Hi @Ciocolata16,

 

This is working as intended.

 

From the FAQ:

If my friend is not signed up with Facebook or Origin, can I play them online?

In order to play online against a friend, both players need an ID through either Facebook or Origin.

 

If I am not signed up with Facebook or Origin, can I still play someone online?

You can play random opponents by clicking on the Random Opponent icon at the top of the menu screen. If you want to play with friends, you’ll need to sign in through Facebook or Origin

Hi,

I do not use Facebook. I bought the game hoping I could play with my friends using the Origin account. The game says: log in via Facebook or Origin. While all of us are logged in via Origin, there is no option to add each other or invite each other to play. Therefore, at the moment we all bought the game but we can't use it the way it is described.

My friend is signed up to Origin and so am I and we used to be able to play but neither of us can now find the other in order to invite one another to play. How do we fix this?

Hi guys, 

 

What device are you playing on? (model and OS) and do you know what device your friends are using? Thanks in advance.

I'm having the same problem.

My husband and I have signed up to origin, but are unable to find each other.

I am on android and he is iOS...is that the problem and can it be resolved?

Having the same problem. If everyone is having this problem and there seems to be no solution, perhaps the app purchase fee should be refunded. This is ridiculous. One would think EA would be able to come up with a solution to such a common problem or at least try too.
