We understand that many Battlefield 3 gamers are getting frustrated at the fact that Battlelog is continuing to issue a ‘Your account is not allowed to login’ error message. We have experienced these problems as well, but we do offer one tip if you are yet to try it.
We are hearing some reports that you can only enter the Battlelog if you pre-ordered your copy of Battlefield 3 through EA’s Origin store online. We can tell you straight up that this isn’t the case, as Battlelog should work with any copy of the game theoretically, as long as you have an EA account.
Setting up an EA account isn’t hard to do at all, and you probably already have your login somewhere if you played Battlefield Bad Company 2. Anyway, to all those that are getting the ‘Your account is not allowed to login’ error, have you actually played a few rounds on the game yet, or did you just try to login to Battlelog straight away?
We were getting those error messages too, but after a few rounds, we found that we could login to Battlelog with no problems, both on the computer and in-game as well since EA sync Battlelog up with your account automatically. At the moment my Battlefeed in-game is empty since I have yet to add any friends to the game, but once you do add people, you’ll see that you can start to track their progress in the game and quickly jump into games with them.
As for the computer interface, you’ll see something like this once you are logged in. This screenshot was taken on the PS3 version of the game – but since I wasn’t on the PC version, I couldn’t use the useful instant join game feature on Battlelog which was a shame, but you can see all activity that is going on, monitor your unlocks, find out what weapon you are getting next and so on.
It’s a great feature actually, as checking out Battlelog online saves up time whilst in-game so you can actually just concentrate on playing and leveling up, then check out your detailed stats on Battlelog the next time you are on your computer.
If you are having problems with logging in to Battlelog, try playing a few rounds first and then log in and see what happens. If you are still having problems, share your issues with us below. Don’t forget to list your favorite BF3 loadout here!
