    @JNZY_97 @XRaystrikerX @FutSpy @OriginInsider Is this the spam glitch where you get ea access logo instead of Fifa logo for unlimited hours

  • lemurbuerste T (@lemurbuerste) reported

    @XRaystrikerX @FutSpy @OriginInsider the glitch still works with NHL 20, so I hope it will work with fifa

  • sapphire9692 Rebecca Aubin (@sapphire9692) reported

    @Twilightgrl1987 @SimGuruHouts @OriginInsider @EAHelp I hope so to, I know I had this issue... The only other thing I can maybe recommend is uninstalling and then reinstalling orgin, but you may then need to reinstall the games.

  • sapphire9692 Rebecca Aubin (@sapphire9692) reported

    @Twilightgrl1987 @SimGuruHouts @OriginInsider Did you finally get it to work I had the same issue and had to close origin out completely. Then re launch and then it worked

  • simtpal Simt'pal (@simtpal) reported

    @OriginInsider I really like origins games however your pc client is absolutely terrible. Its so unresponsive and just overall has poor UX and GUI options. Please fix that mess. No wonder people chose steam and epic games over Origin. PLS for the sake of sims PLS

  • missmani09 🌺 Miss Mani 🌺 (@missmani09) reported

    Finally able to update my game. I had to install an older version of Origin just for it to work properly. SMFH. Bruh can yall please fix ya crap! @EA @OriginInsider

    @OriginInsider every time I play battlefront 2 it never fails to crash meaning I have to restart my pc, yet my specs are better than what is recommended so, fix your system

  • whoskaylee kaylee (@whoskaylee) reported

    @OriginInsider @PlayApex fix ur trash game plz

  • Daria39400973 Daria (@Daria39400973) reported

    @OriginInsider @_flawlesspickle @EA @EAHelp There's nothing there to help us. I personally did everything that was recommended, but it is obvious that the problem needs to be solved by you. It's so depressing that I've paid so much money and I can't get the access to the games. I'm really pissed off

  • mori_mori_kun Actual Coleslaw🐷 (@mori_mori_kun) reported

    I just want to download the sims 4 update..... but origin has been stuck in offline mode for over a month and nothing I've tried will fix this issue @EAHelp @OriginInsider

  • SpadesCO_TV SpadesCO♠️ (@SpadesCO_TV) reported

    @fuman3 @EASPORTSNHL @TBLightning @Rammer34 @EA @OriginInsider @pcgamer @EASPORTS @Computerworld @OfficialPCMR @pcworld Hence always hitting up @EA @EASPORTSNHL @EASPORTS all the time as well. Bottom line is that's his job, to provide either a product or an answer, and if the problem is from higher then grow a backbone for the players. But he lacks that

    @OriginInsider hello i have an issues on origin i blacked my friend by accident now i can't send friend request

  • ehitsmeyaboi mythoughts (@ehitsmeyaboi) reported

    @OriginInsider fix your shit man, I just wanna play the sims 4 but but origin is telling me online isn’t available, I’ve tried every single fix in the book and nothing is working.

  • DavidEastwickUK David Eastwick (@DavidEastwickUK) reported

    @UbisoftUplay The reason for my annoyance is I do not need a free trial to know I will use the service. @XboxGamePass ultimate and @OriginInsider premium have shown me this is my preferred way to get my games (both cheaper and worked flawlessly though...just saying). so I was waiting months.

  • daniel218s13 Daniel Holland (@daniel218s13) reported

    @OriginInsider #origin my origin is saying online login currently unavailable wont get past login screen. I've check date and time. Uninstalled it a reinstall uninstalled my anti virus and nothing works help please

  • SlutSlippery SlipperySlut (@SlutSlippery) reported

    play years on @battlefield4 with this username no issue.....3 days on @Battlefield and @EA have changed it because it offended someone on a shooting get ****** and refund my money please @OriginInsider

  • theseasfae D i a (@theseasfae) reported

    @OriginInsider @EA I just lost out on over $300 I have spent on @TheSims because I can’t access the servers. Please fix the servers or refund me because the Sims 4 is one of my main coping mechanisms. You aren’t wasting my money considering I’m disabled and broke.

  • MasonTH72 Mason Thompson (@MasonTH72) reported

    @paulfulmer7 @OriginInsider go to filehippo and download the April version of Origin. These idiots screwed up the client with the latest update and are too stupid and lazy to fix it. If you restart Origin, it will force you to update again but you can just delete it and re-install the April version again.

  • BrandonCampbeII Brandon Campbell (@BrandonCampbeII) reported

    Why is the @OriginInsider client such a garbage platform. Can't even update Apex without it freezing on 373.74mb or 8.83gb. I can't cancel the update or fix the files.. trash..

  • CWSound Chris Woodcock (@CWSound) reported

    @EA @OriginInsider almost an hour chatting to your tech support/them copying and pasting froma script to still not have the issue with origin not updating on my system, Steam works brilliantly though..........

  • fabien_cj fabian (@fabien_cj) reported

    @OriginInsider Hello. My starwars battelfront 2 for Origin suddenly doesn't launch. It doesn't seem to be an error as there's no warning screens when I launch it, it just doesnt launch at all. I already tried uninstalling and re-installing the game but didnt work

  • TrueNateDogg TrueNateDogg (@TrueNateDogg) reported

    @EAHelp @OriginInsider I cannot activate the overlay in Titanfall 2 to purchase DLC, despite multiple cache clears and reinstalls. It's Since your release in 2011 you still can't solve the problems that Steam has zero problems with. I want to spend money and cannot.

  • JoharySpark Johary (@JoharySpark) reported

    @holly_8123 Booo! My game loads, just not origin or the gallery ...they need to fix it soo. @EA @OriginInsider

  • Khan_Krum_YT Khan Krum Gaming (@Khan_Krum_YT) reported

    @kmdes @Grummz @EA @OriginInsider 1. Am very close to Canada, just a boat ride away. 2. You can go on my channel and find many videos where I am critical, not politely, of EA. 3. I thin you are a blind **** who cannot be practical or pragmatic on this issue.

  • tisha_ables Kittykatslender (@tisha_ables) reported

    Hey @OriginInsider you might wanna fix your ******* launcher. It’s been down for some people nearly a month.

  • mmose002 mark moseley (@mmose002) reported

    @OriginInsider Unfortunately, Mr. Guru in customer service said there was nothing that could be done because even if the expansions haven't been played, Origin does not offer ANY kind of refund/credit/compensation for expansions.

  • scbjanet janet (@scbjanet) reported

    @OriginInsider I’m having trouble loading Origin on my MacBook. It says “login isn’t available at this time” not sure why though, please help!

  • silvestervitek1 Viteck (@silvestervitek1) reported

    @lfiPratama @OriginInsider I fixed this issue by unplugging a USB Drive that was in my PC at the time. No idea why that worked.

  • JekkaLovely Jessica Toots (@JekkaLovely) reported

    @OriginInsider Why the heck is origin down again. It was up long enough to download the newest update and I was able to play the sims 4 and now I go to origin and its online login unavailable. This is ridiculous.

  • fulltime_alien 𝒘𝒆𝒓𝒆𝒃𝒆𝒂𝒓 𝒓𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕𝒔 🐻🌕 (@fulltime_alien) reported

    @OriginInsider googling about this issue only makes me angrier,,all i have to say if **** you origin :")

  • Otterverse Sammy Monroe (@Otterverse) reported

    .@OriginInsider I am having so many problems with your program it’s ridiculous. First the interface won’t load, so I uninstall and try and reinstall, and it refuses to reinstall. The installation process just stops and the setup closes. Please resolve.
