EA Don't Care

Aye, this will be pretty good for EA in the long run. I still like to entertain the idea that this was staged.

I think the ones that say "new" above them are the ones that he got with the discount.

Still, that's fucking nuts.

I have a sneaking suspicion that the someone who went to EA support is you.

Anyway, someone that actually lives in an English speaking country and does more than lowly tech support apparently said this:

So conflicting reports here. I'm betting on the latter, probably because I used the exploit myself, but also because banning everyone who exploited this will cause a bigger shitstorm than just chalking it up as a learning experience and moving on. People will jump on free stuff like flies on shit and besides, an executive somewhere just saw their struggling service get a huge leap in numbers. Numbers they can use to get more games to come onto their service; this may be beneficial to EA in the long run.

Ah, well, only time will tell.

EA deciding to let everyone keep their games might be more beneficial than banning a bunch of accounts. More people on their service can only be a good thing; especially when it comes to games most probably wouldn't have even bought in the first place.

@believer258: I found the image of the support query on reddit.

@ripelivejam: @Cloudenvy: @Joker369:

Theft? Gross? I don't think so, I was early to the party and took advantage of a mistake in EA's system. As far as I'm concerned EA can go ahead and ban all of the people who exploited and I'd consider it a better outcome than the current. I can't tell you how much I despise origin, yet these past few days I've had the client open 24/7 and have actually been playing games on it. The fact of the matter is though, that I still would never spend a dime on origin that I didn't have to, the only games I own exclusively on Origin are SW:TOR and BF3, which I could both live without. So just in case someone from EA is reading this: Go ahead, ban me bro! Watch me buy another EA game at full price after that.

With Ea not doing shit, I wish I would have gotten more the one game...

The saddest shit is knowing that todays youth thinks taking advantage of someone elses mistake is ok and should be expected.

I'm surprised you expected these people to be good people.  
Trying to tell them not to be an ass is like telling water not to be wet.

lol "today's youth"? Whether it's a mistake or not, taking advantage of a broken coupon is hardly a criminal offense. I'll bet that every single person in this thread has violated a EULA or ToS at least once in their life time; why are you allowed to pretend you're better than everyone else. Have you ever gone to the grocery store twice within the same week to get more than the per person limit on a sale item? Same thing. It's the difference between sitting back and doing nothing, and capitalizing on the opportunities that lay in front of you.

Personally I like to consider myself an opportunist, because the world isn't fair so why should I be?

@1nfinitum: why so much hate for origin not once in that statement did you say why you hated it or EA.

#270 Edited by 1nfinitum (200 posts) -

@living4theday258: EA is a gigantic offender of horrible business practices. It should be obvious why anyone dislikes Origin/EA at this point, so why should I waste my time explaining it? If I am satisfied with the way a company does business, I will support them without a second thought. Refer to the gold medal on my avatar, and thiswebsite for more info.
