    @Crosimmer @OriginInsider Would there be a way to get rid of it? The lag or will it always be there?

  • LIPC_network ProLeague Italia PC (@LIPC_network) reported

    @ORIGINPC @OriginInsider Did you fix the Pro Clubs problem, which didn't allow to start friendly games? This would have been a great patch, after you introduced this annoying bug to the game a few days ago. Many people are waiting to get this fixed. ASAP!

  • AyoItsCookie ✨Hannah✨ (@AyoItsCookie) reported

    I don’t know if it’s @OriginInsider or @TheSims but I can not play sims 4. Is there some issue I’m not aware of?

  • Crosimmer Crosimmer (@Crosimmer) reported

    @FormerlyPhoenix @OriginInsider No, the game would just be able to use over 4GB RAM. Memory leaks, bugs and routing issues (the main cause of lag) would still remain. Not to mention other possible issues (Mac 64-bit launch wasn’t really smooth).

  • IvyFolkwhore big tittie soft gf (@IvyFolkwhore) reported

    @OriginInsider i just wanna play the sims 4. Fix ur ****.

  • variablygeeky Ken | Geeky (@variablygeeky) reported

    I give some launchers some crap. Like @OriginInsider? It is pretty bad. Like... I'll play Apex on Steam so I don't have to use it bad. However, @Ubisoft has got to have WORST launcher. Not sure why I expected Ubisoft Connect revamp to actually fix anything from Uplay.

  • KCPatefield Kelly Gibbons (@KCPatefield) reported

    @OriginInsider the Origin app on my computer wont go online but I have internet. Is this a general issue? I just wanted to play sims 4 :'c

  • sminmorph Oskarrrr (@sminmorph) reported

    i really don't understand why I have to install @OriginInsider, a client that EA is getting rid of instead of their new service to play Squadrons on the Epic Game Store?
