just bought battlefield 3 and was wondering

just took advantage of that deal for people in India and Australia by getting battlefield for £3 and a few pence .

but i have noticed it takes ages to get a game .

using the origin client .

is this normal ? ?
only played two games as it takes so long , first one took about 4 minutes and second one took about 3 minutes but i did go into a different server on the second game .

If you are using the quick join option or whatever it is then I wouldn't. Search for servers yourself, in fact I've never used the quick join option.

Unless you actually mean the amount of time for the game to load up then sometimes it can take a while but usually its not too bad.

I'm shocked it took you so little time to download the game, took me bloody ages on an infinity connection
 
took about 45 minutes to download .

what i have noticed now is the bloody thing crashed and i couldnt do anything except power down my pc .

have looked on the ea forums and its well know . apparently something to do with the hd audio causing the issue .

any fixes for this ?
anyone had their pc lockup ?
only played two games but it did it on second game half way through .

Long loads can be happen to some games if the game is outputting in 24p.
