BF3 "You must be online when logging in for the first time." :'(

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Buddy of mine just got BF3 and he created an EA account on there website and downloaded Origin from the site as well.
When he logs in he gets the error "You must be online when logging in for the first time."
After searching google for hours and watching youtube fix vids we've had no luck.
Have any of you guys run into this problem?
I've searched the forum but found nothing.

I've never experienced or heard of that issue before.

Have you checked that offline mode is enabled or not? I know it shouldn't by default but as long as he has a stable connection, he shouldn't be experiencing any issues.

My next port of call would be EA support and see what they say?

There are tons of reports of this.

It appears to happen on lots of EA games, not just BF3.

We fixed it.
I can't believe we overlooked this.
The date on his PC was set to 2012.
Moved it to 2013 and it fixed everything. thumb.gif
