How Pirates Fixed EA’s Own Game

Could it be the case that EA can’t fix their own game but need those Captain Jack Sparrow wannabes to fix it for them? Well, after another overnight download, I had my answer. And guess what........ (EA, PC)

If they make things work they aren't really pirates.

It's an unofficial third party software service better than the official!

I had similar problems lately with Red Alert 3, it crashed or produced black screen and there was no coop working cause EA is obviously run by some retarded overlords disconnected from human mind as they suck at hiding the fact their way of thinking is way off on this planet. The only way to play the game right was to download the Reloaded version.

Third Party Software Service rules.

If you download a full copy of the game freely from this "service", then yes, it is piracy. I have no problem with doing it, not if I have a legally purchased copy of the game already--let alone if that legit copy fails to work properly. Dowload away with my blessing. Yarr!

Ugh, Origin. Makes me want to puke just thinking about it. Never will i support EA with my wallet, never will i fund their practices and gaming philosophies, and i never have since around ~2007 when it became self-evident and obvious just how cancerous EA is.
Even if they make a good title like Mirror's Edge from time to time, i will still regard that as a trap release where EA simply releases something good to get trust back so it can yet again corrupt and destroy later. Playing the nice card with a knife behind the back.

The author must be new to pc gaming, with over 300 pc games I've jumped through a lot of hoops that he seems to think is unique. Granted most of my issues stem from attempting high frame rate or 4k and 10 yr old games. All new games should run vanilla like nfs. He also mentions steam doesn't have game support, neither does walmart or best buy. However steam forums often have extensive owner troubleshooting threads.

Please fix the article. I noticed quite a few typos throughout.

As for the topic of the article, it's EA's new strategy. Spend less on making the game work, sell it for full price, let the community do the work for free. Profit.
