Command and conquer 3 tiberium wars login failed - can't connect to server

★★★★ Novice

Hi,

 

Just bought the C&C 3: Tiberium wars from the Origin Sale running now. Downloaded and installed the game with no problems. 

When I started it though, it required me to Log in with my EA Credentials in order to "Activate" the game. When I did so, I got an error that it cannot connect to servers.

 

Tried with both antivirus and firewall off - still no luck.

 

Running Win 7 64

 

Hoping for a fast workaround for the problem. I supposed the said activation servers don't exist anymore...

Thank you for your reply, @EA_Nils.

Unfortunately I already requested refund for the games.

 

Can some of the others confirm if this really solves the issue with C&C3 Tiberium Wars? Because as far as I read, this is a problem for at least 2-3 years with people running windows 7 64bit

I'm also having the same problem. I bought the game a year or so ago but redownloaded it today - now it won't let me activate it.

 

I'm sorry but every time I try to play this game I hit some obstacle, either not being able to get the game even working, going through a gauntlet of tasks to log in to the online servers or this. This game and, or Origin is getting ridiculous. It's a pity I can't request a refund or I would.

 

It's not only Windows 7 (64 bit) either. I'm using Windows 8 (64 bit).

It still hasn't been fixed. Just had a runaround with EA support trying to resolve the issue but surprise surprise, nothing they suggested worked.

 

Got a refund on the game, one of the reasons for refund is 'could not connect to server'. Seems pretty stupid to know that people can't connect to the server and do nothing about it.
