And I had no clue what ME3 was, so I kept going until I realized there were 5 pages and skipped to the end to see your final post.and that is when i realized i was reading a thread from 2011.
for some reason this thread was highlighted as "unread' in the pc forum. well .. i guess my first necro, after 30+ years of PC use.
The majority of Origin's issues were fixed within the first year. This is a necro thread. Most of the stuff included in the beginning of the thread wouldn't happen today. By your own admission you've never even posted, so you're opinion holds little weight here in that regard. I have used Origin for awhile now and have numerous games on it. While i'm still a "Steam first" gamer, I have had less problems overall with Origin than I've had with Steam. I agree that EA as a game publisher isn't a very good company, but Origin is one of the better things they have actually made. I have had virtually zero problems with Origin over the years, whereas Steam outages happen somewhat regularly.EA are communists when it comes to social media, they restricted the FIFA forums only to users that are actively playing the game, and so forth. The EA Sports forums has junk moderators and most of them don't even know half of anything on the games they moderate for it's sickening. Glad I've never put a single post on Origin forums, I only ever launched Origin to play Battlefield 4 but haven't played that in nearly 2 years now, but I recently got FIFA 17 so that's the only time I ever launch Origin and I don't play online.
Seems things hasn't really changed since 2011.
I've noticed that with the Forza forums as well, they don't even want you to mention Project CARS.I don't know how unusual this type of thing is. I was put on "probation" a few times on the Forza Motorsport forum for making comments that did not praise Forza as the greatest thing in the history of video gaming. No personal attacks or anything violating the rules. The power obsessed moderators would then make derisive comments about me while I was banned from responding(regular forum users could never get away with this). At the same time, I started to notice that game "rewards" I was entitled to were not coming my way. The two things connected? I don't know for sure, but the whole experience convinced me to dump Xbox and made me think that the people who hate Microsoft with a passion may have something there.
This, exactly.You know, digital downloading of games is a somewhat new thing that government may not have looked at. We need laws to protect consumers against this. This is something that should definitely be illegal for a company to do. If it's in the EULA, it should be voided by law.
