Origin does something right for once?

Quick, everybody to the bomb shelter, apocalypse time.

Certainly better, but still terrible overall.

Why would I want to support a service that at ANY time thought it was ok to ban me from product that I PAID for because I disagreed with them or any other arbitrary reason.

It's funny because Steam does this too...not as severe as Origin, but to the point where SPUF mods get abusive over it.

Steam won't remove you from online completely for being an idiot. Ban from forums is a ban from forums, VAC ban is a VAC ban, etc. It's not global.

Because you agreed to the Terms of Service and broke one of those terms.

Did you misread my post? I didn't ask "How" they did it, I asked why I would support a product that does so. Relevant to this comment I have never used Origin and have no intentions to because of issues like this.
