Origin was working fine like a month or two ago. Come back, download bf1 doesnt work. Download bf 5 doesnt work. Error "cannot connect to EA servers to activate game. Found out its all origin games that wont launch. Tried all forum solutions nothing works. tried live chat nothing works just tells me to write it down here. Whats the point of EA support again? and if someone could help thatd be awesome

Check if right clicking both games in Origin and then choosing Repair has an effect here.

 

Rebooting and Repairing a second time is Advised if the first go does not help, thanks.

Well i too had that same problem. tried everything like clearing dns cach to forwarding ports. but none didnt work. but when you run orgins and Bf1/5 in administrative mode. it gave no errors. just run both orgin and battlefield always in administrative mode( right click orgins, select properties. go to comparability settings and click RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR. DO the same for bf1) . and also make sure to clear Temp and %temp% in windows to avoid any issues with the game!

if administrative method doesnt work. copy the games to some other drive or folder. delete orgins(uninstall from Control pannel) install orgin or ea play again. sign in. click the game what you want to download. when it started. stop it and quit it. now copy the games back. and when you open orgins again. it will verify it. do it for all the games!
