The specialist I spoke with last night offered me a free game for my trouble at least. I didnt take it though because it had to be one of their games.


Yeah, that's not really a good deal.. "oh you hate Origin and wish it would die? How about a free game on Origin to make you feel better?"

Well, unless you can find someone who already has the game downloaded and can let you copy the necessary files over, I don't know what to tell you.. and that's assuming it works like steam where they would check your files on disk instead of throwing it out and making you download anyway. :I

Yeah. My choices were basicaly SimCity, Crysis 3, or an older MoH or Dead Space game.

I'm on the phone with them again trying to get only the physical install disk. I'm not even asking for a full retail copy..

So far its been almost 7 hours. 3 chat sessions, 2 agents, and now 2 "specialists". They have come to the conclusion that the problem is not on my side at all and others have had the same problem on different games.

Has anyone else here experienced a problem similar to this?

I didn't know they even had such a thing unless it was made for origin the way some games are "steamworks". I'm sure they're going to try to charge you extra for the physical media, because that $2 disc (+shipping) is really going to cut into their profits.... not as much as lost sales due to the bad press though...

Yeah it turns out that they could not send me a disk to just install it. Finally I got them to send me out a retail copy though. They said it shouldn't take more than a week or 2.
