    At this stage, the game has done nothing but disappoint me, I picked up my copy from BT Games yesterday (PC, not PS3) got home, and installed the game. After about an hours installation, I was prompted for a patch which took around 15 minutes to download. After that, I decided to check out the single player, and it looked quite promising. I then exited and tried the multiplayer which is kinda why I bought the game in the first place. I get prompted to create a new EA account, so I do so, enter my key, and all required other info, then as I click complete, I get the following "Cannot connect to EA server, please try again later" so being a bit annoyed, I try again, and again, and again, then I decided to leave it, and try later. Came back two hours later, tried again, still the same crap. 5th time was the charm, it eventually processed my details, now I go to find server... I had already checked the saix.net site for servers, they have about 6 listed, just like with MW1, but yet, there is no "add server" option, I need to refresh for servers which takes so extremely long, it's just stupid. Eventually I find a server with the lowest ping (187, wtf?) and click join, then I get prompted to login again ffs. I enter my details, then get prompted for my damn product key AGAIN, which I entered around 4 times, and it kept saying "The key has already been activated on another account" but it accepts my login details? Eventually after more struggle, I was able to log in, yet again, I found no servers with ping under 180ms, which was horrible, so I joined one just to at least see what the game play was like, got in after 5 minutes of loading, then got kicked by Punkbuster because punkbuster just wanted to kick me. Horrible experience.

    And all of those issues are bypassed by playing the PS3 version No patches, no CD-Keys and you are in and playing a MP game within 10 seconds. Plus no lag either. The game is just too popular, hence the Website taking a hammering and most of your problems. The ingame PS3 store is most likely hosted on the same PC based servers as that is up and down, but at least they put up a ticker ingame to tell you this, so you know to steer clear of the store until they have recitified the issue..... I still can't believe that 18 hours in on MP and I've yet to have 1 laggy game. Much better effort this time over BFBC1.

    Bad luck mate!
    i hope u get it all sorted soon!

    When i look at the prices of console games i often wonder if i should return to te PC world but then i'm reminded of things like this.

    I guess we just pay a premium 4 easy set up and go.
    Good luck getting it sorted!

    Yep... I don't mind them sniping up close, but unless you are all snipers, it's pretty frustrating using those snipers as spawns , but what grates me the most is all the players that don't quite know how to play yet, or the ones that are playing for stats... Nothing more frustrating than you being the only one trying to disarm the charge as the rest of the 7 or 8 players are just parking off either inside the house with the charge or outside watching the flashing red lights and not even attempting a disarm. I've disarmed so many charges that are going mental and are about 0.1s away from blowing up. That grates me When the bomb is planted..... You make your way to disarm it or protect the one disarming (me)... not carry on doing what you were doing...

    Amen to that. I've played Sniper a few times on defense and mainly to get the Sniper Badges and Weapons Unlocks, but the other 3 kits are way more fun.

    The squad deathmatch mode thus far has been the most enjoyable as its small vicious firefights with 2-6 squads of 4 players each in specific maps. Pretty hectic and if you have a good squad you can rack up quite a nifty kill count. As stated in previous comments the conquest modes rely on too many people to have an efficient outcome, squad deathmatch can be dominated by a close squad of only 4 players.
