I've been getting it all day (and since 9/1 with BFBC1, BFBC2 & MoH). The game being new is no excuse for servers crashing -- laggy games, sure, but the servers should work. EA servers have always & will always suck the ace.
same here.. its pretty bad that they said the reason for the beta was to test their servers. the servers were messed up then and still are. their servers failed every time a battlefield game has come out. it gets annoying but this game is pretty fun.
