game without the hassle of dealing with Steams QA for patches. Makes sense when you look at how bad some of these games are when they get released... and then pulled like Dead Island...

I like the beta so far. Especially Caspian Border.

You will rarely see a game into gold status months before release. It's usually a couple weeks

What's the source for that?

I haven't gotten to play it yet, but honestly I'm expecting BF3 to be decently buggy at launch... Hell, even now (at least before the R11 patch, haven't played much after) BC2 crashes way more often than any other game I've played (most don't crash at all) and I still get the bug where the screen flashes black.

PC beta opens up tomorrow. Hope the servers don't get slammed so bad that I can't play . . .

Very possible. The lack of Steam overhead is definitely a positive for them, regardless of how the majority of us would prefer Steam.
