how long is your key? is there a semi-colon in the middle? if so, the semi-colon separates two keys, one for BF3, and one for the expansion. Enter them separately.

I got it online from a website( i think i got the last copy as they removed the limited edition for PC. There's no semicolon or anything, it's a one long code with 20 chars.

Complain to the site and then never buy from bad sources again.

You probably got screwed. This is why I never use G2Play.
