    Basically, nothing happens until Thursday. Dice have had all their YouTube puppets in and JackFrags and all his cronies will be releasing their BFV videos on Thursday 8th.

    There'll also be another dev talk on Thursday, as well. This one will be on Grand Operations. This is probably what most Battlefield players will be anticipating this week.

    Most importantly, possibly, is the dev blog on Thursday explaining how to actually play Grand Operations. This is with the devs rather than YouTubers. So this might actually be worth a look.

    I don't know about all this Twitter stuff. I've hardly ever been on Twitter. Seems like a competition on digital typewriters a bit like the forums. Avoid.

    Friday the 9th is launch day for all those who have paid through the nose for BFV. For all those of you who are NOT about to die because you didn't fall for it, I salute you! o7

    Oh look There's a new trailer on Friday. Seems like they don't expect everyone to be playing today.

    And finally, Dan is 'hyped' for the cynical early access release of BFV.

    Some people just have EA Access or Origin Access already, not just to play BFV early. It's a good deal for playing their sports titles. We didn't fall for anything, just know a good deal when we see one.

    @danmotoxx do you know when the forums will be expanded so we can start recruiting and discussing specifics for each platform?

    i bought the premier membership for 1 month even though i pre-purchased the deluxe, simply to cut my waiting time. I don't care, i just wanna play. And i've wasted alot more money on other stuff. £15 is basically nothing, and for it i get to start having fun 1 week earlier.

    This might have been a strategic choice made by DICE/EA due to the low pre-orders, to be honest.

    How much salt did you put on your eggs this morning? Calm down there, man. Some of us are quite excited to get hands on with BFV by any means possible.

    lol that was great

    Hello guys, did anything change with the Origin Access Premier program? Because BFV just disappeared from my games library and from Origin Access Premier games vault... :)

    It looks like BFV is still included in the Origin Access Premier for me.

    Oh so Friday, November 9th is the Battlefield V Official Launch day... Good to know. I would appreciate being able to play the game I bought on it's launch day.
    I might be neat-picking but I guess I'm just salty about the release schedule.

    Granted, warslag's comment might have been a bit too harsh, but you can't deny that we have a good reason to be disappointed about the release schedule. By "we" I mean people that pre-ordered the game in order to be able to play it as soon as possible.

    I think that everyone on this forum is excited to get their hands on BFV ASAP, but it doesn't make it fair to ask for extra money on top BFV Deluxe (already high) price to get access to it.

    Yeah, it's not a life changing sum, but imagine a world where everyone who paid for a product get access to it on the same day. Just a thought.

    This is probably the exact reason, but does it make the decision right? I think not, just more understandable.

    I was so disappointed on that move as well, didn't cancel nor bought the ea access, but just... disappointed. :(
    Same here. Feels bad, man.

    Early access for premier on the 9th is a slap in the face for those who bought Deluxe. Just saying.

    100% so true, If someone already paid the full amount for the title, they should get the title first. Pre orders should be the 9th with Ea access and premier.

    Should be according to who? They are advertising Origin Premier with this way. And I do not see the problem with it. :)

    (Only problem I see that there is no when Rentable servers are out for BFV, but that's another story)

    I can agree to that. Very good description also. A slap hurts and although not really causing any damage really makes you feel mistreated, and for no good reason in this case.

    When you bought the deluxe edition, they said that it will have an early access. And it's true. When Origin Premier came, it was advertized that it will be even earlier access, so I do not see any mistreat there. Sure it could feel like that for the people who bought Deluxe, but it shouldn't.

    I can agree it shouldn't but it does anyway. Basically why 'slap' is the perfect word for it. It was mainly a timing thing. I would most likely not have bought the Deluxe package if I knew this Premium access would be announced a week after. Let's say you have gone for Premium access, assume now they'd start a new service today called 'Platinum' access. It costs 2$ more each month but you get access to all new steam games and rock star games too + can start playing battlefield today. Would it feel totally ok? I think many would feel slightly slapped in the face even though they did not miss out on any promise given.

    By the time I bought Deluxe, it actually said 'be the first to enter...' which was later removed and it only says 'early access' now. Actually also Premier marketing lies slightly as it says "get access 11 days before anyone else" which is not true as it is not 11 days before the 'early access' customers.

    Well, if you really care about playing earlier, some people has been cancelling Deluxe order and buying Origin Premier instead. :)

    I contemplated it and I'd do it if it was a fist stroke to the chin but for a slap... no (I'll stick to BF1 a few days more. With some luck I get the one missing medal listed for me next week.).

    Definitely understand and see the frustration, everyone. I'm collating feedback and sending along to our teams.
