    I find it weird that @Steam is allowing full refunds on BF 2042 no matter how long you've been playing (Because broken game is broken), but @OriginInsider doesn't. Weird. Serves me right for using origin lol.

  • kayleighmay1991 Kayleigh May (@kayleighmay1991) reported

    @TheSims @EA @OriginInsider Does the Sims team actually plan to fix the Rocket bug that hasn't worked for 6 months? I find it laughable that an item required for careers, aspirations and multiple challenges can't even be interacted with for so long without anything being done...

  • _tanner513 tanner (@_tanner513) reported

    @OriginInsider fix your stupid ******* servers on computer

  • TheRarestGhost RareGhost (@TheRarestGhost) reported

    @EAHelp @OriginInsider @Battlefield Can you help me with my Battlefield V. It been lagging pretty bad and idk why though. The week I got the game it ran fine, around 140 frames. But now I’m getting only 25 frames. Can you please help me. I just want to play the game.

  • VLCrypto1 VLCrypto (@VLCrypto1) reported

    @OriginInsider Please fix your client. Downloading 60-80GB Games @ 4-9MB/sec. isn't fun. And no my bandwith is fine as i could download it with 1000MB/sec.

  • Rvdrko1000 Caymen Smyth (@Rvdrko1000) reported

    @primegaming @EAStarWars @OriginInsider It would be great if sign in wasn’t broken keeps saying it’s unavailable when I go to sign in

  • AFathwan htaf🇵🇸 (@AFathwan) reported

    @OriginInsider @EASPORTSFIFA fix your ******* game, alt-tabbing out of nowhere because of a ******* pop up from origin? costing me a hard game, not the first time it happened

    @_Converter_ @EA @OriginInsider I once had similar issues but (Jerzy_Techz on instagram) fixed my account..he's really good....🤌🏽

  • AnotherJake Jake Marsh (@AnotherJake) reported

    @OriginInsider I would like to be able to login. Ya know, to actually play your games. Hard to play when your launcher doesn't work. What is the business case of a terrible launcher that everyone hates?? Do customer research.

  • HeraldSims Herald Sims (She\Her) (@HeraldSims) reported

    @zipelz @OriginInsider @EA I have had this happen, ea chat and phone support wanted us in the same room while chatting in order to fix it. We eventually did a game code from a trusted site another simmer gave me instead. And I use it a lot now. Origin can be............. Yeah. LOL

  • zipelz ItsJayiam - Aussie Youtuber, Sims4 (@zipelz) reported
