Pretty sure the launching from Battle Log thing was beta only. They say they have moved almost all of the stuff that Battle Log did in the beta into the game including but not limited to finding servers and squad management.

It still requires Origin though, even though so far it's pretty much just like running a second copy of Steam that I just ignore unless I want to play something there.

There were rumors that EA and Steam had worked out there differences and that it might be coming to Steam. If it does, I really hope we can use our CD keys in Steam as I would prefer to have all my games in one place, but I really doubt that will happen.

The dvd requires origin too?

The download version was cheaper because you don't have media or shipping costs. Some people want the media so they don't have to d/l such a big file.
