is it worth using the Origin game client?

  1. since its not on Steam I've been thinking of boycotting BF3 but if Origin doesn't blow i might think about it.

  1. Honestly, once you start Origin you can minimize it and forget it. I haven't even looked at Origin once since I installed the game.

    You can do everything through Battlelog. In fact, I just leave my browser logged into Battlelog so I can join a server within seconds of sitting in front of the computer.

  1. Origin blows. But BF3 is worth it.

  2. Honestly, I'd say yes. Origin is unnecessary, but it runs pretty well - doesn't eat up too much resources and you can always close it when you're not playing BF3. The game itself is probably the best large-scale multiplayer since, well, Battlefield 3.

  3. Origin effing sucks. I use it to talk with friends online but the offline/online mode is messed up. Sometimes Battlelog would show us both online but be offline on Origin. We would talk on battlelog but that is a hassle since it requires you to alt+tab out of the game. And I don't know if its just Origin or the game itself but I get a LOT of disconnection/connection errors. The game is fun but it is hell to find/stay in a server.

  4. ORIGIN req's Too-Many Procedures to run BF3, while their 'Cloud' system is a failure!!!
    ~[RUN:'BF3'] => Multi-Step Process. From clicking 'BF3.exe,' ORIGIN opens to process 'BF3'. "THE END???"
    ...NO! Your Web Browser is then used like the normal START Page of any MP-VG. Campaign, Co-Op. & the Massive Multi-Player Scenario seems to be the ONLY function. "Keep these choices in BF3 & its Server."
    ~STEAM Vs ORIGIN:
    The ORIGIN-to-VG Process is similiar to STEAM's (w/o involving a VERY UNNECESSARY step to involve your web browser.) Unless you close the browser at the right-time, it just runs in the background. Like STEAM, ORIGIN in the background is fine, but there is NO PURPOSE to it.
    ~Due to unforseen circumstances, a 2nd install was req'd. Once I began [config.exe] default settings took place. But, maybe 'Cloud' ONLY corresponds to game progress. NO, it's as if this "USER-Progress" app. doesn't exist. On the other hand, STEAM's Cloud System works very well
    `NOTE: Some VGs perform better w/o Cloud; especially when the USER's progress does not match Cloud's. {BORDERLANDs is a good example.}

  6. It is worth it. If you don't have the patience to spend an additional 5 seconds logging into Origin before you launch BattleLog, then this game is not for you. For everyone else, it's totally worth it.
