Odd friend invite advert.

#1 Posted by Vigorousjammer (2502 posts) -

So I launched Origin today, because as much as I dislike it, I have to use it to play Mass Effect 3.

So, Origin's Ad window popped up and said "Learn how you can invite your friends to play Star Wars: The Old Republic"

Now, the weird part about this is I don't own The Old Republic, nor have I ever played it before (like during beta or whatever)... so why would I invite my friends to a game I haven't played? Are they just allowing everybody to invite everybody? If that's the case, why not just let everybody sign up for their own trial account?

Odd stuff, really.

I used origin once, uninstalled it, then haven't re-installed it again. Im not opposed to using Origin, for single player games, at least until they iron out the banning people from games thing. but EA just doesn't have any single player games i want, except for the Sims. and i already bought that on steam.

i dont get the hate with origin. I have been using it since the BF3 ALPHA started way back in august of 2011. I havent had a single problem with it outside of the sporadic downtimes that occur with ALL services at some point or another.

in fact i sometimes prefer origin over steam, but i run them both and am completely satisfied.
