You'd think a company of this size would have been able to hire somebody to make this shit work properly when they rolled it out to the public.
I couldn't use my original name (which I've been using for twenty f'in years) because all their shit sites aren't linked properly. I'm talking about EA sites, Bioware sites, and now their EA Downloader/Origin shit.
They recently sent me an e-mail for a FREE game when I pre-ordered BF3 and the damn e-mail link takes you to their (website not Origin itself) and the promo code doesn't work there. The site will try to bill you for the game. So if you got one be sure to use it in the Origin client not the Orgin website.
I'm able to over look the always connected feature while playing the game since I'm always on anyway. And that seems to be the trend with everything else... not to mention all our electronics at work are constantly monitored. But not being able to name more than one of your players (if this is correct) well that is just bull shit and it's getting old quick.
Eidt: I'm hoping we're all just jumping to conclusions.
