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.
Every time you point out that something is an opinion Jesus shoots a kitten in the face.

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.
