Went like this;
"Hey, I pre-ordered BF3 about 3hrs ago"
"OK"
"before I got the email for being part of Alpha, is there any chance I can cancel it and get this offer or get one game added to my account"
"Nope"
"Any reason why?"
... No response...
"Great Support EA, keep up the fails"
You have every right to cancel a pre-order. Try again and just state that you want to cancel your pre-order, don't mention the Alpha tester deal for the free game. Just have your order canceled and place a new one with the special deal.

Just pre-ordered it myself. Wasn't planning on doing it for a while (and didn't really want to get it on Origin) but I got Dead Space 2 for free so I said what the hell.

Just got an email from Dice:

We just wanted to update you on our progress with Battlefield 3. We just completed the Alpha Trial and it was a resounding success. We were able to perform a number of server-related tests, including load testing our back end. As a result of everyone's feedback, we're making a ton of exciting changes to the game. You'll get to check out our progress for yourself in the Open Beta coming this fall, and you will have priority access.
I have no idea why I would have 'priority access' since I don't have MOH LE or pre-ordered on Origin. Unless it's just for the normal beta part of the beta.

Went on LIVE chat and asked about those free games, they asked me for an email screenshot so she could see it, sad thing is, I didn't recieve any email yet so I can't do it.

I didn't get that email.

Now that you mention it, doesn't sound good, they just kinda revealed the BETA dates..

Fall starts on September 23rd, and I doubt they'll have a beta going through October, so probably last week of September is when the BETA will be held.

That's a bit dissapointing, I was expecting to try it before F1 2011 came out.

They said at E3 or right after either one that Public beta be Sept 11 2011. Then they release "TBA" yesterday in their post. Ima guess the TBA is either get you more hyped or they dont know if be ready by Sept 11 or not.

I cant find a source on Sept 11 date on the web anymore, but I swear it was told at E3 or shortly after. I would say anywhere from 11th-25th is when its released, and probably be a week or so long beta.

Later they make it though, more its just gonna turn into BC2 beta.. where basically no bugs where changed from beta to retail. Because they called it a beta instead of a demo....

Actually that last part is not true, they did fix lots of stuff from the BETA to the Final game, like the bullet registry (Hitbox). They also did a nice 40% improvement in performance without any quality loss.

Of course it is a console port and could have been much better, but no way the final game was same as the BETA, they did fix many bugs actually.

I Agree, BC2 performance went up a lot on the retail game compared to the beta and remember a couple of bugs being fixed also.

We willnever see the game look THAT bad ever again, mainly because it was running in dx 9 that is unsupported in the final build. Game will be MUCH better oct 25th

Not really, the Alpha was running at DX11, but the textures were all on low (Although DX11 illumination was damn great!). They wanted to test the load on the servers.

However, like you said, the graphics should be better overall in the BETA or at least in the Final Game.
