It takes a god tier hipster to make a comment like that.

I know you're joking but still.

Actually, i like Origin a whole lot.

When i download stuff on Steam, it takes up my whole bandwidth and makes internet browsing slow.

But i can download on origin at 1mb a second, and still browse my sites quickly.

I love it

Doesn't that just limit your download rate?

Like i said with origin, I'd get near 1mb Dl speeds and I could still browse quickly.

Maybe Origin uses a different method to calculate download speed. Like using megabytes per second instead of mebibytes per second.

Mebbi it uses mebibytes to show off the download speed

Actually this guy is just another sucker that EA feeds off.

EA shows your downloads rate as what it downloads uncompressed even though it is downloading a compressed file.

So if Origin says you are downloading at 1mb/s then you are really downloading at 500 kb/s.

This guy is just another reason that EA gets away with some much bs.
