Hello EA

Can someone please explain why you can’t invite friends without a Facebook account ? Such a simple question !

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.

@MaryBudden You can also invite a friend if they have an Origin account.

Can’t find or add Origin friends... We all have iPhones. We are all running OS11. We all have Origin accounts. Still can’t enter their IDs to find them - the keyboard doesn’t pop up to allow entry. Just a blank friends list with no way to get any friends in it. This all used to work so well. Now it doesn’t.

No option with origin accounts. Facebook only.
Trying to play my son at Scabble. Both of us signed in to Origin acts. Both have iPhones. No option to add him to a new game without Facebook. I just spent 30 minutes creating us origin accounts so he could play with me and his dad. Not working. Frustrating.

Robpawl, I am having the same problem, and it's now 6 months later. I don't use Facebook and want to play Scrabble with my Mum and other friends but cannot find them via Origin. I have 3 people showing in my Origin friends list, from years ago, and cannot sign up any new Origin friends - even ones playing on iPads like me. I no longer see people's names when I play random opponents - everyone just shows as a number - and it's hard to spot when you are playing the same player again. Playing against others on the internet with Origin used to be a much better experience than now and EA should really put some work into this.

Come on EA, there are all these people wanting to play your Scrabble game and not being able to do it. At least tell us you're trying to fix the problem. There MUST be a problem with your software, no?

Why have so many people got the same problem, trying to find friends on origin to play scrabble against, and you’re doing NOTHING ABOUT IT !,, It says this is possible in the blurb, but it plainly is not, it used to work. Please sort it.

Even if both of us are signed in to Origin, we cannot find each other to play. If this is "working as intended" it stinks.
