FAQ suggests people make sure their Battlefield Veteran status is up-to-date and to sign-up for some newsletter (god knows if that makes a difference.

Hmm, is veteran status 1942 only or can it be bf2 as well? Looks like I didn't make the first wave.

I did not have an origin account set up and I still received an invite so that seems to not be a factor.

Also, my veteran status is only a 2 so it doesn't need to be very high to qualify either.

Aint that swell, I was a day 1 supporter of battlefield 1942 and the expansions, but was having tons of account problems with their shitty EADM shit when I first tried to use it for crysis so I never registered my battlefield key.

edit: smh, can't even register my retail launch copy on eadm or origin or whatever it's called nowadays.
Worthless pos service.

Veteran is all BF games afaik, and you should be able to add other EA accounts to your main one, it's covered in the FAQ.

Origin accounts don't matter. All EA accounts will be Origin accounts eventually, anyway.

Sure, we have BETA access, but of course you'd never give your paying customers earlier access into the ALPHA. ty EA

Veteran status is your number of eligible, registsred battlefield games minus one.

For example: you have registered BF1942, BF: Vietnam, and Battlefield 2. 3-1=veteran status 2.

Highest possible level right now is 8.

If you've ever had to register an EA game (most likely battlefield) then chances are you have an Origin account already. My EA account that I was forced to make for BF:BC2 automatically became my origin account.

I routinely see people over 10 and I know for a fact I saw a 15 last week. Pretty sure they get this high by downloading all the old demos + play4free + heroes titles.

Origin is just the old ea.com with a facelift and a new name. EA account = Origin Account.

yeah ive had issues trying to register 1943 and BC2 because of some issue preventing me from linking my XBL gamertag to my EA account. Was able to register BF Heroes just fine though.
