    Uplay used to be pretty solid way back in the day without being really intrusive and offering some nice stuff like the ability to get 20-40% off on any game you want if you've played enough other games on there or TONS of GOOD freebies like all Raymans/FarCry/Beyond Good and Evil/etc.. Origin is a fair bit worse than Uplay used to be, bad but not awful.

    @ThoD Uplay used to be solid indeed. Even more so for Humble bundle before IGN bought them. To me, EA would be better off putting FIFA & Madden to rest and becoming Origin inc.; a company that hosts Origin(that is if EA doesn't keel over from the official investigations into lootboxes & the like as well as FIFA being basically the same since 2015).

    Let's be honest, FIFA, Madden and all yearly sports games (EA's PES/Football Manager/NBA Live and also 2K along with some lesser known stuff from other companies) should have never been a thing, it's all stuff that can be changed in a tiny patch (besides adding 1-2 tricks and changing the rosters the games are identical).

    They could have done a PROPER live service instead, selling a game then like MMOs updating it with patches over time with a fairly cheap subscription (eg: 20€ a year on a base 60€ game) instead of full price every year and rendering the past years' versions useless along with any money spent on them for the DLC shit.

    But that wouldn't make them as much money.

    Duh, why do you think they didn't do it? The last thing EA cares for nowadays is quality in their games, it's obvious when FIFA had sponsored ads put in it during development before they even finished the stadium models and microtransactions before putting in the rosters lol
