Battlelog Plugin Broken and BF3 Launch Bug

When I go to join a server it asks me to download and install the Battlelog Web Plugin, from my knowledge I thought I had the latest version, and it didn't come up with the Blue Tab when I loaded up Battlelog, which I thought was strange. Anyway, I click on 'Open Game Manager' and it shows up with everything up-to-date.

I tried the techniques in this thread: http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/forum/threadview/2832654348504291342/ [battlelog.battlefield.com]

Of which doesn't work, now I am legitimately without the Battlelog Web Plugin, I've returned to Battlelog and the Blue Update Tab hasn't shown up and I still cannot join a server.
I've logged in and out of Origin to see if it would update when I found another bug...

Battlefield 3 won't launch.
I checked to see if there was any corrupted or missing files, which downloaded 170KB of files; but still doesn't launch.
I've never, after every bug that has happened, have never had to reinstall Battlefield 3; and I'm NOT going to download the 20GB of patches and DLC now.
I've also checked Task Manager to see if the bf3.exe process was running, which it isn't.

Also at one point, not sure how to replicate it; but while Battlelog was open, I tried to launch Battlefield 3 and Origin crashed.
Edit: For the Origin crashing, it seems that if you open Battlefield 3 more than once, maybe 3 times from the launch failing it will happen.

Not a good transition to Battlefield 4 guys. Have fun fixing and troubleshooting...

I got a very similar problem, and it has happened to me twice now. I get a a message box telling me I need to download the web plugin, after that I'm able to join servers etc, but 1-2 sec after I spawn, the game freezes, and the only solution to that I know off so far is to delete the bf3 folder, and re download the game again. And having to downloading 35GB isn't very fun...

They've stopped caring about BF3 a long while back. They already said they're moving forward to work on BF4 (more like BF3.1... or BF3.Broken). I literally can't even check out 90% of battlelog, nor can I even join a game or play the offline campaign. I am totally locked out of BF3 and they don't care at all.

battlelog is still borked totally and completely. I'm locked out of a game I overpaid quite a bit for (thanks a lot, DICE) to be ALPHA TESTING it. Not even beta. This is like pre-ALPHA crap. Does the game launch? If not, go back to drawing board.

That's where it's at right now. Exclusive use of battlelog has always been a rotten terrible idea. Exclusive, at the expense of an in-game direct launch capability, is a piss poor idea. Seems about right for DICE these days.

listen guys I finally found out why I coudnt join a server and had no ping on any server. I had upgraded to internet explore 10 thats what screwed my game up. All I did was load google chrome Origin updated the browser and away we go for some reson BF3 does not like internet explorer 10 you can always switch between browsers

Mines the Best -

So I have had these same issues with the plugin not supporting mozilla firefox or IE9 and therefore rendering no support to play.

Ive done 3-4 fixes on installs
2 reinstalls from library
and now im getting a DLL missing from EAfiles......

I paid AUD$90 for this game and today I was going to buy the BF4 BUT because the DLL missing file and all these reviews - I'm waiting... Why should I buy this extra DLC if you can't even look after your products


Pathetic

I don't have IE10. I know they fucked up the javascripting for their webpage big time. It won't even run the java in Firefox of MSIE8.

Bad code. Literally, BAD code. I could take the time to post over half a dozen javascript errors that pop up when I try to load the page, but honestly?

Why the hell didn't DICE do this when they freaking CODED it? You can't release crap javascripting without testing and debugging it. Well, that sums up DICE's business model and their quality assurance all in one perfect example. Boycot BF 3.1 (I'm sorry, I mean "BF 4") because their business deserves to fail at this rate.

I have had BF3 and all the DLC since February. I only got to Operation Guillotine, and still, not once have been able to use Multiplayer. Cheers to this wonderful company.

Alpha! I played the Alpha and I can definitely say it worked a whole lot better than it does now
