Just look at trump and pompeo twitters, they are probably writing a new lovely post about people of iran and they are trying to say that we sanction the regime and not the people. This is absolutely intersting...

As an Iranian Streamer, I used to play many EA Games Originally, but EA just doesn't care about his customers. Why we can't use Origin in our country? Is EA a part of the government so it can block IRAN because of some politic's *??? Aren't we deserve to play even the games we owned originally in Origin? Is this customer's care service you talking about in Events, E3s and etc?

You Suck EA... You're not Donald Trump or a part of politics... You're a platform for letting people enjoy their moments playing VideoGames.

EA HAS TO ABIDE BY THE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA . NO AMERICAN COMPANY IS ALLOWED TO DO BUSINESS WITH IRAN. Especially not BANKS which do payment processing. So how do you think EA could?

 

Unless you have been living under a rock for years the current sanction law is in effect for at least 5 years or more.

 

Exceptions are only possible for US companies that are of strategic importance for the United States of America.

GO OVERTHROW YOUR EVIL THEOCRACY GOVERNMENT AND MAYBE THINGS CHANGE?

(BTW im pretty sure you are not allowed to play degenerate video games by your sharia law so i wouldnt be too mouthy about it in public maybe the Religious Police would pay you a visit)

That sucks for them, clearly on these forms there are many that are affected by this. Though my heart goes out to them, I am in the US. Why am I being told this is the answer if I'm clearly in the United States? I can connect to hang outside fine. I can do casual speed lists without issue. Every time I queue for ranked speed lists I'm disconnected and get the dr1001 error code. How does it make sense this only happens on ranked when everything else is open to me, including servers from older games?

I'm going to make this reply as short as possible (also throwaway account because what I'm saying is probably completely against EA's Tos).

 

I have a friend in Iran (U.S. here) who I've been working with to try to find a workaround for this issue for a while (though the particular game is TS4, probably not anything relevant to this thread in terms of what games). Issues and fixes so far are as follows

 

Issues:

 

  • Some users cannot create a new Origin account or download origin if user does not have origin prior to when access in certain locations was cut off.

 

Workaround:

 

  • user within geographic confines creates or shares account for/with individual outside geographic confines user emails origin download file to user. This includes creating an email for the user in question, because emails created outside acceptable geographic confines are automatically on a blacklist, or so it seems. 

 

Drawbacks:

 

  • still cannot access Gallery (in TS4), but could, feasibly, access origin updates and possibly expansion packs. I think this would probably nix the hopes of users looking to play live versions of games; there just doesn't seem to be realtime/net access at all. However, I would encourage trying. 

 

  • you'd need to have someone within accepted zones who is willing to jump through some (extremely small, in my opinion) hoops, and who you trust implicitly and vice versa. 

 

To be clear, this likely wouldn't work for live versions of any games. And I'm aware that this isn't monumentally helpful. We haven't tried everything yet; the individual I'm working with had to take a step back for a while due to frustration when it was clear that despite playability, they couldn't access the gallery. If that changes and this account isn't deleted and my IP banned, I'd get back to you. This isn't just an issue with EA/Origin. Games like Aion Online etc, are facing similar problems and it's frankly disgusting. 

 

Edit: We haven't really played around with account transfer (i.e. if you have game data you want transferred from one acc to the other.) Mostly because this involves directly contacting EA and the chances are very slim. I'm also aware that having to create a brand new account just to play offline games is ingloriously subpar but it's the best I can come up with for right now.
