I really wish the anti -origin and anti - battle log people would just get the hell over it. I notice origin much less than steam and battle log is great. It's not like the whole game intro and menu needs to reload each time you start a map. You just go into your browser then load straight into the map, no waiting for the ea or dice logo or some intro video to load up so you can skip it. Its better than BF2 or BFBC2 ever was.
I see absolutely no problem with origin. If anything it runs way better than steam when it comes to the ingame overlay which on steam it crashes soooo much for me. And the only way to get it back it to exit the game all the way and restart the game. Fresh OS installs or not it crashes. Origin never crashed on me to date.
I love the fact that I don't sit through intro videos every time. If anything using battlelog you get into a game faster. No need to wait for the game to load the intro video, sit through the intro video, then log in to the server, then find a game, then load the game.
