    @EAHelp @OriginInsider I cannot activate the overlay in Titanfall 2 to purchase DLC, despite multiple cache clears and reinstalls. It's Since your release in 2011 you still can't solve the problems that Steam has zero problems with. I want to spend money and cannot.

    @kmdes @Grummz @EA @OriginInsider 1. Am very close to Canada, just a boat ride away. 2. You can go on my channel and find many videos where I am critical, not politely, of EA. 3. I thin you are a blind **** who cannot be practical or pragmatic on this issue.

  • tisha_ables Kittykatslender (@tisha_ables) reported

  • mmose002 mark moseley (@mmose002) reported

    @OriginInsider Unfortunately, Mr. Guru in customer service said there was nothing that could be done because even if the expansions haven't been played, Origin does not offer ANY kind of refund/credit/compensation for expansions.

  • scbjanet janet (@scbjanet) reported

    @OriginInsider I’m having trouble loading Origin on my MacBook. It says “login isn’t available at this time” not sure why though, please help!

  • silvestervitek1 Viteck (@silvestervitek1) reported

    @lfiPratama @OriginInsider I fixed this issue by unplugging a USB Drive that was in my PC at the time. No idea why that worked.

  • EncryptedWisdom A.M.J.✨ (@EncryptedWisdom) reported

  • JekkaLovely Jessica Toots (@JekkaLovely) reported

    @OriginInsider Why the heck is origin down again. It was up long enough to download the newest update and I was able to play the sims 4 and now I go to origin and its online login unavailable. This is ridiculous.

  • fulltime_alien 𝒘𝒆𝒓𝒆𝒃𝒆𝒂𝒓 𝒓𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕𝒔 🐻🌕 (@fulltime_alien) reported

    @OriginInsider googling about this issue only makes me angrier,,all i have to say if **** you origin :")

  • Otterverse Sammy Monroe (@Otterverse) reported

    .@OriginInsider I am having so many problems with your program it’s ridiculous. First the interface won’t load, so I uninstall and try and reinstall, and it refuses to reinstall. The installation process just stops and the setup closes. Please resolve.

  • aenava Andres Nava (@aenava) reported

  • KevinHz19 Kevin H. Hernandez (@KevinHz19) reported

    @OriginInsider ain't loading up right again, and think there is an update on @TheSims recently, I can't update to play it at the moment. Going to have to do small search and research online to see how to fix it.

  • lisamat0 Lisa Mateo (@lisamat0) reported

    @OriginInsider I just spent over $60 on game packs for Sims 4 and now can’t even play due to “Origin online is not available” I went so fair as to resetting my entire computer and downloading again and still the same error. Fix or I want my money back.

    Never experience anything other than problems with @OriginInsider

  • BeeWiccan BeeWicca🐝 (@BeeWiccan) reported

    So @EA @OriginInsider I this its disgraceful that there still isn't a solution for why Origin won't work on my Mac anymore. I paid for a @TheSims expansion pack that I've never been able to use because of this broken helper tool!!

  • mkdragon25 MKDragon (@mkdragon25) reported

    @OriginInsider is this just me or is anyone else having this issue

  • Ratchet_Collie Mason McCall (@Ratchet_Collie) reported

    @OriginInsider How about you guys, please... please fix the issue where games tab out when a notification pops up. I really don't like having to turn all notifications off just to play a game. I know I'm not the only one out there that has the issue.

  • OceanSoulHV Angelica Calderon (@OceanSoulHV) reported

  • bobrossvibes christopher james (@bobrossvibes) reported

    Ok @OriginInsider and @EA I bought the sims 3 for my Mac and all I get is a “unknown error occurred” message. My computer exceeds the min requirements so not sure the issue. If I can’t play I’d like a refund.

  • Mauri081982 Mauri Kokkonen (@Mauri081982) reported

    @OriginInsider @EA Fix your servers first before trying to sell your service!

  • pastaonfire kourt (@pastaonfire) reported

    It’s 4 am, one customer rep disconnected from me and gave me keyboard attitude. No one has fixed my issue. I just wanted to make people I Do not like and kill them, maturely. @EA sucks @OriginInsider sucks I wanna cry more.

  • vGoldenEagleTTV vGoldenEagle (@vGoldenEagleTTV) reported

    @Br00dGames @EA @OriginInsider this is another level of stupid. A fix or an actual explanation is needed.

  • ScottAnthonio Swampy (@ScottAnthonio) reported

  • KjellinJan Jan Kjellin (@KjellinJan) reported

    Another problem with this is that any 12 year old kid can buy @TheSims from the PS store, only to have to wait for 6 years before being able to actually play it. @PlayStation @OriginInsider That doesn't strike me as especially fair.

  • Appliedtruthorg Ryan (@Appliedtruthorg) reported

    Haven’t been able to login to @OriginInsider for a week. None of their chat supporters can help me. Super great. Thanks. @EAHelp

  • IamSentic1 TC Sentic 🐇💛 (@IamSentic1) reported

    Getting sick and tired of trying to log into my @OriginInsider account. Constantly says online is unavailable. Can't update anything. Can't buy anything. Can't go online. @EAHelp Please fix this... it's been 2 days now.

  • WilmyHood WilmyHood (@WilmyHood) reported

    I just want to say that @OriginInsider is the best company you will ever deal with when it comes to a custom PC. Customer service is top notch and notify you every step of the way. I will never buy another PC without their name on it

  • Super_Who_Fan Rya Scholl (@Super_Who_Fan) reported

    Origin is crappy and always down. Can’t get my sims 4 fix 😭😭😭😡😡😡. @OriginInsider fix this or I’m going to stop playing on your stupid site and turn to steam

  • MotivatedGent The Marine 🇺🇸 (@MotivatedGent) reported

    @EASPORTS @EAMaddenNFL @EA @OriginInsider @Xbox not near enough players on PC!! Need to cross platform!! Has to happen, no other fix to this problem. Please take this message serious. I've played Madden since 1994, don't let me down now

  • ShaunJC90 Shaun Cooper (@ShaunJC90) reported

  • GuacamoleBill BillBishop (@GuacamoleBill) reported

    @OriginInsider @EA - Really glad I got to try out Madden 20 using Origin Premier instead of buying the game. Once again, Madden is unplayable garbage on release. Laggy cutscenes, lagging gameplay, just the same old sack of cow manure in a pretty package yet again.

  • MissMarch038 MissMarch038 (@MissMarch038) reported

    @EA @OriginInsider I was wondering if it was a problem with connecting with twitter on my game. I’ve been trying to connect for a week now. It was working then it stop :-( please help me

  • kyallen3 ky allen (@kyallen3) reported

    @OriginInsider EA I love being not able to play games that I BOUGHT for like 7 days now, i don’t know what the problem is over there and none of the clock changes work for me so once again I’m stuck not being able to play my games. PLEASE FIX YO SH*T, tons of other people are probably pissed 2.

  • Clebenstein cleb (@Clebenstein) reported

    @lil_xand @OriginInsider Aaaahhh i see what you mean, yeah that does get a bit tiresome from time to time, had that problem with wolfenstein and that was a pretty big game

  • The_Nince Kenince E'm (@The_Nince) reported

    @OriginInsider something’s up with your latest update. Origin keeps asking for login and verification every day. Remember device doesn’t seem to be working.

  • borderIinebulI delaney (PINNED!!!) (@borderIinebulI) reported

    well the sims updated and now it’s not working so @OriginInsider thanks for messing up my computer

  • SpadesCO_TV SpadesCO♠️ (@SpadesCO_TV) reported

    @BaconCountryYT Just want the game on PC. Unfortunately @Rammer34 @EASPORTSNHL @EA doesnt care about the PC gaming market. Pretends we just dint exist and love ignoring all communication on it. Would be a shame if they used thier own @OriginInsider PC software service to provide us the game too


    @EAHelp when are you guys going to fix the issue with the servers to connect to login to @OriginInsider! I’ve been through every single troubleshooting with your company.


    @OriginInsider @ea @eahelp you guys seriously need to fix the issue of why users cannot login. We spend hundreds of dollars on games and there is no access. This is an issue.
